Local news is in a crisis around the country, and in New Mexico in particular. New Mexico has 4 counties with no newspapers and 20 counties with only one newspaper, according to “news deserts” research at the University of North Carolina. We have lost newspapers in Los Alamos and in Lincoln County and there have been layoffs in Doña Ana and Luna County.
