    U.S. Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) issued the following statement on the passage of the compromise to prevent student loan interest rates from increasing to 6.8 percent on July 1: Preventing the interest rates on college loans from doubling next month was the right thing to do for working families and students. This compromise will save new under-graduate borrowers at New Mexico universities an average of almost $1,000 over the life of their loans. With an economy that hasnt fully recovered, college tuition on the rise and fewer jobs for graduates, it would have been unconscionable to make new borrowers pay more to get a higher education.

    Guadalupe Mountains National Park restricts smoking due to fire hazard

    As a precautionary measure, in light of recent and current fires throughout the Southwest, and continuing high tem-peratures, low relative humidity, very dry vegetation and high winds, the National Park Service announced that it is restricting smoking in the park.

    Effective immediately, smoking is only allowed inside vehicles or on hard, paved surfaces at least 30 feet from vegetation. Open flames, campfires or charcoal or wood barbecues are never allowed within the park.

    Superintendent Dennis A. Vsquez stated because of extreme fire danger, con-tinuous days of red flag conditions, reduced availability of fire fighting resources, and rapid rates of fire spread, we are taking this measure to ensure the safety of park visitors and staff, and to protect park resources and structures. Vsquez emphasized Gua-dalupe Mountains National Park remains open and we hope that visitors will con-

    tinue to recreate and enjoy the park. We are continuing to monitor conditions and will re-evaluate theses restrictions should condi-tions change and significantly decrease fire danger.

    Park information, including current conditions, restrictions or closures, may be found on the parks website ( and Facebook page (, or by contacting the Pine Springs Visitor Center at 915-828-3251 x2124. The Pine Springs Visitor Center is open daily (except Christmas) from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. (8 a.m. until 6 p.m. from Me-morial Day Weekend through Labor Day). Motorists traveling past the park along Texas Highway 62/180 may tune in to the parks Traveller Information System radio broadcast at 1560 AM for up-to-date park information.

    Residents advised to take extra precautions during extreme heat100 temperatures expected in several areas of New Mexico

    The New Mexico Department of Health is advising residents to take extra precautions to avoid heat-related illnesses such as heat exhaustion and heatstroke. Temperatures over the next several days are expected to top 100 degrees in many areas of the state. Children, the elderly and people with chronic health conditions are most at risk for developing heat related ill-nesses, but with the extreme tempera-tures we are expecting over the next few weeks anyone can be at risk, said Cabinet Secretary of Health, Catherine Torres, M.D. I advise all New Mexicans to take precautions to avoid the heat whenever possible, and to stay hydrated by drinking water. If you have to be in the heat, try to minimize strenuous activity that will cause your body temperature to rise. If you experience any symptoms of heat exhaustion or heatstroke, get out of the sun immediately and seek medical attention.

    The warning signs of heat exhaus-tion include heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, tiredness, weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea or vomit-ing and fainting. Dehydration and over exposure to the sun can cause heatstroke, a potentially life-threat-ening illness that causes the bodys normal mechanisms for dealing with heat stress such as sweating and temperature control, to shut down. The main sign of heatstroke is an elevated body temperature greater than 104 degrees and changes in mental status ranging from personal-ity changes to confusion. If you suspect heatstroke in someone, move the person out of the sun and into a shady or air-conditioned space, cool the person by covering him or her with damp sheets or by spraying with cool

    water, direct air onto the person with a fan or newspaper, have the person drink cool water if he or she is able and dial 911 immediately. The De-partment of Health also advises that people should never leave children or pets unattended inside vehicles. Parents should teach children not to play in vehicles and car keys and remote openers should never be left within reach of children. If you see a child alone in a car and you cannot find the parents or caregivers, and the doors are locked, call 911 immedi-ately to help get them out, Dr. Torres said. Pets can also suffer heat related illnesses. Leaving the widows cracked with a bowl of water will not be enough to cool your pet quickly when temperatures are extreme.

    To prevent heat-related illnesses the Department of Health recom-mends the following: Find a cool area in your area or in

    your home Drink plenty of water or other

    cool beverages; avoid sugary or carbonated drinks and drinks that contain alcohol

    Take a cool shower, bath or sponge bath with cool water

    Wear light, loose fitting clothing such as cotton

    Monitor your physical condition and that of your family for signs or symptoms of heat illness

    If possible, remain indoors during the hottest time of day

    Between 2006 and 2010, there were 14 heat-related deaths and 43 heat related hospitaliza-tions in New Mexico. More than half of the hospitalizations were adults 65 years of age and older.
