Today's Features

  • On behalf of the cowpokes who had a knee-slapping-good time at Cowboy Night, May 4, the LA Stable Owners Association wishes to thank the wranglers responsible.  
    First up, thanks to Cyndi Wells (Pet Pangaea) and Georgia Strickfaden (Buffalo Tours) for bountiful donations. The home range at the Posse Lodge provided a perfect setting.  At the chow line, Steve Wallin’s chuck wagon and succulent smoked beef made this an up-town rodeo.  
    Beyond the campfire, Kenny’s North Carolina BBQ cooked up some great beans and vittles. In the back 40, Ron Lucero deftly taught young dudes to rope, which was the high score of the evening.

  • Getting the opportunity to play music with a teen idol would be a dream come true for most people. Los Alamos National Laboratory engineer Tom Gattis is no different, only, his dream was realized last spring.
    It all began for Gattis when he and three other guys formed a band in the Baltimore area in the 1980s. Like a lot of musicians, they met through a newspaper ad and once formed, decided to call themselves Deuce.
    Gattis said he was raised on music by Judas Priest, UFO and the Scorpions, as well as classical music, all of which influenced him as a singer.

  • Why is the Orthodox Church ethnic? — M.F.

    Part 1
    The Orthodox Church is not ethnic. However, it is true that a complex history in America has given the impression that it is for certain ethnic groups. This is far from the truth.
    There are many who have never heard of the Orthodox Christian Church. Those who think of it as a place where Greeks or Russians go. It’s eastern, thus too foreign. This is a gross over simplification. To understand we must review history.
    Christ’s saving work occurred in Israel, and thus, the church began in the east. All the ancient Orthodox Churches are the direct descendants and heirs of the ancient Christian gatherings.

  • Join Pajarito Environmental Education Center and the Santa Fe Raptor Center for an evening of owls at 6:30 p.m. June 12 at PEEC, 3540 Orange St.
    Participants will view live owls, learn owl calls and take a walk to listen for owls on the trail.  The event is free to PEEC members and $5 per family for non-members. No registration is required.
    Laura Swartz from the Santa Fe Raptor Center will bring a Barn Owl, Saw-Whet Owl, and a Great Horned Owl to PEEC.  She’ll share information about the owls — how they came to be educational birds and what their lives would be like if they lived in the wild.
