California's limping manufacturing sector took another hit Thursday as Santa Clara-based computer chip vendor Intel Corp. announced that it would build a $1-billion factory outside Albuquerque, N.M. California officials had tried to persuade Intel to build the plant in Folsom, near Sacramento, and the company had entertained offers from four other states and several foreign countries.

There weren't many people wanting to lick a buffalo chip until a couple of ski bums named Jamie Leeson and Todd Fortune came along. Now the two young entrepreneurs have fans across the entire West yearning for a taste of their Buffalo Chip gourmet ice cream. "It's definitely good stuff. I eat about three cones a day myself," said Fortune, a gangly Generation Xer.

A year ago, this scrubby suburb of Albuquerque crowed when it beat out rivals in California and elsewhere as the site of Intel Corp.'s latest billion-dollar computer chip plant. Enticed by the promise of high-wage jobs, the town's economic development team ponied up big tax breaks and other incentives. Intel loudly praised New Mexico's business climate, so much friendlier than its home state's high costs and onerous regulations.

Gallant Solutions, a Camarillo-based provider of technical staffing and executive search services as well as environmental consulting, has opened a branch office in Albuquerque, N.M. The new unit will concentrate on serving New Mexico's energy and defense industries, said Bill Barbee, Gallant's executive vice president. "Several of our consulting clients in Ventura County have interests in New Mexico, so it seemed natural to expand our efforts in that state," Barbee said.

An Irvine brokerage has agreed to stop doing business in New Mexico to settle a complaint with that state's securities division, but the company still faces at least two lawsuits brought by local governments there that allege they were defrauded. New Mexico's securities division announced Monday that Liberty Capital Markets said it would withdraw its securities license and had agreed not to conduct any securities business in the state for the next five years.

Franco Fernandez's comments about California's supposedly anti-business environment (letter, Aug. 27) spur me to ask how many states he does business in. Over the last five years my company has done business in New Mexico, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Michigan, Tennessee, Colorado, Texas and, of course, California. I have always found your state's employees to be helpful and hard-working and the required forms fairly simple and straightforward. Perhaps Fernandez should listen to less Republican propaganda and do more direct research himself before criticizing his state.

A long-standing artist community and celebrity vacation destination, Santa Fe, N.M., has a new rising star: a sprawling studio complex that could help the state regain its footing as a leading production destination for Hollywood filmmakers. Santa Fe Studios, a nearly $30-million, 65-acre production facility in the southeast part of the more-than-a-mile-high town, will open for business this week. The pueblo-style studio includes two 19,274-square-foot soundstages with plush offices and dressing rooms, access to electric cars and ultra-high-speed broadband technology.

Bill Richardson's close friends and advisors worked as a consultant for the Beverly Hills firm at the center of a federal "pay-to-play" inquiry that derailed the governor's appointment as Commerce secretary.
