On August 8, 2017, Councilors Chrobocinski and O'Leary will present “Discussion and Possible Action Relating to Proposed Changes to the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Fund.” There will be recommended action on recreation projects for the bond election which failed on May 23, 2017.

The following are my recommended actions:

I strongly recommend that the $13.4 million of CIP funds be used to improve existing facilities: the golf course and softball fields.

This week’s County Council meeting may be standing room only!

During the upcoming County Council meeting Tuesday Aug. 8, the County Council is going to propose passing the items of the REC Bond, which were rejected by the County voters in May.

The two Councilors presenting the items for approval, James Chrobocinski and Vice Chair Susan O'Leary, are the subjects of a County investigation into an Ethics violation for their involvement in these items.

Another insult, another “apology”. Have you noticed how often nowadays we see an insult or criticism thrown wildly about by well-known persons, soon followed by an “apology” when they get roundly hammered by social media, commentators, sponsors, etc.? One would like to believe that they had an epiphany of remorse at their poor behavior, but who cannot wonder whether it’s just crocodile tears and an effort to stem the bleeding … especially when advertisers and sponsors (and therefore $$$) are on the line?

I would like to suggest that Mr. Nebel isn’t very clear about things and how they work. While “Down at the farm with Grandma", I strongly doubt he’s ever been on the receiving end of fire. I have had that "opportunity" in Afghanistan, and would like to highlight some faults in his logic:
 
First of all, they are ‘magazines.’ Not “banana clips.”

If you claim to be a follower of Christ, I encourage you to consider your present commitment to a local church. – David Platt.
 
Have you considered how important, and biblical, is our commitment to a local church? The local church is the place where the individual Christian has the opportunity find resources such as support, accountability, encouragement, and fellowship.
 
The local church is where we grow in Christ and are equipped to go out and reflect His love back into the world.

Response To Mr. White (link).
 
For starters, Tommy Rodella, the former Sheriff of Rio Arriba County, is not hyperbole. 
 
Neither is former Mora County Sheriff Thomas Garza who was convicted of tampering with public records by having deputies (patronage employees) falsify reports. Nor is Sheriff Joe Arpaio down in Phoenix who was just convicted of obstruction of justice.
 
Perhaps I’m just paranoid, but let me explain to you where I’m coming from. I grew up in Springfield, Illinois.

A “youth helping refugee youth” initiative to collect a few items for refugee students recently resettled in Albuquerque is taking place right now, and we invite all our community’s youth to participate.

A local church is collecting 40 new solid-color backpacks sized for middle to high school students (no sports team logos or other logos allowed), along with the necessary basic school supplies to fill those backpacks, such as 2-inch binders, loose leaf paper, pencils and
