Madison Steiner shares her story at Deepak Chopra symposium LAUREN DUFF Tri-City Tribune Peach’s Neet Feet has been an inspiration to sick children across the country, and the organization’s founder, Madison Steiner, recently shared her moving message at a Deepak Chopra Symposium in Carlsbad, Calif. Steiner launched Peach’s Neet Feet in 2011 with an effort to bring a smile to the faces of sick children. The organization, which began with Steiner painting shoes in her Farmington home, has evolved Deepak Chopra with Madison Steiner at Sages and Scientists into an international organization.

Aztec’s vote moves free pre-K childcare forward Sixty Aztec 4-year-olds are eligible for free pre-Kindergarten classes after A Gold Star Academy received a conditional use permit from the city to operate a childcare in Westside Plaza. Despite concerns about the children’s safety in a crowded and busy strip mall, the City Commissioners voted 4 to 1

colorful designs on the shoes and 1,600 personalized shoes have been delivered to the children. The organization was the winner of the 2012 Random Acts of Kindness Foundation’s Extreme Kindness Challenge and Steiner received the 2012 Good Samaritan Real Heroes Award for Northwest New Mexico. Because of this inspirational journey, Steiner was asked to speak at the Deepak Chopra Sages and Scientists Symposium. Deepak Chopra is a doctor specializing in internal medicine. He has written more than 60 books and focuses on holistic health and alternative medicines.

Shooting prompts FPD to increase patrols during games DEBRA MAYEUX Tri-City Tribune The Farmington Police Department will increase its patrols in and around Hutchison Stadium in response to an Aug. 14 drive-by shooting that left bullet holes in the press box. With the high school football season starting soon, the police and Farmington Schools have been meeting to devise a plan that allows the public an opportunity to attend the games and feel safe.

“We want people to have an enjoyable evening at the game, if they choose to go,” Farmington Police Lt. Taft Tracy said. The police will do this by increasing patrols on both Dustin and Sunset avenues, while also having at least four school resource officers patrolling the stadium during football games, Det. Michelle Delese said. Delese, who heads up the school resource officer program, said the officers have been asking students to please contact them if they

Each patient will be seen by a triage team who decides what treatment will be best and most needed,” said Dr. Jennifer Thompson, Mission of Mercy co-chair. Because long lines are expected, patients are encouraged to bring a chair, hat, water, and snacks. “If they plan arriving early, they need to be prepared for the overnight stay,” said Dr. John McNeill, Mission of Mercy co-chair. Patients also are asked to bring a list of medications they are currently taking and medical history information. Patients may continue to take regular medications before the event. However, they should consult with a doctor if they have any questions, McNeill added. A photo I.D. is not required to receive the provided services. As patients walk into the clinic, they will receive a medical evaluation, talk with the triage team, and receive X-rays. Then, they will enter the clinic floor, which will From left, local dentists Drs. Charles Schumacher, John McNeill, Jennifer Thomp-

childcare the children. While the program is not based on income, it is based on need, Tedrow said. “It is based on the fact that CYFD and the state are out there looking at children who have been staying with neighbors, staying with grandma and grandpa or a stay-at-home mom, who might not be able to put them in pre-K,” she explained. The program, developed nine years ago by the Bill Richardson administration, targets 4-year-old students and provides them with halfday classes in preparation for kindergarten. Prior to her receiving the funds to expand services from Farmington into Aztec, only 7 percent of Aztec children had access to state-funded pre-K classes. Twenty students were attending another private daycare, and 20 were being bused out of Aztec and into Farmington for services because, according to Tedrow, the program only existed in Farmington, Bloomfield, and within Central Schools’ boundaries. With the addition of the new facility and 60 new slots opening up, Aztec would then receive services for 29 percent of its 4-yearold children. The permit, however, was met with resistance from Aztec city planners, who asked the Commission to deny the conditional use permit. “The primary concern


staff has is the safety concern. Staff is not contesting the need for additonal child care in Aztec,” said Roshana Moojen, a city planner. “Staff does not believe it is a safe location.” Westside Plaza consists of two neighboring strip malls with a variety of businesses, including a Domino’s Pizza and a Durango Joe’s drive-through location. The parking lot can be busy at times and there was a concern about dropping children off in that parking lot. Tedrow said the building’s owner gave her permission to use an alley behind the building as a drop-off point. “The landlord has worked with me to make the most feasible and safe options for the children. In the back – I know we consider it an alley, but it is used for loading and unloading,” Tedrow said. Moojen agreed the alley could be used, because it is on private property and the city would not tell the property owner how to use the alleyway. She, however, was concerned that the alley access could be changed if the property was sold in the future. “We are pesky planners and we are supposed to think long-term,” Moojen said. “At this point in time there is access and people do go whichever way is most convenient for them.” Moojen’s other concern was an off-site playground proposed by Tedrow. The






property owner gave her permission to use an empty lot across Frederick Avenue, and planners did not like the idea of children crossing the road for access to an outdoor recreation area. Tedrow said she would put in a crosswalk, have the children accompanied by adults. and have those adults wearing bright-colored safety vests. The children also would be encouraged to hold a rope that would be strung up while they were crossing the street. This did not sit well with Commissioner Sherri Sipe. “I can see that we could use another pre-K program. I think the need is there, especially for the low-income, but for myself I am having major heartburn about the safety of the kids,” she said. “I know Frederick Road and that strip mall. I’ve about got run over there myself many times,” Sipe continued. “It’s not a good place for a daycare. I don’t think it’s a safe place for those kids. That is my gut feeling.” Commissioner Jim Crowley pointed out that Tedrow had a safety plan, which she presented to the Commission, and that plan was approved by CYFD. “There is risk at every location. I’ve read that at other locations throughout the state parents walk their children inside,” he said. “You never eliminate risk, you do the best you can to minimize it. The concern for the safety

of those kids is of the utmost, that is why you have a safety plan.” Commissioner Gene Current agreed, saying “The playground aside, delivering kids and picking kids up is going to be dangerous no matter where you are. There is risk in everything. It looks like the safety issues have been addressed. You could put it out in the country and there would still be risks. I feel they are going to be responsible and handle this in an appropriate manner.” Rod Foss, an Aztec resident and owner Just Us Kids in Aztec, stated that he did not believe the safety issues had been met. He called the proposal “mind-boggling,” and claimed the issue had nothing to do with children. “My concern is when you are designing a childcare you need to keep the kids first,” Foss said. “Would the

city of Aztec design a park and put the parking lot across the street?” He stated that if Tedrow did not receive the permit, and her grant dollars went back to the state, then he would be able to take in 60 more children through CYFD funds in FY2015. He currently provides preK services to 20 children. “I’m going to get 80 kids next year, if you lose your grant,” Foss said, adding that he has been “swallowing it for our community,” because “the Aztec people need childcare.” Tedrow stated that if the center was not approved the funding for the 60 children would be gone and not available again for maybe two to three years. Her plans would be to get this facility off the ground by using the state funds, and then within a year’s time expand the facility by building a new childcare center from the

ground up in a new location. The new center could be built within six months of Tedrow identifying and purchasing the land, and it would be a facility licensed for 100 children. Commissioners asked City Attorney Larry Thrower whether a time constraint could be placed on the conditional use permit, because the permits typically are in place as long as the property owner remains the same. He said he could research the issue but it would take time, and Crowley pointed out time was something Tedrow did not have. “I’m looking at a time limit. We need to look at making some type of decision yea or nay with a ruling,” Crowley said. He moved to approve the conditional use permit. It was seconded by Commissioner Roberta Clover, and all but Commissioner Sipe voted in the affirmative to allow the permit.

