Harvest Festival at Wildlife West

 

The annual Harvest Festival is coming up on Saturday and Sunday, August 16-17, 2014, at Wildlife West Nature Park, in Edgewood. It’s a time to celebrate the area’s culture, traditions and agricultural heritage. Visitors will experience the rich history of the pinto bean farming in the Pinto Bean Museum, which displays antique bean processing equipment, farming artifacts and historic local photos. The Northern Rio Grande National Heritage Foundation provided funding for the museum and the collection of farming equipment.

 

The Festival opens on Saturday morning with a tractor parade beginning at 9 a.m. at Wildlife West, traveling west along historic Route 66 and ending at the Tractor Supply Company. The tractor games will be held on Sunday this year, beginning at 2 p.m. on the field in front of the historic Pinto Bean Barn.

 

Visitors can stroll through the park and have fun experiencing an old west atmosphere. They can explore a replica of the western town of Venus (original name of Edgewood), and see blacksmith demonstrations, weaving and spinning demonstrations, and antique cars and trucks. Also on showcase will be old iron tractors, steam engines, corn shellers and other historic ranch equipment.

 

Other activities include behind the scenes black bear tours, snake and reptile identification presentations by the New Mexico Herpetological Society, and artistic chainsaw techniques demonstration by Mark Chavez, renowned chainsaw artists. Then take an old-fashioned hayride around the park. There will be games for children, opportunity to experience wildlife up close, and artists and vendors.

 

Anasazi Fields Winery will be on hand on Saturday for wine tasting. Throughout the weekend, the Knights of Columbus volunteers will serve up pinto beans, fresh sweet corn, and hamburgers and hot dogs.

 

Don’t miss the Chuckwagon Dinner Show on Saturday, 6 – 9 p.m. Come early for the activities during the day and stay for the evening free-flight peregrine falcon show, pie auction, barbeque dinner and Holy Water & Whiskey western-swing music concert. Reservations for the dinner show are required by 2 p.m. on the day of the show. Chuckwagon tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors, $12 for children 5-11, and kids under 5 are free.

 

All activities throughout the weekend, except for the Chuckwagon dinner show, are included with regular admission to the park: $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, $4 students and children under 5 are free. Music performances are presented in a covered all-weather amphitheater. Plus free dry camping and parking.

Will There Be A M”E”SD?

Editor: Mr. Ueckert is a resident of Edgewood interested in education in the community.  We appreciate his desire to express his opinions on the important issues facing the Moriarty-Edgewood School District (MESD)

The Future of “E” in MESD

By Jerry Ueckert

Who can say what will happen should MESD carry through and shutter Edgewood Elementary? Personally, I would like to see Moriarty and Edgewood grow together in a mutually beneficial relationship, but MESD seems bent on biting the hand that feeds it.

The Great Depression couldn’t kill Edgewood’s school or community spirit. The old Edgewood Schoolhouse was built as part of Roosevelt’s Works Projects Administration and community members joined together to construct the school from indigenous materials on land donated by the Bassett family. That school served generations of Edgewood families from 1938 to 1960, but after consolidation into the Moriarty District, the Edgewood school was shuttered and the community suffered a near death. By the late ‘60s, Edgewood had only an RV park, Paula Donner’s Realty, and the Horn gas station on its main street to serve as a reminder of its former days.

Once I-40 opened, Edgewood saw the addition of businesses on the four corners of the interchange, which brought new families and construction into the community. Within just a few years, Edgewood experienced a surge in population and Moriarty was too small to handle the load. A new Edgewood Elementary had to be constructed and only a few years later, an annex had to be built to keep up with the area’s growth.

Having their own school once again was cause for celebration. A revitalization of creative energy followed. Many artists began calling Edgewood home. New businesses were established and a new vision of Edgewood’s future rose from the dust.

Now it seems as if we’ve come full circle and are threatened once again with losing our elementary school. But rather than being prompted by declining enrollment or poor performance, the closure of Edgewood Elementary is based solely on finances. Evidence supporting the stated concerns of shuttering by Edgewood’s Town Council and Chamber of Commerce abound.

Elaine Simon, author of a project-based education course, “Schools and Community Development,” states, “Schools are often the one institution still surviving in low-income neighborhoods, and they serve as a point of pride and community for families. When a neighborhood loses its schools, it also loses an institution that builds relationships among local residents and binds generations, while it serves local children. Losing schools makes it all the more likely that these neighborhoods will deteriorate further.”

The Atlanta Journal – Constitution reported in 2010, “DeKalb County school officials decided Forrest Hills Elementary was too small to remain open, and neighbors say its closure has changed their community in palpable ways. Formerly active residents and many young parents have moved away. Community gatherings have grown smaller. The recession makes the impact on property values hard to determine, but many residents believe they’ve been damaged.”

