The Children's Hour, Sat 12/1 9a: In our ongoing series on civics education, we’re joined by Bernalillo County Treasurer Nancy Bearce. Aside from collecting property taxes, what does a treasurer do, and how does that work impact every person in the district, including kids?  It’s all in an hour, The Children’s Hour airs Saturdays from 9 to 10am on KUNM.