Does ‘stop-and-frisk’ take policing too far? A federal judge this week ruled that the New York Police Department’s “stop-andfrisk” practices are unconstitutional, amounting to a “selective enforcement of the law based on considerations of race” that fell disproportionately upon the city’s black and Latino population. Critics said police practices were little more than racial profiling, but New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was enraged. “I worry for my kids and I worry for your kids. I worry for you and I worry for me,” Bloomberg said. “Crime can come back any time the criminals think they can get away with things. We just cannot let that happen.” Is stop-and-frisk intolerable or indispensable? Joel Mathis and Ben Boychuk, the RedBlueAmerica columnists, debate. MATHIS: Defenders of stop-and-frisk policing generally offer two defenses of the practice. First, it’s effective. Second, if it seems discriminatory, it’s only because crime is concentrated in minority communities. U.S. Dis-

RED & BLUE STATES Joel Mathis & Ben Boychuk

trict Judge Shira Scheindlin’s ruling this week, however, demolishes both those rationales. Effective? Who would know? As Scheindlin pointed out, the NYPD’s method for tracking stop-and-frisk encounters is deeply flawed – in many cases, officers don’t even turn in the required paperwork. The department, she wrote, “has hindered the collection of accurate data concerning the constitutionality of its stops, and made no effective use of the limited data that is available.” The available data is damning. Yes, stop-and-frisk encounters happen far more often with blacks and Latinos than with whites – but out of 4.4 million stops, just 6 percent resulted in an arrest. Another 6 percent resulted in summonses for civil violations that fell short of even misdemeanor criminal ac-

tivity. Eighty-eight percent resulted in no further action. That 12 percent hit rate – a generous estimate, incidentally – is fine if you’re searching for needles in haystacks; it’s unacceptably low when officers are supposed to have “reasonable suspicion” for making a stop. As for the idea that police are concentrating their activity where crime happens, Scheindlin found that even after adjusting for crime rates, stop-and-frisk disproportionately occurred in minority communities – usually with less justification. Bottom line: Stop-andfrisk is ineffective and discriminatory. Writer Ta-Nahesi Coates recently responded to those who suggest black men should bear the burden of stop-and-frisk because of criminality among African-

Americans. “They hold that neither I, nor my 12-year-old son, nor any of my nephews, nor any of my male family members deserve to be judged as individuals by the state,” he wrote. “Instead we must be seen as members of a class more inclined to criminality. It does not matter that the vast, vast majority of black men commit no violent crime at all.” That’s not an intrusion most of us would bear. It’s frankly un-American. Simple fairness – and the Constitution – shouldn’t let us impose that burden on others. BOYCHUK: Contrary to critics’ claims, stop-and-frisk is indeed an effective crime deterrent. If Judge Scheindlin’s decision holds up, New Yorkers will soon discover just how effective it was. Understand exactly what Scheindlin ruled in the classaction lawsuit against the NYPD policy: Of 19 egregious stops cited in a case covering eight years, the judge determined 14 of them were unconstitutional. Sounds like a lot of abuse

until you learn that the NYPD conducted 4.4 million stops over the same period. The judge, therefore, voided an entire program because 0.0000031 percent of stops between 2004 and 2012 violated individuals’ rights. Even one violation is too many, you say. Maybe so. But civil libertarians sometimes forget what government exists to do: protect life and property. Murder, rape and robbery deprive people of their rights, too, in the worst ways possible. Stop-and-frisk has been an integral part of a broader strategy to slash crime dramatically in the Big Apple. Major felonies fell 31 percent from 2001 to 2012. There were 414 murders in New York last year, the lowest since 1963. It’s true that the vast majority of black and Hispanic men commit no violent crimes. But it’s also true that blacks and Hispanics commit nearly 99 percent of all violent crimes in New York City’s 88th Precinct, where the class-action suit originated, and more than 93 percent of crimes in the city.

Reality didn’t seem to matter to Scheindlin, who selectively highlighted supposed racial disparities in stops while downplaying actual crime demographics. The implication, as City Journal’s Heather Mac Donald points out, is that while “whites and Asians commit less than 1 percent of violent crime in the 88th Precinct and less than 6 percent of all crime, they should make up 40 percent of all stops – to match their representation in the local population.” Ridiculous. Scheindlin now wants federal oversight of the NYPD. The upshot of her decision will leave police spending more time checking boxes than fighting crime. When felonies surge, don’t be surprised that poor and minority neighborhoods – like New York’s 88th Precinct – fare the worst.

Al Jazeera America is nothing like Al Jazeera Arabic, right?

Al Jazeera America launched last week. The television channel features such broadcast luminaries as Soledad O’Brien, Joie Chen, Sheila MacVicar, John Seigenthaler, David Shuster and Ali Velshi. Paul Beban, a regional correspondent, told the Denver Post’s Joanne Ostrow that he “defuses suspicions about Al Jazeera America with ‘a little bit of humor and friendliness.’” For example, when asked whether he is required to wear a burqa, Beban replies: “You know what? They were out of 42 long.” Such drollery notwithstanding, “some of the viewing public is more than a little wary of the latest entry in the field,” Ostrow notes. Why do you suppose that might that be? Perhaps start with the fact that Al Jazeera America, like its well-established Arabiclanguage sister station, Al

Jazeera, is owned and lavishly funded by “the royal family of Qatar,” the politest way of describing the petroleum-rich emirate’s dynastic dictators – who also happen to be funders of Hamas, a U.S. government-designated terrorist group, and the Muslim Brotherhood. Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani had been the tiny nation’s ruling emir for a year when he founded Al Jazeera in 1996. Shibley Telhami, Anwar Sadat Professor for Peace and Development at the University of Maryland said, “Even as Qatar emerged as a key ally of the United Sates, Al Jazeera gave voice to Osama bin Laden ...” MacArthur Fellowshipwinning professor Fouad Ajami came to the same conclusion in an appraisal of Al Jazeera for The New York Times. The network, Ajami wrote, “is not subtle television.” Among the examples


SCRIPPS HOWARD he cited: a documentary that presented Che Guevara as a “romantic, doomed hero.” The point, he said, was to evoke a similar view of Osama bin Laden, “the Islamic rebel.” For years, Al Jazeera has featured Sheikh Yousuf Al Qaradawi, star of the hit show “Sharia and Life.” Qaradawi has praised Imad Mugniyah, the terrorist mastermind behind the 1983 suicide bombings in Beirut, in which 241 U.S. Marines and other service personnel were killed. A few years back he issued a fatwa saying that the “abduction and killing of Americans in Iraq is a (religious) obligation.” Qaradawi favors the “spread of Islam until it

conquers the entire world ... (marking) the beginning of the return of the Islamic Caliphate.” Al Jazeera America’s reporters, producers and publicists will protest that their operation is separate from Al Jazeera Arabic. But are they? The two Al Jazeeras have the same owners who also provide the funding. I’m not suggesting Al Jazeera America will be an echo of Al Jazeera. I am suggesting it will have a mission, drive specific messages and observe certain prohibitions. Soledad, Joie, Sheila, John, David, Ali: I’m sure you’ve heard the rumors that Qatar is financing al-Qaida groups in Syria. What would your

employers say if you proposed to investigate? And how about the treatment of foreign workers in Qatar? Are you not curious to know if reporting on that situation would be considered out of bounds? I suspect Al Jazeera America will be subtle television. Christopher Harper, a longtime print and broadcast journalist, now a professor at Temple University, spent many long hours watching AJAM’s first week of broadcasts – widely advertised in other media, e.g.: “Support for NPR comes from Al Jazeera America.” He found the coverage had “an antiAmerican undercurrent.” For example, there was a story on the force-feeding of hunger strikers at a California prison and one about “Bangladeshi workers in allegedly substandard conditions making pants for Old Navy, which again allegedly ended up in the United

States.” (And, if Old Navy’s executives in the U.S. had said: “But our Bangladeshi division is separate from our division in the U.S.!” would AJAM’s reporters have bought it?) AJAM was available last week in about 48 million households via Comcast, Verizon, FiOS, DirecTV and Dish Network. AJAM’s executives are not satisfied. Last week, their attorneys filed a lawsuit to compel AT&T to carry the network, in order to “enforce Al Jazeera America’s rights.” A media operation owned by a foreign dictator now has the “right” to be in your living room? Stay tuned. Better yet: Change the channel. Clifford D. May is president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Email him at cliff@defenddemocracy. org.

