  • It’s not everyday that a guitarist can enter a competition, not make the final cut, but end up walking away with the grand prize. Local teen Joey Farish, 18, did just that during the annual KZRR 94 Rock’s Ibanez Guitar Lick Off.
    The contest, sponsored by radio station 94 Rock and Grandma’s Music and Sound was from 1-3 p.m. Nov. 13 at Grandma’s in Albuquerque. Guitarists from around the state gathered to shred for 60 seconds apiece, in hopes of winning one of three Ibanez guitars.

  • Various arts and craft fairs and shopping opportunities are held during the holiday season where adults can find gifts, but what about children? Shopping opportunities that are kid-friendly can be somewhat of a challenge. Luckily, Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church has a solution.
