FBI News:
FBI special agents and other Bureau professionals who respond to the bloody, chaotic scenes of mass casualties do so to help and to find answers: Who did it? How? Why?

Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church

I don’t normally speak about Catholic saints in this column, but we celebrated the memorial of one on March 3 who was a saint connected with our area and thus might be of interest to many in the area:  St. Katherine Drexel.

Katherine was born in 1858 into a prominent Philadelphia family, and her father and stepmother (her mother died only five weeks after Katherine’s birth) imbued early within her and her sisters a love of God and her fellow Man, especially of the poor and downtrodden.

You don't stumble upon your heritage. It's there, just waiting to be explored and shared. –Robbie Robertson

Every time I had the chance, I would open my mom’s old cedar chest and pull out her childhood photo albums. They were filled with pictures of people that I had never met; uncles, aunts, cousins, and grandparents. Every picture seemed so intentional. Every person was always dressed for the occasion, smiling at the camera, and gladly preserving a moment in time.

Sickly Coyote Survives Winter Appearing Healthier

on March 3, 2018 - 1:02pm

This coyote spotted today along the edge of Pueblo Canyon survived the mild winter and appears much healthier than in December when she was severely underweight and missing most of her fur. Chairman James Robinson of the Land of Enchantment Wildlife Foundation has been keeping an eye on her and under the right circumstances intends to entice her to eat a pill to cure her mange. He recently imbedded a pill in a chicken breast and said she was sniffing it and likely about to devour it when two ravens swooped down and snatched it away from her. Photo by Carol A. Clark/
