There will be two Bond Issues on the November ballot, Bond B and Bond C. General Obligation Bond B will provide needed funding with NO TAX increase for Academic, Public, School, and Tribal libraries in New Mexico. Since 2002, New Mexico voters have passed statewide bond issues, helping libraries meet increasing demands for materials upgrades and internet services. NMSU-A’s Townsend Library has used these funds in the past to: replace aging VHS resources with DVDs, add nursing and history books, computers, bar code scanners, desktop document scanners for interlibrary loan services, CDs to support the Fine Arts program, and replace audiocassette books with books on CD. To learn details on how Bond B will aid New Mexico libraries, go to: bondsforlibraries.org .
Higher Education Bond C is a bond issue on the 2012 general election ballot that allocates money to improve the aging facilities of New Mexico colleges and universities, again with NO TAX increase. Many of our institutions of higher learning are in desperate need of repairs and renovations to continue to provide a higher standard of education. Many aging structures need to replace rapidly degrading roofs, heating and cooling systems, weak and worn electrical systems…the list goes on. Investing in our institutions of higher learning keeps our brightest students in New Mexico, creates a better workforce, and attracts better paying jobs, all of which positively affect our economy. Simply put, better education affects every single New Mexican. If Education Bond C passes, NMSU Alamogordo will receive $1,000,000 for sorely needed repairs and renovations. If Education Bond C passes, we dramatically improve the quality of life in New Mexico. For more information about this Bond issue, go to: educationbondc.com.
You don’t have to be in school or enrolled in a college or university to care about education. We all have a stake in these issues because New Mexico needs quality institutions and resources that provide education and training in up-to-date facilities. In turn, this attracts and keeps quality businesses and employees which offer high-paying jobs and careers to our residents. Everybody wins!

NMSU-A Theatre Guild is sponsoring Celia in a benefit concert on Saturday, October 6, at 7:30 pm at the Rohovec Theatre. The performance will help provide scholarships for NMSU-A Theatre Students. Advance tickets are $12 and are available at The Blue Stone and TLC Portraits in the White Sands Mall. Tickets will also be available at the theatre box office the evening of the performance for $15.
Singer/Songwriter/Comedienne Celia has been described as “A cross between an Earthy Enya, Joan Baez, and Tina Fey.” She dishes up the most delicious concoction of the silly and sacred delighting audiences across the nation. In addition to having the kind of silky smooth voice often associated with classic Celtic Singers, such as “Celtic Woman”, Celia excels at comedy. She often transforms right on stage into one or more of her alter-egos-whose antics typically leave the audience howling with laughter. With powerful, heart-felt vocals and wacky comedic improvisations, the audience never knows what will happen with Celia on stage.
Celia often uses sophisticated “looping” technology to perform duets, trios, and even larger ensembles with herself. Nothing is pre-recorded. She lays down a track then using the looping technology harmonizes with herself — all live and in real time. The result is an amazing listening experience for the audience.
Celia is from Wisconsin and calls Prescott, AZ home. She is currently touring with her 9th album, “For The Asking”. Other releases include Red, Alabaster, and Blue, Breathe, Fire in the Head, Irish Tales, The Bard of Armagh: A Tribute to Tommy Makem, Naughty in Pink (The Trestle Foote Faerie) and Live at the Rock N Soul Café. No matter how many times you think you’ve seen Celia, you can never predict what she will do and how deeply she can reach into the soul of an audience.
Celia’s range of styles and entertainment is far more than a concert. It is more like a full Cabaret.
