Library Wants World War II Memorabilia Returned

Press Release [ Mon Sep 19 2016 11:30 AM ]

The Public Library in Albuquerque-Bernalillo County is asking for the return of a trunk full of priceless memorabilia and artifacts from World War II. The trunk was in a library patron's vehicle that was stolen earlier this month. Police recovered the stolen car, but the library's trunk is still missing.

The Public Library has several "traveling trunks" that can be checked out by patrons. They are history in a kit that is primarily used by teachers as educational tools, providing students with actual artifacts to examine from significant periods in history. Most of the items in the trunks are donated by relatives or families, or have been painstakingly collected by patrons, library staff and volunteers. Topics of other trunks at the library include the Lewis and Clark expedition, immigration, the Santa Fe Trail, the Camino Real, and WW I, Korean War and Vietnam wars.

The missing World War II trunk, valued at about $800, is a duffle bag with wheels that includes photographs, medals and other memorabilia from a World War II soldier, items that will be nearly impossible to replace.

If you have information about the missing World War II trunk please call the Albuquerque Police Department at 505-242-COPS (242-2677).

The Daily Word in Manhattan bombing, drought farming, and the Emmys

A homemade bomb exploded in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan on Saturday night, injuring 29 people. The prime suspect of that bombing and an earlier one in New Jersey, Ahmed Khan Rahami, was arrested after a shootout with police this morning in New Jersey.

13-year-old Tyre King was fatally shot by police in Columbus, Ohio last week. An independent medical examiner has stated that King was "more likely than not" running from police when he was killed, based on the location and direction of the bullet wounds.

There's been a years-long drought in the Breadbasket of America, and the Ogalalla Aquifer -- the underground water reservoir that serves the farms of the Great Plains -- is drying up. It's time for us to revisit our destructive methods of farming and irrigating.

The Emmy Awards show was this weekend. Here's the highlights.

There's a nip in the air and people are starting to talk about "leaf peeping" again. It's autumn, hosers. In honor of the season, let's revisit this classic McSweeney's essay: "It's Decorative Gourd Season, Motherfuckers."

Balloon Museum Debuts Tim Anderson 4-D Theater

Press Release [ Mon Sep 19 2016 8:17 AM ]

The Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum is adding a new attraction, the Tim Anderson 4-D Theater, and invites the public to attend a free "sneak peek" on Thursday, September 22, from 5-8pm.

The new theater will screen short 2-D and 3-D videos, and has the capacity to add physical sensations to the viewing experience such as vibrating seats, bursts of air, flashes of lightning, and even snow showers along with many others, which create the 4-D effect.

"The physical effects are intended to intensify the sights and sounds that go along with viewing 3-D films in the theater," says Paul Garver, Balloon Museum Manager. "The videos we'll show are flight, science, and nature-related, which will provide content that reflects and expands upon our exhibitions and programs. Like our first 3-D offering, 'Aerobatic Challenge,' some will be whimsical so you can just have fun. It's an exciting and unique addition to the museum."

Construction of the 40-seat theater began last year and was funded by a gift of the namesake Anderson family through the Anderson Abruzzo International Balloon Museum Foundation. During the sneak peek, two short videos, one in 2-D and the other in 3-D, will be shown back-to-back, and the museum's exhibitions will also be open to view.

The 2-D film runs approximately two minutes, and is a new production by CliffDweller Digital. It shows a history of ballooning as depicted by the museum's exhibitions and collection.

Following that is 'Aerobatic Challenge,' an award-winning and spectacular animated flight experience that runs approximately four minutes.

According to Garver, the theater will begin regular operations on or by September 30. Entry will be included at no additional charge with payment of regular admission to the museum. To support ongoing content development and maintenance, the Balloon Museum Foundation is seeking advertising sponsors for the theater. It will also be available for private rental activities such as corporate or civic meetings.
