Explore Chaves County’s walking trails with the Prescription Trails guide.

alking—the simple exercise is linked to a long list of physical benefits, including the deflection of diabetes, easing the pain of fibromyalgia, increasing one’s likelihood of beating breast cancer and reducing the number of meds one takes. Furthermore, walking is an excellent calorie-burner that requires far less money than the average gym membership. Is it any wonder more doctors do not prescribe walking to their patients? With the Prescription Trails program, doctors can do just that. Local doctors and even veterinarians are already on board the newly created Chaves County Prescription Trails. With a Prescription Trails paper pad and swoosh of a pen, physicians are introducing the benefits of walking to their patients and encouraging them to do so. “It’s called Prescription Trails because it comes with an actual prescription,” said Tamara Fresquez, who is with the Healthy Kids Chaves County program. Fresquez and representa-

tives of the New Mexico Department of Health have been instrumental in getting physicians on board the program, including DOH Social and Community Service Coordinator Jimmy Masters. There is really no requirement to be part of the program—the actual prescriptions are meant to encourage. All one needs is to be motivated, and to have a good pair of walking shoes. “Everyone has a reason to walk,” Masters said, listing benefits such as losing weight, improved muscle tone, improved sleep, better moods, lowering the risk of heart disease and controlling blood pressure, to name a few. “The whole purpose of (Prescription Trails) is to encourage wellness,” he said. Whether walking on two legs or four, doctors and veterinarians are helping their patients reap the benefits of walking by actually prescribing it. Dogs themselves may be instrumental in getting their human companions moving. “Dogs are probably the first to say, SEE

The Pecos Valley Stampede

By Rey Berrones Vision Editor With February drawing to a close, many well-meaning resolution makers have started to return to their previous habits. One way to get back on track is to participate in the Roswell Runners Club events. The 32nd annual Pecos Valley Stampede is the first run of the season, and it is slated to happen on Feb. 23. As in years past, there will be several races for runners to participate in. The races include; ½ Marathon, 10K run/walk, 2-mile run and 2mile walk. This years Stampede is sponsored by SCOR, the Humphreys family, The Edwards Trust, Roswell Runners Club and the Roswell Parks and Recreation Depart-

Roswell Runners come out of hibernation for the first race of the season. ment. The run is being held to benefit the Altrusa Club, Breast Cancer Awareness programs and the New Mexico Youth ChalleNGe. “The proceeds will help benefit the Altrusa Club, breast cancer awareness programs,” said Bob Edwards, race director.

Continued from Page 3 ‘Hey, I want to get out and walk,’” Masters said. “(A dog) can be one of your best motivators.” It is recommended that adults complete 150 minutes of walking spread out throughout the week. On average, 30 minutes of activity each day could make for a noticeable improvement in one’s health. Of course, the more walking one does, the greater the health benefits. In the event that a patient may not know of the area’s bountiful and highly accessible walking areas, physicians involved with Prescription Trails have been equipped with colorful walking trails guides to share. The guides are booklets chockfull of information not only on some of the best walking trails in Chaves County, but also with brief snippets of history on each of these areas. The guidebook also includes a walking log, tips on walking and a list of safety considerations. Masters, along with members of the Girl Scouts of the Desert Southwest, Neighborhood Watch and the Roswell Parks and Recreation Department assessed the 16 walking trails listed in the guide. Assessing each trail involved adhering to strict guidelines, which included gathering information on how safe the area is, if the trail is handicap accessible, if it is dog-friendly, when it is open to the public and if it includes fine-packed gravel,

The Stampede is a great way for new runners to find running partners and support to help them stay true to their fitness goals. Novice to expert runners can participate, and if you’re not a runner there will also be a 2-mile walk and a 10K run/walk. The race is also a great way to help out the

community. “The proceeds are going to help out these organizations who have several projects under way,” said Bob Edwards, race director. Early registration closes on Feb. 21, with an entry fee of $20. Late registration and race-day registration fee will be $25. Race-day registration will be done between 7:158:15 a.m. the City Parks and Recreation office at 1101 W. Fourth Street. Race start and finish for the 1/2 marathon starts at 8 a.m. The 2-mile run, 10K run/walk, and 2-mile

walk will begin at 9 a.m. All races start and finish at the City Parks and Recreation office at 1101 W. Fourth St. All participants will receive a T-shirt and awards will be given for the top female and male finishers in each event. Medals will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers in each age division. All participants will be eligible for a post-race drawing for door prizes donated by Peppers and Pecos Flavors. For more information call Bob Edwards at 624-6720.

