and work. Part of that is because the featured artists use traditional crafts, and have mastered them to the point that it has transformed into a form of expression. The artists are Catalina DelgadoTrunk (papel picado), Damian Velasquez (furniture), Frederico Vigil (fresco), Drew Coduti and Kevin Burgess de Chávez (tinwork). All of the artists featured in the Vision 2013 Invitational are not unified by a statement of purpose, rather, they all have a similar thought process that goes into the creation of their art. One might say that they have a united vision. Ultimately, by pushing the boundaries of their craft to tell their own stories, and the stories of their communities, these artists are giving the world a glimpse at what the future of these crafts hold. For example, The "Half 13" series of furniture from Velasquez takes powder-coated, stainless steel furniture to a new level by adding a sculpural fabrication that is both colorful and useful. These design cues are things that one can easily envision being incorporated into future furni-

ture. Be it tin and metal work, paper, fresco or furniture, all of the artists are innovating with traditional crafts to create a forward thinking dialogue with the viewer. On Friday, February 8, from 5 - 7 p.m., the Roswell Museum and Art Center opens the exhibition which will continue through September 28. Two public programs related to this exhibition occur on Saturday, February 9. From 10 a.m. - noon, the Museum will hold its Second Saturday program for students in Third-12th grades. Delgado-Trunk will teach papel picado. This program is free and funded by the Roswell Museum and Art Center Foundation and the Roswell Women’s Club. At the time of this writing, enrollment for the progam was full. In the afternoon, from 2:30 - 4:30 p.m., Delgado-Trunk will teach papel picado to adult students. The cost for this two-hour workshop is $30 for members and $40 for non-members. To register, call 624-6744, extension 10.

The Vision 2013 Invitational

For 30 years the Roswell Museum and Art Center has invited regional artists to showcase our corner of the world’s art.


By Rey Berrones Vision Editor very medium that is represented in fine art has underpinnings in craft. Sometimes a craft yields only a tool or a functional object. However, there are times when a craftsperson starts creating objects that begin to draw emotional responses from observers. The forms and art that are created by these five great artists are aware of

the legacy of the past of their art and craft, while their present creations point toward the future of their medium. Each artist has used their art and creative process to tap into the traditions of their community in order to create an expression that reaches beyond the walls of a gallery or a studio, and penetrates into the fabric of the communities in which they live

Billy Shakespeare “Billy Shakespeare” will screen for the public for the first time at the Flickinger Center for The Performing Arts on Friday, February 8th, 2013 at 7 p.m. This will be an interactive experience for the audience. Feedback forms that include suggestions for modifying the film will give the viewers an opportunity to share opinions that may alter the version of the film that will be released for all audiences. Movie Synopsis: “Imagine that Lady Macbeth never seduced her husband into killing the king; Hamlet never lusted for his Mother, and Iago never deceived the Moor of Venice into murdering the innocent Desdemona. Suppose that William Shakespeare, the worldʼs greatest playwright, never existed until now. In modern times, Shakespeare peddles his screenplays in Hollywood. Renaissance and modern sensibilities clash and the combustion makes The Bard,as played by comedic genius Jason D. Johnson, the most controversial screenwriter in Hollywood.” This is a special screening and the first invites will go out to the cast, crew and their families. The screening will also be available to the Shakespeare and Movie lovers

Masters of Hawaiian Music/Chocolate Buffett The Masters of Hawaiian Music/Chocolate Buffett is at the Flickinger Center, located at 1110 New York Ave at 7:30 p.m. Come celebrate Valentines & our Chocolate Buffett with, Four-time Grammy-winner, master slack key guitarist George Kahumoku Jr., known as “Hawaiʻiʼs Renaissance Man”, is also a multiple Na Hoku Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) Award winner. He is also a vocalist, storyteller, songwriter & author, worldtraveling performer, as well as a high school and college teacher, artist and sculptor, farmer, and chef (traditional Hawaiian cuisine). George features the delightful experience of ki-hoʻalu (slack key guitar) – the distinctly Hawaiian style of open tunings. George will be joined by National Heritage Fellow Uncle Richard Hoʻopiʻi,

renowned for traditional Hawaiian falsetto singing and ʻukulele, and by son Keoki Kahumoku, both featured on the Grammy-winning CDs. One of the great traditions in Hawaiian Slack Key guitar—indeed in all Hawaiian culture— is the passing on of music and practices from one generation to the next. This concert offers you the rare opportunity to experience the warm bond of father and son, sharing a slack key genealogy even as each makes ki-hoʻalu (slack key) styling his own. Ticket prices vary.

