Custom Cake Shop in Santa Fe, NM?

santa fe new mexico
Q-mama asked:

I know this isn’t the right place for this question, but YA has no categories for New Mexico and my question got lost in the “general” category. Can anyone recommend a good custom cake shop in Santa Fe, NM? I need to make a unique cake for a big 70th birthday event. I know restaurants in the area, but I don’t know any bakeries/cake shops. Please recommend any place you have used who can make a delicious and attractive custom design. Provide website if you can. Thank you.

**Yahoo, you need sections in dining, travel, local biz for all 50 states! C’mon.

Santa Fe considers hiring illegal immigrants as police?

santa fe new mexico
Linda L asked:

SANTA FE (AP) — The Santa Fe Police Department is considering the possibility of recruiting Mexican nationals to fill vacant police jobs.

Sgts. Gillian Alessio and Marvin Paulk, who are in charge of the department’s recruiting and training, said Tuesday they are considering alternative approaches to fill 20 vacancies on the city’s 155-person police force.

But Police Chief Eric Johnson said New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy regulations prohibit non-citizens from serving as police officers.

“Every day, we get approached by young men and women from Mexico who are in the country legally but are not naturalized,” Alessio said.

“There is a huge pool of people who are dedicated, hardworking and trying to become citizens of this country. They would like nothing better than to devote their time to protecting the communities that they live in,” she said.

Isn’t this outrageous? Now the police force wants cheap labor and fakes a shortage.

Which is a good natrual spring near Jemez Springs New Mexico?

santa fe new mexico
pixiedragon asked:

I’m going to Jemez / Taos / Santa Fe / Albuquerque in early October and I had hoped to enjoy the natural hot springs. The ones I found require a long hike to get to them. I have arthritis and cannot hike very far (less than a mile) I found one called Spence Hot Springs that doesn’t seem to be a very far hike. Does anybody have first hand knowledge of this spring? I was reading that it was clothing optional but that nudity was illegal. I also read that it had gotten trashy and was even a mention of feces. Please help!
