  • HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Over the long months that Victoria Mitchell lived in her car with her infant daughter, there was one bright spot in her life: doing laundry.
    Every month, Mitchell would trek to a local laundromat and take advantage of Laundry Love, a growing faith-driven movement that helps those who are homeless, or financially struggling by washing their dirty clothes for free.
    Amid the comforting routine of fluffing and folding, volunteers befriend their patrons and often find ways to help that go beyond free soap and quarters.
    Mitchell, for example, now has a job and place to live after the Laundry Love volunteers pooled their money to help her family rent a starter apartment. They have also watched her daughter Jessica grow from a newborn to a curly-haired toddler.
    “You’re not just checking a box to give a donation. You’re spending the whole evening with these people and getting your hands dirty and it’s intimate — you’re doing people’s laundry,” said LuzAnna Figueroa, who volunteers at the group’s Huntington Beach chapter and has grown close to Mitchell and her daughter.

  • Los Alamos ScienceFest has expanded to more than a full week of mind-blowing demonstrations, interactive activities, art and discussions for inquisitive minds of all ages. The festival is from Sept. 5–13.  The majority of the festival activities are free and open to the public. The festival was formerly known as the Next Big Idea.
    Festival highlights include an appearance by former shuttle astronaut and Los Alamos National Laboratory employee John Phillips, drone demonstrations and giveaways, photography exhibition of early work by Berlyn Brixner, Detonography art, 3-D chalk artist, Rocket Day and Expo Day, among many others.
    In addition, live music concerts will take place on both Fridays of the festival from 7–10 p.m. courtesy of the Los Alamos Summer Concert Series.
    
“Los Alamos is a place of world changing ideas. Los Alamos ScienceFest celebrates this and explores how science lies at the heart of everything through an entertaining and engaging series of events, exhibitions and happenings,” said Suzette Fox, executive director of Los Alamos MainStreet.
    ScienceFest features nine days of interactive demonstrations, workshops, hands-on activities and dynamic speakers to engage in thought provoking discussion and even includes a few big nights out.”

  • Over the years, there have been a number of Christian rock bands that have graced New Mexico stages.

    The “Welcome Back to School” music evening encourages youth and their parents to enjoy music together. The show starts at 6 p.m. Sept. 6, however the community is urged to come early and take part in other activities available, including tailgating, games and gift card giveaways from local sponsors (Morning Glory Bakery, Smith’s, Daniel’s Café and CB Fox, among others).
    Mark said many of the area churches will also be involved in the festivities to offer a true community feel to the event.
