Thoughts

A

new year is upon us. Standing at the threshold of 2011, one can’t help but have a sense of hope for what these next twelve months will hold. The year is a clean slate, an empty canvas. There are many who have resolved to tighten their wallets, shed a few pounds, and broaden their horizons in one way or another during the year. I am no different. And though I know that good habits can be adopted at any time, there’s just something encouraging about starting at the beginning when the balance of failures and successes is still in my favor. There is a book that I’ve been reading slowly over the last few months and have been mulling over. It’s not long and the chapters are each only a page or two, but the content has been powerful for me. It’s called The War of Art and is written by Steven Pressfield. It speaks of “Resistance” – mostly in reference to the art of writing – how to identify and overcome it in order to break through creative blocks. I’ve found that the message applies, beyond the arts, to many practical parts of my life and I have been prompted to take action. Now is the time. In this issue, I hope you’ll enjoy the writing and photographs of many local artists. For most of them, I suspect, arranging words on a page or capturing images is a hobby – a passion that doesn’t pay the bills, but is necessary to life nonetheless. I have huge admiration for those that have found a way to create and do what they love. For those of us that have not yet discovered that time or space in our lives, perhaps it is now. “Never forget: This very moment, we can change our lives. There never was a moment, and never will be, when we are without the power to alter our destiny.” (Taken from The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield.) H.H.

Murder in the Arroyo

t s Fir

e c a l P

by Sam Nichols

Detective Milo Loaki ducked under the yellow police tape and ambled toward Sergeant Jim Stiers. “What are you doing here, Milo?” Sergeant Stiers said, a scowl crossing his face. “Good morning, Sergeant. I came to offer my assistance.” Short and dapper, Milo wore his usual attire: a dark suit, red paisley bow tie, round glasses the size of drink coasters, and a comfortable smile. “You ever make pancakes and drop one on the floor? That’s what we got here. Splat! The guy was drunk and drove into the arroyo, no seatbelt. He was ejected, and now he’s mush. Open and shut. An accident.” Sergeant Stiers said this with his usual comic book vocabulary. He crossed his thick arms and looked down at Milo. “Thanks for the offer, but I think I can handle it. Goodbye.” A year earlier, the local paper had celebrated several big cases Milo had solved and gave him the moniker “Super Sleuth.” A fellow detective told Milo that when the sergeant read the article, he turned red, called him a “Super Hotdog” trying to get headlines, made a rude comment about his bow tie, then threw the newspaper in the trash can. Sergeant Stiers had treated Milo rotten ever since. “I have no doubt everything is under control, Sergeant. May I look at the scene anyway?” They stood atop the thirty-foot arroyo along Route 602 by Nizhoni Boulevard. The wrecked remains of a Ford pickup lay below. “Knock yourself out. Just don’t mess with anything. The medical investigator hasn’t arrived yet.” Surprised by his approval, Milo thanked him and made his descent. At the bottom, he approached the vehicle and stood by the driver’s door, fingers interlaced, thumbs tapping. He appraised everything; his acute mind missed nothing. The engine compartment was crushed. The windshield, detached and shattered, lay across the hood. Both front tires were buckled and flat. The cab and bed formed a vee, the frame broken. Blood stained the headrest and backrest of the driver’s seat as well as the windshield. Milo observed no other stains. Beer bottles littered the floor, and the cab smelled of alcohol. “I know what you’re doing, Milo. I see those thumbs of yours moving,” Sergeant Stiers called out as he climbed down to the scene. “Don’t go thinking this is some kind of terrorist attack or something. It’s a simple accident.

So beat it. Shoo.” Milo walked to a yellow tarp a short distance from the front of the vehicle. Beneath it laid the prone body of a middle-aged man, his face battered. Blood and dirt covered the back of the man’s head and shirt, mostly around the shoulders. His palms were also stained red. The ground around the body was undisturbed. “Those wheels in your head are turning. What’s wrong?” “I do not think this was an accident.” “Well, Milo, what you don’t know is that I have a witness—a hitchhiker. He saw the driver swerve, loose control, and crash in the arroyo.” Milo closed his eyes and interlaced his fingers, his thumbs doing a ditty. When he opened them, he said, “Congratulations. You have identified either the murderer, or someone involved in the murder.” “What are you talking about?” Two officers standing nearby moved closer. Milo stepped toward the sergeant and lowered his voice. “As I am sure you noticed there is blood and dirt on the back of the dead man’s head and shirt. I believe he received his injuries while he lay on his back. Since he is face down and there is no indication he moved after he was ejected, I suspect he was assaulted elsewhere. Afterward, he was placed in the driver’s seat, thus causing the bloodstains on the headrest and backrest. Finally, there is blood on his hands but nothing on the steering wheel. He did not drive that vehicle; therefore, your witness is lying.” Sergeant Stiers’s eyes widened, his lips pursed, and his fists clenched. He turned to one of the eavesdropping officers. “Get the evidence techs here and tell them I want everything fingerprinted, swabbed, and collected.” He turned back to Milo. “You ruined my morning. I hope you’re happy. You can leave my accident scene now—I mean crime scene. And . . . uh . . . good work.” He turned and walked off yelling, “Get me that witness.” As Milo made his way back up the arroyo, he realized the sergeant had surprised him for the second time that morning.

