Today's Features

  • Angel Fire Resort received four inches of new snow over the past weekend. The colder temperatures are allowing the resort to continue to make snow as well. Angel Fire opened Dec. 12 and has 25 percent of the mountain open and they expect to open more trails over the next two weeks.

  • Bernalillo County Cultural Services and the Southwest Women’s Law Center announce a call for entry for women artists residing in New Mexico to be featured in an upcoming exhibit “Unconfined: Empowering Women through Art.”
    This art show will feature two-dimensional artwork by the selected women artists, women artists who are detained at Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) and young women at the Juvenile Detention Center (JDC).
    The exhibit will span the month of March in celebration of National Women’s History Month, known locally as Women and Creativity Month.  The art exhibit will be on display at the African American Performing Arts Center Gallery. 
    Presently, women at MDC and young women at JDC are participating in artist led workshops. Through movement, meditation, and hands-on art making, the art classes bring creativity and self-expression into an otherwise barren environment. Each participating artist is asked to share the story behind her artwork.  These stories will be posted alongside the artwork.
    Submission Requirements:
    • Women artists residing in New Mexico are invited to submit their artwork by Jan. 30.
    • Up to three artworks in .jpg format

  • Tourism Santa Fe announces the 2014 Farolito Design Contest open to all current and new followers on the @cityofsantafe Instagram social media platform from now until midnight Christmas Day.
    Contestants who make and photograph their own creative farolito can post the image on Instagram using the city holiday #SantaFeJoy, the city’s ongoing #howtosantafe and the contest #Farolito. They also need to “tag” the Tourism Santa Fe handle “@cityofsantafe” in their post and they’ll automatically be entered to win prize packages from a variety of local hotels, restaurants and cultural attractions.
    The entries will be judged on three qualities: creative design, holiday spirit and image composition. Volunteer judges are Rod Lambert, manager, Tourism Santa Fe Community Art Gallery, Enrique Limón, arts & culture editor, Santa Fe Reporter and Bryan Cooper, production manager, The Santa Fean. Anyone else can be a judge too — a People’s Choice Prize will go to the post that receives the most overall engagement of likes, comments and reposts.
    Winners will be announced on Tourism Santa Fe social media channels Instagram, Twitter and Facebook on Dec. 30, on the contest webpage, and all entries will be “pinned” on the Tourism Santa Fe Pinterest page.

  • The annual Children’s Bazaar was held at the Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church during the Winterfest celebration on Dec. 6.
    Children had the opportunity to shop for gifts for family and friends, while parents relaxed and enjoyed refreshments. Gifts were wrapped free of charge.
    Donations were collected at the church days before the event. Proceeds went to support youth choir members to attend choir camp and support medical clinics through the Episcopal Relief and Development. To read the thank you letter to the community, see page the opinion page. Courtesy

  • The Los Alamos Little Theatre has announced a fundraising effort to support the purchase and installation of an assisted listening system in the Performing Arts Center, the facility in which LALT theatrical productions are staged.
    “We have heard from many patrons over the years that their enjoyment of our productions would be greatly enhanced with an assisted listening system,” said LALT President Gracie Cainelli. “This system generates a signal that can be picked up directly by most hearing aids. They can be found in many facilities in Los Alamos County, such as Fuller Lodge and the Bradbury Science Museum.”
    The system that has been identified for the Performing Arts Center will cost about $3,000 for parts and installation, and will include a limited number of headsets for those without compatible hearing aids.
    “Los Alamos National Bank has committed to provide $1,500 toward the purchase of this system, or about half of what we need,” Cainelli said. LANB’s contribution comes through its community reinvestment program.

  • Recently the Los Alamos Co-op Market welcomes two senior managers to the staff. Jose Peraita has been hired to take on the front end manager position, while Theresa Westfall is taking the reins of deli manager.
    Peraita worked in the deli and has fully embraced the spirit of co-ops in his interactions with customers and staff.
    He will take over as front end manager from Tim Morrison who was part of the original management team. Morrison is leaving the co-op to start graduate school abroad.
    Westfall has restaurant kitchen management experience along with a great attitude and enthusiasm for learning about co-ops, which will help her transition into her role as deli manager.
    She will be attending deli operations training in mid-January to hone her skills and transfer her knowledge of restaurant kitchens to grocery delis.
    The Los Alamos Co-op Market can be found at two locations: 95 Entrada Dr. and inside Fusion Multisport on Central across from CB Fox. Check the website losalamos.coop or call 695-1579 for more information.

  • I needed to write about something positive prior to the winter break.
    Please consider this the final reminder for nominations for the Community Asset Awards are due on Monday.
    This will be the sixth annual event where we recognize all ages, various businesses, clubs and programs that make our community and the world a little better.
    I know this is a busy time of year with finals week, things to bake, picking up, dropping off and the general things associated with daily life.
    It only takes about 10 minutes, five of which could be done thinking about it while you’re in the shower. The other five would consist of you writing a paragraph or two about a deserving nominee, that I read while they stand in front of a crowd of do-gooders.
    You may regret it if you don’t just do it and the boost on their end is not measureable. It is a joyous time, every year.
    So think about who makes this community a better place to live or work. Who is doing something that makes a difference in their school, their community, or the world?
    You can request a form at 695-9139 and yes, I text. I’d even be willing to fill it out for you if you happen to catch me. You can also request a form via email at AssetsInAction@att.net or go online and fill in the blanks at AssetsInAction.info.
