The Good:
- Bloomberg offers heartening news with "Peru Stocks Rise to Record" led by mining company Cia. Minera Milpo SA. "Peru's index has jumped 11 percent since Dec. 19 as investors bet that an expected economic rebound this year in the U.S., Japan and Europe will boost profits of commodities companies in Latin America." Incredibly (?) Minera Milpo has risen 37 percent in the same period, including a 6 percent gain today. Get in line.

- Business News Americas has a piece on ProInversion, Peru's investment promotion agency, which will release its investment strategy for the country's northern Piura department public water utility EPS Grau.

The Not So Good: The New York Times leads with a paisana in the Neediest Cases series.

The Arts:
- Denver's Rocky Mountain News highlights "a quartet of shows on the art and history of Peru" in that city with the Denver Art Museum presenting " 'Tiwanaku: Ancestors of the Inca'" on October 16.

- New Hampshire's Gazette reviews MVLl's latest, The Way to Paradise.
