Finally, yesterday was a big award tonight for Hollywood - "Les Miserables" and "Argo" took home top movie prizes at the 70th annual Golden Globes. And there are a few speeches that people are still talking about.

Since her appointment to the Supreme Court in 2009, Sonia Sotomayor has stood out. The nation's first Latina justice is also its most extroverted; not only does she ask far more questions during oral arguments than her predecessor, David Souter, but she also has refused to indulge the court's pose of Olympian detachment. William Rehnquist never threw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium, and I don't remember Antonin Scalia making an appearance on Sesame Street.
Navajo leaders are scheduled to meet with energy experts to discuss alternatives to coal-heated homes.
The Farmington Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/RMUGOw) that the meeting during a day-long conference at Dine (dih-NAY') College Monday will feature presentations by professors and analysts from around the country.
New Mexico PBS has been asked to submit the unedited footage of interviews from a television program on the Bataan Death March to the Library of Congress.
Sen. Tom Udall and the Oasis Veterans History Project in New Mexico asked New Mexico PBS last week to submit the footage from "Bataan: A 70th Anniversary Commemoration" to the library's permanent collection.
New Mexico PBS produced the program with Bataan survivors. That program aired Memorial Day 2012 and featured interviews with survivors Pedro "Pete" Gonzalez and Bill Overmier.
City commissioners in Aztec approved a permit for the first new gas well planned this year within the city.
The Farmington Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/XvS07h) that drilling will begin in June on the nearly 7,000-foot deep gas well located amid an expanse of hills one half-mile southeast of downtown Aztec.
The city has seen the number of new wells dwindle in recent years.
The latest well is the only one slated for development within city limits in 2013.
The well is owned by ConocoPhillips and will be operated by Burlington Resources Oil and Gas Company.
The state Game and Fish Department has agreed to split the cost with the federal government to revamp a road to provide sportsmen with access to about 20,000 of public land in southwestern New Mexico.
The agency said a half-mile of Forest Road 886 will be rerouted around a mining claim in the Gila National Forest. The road was closed a decade ago by the owners of the mine claim, preventing people from using motor vehicles to gain access to public land for elk, deer and turkey hunting.
The revamped road is to be finished in time for the 2013-14 big game hunting season.
