The annual Guerreros Toy Run

Every year, the community comes together to ensure that all children in the community have a great holiday.
By Amy Vogelsang Record Staff Writer ow that November is here, it’s only a matter of time before Christmas is knocking on your chimney. I know, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, so who has time to think about Christmas already? Well, despite their busy schedules, the Guerreros Riders have gotten started early on their holiday planning. For them, Christmas isn’t just about bringing joy to their own families, but about making it a special holiday for hundreds of children throughout Roswell. A few years ago the motorcycle club decided that they wanted to help collect toys for children. CASA opened their doors to the club, and so the partnership was formed. And for the fifth year now, they will once again help the community by having their annual
Toy Run. “Every year gets better and better,” explained club President Jorge “Gallo” Armendariz. It’s about “getting all of the community involved for a good cause.” These guys may look intimidating and tough in their leather vests, biker bandanas and motorcycle shades, but they are actually all softies. “We’re trying to ride and have fun and are family oriented,” Armendariz said, explaining why the club was started. “We try to help the community and help ourselves as a brotherhood.” After collecting donated toys throughout the month of November, the riders of the club, as well as any other bikers who want to join, parade down Main Street. They each strap a toy to their bikes, and leading the way is none other
than Santa Clause himself on a bike made to look like a sleigh. Last year that had somewhere around $70,000 in donated toys – enough to fill four large vehicles – and roughly 350 bikers who rode down Main Street. Even those who don’t ride are encouraged to come out and watch, Armendariz said. There are stopping points along the way where kids will have a chance to get a photo with Santa, and with so many bikes and toys it really looks like a parade. It’s a fun event, but it is also very special to these men and women. They never forget that their objective is to help the kids of CASA. And the significance of even the simplest gift is huge, said CASA’s Courthouse Dog Handler, Natasha Sing, as she led
around CASA’s veteran dog, Emma. “We get to actually see the kids pick things out,” Sing explained.“Something simple like a doll or a football, and these kids are on Cloud 9.” Seeing how excited kids get with presents is something
every adult has enjoyed watching, and for CASA Access and Visitation Coordinator, Amanda Lueras, it is no different. Also the handler for CASA’s newsest dog, Moose, Lueras sees a lot of the kids SEE

CASAʼs Winter Wonderland
By Amy Vogelsang Record Staff Writer t feels like autumn has barely begun, but already some are preparing for winter: the crisp winds, the possibility if snow and, of course, Christmas. Even though it is only November, First American Bank has been transformed into a festive museum of trees and wreaths in preparation for CASA’s annual Winter Wonderland event. Every year, CASA holds an auction to help raise money for their program. This year’s auction will once again have many unique decorations and trees up for grabs, all generously donated by companies and individuals within the Roswell Community.
The annual CASA event turns First American Bank into a Winter Wonderland

From one cor ner some pheasants “hide” in a tree while a hunting dog sits and waits. Along a hallway wall Tigger peeks out cheerily from the evergreen branches while yet another tree has hot wheels racing on a track through its boughs. From classic angels and holly to specific interests in a theme, there are trees for every type of holiday enthusiast. Sponsored by First American Bank, Xcel Energy and Lovelace, Winter Wonderland typically has about 50 trees to auction off, and as of Friday already had about 35 set up. People are encouraged to not only bringing their own tree

donations over the next couple weeks, but to also go to First American and check out the decorations. “The best part of the event is when the community comes together the night of the auction, and seeing how generous people are,” said CASA Board Member Cindy Ragsdale. She was overwhelmed with the generosity of the community Friday as CASA staff , First American Bank employees and other volunteers worked all day to set up the decorations. They even had a random lady – a stranger – walk in to help out, Ragsdale said. This only added to her gratitude SEE WONDER ON PAGE 14