discovering you for the first time, our hands meet at the point of a particular melody. soft tones joined at the hips of smooth transition, this music is something special. my palm motions against yours as my fingers begin to curl into your pattern. beyond nerves and expectation, this was surely the dream i had during the last measure of sleep. you wearing that exact sunset. that canary red horizon trussed about your shoulders that drape in tangents of true continuity. from my view, your beauty is a waterfall, from your eyes down to your toes i’m lost in fascination and mesmerized by how close to the edge i can get before falling for your charm. your voice the sound of water, harmonic and soothing, flow with reason and humor. the shining shores of smiles is where your lips, the combination of mist and sunlight, project the spectrum of colors that illuminate the corner of curiosity to the tip of happiness. my eyes now gliding, hovering to meet yours in the middle of the sky. with one i embrace your hand, my other cambers to the arc of your back, pulling you closer to the limit of anticipation, and our eyes meet. our roots pace to the rhythm of our song. we drift from this atmosphere and float to another, completely misplaced. the score illuminates as i sway us in one direction then the next. leading you along a path to heaven. the steps lift and spin from one cloud to another. the view is spectacular. the stars and moon immense, nothing but twilight. we look down in a room filled with the world and we only see ourselves in a world made for two. in the moment of honest emotion the laws of reality fall to anarchy. gravity falls and no longer are we grounded from sky, our hopes and dreams. time is no longer the enemy of age, we are immortal. distance no longer keeps us from destination, what we seek is only the next step away. at the height of a note i cast you graciously. you spiral, breaking the boundary of evolution. you are fire, dancing spontaneous and amazing. with color and warmth, you radiate. i watch you in wonderful motion as you gradually circle and nestle back into rhythm. we move, we glide. our hands tessellate, they are complete. i am not the same. some moments you can’t describe with words, but for moments like these emotions were prescribed. my heart speaks in tones, a beating timbre that only you can hear. suddenly i don’t need the air, i am breathless. the moment becomes ours..the music calms. our waltz turns to honey, slow and sweet. i lower you, a natural dip past persuasion. my strength is your trust. hope and desire triumph. eyes locked and smiles simmer knowing this moment is nothing short of purity, passion, and devotion. the true makings of what will become our first kiss.

