Roadside Art: World’s Smallest Target Found In Texas

A tiny decaying cinder block building located between Marathon, Texas and Alpine, Texas is now Target Marathon. The building was probably used by the railroad in the past as tracks sit just a few feet behind the structure. It is not known who created the miniature Target, which comes with a red shopping cart out in front. It was first seen in 2016. The world’s smallest Target sits alongside U.S. Highway 90 between the roadway and the train tracks. A little bit of mystery but a project sure to bring a smile to visitors traveling this stretch of highway in west Texas. Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com

Fr. Glenn: Light From Light

By Fr. Glenn Jones

 A beautiful full moon rising above the mountains east of Albuquerque in a cloudless sky this evening … something I used to enjoy even more immensely looking east from the cliffs of Los Alamos as it bathed the Rio Grande valley in the softness of its light. Truly beautiful. Thank you, Lord.

Now, the more analytical among us could, of course, expound on the fact that the moon is really just a cold dark mass of rock and dust, devoid of both life and light, and that it simply reflects light from another source—that massive ball of hydrogen hidden from view which roils with constant

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about my first experiences in Los Alamos. My first memory on the Hill is a Saturday morning in the early 1970s, I was about 5 years old. My mother worked as a housekeeper for Mr. & Mrs. Atkins and would sometimes bring my sister and me with her on a Saturday when she made a special trip to do Mrs. Atkins’ hair.

While she was busy with the hair do, my sister and I hung out in the kitchen with Mr. Atkins. He was a master at making dollar-sized pancakes, the only item on the menu when we came to

Fr. Glenn: Overturning Tables

By Fr. Glenn Jones

Several years ago there prevailed among Christian youth groups a very applicable adage by which to live one’s life: “WWJD”—“What Would Jesus Do?” Since Christians (ostensibly, at least) long to fashion their own lives in the love and charitable principles that Jesus taught and demonstrated, WWJD always before a Christian’s mind’s eye and, indeed, should be the governing principle of his life. But, as a Facebook post I saw once stated rather humorously, what lay in the realm of possibilities of “WWJD” is overturning tables.

I happened upon Jesus’ table tipping episode (Matthew
