NOB HILL--If you want to know how the campaigns are going, just look at the signs...the yard signs, that is. They give a pretty good idea of the different directions these two candidates are heading. I have not seen any signs for the third candidate, Richard Berry.
Richard Romero Flies the Red, White, & Blue
What can be said about the Romero yard signs? First of all, the red, white, & blue colors seem to reflect a… Continue

I’m a resident of Burque’s South Valley. I write about growing up brown, coming out queer, and living as true as I can which is kinda crooked. I write to re-member my family, hand-me-down shared rentals, window glass crumb-filled streets, dive bars, and other ignored people, places, and things. Also, I write to understand this new place that reminds me of home, San Francisco’s Mission District, and makes me feel like an outsider at the same… Continue

Special Olympics NM is looking for more enthusiastic thrill-seekers to go Over the Edge and rappel on Friday, Sept. 25.
This is the first annual event and several dozen folks have signed up already; however there is room for 80 on the ropes and we'd certainly like more.
You must commit to raising the minimum amount by Friday, Sept. 18. If you have a network, as I do, it shouldn't be too hard. Your friends, family and colleagues would rather see you do it than brave the… Continue

I viewed some Over the Edge
rappelling videos today from another city, and I'm not sure I should have:
One rappeller jumped far away from the side of the building as he descended; another one almost turned upside down. That really scared me.
(And the view 200 feet down to the street... !)
But the final segment showed a TV reporter going down smoothly. It gave me more courage.
It's a good thing I'm taking those free classes at Stone Age Climbing… Continue

The date and time of my Over the Edge rappel for Special Olympics NM have been confirmed:
Thursday, September 24, Media Day, 1:25 pm
Why on Media Day? As it happens, I actually am a member of the media because I host two shows on KUNM-FM.

I have exceeded my minimum fundraising target of $1,000 to participate in Special Olympics NM's "Over the Edge" fundraiser. As of today, the total is now over $1,400 -- and more folks still want to contribute.
I'm so gratified by the response; interested people can go to my personal page at www.firstgiving.com/Jane Blume

mayor marty, if you have the police scope out silver with a speed trap once in a while, you'll generate all kinds of revenue. lots of drivers are using the road as their personal expressway. i thought the purpose of the 18 mph speed limit and all the road signs painted on the asphalt was to get the bicyclists off central and give us a safer place to ride. it ain't working. please follow up with some enforcement before one of us gets hurt. or put on your helmet, roll up your sleeves, and ride… Continue

In the dream, I stood outside a small brick building, an old library. I was after one specific book. I entered the library and walked to where I expected to find the book, wondering if I would be allowed to check out a reference book. The interior of the library consisted of one small room with only a few low shelves clustered in the middle. There were only a few books and magazines scattered on the largely empty shelves. I decided to ask for help.
I walked over to a group of people,… Continue

September just ran up behind me and smacked me upside the head. It does that every year, what with its suddenly earlier sunsets and marginally cooler evenings. The heat still rises off the pavement and concrete long after nightfall, but the clouds bring cooler shade and the sun seems just a little less vindictive.
This year, like every other for the last few, has been radically different from the rest. This year finds me at a new job, with a new outlook and a fresh new take on life and… Continue

Not sure where I first saw this, but the roving Scavenger Dash -- which looks like a shorter, local & trivia-infused version of CBS' Amazing Race
-- is coming to our fair burg on November 7. Up to 300 teams of 2 people each will be accepted, with the day's antics benefiting the Foundation for Burns and Trauma. This looks like FUN. After taking a number of clues, the teams spread out throughout the city but are limited to walking,… Continue

As a name "My Blog" sucks big time. Is playing in the bush leagues, a snappy name coming with a numbered jersey if we make it above the fold? Aside from question of whether I really need another blog, can I write another without redundant recycling of existing blogs? Is it possible to plagiarize oneself? Academics continually cite themselves, which also involves referring to oneself in the third person.

2ND ST. & MESCALERO, NW--"What's the matter Sam...have you quit wearing socks?"
I asked. We were sitting in the Flying Star last week. It was about 7:00 in the morning. Sam wasn't wearing socks and I wanted to know why. I guessed he was out of clean ones.
"I can't wear socks today. I've got to paint in my bare feet,"
he said. Sam Pillsbury had been painting an opera set for a couple weeks, but this was the first I had heard of… Continue

Many of us see things every day about our city that annoy or inconvenience us, or others. Sometimes we call 311. Sometimes we log on to DCF to complain and rev support among like-minded people. Strangely, this less-than often yields the desired results of actually fixing the issue at hand.
