The Daily Word in dragging Donald Trump, overhauling No Child Left Behind, and the trends of 2015
By Cerridwen Stucky [ Wed Dec 9 2015 12:01 PM ]
Blue and Red agree for once on how much Trump sucks.
2015 was a strange year. People in the future will look back at these trends and think we were all freaking insane.
Apple overprices their battery case. Shocker.
Get clean for Christmas. A South valley clinic is offering free acupuncture detox treatment for the next couple of weeks.
A bill that would ban panhandling in certain places is on the agenda for Tuesday's City Council Meeting.
No Child Left Behind finally goes away. Hopefully its replacement is more helpful.

Special Olympics New Mexico
Area 5 Unified Volleyball Competition
By Geoffrey Plant [ Sun Apr 17 2011 6:50 PM ]
Today this writer had the pleasure of attending the Area Five Unified Volleyball Competition held at Johnson Gym on the UNM campus. In a nutshell, New Mexico is divided into Six Areas. Bernalillo, Sandoval, Torrance, Valencia and Socorro are all in Area Five. Unified means there are disabled and non-disabled players on the teams together.
The atmosphere in the arena was laid back and jocular, with athletes in particular taking pleasure in their game. There was yelling. There were victory dances before matches even started. Most importantly though, the volleyball matches were filled with knuckle-biting climaxes that rivaled the third period in a'79 vintage Rangers vs. Islanders hockey game.
Check out the official Special Olympics New Mexico website and schedule here. Events are free, and everyone is welcome. Check out the Rio Rancho Area Five fundraiser t.v. spot if you haven't seen it yet.
