Weary of conspiracy theories, Hollywood embellishments and public suspicion that for 50 years the Pentagon has covered up discovery of a crashed UFO near Roswell, N.M., the Air Force on Thursday released what it touted as a definitive, conclusive, this-time-we-mean-it, fini report denying the incident.

Doctors are optimistic about the two students wounded in this week's shooting at a Roswell middle school, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez said Thursday. She traveled Wednesday night to the Lubbock, Texas, medical center where the children are being treated, her spokesman said. Martinez told reporters Thursday that the injured boy, Nathaniel Tavarez, 12, remained in critical condition. One of the pellets from the shotgun blast that hit the students nicked Nathaniel's heart, she said.

Tourists and true believers turned out in the hundreds Friday for a service at a remote desert ranch to remember what some say was a UFO crash hushed up by the military 50 years ago. Some UFO buffs say the crash took place on what is now the Corn Ranch, where a plaque unveiled Friday said: "We don't know who they were; we don't know why they came; we only know they changed our view of the universe." Ranch owner Miller "Hub" Corn said he wasn't certain about the so-called Roswell incident.

ROSWELL, N.M. - Within an hour after a 12-year-old boy opened fire with a shotgun inside his middle school gymnasium here Tuesday, gravely wounding two students, hundreds of parents waited at a nearby mall to collect their stunned children, some of whom had witnessed the attack. Outside an entrance to the Roswell Mall, between the La Salsa restaurant and the Hobby Lobby, a crowd with anguished faces parted to allow the town's teary sons and daughters to pass. The Berrendo Middle School students walked gingerly past a clutch of sympathizers.

New Mexico authorities have heard all the horror stories about unhealthy food additives, but they admit they've never seen anything as bizarre as this. A worker unwrapping a case of frozen meat at an Albertsons grocery store in the town of Roswell this week discovered a handgun and ammunition packed alongside a slab of ribs. "We've been baffled by this one," Roswell police spokeswoman Sabrina Morales told the Los Angeles Times. "We still are. " There are clues to the mystery: The semiautomatic Rock Island Armory .38 Super along with seven rounds of ammunition originated from a Swift packing plant in Greeley, Colo., and the date on the package is June 8, 2011.

When you're making a film about extraterrestrials visiting Earth, rule No. 1 is not to deny their existence--or the vehicles they arrived in. So Kyle MacLachlan, starring in "Roswell," Showtime's drama about a possible UFO crash in 1947, is careful not to disrespect anyone's faith: "I personally have never seen a flying saucer," he says gravely. "There are people who have seen something. Obviously, something has moved them."

This conservative city on the barren eastern plains of New Mexico long had been spared the acrimonious debates over illegal immigration that have racked so much of the Southwest. That is, until December, when immigration enforcement entered the murky terrain of the local high school. A school security officer stopped Karina Acosta, an 18-year-old pregnant Roswell High School senior, and discovered she was in the country illegally.

If you believe the government, 65 years ago today a UFO totally didn't crash at Roswell, N.M., and spawn a massive cover-up, because aliens totally aren't real. Maybe not. But a tantalizing controversy dates from way back then. On July 8, 1947,  the Dallas field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation sent a teletype message saying that the Air Force had recovered “an object purporting to be a flying disc ... near Roswell, N.M. The disc is hexagonal in shape and was suspended from a ballon [sic]

On the outskirts of town, a couple of miles away from the UFO souvenir shops and the street lights decorated with alien eyes, the cowboy and the veterinarian got together a few weeks ago to discuss their options. They had a plan for Mine That Bird, and that plan didn't involve the Kentucky Derby or the Preakness Stakes. But they got to talking about the Triple Crown series, the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to race at Churchill Downs, and their minds started racing.

This city sits on the sunbaked southeastern plains of New Mexico like a ship afloat in an ocean of grass. At the edge of town, gently undulating ridges stretch to a horizon unrelieved by any distinguishing feature, save the distant blue silhouette of the Capitan Mountains. As Mayor Tom Jennings says, "We're out here 200 miles from anywhere."
