When Athalia Jones showed up for her 99th birthday party at the Center for Spiritual Living last month, assistant minister Andrew Groves asked her how she was.
“Every time I see her,” he said of the petite and bespectacled Jones, “when I ask how she is, she says, ‘I am so happy to be here.’ That’s just who she is – just happiness to be wherever she is, happiness to be on the planet, and I think that’s a mutual thing: she brings that out in everyone.”
The party there was one of three birthday celebrations for Jones, one of the oldest living black New Mexicans, the oldest living black graduate of the University of New Mexico and a member of the black women’s organization, Home Circle, which celebrated its 100th year of service this year.
Jones was born in Roswell, went to high school and college in Albuquerque, lived in California with her husband for more than half a century, and then, 15 years ago, came home to New Mexico.

SCIENCE AND THE ENVIRONMENT: Voting 237 for and 190 against, the House on Nov. 19 passed a Republican bill (HR 4012) that would negate specific rule-makings by the Environmental Protection Agency unless all data from underlying scientific studies – including any confidential health information about participants – have been made publicly available so that the studies can be independently replicated.
Republicans said the bill would promote much-needed transparency at the EPA, while Democrats said it would thwart enforcement actions because many environmental studies depend on protecting the privacy rights of participants.
Democrats said the bill’s main targets are studies by the American Cancer Society and Harvard University that link air pollution with ill health and underpin the EPA’s administration of the Clean Air Act.
A yes vote was to approve the bill.

You’d be right if you said the atmosphere was electric in the Highland High School gymnasium in Albuquerque on Saturday as aspiring automotive engineers from close to 30 middle schools from across the state competed in the New Mexico Electric Car Challenge.
Some 46 teams took part in a race, design competition and oral presentation as part of the event intended to “present science and math concepts to students in a fun and exciting way,” organizers said.
Teams received a lithium-ion battery and direct-current motor to power the vehicles, as well as a car kit containing a chassis, wheels and gears.
The students experimented with different body styles and materials to improve the performance of their cars on a 10-meter track, an event news release read.
The Car Challenge is presented by Sandia and Los Alamos labs, PNM, APS, Intel, the Air Force Research Laboratory and Northrop Grumman.
