it’s been a good, if not really busy, week here in Farmington. here’s a quick rundown before i run off to Albuquerque for my weekend:
a pretty sad event was an axe attack here in town, in what police suspect was gang-related violence. the gentleman in the photo, who looks emotionally distraught, came on scene with the information his brother was attacked with an axe — and he understandably suspected the worst. he is being taken into custody here after police reacted to his reaction (that’s ambiguous, i know, but this may be an ongoing thing). we also ran a story about children in what are essentially safe-houses through Navajo Ministries, and that was a lot of fun to do. the fourth and fifth photos were for a preview of the local farmers’ market. the photo of the guy bending over the irrigation ditch has had sudsy, polluted water this season, and his crops didn’t grow. we did a story on the situation.
thanks for looking
