  • The United Church of Los Alamos recently hired Kara Windler as its Director of Christian Ministries (DCE).
    Windler began her relationship with the United Church in 2012 when her and husband Ken arrived in Los Alamos.
    “A good friend of mine from college grew up in the United Church so, of course, I had to check it out when I moved to Los Alamos,” said Windler. “What kept me coming back was the church’s ecumenical spirit and people’s willingness to dive deep into questions of faith.”
    Prior to becoming a member of the church staff, Windler attended their Women’s Book Study, and their Morning Bible Study.
    She found the staff very supportive and enjoyed their interest in always doing what is best for the community.
    Kara has also worked with the Ministerial Alliance, is part of the Los Alamos Police and Fire Department Chaplain’s Corps, providing pastoral care during times of crisis. She has also worked with Los Alamos Medical Center and Los Alamos Visiting Nurses as a Chaplain and has served as the Associate for Liturgy and Pulpit Supply at the White Rock Presbyterian Church.
    Those interested can learn more about the United Church of Los Alamos by visiting their website at unitedchurchla.org.

  • Horses are beautiful and strong creatures, but they still depend on their owners to keep them healthy.
    One disease horse owners should be aware of is Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), a virus that can destroy red blood cells, causing weakness, anemia, and death.
    Michelle Coleman, assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, explained how the disease is spread.
    “EIA is an infectious viral disease,” Coleman said. “The most common mode of transmission of EIA is by the transfer of virus-infected blood-feeding insects, such as horse flies. It can also be transmitted through the use of blood-contaminated syringes, surgical equipment, or the transfusion of infected blood or blood products. Although uncommon, transmission can also occur through the placenta in infected mares.”
     There is no treatment, or safe and effective vaccine, available for this disease, so horses that are positive for EIA should be isolated from other horses.
    Most horses infected with EIA also do not show any signs of illness or disease, so it is important to constantly maintain good hygiene and disinfection principles, such as controlling insects in the horse’s environment. 

  • In the cat world, this week’s pet is known as a team player.
    Mando, a year-old Siamese with crème and seal point highlights, will be there when you start your next project or putting the finishing touches on your last one. He loves to know what is going on around him.
    According to the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter, where he currently resides, he also has some tricks up his furry sleeve. Apparently he rolls over on command – or he often does, because he’s still a cat.
    He checks all the positive boxes: good with kids, housebroken, and he’s indoor only. He doesn’t seem to mind dogs – perhaps he appreciates them for their entertainment value – and he likes other cats.
    His blue eyes are hypnotic and usually upon you. He’s adorable and attentive. Available for recruitment, so sign him up.
    Please contact the County Animal Shelter 662-8179 or email at Police-psa@lacnm.us.

  • EVERGREEN, Colo. – In “Blessings, My Child,” Ginger Payne equips parents and caregivers with a practical tool that builds a solid spiritual foundation with the children in their lives.
    Everyone raising a child understands the challenge of juggling workand family responsibilities.
    Then add to it the desire to raise children who will love and serve God for the rest of their lives. It can feel overwhelming.
    Many grown-ups want to communicate this message and build a spiritual relationship with their children, but lack confidence, feel ill-equipped, or don’t have the time to actually follow through on their intentions.
    What began with a handful of blessings, written by a retired schoolteacher, grew into a book that engages both children and adults.
    “Blessings, My Child” includes 101 biblically-based messages of love from God that nourish the soul of the young reader-and its corresponding Scripture, more than discussion and 101 full-color illustrations that engage the young reader and provide material for further discussion.
    All of this can be completed in as little as 10 minutes a day.
    “Writing Blessings, My Child wasn’t on the radar screen when I
    started,” Payne said. “I began by writing blessings for

  • JERUSALEM — Israel’s nationalist government may be unpopular with Western liberals and much of its domestic press corps, but it has found a close friend among the world’s evangelical Christians and their media outlets.
    The government this week is hosting a first-of-its-kind summit for Christian journalists, featuring softball questions, mutual admiration and a welcome respite for embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. His outreach to evangelical leaders reflects striking tactical parallels to his close ally and fellow media basher, President Donald Trump.
    About 130 journalists from some 30 countries are participating in the four-day summit, which ended Wednesday.
    The world’s largest broadcasters, including the Christian Broadcasting Network, Daystar, Trinity Broadcasting Network and God TV, were all represented.
    Nitzan Chen, the director of Israel’s Government Press Office, said he believed the summit was long overdue, and that planners chose the 50th anniversary celebrations of Israel’s capture of east Jerusalem as a fitting occasion for the conference.

  • Members of the Los Alamos Middle School Jazz Band performed for onlookers Tuesday night at Fuller Lodge.

  • The Sangre de Cristo Chorale will begin its 40th anniversary season this weekend in Santa Fe and Los Alamos with “Autumn Legacy.”
    The first performance will be Saturday at the First Presbyterian Church in Santa Fe, followed by a Sunday performance at the United Church of Los Alamos. Both performances will begin at 4 p.m.
    The centerpiece of the concerts will be four pieces honoring the legacy of Monteverdi on the 450th anniversary of his birth. It will also feature works by Fauré, Stephen Paulus and Eric Eric Whitacre. There will also be Chorale premieres and other favorites that will create an inspiring autumn afternoon.
    Dr. Bradley Ellingboe will lead the concerts as the guest conductor, and Nate Salazar will be his accompanist.
    Tickets are $20 in advance, or $25 at the door. Attendees under 18 years old get in for free both days. Tickets can be ordered online at sdcchorale.org.