offender said during an interview about his office taking a proactive stance to combat sex crimes and keep children safe. Christesen not only has his staff track the offenders and occasionally visit their homes to make sure no laws are being broken, he also works with the New Mexico Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, or ICAC. The task force cooperates with 64 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to periodically set up operations in communities that track the activities of suspected child predators on the Internet. The groups then attempt to capture both child sexual predators and child pornographers that use the Internet to solicit and harm children. San Juan County Sheriff ’s Deputy Jimmy Dearing specializes in this type of work and has received training in Internet and computer-re-

lated crimes since 2005. A former Farmington Police detective, Dearing joined the sheriff ’s office in March and has fit right in to Christesen’s plans to fight child sex crimes in San Juan County. He is trained to search computer hard drives, cell phones, and even thumb drives for evidence related to sexual exploitation crimes. He also has worked undercover to find people involved in the online solicitation of children and the trading and sharing of child pornography. “I am trained to tear about in a person’s computer and find their dirty little secrets,” he said. Through Dearing’s work and with the cooperation of ICAC, an alleged predator was caught attempting to solicit a minor child on Aug. 20 and 21 in San Juan County. The suspect is 56-yearold Mark Preller, of Mora

County. He was in the county attending the San Juan County Criminal Justice Training Academy to be licensed as a full-fledged Mora County Deputy Sheriff. The operation began Aug. 20, when members of the sheriff ’s special enforcement team posed as a child on various websites. Preller reportedly responded to a message he believed was from a female child. He allegedly used the Internet and a cell phone in order to coerce and entice the child to engage in sexual activity. Preller even showed up at a meeting place and he drove there in his Mora County Police cruiser. He was arrested without incident on Aug. 22 at the Criminal Justice Training Academy. “This was an opportunity to go fishing and we caught something,” Christesen said. “Every one of these investigations is driven by the sus-

pect. We at the sheriff ’s office truly believe that going down this road is so important.” That is why Christesen was pleased to hire Dearing, when the former detective was looking for a change. The sheriff ’s office gave Dearing an opportunity to dig deeper into his professional training to combat Internet crimes with regards to children. It is an area of crime that has become more prevalent with society’s dependence on technology. “Technology not only makes it easier for (predators) to obtain, but it also makes it easier for someone who wants to exploit a child to find that child,” Dearing said, adding that is why the authorities work together on these “proactive” investigations to locate potential predators and suspects. Dearing also has an opportunity to visit the homes of registered sex offenders and those who are on pro-

bation and parole to make sure they are not participating in criminal activity. He and Deputy Robert Tallman go out in a sheriff ’s vehicle that has “Sex Offender Unit” painted on both sides of it in “big, bright letters.” Christesen painted the vehicle because, he “wants everyone to know this is a sex offender and he lives here,” the sheriff said. The sex offender unit is tasked with visiting the county’s 322 registered offenders. Of those, 182 are listed as active, 31 are active but their names are not published on the sex offender website, 12 are serving time in the San Juan County Detention Center, three are in federal prison, 29 are in state prison and 60 are “dual registered,” which means they are registered with the feds and the county and they live on the Navajo Reservation. “We spend an enormous amount of time dealing with

those people and the effects of their criminal activity,” Christesen said. While at the homes, the two deputies ask if they can search a residence, and if they receive permission Dearing can go through a computer and determine if there is illegal activity. In the case of Preller, he just entered the system when he was arrested Aug. 22, just three weeks shy of graduating Sept. 13 from the Criminal Justice Academy. It is believed he had been working as a deputy prior to attending the training, which began April 1. He was charged with two counts of criminal solicitation of a child under the age of 1, and by using an electronic communication device. These are third-degree felonies. He was being held in the San Juan County Detention Center on a $50,000 cash-only bond, and the sheriff said the investigation into Preller will continue.

The Sages and Scientists Symposium is a forum for innovative leaders to discuss science, spirituality, consciousness, well-being, and humanity’s progress towards a more peaceful society. It was live-streamed on the Internet for the global community to tune in and listen to the

speeches. Including Steiner, other speakers at the Symposium included Arianna Huffington with the Huffington Post, Invisible Children CEO Ben Keesey, and Chairman and CEO of the Special Olympics Timothy Shriver. “To see the caliber of speakers and who they are – neurologists and presidents of companies – to not only be in the same building with them, but to speak with them is amazing,” said Sheila Mobley, Steiner’s family friend. Steiner’s speech was about “living beyond your labels” and being kind to others. “I hold several different labels,

whether it be a social worker, high school dropout, or being somewhat of an introvert, but living beyond that, my main label is being a kind person, whether it’s the shoes I paint or the conversations I have with these families.” The message’s purpose was to inspire people to get involved in community fundraising events, start their own nonprofit organizations, “pay for the person’s coffee behind me or smile to the person in a wheel chair,” Steiner explained. “The message I was delivering was important to get across to these people because they were there to hear me.”

Mobley said Steiner’s speech reflected the type of person she is. “I think it told everyone who she was. She doesn’t need the limelight or the recognition. She will back out of the limelight if it is for publicity. I think she is amazing.” As nervous as she was, Steiner said the entire experience was “empowering.” “I walked out on that stage and said to myself ‘I have a story to tell and I’m here to tell it.’ This is my life,” she said, adding she is devoting her life to the cause. In the future, Steiner said she would like to share her message at other speaking engagements. “I would if it meant getting my message out there and inspiring people. I would love to be able to share my story and our mission because there are so many components to it and I feel like it could touch people from all walks of life.” To learn more about Peach’s Neet Feet visit the website,

Peach’s Neet Feet This was Steiner’s first time to spread her message among a massive audience. “I thought this would be great because I’ve never done anything like that. Usually, I like to have everyone else in the spotlight, so this was new for me.” Along with being asked

to speak at the Sages and Scientists Symposium, Deepak Chopra also wanted to spread Steiner’s message by wearing Peach’s Neet Feet sneakers to various events including on The Oprah Winfrey Show. “He has brought in a lot of support for us,” Steiner explained.

Labor Day 25th Annual Totah Festival Friday, Aug. 30 Farmington Museum at Gateway Park 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. – Totah Festival poster unveiling Saturday, Aug. 31 Farmington Civic Center 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. – Art show

Totah Festival celebrates cultural diversity, heritage LAUREN DUFF Tri-City Tribune American Indian culture will fill the Farmington Civic Center during the 25th annual Totah Festival, which showcases artwork, Navajo rugs, and powwow dancing. The festival begins on Saturday, Aug. 31, at 10 a.m. and runs until Sunday, Sept. 1. It is a tradition that enables the community to witness the beauties of the American Indian culture. Totah Board Member George Francis encourages the public to attend this year’s Totah Festival because they can “educate themselves and understand another culture. We have many different cultures, and if we can blend them and understand them then we will have harmony within the community.” But before the festival begins this Labor Day Weekend, the public is invited to the Totah Festival poster unveiling at 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 30, at the Farmington Museum at Gateway Park. Artist Roy Kady from Goat Springs, Ariz., was chosen to display his artwork in this year’s poster. His artwork, a photograph of an intricately woven rug, is titled “Looking Towards the Carrizo.” The rug itself, to be sold at the Festival, was inspired by his hometown of Goat Springs, a town on the outskirts of Teec Nos Pos, Ariz. In his artwork, vibrant colored dyes form visuals that represent his childhood experiences. “This is a little bit of my personal experience as a young individual

when I was growing up,” Kady, who has been weaving since he was 9 years old, explained. The artwork represents

various landscapes. The bottom of the rug represents San Juan River and in front of the river are symbols called “Whirling Logs,”

which refer to the river’s motion. The next layer shows a sandy ground with medicinal plants scattered through-

out. “My mom is an herbalist and she taught me some of the plants that occupy the San Juan River.” Above that, mesas begin to appear as well as juniper trees. Then the top layer is green and lush with mountains towering over the scenery. In the middle stands a purple mountain named Carrizo. Symbols that move up and down the mountains represent the movement between the river and the mountains. Above is a sapphire blue sky with clouds. Kady grew up with a family of weavers and he remembers a photo of him as a child, sitting next to his mother as she is weaving. “These story-telling pieces are stories that are tied into it and inspired by your upbringing. It becomes a part of your palette and canvas,”

Kady said. The woven artwork took Kady more than 300 hours to complete. The dyes used to stain the wool were extracted from plants such as sage, indigo, and logwood bark imported from Africa. Kady considers his artwork to be more contemporary compared to traditional Navajo weaving. “From what I was exposed to, traditional designs refer to the ones that we use to weave when we used them for utilitarian purposes,” he explained, adding the traditional designs are usually associated with regional styles. Along with viewing Kady’s artwork during the poster unveiling, he will also be at the Totah Festival to answer questions about his artwork.

