This week, local officials talk about the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, including New Mexico U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján. On a much more pleasant note, we hear about a new park coming to an East Mesa neighborhood in Las Cruces. Fred Martino highlights the economic and environmental benefits of parks with some timely research. Envrionmental relief is more important than ever in New Mexico, as the state faces enormous challenges due to climate change; we'll take a closer look at that issue and the opportunities it presents with the renewable energy business. All that, plus more of the week's top stories and Walt Rubel's thoughts on federal executions during a lame duck Presidency.
