- On a night when the toll of a lengthy boxing career was going to be tested in another multimillion-dollar world-title fight, the promise of a limitless future in the sport was also displayed. Oscar Valdez, a 23-year-old two-time Olympian from Nogales, Mexico, who trains in Santa Fe Springs, won his first belt, the North American Boxing Federation super-featherweight title, with a fourth-round knockout of Florida's Adrian Perez, 33, on Saturday.

LAS VEGAS -- Talk about unholy deeds: Somebody is breaking the lock on the donation box inside a historic Santa Fe, N.M., mission and stealing more than just the congregation's good will. And not just once. In the fourth theft at the Santuario de Guadalupe in the last six months, a thief pried open the tiny wooden box holding donations and made off with the cash inside. Not long ago, someone broke through several iron bars in the back of the little church, smashed a window and made off with two wooden crosses.

Think of a map of North America, and then turn it upside down so that Mexico and Texas are at the top and near the middle, and New England drips down like an appendage, nearly falling off the edge at the bottom. Felipe Fernández-Armesto has done something like that with North American history in his fascinating but problem-plagued new book "Our America: A Hispanic History of the United States. " He tells the history of the territory that is now known as the U.S.A. from the point of view of Spanish speakers, going back more than five centuries to the days of the conquistadors.

SANTA FE, N.M. - It's fair to call me a chocoholic, but it wasn't until a trip to Santa Fe that I realized I'd never had the good stuff. What was supposed to be a casual late-December exploration of this New Mexican cultural hub wound up becoming a full-on chocolate extravaganza in which I dragged my husband, Jay, to a new exhibit, "New World Cuisine: The Histories of Chocolate, Mate y Más," at Santa Fe's Museum of International Folk Art, and...

In New Mexico, you know autumn is coming when you smell the chile roasting. The bitter aroma rises from street corners and grocery store parking lots, where spicy green peppers plucked during the September harvest are blistered to perfection in cages cranked over an open flame. We buy them by the sack and put them in or on nearly everything we eat: burritos and tamales, of course, but also hamburgers, pizzas, pastas and pies. When I left Albuquerque for college on the East Coast, it was the food back home that I missed as much as the family cat or the yawning desert sky. Each time I visited, my mom would have a pan of enchiladas waiting in the oven.

David Parsons' in-progress dance piece, "EK90," officially celebrates the 90th birthday of a world-renowned artist. But to Parsons, it represents the birth of a movement - one that's grown fitfully over the years but now looks to have more momentum than ever. Last year, photographer Jack Shear commissioned a piece from Parsons in honor of his longtime partner, Ellsworth Kelly. With gay people winning battles in the United States and abroad, the topic came easily enough. "EK90," which Parsons Dance will perform Thursday and Friday at the Laguna Dance Festival, tells a coming-of-age story of a boy and a girl who eschew traditional gender roles.

There's no disappearing into the background in this season's new, don't-mess-with-me camouflage and animal prints. Alexis Bittar's "Santa Fe Deco" necklace mixes a zebra Lucite bib with luxe jewels, while Eddie Borgo's "Moon" ring is set with a rock crystal, onyx and jade "horn" that spans four fingers. Dries Van Noten's satin clutch boasts exotic plumage, and Nicholas Kirkwood's ankle boots spout fox fur pelts for the toes. But the ultimate luxe urban jungle trophy is from Michael Kors: a camo mink coat that yells, "I am woman, hear me roar.

"The Grand Re-Opening of the Jean Cocteau Cinema came off as scheduled on Friday evening ... something I scarcely would have believed a week ago," Martin writes on his website.
