New Mexico State University’s Grant County Cooperative Extension Service will offer a free six-week Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP) starting on October 11. Developed and tested by Stanford University and now offered by NM Dept. of Health’s Paths to Health NM, the DSMP, for adults who have type 2 diabetes has been proven to improve health and quality of life for adults with diabetes and pre-diabetes.

The DSMP helps adults with diabetes learn how to manage and improve their health through interactive workshop sessions focusing on problems that are common to individuals dealing with diabetes. Throughout the six weeks, participants focus on building skills to manage their conditions by sharing experiences and providing mutual support. Topics include monitoring blood glucose levels, healthy eating, physical activity, stress management, relaxation, medication use, difficult emotions, problem solving and communicating with doctors.

SUPPORT AMERICA’S HEROES: Wounded Warriors Cycle Across America to Raise Awareness for Veteran Issues Soldier Ride® is a nationally recognized veteran bike ride that inspires warriors to connect with each other and their communities, while providing the American public an opportunity to honor their service and sacrifices.

The adaptive cycling program began in 2004 when civilian Chris Carney cycled more than 5,000 miles coast-to-coast to support Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) and help raise awareness for injured veterans. The following year, several combat warriors who returned from Operation Enduring Freedom with visible and invisible injuries joined Chris for another cross-country ride.

The Silver City/Southwest New Mexico Branch of AAUW invites members, visitors and potential members to its September 23 Kick Off meeting at The Conservatory of Dance Studio, 2020 Cottage San Rd. from 2-4:30 p.m.. Light refreshments and entertainment will be provided. Join in celebrating the Branch’s 80th anniversary! The calendar of events, projects and programs for the year will be presented.

Early in September 1938, 11 women gathered and organized the Grant County Branch, which is now the Silver City Branch. Over the years the Branch has been an active advocate for woman’s and girls’ issues. The official date of the anniversary is October 27. In celebration of the Anniversary the Silver City Public Library will have display cases for AAUW during the months of September and October.

New Mexico is listed last among the states when it comes to education. This ongoing insult to our children and disaster for our future will be the topic of the Grant County Democratic Party’s next “Third Thursday Public Forum.”

At 5 pm on Thursday, September 20 at the WNMU Miller Library, a distinguished panel of educators and political leaders will grapple with this critical challenge to our state and county in a roundtable discussion that will include public participation.

State Senator and candidate for Lieutenant Governor Dr. Howie Morales will headline the panel. Morales, who has a PhD in education and has been an educator himself, has been deeply engaged in debating education policy during the past eight years, often clashing strongly with Gov. Martinez’s reliance on testing and attempts to pin responsibility for problems on teachers and staff.

bikersA group of 18 bicyclists and their support vehicle will arrive in Silver City on Thursday, September 20 and explore our community on the 21st as they continue their 3070 mile 53-day ride from San Diego, CA to St. Augustine, FL. First Presbyterian will host the group, providing a place to sleep and dinners both Thursday and Friday.
