The Palominas School
District Board as it met on the evening of February 6, 2001, at Coronado
School. The members conduct a most orderly, friendly, and
effective meeting, and were kind enough to provide a brief recess to
allow me to take the picture of the well deserving students on the left.
The board members are: Liz Jones, Debbie Greer, Martie Payne, Vicky
Pickett, and Bo Hall. In addition to parents and other folks from
the community, also at the meeting were Kathy Moore ( District
Superintendent), Dee Puff (Administrative Assistant for District
Functions, Curriculum and Assessment), Alice Anderson (Principal of
Coronado School), Mark Schuttner (Principal of Palominas School),
Martin Ellsworth (Principal of Valley View School), and Lucinda Carberry
from the District Office.

Hey folks, don't be bashful about asking me to post some of your
photos of local scenes, sunsets, sunrises, and family. Photos that are
already in digital form (say, taken with a digital camera or previously scanned)
can be attached to an email and sent along with a description, or photographic prints
can be safely scanned and returned to you. If you have slides, I can arrange to
have these scanned also.
Some of the people and places of
Palominas you should get to know!

several telescopes, including one with a 20" mirror that shows
fantastic views of the night skies. The observatory is owned by Doug
& Jean Snyder, and is open free of charge to the public. This
picture shows the roof rolled off to the north, which then opens the
observatory interior to the beautiful Palominas sky. To the right are
Doug & Jean & good buddy, Worf.
||Here is a recent picture
of (almost) Moonset in the west while the Sun was just rising in the
east. This was taken just outside of the Palominas Observatory after a
long night of neat stargazing.
||We are very fortunate, and proud, to have many
residents who love and own horses, and the land available to ride
them. Here are two young ladies out for an afternoon ride in
'downtown' Palominas after a long day in school. We find Erin, on
the left, atop alabaster Casper, and Angie, on the right, with her
trusty steed, Nugget.
I'll be out looking for more riders along the back roads of Palominas,
so keep those horses groomed!