ublai Khan is a four piece metalcore band based in north Texas. They originally formed in 2009 as a garage jam band. They would all get together and jam at home as a way to excape the stresses and turmoil of their life at home. According to band member Isaac Lamb, "Practice became like therapy sessions. And shows were the only time we had to escape real life. So we really put all we had into it and decided one day that we wanted to try and that this band as far as it can go. And we haven't looked back since." And so began the band. As can be expected from this sort of start, the music that they have since created is emotionally charged, aggressive, and does not shy away from tough issues. Many times, they directly address with their lyrics topics that other bands will not, and that has helped them build up a fan base that is also dealing with these issues. Lamb continued, "The response has been overwhelmingly positive. It can be scary to talk about things that are often tabooed. Or to bring attention to subjects that expose some pretty tender emotions. Many times in main-stream music it is often some of the simplest emotions that get over looked for what ever reason. The industry simplifies and doctors artists to maintain a mass appeal. The sad truth is a lot of society doesn't want to

hear what a bunch of kids have to say. So we speak to those who will listen. The core of our topics aren't brought up to be ‘edgy’ or harsh to boost a trendy selling point. Emotion is what it is. But honestly there is no greater feeling than when we are able to level with complete strangers solely based off the music we create and the words we say. Because that is community. And for some of these kids that's the closest thing to a family they have. So why not be honest with each other?" One of the topics that many bands don't address is oppression and racism, which Kublai Khan tackle head on. Lamb elaborated on this, "Well racism has always been a strong topic for us. It remains a strong topic in the nation and the world as a whole. We are proud to be an integrated band that stands against racism. But we address it in an attempt to unify people. Not so much to end it. “We also just want to relieve some our own pain. Which was the foundation behind the song Color Code. I honestly think you cant ever destroy racism, but you can open peoples eyes to it. I remember being a child, and being picked on because I was mixed. I didn't understand what I was doing so wrong to make people treat me like a lesser person. But with age I began to see the world and the people in it for what they were. They are scared. Just like me. Just like

The annual Baby Boomer Conference and Business Expo returns to the Roswell Convention Center


By Vanessa Kahin Vistas Editor

he annual event that has so many facets its organizer admits it has developed a “life of its own” is taking place in Roswell once again. Presented by Frontier Medical—a home health agency— the fourth annual Baby Boomer Conference & Business Expo is set to take place at the Roswell Convention Center, 912 N. Main St., on Saturday, Feb. 16, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. A true business expo that attracts vendors from various

Trained and credentialed staff. Personal attention. Se habla español.

parts of New Mexico, event coordinator and director of marketing for Frontier Medical Barbara Gomez said the event is free and for people of all ages. The allusion to the baby boomer generation— people born in the U.S. between 1946 and 1964—is simply the event’s theme. The nod to the generation that embraced the mantra “make peace, not war” and, with comfortable economic security helped propel the music of legends like Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin; adds a fun twist to the event that was always meant to be both educational and entertaining. There will be close to 80 booths at the expo that will include information, products and of course giveaways on a variety of items. Representatives from hotels, the Spencer Theater for the Performing Arts, the Billy the Kid Casino, restaurants, funeral homes, chiropractors and many more will be on-hand. There will be a variety of entertainment; including dances from the Studio + and the RAC-a-Taps; and music by