Life is Good

by David DeWeese

The sun was just peeking over the mountains, starting to spray the top of the aspens with its morning light. I adjusted my mesh mask, pulled the cap tighter over my ears and secured my fingerless gloves. All camo, of course, just like the rest of my outfit: jacket, shirt, boots, pants, even my bow and arrows. After all, mule deer do have great sight along with the sense of smell and hearing, they are so famous for. I was on the first day of a 21-day bow hunt for a mule deer buck. I parked my truck in the early-morning darkness and walked into an area known as Grasshopper Canyon. The anticipation and excitement settled into my stomach. I used, one last time, my “scent killer” spray and got ready to try and sneak up on an animal who was in his own element, primed and ready to escape all predators (wolves, coyotes, mountain lions and me!). He has all the advantages; I have the will to try. I started to slowly walk up an old logging road that ends up in Tampico Springs. The forest was coming to life. A crow croaked at the rising sun. A pack of coyotes, a couple of ridges away, let their howls loose one more time before quieting down to wait for another sundown, so they could start the howling ritual all over again. Squirrels and chipmunks darted to and fro, stopping to bark every once in awhile. This is the time I am closest to our creator. As life starts anew every morning in the forest, my life calms down, my prayers are prayed, my love for my family, my friends, my God and his creations are rejuvenated and re-grown. The best church in the whole world! Brings smiles to my heart, calmness to my soul, and joy to my whole being. Now . . . back to the hunt. My slow walk, consisting of ten quiet paces, and then searching the vicinity for the movement, pays off with some movement. Not the animal I am searching for, though. I become still as still can be as the skunk waddles by me at about ten yards. I try not to even breathe so I won’t startle the skunk. I don’t need a tomato bath this early in the hunt. After my fragrant friend moves off into the woods, I start the “slow walk” process once again. Ten steps, look around. Ten steps, look around . . . more movement! Fifty yards up the road “mama” doe steps out. She is a big beautiful female mule deer. Again, I stop all movement. It is early in the season. No mating going on for a couple of months. But you never know. There might be a buck hanging around just for platonic company. Another doe steps out from the bushes and another doe. Now a spotted fawn only a couple of months old. Still another doe. When all is said and done, 7 does, a couple yearlings and a couple fawns are all feeding within 50 yards of me! Closer they move. Closer still. 40 yards! 30 yards! 20 yards!! Pretty soon mama is standing 5 yards from me!! I am amazed as I try to stay completely still. I feel the sweat start to trickle down my back as the sun finds the spot where I am standing. I follow the movement of the deer with my eyes, trying to keep my head still. Mama passes me by. She is behind me now. I swear I can feel her breath on the back of my neck. Suddenly, I hear a snort so close behind me that I can’t help it, I flinch ever so slightly. I turn my head slowly around until, out of the corner of my eye, I see her 5 feet away, sniffing and trying to figure out just what the heck I am! I become a statue. She sniffs some more, satisfies her curiosity (at least a little) and starts to wander off. As mama and the rest of her herd stroll off down the old road, I let out a big breath. I guess I had stopped breathing for a while. Then, as I watched them disappear into the woods I realized that I had just had another of my moments in Paradise. I couldn’t wait to call my wife and kids to tell them about my experiment. Life is good!


A Happy Memory

by Jim DeWeese

It was 1941, a long time ago. The snow crackled under the weight of tires traveling down the run-down section of town. It was Christmas morning. The nine-year-old boy stared out the hospital window, wishing he could be outside playing with the neighborhood boys. None of them were his friend. But about 20 other children were his friends. Each of them anxiously awaited their families to come to Barney Children’s Hospital. It wasn’t much compared to today’s standards, but each patient was treated with loving care. The hospital was actually two homes connected by a tunnel so the young patients could be moved about as needed. I was one of those patients; I had broken my left femur and had contracted osteomylitis, a bone-destroying disease.  I had been placed in a plaster-of-Paris body cast. It was my second time in a hospital. As the snow came down I received a message from my mother who lived 20 miles away. My father died before I was born and right after the recession money was tight. My mother could not get to Dayton, Ohio where I was a patient. The snow kept coming. Other children saw their families. I didn’t.  I just stared out the window. I was lucky. Two days earlier the boy inside the iron lung in my room had died. For several months I heard the constant pumping of the air inside the iron lung. All that was outside was his head. We could talk to each other when his lungs permitted. But he lost the fight just before Christmas. I kept staring out the window . . . then I started hearing Christmas carolers.  They entered the hospital and brought smiles and laughter to all of us. As time came for them to leave, each of us received a small toy. We could play with them in our beds. The only limit to enjoying the toy was our imagination. I know I have had Christmases in which I received more gifts. But that year bore me a memory, which to this day I cherish.

I Just Don’t Understand the Opposite Sex by Jessica Thompson

Look at him. He looks so different, but then so cool. Look at his outfit. Look at his walk. Look at how he greets people and how he spits; that disgusts me. Eww, that is not normal. How was it that that movie pronounced abnormal? Oh, that’s right they said, “Abby normal.” Ha! So as I was saying, you guys are weird, “Abby normal,” and just weird again. Why wear your clothes baggy? Why wear your pants to your knees? Why wear a T-shirt as long as a dress? Why? Does wearing your clothes like this make you look cool and west side? Why? That’s just stupid. Especially when your pants are the way they are; how are you supposed to run? You’re saying, “Oh yeah, man, I totally almost got jumped last night, but I got away.” How did you get away? Pull up your pants as if it were a dress and run! And the guys who almost jumped you said, “Run, princess, run!” That would have been one hell of a story to tell. Ha! Oh! And when you “ran away” did you waddle away like a duck? Or like a crippled person trying his hardest to look cool at the same time? I’m guessing . . . you waddled away? Ha! That’s a classic wannabe gangster. Whoa, now wait, were not finished talking about you. What about the whole fist-pound greeting? You guys go up to each other and bump fists and make sound effects afterwards. Or when you guys come up to each other you automatically start singing the “F.U.N.” song. What’s with that? Weirdo . . . So anyways . . . why do you guys do that? Is it so girls will think you’re all macho-man with no trace of feminine in him instead of this nice guy who is sweet and kind and funny with very little feminine in him? Whatever it is you guys are trying to do . . . you’re “Abby normal.”

