Bobcat Siting Tuesday, 8-23-16

End of East Chili Line Road

Annie McGovern and her granddaughter were playing Pokemon Go on Tuesday and captured more than they bargained for!  Caught on photo by our intrepid adventurers was the Bobcat everyone keeps talking about.  See those black markings and big, bushy tail?  It’s taller than the average feline, compared to the upright on the gate.

Another Successful Firewise Event!

Posted by Moderators for: Anniemcgovern@aol.com

Our third annual FirewiseUSA Community Day, held Saturday, May 7th, was a resounding success with 79 volunteers signed in.  This included seven ATC students/parents and 3 three from Amy Biehl.  Twenty-two student posters from the Amy Biehl project were displayed and Judy Reinhartz, a North resident, who wrote a “Firewise Curriculum To Spark Interest” (piloted at Amy Biehl this year) talked for three hours with visitors to the exhibit.  Thanks, Judy!  State police, La Cienega firefighters, landscapers, residents, and HOA representatives all volunteered for this expanding community effort.  Thanks so much, everyone! Together we are creating a firesafe community.

Dog Death Leads to Arraignment

In May, an off-leash pitbull attacked a shitzu on RVS trails and the shitzu could not be saved by emergency personnel.  The State of New Mexico has filed criminal charges against the pitbull owner who will be arraigned in Magistrate Court on July 23.  See drop-down under “Meetings and Notices” tab for more details.

Update: Link for 7/22/2014 article in the New Mexican:
