ATLANTA — NAPA Auto Parts and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) have named Paul Marquardt the 2010 NAPA/ASE Technician of the Year. AdvertisementClick Here to Read MoreAdvertisement Marquardt, who owns Northwood’s Auto Techs in Rhinelander, Wis., was recognized with the annual award for his excellence in the automotive repair and maintenance industry. Marquardt is a master automotive technician with an L1 certification and a certified service consultant. Training is important to Marquardt, as evidenced by his own automotive education and his leadership to educate others. All three of the full-time technicians at his shop are ASE Master Automotive Technicians. Also, his business is an AAA-Approved Auto Repair Facility and an ASE Blue Seal of Excellence Shop. “Marquardt has been recognized for his dedication to our industry and impressive community involvement by the judging panel of ASE, trade press, university and aftermarket industry association representatives,” said NAPA President Bob Susor. “Marquardt is very deserving of this honor and represents NAPA and our industry well.” With more than 30 years experience in the automotive industry, Marquardt got his start working after school at a gas station. He began working full-time at the station in 1979 and purchased the business in 1990 with his wife, Karen. In 1994, they removed the tanks to focus the operation on auto repair and expanded the business in 1995. At that time, they decided that aligning with a strong brand and supplier was important to future success, so Marquardt joined the NAPA AutoCare program.

COUNTY News: This is notice that there are no applications for the Board of Adjustment meeting scheduled for Monday, July 1. As such, there will not be a meeting.
By Fr. Glenn Jones:(Sigh)….57 years old and still reading the comics. But … it brings a little levity early in the day, and helps set a good mood. Maybe all of us sneak a peek at our old favorites now and again. I mean … how can you not like “Dilbert”?! And then there’s the golden oldies like Dennis the Menace, Peanuts, and even ol’ Garfield is getting a little long in the tooth. I can’t help but marvel at times at the cleverness of some of the writers. They are pretty good observers of the human scene.A good one on Saturday with “Curtis”, centering on a couple of young brothers. The younger, frustrated that his older brother is going off to see his honey-snookems rather than playing with him, exclaims: “You’re a dumb poopyhead!!” Ah … our recent political “dialogue” in a nutshell—which I have little doubt but was the author’s intention. But, rather than respond in kind, the brother simply says: “Insults and name-calling don’t bug me…I don’t give ‘em the power! Sticks and stones…you know the rest.” Would that we all practice such wisdom!But … we also know that the closer we are to the person, the greater the sting of insult … something which may have been in the mind of the author of Sirach: “The blow of a whip raises a welt, but a blow of the tongue crushes the bones.” (Sirach 28:17) And certainly Jesus taught that insults are diametrically opposed to charity and Godliness: “…whoever insults his brother shall be liable to the council, and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be liable to the hell of fire.” (Matthew 5:22) Yikes. And we also remember Jesus: “…what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.” (Luke 12:2-3) How often we see this even in this life; it seems that anything we say eventually comes out … to some hurt. Thus, the wise heed the advice in Peter’s letter: “Do not return evil for evil or reviling for reviling; but on the contrary bless, for to this you have been called, that you may obtain a blessing.” (1 Peter 3:9) All throughout the Bible are exhortations against insults and gossiping and murmuring … and bearing false witness (oh, yeah … that Commandment thing!)All of the wisdom given us above and elsewhere in scriptures is centered, of course, in Jesus and His teaching. And this weekend (June 29 this year) we Catholics celebrate one who points us to Him in the only command that she gives … the wisest advice of all scripture: “Do whatever He [Jesus] tells you.” (John 2:5). Yes, ‘tis His mother Mary. This weekend is normally (though superseded this year by another feast, however) the universal Catholic memorial of that which the Los Alamos Catholic church is named: the Immaculate Heart of Mary.Christians outside the orbit of Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy—and to an extent including Anglican/Episcopal and Lutheran—are oft perplexed by our honoring of Mary. That honor is certainly NOT worship, as she was as human as any other of us … wholly dependent upon God’s grace. Nonetheless, she obviously occupies a special place in salvation history as the mother of the Savior Jesus Christ—the very fact of which indicates her “specialness” in the divine mind. While obviously not the source of Jesus’ divinity, she IS the source of His humanity, and utterly devoted to her only Son and Savior from conception to death … and from resurrection, ascension and beyond. She is, and is for all eternity, His mother.And yet … she is by extension also the mother of all Christians and of the Christian faith, as Jesus alludes to so very poignantly almost at the moment of His death on the cross when He sees Mary and the disciple at His feet: “When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, behold, your son!’ Then he said to the disciple, ‘Behold, your mother!’” (John 19:26-27) This is far more than just “Look after mom when I’m gone”; we Catholics and Orthodox see this as divine assignment and affirmation of her role in the Christianity. And that brings up another of those Commandment things: “Honor thy father and thy mother.”But why say prayers to Mary? First of all, the honor given to Mary and any of the saints is ultimately given to Christ, for without Him and God’s grace they would be nothing. But also … we Christians are a living community (“…have you not read what was said to you by God, ‘I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not God of the dead, but of the living.” (Matthew 22:31-32)), and in our love for one another we pray for one another. Mary, as a saint, has no need of our prayers, but we continuing the earthly struggle certainly have need of hers … and of all the saints. Just as we might ask Aunt Betsy to pray for us, we ask the saints and our fellow Christians on earth to pray for us. We remember James: “…pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects.” (James 5:16) Well … there are none more righteous than those in Heaven! This is the “communion of saints” and the “one Body of Christ” of which all Christians are a part.So where does this “Immaculate Heart” come in? Well, at the most basic level, non-Catholics/Orthodox could understand it as Mary’s pure will to do the perfect will of God in whatever she was called to do—accepting meekly the unprecedented mission of conceiving virginally, bearing, raising and witnessing the death of God’s Son … HER Son … through birthing in a stable, flight from murderers, exile, disgrace, uncertainty, sorrow, etc. She is truly “the handmaid of the Lord,” ever acquiescing to the greater will of God. And, thus, in that, she is mother and model for all.Rev. Glenn Jones is the Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and former pastor of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Los Alamos.

