On 2 Kasa This Morning

It’s your chance to help homeless children in Albuquerque who are sharing their dreams of hope in pictures. Those pictures were just unveiled at Galles Chevrolet Wednesday.

It is time to stop what you’re doing and check out some exercises. Personal trainer and fitness consultant, Alana Cole, is here.

It’s round two of treatment for a local teen battling a rare form of cancer. Many of you in the community have been behind Zak Lannon, helping him through his battle of what’s called a “desmoplastic small round cell tumor” which occurs as multiple masses in the abdomen. The 17-year-old is a football player with the West Mesa Mustangs in Albuquerque. Here with me now is Andy Hageman, co-owner of House of Football, who will be sponsoring an event to help Zak pretty soon.

It could be on the job, being a parent, planning an event, stress can come from anywhere and we all deal with it. It’s good to try to alleviate some, if not all of it, by the end of the day somehow. One way is with essential oils. Here with me now is Doctor Kay Rogers with Balanced Bodies LLC.

A music video featuring our state is being shown across the nation, gaining popularity and tons of views on YouTube. It’s called “Feels Like Home” (New Mexico True). The song is by a band from right here in Albuquerque called “Richmond.” Heath Warren and Nate Boitano of the band are here, along with Monique Jacobson, the creator of the New Mexico True brand.

With the weather getting cold outside, we can never have too many soup recipes to try out! Here with me now is Paco Aceves, owner and chef at Pacos International Smoked Cuisine.

We get phone calls, mailings, even door bell rings from people asking for donations to go toward a charity, but could one of those be a fake? Here with me now is Sharon Lipinski, a donation defender and a generosity expert.

Having a toddler at home, many feel the challenge of potty training! Here with me now is Doctor Loretta Cordova De Ortega, a pediatrician with UNM Medical Center Pediatric Clinic.

It’s probably one of the most outrageous work environments you’ve ever heard of and it’s happening in the city of Albuquerque. News 13′s Kim Holland goes On Special Assignment tonight.

Community Calendar

Happening at the Saint James Tearoom this evening is “A Pirate’s Life is Nnot For Me.” Kids can learn the basics of dining etiquette and other social graces along with two wayward pirates, who will also be learning. It starts at 6:30 p.m. and ends at 8:30 p.m.

At 12:45 today, you can head over to the aquarium to learn about the future of the Rio Grande. The guest speaker is from Sandia National Labs, who will focus on agriculture, urban development, environmental factors and other things. This ends at 1:30 p.m.
