    The products that will be for sale range from handmade cards and crafts to jerky and fabric items.

  • Art is more than a painting to hang on the wall or a song to listen to on the radio. It can be a tool to change someone’s life.

    A nonprofit organization based in New York, called Unified for Global Healing, puts this belief into practice. The organization, according to its Web site, has a network of physicians, nurses, social workers and artists who work together to provide a direct service, cross-cultural exchange and promote the advancement of global health.

  • Is life sweet? Yes, it is, according to Mike Leigh, the director of the award winning 1991 British film, “Life is Sweet.”  

    This film is not about the genteel Britain of “Upstairs, Downstairs” or Jane Austen, but is a raw, edgy and darkly comedic film about a working class family in contemporary London suburbia.  

  • Sherlock Holmes first appeared in print in 1887. The character’s tremendous popularity led to the publication of four novels and 56 short stories. In December 1893, Arthur Conan Doyle and William Gillette wrote “The Final Problem,” the story in which they killed off the world’s most famous detective, in a fight to the death with his archnemesis, the evil genius Dr. Moriarty. Holmes devotees around the world protested, wore black armbands and begged the author to resurrect their hero. Doyle finally revived Holmes in 1903.

  • This week we take a look at Asset #32, planning and Asset #33, decision making. Earlier this week, I had a call from a parent who had me change my focus for this week.

    I would like to focus on kids who have poor decision-making skills or don’t plan and how we as adults relate to them.

    As adults, we need to help kids take responsibility for their actions, without going down one of two bad paths.

  • Doris Jackson, artist gallery manager at the Art Center at Fuller Lodge, had her eye on a particular pedestal for years. John Werenko, executive director of the Art Center, joked she could have it when she decided to end her employment. On Wednesday she got her  pedestal.

    A recognition party was held Wednesday afternoon at Fuller Lodge to say farewell to Jackson who is leaving her work at the Art Center.

    Jackson started as the artist gallery manager at the Art Center in 2001 but her work with the organization extended well before that.

  • A kaleidoscope of art mediums will be spread throughout the Mesa Public Library’s gallery starting Tuesday.

    The exhibit titled, “All Mixed Up,” will showcase photography, quilting, sculpture and watercolors. The artists behind this artwork are Darlene Bawden, Arleeta Bawden, Cyndy Carter and Garth Tietjen.

    Tietjen said having a range of media should enhance the show.
