History of Ranching today, holiday closures this weekend, and turkey safety

Join Dr Cynthia Orozco this afternoon at 4pm for a history lesson on Ranching in Lincoln County.  This is part of an 8-piece series of programs throughout the county this Fall.

Ruidoso Public Library will be closed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for Thanksgiving, November 28-30.  We will re-open Monday, December 2, at 9 am.

Remember Butterball has answers for any food emergencies Thursday. Visit   Or call 1-800-Butterball (800-288-8372). You may also need to visit Reader's Digest's collection of turkey bloopers to gain a sense of perspective, too.

Better yet, pre-plan your feast with these tips (what to buy, how to thaw, how to brine, etc).

My dad was a volunteer firefighter for 25 years; please help firefighters  spend their holidays at home with family by watching this William Shatner narrated video by State Farm or reading these tips on how to deep fry your turkey.  If the video does not load, the link is  The Tips are:

Safe Turkey Frying Tips

1: Avoid oil spillover--don't overfill the pot.

2: Turn off flame when lowering the turkey into oil.

3: Fry outside, away from the house.

4: Properly thaw the turkey before frying.

5: Keep a grease-fire-approved extinguisher nearby.  (Here's an explanation of a class K extinguisher.)
You will also need to know how to use the extinguisher: read pages 3 and 6 here:
