Spanish Heritage Celebration 


Veterans Day:
Jonathan Chairez
Veterans Day was initially known as Armistice Day; the holiday was established to commemorate the end of World War I. In 1938, Armistice Day became a national holiday
dedicated to the world and honoring veterans of World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was officially renamed Veterans Day, expanding to recognize and honor all veterans, not just of World War I. The red poppy flower is often associated with Veterans Day because of the war poem “In Flanders Fields” by Lieutenant Colonel Joh McCrae. The poem describes how poppies grew amidst the graves of fallen soldiers in Flanders (a region in Belgium significantly
affected by World War II). On this Veteran’s Day, the Deming Broadcaster staff would like to thank all veterans for their service, bravery, and dedication to our nation. Happy Veterans Day.

Daylights Saving Time Change
Daylight Savings is a thing that happens every year for almost all of the states. Daylight savings usually start the second Sunday of March every year. Daylight savings ends on the first Sunday of November. Some places do not do daylight saving such as Hawaii, most of
Arizona, and the U.S. territories of American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Daylight savings became a thing in 2005; every state or territory in the U.S. could opt in or out for Daylight Savings. It was created to save energy and use natural daylight. Daylight savings were made to
help the farmers produce more crops with the help of sunlight. Although Daylight Savings is good for farmers, it can affect people just going about their days. Daylight Savings makes you lose an hour of sleep, and when you are back into regular time,
you are not used to it. Daylight saving causes many people to be more tired when time varies twice a year. Some doctors say that Daylight savings increases the risk of cardiac problems such as heart attacks, atrial fibrillation-related hospital visits, and an increase in ischemic stroke. Daylight savings cost about $434 million yearly due to clock changes. It can also increase existing mood disorders such as depression, bipolar, and anxiety, which can cause sleep disruptions. Daylight savings are unhealthy for people, and we should stick to standard time instead of changing twice a year.

National FFA Convention 2023
This year, the 96th annual National FFA Convention was held at the Lucas Oil stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. Where seven general sessions are being held. Rodeos and hypnotist show also follow an expo and shopping mall. At this convention, two of our students, Elizabeth Donaldson and Destiny Ortega, competed in the Agri-Science competition. Where they placed first overall, getting national campions in that category. We also had Emily Gossett from the silver FFA chapter go and run for federal office. She won and represented New Mexico FFA as Western Region Vice President. Congratulations To these girls and their hard work!

Nasa telescope
Two powerful NASA telescopes have detected the oldest and most distant black hole ever found. The discovery was described in a study published Monday in Nature Astronomy journal. The data was captured via energetic X-rays by the Chandra X-ray Observatory. The James Webb Space Telescope has helped astronomers spot the signature of a growing black hole. Within the early universe just 470 million years after the big bang, which occurred 13.8 billion years

The New Mayor of Deming New Mexico
McKenzie Trejo
November 7, 2023, marks the election and a change in the Deming government. Mayor
Benny Jasso has been mayor for eight years, and now, in this 2023 election, he has been beaten
by realtor Michele “Miki” Shillito. Shillito will now be mayor of Deming for a four-year term.
Shillito won the election over former Mayor Benny Jasso by 156 votes. Another change in the
Deming government includes new councilmen of district 1 Stephen Westenhofer, Deming city
councilmen Julian Monjaras, and Mayor of Columbus Philip Skinner.

Should Schools Ban cell phones?
One afternoon last month, hundreds of students at Timber Creek High School in Orlando poured into the campus’s sprawling central courtyard to hang out and eat
lunch. For members of a highly online generation, their activities were decidedly analog.
Dozens sat in small groups, animatedly talking with one another. Others played pickleball on makeshift lunchtime courts. There was not a cellphone in sight — and that
was no accident. In May, Florida passed a law requiring public school districts to impose rules barring
student cellphone use during class time. This fall, Orange County Public Schools — which includes Timber Creek High — went even further, blocking students from using
cell phones during the entire school day. In interviews, a dozen Orange County parents and students said they supported the no-phone rules during class. But they objected to their district’s stricter, daylong ban.
Parents said their children should be able to contact them directly during free periods, while students described the all-day ban as unfair and infantilizing. “They expect us to take responsibility for our own choices,” said Sophia Ferrara, a 12th grader at Timber Creek who needs to use mobile devices during free periods to take online college classes. “But then they are taking away the ability for us to make a choice and to learn responsibility.” Like many exasperated parents, public schools across the United States are adopting
increasingly drastic measures to pry young people away from their cell phones. Lawmakers and district leaders argue that more burdensome constraints are needed because rampant
social media use during school is threatening students’ education, well-being, and physical safety. Other students said school seemed more prisonlike. To call their parents, they noted, students must now go to the front office and ask permission to use the phone. Surveillance has also intensified. To enforce the ban, Lyle Lake, a Timber Creek security officer, now patrols lunch period on a golf cart, capturing students violating the ban and driving them to the front office, where they must place their phones in a locked cabinet for the rest of the school day.

The History of Thanksgiving:
Jonathan Chairez
Thanksgiving, a holiday in the United States and Canada, has its roots in a mix of indigenous traditions and early European settlers in the New World. Before the arrival of the Europeans,Native American  tribes held harvest festivals, expressing gratitude for crops and the Earth’s abundance. The most famous early Thanksgiving occurred in 1621, when the Pilgrims arrived in Plymouth, Massachusetts and celebrated the fall harvest with the Wampanoag tribe. It was not
until the 19th century that Thanksgiving gripped as a nationally recognized holiday. Sarah Josepha Hale, a well-known 19th century writer and editor played a crucial part in advocating for
the national holiday by campaigning writing letters to presidents, and publishing articles. Her efforts were eventually caught the attention of President Abraham Lincoln. So therefore, in 1863, Lincoln proclaimed the final Thursday of November as Thanksgiving, a national holiday. It would be a day of gratitude and prayer. This tradition endured until 1939, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt moved Thanksgiving to the fourth Thursday of November to extend the holiday shopping season during the Great Depression. Today, we gather around our tables with our families each year and honor this tradition by sharing a festive meal. As well as spending time with family hanging out, having fun, and making memories.