Grief

by Jon Marshall

e c a l P t s Fir Thought they’d always be around.

It’s like that train rumble rolling around Joy-Wright Mountain, off way in the distance; so lonesome, makin’ a body want to sit and cry til the Saints think to call us home. Sometimes I still hear that bull gator under Silvy Bridge where Bobby dared me to sneak’n grab his tail. How does he do it? Livin’ in that holler, no other gators around, all alone? The folks passed years ago. Them being so much older, seemed natural. Both vanishing like starlight in the dawn. But not the others. Grew up playing with my brother, sister. Faded away: she first, stubborn to the end; then him, denying anything could be so wrong.

Years later, felt that about my grandkids, too. Now, gone to the four winds; I, to a fifth, heart baked bare by a dry Southwestern sun. Once I wandered deep into Tiawichi Creek, becoming lost in those thick woods. Stumbled upon an old cabin now forgotten by everyone who ever knew it. A feeling of loss drifted about that place like an early fall fog over Mill Pond Bayou, just laying itself over the smokey water, like my dog Dori used to drape on me when I laid upon the cool ground staring at a night sky wanting me to fall into its infinity. Used to drive out Afton Thrash road with Brad, way off in the east county, where we could ride’n drink beer with nobody carin’. Ten years later, he was gone: snuffed out. Don’t know why. I still think about the way he always had my back. Some said he held no moral fiber, but I knew better.

Uncle Bill, driving at dusk, hit a Mexican on a tractor running no lights. They say he didn’t know what hit him. Maybe. Maybe we always know what hits us, eventually. Older sister has that Alzheimer’s. Barely knows me. But always asks where’ve I been. Always say I’m back now. She smiles like that’s a comfort. Didn’t know she missed me til a part of her was gone. Where’d they all go? Thought they’d always be around. Never gave it a mind they wouldn’t. Not even once.

New Mexico Poets by Thomas Davis

Mexican red wolves stalk him. The old man stops, listens to silence, sniffs air, then turns, a great rack of horns growing suddenly out of dark hair, his body thickening, elongating, black hooves where his feet were. Wolves come into the sun struck meadow, eyes alive with the hunt, tongues lolling out of open mouths as they run. The old bull elk starts, crashes into aspen trees surrounding the meadow, slams mountain earth with hooves, puffs of smoke wisping behind enormous bounds as he flies uphill toward the mountain peak’s dark rock and white snow. As the elk flees the wolves run even lower to the ground, blue and brown eyes riveted to the elk’s trail, breaths deep and full as they run after their prey. For hours the chase goes on. The afternoon sun climbs to its zenith and blazes. The elk moves from aspen to pine and spruce into matted falls of timber in forests untouched by humans. The wolves run in silence, intent on their hunt, howls held back until the moment when they can leap on the great elk’s back and bring it staggering violently toward the ground and death. Then the elk, within sight of the tree-line and its stunted pines, leaps into a circle of pine, spruce, and aspen past rock ovens made with piled stones. He jumps up on a massive sandstone platform built in the circle’s center. Bluebirds, a golden eagle, sparrows, a great horned owl fly out of the elk’s brown fur, the dark fur on its chest. Jack rabbit hind legs thumping ground breaks silence. Wind swirls inside the tree circle and sets aspen leaves, deep grasses beside the sandstone platform, singing. The great elk rises to its hind legs. The wolf pack stops outside the circle of trees and glares fire at the shrinking of the huge elk into an old man with white hair and a back bent from hard years of living. The wolf pack’s female leader steps hesitantly toward the old man into the trees’ circle.