ince they formed in the mid 90s, Audio Adrenaline has sold over three million records, has garnered two Grammy Awards and multiple Dove Awards. The band has achieved 17 No. 1 singles, was awarded CCM Song of the Decade for “Big House” and their 1996 album Bloom received RIAA Gold certification. In 2004, members of Audio Adrenaline form the Hands & Feet Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing long-term, familystyle care for orphaned and abandoned children of the world to help them reach their god-given design. Inspired by fan reaction to the band’s song “Hands and Feet,” the Hands & Feet Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing long-term, family-style care for orphaned and abandoned children in need of a home and family. The organization broke ground on their first Children’s Village in Cyvadier (Jacmel), a small town on the Southern coast of Haiti, and began their journey of serving the forgotten children of the impoverished Caribbean nation. Everything changed, and according to bassist Will McGinniss, "We came off the road in 2007 because our old singer had a vocal disorder,
and could not sing anymore. We pretty much moved on, and thought that our band was done. We had a good, long career, so we thought 'who could ask for anything more.'" Many in the band were involved with the Hands and Feet Project at the time, and they transitioned to making that project a full time focus. McGinniss continued, "While the band went away, we were still pouring our time into that work. We were keeping it up and going, and keeping it in front of people." Eventually, things started coming together to bring back the band. According to McGinniss, "About two years ago, the talks started about maybe getting Audio Adrenaline back out there. People missed Audio Adrenaline, the brand was still really solid. The f ans still loved what Audio Adrenaline was about. That is when we started talking about getting it back together. The main goal was to have a platform to share the story about the Hands and Feet Project in Haiti, and still champion the cause of that non-profit for the orphans down there. We have a hundred kids down there today that we are taking care of in a few locations. "That was the driving force for getting the band back

Audio Adrenaline brings their Kings and Queens tour through Roswell Especially considering that we are connected with the Hands and Feet Project on a deep level, and it is built into our label structure. Net proceeds from every record sold go back to building orphanages in Haiti, and so I think the response is that most people want us to win, and want us to do well for the sake of the orphan care. Beyond that, they really like the idea of us coming back and making new music, and putting on our live show, that was revered as
a great rock show. We are still pulling off a lot of that. "I think we still have the same heart. We still want to create great art. We still want to create great music, and we want our live show to be amazing. People are connected with it again, and it is resonating with them.

Same Time Next Year
Rey Berrones Photos
Come have an affair with the Roswell Community Little Theatre! he year is 1951. They meet in secret because society would frown upon them if it knew the truth. And they know this, but don’t care. For just one night every year they push societal expectations and norms aside to enjoy the forbidden company of each other. It’s the “Same Time Next Year,” Roswell Little Theatre’s next production, and although it will be filled with surprises and drama, it is first and foremost a comedy: “No bodies
get boiled,” said Curtis Folts, director and “Costume Master” (or according to his assistant director, “Costume Mistress.”) Written by Bernard Slade – for trivia buffs that is the same man who wrote “Fatal Attraction” – “Same Time Next Year” is a story about a man and a woman, George and Doris, but adds a twist to the classic “boy-girl” romance. These two meet each other on the same night, every year, for 25 years, for an anniversary.
The catch: they are each married to another What starts as a love affair – a one-night stand – turns into a loving relationship that only exists one night out of the year. It takes a taboo subject, and really looks at it in a new light, Folts explained. “It doesn’t celebrate (the taboo), but it acknowledges that one is there,” he said. “It takes an uncomfortable subject and allows for the potenSEE SAME TIME ON PAGE 14

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
The Potters Guild Art Sale
By Rey Berrones Vision Editor he Holiday shopping season in the Pecos Valley kicks off the the yearly Pecos Valley Potters Guild Art Sale. Starting on November 8, area artisans come together in the Roswell Civic Center for a weekend where people in the area can start purchasing one-of-akind jewelry, paintings, ceramics, fiberglass, woodwork and mixed media items. For more than 30 years, this show has brought together many area artists in an art sale that is the perfect place to find unique holiday gifts. Each of the artists has been preparing for months to design and create enough art to fill and entire booth. According to Jessica Kirk, show coordinator, although the studios of participating artists are extremely busy, the show is coming together smoothly. The kilns all around the Pecos Valley are burning
Rey Berrones Photos
The gift-giving season begins in the Pecos Valley with the Potters Guild Art Sale constantly, and "this year is a really full show, with high quality art." She continued, "All the artists are hard at work putting the finishing touches on their art and booths. Everyone is really excited for the show." According to Kirk, there are more than 50 artists that will have their work on sale, and although the show is put on by the Potters Guild, ceramicists only represent a third of the artists that are showing. Jewelers, painters, and other media are all well represented in the show. The artists come from New Mexico and Texas, and have their original art, for sale directly. Artists must apply to be a part of the show, as it is a juried show, and emphasis is place on unique and original work. The average booth has anywhere from 75 - 85 different pieces, and for some
artists, this is the only time during the year that they put together a body of work to put on sale. For some, it feels like the main hall of the Roswell Convention and Civic Center is turned into rows of gallery showings for many artists. Friday night's opening celebration kicks off the weekend with live music by local Latin Jazz group Ritmo Latino and free munchies catered by Tinnie Mercantile & Deli. There will be a silent auction featuring several handmade pieces. The Potters' Guild will be donating proceeds from this year's silent auction toward the completion of the “Remembering Roswell” Community Centennial Project planned for Roswell's Resichman Park. Members of the public are also encouraged to “make
their mark” at a hands-on activity booth sponsored by the Roswell Interarts Organization, creating unique handmade tile to be installed with the “Remembering Roswell” project. The Pecos Valley Potters Guild operates out of the ceramic studio at the Roswell Museum and Art Center, and features Aria Finch, Georgene Smyth, and Anna Edwards as instructors. However, other guild members are frequently involved and the classes and workshops are frequently filled. The adult classes last for 8 weeks, and are $90 for members and $115 for nonmembers. The children's classes last for 6 weeks, and are $45 for members and $55 for non-members. Each student must purchase their own clay. SEE