Jazz on the Hill

Concert Hall fundraising dinner to feature Joyce Lyons To help maintain the Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College as the quality performance venue it is today, the special “Jazz on the Hill Fundraising Dinner” will be staged – literally ON the Concert Hall stage – Saturday, Sept. 14. The evening includes a performance featuring jazz vocalist Joyce Lyons and the FLC Jazz Players. Proceeds from the event benefit the Russ and Bette Serzen Endowment Fund for Concert Hall Operations. Festivities begin at 6 p.m. Tickets – $100 per person – are limited and guests are asked to RSVP by Sept. 6. Early on in the life of the Community Concert Hall, founding director Gary Pennington readily admitted he knew nothing about jazz. Thankfully Russ Serzen did and volunteered his time to

offer up names of rising young jazz stars or even established greats he knew would appeal to Durango’s fickle music sensibilities. With Serzen’s help, the Jazz on the Hill series was created, and continues today as a legacy and tribute to the Community Concert Hall patron whose life was taken far too early. Serzen’s wife Bette established the memorial endowment fund following his passing.

“The Concert Hall continues to present jazz events each season,” said Concert Hall Director Charles Leslie, acknowledging Serzen’s integral role in keeping jazz in the Concert Hall line-up. “I believe we should always have jazz as part of our series as it is truly an American art form.” Joyce Lyons was one of Russ Serzen’s “favorites.” Once described as “what Cabaret is all about,” her

cabaret shows have proven legendary. Lyons’ rich alto has been compared to Dianne Reeves and Oleta Adams, as she’s said to dig into the lyrics and meaning of a song. Elaine Stritch, Bobby Short and Jonathan Schwartz have all highly praised Lyons’ talent. According to Tony Award-winning composer Stephen Flaherty, “Joyce Lyons makes each and every song truly her own. Her performances are both timeless and timely. Joyce is a true original.” Lyons performed at the Jazz on the Hill fundraiser

in 2011 to great acclaim. “Our goal is to raise $1 million for the endowment fund in order to create regular funding for the Concert Hall day-to-day operations,” said Leslie. “The fund will augment our other fundraising efforts. In the current economic climate, fundraising and sales are more important than they ever have been in the history of the Hall.” Tickets for the Jazz on the Hill Fundraising Dinner – $100 – are available online at – click on “Tickets” – or call 970.247.7657, or visit the Ticket Office inside

the Durango Welcome Center at 8th Street and Main Avenue in Downtown Durango. The Community Concert Hall is a not-for-profit, multi-use performance venue located on the campus of Fort Lewis College. Its ability to bring a diverse spectrum of shows to Southwest Colorado is made possible through a partnership with the college, a state-supported, independent institution of higher education, and through financial and inkind contributions from generous members of the community.

The University of New Mexico football team kicks off the new season Saturday at home against UT-San Antonio. Let’s recap last year. Head coach Bob Davie took over a program that won a combined three wins over a three-year period. Let’s be honest, he was a miracle worker to get four wins out of that crop of talent. But you are what your record says you are and the Lobos finished the year losing their last six games. This week Davie said the comparisons between last year and this year are night and day. “Last year we had 22 seniors and we kind of ‘piece-mealed’ it together and held it together with Band Aids, “ said Davie. “We grew a little bit during the season and we were competitive, but in a lot of ways this is like our first year. Hopefully, you’ll see this group of players as a foundation.” UNM will have eight first-time starters on defense and four on offense. “Will we be inexperienced? Will things happen out there that shouldn’t? Sure, but that’s part of building this thing. I’m excited to see

sure on his team in week one. “It’s one game; it’s one play. We’re going to be OK regardless of what happens. “It’s not life or death. Let’s go see what we have and keep going. We’ll be OK in the big picture.” Things are bigger in Texas Meanwhile, New Mexico State’s Doug Martin doesn’t mess around with

season openers. He is swimming in the deep water of the college football pool. The Aggies open the year in Austin against 15th ranked Texas. “It’s going to be a great test for us,” said Martin. “It will be a great environment and it’s an honor to go down there and compete.” “Scheme-wise, they do things on both sides of the ball that creates con-

fusion. What makes them difficult is their athleticism and team speed – and they recruit some of the best talent in the country.” The Aggies will have a new quarterback under center. Midway through fall camp, senior Andrew McDonald was named the team’s starter for the 2013 season. McDonald played in just one game for the Aggies in 2012, against Ohio, completing his only

pass for three yards. McDonald will have a guy who’s going streaking on his offensive line. Offensive left tackle Davonte Wallace returns for his senior season, anchoring the Aggies’ offensive line. He has started in 36 straight games for the Aggies on the offensive line. In 2012, Wallace earned second team All-WAC honors for the second straight season. He became the first of-

fensive lineman since the 2003 and 2004 season to earn back-to-back all-conference awards. Running backs Germi Morrison and Brandon Betancourt will carry the load for the Aggie running back corps in 2013. Last season the Aggies rushed for 1,171 yards as a team and 11 touchdowns. This season, Morrison and Betancourt look to boost those numbers.

play suffers because these groups can only move as fast as the group in front of them. When there are four players in front of a bunch of single players, then the single players end up waiting on every hole or playing through different groups. This becomes a nightmare for golf professionals and their staffs who endure the constant complaints about

this foursome or that foursome holding up the entire golf course. The solution? Pairing groups up to form foursomes. When a group of two is paired up with two other single players to make a group of four, pace of play becomes a non-issue. Furthermore, players get to spend a few hours getting to know each other and

forming – wait for it – relationships. We tell our participants that once they get over the uncomfortable feeling of introducing themselves to a new person, the opportunities are endless. That new person might become your best friend, a business partner or lifelong golfing partner. The worst outcome would be that you meet a new per-

son, don’t get along and never see that individual again. So if you don’t introduce yourself or pair up with another group, you already have the worst outcome, and essentially have eliminated the endless possibilities that building relationships would offer. I mean, you already share something in common – a love of the game of golf. The question then be-

comes: Why wouldn’t you at least try? Using the golf course as a testing ground for meeting new people can also give you the confidence to use those skills in the “real world.” So for the sake of the slow play problem on golf courses everywhere, pair up, introduce yourself and enjoy the lifelong friendship you may have just created.

value, especially at the quarterback position, and whether your league awards PPR, Points Per Reception. This changes the value of running backs in particular and adds value to your wide receivers. Defensive settings are important too. If your league awards big points for sacks, turnovers and points against, it may be smart to pick a top defense earlier than usual. If the point value seems low, then it doesn’t really matter and a DST can be picked late, like kickers. Rule No. 2 – Attempt to Set Trends, Not Follow Them: In every draft a run begins. Usually it begins with running backs in the early rounds, but there will be draft runs on defenses and tight ends especially. If there is a tight end you really want, go get them before a second back or receiver and start the run instead of settling. Rule No. 3 – Know Your Flex: If your league has a flex position, which are usually WR/RB make sure you understand your settings. A wide receiver may be more valuable in a PPR league than a third back. If you can use a QB and

the scoring is decent, a quarterback may be the way to go. Rule No. 4 – Draft a Kicker Last: In a 12-team league there is most likely going to be only 12 kickers drafted. The difference between the No. 1 kicker and the No. 12 kicker last year was 30 points, less than two points a game. Kickers are a crapshoot, so go with one that is on a team that scores a lot of points. The difference in tight ends, in comparison, was over 80 points PPR, five points per week average. Rule No. 5 – Avoid Loyalty: Pick the best player for your team, not players from your favorite team. While it is nice to have somebody from your own team to root for, it is not always smart to pick a player solely on loyalty. I’m a lifelong Chiefs fan. That would definitely not have worked out last year, but the temptation is always there. Here are this year’s best gambles in deep leagues, and players to avoid in all leagues …. Quarterbacks to Gamble On

