  • Us old farmers and ranchers never slow down, particularly when the “do you remember” topic comes up. Yes, this causes some of us to remember and record just one more story as we put pencil to paper.

    Sustainable Las Vegas will be holding their their Annual Sustainable Homes Tour (formerly Solar Homes Tour) on Saturday, Jan. 22. The goal for the tour is to show people real-life examples of utilizing solar energy, and “sustainability” more generally.  These examples range from very low- to higher-tech: drying clothes on clotheslines, growing plants, passive solar heating and cooling, active solar water heating, photovoltaic (solar electric) installations, rainwater catcheent, and water and energy efficiency.

  • The year started with two meetings. The first one on Tuesday, Jan. 4, was an organizational and community input meeting that was reported on in last week’s Optic besides electing officers and listening to public input they adopted the open meeting resolution which specified public notice requirements for meetings.

  • Over the long haul, January really isn’t one of our best months in these parts. A recent travel section of the Albuquerque Journal brought back found memories of a change-of-scene trip I took a few years ago with my new just-graduated from college grandson, Lem.
