Medicinal Plants and Changing Landscapes of Central New Mexico
Sunday, March 26 from 1-2 p.m. at the Gutierrez-Hubbell House (6029 Isleta Blvd. SW)
Join Dara Saville, co-creator of the current exhibit at the Gutierrez Hubbell House and founder of Albuquerque Herbalism, for this free talk with photographic slideshow, on medicinal plants and landscapes of central New Mexico. We will discuss the properties of some common healing herbs in our area and sample a few herbal remedies. In doing so, we will also explore the local landscapes including the Chihuahua Desert, Sandia Mountains, and the Bosque and see how these dynamic places are evolving and what it means for our selected medicinal plants.

WHAT BURGLARS SAID WERE THE BIGGEST DETERRENTS, WHAT DIDN'T STOP THEM AND HOW YOU CAN PROTECT YOUR HOME
KGW's investigative team sent letters to 86 inmates currently serving time for burglary in the Oregon Department of Corrections. The inmates were asked to respond anonymously to 17 questions detailing how they broke in, when the crime occurred and what they were looking for. What they learned could help you keep your home safe from burglaries. Although the survey was performed in Oregon, CRIME HAS NO BOUNDRIES.

Procedures for Property Owners to Amend their Unit Covenants
The Sandia Heights Homeowners Association (SHHA) cannot modify or change any unit covenants. Any covenant changes or modifications can only be done by the property owners within their individual unit. SHHA recognizes the right of property owners to amend the covenants of their units in accordance with procedures set forth in the covenants of each unit. SHHA has developed information to facilitate that process and to ensure that a proposed amendment is in agreement with established covenants. To avoid potential conflicts with the existing covenants, it is suggested that the proposed amendment(s) be presented to the SHHA Board of Directors for review prior to initiating a petition signature effort.
