The Daily Word in the Bulger trial, a bomb-throwing beauty queen and singing canines

The Daily Word

The defense says he was an informant; the prosecution says he's a murderer. Bulger's trial should come to a close this afternoon.

Talk about the future in food ...

It looks like the recently crowned Miss Riverton isn't your average bombshell.

Two people were injured in a shootout that targeted the Black Berets motorcycle club. The Black Berets say “it ain't over.”

In Bernalillo County, a man was shot and killed by police on Sunday evening after threatening a deputy.

Apparently breaking into public pools for a late-night dip isn't enough …

The “Old Main” prison, which been closed for 15 years, could become “New Mexico's Alcatraz.

It seems like Daft Punk might be popular with canines as well.

Zimmer

An art show in the north valley this weekend

Janie Gonzales, of Vida Art Connections, is throwing Zimmer, an art exhibition, at her Rio Grande Estates home Saturday, Oct. 9 and Sunday, Oct. 10 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and by appointment after that.

Gonzales said the invitational art exhibition is in honor of Lis Zimmer, a former Albuquerque resident and community activist, who died this spring from breast cancer. A percentage of proceeds from this event will be donated to the New Mexico Cancer Center.

Vida Art Connections, formerly known as Vida Art Exhibitions tries to place high quality fine art in non-traditional venues for the mutual benefit of the viewer, the hosting organization, and the artists involved, according to Gonzales.

Gonzales set the event up to coincide with the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.

Marian Berg, Travis Bruce Black, Susan Brown, Magda Rea Burger, Anna Carillo, Kim Eagle, Tina Garcia, Estevan Gonzales, Janie Perry Gonzales, Sydney Johnson, Linda Laitner, Margie Lucena, Cecelia McRoberts, Norma Mitnick, Andrea Ponzini, Holly Roberts, Todd Tibbals, Bob Wilson and Teal Wilson are participating at the event.

For more information or to set up an appointment, call Janie Gonzales at 888-2830.

This Weekend: Fight Cancer, Drink Wine!

All weekend long, Domaine Lucie et Auguste Lignier wines will be available at Brasserie La Provence, with a portion of the sales going to the UNM Cancer Center. Then on Saturday, March 1, Scalo Northern Italian Grill will host a benefit reception with winemaker Kellen Lignier from 3 to 5 p.m., which will also contribute to the UNM Cancer Center. The reception is $30, and cash or checks at the door are preferred.

What’s the connection between this winery and cancer research? The UNM Cancer Center shares Lignier’s story:

Kellen Lignier, a New Mexico native who followed her heart to France, now runs her husband's family winery in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or. Lignier’s husband, Romain, lost his battle with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain tumor, in 2004. Left with her two children, Lucie and Auguste, Lignier has carried on her husband’s legacy of fine winemaking.

With her success, Lignier became determined to contribute to the fight against the disease that took her husband’s life. Driven to participate in the fight against cancer, Lignier turned to her home state, New Mexico, and the UNM Cancer Center, the official cancer center of the State of New Mexico. This wine benefit is the result of her wish to give something back to the cancer patients of the region.

“Many of us has been touched in some way by a cancer diagnosis, and to see someone whose life has been changed so radically by cancer giving back to the community is inspiring,” said Dr. Cheryl Willman, Director and CEO of the UNM Cancer Center. “We are thrilled to partner with Mrs. Lignier and with the Albuquerque community to make this wine benefit a tremendous success.”
