  • “I heard someone say recently that ‘God likes sports because they teach character.’ Another person countered, ‘God doesn’t like sports because they foster violence and idolatry.’ What would the Bible say to this argument?”—Adrian

    As with many current issues, the Bible doesn’t make a straightforward value statement on “sports.” Most of the New Testament was written just prior to — and during the time of — the great Roman spectacles (the Coliseum was built circa AD 70-80.) The Greek Olympic games had obviously been around much longer, perhaps as early as the 8th Century BC.

  • The competition for the 2012 Dog Jog Logo Contest was tough, but after sorting through what was thought to be the most entries seen in years, one submission stood out.
    Kaylee Rogers, a fourth grader at Barranca Elementary School created the winning design for the 2012 Dog Jog Logo contest.
    Rogers said she entered the contest because she likes to draw and thought it would be fun to enter, but was inspired by her dog Penny.
    Rogers and her family adopted Penny from the Santa Fe Animal Shelter more than a year ago. In addition to her interest in drawing, Rogers also like arts, music and baton twirling.

  • After many hours of practicing, nine young, aspiring Los Alamos pianists were prize winners in the annual Santa Fe Sonata Contest Feb. 4 in Santa Fe.
    Students competed among a total of 40 contestants for their trophy awards. Overall, the contest has 10 levels of required compositions, with each student within a level performing the same work. A panel of three judges from Las Cruces, Albuquerque and San Francisco were the adjudicators. Along with others from Los Alamos, contestants from Santa Fe, Las Vegas, El Rancho and Taos also participated.

  • The Family YMCA is taking registration for its free Diabetes Education and Prevention program.
