The premiere of “Our Land,” part two of “Brain Drain,” and The Line Panel

NMiF: Our Land

This week New Mexico in Focus premieres a new series, “Our Land: New Mexico’s Environmental Past, Present and Future.”   Correspondent Laura Paskus examines the long-term impact of the Las Conchas wildfire in the Jemez Mountains.

Correspondent Gwyneth Doland continues to look at counteracting the “brain drain” of young, talented New Mexicans leaving the state for jobs and economic opportunities. In this second of a four-part series,  Ms. Doland sits down with Terry Brunner of Grow New Mexico and Guadalupe County Hospital’s Christina Campos to discuss what’s being done in rural communities.

NMiF host Gene Grant and the Line panelists take on some of the top stories in news headlines this week, including how the race to become New Mexico’s future governor is shaping up, and what tighter financial controls will mean for the UNM athletic department.
