    The Green — Formed in 2009 on Oahu, Hawaii, The Green “fuses late 1970s-era dub-heavy roots reggae with strands of contemporary rock/pop/R&B and sporadic indigenous Hawaiian musical and lyrical references” (Billboard).

  • Summer Concert Series draws to a close with final show

    There is one last concert scheduled for this year today at Rover Park in White Rock.
    “Well folks, I hope that you’ve enjoyed the 2013 Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series,” Concert organizer Russ Gordon said. “Our show is free. Bring your blankets and/or your lawn chairs. We’ll have a concrete dance floor or you can ‘play’ on the park’s grass.”`
    Two bands will be playing and it’ll be a night of dancing, or just listening to some classic American music. Opening the show at 7 p.m. will be the Los Alamos Big Band. This 16-piece band plays mostly the swing era standards of the 40’s and 50’s. This is the music written by such legends as Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and the Gershwin Brothers. Great songs like “In the Mood,” “String of Pearls,” “Sing, Sing, Sing,” “Moonlight Sonata” and “Take the A Train.”

  • ‘Kitten Kaboodle’ teaches value of pet adoption

    A house filled with adorable kittens may be appealing to some, but in terms of the animals’ welfare, adoption may be the best bet.
    In the book by Santa Fe author Paige Grant, a father brings home a box full of kittens, he found abandoned in a ditch.
    The daughter, Tessa is instantly enarmored with the litter and of course, wants to keep all of them. The mother objects but does agree to keep two — a calico female named Crazy Quilt or Quiltie and a black and white male named Maestro.
    After a show and tell at school two classmates were allowed to adopt a kitten each — with the parents’ permission.
    When it is time for the female to have kittens, the mother gives a lesson of how procreating cats may be a bad idea. It is a talk Tessa understands that spaying or neutering kittens is a necessary action.
    The family agrees to become foster parents for various kittens left at the shelter, before they are put up for adoption and placed in forever homes, as long as Tessa agrees to clean the litter box.
    “Kitten Caboodle” is a cute story of a little girl’s lesson in responsibility and the importance of pet adoption. The last two pages hold information of how to get involved with the local shelter, adopting and reduced fee or free ways to spay and neuter pets.