Alex Smith, Kansas City – Andy Reid even made Kevin Kolb look good. Carson Palmer, Arizona – New coach Bruce Arinas did wonders with Andrew Luck last year and likes to throw deep. Having Larry Fitzgerald doesn’t hurt. Brandon Weeden, Cleveland –A big gamble, granted, but Norv Turner has a reputation for making the quarterback much better his first year as offensive coordinator. Three to Avoid Mark Sanchez, New York Jets – Will most likely not survive the whole season. Christian Ponder, Minnesota – Handing it off to Adrian Peterson does not give you points Whoever Quarterbacks the Jacksonville Jaguars. Running Backs to Gamble On DeAngelo Williams, Carolina – With Jonathon Stewart out at least six weeks, Williams will have to carry the load. Reggie Bush, Detroit – In PPR leagues Bush could throw up big numbers. Giovani Bernard, Cincinnati – The Bengals rookie has more upside than Ben-

Jarvus Green-Ellis. Three to Avoid All teams that split time at running back. Pierre Thomas, New Orleans – Mark Ingram gets the carries and Darren Sproles the catches. Ahmad Bradshaw, Indianapolis – The Colts aren’t the Giants and the backfield is crowded with Vick Ballard and Donald Brown. Wide Receivers to Gamble On TY Hilton, Indianapolis – Reggie Wayne is getting up there and the Colts will throw it. Kenbrell Thompkins, New England – The Patriots No. 2 receiver should get plenty of looks with the depleted New England receiving corps. Greg Little, Cleveland – The Browns offense should be improved with Turner calling the shots, which means more opportunity for Little. Three to Avoid Santonio Holmes, New York Jets – May not play at all this season, and if he does, will walk into quarterback nightmare. James Jones, Green Bay – Already been passed by

Randall Cobb. Jermichael Finley looks to be a bigger factor and the Packers will try to run more. Cecil Shorts, Jacksonville – Still best option, but will have more attention to work through. Tight Ends to Gamble On Jared Cook, St. Louis – No running game in St. Louis should make Cook a valuable target. Rob Housler, Arizona – Cardinals will throw more this season and should help Housler, with Fitzgerald drawing attention. Jeff Cumberland, New York Jets – Replaces Dustin Keller, and who else can they throw to? Three to Avoid Dwayne Allen, Indianapolis – A healthy Coby Fleener should take away targets. Brent Celek, Philadelphia – Who knows what is going to happen with Chip Kelly’s new offense. Jacob Tamme, Denver – Not enough footballs to go around. Next week we’ll look at defenses and individual defensive players, IDP Good luck with your draft!!

Yost the United States, tee times are booked with the hope that groups of less than 4 players will not have to bear the burden of being paired up with another single player or twosome. This presents a problem in a myriad of areas, the first and most important being that when a golf course is filled with groups of 1, 2 or 3 players, the pace of

geek always the possibility that the likes of Percy Harvin may return just in time for the playoff run. So draft strategy must take a few risks in picking someone a bit early or waiting for your next pick to drop. In our first Fantasy Geek this season we’ll take a look at some players to consider after the obvious choices of premier running backs and high value quarterbacks. Make sure you check league settings. Two quarterback leagues put more of a premium on the passers, and so do yardage settings. For example, if your league gives a point for every 15 yards passing instead of 25 yards, quarterbacks will be the highest scorers and would be drafted earlier than in a standard scoring league. After all, there are more 300-yard passers than 200-yard rushers, which would each net 20 points without touchdowns. Since everyone has advice on the early picks, here is some general drafting advice, and players at each position to watch and avoid this season. Rule No. 1 – Know Your Settings: Check each point

Safe playtime Toys you should avoid with senior dogs Your senior dog may not be as playful as he was when he was younger, but chances are he still relishes activities that stimulate his mind and body. Not only does he enjoy them, he needs them to keep mentally and physically fit. It’s often too easy to assume an older dog is satisfied with a day of leisure, but that’s not fair to your dog. He just may be waiting for you to entice him to play. Know your dog’s limits Unfortunately, many senior dogs want to play far beyond their physical capabilities. The dog who is a Frisbee fiend may still want to leap and spin to catch a flying disc, but that sort of wild gymnastics is not a good idea for older dogs. Seniors are more likely to have arthritis and to take more time recovering from injuries. Tug games, too, may be too hard on your older dog’s neck and teeth. If your once tug-crazy dog stops tugging as soon as he starts, it may be a sign of dental problems that you should have your veterinarian check.

Hoerner pair of games to reach the finals before losing to Aztec 5-0. The Piedra Vista women’s soccer team went 3-1 over the week, losing their opening game of the Aztec tournament to Deming before knocking off Santa Fe Indian School and Miyamura, and then took down the Patriots again on Tuesday. Farmington won at Los Alamos. On the boy’s side, Aztec went 1-1 this week with a win over Gallup and a loss to Grants. Piedra Vista did

Your dog doesn’t necessarily know why a certain activity hurts, so it’s up to you to make sure his teeth (and body) are up for a game of tug – or any other activity you think he’d enjoy. Many senior dogs simply can’t resist some of the games they played when younger, so it’s your job to not entice them with games that are potentially too strenuous. Choose the best possible toys As for what toys are best, most dogs get a little less destructive with their toys as they age, but some dogs never learn to take care of their toys. So the same caveats apply with seniors as with younger dogs: • The toy should not have parts that can be pulled off and inhaled or swallowed. • The toy should not have any sharp parts and should not be able to be chewed into sharp parts.

• Avoid linear soft objects such as strings, ribbons, pantyhose, socks and rubber bands that can be swallowed. Such toys, if ingested, tend to travel lengthwise along the intestines. They can cause the intestine to scrunch up accordion-style, even turning on itself just like a sock. This is a life-threatening medical condition that usually requires surgery to correct. • Use rawhides or vegetable chewies with caution and only under supervision. If your dog can swallow a big hunk of it, it’s probably not really safe. • Avoid hard chewing items. Bones and hooves are responsible for many cracked teeth, particularly slab fractures of the large carnassial teeth – the very large premolars near the back of the mouth. In a slab fracture, a sheet of the tooth’s crown breaks off, sometimes exposing the pulp of the tooth

and requiring veterinary attention. • The toy should not be small enough to be inhaled or swallowed. Overly small balls are especially dangerous, as they can lodge in the trachea and cannot even be dislodged by hand. Dogs have asphyxiated in the front of their owners from lodged balls. • If your dog is obsessed with dissecting squeak toys to get the squeak, only let him have such toys when you can supervise him. • Avoid children’s toys – dogs are not children. • Avoid any toys stuffed with beads or beans. • Many modern toys that emit animal sounds or move on their own contain batteries. Never leave a dog alone with such toys, as the dog could chew the battery out of the toy and swallow it. • Never give your dog a container in which the dog’s head could become lodged. Dog’s cannot pull these containers off and have suffocated when they became stuck. • If you give your dog a

