  • “If everyone in the world had a neighbor like John, this would be a wonderful world.”
    Behind most endeavors is someone who just does his job, keeps things going, avoids the limelight – and is indispensable. Such a one is 2014 Living Treasure John Stewart.
    John was born in New York City and raised mostly in Richland, Washington, where his father worked at the Hanford Atomic Site. He graduated from Washington State College with a degree in psychology, but two years in the Army convinced him that a different specialty might enhance his job prospects. Returning to school, he earned a master’s degree in mathematics. He and Margaret married in 1955; a 60th wedding anniversary beckons. John hired on at the Los Alamos Laboratory in 1959 as a computer programmer (later system manager). He started working in an astronomy group, then oceanography, and ended with seismology.
    “When I retired, I didn’t know what to do with myself, what to keep me off the street.” John reached out to the community.

  • Throughout her life, 2014 Living Treasure Teralene (Terry) Foxx has felt close to nature. “When I
    was six, we moved to a wheat ranch in Idaho on the Little Camas Prairie. Every spring the Camas lilies bloomed. We would walk along the road and my mother would talk about the lilies or pick up a snake and let us touch it. That was my introduction”, Terry’s interest was cemented at the College of Idaho. There she took a seven- week camping field trip from Southern Idaho into Mexico, studying the flora and fauna of Mexico and the Southwest. Later she earned an MS in biology from Kansas State University.

    Terry and her husband Jim arrived in Los Alamos in 1969 with two daughters Alison and Erin.
    He had accepted a job as an inorganic chemist at Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory. Their third
    daughter, Kerri, was born in Los Alamos. Terry credits the pull of Los Alamos’ natural setting as
    an immediate attraction. “I have a heart for the mountains. I never got use to the flatness of
    Kansas. It was a chance to come back home.”

  • To kick off this year’s Los Alamos Summer Concert Series, there will be a fundraiser with an auction — with several items that were donated by local businesses and members of the community.
    The event starts at 7 tonight at the Los Alamos Posse Lodge with music by DK & the Affordables, with special guests musician Eddy Partridge of the Nomads fame and James Carothers of the Renegade Mountain Band.
    The silent and live auction will begin at 8:30 p.m. All funds goes into the 2014 Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series. Only cash and checks will be accepted.
    The price of the event is $15 per person and $25 per couple.
    The food items available will be hand-pressed hamburgers or cheeseburgers cooked on a grill with all the fixings, including green chile, lettuce, onions, etc. The dinner comes with Aunt Annie’s coleslaw, Mama Debe’s Texas baked beans and soda for $8. If the food items do not appeal, the public is free to bring its own refreshments.
    The Summer Series line-up starts May 16 at Overlook Park and then moves to the new stage at Ashley Pond on May 23. The complete schedule of entertainment will be available next week.
    Auction Items for 2014 Summer Concert Series:

  • The Los Alamos Jewish Center will have its community Passover Seder that open to anyone interested in attending. The event will be 5:30 p.m. April 15 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
    The Seder is a ceremonial dinner filled with rituals designed to celebrate the Jewish people’s exodus from Egypt. The Seder, which is Hebrew for “order,” ushers in the week of Pesach in which Jews refrain from eating Chametz.
    The celebration of Passover commemorates the miraculous delivery of the Jews from years of slavery, ultimately culminating in the birth of the Torah, the Five Books of Moses, at Mount Sinai.
    Thus, for Jews all over the world, this annual time of renewal is a time to look at themselves and society through the lens of the slave once again. It is a time to let go of all prejudice, intolerance, closed mindedness and limited thinking. It is a time for renewed inspiration to help create a world that is free for all peoples and all religions.
    This year Rabbi Stephen Landau will lead the Community Seder as a fun evening of ritual dedicated to the memory of the Exodus from Mitzrayim, or Egypt and the importance of freedom and respect for everyone.

  • The Hilltop Garden now has an official logo, which was designed by local resident Cayla Aikin.
    While Los Alamos County has issued a Request for Proposal and the Family YMCA has been awarded it, the county must still obtain federal permission for the specific land use.
    According to a press release, Los Alamos County is working with the Family YMCA to move this along as quickly as possible, but it will likely mean that using the land will be delayed for more months than originally thought.
    In the interim, the Y is pursuing plans for developing the space, as well as hosting an alternate site for this summer.
    The community is now free to help dream up ideas for the new garden.  Post any ideas to the Family YMCA Facebook page titled “The Family Y-Hilltop Garden”
    at facebook.com/HilltopGarden
    LosAlamos.
    The Y is currently considering about the kind of shade structure that would be ideal for Hilltop Garden.
