Luna:  Reflections on Change

Luna News
By Kaye Mindar

My Dad always taught me that the only thing I could ever count on was change. It seems that along with the fall colors beginning to show on the mountain side, I am personally experiencing major changes in co-workers, friends, and my family’s lives. Sometimes the pace is difficult to keep up with. Sometimes the changes are not so welcome. Autumn has always been my most favorite time of year and I feel it is nothing short of a gift from Heaven. Seeing the rich autumn colors take over here in the Luna valley and the feel of the cooler, crisp air of the morning hours; you cannot help but feel an inner peace among the change in the seasons and it is easier to take the deep breath I need to just go with it.
Fire Department
Oct. 3 through 9 is fire prevention week and our Luna volunteer fire district and Catron County Fire will be sponsoring an open house on Saturday. Watch for flyers and more information for the time. Mark your calendars to come to the fire station and participate. There will be a bounty of safety information, door prizes, refreshments and fun. For more information you can contact Eugene Snyder: Luna Fire Chief, fire department Secretary: Idonna Bradford or the department members at large.
Luna Community Center
The Catron County Health Counsel is sponsoring a “meet the candidates” night at 5 pm on Oct. 11 at the Luna Community Center. Local candidates have confirmed their invitations and some state representatives will be there for your questions and comments.

Preparedness Corner
In a fire, seconds count.  It could mean the difference between of life or death.  There are many ways a fire can ignite in your home throughout the year. But during the winter months, when we are trying to heat our homes to stay warm, a fire can easily start if proper safety steps are not taken. Clean and maintain your woodstoves, pellet stoves and fire places. If you use a space or Kerosene heater know the safety rules to follow and always follow electrical safety standards. For more information on-line go to and begin to prepare your homes and families for a warm and cozy winter now.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Luna Ward Family History Library is now opened on Saturdays from noon to 5:30 pm, or for help in your home and special appointments you can contact Phyllis Price in Apache Creek.
Quote of the week:
"I think of myself as an intelligent, sensitive human being with the soul of a clown which always forces me to blow it at the most important moments."