Miguel Cabrera is putting together another fantastic year and is threatening the heralded Triple Crown. Last year Cabrera was the first player since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967 to win the Triple Crown. In 1967, Yastrzemski’s numbers were great. He hit .326 with 44 HRs and

stick, be sure it doesn’t have sharp ends and that it is neither too short nor too long to be jabbed into the ground should the dog hold it by one end – as though he were drinking out of a straw. A running dog carrying a stick like this can ram the far end of the stick into the ground, impaling the end in his mouth up into his palate or throat. • Long ropelike or tug toys that could possibly be wrapped around a dog’s neck should not be left with multiple dogs that could possibly wrap each other up in play. • Toys thrown to dogs to catch should not be hard or heavy, as they can fracture the front teeth. • Do not use rocks as toys. • Tug toys are fine for most dogs but should be avoided with dogs that have neck or back problems, especially those with herniated disks. • If your dog always pulls the stuffing out of toys, especially if he eats it, gut the toy for him and let him play with the skin. • Do not get a rubber toy that has a small hole in only one end. Some dogs have

gotten their tongues into the hole, creating a vacuum so that the tongue becomes stuck. If you have such a ball, drill a hole in the other end so a vacuum can’t form. • The ever-popular tennis ball can even be a bad choice, not only for dogs large enough for the ball to become lodged in their trachea, but because the fuzz on the ball’s surface is abrasive to teeth. Tennis ball addicts may develop worn teeth from catching and chewing on tennis balls. At normal levels of play, however, the balls should not be damaging. Many older dogs would rather just interact with you than with a toy. Hunt and find games, in which the dog seeks out a toy you’ve hidden in the house or yard by following your scent trail, are great games that stimulate the mind yet don’t ask much of the body. Depending on the dog, just spending time together on walks around the block, in the yard gardening or on rides in the car can satisfy much of the older dog’s need for stimulation.

121 RBIs. In comparison, Cabrera’s numbers in 2012 were right with Yastrzemski’s, hitting .330 with 44 HRs and 139 RBIs What Cabrera has done so far this season is even more impressive. After 124 games Cabrera is hitting .357 with 43 HRs and 130 RBIs. Barring injury, he will surpass all the numbers that won him the Triple Crown last season. His average and RBI total puts him at the top in the American League, trailing the Orioles’ Chris Davis in home runs by only three. Should Cabrera catch Davis and win the Triple Crown, it may be the most impressive individual accomplishment in the history of team sports. Cabrera would

be the first Triple Crown winner ever, not in the modern era, not since the socalled “live ball era,” not since the inception of the designated hitter – EVER, as in never before to win back-to-back Triple Crowns. So why isn’t the casual sports fan familiar with Cabrera? Where is Cabrera’s Gatorade commercial? How is it a guy who plays in Detroit is not trying to sell you a car? Fact of the matter is Cabrera is not flashy or in trouble so he doesn’t go out of his way to make anyone really take notice. Culturally, there are few Hispanic commercial endorsements in national campaigns. And of course there are steroids. Every accomplishment in Major League Baseball now has the added burden of being questioned as legitimate or performance enhanced. The era of Hispanic baseball superstars is upon us, from Albert Pujols to Miguel Cabrera to the up and coming Yasiel Puig. It is time to embrace the talent, and I for one will be hoping to witness a historic season as the undrafted Miguel Cabrera chases an illustrious feat.

Putting down roots

Fall is the best time to plant trees in your yard This summer was a hot one! It seemed at times to be unbearable, chasing people inside away from outdoor activities. One would have to wait until the sun went down just to spend time in the yard. If struggling through another hot summer seems unbearable, now is the time to do something about it. Planting trees not only provides shade, it produces oxygen, removes toxins from the air, blocks unsightly views, obstructs noise pollution and adds color and texture to the yard. Fall is the best time to plant most things, but particularly trees. Newly transplanted trees have two cool growing seasons to establish roots and absorb nutrients in preparation for hot challenging times. When soil temperatures drop to around 50 degrees, top growth slows and root growth increases. Increased root growth generates quicker plant establishment, and that in turn creates greater success. Another advantage to planting trees this time of

ADVICE YOU CAN GROW WITH Donnie Pigford year is that the sun is still in relative location to summer. This allows proper placement of trees to provide shade in crucial areas of the yard. Deciduous trees shade and cool in the summer then lose their leaves, allowing the sun to penetrate and warm in the winter. This is a win, win situation in reference to utility savings in both summer and winter. Picking the right time to plant is only half the battle. Proper planting technique is even more important. Understanding your specific soil conditions, digging the proper hole and amending the soil is the absolute key to success. When it comes to planting a tree, we recommend digging the hole twice as wide and half again as deep as the root ball of the tree. Mix a good organic planting mix

shooting have any information about the shooting. “We haven’t gotten anything yet,” she said. The incident was at 9:12 p.m. Aug. 14, and the Farmington Scorpion Football team was on the field practicing. A blue passenger car drove south on Dustin Avenue and someone inside of the car fired several rounds in the direction of the stadium. “The car was described by witnesses as being a light blue Dodge Stratus or Chrysler Sebring,” Tracy said. Police have asked for assistance from the Farmington

50/50 with the native soil removed from the hole. It is important not to over-amend the soil, as creating a transition to the native soil is very important. Place a layer of amended soil in the bottom of the hole, so that the top of the root ball is approximately one inch below ground level. Fill the hole halfway with water, and then start adding soil around the root ball. With every few shovels of soil, work around the roots to make sure no air pocket gets trapped under or around the root ball. Once the hole has been filled in, build a

basin around the drip line to hold water. Water the tree again thoroughly, as sometimes the native soils will tend to wick water away from the newly planted tree. Finally, use a root stimulator once a week for at least three weeks, to promote healthy root growth and eliminate any transplant shock. When it comes to selecting a tree for your yard, there are numerous characteristics to consider. Height, width, density of the canopy, soil

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Farmington Police Department at 505.327.7701, or Crime Stoppers at 505.334.8477.

and water needs and color all matter when selecting the perfect tree. Below is a list a few trees that I favor for their fall color. Red Maples: This family of trees has grown considerably over the past few years. There are red fall leafed maples in almost every size range now. When these maples turn red in the fall they are truly impressive. Red Oak: This strong, durable tree is gorgeous! From its bark to its leaf,

there is something special about this tree. When it’s beautiful lobed leaves change in color from green to reds, greens and purples, it is quite the show. Cottonless Cottonwoods: This is the tree that best represents the Southwest. The golden leaves of this Poplar trace many of the river valleys throughout New Mexico. Fast growing and adaptable to most soil conditions makes this tree extremely popular.

Book sale

Library Foundation’s next book sale Sept. 7 through Sept. 11 The Farmington Public Library Foundation has scheduled their next fundraising book sale at the Farmington Public Library for Sept. 7 through Sept. 11. The sale will be held in the multipurpose room of the library and will be open to the public. Books will be available for purchase starting from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7, and continuing from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8., and from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday, Sept. 9. through Wednesday, Sept. 11, or while inventory lasts. The annual Farmington Public Library Foundation book sale is a highly attended event, and shoppers are encouraged to come early for the best selection. While many of the books are collected through public donations, there will also be books for sale that have previously been a part of the library’s own collection. There will be several thousand books available for

purchase at this year’s sale, with a wide variety of titles. These books have been stored since the last book sale and the library foundation is asking for volunteers to assist in unpacking these books prior to the book sale. For more information about the requirements asked of volunteers, please call 505.599.1270.

Proceeds from the book sale will benefit the Library Foundation, which provides funding for many of the public programs held by the Farmington Public Library, including the annual summer reading program and the Prime Time Family Literacy program. “This annual tradition funds many of the pro-

grams we support throughout the year,” said Margo Allee, president of the Farmington Public Library Foundation. “We’re encouraging everyone in the Four Corners to support the literacy programs at the Farmington Public Library by attending the book sale.” For more information on the Farmington Public

Library book sale, and to volunteer to unpack books, please call 505.599.1270, or log on to the events calendar at If you

would like to receive updates during the book sale, “like” the Farmington Public Library on Facebook, or follow the library on Twitter @FarmPubLib.

