What's Vista

Nueva all about?

by Jason Radojits

My school was created in 1998. Back then it was just called "Aztec Alternative High School," and we were just a bunch of kids in trouble with no where else to go. Today we are called Vista Nueva, which in Spanish means "New View." Just like any school we have a philosophy and ours is," We believe that all students can achieve educational success in a learning enviroment that is nurturing, stimulating, and aligned developmentally to students' abilities."

How to use your

IRS rebate check

As you may have heard, each of us will be getting a tax check to stimulate the economy. If we spend the money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China. If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs. If we purchase a computer it will go to India. If we purchase a good car it will go to Japan. If we purchase fruits and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala. If we purchase useless stuff it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy. We need to keep that money here in America. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it at yard sales, since those are the only businesses still in the US.

Museum offers

50th for 50 cents

Relive the community spirit that captured Aztec for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of building the Navajo Dam Road. Aztec Museum will host a special display with the original 1964 LOOK magazine highlighting Aztec as winner of the All American Cities award. See photos of community members building the road, women who pitched in by serving lunches, and Jack Campbell and dignitaries at the opening celebration. Poems, remnants of Aztec's display at the New York World's Fair, and memorabilia will show off what happened when this small community wouldn't wait for the government to build a tourist road and did the job itself, garnering the National Municipals League's title All America Cities. The Museum is offering a special admission of 50 cents for the 50th celebration all day Saturday May 4th.
