  •  NEW YORK (AP) — The race for the best original song Oscar is a slim one with two songs up for the honor, a first for the Academy Awards.
    Sergio Mendes’ “Real In Rio” from the animated adventure “Rio” will compete with Bret McKenzie’s “Man or Muppet” from “The Muppets,” despite having songs from a bevy of all-star musicians like Elton John, Mary J. Blige, will.i.am and Pink in contention for nomination.
    Charles Bernstein, the former chairman of the Academy Awards’ music branch, says he “personally was surprised” that only two songs are up for the honor.

  • Pajarito Environmental Education Center and Petra McDowell will offer a gentle family snowshoe outing under the (almost) full moon at 4:30 p.m.
    Feb. 4.
    The hike will start at the lodge at Pajarito Mountain and is free and open to the public. Snowshoes can be rented from the Walkup Aquatic Center.
    Snowshoeing is a sport that even the youngest trekkers can enjoy. And when better to take to the snow than when it’s glinting in the light of a full moon?
    McDowell will lead families up the Sherwood Forest Trail to the top of the beginner lift and down the road to Camp May, where they’ll gather around a campfire to share books and hot chocolate.
