The Daily Word in Mandela's death, bathroom surveillance and bad dirt

Nelson Mandela, the former president of South Africa, died yesterday at the age of 95.

It looks like Carrie Underwood struck gold (not really). Apparently, even though not everyone loved it, The Sound of Music was watched by many.

Over 100 people were left dead in Bangui, Central African Republic, due to political unrest between Muslim rebels and Christian citizens.

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has not been charged with rape.

Shaine Sherrill, who was shot by APD officers Sunday afternoon, did not have a gun. Apparently, Sherrill was suicidal and had said he wanted to be shot by police.

Just for future reference, when you use the wrong dirt … it might cause some setbacks.

Andrew Coppler faces up to nine years in prison after being convicted of second-degree murder for the death of his father.

A restaurant owner is facing some scrutiny for putting a surveillance camera in the men's bathroom. Yikes.

Bluegrass in the Shade With the Adobe Brothers

A most excellent thing to do this weekend would be visiting with and having a listen to the Adobe Brothers, one of Burque’s most listenable combos. This goal can be readily accomplished by trucking on over to Shade Tree Custom Cycles and Café (3411 Central NE) tonight. The freewheeling Nob Hill grub-and-tire joint hosts a performance by Jacoby, Moby, Pierogi and Toby Adobe, starting 'round 7pm. The Brothers describe their music as “international bluegrass” in Americana form. While that's certainly a decent description of their output, the chops on these four gentlemen relativesplus the awesome musical cred they carry around in their gig bagsare well worth the attention of local music aficionados. With over 200 numbers in their repertoire, you're bound to find some twangy tunes to get you onto the dance floor. Shade Tree is just up the road a ways from the Guild and across the street from some joint called Flying Star. Jump on in, 'cause the bluegrass is just fine. Shade Tree Custom Cycles and Cafe • Sat Nov 30 • 7pm • FREE • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar

FemCity Connection Lunch

They say that good deals and great ideas happen over food, which is why a professional lunch can have many opportunities. FemCity Albuquerque will host author Jessica Eaves Mathews at a connection luncheon tomorrow at Savoy Bar and Grill (10601 Montgomery). At the event, Matthews will discuss her book, Wonder Women: How Western Women will Save the World, with the public and, true to the book’s mission, aims to empower and motivate local women. The book frankly discusses politics, the national debt and economic issues rooted in the customary approach to business. After a drawn out government shutdown and an only increasing national debt problem, maybe some practical local solutions and a change of mind would do the community a little good. The connection lunch begins at 11:30am. FemCity Albuquerque members can buy tickets for $45 and others can purchase them for $55. Tickets include an elegant lunchcomplete with a glass of wineand a raffle. For more information on the event or Femfessionals Albuquerque, visit femfessionals.com or FemCity Albuquerque's Facebook page. Savoy Bar and Grill • Fri Nov 1 • 11:30am • $45 for FemCity members, $55 for non-members • View on Alibi calendar
