This week on New Mexico in Focus, Richard B. Stolley, journalist and former editor of Time, Life and People magazines talks about his life in journalism and the current state of the profession.

The program airs Friday nights at 7 p.m. on channel 5.1 and appears online at www.newmexicoinfocus.org shortly thereafter. The show rebroadcasts Saturday at 5 p.m. on channel 9.1. and again on Sunday at 7 a.m. on channel 5.1.

The panel looks at jobs in New Mexico and what it takes to lure companies to the state. The promise of much-needed jobs in Cibola and McKinley counties comes with a history, as a mining company seeks uranium on environmentally and culturally sensitive lands.

Also, a discussion over a last minute tax package, rushed through the Legislature, that has an overall impact on New Mexico's economy. Lastly, the panel looks at recent instances of high school sports players chastised for speaking Spanish during competition.
