  • Students on a mission

    Just about everyone at Los Alamos Middle School is lending the community a helping hand.
    Each of the LAMS “Hawk” groups has the responsibility of raising money for the community by way of a food drive. Each group is supposed to bring in cans of food that will be distributed to needy Los Alamos families this holiday season.
    Heading up this project is Tina Derr, leader of E2, or Eternal Encouragement, a  Christian club open for middle school students during their lunch break, that allows them to hear some Christian encouragement from local youth leaders and pastors. In addition, the group offers games, fellowship and preparation for service projects.

  • Fashion Maven: Get to know the latest trend

    Knowing what the latest fall garment is might come as a surprise, but it will be a staple of your wardrobe. Let me give you some hints: It’s warm, it’s roomy, it’s comfortable — that’s right, it’s the cape.
    No, I don’t mean Superman capes that drag on the floor. I mean velvet, felt or knitted capes that come to the hip or mid-thigh. They close in the front, often with large buttons and many are styled after trench coats, but they do not have sleeves. Instead, they have armholes, slits on the sides or no armholes at all.

  • Travel to the Kingdom of Sweets

    You know Christmas is around the corner when “The Nutcracker” performances are approaching.
    Coming to Duane Smith Auditorium at 7 p.m. Dec. 2 and 2 p.m. Dec. 3 and 4, the 2011 “Nutcracker” promises to be different than previous performances.
    Under the direction of Christin Severini and Valerie Silks, the revamped “Nutcracker” features new costumes and choreography.
    With the help of prop volunteers, new set pieces are added on a yearly basis as well. Not only do “Nutcracker” performances vary from year to year, but also from day to day.

  • It’s never too late to do the right thing

    The Dreamworks version of the furry hero Puss in Boots was first seen in “Shrek 2,” but now he has his own movie.
    “Puss in Boots” is a new adventure with the same character audiences fell in love with during the “Shrek” movie series. The action-packed film was directed by Chris Miller and released on Oct. 28, 2011.
    The movie follows the adventure of the infamous sword fighting outlaw, Puss in Boots.
    The movie begins with Puss (Antonio Banderas), narrowly escaping from a bounty hunter’s house in the desert.

  • LA honors the armed forces

    For some people, “call of duty” is a video game. For some churches, it is a pun regarding those who serve the church in one way or another. On Nov. 11, men and women for whom those three words are a way of life were honored.
    Prior to the ceremony events at the VFW, the Elks Lodge served breakfast to not only veterans, but the public, as well. They did this last year and will do so again next year.
    At about 9:30 a.m., approximately 60 people trickled into the VFW. As the patrons took their seats, the pianist began playing a few bars of various patriotic songs. As he did so, the conversation faded to a slight murmur.