After obtaining her solo violin diploma, she continued her vocal studies with Udo Reinemann, Jard van Nes, and Dame Janet Baker. Over the years, she’s won numerous awards, including a 2005 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, a 2005–06 ECHO Rising Stars Award, and the 2008 Dutch Music Award. In 2007, she was named a BBC New Generation Artist. Highlights of Ms. Stotijn’s 2018–19 season include performances of Thomas Adès’s Totentanz (which she premiered in 2013 at the BBC Proms in London’s Royal Albert Hall) with both the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre de Paris; Berlioz’s La Mort de Cléopâtre with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra; Mahler’s Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3 with the Orchestre National de Lille; Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Britten Sinfonia, conducted by Mr. Adès; a Dutch national tour of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde with the Netherlands Blazers Ensemble; and a recital in Strasbourg for Opéra national du Rhin. Week 2 (Sunday, July 21–Saturday, July 27) comprises eight concerts held in St. Francis Auditorium at the New Mexico Museum of Art, which is one of the Festival’s longtime Santa Fe venues. Closing out Week 2, violinist Soovin Kim, as part of the Festival’s long-standing Bach Plus Series, gives a solo recital that includes Bach’s Sonata No. 1, BWV 1001, and Partita No. 2, BWV 1004, as well as Ysaÿe’s dazzling Sonata in E Minor, Op. 27, No. 4, which features several Bach influences. Ysaÿe dedicated this sonata to Fritz Kreisler, who, like Ysaÿe, was a renowned violin virtuoso. Throughout the season, the Festival presents four free, family-friendly Youth Concerts, which feature Festival artists engaging in musical storytelling and performing excerpts of repertoire drawn directly from the Festival’s regular programming. The second 2019 Youth Concert is on Monday, July 22, 10 a.m., at the New Mexico Museum of Art, and features percussionists Scott Ney, Steven White, and Gregory Zuber. MUSICAL HIGHLIGHTS AND FEATURED ARTISTS SANTA FE — During its 2019 Season, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival—which runs today, July 14, through Monday, Aug. 19, offers a wide range of works performed by longtime Festival-audience favorites as well as acclaimed musicians making their Festival debuts. Another highlight of Week 1 is the return of pianist Wei Luo, who gives a solo recital on July 25 at noon in the New Mexico Museum of Art. Ms. Luo opens her recital with a popular work by Mozart, the sparkling Sonata in C Major, K. 330, and closes it with a rarely heard gem by Schubert, Drei Klavierstücke (Three Piano Pieces). Her program also includes Chopin’s Scherzo No. 2 in B-flat Minor, Op. 31—which Schumann described as “overflowing with tenderness, boldness, love, and contempt”—and Two Polyphonic Pieces, an enthralling work by the Moscow-born composer Rodion Shchedrin. The New York City–based Escher String Quartet has received acclaim for its profound musical insight and rare tonal beauty. A former BBC New Generation Artist, the Escher has performed at London’s Cadogan Hall for the BBC Proms. During the 2018–19 season, the quartet tours the United States extensively, appearing in venues such as Alice Tully Hall in New York City; The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC; -more- Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival – 2019 Highlights – Week 2 page 2 of 6 the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, California; the Harris Theater in Chicago; and many others.

Internationally, the Escher returns for a season-long residency at Wigmore Hall, where it performs three self-curated programs highlighting American and American-influenced compositions. The Escher String Quartet returns to the Festival for the first time in 11 years with a concert July 23 at noon in the New Mexico Museum of Art. The concert includes Schubert’s wonderfully frenetic Quartettsatz (the first movement of an unfinished string quartet), Webern’s finely distilled Five Movements for String Quartet, and Korngold’s String Quartet No. 3, which, like his popular Violin Concerto, draws on themes from the composer’s acclaimed film scores. July 24, at the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Festival launches the first of this season’s three pianovocal recitals, which celebrate iconic masterpieces of the art-song repertoire and are part of the brand-new, five-concert Music at Noon Wednesday Series. This inaugural recital features mezzo-soprano Christianne Stotijn (in her Festival debut) and pianist Kirill Gerstein performing Schumann’s emotional song cycle Frauenliebe und Leben (A Woman’s Love and Life) as well as a rich range of songs by Tchaikovsky and Richard Strauss. It also presents three dynamic and intimate recitals that feature solo works for the violin and the piano as well as masterpieces of the piano-vocal repertoire. Wei Luo made her orchestral debut in 2010, with the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra. Recent recital appearances include Sonoma State University, the Herbst Theatre (presented by San Francisco Performances), and Festival Napa Valley; concerto appearances include the Kansas City Symphony and the Denver -more- Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival – 2019 Highlights – Week 2 page 3 of 6 Philharmonic Orchestra.
