Danger at the Rodeo
Press Release [ Thu Apr 14 2016 1:15 PM ]
Karen Glinski, retired hot-air balloon pilot, will be at Page One Books at 2:30pm on Sunday, April 17, to talk about and sign her young-adult book, Danger at the Rodeo.
The book is described as such: "This exciting young adult book is the second to feature Emerson, his dog Lucky and his grandpa Charlie, a Navajo elder. This time, all three are headed to a week-long rodeo but instead of fun, they are plucked headlong into a criminal coping scandal and Lucky is stolen. Emerson begins a race against time to save his beloved dog and expose the criminal before they get him!"
Glinski was born in Yokohama, Japan, and grew up the oldest of six children in a military family. She majored in Anthropology at UNM, where she formed a life-long interest in the Native American cultures of the Southwest. She shares her Albuquerque home with two miniature dachshunds, Mr. Bojangles and Wee Willie Winkie. A retired hot-air balloon pilot, Glinski spends her time working, writing and training her doxies in rally and scent discrimination. Danger at the Rodeo is her second published book and the sequel to Stranded at Sheep Camp. She is working on the third book in this series, The Badge of Honor.
Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Glinski event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.

Dream Blog #355
By Megan Reneau [ Mon Mar 28 2016 4:05 PM ]
I'm at my school playground. The playground is huge, the play structures look like skyscrapers. I'm the only one there, and I'm driving around in a car. It's a toy car. I'm driving through the streets really fast. I'm on a mission, though I don't know what for. The ground is rumbling and a giant dog steps out from behind a structure. I recognize it: It's my dog, Sasha.
In real life, she's a tiny miniature pinscher, but now she's truly a giant towering over these immense buildings. I swerve into a side street hoping she didn't see me. She did, though, and she's chasing after me. Each step she takes my car bounces off the road. Eventually I crash near the tallest structure.
I crawl out of the wreckage and decide it's time to face her. I climb up to to top of the tallest complex and prepare myself for battle. I have no weapons. The wind is howling, almost blowing my tiny body off but I stand strong. She throws her head down to eat me.
I wake up.

Vote for Education
By Megan Reneau [ Mon Feb 1 2016 12:18 PM ]
If you’re a registered voter living in the Albuquerque area (particularly if you’re in the APS district), tomorrow is an important day! A vote regarding educational bonds affecting APS, CNM and local charter schools is taking place. This could increase CNM’s capital mill levy $1 million (they haven’t gotten an increase since 1996) and APS and charter schools' capital mill levy to $575 million. Capital mill levy means the money would go towards construction, renovations, operating expenses, etc. And guess what! This won’t increase taxes!!! Whaaaaat!