S

d n o ec

e c a l P

Inside the trees the wind swirls faster as the old man watches her. Wolf hair transforms into human skin. A young woman steps out of wolf shape and stands with her slender right hand on one of the rock ovens. Wolves outside the circle begin to howl; their voices ring down mountain slopes, shivering fear into mountain air, rock, and the snowy peak. Clouds grow from sunlight into towering billows that soar into late afternoon, blocking off the sun and sending wind inside the trees down and around the mountain and out into the world. Roots start to grow out of the old man’s feet into the barren density of sandstone. Within seconds he stands as a ponderosa pine, branches snaking out in different directions from the red trunk, top branches so high they scrape the dark bottoms of thunderheads. The young woman watches the old man becoming a tree. Her face is as calm and serene as a lake surface when the universe stops and no ripple mars the water’s sky-mirror perfection. She turns from the ponderosa pine and turns toward the pack grown silent and watchful. “The earth lives,” the woman says. She lifts her arms and tips her head toward the cloud roiled sky. White feathers spread over her body; a black beak with a yellow bridge running to bird eyes grows out of her face. She spreads snowy egret wings and folds black legs and yellow feet behind her as she soars into fierce winds. The pack howls and runs in mad circles away from the circle of trees, the egret flying, the ponderosa growing out of stone.

Looking Up by Dana Letts

I looked up the qualities of an Aries: energetic, passionate, pioneering, helpful. Am I this person described on Oracle? I could have added to the list: ungrounded, stubborn, procrastinator. I moved to New Mexico and instantly (for the first time) my body felt the earth’s heartbeat, mirrored in the drums of my Native brothers and sisters. I used to give them full credit for the heartbeat, the groundedness, but I’ve come to know it is really our collective beat, taking turns. When one of us falters, immersed in learning important lessons or mired in self-pity, another moves gently in, assumes responsibility for continuing. I’ve learned that is why we have chosen to gather here, to support each other as we falter, to celebrate each other’s successes, to cheer each other as we move skipping and stumbling along our individual paths. Always with the knowledge that we are not alone. For we are a collective, you see. The afternoon my mother died, after she was gone, I returned to her apartment where I inhaled the scent of her, some indescribable something that had brought me comfort for as long as I could remember. I thought that if I really concentrated, inhaled into every pore, every cell, I’d be able to recreate her scent at will. And of course, within moments after I left, I could hardly recall it at all. Similarly at night I often go outdoors and look up at the stars, trying to absorb their beauty and wonder into my cells in the hope that at some point, when I can no longer see their clarity, I will be able to draw upon their peace. But like my mother’s scent, I know my memory of them will dim. So I am content to try very hard to celebrate the moment. And when I am done I walk back inside and my dear Taurus, steadier and more constant than I, always says, “Welcome home, Baby.”

Exhale by Chris Huizinga

I am home. The morning sun has crept above the tallest ridge to warm this chilled high point of the Earth. I am awakened from my sleep, I am alive. I step off my rock bed and look over an immense blanket of needle green and rock. My soul breathes out a sigh, exhaling the anxiety of obligations and the intermittent whys of life. I am home. My eyes are wide as they comb the meadows from the vantage point we have scaled. The wind cools my neck encompassing my spirit with peace and beauty. I am home.

I am here, may my heart and soul live here forever In the trees and hills and on the barren rock. May my feet always step one in front of the other, pushing upward to discover. May my eyes see the beauty up close and from afar Noticing the smallest and largest details of this magnificent creation. May my ears listen to the sound of the Earth and of the mountains Hearing her heartbeat and the air she inhales and releases. May I never grow tired of feeling the rock under foot and the bark of the tallest giants. I am home. May I never leave.

Aushwitz by Ethel Davis

E. Poland January 27, 1945 Deep January never felt so warm – when the strong arms of the Red Army picked up the skeleton-like people and set them on blankets in the snow. The evil snake had reached down deep into their bodies and tried to snatch their very souls, but the soldiers gathered them like sick dogs in their arms and set them into the sunshine. Libertacja was like the swinging of a thousand swings up into the air – a day when poetry began to be written.

Life Is A Gift by Alicia

This is the story my mother told me as she held my hand; Daughter, look far out to the horizon and witness all of gods land. Look further than the ice caps if you cannot see, where the star glistens. Remember that for every deed, God is watching you from his chair of Judgment. Be graceful, be grateful, life is a gift. Child born from love, you’ll grow old and weary as I. You must never lose the path of greatness, a venture we take as we travel along fate.

The world is a challenge we must take, an adventure so full of tragedies. Never lose sight of your destiny as you may go blind and all you’ll have left is memories. Don’t sway away from hardship, it’s a sacrifice we must all embrace.