There was also an attempt to be creative when choosing trails, Masters said, which is part of the reason why South Park Cemetery made the walking trails list. Masters described the cemetery as quiet, unusual and with small avenues that would make one’s walk there interesting. “We tried to do something that is lots of fun, but also very unique,” Masters said of the choice in walking trails. He added that the list of walking trails in the guide does not mention all of the area’s trails; rather, he said, the list is a work in progress with possible additions to come. “As new trails come up, we hope to add more to the book,” Masters said. “Hopefully, there’s (a trail) right in your backyard.” Chaves County Prescription Trails will reach out to the community during the Pecos Valley Stampede at Cahoon Park on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 8 a.m. Organized by the Runners Club, the event will include a half marathon, a 10k run/walk, a two-mile run and a two-mile walk. Representatives with Prescription Trails will be on-hand not only to hand out water to participants, but also to get the word out on their blossoming walk initiative. Prescription Trails was founded in Albuquerque in 2008 by New Mexico Healthcare Takes on Diabetes. Santa Fe got its Prescription Trails program in 2009. The city of Las Cruces caught on soon

thereafter, creating its own Prescription Trails program through Healthy Kids Las Cruces in 2010. It was the local faction of the Department of Health and Healthy Kids Chaves County that brought Prescription Trails to Roswell. It is the first Prescription Trails program in southeast New Mexico. Masters said each city takes ownership of its Prescription Trails program, and gives it its own unique twist. The Chaves County Prescription Trails distinguishes itself from other programs by including historical information on each of its walking trails in the guidebook, its inclusion of walking trails throughout the entire county and separating its region into quadrants. Of the program itself, Fresquez mentioned that aside from the benefits of walking, there are the perks of getting fresh air and becoming acquainted with one’s own community. “We’ve got a lot of wonderful parks and trails in Chaves County,” Fresquez said. “People should get out and enjoy them.” To get a .PDF copy of the Chaves County Prescription Trails guidebook, visit ro s we l l - n m . gov / s t a t i c p a ge s / i n d ex . p h p / pd1_prescriptiontrails or http://prescr iptiontrails.org/2012 prescriptiontrailChavez.pdf.

Monty Pythons Spamalot Winner of the 2005 “Best Musical” Tony Award, “Spamalot” is an outrageously fun musical by Eric Idle and John Du Prez lovingly ripped-off from the classic film comedy “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” Loosely telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table, and featuring a bevy of beautiful show girls, cows, killer rabbits and French people, Monty Pythonʼs “Spamalot” “raises silliness to an art form” (The Sunday Times) and has been hailed as “a noholds-barred smash hit” (The New Yorker). The national touring production by Troika Entertainment (Cats, Jesus Christ Super Star) features a cast of 30 singers, dancers and orchestra musicians singing a knee-slapping array of silly songs like He Is Not Dead Yet, The Song That Goes Like This and Always Look on the Bright Side of Life as the motley crew of knights defend their honor, fall in love and gallop through the countryside in searchof the Holy Grail. The performance starts at 7 p.m., with a pot roast buffet before the show at 5 p.m. Tickets for the performance are $76 and $79. Pre-show buffet tickets are $20.

Artist-inoswell Residence Ryder Richards examines the relationship violence and beauty have in popular culture with his exhibition, “Conflicted,” which opens Feb. 22 and runs through April 7 at the Roswell Museum and Art Center (RMAC). The show features drawn and constructed pieces inspired by two works of sculptor Giambologna that depict violent episodes in Greek mythology and Roman history. “Hercules Fighting the Centaur Nessus” portrays Hercules as he is about to kill Nessus, and “The Rape of the Sabine Women,” shows a young man holding a woman aloft as an older man looks on in dismay. Though not a native of Italy, Giambologna’s works were used to glorify the country, Richards said, and they are still featured in the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence. In that way, Richards said he considers one aspect of the sculptures to be propaganda art, as they were “used for political and public edification of the state.” Similar relationships between warriors and artists have been made throughout history, he said. “[An artist] can make a warrior immortal,” he said. “But

