Five seats on the CNM Governing Board are up for re-election early next year, said Director of Marketing and Communications Brad Moore.
The seats for Districts 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7 will be open, and hopeful candidates must file with the Bernalillo County Clerk’s Office by Tuesday, Dec. 18.
“The Governing Board approves all new programs in the college, and has the final say for eliminating programs. They set the tuition and fees for students and oversee many financial aspects of the school,” said Moore.
Members of the Governing Board are elected officials and are not CNM employees, said Moore. Their decisions can have a profound effect on the lives of students, and students should be aware of who is running and what their goals are, he said.
The Box and Cardboard Playhouse Theater Company will be hosting a fundraiser to raise money for productions to play throughout 2013, said Film Technician graduate and President of The Box Board of Directors Carissa Mitchell.
The Dec. 15 fundraiser will be held at Art Bar, formerly Jazzbah on Gold Street, with live performances and food, she said.
“At this time of year we are looking for some charitable donations. We try to really come from a place of strength. It’s an important thing to have theater that’s available for everyone to see,” she said.
The Cardboard Playhouse is important because it is an efficient and affordable alternative outlet for children to be involved, she said.
Ringing in the New Year with a small group of friends is a classic New Year’s Eve tradition; all that is needed is a friend with a T.V. and a few bottles of champagne. Here are some other options for a night out.
Burt’s Tiki Lounge
Red Light Cameras
Never a cover
313 Gold Ave. SW Albuquerque, NM 87102
Burt’s Tiki Lounge is the local, trusty dive bar.
They will be hosting a fairly mellow night with live bands and dancing.
The best part, there is never a cover and the drinks are reasonably priced.

“Cool Classes” is a feature which focuses on an interesting program or class at CNM. To nominate a class or program, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students will have the opportunity to learn about the history of China, Japan and Korea from the beginning of recorded history to A.D. 1600, said part-time History Instructor Stephen Vann.
CRN 2196, East Asia to 1600, will be offered in the spring term and will educate students in the culture and lifestyle of historical Asia. It will also give CNM the honor of being one of a handful of higher educational facilities that offers courses on Asian history, he said.
“It is mostly a lecture course since it is a history class, but we will be studying plays, doing research projects and learning all kinds of cool stuff from East Asia,” he said.
The clothing drive to be hosted by the Job Connection Center, featured in the article ”Job Connection Center to host clothing swap” is not only a wonderful resource for the CNM community, but it also provides a glimpse of the income gap among faculty and staff versus members of the administration.
In the article, President Kathie Winograd is praised for donating her and her husband’s old clothing items. The seeming awe that maintenance workers can get their hands on suits that Winograd used to own is insulting.
It is nice that there is a drive and that Winograd donates, but it is insulting to faculty and staff for them to have to rummage through the old clothes of Kathie Winograd. Staff and faculty should be able to afford the nice clothing they need.