Vinnie Baggatone and the BaggaVaughns. Even Elvis will make an appearance. The Baby Boomer expo is such a fantastic affair that attendees vie for best-costume prizes by dressing up as such icons as Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and why not, home-grown Roswell aliens. “Everyone tries to outdo one another,” Gomez said with a hint of mischief . “There’s going to be all kinds of stuff.” This year’s Baby Boomer expo will include community notables such as attorney Tom Dunlap, who will give a presentation on legal issues. Richard Lucero of the Neighborhood Watch program and members of the Roswell Police Department will give a presentation on identifying scams and fraud. There will also be a presentation on all things Medicare. Perhaps one of the biggest highlights of the event will be a car giveaway. For just $10, an adult over the age of 18 will be entered into a drawing to win a brand new Toyota iQ. The car drawing is a result of Gomez’ partnership with SEE BOOMER ON PAGE 10

respect f or numbers, but their usefulness is hard for anyone to deny. One of the best kinds of mathematical information, when we can get it, is how much arc the obser ved object moved through in the sky during a given amount of time. Arc can be measured in degrees. (If you point at the horizon and rotate your arm until you are pointing straight up, you have descr ibed an arc of 90 degrees. A good thing to remember is that the angular size of the full moon is about half a degree.) One may roughly estimate arc against the sky the following way. Hold your hand out at arm's length with your fingers together and your

thumb tucked out of sight. T he inter val between the outer edge of your index finger and the outer edge of your little finger covers an angular span of about five degrees. (When it is more convenient you can position both your hands together to make a span of ten degrees.) So suppose a UFO sighting witness gives an account like this: "I saw the object move from there to there" (pointing out the object's positions) "in about f our seconds." And suppose we try measuring this span against the sky and see that by moving our hand from point to point we cover the observed arc in 11 hand-widths. That will mean that we now have an approximate angular

velocity, in that the object moved through about 55 degrees of arc in four seconds, or 13.75 degrees per second. Now, for reasons too esoteric to go into, it turns out to be convenient to change the 13.75 degrees into radian measure by multiplying it by pi/180 or 0.0174533, obtaining about 0.24 radians. The reason this is useful is that if we now multiply by the distance to the object, we get approximately the distance the object moved in the sky in one second. T he trouble with this, of course, is that we usually don't know how far away the object was. But we can at least get a relation between distance and speed. For

example, if we take our 0.24 radians and multiply by 5280 feet, we get 1267 feet, so that the air speed of the UFO was about 1267 feet per second for every mile away it was. If we want, we can change 1267 f eet per second to miles per hour, getting 864 mph if the object was a mile away. (If two miles away, 1728 mph.) Obviously all of this is approximate, because the hand-width method of estimating angles of arc is rather crude, and because witnesses may not be able to judge the elapsed time accurately. But even these rough estimates are helpful when we are tr ying to understand what the witness has seen.

The Lincoln County War

By Stu Pritchard Roswell Historian he killing of Brady and Hindman added further fuel to the fire and events would lead to increased killing as the Lincoln County War raged on. The fight at Blazer's Mill is considered a classic among gun battles in the Old West. After the six so-called Regulators had assassinated Sheriff Brady and Deputy Heinman in continued revenge for the killing of Tunstall, the group still thirsted for anyone else associated with Tunstall's death. Hearing that Andrew Roberts, known as Buckshot, was in the vicinity of Tularosa, the group used the excuse that Roberts held some of Tunstall's cattle to head there. The group paused at the Mescalero Indian Agency en route south. Roberts, unknowingly, rode up on his mule, was accosted by the group and refused to surrender. The salty old fel-

low was an ex-soldier with so many wounds received in fights with Indians, Texas Rangers and casual acquaintances that they called him Buckshot. A small man with one arm so crippled he could not lift a rifle to his shoulder, he was, nevertheless, willing to take on the fifteen men who challenged him. As the fight started, Charley Bowdrie got in a surprise shot that caught Buckshot in the stomach. The old fellow retained presence of mind enough to step inside the mill and drag a mattress across the doorway. In seconds he had shot off Bowdrie's belt, cut off George Coe's trigger finger with a shot, hit Middleton in the chest and grazed the arm of Billy the Kid. As Dick Brewer, leader of the crew, peered over a log, Roberts' deadly rifle shot caught him dead between the eyes. The loss of their leader

caused the remaining fourteen, bruised and bloodied to retire from the fray. Buckshot's stomach wound, from the first shot in the battle, proved fatal, even though he did receive medical aid from a Fort Stanton doctor. He and Brewer were buried together the next day, the hot weather making quick disposal of the bodies necessary. The Lincoln County War by midsummer of 1878 was a blazing, spreading cancer in the nation's largest county. The Englishman Tunstall was dead: many of his murderers were dead at the hands of the Regulators; Lincoln's Sheriff Brady and his deputy Heinman were dead-all of which led to the showdown. It started on July 14 when Alexander McSween and over 50 men swept into LincolnBilly the Kid was one of the men. With a three to one advantage over Sheriff Pep-