Abuelita by Penny Hyde

I don’t understand goddesses like Isis, the giver of life, with her strange headdress, her wings and tight dress. I understand Abuelita, the mother of my mother, standing under the stars in the low doorway holding a candle, her eyes searching, wary. Who is this caller in the night, she wants to know. Who’s traveling this seldom traveled road? But, earlier she followed my trail through the desert and she expects me. She nods toward the fireplace behind her, tells me to enter. I understand thick adobe walls. They’ve heard all the mothers’ stories, seen the women bent over, talking in low voices. These walls keep silent. They know about time.

36

Some of the stories have floated out the window, the curtains gently blowing as they pass. They are shadows now on the llano, breezes bending the reed grass down along the arroyo.

gallupjourney@yahoo.com

I see the flour on Abuelita’s hands, hands that shaped dough into biscuits and tortillas, wiped the tears from my mother’s eyes, smoothed the desert sage into the bed sheets after she had washed and wrung them, hung them, flapping all day in the wind. I see those hands, holding the shawl around her shoulders at sunset, the pink sky melting along the black edge of the mesa. I see them chopping wood, see their shapes in the curling cedar smoke. Hands that stirred the bean pot, hands that waved good-bye, gripped shoulders, held fistfuls of corn, carefully pressing each seed into its little planting hole. I understand this woman Abuelita, this Curandera, this mother of my mother who understands me too, this singing woman who also snaps and bites. She has been following the shadow of my trail a long time. “Tell me, child,” she says, “Tell me why you’ve come.”

Sharon Burch

Circle of Light Mural:

In 1994, Ellis Tanner commissioned Navajo artist, Chester Kahn, to paint murals of prominent Navajos on the walls of his business, Ellis Tanner Trading Company. He wanted to inspire Navajo youth with positive role models while encouraging them to take pride in their culture, language, history, and traditions. The seven-year mural project was completed in 2000 when Ellis established the non-profit organization, “Circle of Light.” The group’s objective is to foster a strong sense of cultural pride and self worth in Navajo youth and to continue their education, along with non-Navajos, about the rich history, culture, language, and positive contributions of the Navajo people. Please stop in to Ellis Tanner Trading Company and see the faces of Navajo achievement. Gallup Journey Magazine intends to feature a section of this mural every issue. For more information on the “Circle of Light” please call 505.726.8030 or go to www.navajocircleoflight.org.

Sharon Burch is an internationally known singer/

songwriter. Her songwriting blends the Navajo language and culture into contemporary music. Of the three CDs she has produced, Touch the Earth won an award from the National Association of Independent Distributors & Manufacturers in 1995. Sharon performs throughout the Navajo Nation and the United States, including such places as the Kennedy Center in Washington DC and the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, California.

TOWN Your Resolutions for 2011 By Carole H. Owens Social Security District Manager, Gallup NM It’s that time of year: out with the old and in with the new. You may be thinking about your list of New Year’s resolutions for 2011. There are many important things to consider. May we suggest a few? Each of these will take only a matter of minutes. 1. Get an estimate of your future Social Security benefit. In just a few minutes, you can have an instant, personalized estimate of your future Social Security benefit. Our online Retirement Estimator gives estimates based on your actual Social Security earnings record. This is valuable to know when you’re making plans for your future. Check it out at www. socialsecurity.gov/estimator. 2. Read your mail. Be especially careful about looking at mail that arrives from Social Security. About two to three months before your birthday, you should receive your annual Social Security Statement. Your Statement is a concise, easy-to-read personal record of the earnings on which you have paid Social Security taxes during your working years and a summary of the estimated benefits you and your family may receive in retirement, survivors or disability benefits as a result of those earnings. 3. Visit the ballpark. Not that one; the Ballpark Estimator. It will help you do a better job of saving for your future. It’s true that times have been tough lately. But no matter how much you earn, it’s a good idea to try to save. Check out the Ballpark Estimator for a projection of how much you should save for a comfortable retirement. Go to the ballpark at www. choosetosave.org/ballpark. Deciding to diet, exercise, read more books, or watch less television are all good resolutions. But the ones we suggest don’t require nearly as much work and won’t nag you all year long. Take a few minutes now, and you could have this list of resolutions knocked out in less time than it takes to put together a list of resolutions. Happy New Year from Social Security. Feel free to visit us anytime at www.socialsecurity.gov.

Please plan to be at the Gallup High School’s Kenneth Holloway Auditorium starting at 7:00 pm on January 17, 2011 to witness his amazing performance. Edgar’s concert will include music from a variety of musical genres including classical, pops, big band, Beatles, and rock. Edgar holds a Bachelor of Music in guitar performance from Oklahoma City University and has been named Oklahoma’s Top Performing Artist for over ten years by the Oklahoma Gazette. In Edgar’s concerts audience participation is encouraged – clapping, singing, dancing, snapping, “olés” and “yee-haws” are all a part of his performances. Please join us on January 17.