Because of Finch's teaching attitude of encouraging students to take chances, and to embrace their failures as teaching moments, many of the students grow in ways that aren't found in other art programs. It was conceived as a program that has not limits, where everyone can invent freely, and grow their own personal vision. Guild member, Megan Heil, stated that the ceramics class is a great way to learn something new, make new friends, and even get involved with
the Potters Guild. They are also taught the business of art through the Potters Guild. For many, the transition from doing art as a hobby to becoming a professional artist is a difficult and soul searching process. Members of the guild often provide mentoring and guidance to students and aspiring artists. As a result, many of the students of the program go on to become artists showing at the art sale. This is the show's 32nd year, and is a great annual tradition of transfering art from artists into the hands, and some-

winning them over one-byone. They see our heart, and see what we are about, and they are getting behind it. The new line-up has made them approach the new record as a brand new project that has deep roots. McGinniss elaborated, "We basically took this record on as a bridge record that would carry the old into the new season. It is a little bit safe. We drew on a lot of the influences that we would have
drawn upon when we were making the old Audio Adrenaline records. Our old lead singer, Mark Stuart is actually still involved. He is involved with the Hands and Feet Project, and he is a principle writer on a lot of the new material. "There was a lot that we did to protect the brand, and protecting the sound, and protecting how this thing got launched. I think people are receiving it super well because of that.

also has songs that are forging ahead, which receiving was always about. We never made the same record twice, we always ventured out musically and sonically. Lyrically and thematically, we always wanted to be current and challenge people. I think that we hit all of those bars that we set for ourselves." The current tour is promoting the "Kings and Queens" album, and the band has plans on releasing a followup next year. McGinniss elaborated, "The band is more of a cohesive unit and we have
our own voice now and I think that people will appreciate that we are not resting on our laurels of the old, but pressing forward and creating new interesting art with this lineup. "For me, the second record is a lot more critical than the first. People were giving us a lot of grace on the first because they were excited to have us back. Now we have to prove ourselves by delivering an amazing sophmore record with the new line-up. "Mark will continue to be involved, and oversee and
write the next record, and it is nice to have him to bounce stuff off of, and critique and inspire the new material."

Charles Goodnight's plans to head for New Mexico were delayed for over a year from inception, but in 1866, on the 6th day of june, he, Oliver Loving, one-armed Bill Wilson, and a crew of trailherders left the frontier of Texas to blaze a new trail for long-horned cattle. The thousands of flinty hooves that turned the grass of the Llano Estacado to dust traced his name across the most famous trail in the West. Oliver Loving, 54 years of age, mature in years and sturdy as a live oak, took charge of the drive and the cattle headed west. At first they followed the trace of the old Butterfield Stage.

But this challenge to see an affair in a positive way is something that Folts said makes for great work, or as he puts it, art. “The purpose of art is to get people thinking and to feel things they wouldn’t normally feel,” he explained. Art is meant to make people grow, and this one definitely chal-

Far in the lead scouted the observant Goodnight, exploring for water holes, range and suitable bed grounds. Turning south near present day Abilene' they followed a course westward into the staked plains. Never knowing they were blazing a trail to be followed by countless thousands of cattle - pressing steadily westward, the hardy group continued ... across the middle Concho, Centralia Draw, along the ruts of the Butterfield Stages of six years previous, to Horsehead Crossing on the Pecos. As the great herd approached Horsehead Crossing on the sinuous Pecos, the trail herders found a turbid, red, alkaline, bitter flood of water that flowed over a ford long used by the Comanche in trailing stolen herds into Mexico. The name "Horsehead" is said to have

