The Sierra County New Mexico Statehood Centennial Celebration Committee (a part of the non-profit corporation Campo Espinoso) is hosting a special (and potentially one-time) event celebrating Elephant Butte Dam. The roadway at the top of the dam will be open to the public (for foot traffic only) for the first time since 9/11.

Historic photographs and video interviews of Sierra County pioneers will be displayed at the Dam Site, as well as a 47-star flag sewn by the Winter Quilters of Sierra County. The American Legion Post 44 and the Jr. ROTC will perform a flag ceremony and honor guard, and the HSHS band and chorus will perform "Oh, Fair New Mexico."  The Dam Site Resort will reopen for the day and present a special lunch buffet costing $10; entrance to the roadway is free. Meet at the Dam Site Recreation Area off route 51 for a free shuttle to the dam. Contact: Harriette Bolling, 575-744-4761, chipshot@valornet.com.

December is National Tie Month!

Posted December 1, 2011

The necktie, which is basically a long piece of cloth tied in a knot, is a snazzy fashion invention that dates back to the 17th century with the neckerchief. The necktie has developed into different variations over the years, meshing or clashing with the changing fashion eras (i.e. the clip-on, bow tie, skinny tie, novelty ties, silk ties, and ties for women). Primarily, the necktie had been a professional staple in men’s wardrobe for obeying a strict dress code but the accessory has developed throughout many fashion creations (the necktie skirt), tie trends like ties worn with casual wear, and terrible fads like females sporting the necktie with obscenely short skirts (such an fashion eye-sore!)

National Tie Month is definitely a good time to let your best tie be seen!
