Fall 1981…

New Mexico Prep Guides Football ranked Alamogordo the 4th best team in the state on August 10, 1981 for the new season. The Tigers were ranked behind Clovis, Albuquerque Highland and defending state champion Albuquerque Eldorado. Coach Hveem rated the top five slightly different he believed within the district the Highland Hornets are the team to beat. State-wide he thinks Clovis different he believed within the district the Highland Hornets are the team to beat. State-wide he thinks Clovis should be in the top spot.

 The Tigers were slated for a tough pre-district season with their first game scheduled against the 1979 Oklahoma state champions Eisenhower High School of Lawton Oklahoma. Next, they travel to Hanks a team ranked for the District crown in El Paso.

                Then the Tigers were scheduled to play Albuquerque Del Norte, Carlsbad, Roswell, Mayfield, Highland, then Sandia. The final homecoming game is with Las Cruces.

                Alamogordo Coach Hveem stepped into his 6th year and is the longest tenured varsity Football coach in Alamogordo history. As such beginning the 81 season, for the 82 school year, he has compiled a record of 35-16-1 and 5 straight winning seasons. Coach Hveem notched his 100th career win as a head coach in November of 1980 when the Tigers stopped the Las Cruces Bulldogs 41-12 in Aggie Memorial Stadium. That win earned the Tigers a trip to the state playoffs last season and placed Alamogordo in the spotlight statewide an accomplishment that had been a long time in coming.

   The team for this season is slotted with different student athletes in all but one of the 22 starting slots bringing a different brand to play for the new season…..

Friday November 6th, 1981 turned into a historic night for Alamogordo Tiger football. A 36 year record was broken. The Tigers put the finishing touch on their first AAAA title during their homecoming game by rolling over the Las Cruces Bulldogs 54-8 in their final regular season game of the year.

                The homecoming game victory in Tiger Stadium gave the Alamogordo Tigers a 4-0 record in the season of District 3AAAA play and sole procession of the district championship. This great win marked the 3rd time in 6 years under Coach Hveem that the Tigers qualified to advance to the state playoff, but it is the first time they have qualified for state as the District Champion. Because of the Tigers first place finish, they will host the 1AAAA runner up in the quarter finals of the state playoffs.

NOTE: The Alamogordo Tigers had only won 1 District #1 title in Football prior. That title was won in the mid 1940’s under Coach Rolla Buck 36 years later under Coach Gary Hveem a District Banner again came home to Alamogordo. In the 1940’s the title was won when Alamogordo was a Class AA team. They moved to class AAAA in 1958. This is the very first Class AAAA District Banner for Alamogordo and the team goes into the history books for this achievement 36 years in the making.  

The Santa Fe New Mexican November 19, 1981 ran a story titled, Demons already tagged first round knock out ,referring to the planned first round state playoff game against Alamogordo.

The story said; “some prep forecasters are saying that the Demons won’t even score against Alamogordo… One prognosticator even went so far as to call the Santa Fe Alamogordo clash merely a first round bye for the Tigers… Hveem says his team is quite well balanced  but the outcomes depends on the strength of the opponent game day.”

                Alamogordo did its job and beat Santa Fe as expected 14 to 0 and progressed to the state semi-finals round. A first in decades….

…The psychological game of warfare was before the two big rivals for the state semi-finalists. The Tigers and the Cats has historically been fierce rivals.

A view from the Window at Le Gras 

A view from the Window at Le Gras is a heliographic image and the oldest surviving camera photograph. It was created by Nicéphore Niépce in 1826 or 1827 at Saint-Loup-de-Varennes, France, and shows parts of the buildings and surrounding countryside of his estate, Le Gras, as seen from a high window. 

In honor of National Camera Day, observed each year on June 29th it’s an appropriate photo to share. This day commemorates photographs, the camera, and the memories recorded from each.

George Eastman, also known as “The Father of Photography,” brought the camera to the masses. While he did not invent the camera, he did invent many additions that improved the use, ease, and production of the camera, making it widely available to homes around the world. Steve Jobs and the team of Apple with the introduction of the I-phone transitioned the masses from cameras to smart phones to record the daily events of our lives. And of course Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook with its 2 Billion members provides the platform for instant views around the world of just that special moment. 

I think Mr. Eastman and those Frenchmen before him would be pleased of leap in technology and use of cameras daily and instantly in the moderen era. 

