+ 6 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2010 Above, Parents and friends of Southside students were being supportive by watching the Co- lumbus Day play. At left, Ethan Murillo who was Christopher Columbus is ask- ing Valerie Silvas and lan Delgado who were the Queen and King of Spain for money to buy ships and hire sailors for his great adventure. Graders hold Columbus Day Play Courtesy submission On October 12 'h, Mrs. Evertson's 4 th grade students pre- sented a play about Christopher Columbus and his discovery of America. This was a fun way to learn history and the reason for our national holiday. It also 'taught the students about never giving up on their goals and dreams since it took Columbus 6 years to finally get Spain to fi- nance his adventure west. Stu- dent participation in a dramati- zation helps to demonstrate and personalize an awareness of our culture and the reasons behind people's actions and motives. This creative interpretation was well received by the other stu- dents at Southside Elementary and the family and friends of the student actors. ,'arrie Tingley Clinic to visit Silver City Nov. 5 Submitted by UNM/Albuquerque Children in the Silver City area with orthopaedic problems can be scheduled for an outreach clinic on Friday, November 5, 2010 Physicians from Carrie Tingley Hospital at the Univer- Clinic, 114 W." 11 m Street, Silver City, N.M.

Economic boosts Dear Editor, I would like to commend the organizers of the Discover Hidalgo County and the SWNM Finals Rodeo (of which Hidalgo Youth Rodeo Association won) events held in Lordsburg Octo- ber 16, 2010. Both of these events drew a large number of people from all over the state and neighboring states. These two events were excellent opportuni- ties to showcase Lordsburg and Hidalgo County. Discover Hidalgo County and the SWNM Finals were a boost to our economy. Tourism is a major economic source that can be tapped to promote Hidalgo county and Lordsburg. The fami- lies, who participated in these two events, ate in our restaurants, stayed in our motels, shopped in our stores and bought gas in our stations. Many of our local ven- dors were provided the opportu- nity to add two new venues to sell their wares without having to travel to out of ounfy events. Vendors had the opportunity to set up their merchandise at tw0 venues on the same day. Both the individual businesses and city and county government en- tities benefited from the dollars spent in Lordsburg. The people wh o worked hard to bring these events and the people who par- ticipated in the events need a big thank you! Kathy Lee Virden, NM MethamPhetamine... La metanfetamina es una droga estimulante que afecta el sistema nervioso central'y es similar en estructura a la anfetamina. Debido al alto potencial que tiene para el abuse, la metanfetamina esta clasificada come un fitrmaco de la Lista II de acuerdo a la Ley sobre Sustancias Controlades, y se puede obtener s61o per medio de prescripcion mddica no renovable. Aunque los mddicos pueden recetar la metanfetamina, sus uses mddicos son limitados y Ins dosis que se recetan son touche mils bajas que Ins que normalmente se consumen cuando se abusa. La mayoria de la metanfetamina que se abusa en los Estados Unidos viene de stiper laboratories extranjeros y nacionales, aunque tambidn se puede producir en pequefios laborato- ries clandestinos, donde se ponen en peligro a Ins personas que la elaboran, a los vecinos y al medio ambiente. .C6mo se abusa la metanfetamina? La metanfetamina es un polvo blanco, cristalino, indoro y amargo que se disuelve fiicilmante en agua o alcohol y que se puede fumar, , inhaler, inyectar o tomar de forma oral.

As determined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there is no increase in the CPI-W from the third quarter of 2008, the last year a COLA was determined, to the third quarter of 2010, there- fore, under existing law, there can be no COLA in 2011. Other changes that would normally take effect based on changes in the national average wage index also will not take ef- fect in January 2011. Since there is no COLA, the statute also pro- hibits a chahge in the maximum amount of earnings subject to the Social Security tax as well as the retirement earnings test exempt amounts. These amounts will re- main unchanged in 2011. The attached fact sheet provides more information on 2011 Social Se- curity and SSI changes. Information about Medicare changes for 20t 1, when available, will be found at The Depart- ment of Health and Human Ser- vices has not yet announced if there will be any Medicare pre- mium changes for 2011. Should there be an increase in the Medi- care Part B premium, the law con- tains a "hold harmless" provision that protects more than 70 per- cent of Social Security beneficia- ties from paying a higher Part B premium, in order to avoid re- ducing their net Social Security benefit. Those not protected include higher income benefi- ciaries subject to an income-ad- justed Part B premium and ben- eficiaries newly entitled to Part B in 2011. In addition, almost 20 percent of beneficiaries have their Medicare Part B premiums paid by state medical assistance programs and thus will see no change in their Social Security benefit. The state will be re- quired to pay any Medicare Part B premium increase.
