     Think art is just a pretty painting or sculpture? Look beyond the surface – there is so much more to learn than what can be gathered at first glance.

    Barbara Olins Alpert, author of “The Creative Ice Age Brain: Cave Art in the Light of Neuroscience,” will give further insight into Ice Age art during her upcoming presentation at 7 p.m. Thursday at Mesa Public Library. The presentation is part of the Authors Speak series.

  • Giving youth wings

    This week I spent some time with some pretty insightful students. Mrs. Romero’s Life Smarts class at Los Alamos High School was gracious enough to have me over to speak about Assets.

    It actually turned into a well rounded discussion about youth. We discussed how they can contribute to decisions that affect their community.

    As adults we need to give serious thought to seeking input from groups of average students. By average students, I’m not talking about education, finances or anything that has a connotation of being less than great.

    Samhan played the game of his career on basketball's biggest stage, finishing with 32 points and seven rebounds to lead 10th-seeded Saint Mary's past Villanova 75-68 on Saturday and on to Houston for the South Regional's Sweet 16.