From the original to present photography has come a long way. Smile, snap a photo and post in celebration today…

Candidate for Mayor Doris Gentry Racism is Serious

Doris Gentry denies a relationship with the proud boys. Let’s take her at her word that she does not have a relationship. Let’s take her at her word she was unaware that the individuals at her fundraiser that she was photographed with and filmed with are not “associates of hers nor in her rolladex.”

But Doris will you admit then that you WERE until yesterday connected as a Facebook friend to Ben, a known proud boy who has made the press repeatedly as a Proud Boy using intimidation practices? “

-“Proud Boys show up at politician’s house to protest coronavirus lockdown” The incident occurred just after 4pm, when the group of approximately 15 men—led by self-identified Proud Boy and Frontline America host Ben Bergquam—came to Arias’ home…. Bergquam later told ABC 30 Action News that they went “looking for answers” over the city remaining closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Most of the men can be seen in video from before and during the confrontation wearing Trump or MAGA clothing and accessories.”

Doris will you admit ,that yes, Ben Bergquam did film your speech at your campaign kickoff, has supported you and you have been elected photographed with him?

Doris just be honest and say YES you have met him, yes he filmed my campaign launch, yes, you were photographed with him.

Yes it was an error in judgment to have been affiliated with him.

Yes, I Doris Gentry will do a public reconciliation of ALL campaign funds secured during the event he participated in at the launch of my campaign for mayor.

To demonstrate my commitment to diversity of Napa, I Doris Gentry will donate an equal amount of those funds 1/2 to Black Lives Matter and 1/2 to the United Negro College Fund. I Doris Gentry will post a cleared check online with an apology for any affiliation with any Proud Boys sympathizers or participants during my campaign.

Doris, you can learn from the video below and learn from your mistake?

Admit you are not a racist, we all want to believe in your heart you are not a racist or homophobic, but exercised poor judgement in your response around the relationship with Ben and your campaign and finally put this messiness to bed?

Or will you continue to proclaim you are a victim and misunderstood and people are just being “mean and being racist to you?” (Your words)

Doris people want to believe in you step up, show the courage to denounce a loose affiliation and step up the the challenge.

Critics will criticize on the right but they will still support you as they are now too invested in you not to…

The ethical ball is now in your court.

Block those who stand on the side of ethical dialog? That’s easy block your questioners and hope they go away….”

or admit an error in affiliation occurred, make amends, donate the campaign funds, apologize for misleading comments and move forward…

Created for my friend Chris on this one as this is dedicated to you and your friends that want a mayor that represents all the diversity that is Napa. Keep the candle burning get out the vote.

A Political Commentary in regards to Mayoral Candidate Doris Gentry and supression of Freedom of Information Requests…

Yesterday, a Republican leader of which I respect immensely,  (we just happen to disagree on a list of candidates this election cycle), asked me why I am so “hateful” towards Mayoral Candidate Doris Gentry. 

I do not believe I’ve ever been hateful that is never my intent. I have pointed out concerns I have of the candidates integrity and in doing what is right for the citizens she wants to represent. There seem to be discrepancies in her past, her stories while based on fragments of truth, are embellished upon, to the point of not being believable. (Claiming to have jumped from a 3rd story window handcuffed and bounced onto a canvas head first then lightly landed on the ground, was able to pull handcuffed hands to her front and then run off completely unharmed and unscatthed.) (I had a physical trainer that was an Olympic trials qualifier and NCAA award winning coach try to recreate the scene. He demontrated that it is IMPOSSIBLE without harming one self)

Document 1 attached shows Doris attempting to temporarily supress Freedom of Information requests.

Doris Gentry Email to City Manager Attempting to Suppress Freedom of Information Requests indefinitly as “people will be home bored, thinking”People will say we are up to crap, oh well, just ban it all momentarily” Doris Gentry Vice Mayor & Candidate for Mayor 3/23/20202

 Note: she does not recommend a time to restart those requests, her suggestion is a temporary ban until life gets back to normal. Is life normal yet Doris? Would you still suggest an ongoing supresson of FOI request? My gut is yes at least until the election is over for obvious reasons. Per her email to the city manager “people are home bored and thinking” Well Vice Mayor Gentry, you are darned right people are home and yes I hope they are thinking.  Photo 1 is the document suggesting suspension of FOI requests for documents or open government. Where I come from that is considered a temporary suspension on freedom of speech and freedom of access to govement. As one whom wraps themself in the flag, I certainly don’t get how suspension of FOI requests is patriotic and serves the people of the community she wants to lead?