National Public Lands Day

BLM seeks volunteers to clean up the Glade The Bureau of Land Management, or BLM, is seeking volunteers for a trash cleanup of the BLM Glade Run Recreation Area on the morning of Saturday, Sept. 28, to celebrate

Honored for service

Two Bloomfield library employees retire LAUREN DUFF Tri-City Tribune Two women who recently retired from the Bloomfield Public Library Board were recognized at an Aug. 26 Bloomfield City Council regular meeting. Patty Bowers and Flossie Jordan were the two longest serving members on the board, with Bowers serving 18 years and Jordan serving nine years. “Any of us who went to Mesa Alta Junior High can remember Mrs. Bowers as our school librarian,” said Tim Conyers, library board president. “(Bowers) used that experience and knowledge from that position to be instrumental in developing and establishing our city library.” The Bloomfield Public Library was established in 1991.

then from 2008 to 2013. Jordan also was recognized for her years of dedication in making the public library more accessible and family-friendly. “Flossie has always been an advocate for the city of Bloomfield. She has always advocated for the library,” Conyers explained. Jordan served on the board from 2002 to 2009 and then from 2011-2013. “The first job I ever had was working for Patty Bowers at the junior high library and we stayed friends since that time.

But we love you and we are grateful for your help and your time.” Mayor Scott Eckstein echoed that, saying, “They both did an incredible job – and you will definitely be missed.”

“Back in the Saddle Again”



Friday, August 30, 2013 TRI-CITYTRIBUNE

So, Nosey Nellie’s sister, Mystic Marianne, was in town last weekend for a short visit. In addition to the usual adult beverages, not-exactly-fine dining, and retail therapy, NN and MM made a visit to Studio 116 in Historic Downtown Farmington. One of NN’s BFF’s, Karen Ellsbury, is like a noted, famous and talented artist and MM has taken up painting as another form of therapy. MM’s husband, Gorgeous George, would like MM to stay out of the mall, antique stores and Target, so suggested she find another form of “therapy” to keep her busy when she’s not working. What Gorgeous George did not factor into that suggestion was that there are ’nother stores where MM can do almost as much financial damage as the mall, the antique store and Target, but MM


has decided that sometimes, with GG, ignorance is bliss – until she gets busted. Whatever. So, NN arranged for MM and herself to have painting lessons with Karen in her lovely and wonderful and ever-socute little gallery. Because Karen and NN worked together in another life and always had “green chile cheeseburger and French fries” lunches, NN took lunch so they would all be fortified for the great art NN was sure was going to be created. Karen had lovely clean canvases for MM and NN, and one for herownself, which NN managed to “mark” with the ketchup from her French fries and the cheese from her burger. Karen was lovely about it, though, and suggested NN make the ketchup and cheese “markings” part of her work of art. NN loved it – partly on accounta NN most often has food around her and, almost always, that food is greasy or cheesy or colorful, which NN thinks will add

to the worth of her art when she begins to sell it. “Food for the Soul” is what NN is thinking about calling her food-stained art work, and is certain people who enjoy and embrace fast food the way NN does will discover the joy in the grease and the cheese and the ketchup. Just sayin’. ... Karen gave MM and NN paint and brushes and showed them how to create a background for their work. Then she showed them how to blend and highlight. MM was serious about her work, and NN tried to be. But when Karen showed them how to “drip,” NN knew she’d found her “medium.” NN was able to take her grease stains, cheese globs and ketchup dribbles and, with the beauty of “dripping,” make a work of art that Andy Warhol would be proud of. It was so colorful and so creative that Karen and MM were speechless. When Karen got her first look at NN’s finished product, she gasped and ran to

the ladies room. NN knows Karen didn’t want MM to know that she thought NN’s work was so outstanding and beautiful it made her cry, and that’s why she spent 30 minutes in the ladies room. Karen is like that, ya know. She gets emotional when she discovers a hidden talent in her friends and students, and she was really, really emotional with NN’s talent. She choked up every time she looked at that incredible canvas and retreated to the ladies room several times to cry, although it did sound a little like retching from the outside of the ladies room. Whatever. Not that MM’s work wasn’t lovely, because it was. MM has a talent for art and she was careful with her highlighting and her shadowing and her blending. Her painting was an expression of her mystical world and she painted with her soul. NN, on the other hand, painted with wild abandon and with every paint color Karen had on hand. NN had so much fun she’s decided to set up a studio in her casita, where she can drip paint, throw paint, use a squirt gun and squirt paint, a slingshot to spurt paint and a toilet bowl brush to blend. NN has also decided to paint nudes, if she can find ’em. Karen said painting nudes is difficult and NN might want to wait until she can paint within the lines, but NN thinks painting nudes would be fun and exciting and add to the depth of her work. NN will be taking applications for nudies soon, so watch the classified section of the TriCity Tribune to see when auditions will be held. NN is thinking prob’ly painting male nudes will be easier, although Karen suggested if NN is heck-bent on painting nudes, she start with those plastic nudie thingies they use for manikins in department stores, which she said are easier to paint. She also

said real nudies aren’t crazy about having paint all over ’em, and that if it’s raining, all of NN’s great work will be washed away. NN suggested she might use a waterproof paint on her nudies and shellack ’em before she lets ’em leave. Karen must have loved that idea, too, on accounta she made a mad dash to the ladies room, where she stayed forever. Karen is just astounded at NN’s creativity and talent, NN knows. It’s a gift. Anyway, MM loved her art lesson and took the one remaining credit card Gorgeous George let her keep (Who’da thought he’d get cranky when he discovered MM had 53 different credit cards, most of which were maxed out on their credit limit?) although, GG didn’t really let MM “keep” that card, it was just one that he didn’t find on accounta it had just come in the mail to the special mail box that MM “uses” for her credit card bills, and MM and NN spent a gazillion hours in Hobby Lobby and online, ordering painting supplies MM is going to need for the studio she intends to create out of Gorgeous George’s closet. MM would create a studio out of one of her six closets, but they’re all full of the fruits of her retail therapy and GG’s closet has just a few pairs of jeans and a coupla work shirts that will fit just fine in the broom closet. Whatever. So, while Karen is recovering from the lessons she gave MM and NN, MM has gone home to create her own studio and NN is buying all the waterproof paint and shellack she can find for her nudies, people had birthdays and did fun stuff. Celebrating birthdays this week were Bill Van Huss (who, along with his lovely wife, Louise, is wonderful and good and kind), Gloria McFall (who NN knew in another life and who is the bomb), Patricia

Blackwater, GloJean Todacheene (who is an outstanding community leader), Chris Jones (who knows a thing or two about golf ), Linda Ferrell, Linda Rodgers and Kathy McKim. NN’s buddy and pal Judge John Dean also celebrated a birthday by spending it with his lovely wife, Gayle. Da Judge and Da Beautiful Gayle also watched talented son Kellen perform with his band, Those Devils, last weekend at the Blues Traveler concert at Aztec Speedway (Way to go, Jason Sandel, for bringing them here!). Julia Foley (one of NN’s favs) enjoyed a Girls Night Out with Kristi Phillips, Flossie Jordan, Wendi Luce, Pattie O’Brien and Anne Hurlbut; Alicia McCuller and her wonderful mom, Anna Riley, went to the Keith Urban concert (NN is soooo jealous!), Micha and Allen Elmore, along with their totally cute boys, Michale and Jude, were spotted shopping last weekend; Cherry Church (who is wonderful and amazing) is enjoying life; Amy Dickson was lovin’ her job this week; Adam Kinney called NN on the birthday of NN’s mother, which made NN cry and be ever so thankful for Adam’s lovely thoughtfulness; Samantha Covert lost her grandfather this week and thoughts and prayers are with her; and Marianne Harmon, Brian Chapman, Judy Hale, Flo Trujillo, and Vic Sutton brightened NN’s days this week. NN is looking forward to a long weekend, and is hoping Mojito, the Devil Kitten, and Oliver, The Cat Who Won’t Stop Talking, will have forgiven her for bringing in a guest this past week, which totally disrupted their lives and their routines, and for which NN is soooo paying for in extra cat hair all over the casita and all of her lingerie drawers being emptied and hauled into the living room by the DK. Whatever.

