Culturing Milk

There was a time when the items in your house weren't assembled by the tiny hands of children in other countries and shipped to a fluorescent-lit, big-box store near you. The Old School rooted itself in Albuquerque a couple of years ago with a mission: To pass on the skills of yore that helped people live inexpensively and sustainably. Experts teach classes in the home arts, and cheap and safe child care is available. This weekend's sessions may yield items that can easily be turned into gifts. In the Kitchen Cosmetics class this afternoon, you can learn to make fizzy bath bombs, and salt and sugar scrubs. In the Culturing Milk course, you can make your own yogurt, kefir and cheese. Tomorrow offers Embroidery for Beginners, as well as Soap-Making. Prices and times vary, and space is limited. Go to abqoldschool.com for more. The Old School • Fri Nov 30 • 5 pm • $12 • View on Alibi calendar

Two years later: A look back at Mary Han

As the announcement broke Tuesday that our police force is under investigation by the feds, I was making the final edits to an article about civil rights lawyer Mary Han. She died two years ago, and though the Albuquerque Police Department declared her death a suicide, people who knew her say there’s no way.

The crime scene was so badly handled, according to her family, it will be nearly impossible to find out what happened to Han, an attorney who never shied away from taking on APD or the city. Twenty-six peopleofficers, APD brass, high-ranking city officialswent to Han’s house that day, according to the civil lawsuit.

International District residents say no to another drug clinic

In this week’s Opinion section, longtime reporter Carolyn Carlson takes on a tough issue. UNM wanted to build a substance abuse treatment center near Central and San Mateo. But residents in that area say there are already too many of those kind of places in their neighborhood. UNM argues that more than half of its patients live in or near that region, and it’s serviced by a reliable bus line.

The issue hit close to home for Carlson this year. Read her story and her thoughts on the clinic, addiction and recovery.
