ONCE AGAIN LAWMAKERS ARE TRYING TO CLOSE A LOOPHOLE THAT LET A FORMER UNM PRESIDENT OFF THE HOOK FROM CRIMINAL CHARGES. DEMOCRATIC SENATOR JACOB CANDELARIA AND REPUBLICAN REPRESENTATIVE TIM LEWIS ARE CO-SPONSORING A BILL THAT WOULD MAKE IT ILLEGAL TO PROMOTE PROSTITUTION ONLINE. INVESTIGATORS SAY FORMER UNM PRESIDENT CHRIS GARCIA HELPED SCHEDULE PROSTITUTES ON AN ONLINE FORUM, SOUTHWEST COMPANIONS, THAT CONNECTED PROSTITUTES AND JOHNS. GARCIA'S CHARGES WERE DROPPED BECAUSE UNDER STATE LAW, AN ONLINE FORUM CAN'T BE CONSIDERED A HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION. I THINK IT NEEDS TO BE FIXED RIGHT AWAY, BECAUSE THE MESSAGE IS OUT THERE THAT SOMEBODY'S GOTTEN AWAY WITH IT. IT'S OPEN AND WE NEED TO CLOSE IT. I THINK IT'S A COMMON SENSE ISSUE AND I THINK IT'S AN ISSUE NEW AND UP TO THE GOVERNOR'S DESK THIS SESSION. THE SAME BILL PASSED THE HOUSE WITHOUT A SINGLE NO VOTE LAST YEAR BUT DIED IN COMMITTEE ON THE SENATE SIDE.

CHANGES ARE COMING TO A CATHOLIC CENTER ON UNM'S CAMPUS. BUT PARISHONERS SAY THINGS ARE FINE THE WAY THEY ARE. "WE DON'T WANT A CHANGE. WE DIDN'T ASK FOR THE CHANGE. THE ARCHBISHOP HAS MADE THIS CHANGE WITHOUT CONSULTING US." THE NEWMAN CENTER HAS BEEN RUN BY DOMINICAN FRIARS SINCE 1950. ARCHBISHOP MICHAEL SHEEHAN SAYS THE CURRENT CLERGY IS NOT RECRUITING ENOUGH STUDENTS INTO PRIESTHOOD. SHEEHAN WILL REMOVE THE DOMINICAN PRIESTS AND BRING IN OTHERS FROM THE DIOCESE. THE CLERGY SAYS THIS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE PARISH, EVEN SONGS AND SEATING. WE SPOKE WITH FAMILIES WHO HAVE BEEN WITH THESE PRIESTS FOR DECADES. "THEY ARE SUCH SUPPORT TO US AND WE LOVE THEM DEARLY AND TO HAVE THEM YANKED AWAY WITH NO NOTICE OR COMMUNICATION IS TEARING US APART, JUST SWEEPING AWAY OUR HEARTS. IT REALLY MAKES US DOUBT WHAT'S THE FUTURE OF OUR COMMUNITY IN HERE WITHOUT OUR DOMINICAN LEADERSHIP." SOME PARISHIONERS TELL US THEY'RE THINKING ABOUT LEAVING THE NEWMAN CENTER. OTHERS HAVE STARTED A PETITION IN HOPES OF STOPPING THE CHANGE. IT HAS ABOUT 900 SIGNATURES SO FAR.

PARISHIONERS SAY THEY AREN'T SURE WHAT THEY WILL DO IF THE PRIESTS LEAVE. IF IT'S NOT BROKEN, DON'T TRY FIX IT AND THIS PLACE HASN'T BEEN BROKEN AND THIS PLACE IS WORKING LIKE A CLOCK AND SHOULD BE THE MODEL FOR HOW A CATHOLIC CHURCH SHOULD BE RUN THE PARISHIONERS ARE SUBMITTING A PETITION TO THE ARCHBISHOP ASKING HIM TO RECONSIDER. SO FAR, THE DIOCESES HAS DECLINED TO COMMENT ON THIS STORY.
