This week on New Mexico in Focus, State Forester Tony Delfin gives insight to Sarah Gustavus on his department’s efforts to prepare for wildfires in the coming months. While more rain for the region is expected for this spring and summer, one must still be mindful of conditions that can lead to wildfires and grassfires.

The program airs Friday nights at 7 p.m. on channel 5.1 and appears online on the NMiF website 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.

Host Gene Grant discusses with 2015 Boston Marathon winner Caroline Rotich her stunning finish in the race, which captured the attention of the country. Rotich is originally from Kenya, but lives and trains in Santa Fe.

Also this week, Grant and The Line opinion panelists discuss national headlines on police brutality and the swearing in this week of new U.S. Attorney, Loretta Lynch. The Line will also debate new research on earthquakes caused by fracking.
