  • As school gets back in the groove, take this time to take care of yourself and to be aware of the stresses children of all ages sometimes experience.
    While many are glad to get back into a routine and see friends, a lot of information coming from all directions can be overwhelming.
    One of the sad things about the community, and perhaps the world, is that many aren’t willing to share stories of stress, depression, anxiety or recovery for fear of how one will be received.
    I am about to tell you a story because personally now I feel that I can talk about it.
    Last year at this time, my mother fell and hit her head while she was out for a walk. We never could find out who to thank, but someone on 45th street called police and she was taken to the emergency room.
    What followed was a brain bleed, on a 70-year-old woman who had battled breast cancer for four years, then a brain tumor and radiation.
    God Bless my husband and children because the next nine months would be a handful, the likes of which we would not have imagined just before homecoming 2015.
    A slow decline started of which we were prepared for, but never realized it would be fraught with anxiety, depression, delusion and a touch of psychosis on the way down that hill.

  • The Betty Ehart Senior Center is once again offering the Los Alamos community a chance to explore and develop their potential musical skills with this newly-popular old-timey instrument – the Hawaiian ukulele.
    Beginning Sept. 23, instructors Kathleen Galbraith and Fran Christiansen of Tierra Amarilla, will conduct 45-minute basic ukulele lessons for eight consecutive Friday mornings.
    Classes are held in the BESC downstairs classroom, and begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. A 45-minute “sing-and-strum session” for students continuing from prior semesters will follow the basic class, beginning at 10:30 a.m.
    Prior musical experience is not necessary, and lesson materials are provided, which are designed for serious beginners who have time in their personal schedule to practice for a minimum of 15 minutes per day between class sessions.
    Practice instruments are on loan from the instructors and may be checked out for the duration of the class.
    A materials and travel reimbursement fee of $40 will be collected at the beginning of the third class meeting.
    In order to ensure that personal attention can be given to each student, the class size will be limited. Ruth Lier is the local coordinator for this class and will provide more information and handle pre-registration. She can be reached at 662-7114, or rlier@juno.com.

    Juan—A big tomcat who was trapped a few weeks ago. Since Juan was on his own in the wild for quite some time, it has taken lots of time by a patient volunteer to help him adjust to life at the shelter and interaction with humans. Juan would do well in a home with other cats, as they make him feel more comfortable. Juan particularly loves the company of kittens, since he loves to give baths! Juan will need time and space to adjust and might hide for a while, but just give him some time! No children for this guy.
