7/6/12 New Mexico in Focus Audio: Episode 601
**Please Note: There is no THE LINE Opinion Panel this week.**
We’ve had fires, drought, and our second hottest June ever to contend with…and summer’s just barely begun. No surprise, then, that water has been on the minds of many New Mexicans. NEW MEXICO IN FOCUS producer Matt Grubs sits down with environmental journalists Laura Paskus and John Fleck to talk water policy.
Then, with the 2012 election just four months away, the focus is turned on the voting power of the female majority. NMIF host Gene Grant sits down with Martha Burk, woman’s rights activist and author of “Your Voice, Your Vote – The Savvy Woman’s Guide to Power, Politics, and the Change We Need,” to talk about what women should know this election year.
In the spirit of Independence Day, NEW MEXICO IN FOCUS presents two installments of the “Moments in Time” series this week, including a look at the USS New Mexico and Japanese Internment Camps.
Martha Burk, Women’s Rights Advocate and Author
John Fleck, Environmental Journalist