you have this very cleaned up image of what happened and it becomes iconic. “The West thrives on these larger than life icons founded on violence.” Richards, 35, is particularly fascinated by “the beautification of violence.” “That beauty allows us to overlook the violence and be seduced by it,” he said. “It’s as though we want the violence; we’re taught it’s bad, but we react strongly to it. There’s something we respond to.” The show’s title not only refers to the visual conflict of the victims and aggressors and the contradiction of “beautiful" violence, but also to how Richards feels about beautifying violence himself. “It brings up the debate that if you keep making work about violence, are you perpetuating violence?” he said. “In a weird way, this is about the facades that we see and don’t think about—how images act upon us and we socialize violence and make it a part of the norm.” Richards uses images of the sculptures to explore how violence and beauty intersect in Southwestern culture. One way he does this is to make the images flat and hold them up on structures, bringing to mind familiar images of the region, such as billboards, SEE

A groundbreaking ceramics artist brings a workshop to the Roswell Museum and Art Center.

By Rey Berrones Vision Editor

risten Kieffer is about to let lucky people take a look inside her ceramic process that is expanding the artform by drawing from other disciplines. Kieffer, who is one of the demonstrating artists at the 47th National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts in late march, will be demonstrating her processes at the Roswell Museum and Art Center (RMAC) Ceramics Studio during a two-day workshop on March 2 and 3. Kieffer is a full-time studio potter, workshop leader and ceramics instructor that works from her home studio in Massachusetts. While her art has been recognized nationally, her integration of other craft methods and influences has taken her art to the next level. The most notable is the idea of approaching ceramic forms

in the same way that a seamstress would for her corset vessels. In them, she has created three-dimensional forms that started as traditional thrown clay, but have been altered to create beautiful pieces that sometimes look like Victorian couture clothing. The clay has been altered in much the same way that a tailor would use darts to make clothing hug and enhance the form of the wearer. Meanwhile, intricate lace patterns and monochrome colors are used to enhance the shape instead of dominating the form. The concepts that have been practiced for centuries by tailors is found applied to clay forms, and the result is hard ceramic forms that emit a soft feel with delicate details in a hard and useable ceramic piece. In much the

same way that the corset and other tailored clothes define form and create elegant and artful silhouettes, Keiffer's patterns and alterations give the clay strong and flowing lines. These explorations aren't limited to creating pots that emote delicate hourglass figures, but also move on to tiles that look like fine upholstry. The tiles have taken a shape that is reminicent of a pillow, and because they are formed with the same design aesthetic, they look soft. It is almost as if they would be a comfortable place to rest, but ultimately are still hard, fired clay. Kieffer's two-day workshop will explore her form altering techniques and go into various methods of embellishment, including stamping, SEE

blum movie "The Fly" (or its black-and-white predecessor) has had reason to think about the notion that an object might be relocated from point A to point B instantly, without traversing the space in between. But on the face of it, the idea seems almost ludicrous. However, for some years now we have been conducting experiments actually attempting the feat of teleportation, and not altogether without success, at least at the particle level. In 1998 a photon was teleported a distance of one meter. True, it was only a light particle, and the distance was short, but this was a promising start. Later, in fact, the same team of physicists improved the distance up to

600 meters. In these pioneering experiments they used a quantum technique called particle entanglement, which seems to be the key to the whole thing. It takes considerable ingenuity. Keep in mind that the photon didn't just cross the intervening space quickly. It didn't cross it at all! The particle simply rematerialized in the new position. Other such experiments followed. A scientific team at Australian National University teleported a laser beam in 2002. In 2011 another team at the University of Tokyo succeeded in teleporting packets of quantum information. In May 2012 a team of scientists reported having teleported wave packets of light a distance of 143 kilometers between two of the Canary

Islands. Certainly this is a long way short of teleporting a laboratory mouse, say, even across the room. The equipment it takes just to teleport a light particle a short distance is outlandish, and in terms of particle entanglement the problem of teleporting even a water molecule will be immensely more complex. The problem of teleporting a single human cell will be almost unimaginably more complex still, and some physicists think it's impossible to teleport large objects. But throughout history we've been told that things were impossible, and usually this turns out not to be the case. Let's face it, we humans always think, at any point in time, that we have arrived at

the pinnacle of all possible knowledge and understanding. We smile indulgently at our well-intentioned but clueless ancestors. So is it beyond imagining that future generations might regard us as barbarians too? It would be naive in the extreme for us to think that at present we know all we're ever going to know about the principles of physics. Total UFO skeptics often say that the distances UFOs would need to traverse would be excessive even at near-light speeds, requiring many thousands of years of travel. But if macro-level teleportation is possible, then UFOs could have come from virtually anywhere. After all, their technology may be much older than ours. And they did get here somehow. We've seen them.

