Movie Review: Piuma
By Katie Rountree
Young love and the consequences of un-protected sex make up the story line for this sweet indie Italian film entitled Piuma, which means feather in English. Piuma was the closing film during the CineFesta Italia festival in Santa Fe this June. A roller coaster of emotions occurs between the two young lovers as they try to comprehend just how this unplanned pregnancy will affect their lives and the lives of their dysfunctional parents.

Sharon is a fourth generation clairvoyant, and psychic medium. She will be in Santa Fe for a visit from June 26 – 28 & is offering special pricing on readings for Cool List members. Email me to schedule or for more info.

  • Building Homes for Families: St. Bede’s Episcopal Church sponsors a team each year to build a house for a family living in extreme poverty in the Ciudad Juarez, Mexico area. They are celebrating the silver anniversary, their 25th house built since 2000, with the house that will be built in early 2018. A generous member of the 2017 team has offered a challenge grant of $1,000 to be met by June 15 and they welcome contributions of any amount to the Challenge.  Checks can be made out to St. Bede’s Episcopal Church, with Juarez Challenge Grant in the memo.  Send to St. Bede’s Episcopal Church, 1601 S.

  • Rescuing Baby Elephants: A friend left this week for Africa and asked if I could pass along info about this organization that rescues baby elephants when their mothers have been brutality murdered. If interested, take a look at the video link of footage of the individual rescues; it’s heartbreaking & heartwarming.  It’s only $50 a year to adopt an elephant & you can decide which one resonates with you by watching the individual video clips of the rescues.  If you decide to adopt one let me know and my friend will personally take a video for you of your baby ele. http://www. sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/ asp/fostering.asp?gclid= Cj0KEQjwx6TJBRCWtsiXpI7bhOYBEi QA1en3F0yRaIn13hy0EsTfkInqEHH4 VuGgFJWTXTV-twumZ2MaAnod8P8HAQ
