GRANTS, N.M. (AP) — The Latest on New Mexico wildfires (all times local): Crews continue to mop up and patrol two nearby wildfires now largely contained on a butte and a mountain in northwestern New Mexico. Nearly 300 firefighters and other personnel were still assigned to the fires Saturday but the top-tier management team assigned to both fires planned Sunday to turn over the reins to a lower-tier management team. The two fires have burned a total of 20 square miles of grass and timber as of Saturday, with one reported at 91 percent of containment and the other at 54 percent.

GALLUP, N.M. (AP) — The Navajo Nation has given approval to help fund a veterans facility in New Mexico that will prevent patients from having to travel far for care. Navajo Nation council members voted 19-0 this week to give $2.4 million toward the construction of a service center for veterans in the community of Thoreau. The center, which will be about 33 miles (53 kilometers) east of Gallup, will offer physical therapy as well as medical services.

FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) — Officials in northwestern New Mexico are teaming up as part of an effort to diversify the economy in a region that has been dependent for years on the oil and gas industry.

The initiative plans to highlight the area's opportunities for fly fishing, mountain biking, hiking and rock crawling as well as locations such as the Bisti Wilderness and Lake Farmington.

President Donald Trump will welcome French President Emmanuel Macron to the United States for an official state visit on Monday, in the latest sign of good will between the two leaders.

The two got off to a rocky start after sharing a tense handshake at their first meeting at a NATO summit in Brussels last May. But since that shaky beginning, Trump and Macron have developed a surprisingly collegial bond.

Amazon has been one of President Trump's favorite targets on Twitter.

He's accused the company of not collecting taxes (which it does), charged it with putting retailers out of business — and focused his attacks on the tech company's relationship with the Post Office.

So, the President might be surprised to learn that one of Amazon's biggest customers is, in fact, the federal government. Amazon's relationship with the government goes well beyond delivering packages — to playing a vital role in protecting America's national-security secrets.

As more states legalize marijuana, there's growing interest in a cannabis extract — cannabidiol, also known as CBD.

It's marketed as a compound that can help relieve anxiety — and, perhaps, help ease aches and pains, too.

Part of the appeal, at least for people who don't want to get high, is that CBD doesn't have the same mind-altering effects as marijuana, since it does not contain THC, the psychoactive component of the plant.
