    So when Monika Teter connected with a first-pitch change-up in the sixth inning and she felt no sting at all, she knew the ball was going somewhere.
    “That felt really good,” Teter said. “That’s one of those hits you don’t feel a thing. I’ve had those stings with hitting, but that felt good.”
    Late in Wednesday’s game at Overlook Park, with the temperature dropping and the sparkle rising in the favor of the Española Valley Sundevils, Teter gave her team a much-needed lift.

  • Meet Gronk at the Santa Fe Opera

    It is unusual to have an artist paint a complete set for an opera, but that is exactly what Los Angeles Chicano artist Gronk is doing during the month of April.  He is in residence in the Opera’s Stieren Hall, creating the visuals for this summer’s production of Vivaldi’s “Griselda.”  
    As director Peter Sellars explains, “I don’t know what he is going to do, I have not told him anything.  When an artist paints, he creates a special environment in which the singers will perform.”  Gronk prepared the set for the 2005 production of Golijov’s “Ainadamar,” covering the walls and the floor with his singular perspective on the opera.
