Message from a Neighbor Regarding Littering

I adopted the clean up of Camino de Los Montoyas several years ago to honor my Grandson, Matthew Beaver, (who passed away from cancer in 2009) and his family.  I regularly pick up all roadside trash on Co. Rd. 85.  For the past year, unknown person(s) have been littering Bracs peppermint hard candy wrappers by the dozens each week.  These cellophane wrappers are difficult to pick up in the wind, and needless to say, could be kept in the litter bugs car easily.  The amount of trash discarded on this stretch of road is varied and significant in amount, however the candy wrappers are of particular annoyance.  I would appreciate a reminder to members of the Tano Road Assoc. that littering is a subject that can be self correcting, and attention to littering would be appreciated. Thank you, Glenn Levant

Melinne Owen named a Tano Road Treasure

Long time Tano Road resident Melinne Owen was named a Tano Road Treasure at the Neighborhood Nosh on Saturday, October 13. Melinne is the fourth person to win that award. The award is given by the Tano Road Association for exceptional service to the Tano Road community. Melinne and her husband Paul moved to Tano Road in 1998. This was after Melinne had been a Peace Corps member and taught in China. She is an accomplished artist in her own right and today not only produces art but is a key player in the Folk Art Market here in Santa Fe. Melinne has served the Tano Road community on many levels. She was a Board member and Board President. As a member she was very active in the Water Protest in 2000.  She is also a long term Security Patrol member. The current President, Rich Higgins, values her inciteful advice highly because she has seen it all. Finally, we all enjoy what she and Paul bring to the neighborhood. Thank you and congratulations, Melinne!

Margaret Alexander with Rich Higgins

Margaret and her husband David have lived in our neighborhood for 26 years.  Margaret always loved walking and wanted to help develop trails for people to hike and enjoy this beautiful country.  Today, she is a Board member of the Santa Fe Trails Association and the Santa Fe Conservation Trust, and works closely with the Santa Fe Torture Trail event, the largest bike event in New Mexico.

Margaret continues to travel this land, running six miles three times a week and walking her dogs on the “off” days.

Thank you, Margaret, for all you have done for our community.
