Cheesy Problem

Amidst all the furor over baseball playoffs, Hurricane Patricia, shootings and stabbings comes this, an issue that must be resolved:

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania manufacturer is accused of selling imitation Parmesan and Romano cheese that actually contained other cheeses, including cheddar and Swiss.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports ( ) Universal Cheese & Drying Inc. and International Packing LLC were charged Tuesday with conspiracy.
Prosecutors say the cheeses labeled as "real" Parmesan and Romano didn't conform to U.S. Food and Drug Administration standards and contained trims of other cheeses.
Michelle Myrter, president of Castle Cheese Inc. and a corporate officer in both of the other companies, is charged with the misdemeanor of aiding and abetting the introduction of misbranded and adulterated food.
Her attorney, Stephen Stallings, says Myrter has a plea agreement that involves probation for her and $500,000 in restitution and forfeitures for each of the companies.

USS Albuquerque

The USS Albuquerque is headed for the dry dock.

Decommissioning for the ship is just around the corner.

A number of Albuquerque folks have been on board the "boat" since she was commissioned in 1983.

Among them, Connie Beimer.

On this Throwback Thursday, here are a couple of photos from that visit as "the boat" was docked in Florida.

City of Albuquerque Election

One of the great gems of Albuquerque and New Mexico is the Rio Grande Biopark - which includes the zoo, aquarium and botanic gardens.

Congratulate yourself, Albuquerque voters, who approved the miniature little tax that goes into effect next July to help build the zoo into an even bigger and greater thing.

By voting yes on the little ol' tax that none of us will even realize is there, the voters have once again said, good job at the zoo!

We also approved massive capital outlay proposals for roads, bridges, and other things like that.  It should have been 4 times bigger. Our companies need the business and people need the jobs that result from these projects.

Who says government doesn't create jobs?

Relax - enjoy the zoo!   It's worth every penny!
