    CATS
    Aztec — A 14-week-old, male, gray tabby with white paws and tummy. When he was just getting used to humans, he was cautious and preferred to watch as his more outgoing siblings explored their new territory. Now he is right in the middle of things. He seeks out your attention with a sweet little meow and has a soft, gentle purr when you pet him. He would probably do best in a quieter home where he can feel confident and loved.

  • Black Mesa Winery in Velarde received top honors at the 15th Jefferson Cup Invitational Wine Competition held last month. Three of its wines placed in the top 95 wines in the competition, two of which were given the competition’s top award. There were more than 700 wine submissions from the 26 states that were invited to participate in the 2014 event. This year is the first time a New Mexico Winery was invited to the competition.
    Awards in the top 95 category are the equivalent of Double Gold medals in other competitions. Black Mesa’s winning wines were the 2012 Burd Vineyard Montepulciano, the 2011 New Mexico Cabernet Sauvignon and their Cosecha Ultima, a late harvest dessert wine made with grapes from the Las Parras Vineyard in Abiquiu. The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cosecha Ultima also were chosen for the competition’s highest award, the Jefferson Cup. Their fourth submission, the 2011 Coyote, received the Jefferson Cup Award of Merit.
    Black Mesa has received notable awards in other recent international competitions, receiving multiple “Best in Show,” “Best in Class,” “Platinum” and “Diamond” awards, as well as numerous Double Golds.

  • 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.
