Wednesday morning briefing: Local redistricting, storing chilies and the last great Red Sox

Good morning. It’s the Freedom New Mexico Wednesday briefing:

Meetings watch

Curry County Commissioners are expected to make their final decision Thursday in redistricting.

The meeting is at 9 a.m. in the Clovis-Carver Library North Annex.

The decision could place two incumbents in the same district — pitting them against each other in local elections next year.

The meeting is open to the public.

Way to go

There’s a Cannon Appreciation Day event 4 p.m.-7 p.m. Friday at Cannon Meadows West University Drive in Portales.

Kitchen tip

While storing green chilies, remove the stems. This will help the chilies to stay fresh for a longer time.

Today in history

On this day in 1941, Boston Red Sox’s Ted Williams plays a double-header against the Philadelphia Athletics on the last day of the regular season and gets six hits in eight trips to the plate, to boost his batting average to .406 and become the first player since Bill Terry in 1930 to hit .400.
