You Oughta Be in Pictures

by Deb Keller

Old Mountain Viewers, join us in making videos, taking advantage of our local cable access facilities at KMVT. It’s fun, and it’s easy.

You’ll be part of a crew of 10 behind the scenes. Because the crew is broken down to 10 discrete tasks, each job is simple. There’s no commitment: you can participate whenever it’s convenient for you. To be on a crew, you will need to take a three-night course at KMVT at a cost of $85.

In addition, you can take a course on some new hi-def cameras KMVT just purchased. Once you’ve completed the course, you can use the hi-def camera, tripod, Lowell light kit and mic for just $40/day (as long as you’re using it for the public access shows).

Notes from the Chair: Year-End Review of Events

by David Lewis, Chair, OMVNA

January was the month for a new event, the brainchild of Deb Keller and Carter Coleman–OMNVA New Year’s Eve parties.  They organized it and got the use of many houses, even one with baby-sitting for our residents with kids.  Those who signed up for the event went from house to house celebrating the New Year with old neighbors and friends and meeting new ones while their children had a New Year’s party as well.

April 5 brought a mixer at Scratch.  Max Houser, Manny Ramirez, and Glenda Crespo organized the event.  Over 30 OMVNA residents came to see this new, hot, Mountain View restaurant so convenient to OMVNA.

Guide to City Hall

by Julie Lovins

A great way to tour City Hall is to visit www.mountainview.gov.  But it’s very worthwhile to visit City Hall in person. Walk in the main door of the building, near the back of the plaza.  Next, look up!
