This past weekend I got to participate in the 2013 MDA Muscle Walk, an event dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. It was at the UNM Track & Field on a beautiful Spring day.

I got to talk with folks and pass out W8T 2 TXT thumb bands. Check out the Pics!

Monday on the New Mexico Style Show…

Financial specialist, Skip Cowan discusses helpful hints for spending your refund wisely – enjoy your tax refund, but don’t spend it all in one place.

A few New Mexican eateries, such as Flying Star are teaming up with the Animal Human this month. For every specialty cookie you purchase a percentage goes to help pets in need of adoption.

We visited a Santa Fe classroom where Cooking with Kids provides a taste of international cuisine.

Of interest…

Today is the 50th anniversary of the daytime Soap Opera, General Hospital, the longest running soap in TV history.

On the agenda at the city council meeting tonight is the debate about adding a roundabout at Rio Grande and Candelaria where there have been a lot of crashes recently. Opponents say roundabouts are expensive to install and limit the number of cars that can go through the intersection.  But on the other hand, supporters say a roundabouts are cheaper and don’t need as much upkeep as traffic lights.

Also on tonight’s agenda, firefighters want to spend a million bucks for advanced paramedic equipment including EKG monitors. There are currently on some 20 ambulances right now but the department wants to put it on 22 fire trucks too so it can get to you faster. The fire department already has the money in its saving’s account.

Santa Fe’s Rooftop Pizzaria is being featured on the cooking channel’s show “Chuck’s Eat the Street”. A crew will be filming at the restaurant on east San Francisco Street from 2:30 pm to 6:30pm Tuesday. The restaurant is making an exception to its *no reservations* rule, so call rooftop for a seat during the filming.