Photos 3 and 4 refer to Mayoral Candidate Gentry’s postion as an owner of Adtech but then claiming so has no idea what they do or where they are located. A question of judgement.

Doris Gentery Legal Deposition in wheich she claims to the court not to know what Adtech did and did not know where its offices were located.
Candidate Doris Gentry claims in her official profile a job title of Business Woner of Adtech Corporation. Was Doris an Active Owner? Or was she an Absentee owner? As an absentee owner why would a candidate place ownership in her resume as Job Titles Held?

The question for me here is she wants to be leader of the city however in a deposition when asked, “Did you participate in the business of Ad Tech? Her response was ” Oh, heavens NO.” When asked Do you have an understanding of what Ad Tech was? He response in a legal deposition was “ No I don’t know what it does.” When asked do you know where the business was located? Her response under the threat of perjury was, “No I don’t.” So I’ll provide her the benefit of the doubt and assume she testified truthfully. However additionally we have to question her judgement. How do you list yourself as a BUSINESS OWNER in a resume yet not know where the business is located? I am and have been a stockholder in many companies. Even companies I purchase stock in or have been gifted. I am well aware of where they are located, what their business is and of what they produce or do. Most of us as informed investors want to know what we are invested in or as OWNERS as there is owner liabilities laws. Now let’s assume she was just gifted this stock. Fair enough one might not pay attention to it but then why would one place on their resume that they were an owner. In doing so that implies active participation. One can’t have it both ways. It’s simply a a case of judgement. I’ve made mistakes and certain have exercised poor judgement. I have no issue with a mistake or error in judgement. Just own that mistake. Ethically speaking if she claimed yes she was an passive owner of stock in a small company Adtech then it would be authentic. I would suspect her and her husband have owned stock in 100s of companies over the years. Active owner or passive owner that is the question of applied ownership?

Are my questions mean spirited? Not in the least, that is not the intention. I like my cousin Doris.

What I don’t accept is when the public is being mislead or freedoms are being potentially supressed by those in power. Or when one exasurates a story to the point of being implausable.

Leadership of a city requires that we have a mayor that represents ALL of the people. The leader has to inspire confidence in the processes and the instituions of government.

The three examples above do not provide me with the level of confidence that she respects the institution, the public nor the city she is asking for the privilage to represent.  I am happy to be proven wrong with a simple response to each issue outlined by the candidate.

Review:Removing Barriers to State Occupational Licenses To Enhance Entrepreneurial Job Growth: Out of Prison, Out of Work by Author & Executive Coach Chris Edwards“This work is a comprehensive review of the flaws of the legislative process in which felons are penalized post incarceration with punitive laws that prevent gainful employment. The judicial system was crafted to create justice and once an individual has served their time or paid their debt to society then they should be able to rebuild their lives and regain employment without a lifetime of punishment. The policy recommendation contained in this book is an outline of the cause and effect of a broken system and a policy recommendation to remove the barriers of licensing in a variety of businesses to allow ex-felons to return back to work and become productive contributing members of society. This book is timely, needs to happen and every legislative representative at the state and national level of every state and the federal level should be required to read this recommendation. Every civics class in America should have a copy and discuss. Get a copy today and let’s achieve legitimate jobs security for all Americans.”  – Martha Robinson’s Judicial Justice Report Recommended Reading

From the Author

“This book is very personal.  The founding fathers crafted a system of justice that was built upon a foundation of fair and equitable punishment for a crime or an act and then allow the individual back into society without issue to contribute and rebuilt a productive taxpaying life. The system that exists today forces many individuals back into a life of crime all because they can’t get gainful employment that pays a living wage. Should an ex-felon that has paid their dues and served their time be prevented from being a hair dresser, barber, teacher, practice law, sell property or participate in the the financial services sector? No all should be allowed work if they have the skills to do the jobs. The licensure system in the US prevents millions of individuals from gainful employment with the false premise they are protecting society. In the end that protection backfires as the ex-felon that cannot find employment that is gainful or rewarding is then tempted to go back into a life of crime. Reform is needed and needed now to recreate a system of justice that is not punitive and one that rewards individuals that want to move forward and contribute verses one that hold individuals down and prevents advancement. The existing laws negatively impact BIPOC, minority and economically challenged communities disproportionately. If one wants to bring people forward and end violence on the streets and protests then we must begin crafting legislation that builds employment opportunities.  Time for change is now. The book crafted is just one of many examples of policy change that needs to happen to build full employment for the masses. Pick up your copy today and then take action write your legislators and let’s get people back to work”.  -Chris Edwards Author, Essayists, Mentor & Executive Coach

Happy Mehregan.

