Monday, Monday

Calls for submissions: 'tis the season to shop... as locally as possible. Last week, I put out a call for local business, independent crafters and other freelancers to submit information on specials, sales, merchandise and speciality items for the holidays...with pictures.

This week's call is for more of the same and pictures of art by local artists and Mountainair scenes for our Mountainair Scenes and Mountainair Artists features.

Thanks to Maureen and Neil at Jackass Junction for responding and sending their news. Want to see your establishment or work here? Independent artisans welcome. Send information and pictures - not too large because this offer doesn't include free photo editing. (not a guarantee - just good odds)
entrance and front room
Maureen, Neil and longears are pleased as punch over the article in The Independent Holiday supplement about the Junction. They are racking up an impressive record of coverage in area press but not letting it go to their heads and forgetting about the community. In addition to donating gift certificates at the recent Fire Benefit Bingo, they want to promote greater collaboration among local businesses. So take your flyer, business cards,, brochures, menus, etc. to Jackass Junction for them to display.

District personnel will be providing information on fire events during the initial phases of the Ojo Peak Fire.