On-line Medicaid Application Kiosk in Zuni

Recycling Christmas Lights and Trees

In an effort to reach uninsured and potentially Medicaid-eligible families in the State, the New Mexico Human Services Department’s Medical Assistance Division (HSD/MAD), applied for, and was awarded, one of the 2009 Children’s Health Insurance Program Authorization (CHIPRA) grants.  The overall national goal of this CHIPRA grant is to increase and retain the number of eligible, enrolled children in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).   HSD’s plan is to meet CHIPRA’s goals by expanding enrollment opportunities in the state by installing an on-line application kiosk in your area. 

Holiday festivities are coming to an end.  Many celebrate a traditional Christmas through January 6 (Epiphany) and end the season with a Twelfth Night Party.  For those who celebrate Christmas the season’s end may leave you with a number of fading or dying plants and evergreens: trees, garlands, holly, poinsettias, and the like.  Instead of putting them in your trash, thereby adding to the landfill mass, recycle those plants and flowers!  Individuals who compost welcome these items.  If you don’t compost, find someone who does. A tree can be placed in your backyard as a nesting place for birds.  Put some suet, peanut butter with birdseed, or dried bread on the boughs and watch the birds flock to your yard.    If you missed the residential customers Christmas refuse pickup (trees, etc.) the week of December 27-31 call 863-1212 to let them know you have items to be picked up.  The City of Gallup Solid Waste Department will collect extra Christmas refuse only free of charge.  Please set items curbside away from your herbie on your scheduled pickup day.  Trees and evergreens will be chipped and used for mulch on City medians and park space.     Christmas Lights!  The word from the NM Recycling Coalition is that Ace Hardware nationwide is collecting strands of old holiday lights for recycling to benefit Lights For Life through February 15. This nonprofit strives to make life easier for kids with cancer and their families. Lights For Life sells the donated light to a recycling company for the metals. The money helps children with cancer and their families cover the cost of medical bills and other expenses not covered by insurance, as well as to fund kids’ camps and childhood cancer research. 

Gallup’s Ace Hardware is looking into the program.  If you have strands of broken or old lights save them and watch this space for a local collection site or call 722-9257 in the new year.   The state recycling network has provided us with a number of locations where you can take the lights in nearby cities: Albuquerque – Goodwill Stores are accepting the lights but no Ace Hardware stores; Rio Rancho – Ace Hardware 8201 Golf Course Rd NW (792-8600); Santa Fe – Ace Hardware at 2006 Cerrillos Rd Ste 1; Socorro – Randy’s Ace Hardware. 

The New Mexico Human Services Department has placed a new On-line Medicaid Application Kiosk at Zuni Library, Zuni, NM.  The kiosk gives clients the ability to apply for or renew their coverage within their own communities. This eliminates the necessity for families to travel to HSD Income Support Division (ISD) field offices to apply for Medicaid and CHIP coverage. The kiosk also allows clients to submit their applications on-line through a secure server.  They are also able to scan and submit all required documents directly from the kiosk.  The application and documents are then sent on to an HSD/ISD office for processing. By bringing the application process to your community, it is HSD’s intent to help all eligible children in the area get the health care coverage they need and deserve.

Library Presents a Tribute to Dr. MLK Jr.

Throughout the month of January, the Octavia Fellin Library will be offering a wide variety of programs, at both the Main and Children’s Libraries, as a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his legacy. On Wednesday, January 12 at 6:30 pm in the Main Library, the St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church Choir, under the direction of Rev. Regional Joseph, will present, “Lift Every Voice: A Gospel Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King.” The Choir will perform a number of modern gospel songs emerging from the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, which stand side-by-side with historic gospel. A few of the many famous gospel singers during this time period were the Staple Singers, Mahalia Jackson, James Cleveland and Sam Cook. Gospel is considered “A National Treasure.” Letter from the Birmingham Jail, by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will be discussed on Wednesday, January 19 at 6:30 pm in the Main Library. For a copy, please stop by the Main Library or email library@ci.gallup.nm.us. On Saturday, January 22 at 3 pm, the Children’s Library is offering a family program entitled “What Are Your Dreams” with award-winning artist, Professor Dana Chandler. Using a variety of art forms and techniques, Professor Chandler will work hands on with participants to visually express their dream for the future, producing a group piece to be hung in the library. Please register by calling the Children’s Library at (505) 726-6120. The Academy Award winning film Mississippi Burning will be shown with discussion to follow at the Main Library, Thursday, January 27 starting at 6 pm. This is the true story of three civil rights activists who vanish outside a small Mississippi town and the FBI’s investigation and struggle with the contrasting system of the lead agents. Refreshments will be served at each program. For further information email library@ci.gallup.nm.us or call the library at (505) 863-1291.

