Daily Postcard: She’s got this! An Acorn Woodpecker is not daunted in the least as she settles down on a railing to tackle a pair of jumbo peanuts recently near Mountain Elementary School. Acorn Woodpeckers are unusual in that they live in large groups, hoard acorns and breed cooperatively. Group members gather acorns by the hundreds and wedge them into holes they’ve made in tree trunks or telephone poles. Acorn Woodpeckers also spend considerable time catching insects on the wing.

Santa Fe Mayor Webber: An Enormous Moment

By ALAN M. WEBBER
Mayor
City of Santa Fe

Dear Friends, 

A lot has happened since last Monday. Our city is hurting. We’re feeling divided in the aftermath of the destruction of the historic obelisk on the Plaza. Some have long called for its removal. Others regard it as a cherished symbol. None of us approve of the way it was destroyed.

Los Alamos Victim Assistant:

Tuesday marked seven months that we’ve been mired in pandemic ponderings and if nothing else, we’re always up for something new.

 I will start as I do believe I did last time with an apology. No, not necessarily a planned pattern but I am about to use the “F” word in the middle of October. That “F” word my friends, is the Festival of Trees.
