  • This week, my column salutes local youth Clay Adams.

    Adams is a sophomore this year and last school year, ignited a spark that changed his orbit.

    In Asset language, a spark is a hobby or passion, the thing that makes your life worth living and brings you joy.

    Last winter another local youth, Trae Randolph, taught Adams how to ride bulls — and so it began.

    Adams traveled to rodeos with Randolph, riding when he could and spending time in Jal, N.M. with his father James, indulging in bull riding whenever he had the chance.

  • Some think the Valles Caldera deserves a trail around its rim. At 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Fuller Lodge, Dorothy Hoard will tell of her 12-year still unfinished odyssey to make the dream a reality. 

    The resurgent dome of the Valles Caldera is, geologically speaking, very young. Its structure is largely intact. It is also a small caldera, 13-15 miles in diameter, so its bowl-shape depression can be easily seen atop a mountain. These attributes led a small group of dedicated hikers to the conclusion that a caldera of this caliber deserved a trail around its rim.  

    Hoard will discuss the effort to convince land managers of the value of such a trail, the current status of the trail concept and the results of a three-year reconnaissance effort to determine the feasibility of such a trail. She will also describe the effects of the Las Conchas Fire, which burned large sections of the caldera rim in 2011. The question becomes whether the concept of a rim trail is still viable.  

  • Kiwanis awarded Michelle Boerigter the Jeannette O. Wallace Scholarship on Aug. 7. Wallace was a longtime Kiwanian and former state representative.
