  • ‘Jane By Design’ breaks the television stereotypes

    In a time where television shows rely on sexual or violent plotlines in order to form and maintain a loyal fan base, the average American girl cannot expect to watch anything without being told she needs to dress more fashionably, be skinnier, or be promiscuous.
    However, ABC Family took care of that and gave the average American girl a show that, addresses modern topics, but is not based on promiscuity.
    Ever since January, when “Jane by Design” premiered on ABC, I have been obsessed. The story follows an awkward high school girl that gets offered an internship at Donovan Decker, a fashion company.

  • Ask Alex: Why do LA drivers drive the way they do?

    Speaking as an avid motorist, it has been my experience that the drivers in Los Alamos either speed, or go unbelievably slower than the speed limit.
    I assume this is what you mean when you ask why LA drivers drive “the way they do.” Now I can’t speak for the driving population of our town, so I can’t speak specifically. However, I can recklessly assume and pull facts out of thin air.
    Now, the population of drivers in our small, sheltered town consists of middle aged or older scientist and/or retired folk and us teenage rapscallions.

  • LAHS filmmaker gets a shot at fame

    Los Alamos High School senior Aidan Bradbury-Aranda has come a long way since creating his first animated movie featuring Legos, when he was in fourth grade.
    His first true film-making experience came in the form of Axle Contemporary, a Santa Fe-based mobile contemporary art gallery, owned by his friend’s father. Along with his brother, Owen Bradbury-Aranda, and his friend Quill Chase-Daniel, Bradbury-Aranda founded AquO, a film and video production company.
    Since then, they have produced short documentaries for Axle Contemporary and the New Mexico Museum of Art. The most ambitious project the trio have chosen to tackle was a full-length, post-apocalyptic movie titled “After.”

  • Science Fair Winners

    Los Alamos High School junior Holly Erickson took the grand award in the senior division at the Northeastern Regional Science Fair at New Mexico Highlands University March 3, while sophomore Joe Abeyta and senior Adrian Abeyta placed second and qualified for state competition.

  • Cafeteria offers students a variety

    Everyone who’s been to Los Alamos High School knows there is a cafeteria, and everyone who knows about the cafeteria has probably eaten there at least once since it opened. 
    So as with everything on planet Earth, there are those who like it and those who hate it.
    I lean toward the “like” category.  Note to freshman: one big reason you should accept the cafeteria’s offerings is because the food is great, compared to the middle school’s glue and plastic (supposedly) mac and cheese they offer with some meals. 
    For the rest of the student body, the cafeteria works just like any other cafeteria … it’s as good as it’s going to get.

  • Fashion Maven: Clothes make the man

    After receiving numerous suggestions to write about guys’ fashion, I have decided to fulfill the requests.
    Fashion for men is as broad a subject as women’s fashion, so I have decided to narrow down this column to what a man should not do when he dresses himself in the morning. Ahem, guys: this might be a good time to listen up because I speak for a vast majority of ladies, here.