Richard Layman, a Washington, DC urban/commercial district revitalization and transportation/mobility advocate, says, “Schools are fundamental anchors which build and maintain quality neighborhoods and communities. Therefore to maintain communities we need to maintain the schools located within them.”

Andy Smarick, a charter school advocate and author of “The Urban School System of the Future: Applying Principles and Lessons of Chartering”, says that closing neighborhood schools can have negative and unintended consequences, stating, “Even if it’s low-performing, at least it’s a stable institution and an indication that the government has at least some investment in that neighborhood.”

So, do we want a school district unwilling to invest in the welfare and future of the community? Faced with these questions, Edgewood residents have legitimate reasons for concern that have not been addressed by MESD. But having faced these questions before, they have proven their willingness and ability to rebuild their future, literally out of the very dirt beneath their feet.

How does that benefit MESD? The short answer is: it doesn’t.

Edgewood Moving Forward

The following was received from Edgewood Moving Forward:

In response to the Edgewood Town Council’s Resolution 2014-01, we have formed a group called Edgewood Moving Forward.  Our goal and mission is to create an Edgewood School District separate from the current school district.  We have a vision for our children’s education.  We invite you to learn about this vision at the town hall meeting that will be held on Saturday, April 12th at 3:00 pm at Edgewood Middle School.  We believe this is the time for Edgewood to Move Forward and take charge of our childrens’ future. We hope to see you there. 


**Please help spread the word about this meeting. Please forward this email to friends and family that might be interested in attending. Thank you.

Today: Municipal Elections Throughout The Estancia Valley & Tijeras

There are municipal elections throughout the Estancia Valley & Tijeras from 7 AM to & PM today.  Please use your privilege to elect the candidates of your choice.

You will find a few of my qualifications and accomplishments below:

CHUCK RING’S FACT SHEET

Edgewood Municipal Election Campaign 2014

It is that time again. I currently serve as a councilor on your Edgewood governing body, and have done so since 1999, except for a two-year hiatus. During the two years I was absent from the town council, I remained active working hard to improve Edgewood’s financial well-being while planning serious town projects for future benefit. I was re-elected to a new four-year term in 2010 and it is that term which will end this coming March 4th.

During the preceding four years I have been privileged to work with a dedicated council eager to see Edgewood become the community it seems destined to be. Roads have been paved and maintained far beyond what had occurred since Edgewood was first incorporated. During the last four years your governing body built a public works facility which allows your dedicated employees to maintain road and similar equipment under the comfort of heated space or cooled space depending on the need of the seasons. The town governing body, its staff and our volunteer planning and zoning commission, formulated a renewed plan for Edgewood Commons (also known as section 16) which along with revised zoning and sub-division ordinances will become the guide for Edgewood Commons and some other areas in our community.

Edgewood’s Police Department is under new direction by your police chief Fred Radosevich. Improvements in supervision and other facets of the department’s operation have been made and will continue to be made during the future. During the coming years, Chief Radosevich will make training, equipment and personnel additions to see our department keep pace with the needs of a safe community. I retired as Captain in charge of the New Mexico State Police Criminal Division in 1985. Prior to my retirement from that agency I attended and graduated from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Academy, the Drug Enforcement Agency’s Academy and obtained accreditation at the Executive level of New Mexico’s Law Enforcement Academy. The training and accreditation will continue to be helpful in ensuring Edgewood has fully trained and professional police as the governing body seeks to assist our Chief of Police.

Edgewood has been fortunate to have the Mountain & Valley Family Health Care Facility (FCFHC) here since 2003. What came as a 7800 square foot medical, dental and mental health services facility has outgrown its present space and plans are to construct a new health commons of approximately 42,000 square feet with an urgent care component, and other ancillary services, such as a community wellness center open to the community. The facility presently employs over fifty dedicated providers and staff. Total employment will reach over 100 once the new facility is completed. We believe the facility will continue to partner with the University of New Mexico in medical provider training.

Edgewood recently joined with the Edgewood Chamber of Commerce (ECC) in formalizing a memorandum of understanding allowing ECC to organize as Edgewood’s primary economic development organization. ECC is organizing for recruitment of businesses, services and other vital needs with economic components. We expect to see firm results though ECC’s efforts.

I have served on various committees during my tenure as a town council member and currently (Since 2003) serve as a “consumer” member of FCFHC Board of Directors. I continue to serve .on the Northern Region Transportation District Board of Directors which provides transportation to and from Edgewood with a mid-day service to be added soon.

I currently hold certification as a graduate of the Municipal Officials Leadership Institute under the auspices of the New Mexico Municipal League and I will continue to improve my knowledge and efficiency with in-service training.

I humbly ask for your vote during this election cycle ending March 4th. In turn, I will continue to serve you with honesty, integrity and full dedication.

Respectfully,

Charles (Chuck) Ring

Edgewood Town Councilor
