    “Am I responsible for my sins? Can’t I just blame the devil?”

     

    The Bible certainly accedes to the existence of and activity of the devil — and he may well be involved in “your sins.” 

    The devil has made sin look good since the beginning (Gen. 3:1ff). Liar that he is (Jn. 8:44), he convinced Eve that God was not really serious when He warned the humans not to eat the fruit. 

    The devil convinced her that if she ate the fruit, she could be like God — a falsehood that was the undoing of both her and her husband.

    Steven Calhoun, a senior at Los Alamos High School, was recently honored as Rotary Student of the Month. 

    The Rotary Club of Los Alamos selects one student each month of the school year to honor as a Student of the Month. 

    This year’s recipients reflect a combination of both LAHS seniors and juniors; in the fall, only juniors will be recognized in hopes of inspiring their interest in Rotary programs that take place during the summer following junior year. 

    Students are nominated by their teachers and chosen on the basis of their academic achievement, extra-curricular activities, and, in particular, their service to the community.

     Calhoun, who maintains an excellent GPA, has always regarded community service as an important part of his life.

    Here are five of the 10 students honored.

    Today 

    Authors Speak Series. Tom Harmer, a lifelong student of natural history, outdoor survival and native practices in the wild. 7 p.m. at the Mesa Public Library upstairs rotunda.

     

    Downtown Dogs. A weekly walking group for dogs and humans. The walk starts from Pet Pangaea at 6 p.m. on Thursday nights for a stroll around downtown Los Alamos. So, come on out for fun, friendship and exercise. Bring a leash, no longer than six feet.

     

  • Mesa Public Library’s “Quotes: The Authors Speak Series,” presents Tom Harmer, a lifelong student of natural history, outdoor survival and native practices in the wild, will read from his most recent book, “A Walk Around the Horizon: Discovering New Mexico’s Mountains of the Four Direction.”
    The talk will begin 7 p.m. today at the library’s upstairs rotunda.
    Near Santa Fe, landscape is framed by four high mountains — Sandia to the south, Chicoma to the west, Canjilon to the north, and Truchas to the east.
    Although they are sacred to the Tewa Pueblo Indians, the four peaks are in different bureaucratic and cultural zones, which means that each peak attracts visitors but few non-Indian travelers visit more than one of the mountains. In 2010, at the age of 62, Harmer resolved to climb all four of these mountains in one summer.
    His chronicle offers a view of a montane forest unlike any in the world, where mountain, plain and desert biota converge.
    Harmer’s writing is shaped by years of living off the land, especially the nearly 10 years spent with a band of Salish Indians, which he documented in his previous books :Going Native” and “What I’ve Always Known: Living in Full Awareness of the Earth.”

  •  “Nature on Tap” discusses
    energy, water, climate change

    The Pajarito Environmental Education Center will host “Nature on Tap,” part of a new informal discussion series, 5:30 p.m. today at the Blue Window Bistro.
    The “On Tap” series is a new project from the Los Alamos Creative District and is held every Thursday with the themes “Nature on Tap,” “History on Tap,” “Science on Tap,” and “Art on Tap.” It is a great way to get out in the community and meet people with similar interests. This event is the second “Nature on Tap” discussion, which will be held on every fourth Thursday of the month.
    For this installment of “Nature on Tap”, Christine Chavez, Energy and Water Conservation Coordinator for Los Alamos County, will facilitate the discussion.
    Chavez will speak briefly about topics that affect all of us — Energy, Water and Climate Change — and then will open up to discussion from the group about these critical issues.