Livestock sale up 10 percent Great entertainment and great people make for a successful fair More than 90,000 people had “Fun for Ewe and Me” at the 2013 San Juan County Fair. The usual unpredictable August weather didn’t keep people from packing the parking lot and the midway at McGee Park, taking in the animals, the concerts, the exhibits and the hard-to-resist fair food. The new ride at the carnival, Freak Out, had thrill seekers lined up to test their mettle. Country music star Pam Tillis drew thousands of fans to her concert. The “Queen of Denial” had the crowds rockin’ to her music and singing along as she sang the music of her famous father, Mel Tillis. The Bellamy Brothers also encouraged fans to sing along and dance

to the music as they offered up hit songs from their stellar careers. “The concerts were a huge draw to this year’s fair,” said Billy Huish, vice president of the San Juan County Fair Board, adding that some 8,000 people packed the outdoor pavilion for each concert. “We were lucky to get both Pam Tillis and the Bellamy Brothers this year – and that’s hard to do with so many county and state fairs and other venues wanting them as badly as we did.” If the concerts and other special events attract people to the fair, the Junior Livestock Sale is the highlight for the 4-H Club and FFA members who have animals in the sale.

TRI-CITYTRIBUNE Friday, August 30, 2013


“For me and for so many others, the livestock sale is what the county fair is all about,” said Fair Board President Ben Hazelwood. “Those kids work so hard all year, raising and working with their animals, and to see them in the sale ring, listening to the bidding – it really doesn’t get any

better than that.” Darrin Church, the board’s treasurer, said this year’s sale is up 10 percent, although add-ons won’t be tallied until after the Sept. 15 deadline. “We can never say enough about the buyers who come out every year to bid on the animals,” Church said. “I doubt there

is any other county or state fair that has the support of the business community and of the residents, that we have here in San Juan County. We appreciate all they do for the kids – because the fair is all about the kids.”

The “Two for Tuesday” offered at this year’s fair was a resounding success and more than 1,500 pounds of food were collected for the ECHO Food Bank. “This year’s fair was a great success – as it always

is,” Huish said. “We have the best county fair in the state because the people of San Juan County always come out to support the livestock sale and check out the exhibits, and to enjoy a fun, family atmosphere. And the kids who receive finan-

cial support from the sale and the add-ons always put that money to good use – for their education and to buy their animals for the next fair. Thanks to ‘ewe’ all for making this fair another great chapter in our fair book!”

Building confidence

Special Needs Rodeo filled with pure hearts and courage LAUREN DUFF Tri-City Tribune The Special Needs Rodeo at the San Juan County Fair helps the riders build up confidence and demonstrate their courage, which was apparent during the Aug. 7 show at the Memorial Coliseum at McGee Park. The rodeo was organized by Rein Dance Association, a non-profit organization in Flora Vista that fosters relationships between special needs individuals and horses. Cindy Iacovetto and Linda Harris founded the organization in 2001, but have helped with the Special Needs Rodeo for more than 20 years. “For me, this makes me realize my purpose,” Iacovetto explained. “I call the riders ‘pure hearts’ because

they are not tarnished by the world like the rest of us. When I hear them say ‘I love you’ to my horses, that is it for me.” There were 12 riders who participated in the rodeo. They were able to show the audience various rodeo tricks they learned during a summer camp at Rein Dance, titled Mane Event. “They come twice a week (during the summer). They begin in June and then the

rodeo is the end of their season,” Iacovetto explained. The riders who participated in the rodeo are Morrigan Harris, Patty Cater, Mariah Hurd, Kalem Platero, Felicia Cater, Randy Goebel, Jayden Parson, Liam Parson, Josh Harris, and Randy Nickerson. Felicia Cater, who will begin 5th grade next week, was crowned the 2013 Rein Dance Princess. Platero, 2, was crowned the 2013 AllRound Cowboy.

Some of the horse tricks they performed were weaving in and out of poles, dunking a basketball, and opening a mailbox. This was an opportunity

for the riders to demonstrate their abilities to work with horses despite their individual challenges. The obstacle course was designed to enhance their physical

dexterity and mentally stimulate each rider. Linda pointed out that each rider had to trust the horse handlers. “Randy was afraid on one of the horses but he overcame his fear to get out there tonight.” Iacovetto and Linda encourage individuals to participate in next year’s Mane Event program. “We don’t refuse any riders. We look at it as a challenge that we can accommodate,” Iacovetto said, adding that riders must be 2 years old or older. Rein Dance Association also offers outreach programs to schools and senior living facilities for educational therapy purposes. If anyone wishes to sponsor, volunteer, or participate in the Rein Dance Association, contact Iacovetto at 505.801.0373.

Fair favorite

Decorated outhouses race to raise money for 4-H Clubs

LAUREN DUFF Tri-City Tribune Children and adults dunked for “turds” and played ring toss with toilet seats during the annual

Outhouse Races at the San Juan County Fair on Aug. 5. The Outhouse Races are a crowd favorite, with more than 50 people turning out to watch the hilarious

races, even during the rainy evening. The various groups that competed included local 4-H Clubs, the Bloomfield Fire Department, and county fair royalty. As teammates were pushed in decorated outhouses through the course, they had to complete four obstacles: toilet paper croquet, putting together toilet parts, dunking for “turds” – Baby Ruth candy bars – and playing toilet seat ring toss. “The best thing is the dunking for ‘turds.’ It is a favorite crowd pleaser that seems to be the highlight. That is the obstacle we keep every year because people just love to watch

them do it with no hands,” said Jena Roberts, a fair volunteer who was in charge of the Outhouse Races. “I didn’t realize how many people were going to be here. This is the best turnout we have had.” The team with the ‘most speedy‘ overall time was Levi-Calico 4-H Club “Pee Ewes 1.” “We all do this to just earn money for our 4-H Club. We are out here to have fun and help and support the kids,” said Tay Cline with Levi-Calico 4H Club. The team that won the trophy for “Best in Show” was the Bloomfield Fire Department “Squat 51.” “This is our eighth year doing this and we have fun, but it is not exactly clean fun,” said Kevin Mauzy, Bloomfield Fire

lieutenant. The “Squat 51” outhouse is decked out with fire related items and a rubber chicken. There also is a seatbelt and fire detector inside the outhouse because it is important to remember “safety first,” Mauzy said. The outhouse shoots out confetti, smoke, and fire. “The tradition is to add a little something new every year,” Mauzy said

about their decorated outhouse. Other creative team names included “Roll’n Tyrd” and “Better than the Udders.” “We always seem to get more and more outhouses every year. They all were definitely decorated awesomely and they came up with great names. I love the names sometimes,” Roberts said.

Great entertainment

Music filled the air Friday and Saturday night at McGee Park DEBRA MAYEUX Tri-City Tribune The San Juan County Fair brought some highpowered entertainers to the community for this year’s fair. The entertainment offerings were sponsored by KTRA, and they catered to those who love traditional country and just some good time musical acts. Pam Tillis, daughter of country music legend Mel Tillis and member of the Grand Ole Opry, performed Friday, Aug. 9, to a standing-room-only crowd in the pavilion. She sang old favorites as well as newly recorded songs, and Tillis even stopped a couple of

mandolin, autographed by Tillis. It was won by Sherry Kinderknecht. “I’ve never won anything in my life,” Kinderknecht said after receiving the

prize. The next night, The Bellamy Brothers took the stage and once again there was standing room only. This was in spite of the rain showers that poured over McGee Park on Saturday, Aug. 10, the last full day of the fair. The Bellamy Brothers were a highly anticipated act that did not disappoint the crowd of country music aficionados and fans. During the concert KTRA sponsored a guitar giveaway, and it was signed by the Bellamy Brothers. Kinderknecht won again, for the second time in her life, when her name was drawn as the winner of the Kevin O’Neill, of KTRA Radio, gives away a guitar signed by the Beguitar. lamy Brothers at the concert Saturday night.