To my Persian friends Happy Mehregan.

To those of my followers unfamiliar a bit of history…

The autumn starts with the month of Mehr in Persia and its 16th day (Mehregan) is the celebration of light, friendship, kindness, and love in ancient Avestan calender. … It is the Thanksgiving Day for the Iranian farmers. In older days Mehregan was harvest day and some of the crops were sent to the king as a gift.

The rituals of Mehregan have gone through various changes over the past thousands of years; and been held differently in different regions of Iran.

In ancient era, people came together during Mehregan in purple clothes. Each of them held a felicitation letter (or greeting card, as it is called today) in hand as a gift to present to others.

The felicitation letters had a sweet smell and were wrapped up in a nice way. During the festival, a tablecloth full of autumn foods and drinks was unfolded. People played music and performed group dances after eating and drinking. They sang songs and danced together. They also added some flammable plants like saffron into the fireplace to make the fire more blazing.

At the end of ceremony, the Iranians made a circle by taking each other’s hands as a sign of reaffirming pledges together.

Visiting each other (based on an Iranian culture, it is the younger ones who pay visit to the elders) is another part of Mehregan rituals. They also named the babies born during the month with the word Mehr as a prefix coming before their first name; like Mehryar, Mehrshid, Mehrnoush, Mehrpad, Mehrdad, Mehrban and so on.

Today, Mehregan Festival is not marked in the ancient form described in historical books of fourth, fifth and sixth centuries. Neither is it celebrated by the government or private and unofficial entities.

These days, the festive is held only as a family festival among Zoroastrians in the southern provinces of Yazd and Kerman. In some Zoroastrian-populated villages of Yazd, people sacrifice a ship for Mithra. They also hold gatherings in public places singing songs and saying prayers. Mehregan tablecloth is unfolded as in the past; and people reaffirm pledges of friendship to each other at the end of the ceremony.

So to my Persian friends and supporters have a wonderful celebration…

From the Author: Chris Edwards

This book was the second in a series of the result of my working for 3 years with a non-profit and working with a group of very committed women and men that were recovering from addiction, coming out of incarceration and just needing hope, inspiration, confidence and a 2nd chance at a new life. Each showed me the best in humanity in their attempt to start over. The mentoring opportunity with these individuals was life changing. Having prior to this timeframe worked as an executive with a Fortune 500 company in the luxury goods world and then myself, going from having the world in my hand to loosing everything and bouncing back again, I found that these individuals taught me as much if not more than I taught them about life balance. This book is dedicated to the thousands of individuals that need a second chance and someone to believe in them bouncing back from homelessness, incarceration or drug addiction. We live in a world where people are judged, institutional obstacles and prejudices prevent second chances, however I believe everyone deserves those opportunities.  This book is dedicated to providing them that opportunity and is a partial roadmap of believing in oneself to get there. Priced so anyone can afford it, as the power of self-love and affirmation is of more value than all the riches of the land. Enjoy and believe in yourself each and every day. Every day is a new day with blue skies. Smile even though it hurts, sometimes smile. We all look so much better when we smile. Everyday is a new day for a little sunshine. Today is a new day, find the love and joy to move forward. Smile for me, smile for you. Smile for the love within yourself. Read more

Review

Review “Smart dialog, a plan to move forward along with an affirmation plan to drive you happiness during these dark days; 2 Hours Unplugged Unplug and reconnect follows the formula that Authors Chris Edwards and Rene Sepulveda utilized when they together crafted the book series Coach Robert Louis Sepulveda: The Early Days. During these dark and down days  due to political unrest and the public health issues; this book is a refreshing look at the positive with detailed research and great inspirational stories. This book crafted alone by author Chris Edwards, follows the similar formula of the collaborative works that Rene Sepulveda and Chris Edwards have developed of telling a story that inspires and teaches lessons among the pages. Similar to their collaborative work Coach Sepulveda which rekindled my belief in the athletes and the coaches that make up interscholastic sports.  This book set out a plan to put 2 quality hours back into ones life and reacquaint oneself with self and family. Buy this book to learn and gain back a sense of self” – James Anderson, The Rushed North American Independent
