The Line: UNM Football Coach Faces Suspension

February 16, 2018 – University of New Mexico football coach Bob Davie faces a 30-day suspension without pay over numerous allegations, ranging from using racial slurs to the cover-up of a rape and other crimes. Although a law firm hired by UNM found no specific evidence to back allegations, UNM president Chaouki Abdallah said the suspension is based on his determination that Davie had violated some university policies. Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists discuss the allegations and punishment.

Re-connecting With A Healthy Lifestyle: Diet and Exercise

NMiF: healthy living

October 6, 2017 – Chronic illnesses, particularly diabetes, is a longstanding public health concern in many tribal communities in the Southwest. Native Americans are also more likely to be obese than many other groups, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has been associated with diabetes and pre-diabetes.

Public health experts point to many factors that contribute to high rates of diabetes in Native American tribes. Fresh produce is often not available in remote reservations and many people live in areas that lack gyms, parks, or even sidewalks. Families that rely on staples from the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations have to make the most of commodity boxes that were filled for decades with processed food that were high in salt, fat and calories.

In the latest installment of our series “Re-connecting with a healthy lifestyle,” producer Sarah Gustavus and correspondent Antonia Gonzales examine how some individuals have overcome those challenges and are now sharing information and resources with others in their community.