HISTORY

O

Billy the Kid

Part one of a series on Billy the Kid that continues the history of the Lincoln County war.

By Stu Pritchard Roswell Historian ne of the most enduring legends in the American West is Billy the Kid. Hardly a month goes by without a magazine article, movie, book or TV tale about the Kid. But there is considerable doubt about most of his early history. Early historians said he was bor n in Brooklyn or at least in the New York City area. Probably he was born in Missouri, because this is what he reported to the census taker. No one knows why he called himself William Bonney - he was bor n Henry McCarty. Billy's parents were Catherine and Michael McCarty. The father died during the period of the Civil >> 9 Live From Las Vegas The Ultimate Ladies Night Out at Tequilaʼs Nightclub, located at 6514 Old Dexter Hwy in Roswell at 8 p.m. Admission is $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Roswell Artist-in-Residence Lecture and Reception: Ryder Richards Roswell Artist-in-Residence Lecture and Reception: Ryder Richards, Friday, February 22nd, at 5:30 p.m., at the Roswell Museum and Art Center, located at 100 W. 11th St. Ryder Richards will be creating an architectural installation featuring several sculptures and gunpowder drawings. The exhibit draws inspiration from the West, reflecting on romance of violence as a cultural

War, probably of non-war causes. His widow later married a part-time bartender, farmer and carpenter named William Antrim in Santa Fe. The pair, with the two McCarty boys Joe and Henry, moved to Silver City, New Mexico, to favor Mrs. Antrim's tuberculosis. Henry did well in school, including displaying a small talent for singing and dancing. He once performed as "end man" in a minstrel show. His mother died in 1874, when he was 14, nearly 3 years before his first killing. Brother Joe never amounted to much. He drifted about the West, dying in Denver in 1930 at 76 years of age. Henry, soon to be dubbed "Billy the

Kid" because of his boyish appearance, lived only a few years but his exploits became legend. It is said he lived 21 years and killed 21 men. Neither is true. An educated guess would tally approximately 7 men who died at his hand. Several of the killings were in conjunction with others who were firing at the same time, as in the case of Sheriff Brady. He was a small youth about 5'9," weighed about 150 pounds, with small hands and feet, fair complexion, blue eyes and slightly protruded front teeth. He was righthanded in spite of the reversal negative which gave rise to speculation that he was

left-handed. Billy the Kid - a western legend. The facts depict Billy as a sincere, often cheerful young, man slight of build; a handsome child though not a particularly handsome young man, certainly not so doltish as his famous photo would seem to indicate. He was above average in intelligence, was relatively articulate and penned a scholarly letter as one can see if he scans his letters on view in Lincoln Town's museum. No one doubts Billy's leadership capabilities; he exercised them too effectively, too many times. And his courage was paramount. None ever doubted his personal courage.

Illustration by Gunnor Petersen Obvious from his success with the Spanish senoritas and other young ladies in the area, Billy the Kid spoke fluent, effective Spanish and his way with the ladies identified Billy as the probable father of two daughters and a son. Neither a moron nor a particularly clever man; neither a homicidal maniac nor a nice lovable boy, Billy the Kid was unusual in many ways.

The theme of violence is not only apparent in most of the pieces—Richards uses the decorative breach of a Winchester rifle as a motif— but also in the actual creation of them. While drawing images of Southwestern iconography using powdered graphite, he decided to incorporate a product strongly associated with the Southwest: gunpowder, which is burned onto the paper’s surface.

menting with the technique for three years and said while it can be unpredictable, “it works out pretty well.” However, he said controlling gunpowder is very much like controlling a gun. “It mimics a lot of things that I was around when I was growing up, so it made sense to use it,” he said. Richards, who grew up in Roswell, said he started going hunting with his father at a young age. He said though it’s been a while since he’s hunted, “the ideas it taught me still show up in my head quite often.”

He said his acceptance into the RAiR program has been “a really pleasant homecoming.” “It’s nice to actually come back here and reinvigorate my past memories and be able to reflect on those after a while,” he said. “I feel comfortable being here and that helps when I’m making art.” To preview pieces of “Conflicted,” visit Richards’ blog, ryderroswell.com.