El Malpais Cave Closures As a preventative measure to preserve cave environments, protect bats and slow the spread of white nose syndrome, all caves at El Malpais National Monument will be closed effective December 6, 2010 according to Superintendent Kayci Cook Collins. While nearly all of the caves in the park have been closed for some time, this notice affects the five caves – Junction, Xenolith, Big Skylight, Four Windows and Braided – which have remained opened. “Federal and state agencies in New Mexico are very concerned about the spread of the fungus, Geomyces destructans, which causes white nose syndrome in bats,” said Collins. “The disease has already killed more than one million bats in the northeastern United States and has spread from New York State all the way to northwest Oklahoma in four years.” It is unclear exactly how the fungus spreads. “Researchers believe bat-to-bat contact is one of the ways the disease moves from cave to cave, however the disease may also be spread from cave to cave by humans on their caving gear,” she said. Collins said the discovery in Oklahoma could easily threaten bat populations at El Malpais. “The species that tested positive in Oklahoma, the Cave myotis, is the first uniquely western species to contract the Geomyces fungus,” she said. “And, more importantly, the Cave myotis is found at El Malpais.” Collins said research is underway to see if the fungus may already be present in monument caves. “Currently, we have no evidence that the fungus is present in our caves, however we have been doing research over the summer and are currently testing cave soil samples to see if the Geomyces strain is here,” she said. “There are several other bat and cave research projects we hope to get underway later this year and next spring that will add to the information we are currently collecting.” While testing for the fungus and monitoring cave environments is the prime focus of the ongoing and future research efforts, Collins said the monument is also seeing which caves do not have bat colonies. “Caves that have maternal colonies, are bat hibernating sites or have agency species of concern must be closed,” she said. “Once we have more solid information from our researchers, we will look at recreational caving options.” For more information regarding the cave closure or white nose syndrome contact El Malpais National Monument by phone at (505) 285-4641; by email at ELMA_Superintendent@nps. gov; or by mail at 123 E. Roosevelt, Grants, NM 87020

Co-op Members Raise $3,530 for Food Pantries Pennies for Pantries, a month-long fundraiser organized by Continental Divide Electric Cooperative, raised $3,530 for the Grants and Gallup food pantries. On Dec. 22, CDEC split the donations equally between the Grants Community Pantry and The Community Pantry in Gallup and delivered checks to the organizations. “I felt gratitude with the monies raised by CDEC; it will go a long way in feeding the families in Cibola and McKinley counties,” said Jim Harlin, executive director for The Community Pantry in Gallup. Harlin and The Community Pantry in Gallup oversee the Grants Community Pantry, which is financially self-sufficient and receives weekly shipments of food from the Gallup organization. More than 2,000 CDEC members contributed their spare change to the pantry fundraiser between Nov. 15 and Dec. 17. In addition, members donated enough nonperishable food to fill two grocery store shopping carts. “It’s great that co-op members came together to support the community, and we are happy to have coordinated this effort,” CDEC General Manager Robert E. Castillo said. The recent Pennies for Pantries fundraiser culminated with a live prize drawing, broadcast on KD Radio in Grants. Everyone who donated money or food was eligible to win. Ethel Nez of Vanderwagen won the grand prize, a Nintendo Wii. Titus Skeet and Darren Johnson won a $50 gift card and $25 gift card, respectively, from Wal-Mart. Because the fundraiser was such a success, the co-op may consider future seasonal fundraisers to benefit other nonprofit organizations throughout CDEC’s service territory.

and Councilors Azua, Enfield, Landavazo, and Wall. We are also grateful for the work of City Manager, Dave Pederson and his staff who have given us advice and grant writing assistance to develop affordable housing. We are also grateful for the many hours of volunteer services and meals brought in by community members. In particular, I would like to thank the Holy Spirit Episcopal Church for the wonderful feasts they provide on a monthly basis to our clients. Thank you again for your support in this endeavor of bringing prosperity to this area and making hope possible. Until next month stay well and do good!
