  • CROP Hunger Walk/Turkey Trot thank you
    The 2012 Los Alamos CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) Hunger Walk and Turkey Trot was a great success thanks to the many individuals, businesses, churches and organizations that contributed funds, time, and talents.  
    We had approximately 220 walkers/runners participating in the event and raised $13,055, an increase of more than $4,000 from 2011, and were yet again one of the top CROP Hunger Walk fundraisers in New Mexico (second to Albuquerque).
    2012 was the first year we attempted a logo contest, with Sarah Worley being our young artist with a very creative design.  Thanks to Sarah and the many other third through sixth graders who submitted wonderful logos, and to the many youth in town who participated in hunger banquets to raise awareness of national and global hunger issues.
    The money raised is used at the grassroots level for worldwide relief efforts, with 25 percent of the funds locally disbursed to LA Cares and the remainder to Church World Service (CWS).
    LA Cares provides services to those in Los Alamos County at risk of being homeless via monthly food distributions that support an increasing number of Los Alamos County residents.

  • Taste what Rio Rancho restaurants have to offer at the Third Annual Taste of Rio Rancho, at 4 p.m. March 9. More than 25 local restaurants will take part in this year’s event, which will provide attendees with free samples of their signature foods while supplies last.  
    Due to the response to the first two years of the event, the restaurants will be moved off of the concourse and onto the main floor of the Santa Ana Star Center, creating Rio Rancho restaurant village in a spacious layout.
    In addition to sampling food, attendees will be treated to live music from Point Blank, CRB, as well as Al Hurricane and Al Hurricane Jr.
    “I invite residents to join us for this celebration of restaurants to discover and re-discover the great diversity of eateries in our city,” said Rio Rancho Mayor Tom Swisstack.
    “Eating in Rio Rancho is just one way that residents can ‘Think Rio Rancho First,” in order to support their local community and economy.”
     This year’s participants will showcase a sampling of the diversity of Rio Rancho eateries.
