A2 THE TAOS NEWS Thursday, Aug. 2,1990 Stress sustainable "Grease" is not the word, Kiddies; "sustainable" is. When I came back to Taos after a three-and-a-half day .Ecology Conference in Berkeley, all the excellent speakers and workshops had me feeling inspired. While environmental problems are serious and must be resolved, the hundred of participants seemed determined to save our planet. Meanwhile I was searching for some way to sum up the conference. When I met with John Kimmey, Director of the Sustainable Native Agricultural Center in San Cristobal, I realized the one word I had heard over and over again at Berkeley was "sustainable." Kimmey, a long-time Taos County resident, is a man with a mission. He wants to save native farming in Northern New Mexico and also contribute to the worldwide "farm crisis." He is deeply troubled that lands used for centuries for subsistence food production are losing irrigation water rights because present owners are no longer cultivating them. ierra Madre He said he is determined to save seeds used for many generations, seeds that breed true and produce offspring that will continue their line. Modern seed companies have developed special hybrid strains that often "produce sensational yields," but, like mules, "they don't have babies." they cannot reproduce themselves so farmers must forever buy seeds from the big companies that produce these hybrids. Additionally, this "high-tech food production" demands chemical fertilization and pesticides. Kimmey said he has traversed Taos County finding viable seeds 20 or 30-years-old. 'They have been gathering dust on barn shelves ever since Grandpa died."

Penasco's 'El Pite' Sahd dies at 79 "A stalwart New Mexican," "a marvelous family man," "an active public servant" and "a diehard Republican" were some of the ways friends of Pete "El Pite" Sahd described the Penasco merchant on hearing of his death Tuesday (July 31). Sahd died Tuesday morning of complications related to heart disease in Albuquerque's Presbyterian Hospital. He was 79 years of age. Secretary of the Interior Manuel Lujan said University of New Mexico basketball games "will never be the same" without Sahd, a perennia? fan, in the stands. Sahd and Lujan were personal friends and political cronies. Sen. Pete Domenici said Sahd's death was "a great shock." He praised Sahd's public service and said he "supported worthwhile causes for all of the 25 years I knew him." Sahd was part of the third generation of merchants in his family who immigrated from Rpumie, Lebanon to New Mexico. His grandfa- r thef, McPVussu?, tiffe IheWst to'come, settling in Las Vegas. Peter A. Sahd, El Pite's father, moved his general store from Cerrillos to Taos in 1930. ,^ : ; Young Peter was born in Lebanon Jan. 1, 1911, before his mother joined her husband in New Mexico. Both the father and grandfather took goods from their store and worked as traveling peddlers, providing all the necessities to people in Northern New Mexico's isolated mountain communities. In 1946 the younger Pete opened his own store in Penasco and ran it until his death. In recent years, ^ v •> store's day-to-day manf Cement has been passed to his son, Randy. Trained as a journalist, Pete Sahd worked as a reporter for several years before following in his father's professional footsteps. After opening his store, Sahd began publishing Los Penasqueros, a small newspaper with an irregular publication schedule, dedicated to the happenings in the tiny villages that used Sahd's Store. Sahd was an avid sports fan, a devoted mem- \ ber and officer of University of New Mexico alumni groups and a committed Republican. : Sahd is survived by his wife, Patricia, of Penasco; brother Albert Sahd of Taos; sisters Agnes • MacKaron and Bertha Sahd, both of, Albuquerque; sons Ted Sahd and wife Marti of ^Albuquerque, and Randy Sahd and wife Diane of ; <' Penasco; five grandchildren, -two grea"t-gfand- jj children and an aunt, Clara, Sah,d of| Albuquerque.. , .... <.,..<• '•;....«•.-.». !> A funeral mass is scheduled at 11 a.m. today (Aug. 2) at St. Anthony's Church in Penasco T HE TAOS PUELBO POW WOW COMMITTEE wishes to express our sincere "thanks" and appreciation to the following business, organizations and individuals for contributing to a very successful 6TH ANNUAL TAOS PUEBLO POW WOW: Taos Pueblo Governor - Mike Concha Taos Pueblo Governor's Siaff Taos Pueblo Tourism Office Taos Pueblo Restoration Crew Joe Martinez Taos Pueblo Tourism Monitors Taos Pueblo Police Chief - Reynaldo Lujan Taos Pueblo Tribal Police Officers Taos Pueblo Tribal Administration Staff Taos Pueblo Tribal Administer Joyce Martinez Taos Pueblo TWEP - Bennie Mondragon Taos Pueblo Tribal Works Program David Gomez Taos Pueblo Forestry -Youth Program Taos Pueblo Warchiefs Office Taos Pueblo Volunteer Fire Depl.