pin's forces and with warrants for the arrest of Peppin's men, McSween, nonetheless, took the defensive maneuver of barricading three downtown buildings. Meanwhile reinforcements for the sheriff drifted into town until McSween finally found himself outnumbered. Soon bullets, like angry bees, were passing between the chosen positions of the two sides. In the first two days of fighting only a horse and a mule died, but on the third day a deputy firing from high on the mountain was fatally wounded. Colonel Dudley of Ft. Stanton, on the pretense that one of his men had been fired upon, led his forces into town complete with a gatling gun and a howitzer. It meant disaster for McSween and his cohorts. Although Dudley and his troop took no part in this, the critical battle of the conflict, the McSween people found no way to fire toward their adversaries over the heads of the military. As the Lincoln County War reached its climax, the forces of Sheriff George "Dad" Peppin and lawyer Alex McSween

found themselves in a standoff across the streets of Lincoln Town. The intervention of Colonel Dudley and his troops from Ft. Stanton doomed the McSween forces, for during the night after Dudley's intervention, over forty of McSween8s forces deserted across to Rio Bonita leaving McSween, his wife and 14 men in the U shaped, two family home, where they were barricaded. Five days after the initial activity the soldiers brought. The prosperity helped the merchants in the improvement of their structures and helped Roswell grow into the recognized town center for the area. The little town of Roswell remained peaceful while the soldiers patrolled the roads and added their protection to the Berrendo settlement of Mexicans just northeast of town. But Captain Lea felt a need for more permanent recognizable law in the little community. He began to discuss a job as sheriff with a former buffalo hunter. His name was Pat Garrett.

Harlem Globetrotters

Kevin J. Keller Record Sports Editor ith the Coyote Den at near capacity, the worldrenowned Harlem Globetrotters dazzled thousands of fans on Feb. 4 with their unique blend of basketball and entertainment. It was the first time in more than a decade that the Globetrotters invaded the Alien City. The Magic Pass pre-show event gave hundreds of adults and children alike the chance to interact with members of the Globetrotters. Titan signed autographs and took pictures with fans, two other members of the team showed fans how to perform the trademark spinning-ball trick and two others played against fans. After the Magic Pass preshow, nearly 2,000 fans packed into the Coyote Den. NMMI athletic director Reggie Franklin was among them. Franklin played with the Globetrotters from 1979-81 and, on this night, served as an assistant coach for the team

under former Globetrotters legend Sweet Lou Dunbar. Before the game started, Globie, the team’s mascot, entertained fans with a game of musical chairs and a dance contest. Then the Globetrotters took the floor to a raucous ovation from the fans in attendance. Hi-Lite Bruton, the reigning “Clown Prince of Basketball,” welcomed and interacted with the crowd before tip-off. The game is always secondary at a Globetrotters event and this night was no different. Hi-Lite, with teammates Ant, Cheese, Hacksaw, Prince and Mighty (the 11th female member of the team in its more than 80-year history), spent most of the night badgering the referees, playing tricks on the Global Select team, and entertaining the fans with dance moves and jokes. KBIM’s Tom A. Ruiz, the celebrity member of the Global Select team, received one of the loudest ovations of

the night when he took the floor to begin the second quarter. Despite missing every shot he took during warm-ups, Ruiz smoothly drained his first shot, a 3-pointer, in the game. He knocked down another triple later in the quarter. Hi-Lite provided more comic fodder when Ruiz went to the free-throw line — he replaced the game ball with a helium-filled balloon, which floated into the rafters when Ruiz attempted to make his first free throw. After getting the game ball back, Ruiz made his second free throw and, shortly thereafter, checked out of the game with 14 points thanks to the “every shot is worth double” rule. By the end of the night, the Globetrotters had thoroughly entertained the fans, brought smiles to the faces of thousands and, to no one’s surprise, won the game by a 118108 count.
