Sorry for the late posting but see below for the Friday Blast:

  Friday Blast
            February 28, 2014

    Your Chamber,
Working for you…
We’ve had a busy week at the Chamber.
Last Saturday the Chamber Board of Directors met at Jim Bouton’s ranch in Torreon to work out details for 2014.  Dates are locked in for our events this year, we’ve looked at policies, and generally gotten organized for the year!  We will be beginning our Mixers on the 3rd Thursday of every month on March 20 at ReMax Western Heritage…more details to come later.
Please contact the office if you want to book a mixer this year. We’ll be happy to answer any questions about what it takes to be a host.
Thursday afternoon for lunch we co-hosted the Veteran’s Business Administration Luncheon  with the Moriarty Chamber.  We received a great deal of information for veterans who want to or already own businesses.  If you missed the meeting, please feel free to email the office for information about how to contact the right agencies or individuals to learn more.
Thursday evening the Leadership Edgewood Class hosted the Edgewood Candidate’s forum. Three candidates for Town Council in Edgewood were grilled by Rory McClannahan, Editor and General Manager of the East Mountain Telegraph, who asked his own questions, and then the audience filled out questions and he asked those as well.
We appreciate all who helped and attended, especially Rory and our stellar timekeeper, Kathy Courreges.  Our other moderator, Leota Harriman was ill and unable to make the forum.
Rita Loy Simmons, Chuck Ring and Mike Turner are running for two positions.  If you live in Edgewood, please be sure to vote on Tuesday March 4.
 
Economic Development
Things are humming with the Economic Development committee.  We appreciate the help and skills of our committee.  We will soon begin to see results of the hard work.
We are also preparing a research study and will be asking our membershipto be included in answering questions about growth and what you would like to see in our community.  We will be forming focus groups, and sending out questionnaires.  We will keep you posted when it’s time to ask you for your input about you would like to have in our community.

This Did Not Happen .. Why Not?

Image

Below, you will see a replication of a document sent to some parents from the school administration of the school their child or children attend.  The document bears the typed name of Tom  Sullivan, the Superintendent of the Moriarty-Edgewood School District (MESD).

The text of the document seems to be an attempt to set the stage for helpful and honest dialogue regarding possible solutions to the finanacial conundrum in which the MESD finds itself.

Sadly, we find from the document there are several promises made which remain unfulfilled. Those unfulfilled promises serve to harm the announced transparency of the MESD Superintendent, and the governance provided by the MESD Board of Education.

Why are the citizens of the MESD left wondering why the words of the document were not carried out?  Was it because of secret instructions to the superintendent by an unknown person or a group of persons?  Or were the promises contained in the words of the attachment purposely ignored due to some mysterious and sinister reason?  Or … was the failure due to an extended lapse of memory on the part of the document’s author?  So many questions — So few answers.

You decide:

Dear Moriarty-Edgewood parents and staff,

As you likely know by now, the District has been facing some serious budget and facility problems which, unfortunately, now require prompt attention. We have lost 2,000 students in the last 12 years- over 40% from our highest enrollment point.

During a series of both staff Advisory Committee and public meetings, we have identified a number of options to address the crisis- virtually all of them requiring school closure(s) and identifying other appropriate, alternative uses for existing District buildings.

Although almost everyone recognizes the need for drastic action, no one wants it be their own campus that is selected. While this may be understandable, it creates its own set of additional problems. I absolutely believe certain decisions have to be made NOW to at least stabilize the District’s finances, while more comprehensive, long term planning can then be undertaken. Problems that were 12 years in the making can’t be totally solved between now and August, 2014; especially those that would require major overhauls to curriculum, staffing patterns, facility design, transportation etc.

The MESD Board of Education has scheduled several more public meetings in the next month- the evenings of Dec. 10, 17 and January 21 (emphasis added) at the very least- at which they will continue to weigh options and listen to the school community.

Please try to understand that whatever the final outcome, it will be driven by the Board’s efforts to do what is necessary for the well being of the District as a whole.

Sincerely, Tom Sullivan

Well, we all now know the MESD Superintendent and the MESD Board of Education did not wait to make the decision to close two schools until or after January 21, 2014; but hurried to make the changes on December 17, 2013.

Given the failure of the superintendent and his and the board’s actions is it any wonder that parents, citizens and officials of the Edgewood community give little to no credence to anything they have done or will do in the future,

Edgewood Chamber: Insty Message, School Closure

Image

     Edgewood Chamber of Commerce
insty message

 
Please make every attempt to attend the
School Board Meeting Tuesday December 17
at 6pm in the Moriarty High School Board Room.
The members of the School Board are considering
how they will fix a badly bleeding budget.
Closing a couple of schools and moving 6th graders to the Middle school are part of the solution.
Our problem is that they are thinking about closing
the ONLY Elementary School in the  Town of Edgewood.  We have been working very hard to attract new business to our area to create better paying jobs and help our general economy.
Do you know what it looks like when the ONE Elementary School in the actual Town of Edgewood is being closed down?
The school that is actually the star in the school district, with high evaluation grades?
If this is something you want to discuss further with the School Board and Superintendent Tom Sullivan,
I have attached their contact information at the bottom of this mini-blast.
Please, as members of our business community, contact board members, the superintendent, and
Senator Sue Wilson Beffort who has helped in the past.

 Ponderings:
How Unselfish Thinking
can make you more successful:
Unselfish thinking can often deliver a return greater than any other kind of thinking.
1. Unselfish thinking brings personal fulfillment
Few things in life bring greater personal rewards than helping others.  Charles H. Burr believed, “Getters generally don’t get happiness; givers get it”.  Helping people brings great satisfaction.
2. Unselfish thinking adds value to others
“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has enjoyed the trust and the respect of intelligent men and women, and the love of little children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who has alwas looked for the best in others and given them the best he had; whose life was an inspiration, whose memory a benediction.”
-Bessie Anderson Stanley
If you are a chamber member, you can leave your business cards, rack cards and flyers at the Visitors center inside the South door to the Library. Be sure to get your information over here. It’s part of your benefit as an Edgewood Chamber member!

 Ponderings:
Overcoming Overwhelm:
The “One bite at a time” method is effective for overcoming overwhelm, a nervous condition often brought on by overloaded memory and characterized by paralysis of the decision-making muscles.
Overwhelm occurs when we become paralyzed by possibilities.  If you are in the throes of an Overwhelm attack – which can come on quite suddenly- sit down and take a few deep breaths (don’t forget to exhale). Then make a step-by-step list of whatever you absolutely must get done within the next hour. (And don’t waste time arguing that you don’t have the time to do this.  If you have time to panic, then you have time to make a little list.)
Focus only on your most immediate must-do’s.
You’ll feel your brain unfreezing as you proceed.
