Last weekend’s Wonder of Nature Art Show focusing on the four elements of nature was a huge success. Families and schools exhibited creative and thought provoking works of art and display boards. We will open the show one more day due to the interest by many to see the art work who couldn’t attend last weekend. Please come by the Bachechi Environmental Education (EE) Building this Saturday from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. to see these amazing works of art, as well as the outdoor art instillation participants helped to create just west of the EE building. Bachechi is located at 9521 Rio Grande Blvd. NW (corner of Alameda and Rio Grande). For more information, call 314-0398.

Commissioner Wayne Johnson: Shop Local this Holiday Season
Small businesses create jobs, support community
Bernalillo County – Commissioner Wayne Johnson today encouraged the community to shop local this holiday season, which will create jobs and help small businesses, the backbone of the economy in New Mexico.
Commissioner Johnson’s announcement at Bigglesnorts Toys in the Northeast Heights highlighted the positive impact of shopping locally: The money stays in the community, creates and maintains jobs, and supports families.
“When we shop local, we’re helping to create and maintain jobs for our friends and neighbors,” Commissioner Wayne Johnson says. “Supporting small businesses is one of the best things we can do to support our local economy. This year’s holiday season is a great opportunity to reinvest in our community and help our entrepreneurs continue to build their business.” Continue Reading »
