I’m heading out to celebrate 30 years of the Laredo Crime Stoppers organization in town. Some guy named Gary Hobbs will be playing. Apparently a few friends are irked when I say that I have no clue who he is – sorry Tejano/Country fans, I need music education of all kinds.
It’s a small event, very law enforcey-type event, but just thought you might want to know that for 30 years, regular joe schmoes have run a group to protect your identity if you have a tip on a crime you might know about and keep winning award after award for their efforts. Good job, eagle eyed Laredoans!
After all that celebrating and dancing (yeah, right – I’ve got two left feet and a cane that stop me), I’m not so sure I will wake up in time for an early morning run at 7am for the Laredo Next Generation Rotary Club’s annual RotaRun. If you are up for it, though, you can even register online and support the Rotary programs the Next Generation club plans.
I kid, though, I will be up that early but I cannot make the RotaRun. I’ll be heading out to learn and meet folks at the San Antonio Historic Home Fair. A ver que.
After I get back, though, I might start putting together my resume.
LareDOS newspaper is looking for a designer ASAP. I would need to brush up on my InDesign & Photoshop skills but… sigh, nevermind, not my field. But it might be just the break some talented Laredoan out there wants. This is the description Cristina sent me:
WE’RE LOOKING FOR A PART-TIME PAGE DESIGNER! LareDOS needs a designer who knows how to use InDesign and Photoshop to do part-time designing of our publication. Work hours pretty flexible, and a nice quiet working environment in downtown Laredo. For more info/to set up an interview, call (956) 791-9950 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The designer chosen won’t ever become filthy rich by working for LareDOS but you can’t beat the satisfaction in being able to contribute to Laredo’s alternative newspaper.
