In the Community
The state’s big auction of unclaimed property from abandoned safe deposit boxes is set for Saturday and online bidding has already started, but a number of those unclaimed keepsakes have been pulled off the auction block because they’re not “unclaimed” anymore. The state has gotten eight claims for unclaimed property in the last week alone, that’s more than it typically receives in a year. Some of the claimed items include a seven pound gold bar, a personally inscribed pocket watch and a wedding ring and necklace. The unclaimed property supervisor says – sales like these are bittersweet – because some of these items are part of someone’s family history.
Some pre-schoolers in Albuquerque have gotten to learn something a little different. How to grow a community garden, with the help of Americorps Volunteers. Kids at “Cuidando Los Ninos” planted fruits and vegetables at their location on Walter St. in the southeast. They learn where food comes from and it provides their families with fresh fruits and veggies. The mission of “Cuidondo de los Ninos” is to provide early education for homeless children and help their families get back on their feet.
The baby alligator found in Santa Fe yard has a new home at a Colorado sanctuary. The 2-foot-long gator was discovered in a backyard last week It’s mouth had been taped shut. And it was starving. But now the gator is living at the Colorado Gator Farm” near Alamosa. Police believe it was someone’s pet. If the owner is found they could face animal cruelty and illegal exotic pet charges.
