  • Esta Lee Albright will give an interactive talk on her work with orphaned sea otters in California at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. The talk is free for Pajarito Environmental Education Center members and $5 per family for non-members.
    Albright will discuss some of the problems and challenges that arise when wild animal habitats intersect with human habitats, and what happens when an animal species needs help. Albright was a volunteer “otter mom” for 14 years in the sea otter rehabilitation program at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which was one of the first centers to raise a wild orphan sea otter successfully.  

  • The Spanish Colonial Arts Society announces the receipt of a grant from the Harry Chapin Foundation to support the educational programs of the society, according to Donna Pedace, executive director of the society.
    The grant from the Harry Chapin Foundation will be used to support the Arts Outreach Program, which is a school-based program where the society sends Spanish Market artists into the local public schools to teach hands-on art workshops to either fourth or seventh grade students.
    These workshops are scheduled at the request of individual schools and teachers and, for many, these are the only art classes the students receive.

  • “Life isn’t fair to me, even if I’m doing what I’m supposed to do. What’s up with that?” — Les

    This is the heart cry of many of us who believe that “being treated fairly” is, well … only fair. An objective glance at human history and a survey of ongoing, widespread suffering in this broken world, however, confirms the observation that human existence is “naturally” inclined toward unfairness.
    Perhaps we ought to be glad that we experience anything good at all.
    According to scripture, God had a good plan from the beginning (Gen. 1-2), apparently intending for humans to live in Edenic bliss. We, unfortunately, tend to mess things up (Gen. 3).

  • Keith Richards said in his autobiography “Life,” that Bobby Keys is “my closest pal. A soul of rock ’n roll, a solid man and also a depraved maniac.”
    Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series Promoter Russ Gordon, hopes that interests folks because Keys is playing with his New Mexico band, the Attitudes, Friday at Los Alamos National Bank. The show is free and starts at 7 p.m.
