Local teacher reminds us how kind our city can be

By Amelia Olson [ Mon Mar 23 2015 2:32 PM ]

It’s sometimes difficult to remember the rays of sunlight that inhabit our city. With tension surrounding our police force and homeless communities, Albuquerque can get caught up in the things we want to improve and lose sight of the people who are giving their hearts and souls to our beautiful city every single day to make it a better place. Local schoolteacher Sonya Romero is just one example of the kindness Burque folks possess, and thanks to her appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, a local school is getting some much needed TLC.

Flower Power: Our weekly Instagram photo contest winner

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Sat Mar 21 2015 11:09 AM ]

Yesterday, spring sprang. Here in Fringecrest, nature is waking—unfurling leaves, buds and blooms along Ridgecrest Boulevard and throughout labyrinthine tributary neighborhoods. Dreaming of springtime last weekend, I selected Flower Power as the Alibi's weekly photo contest theme.

Nature proffers sensory gifts aplenty on this second day of spring. And kindred Alibi readers offered up some gorgeous photos of Albuquerque flora on Instagram (@weeklyalibi / #alibiflower). The spectrum of color on display in Burque is proving well worth the wait. Here at the Carrillo casa, winter jasmine and climbing roses exist in various stages of bloom—erupting cadmium yellow and carmine.

Scroll on and smell the metaphorical roses by scoping some of our favorite entries and this week's photo contest victor.
