  • CHICAGO — There were no free cars or vacations. No favorite things or makeovers. No celebrity guests on stage — though there were plenty in the audience.
    The finale of Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, taped Tuesday and aired Wednesday, was all about the one thing that made her a billion-dollar success: the unique connection she made with millions of viewers for 25 years. In what she called her “love letter” to fans, she made clear that to her, all those TV friendships went both ways.
    “Something in me connected with each of you in a way that allowed me to see myself in you and you in me,” Winfrey said. “I listened and grew, and I know you grew along with me.”

  • Natali Steinberg, docent of the Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve, is offering her guided tour of this ecological treasure, leaving from Pajarito Environmental Education Center at noon June 5.  
    This small preserve, located near Rancho de las Golondrinas just south of Santa Fe, has several ecological niches, ranging from scrub desert to the lush vegetation of the cienega (Spanish for “marsh”). Consequently, this area supports a wide diversity of plant and animal life. Three trails, one of which is handicap-accessible, lead walkers through these areas, including open meadows, shady cottonwoods and a pond bordered by cattails.

  • The Los Alamos Monitor has the inside scoop on what locals are reading. Otowi Station issued a current list of  popular books for Los Alamos readers.

  • The Society for American Archaeology defines archaeology as the systematic study of human cultures through material remains.  
    The archaeological challenge is to learn about the past through the study of artifacts and the places people lived. Learn about a display of New Mexico archaeological artifacts from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. June 8 during the “Hands On Archaeology Exhibit”  in the Mesa Public Library portal.
    Nearly 160,000 officially recorded sites currently represent the ever-growing New Mexico archaeological record.

  • Football star is new ‘Dancing’ champ 

    LOS ANGELES — Hines Ward added a disco-ball trophy to his Super Bowl shelf Tuesday night after he samba-ed his way to the “Dancing With the Stars” championship.
    The Steelers wide receiver and former Super Bowl MVP won the title, besting actresses Kirstie Alley and Chelsea Kane to become the season 12 champ.
    “You are the MVP of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ season 12,” judge Carrie Ann Inaba said after Ward and professional partner Kym Johnson finished their last dance. “You learned how to lead the dancing, not only in the dance, but you led your partner out of injury. You dance with heart and it shows.”

  • Otowi Station Bookstore and Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation have partnered to present a summer read-a-thon to benefit the literacy programs of the LAPS Foundation.