The uniqueness of the writing is that, even though both George and Doris are partaking in an activity that is usually frowned upon, they are still portrayed as protagonists. And they are believable and dynamic as they grow throughout the years. “The woman is emotionally honest and naïve, and the man is emotionally dishonest and naïve,” Folts elucidated. “The woman’s social awareness grows and the man suffers excruciating pain related to the Vietnam War.
derived from the great number of skulls left by the Comanche, who had driven their horses so hard from the last water hole, sixty miles beyond' that the horses drank to their death of the Pecos brine. The herders had to drive nearly 80 miles without water from the Concho to the Pecos. They held their herd on water during the heat of the day until the steers could suck up no more, and headed their herd into the setting sun. They trailed until late, camped for the night, and early the next day, pushed on. Twelve to fifteen miles was considered a good day's drive. Finally, when the white, bitter dust had burned every throat to torture, when every eye was deep sunk in sockets, and lips were cracked to bleeding, when the bawls and moans of the cattle drowned out the curses and shouts of the cowboy pointers, they just let the herd keep walking. Guiding the crazed cattle by alkali ponds that meant death to the herd, they finally reached the Pecos - but the But through it all, there is comedy. It sounds intense, but the beauty of “Same Time Next Year” is that the characters end up in real situations, and it’s funny. Some of the realism and comedy is largely thanks to the two actors: Michael Christopher and Lynetta Zuber. “Both (Christopher and Zuber) brought things to these (characters) that I never could have imagined, and that thrills me,” Folts said excitedly. And the camaraderie within

Altogether, 300 of the original 2,000 were lost on the torturous trail. Charles Goodnight, the intrepid trail blazer, termed the Pecos River "The graveyard of the cowman's hopes. The Pecos' I hated it," Goodnight said, "It was as treacherous as the Indians themselves." North they went, up the east side of the Pecos River. A more desolate country they had never seen. Steep, narrow trails occasionally led down to water but often quicksand pulled the steers under. The waters were filled with fish, but the animal life that drew the most attention was the rattlesnakes. They saw hundreds of them.

It was named after John Pope, an early railway surveyor: Once over the river to the west side, the herds trailed north to the site of Carlsbad. Then, for fear of the Mescalero Apaches, they crossed back east to pass the Rio Hondo area east of present-day Roswell.

UFO sighting reports are on the rise
By Donald Burleson eople have been seeing apparently anomalous objects in the skies for a very long time, yet they were once reluctant to report these sightings, and it’s interesting to ponder why this might be. The general understanding in the field of UFO studies is
that the major cause of reluctance to report a sighting has always been fear of ridicule or censure. One might have thought that fear of some government reprisal would be a common reason, but in my experience it rarely is. No, people are afraid of being laughed at, or of having their friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers, or bosses think they’re daffy, or a member of some flying saucer lunatic fringe. I can certainly understand the concern. The fear of disapproval is starting to wane, but even today some people think ill of you if you’re interested in UFOs. I was once involved in an online discussion thread, about a completely unrelated topic, when

16 | VISION MAGAZINE / THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2013
someone noticed some of my UFO-themed book listings on Amazon and said, in effect: “Well, why should we care about the opinions of a UFO nut case?” And this in spite of the fact that I am notoriously one of the “hard science” guys in this field, with a reputation for not believing anything at all without evidence. In some people’s minds, the whole subject of UFOs is still suspect. And in all truth, some UFO enthusiasts tend to contribute to that situation by making extravagant, unfounded, unprovable claims. (“Suchand-such UFO is definitely from Zeta Reticulae.” Or “I get abducted by aliens every day.”) If we stick to a scientific view of the matter and avoid
ShurFine Fancy Cut Yams ShurFine Gravy Fresh Baked Pumpkin Pie Brown & Serve Rolls Salad Mix
making wild, unsupported assertions, things make more sense and the public thinks more highly of our efforts. It appears that to some extent people are getting over their f ear of ridicule when it comes to reporting UFOs. For one thing, so many people have seen them now that one knows one can report a sighting without being thought insane. Besides, it’s easier than ever now to file a report. MUFON, the Mutual UFO Network, has an online Case Management System where anyone can report a sighting. When someone does file a report, the MUFON State Director (in New Mexico that’s me) immediately receives an email and assigns the case to
an exam-certified field investigator to be followed up. MUFON received 600 sighting reports in the U.S. in the month of September 2013 alone. To be sure, the vast majority of sightings tur n out to be honestly mistaken reactions to conventional aircraft, balloon launches, meteors, and various weather phenomena. But a small percentage of sightings will always be unaccountable in those terms, and that’s what keeps life interesting. Currently here in New Mexico I have over a dozen open sighting cases being worked on, at least two of which are accompanied by very intriguing photographic evidence. Our skies have probably always been replete with strange airborne objects. But now people are more willing to talk about having seen them.
