Capitan program looks at challenges of bringing education to the frontier
Owen has deep roots in Lincoln County
A program Jan. 28, at the Capitan Public Library will look at the challenges faced by those who brought education to the frontier.
At 2 pm, Tiffanie Owen, Instructional Coordinator for Lincoln and Fort Stanton Historic Sites, will present "Going Old School in Lincoln." Owen has deep roots in Lincoln County. Her great-great grandfather, John Owen, was Sheriff of Lincoln from 1902-1907. Some of her relatives attended one of the first schools in Lincoln, one now the Lincoln Community Church. That association, combined with being a third-generation teacher, inspired Owen to create her schoolmarm persona.
The building of a school in a frontier town signified that the "Wild West" was becoming a little less wild. Owen's slideshow presentation introduces the audience to the challenges of bringing education to the American frontier. Schoolmarm Owen will share the trials and tribulations of both teachers and students in these early days of education. It's hard to say whether these stories will make the audience grateful for the conveniences of schools today or long for the educational techniques of days gone by.
Owen also is the Volunteer Coordinator for Lincoln and Fort Stanton Historic Sites. For information on becoming a volunteer or scheduling a tour or a classroom visit, email her at Tiffanie.Owen@state.nm.us or call 575-653-4025.
Refreshments will be provided after the presentation. For more information call Capitan Public Library at 575-354-3035. The library is at 101 E. Second St. in Capitan. Library hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday; 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday and Saturday, closed on Sunday and Monday. .

Carrizozo Music, Inc. presents nationally-renown Portland Cello Project in a free concert at 6 PM on Monday, January 22 at the Carrizozo School Old Gym. The cellists will play a wide variety of music by many different composers from many different points in history, which they will announce and explain from the stage. They will build a unique show for the audience drawing from their repertoire of over 1,000 pieces of music, which means you can expect a performance similar to the Oregon weather: it is likely that whatever is happening at one moment will be completely different just a few minutes later.
In the fall of 2006 a group of 10 cellists got on stage at Portland's Doug Fir Lounge to perform western classical music in an informal setting. Many of the cellists that night thought it would only happen once. But slowly that one-off event became a second, and a third, playing Portland's most popular clubs (Holocene, Mississippi Studios), and by 2009 the group had evolved into a nationally recognized performance and educational group with a revolving cast of cellists, releasing full-length albums, performing everywhere from punk rock clubs to, loading dock street parties, to exclusive private events, and symphony halls all over North America, spending more than a quarter of the year touring, and featuring a diverse repertoire of well over 1,000 pieces of music.
While the group changed and evolved in a hundred different ways over the last decade, the one consistent focus has always been building bridges between different musical communities through collaboration with myriad artists to educational and community outreach at schools and universities around the country. Coming on the New Mexico tour will be all-star cellists Diane Chaplin, Kevin Jackson, Skip vonKuske, Collin Oldham and Lauren McShane. The concert will be followed by a reception and opportunity to meet the musicians.
A school outreach concert will take place at 3 PM, January 22, at the Carrizozo School Old Gym. Both concerts are free and open to the public.
From 4-6 PM, there will be a fundraising dinner to benefit the Culinary Arts Program and the Junior Class Prom Project. The meal will include a choice of posole or vegetarian chili, corn bread, biscochitos, and tea, water or coffee. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Please call Carol Wilson at 575-799-8707 for tickets and information. The meal will be served in the school cafeteria, across the courtyard from the Old Gym. Take-out available.For information about Carrizozo Music, the 2018 season schedule and concert updates please check www.carrizozomusic.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Elaine at 575-648-2757. Carrizozo Music sponsors a series of classical concerts, summer Portico Concerts and school outreach performances and workshops with a commitment to providing free quality music to the residents of Lincoln County and the surrounding area.
Carrizozo School Old Gym is located at 800 D Ave, on the corner of D Avenue and 10th
