  • The White Rim and Island in the Sky sound like places from fantasy, but these places are real and Dennis Brandt has spent years exploring them.
    At 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Fuller Lodge, Brandt will present highlights from mountain biking and hiking trips in Canyonlands National Park. Island in the Sky overlooks the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers, near Moab, Utah. The White Rim is a layer of white sandstone boasting a 100-mile loop road enjoyed by mountain bikers, motorcyclists, four-wheel drive enthusiasts and hikers. The Rim trip bestows views of snow-capped mountains, sheer cliffs and the vast maze of canyon country. Nearby expanses of slick rock offer rock climbing, mountain biking, canyoneering and whitewater boating.

    Do you know young people that stand up for their convictions/beliefs and tell the truth even when it is not easy?
    Do you?
    My answer to that would have to be, sometimes.
    I don’t have a problem telling the truth, but what does one do when the person not telling the truth has a position of power over you?
    It may or may not be in a work setting, it may or may not be in an organizational or cultural setting, but what does one do when the person not telling the truth or doing wrong is an adult?
    I would tell my children, I don’t know what to do.

  • Youth and their sponsors from the United Church of Los Alamos will  attempt to raise funds for a week-long stay near the beaches of Puerto Peñasco, Mexico, but the effort isn’t being done for a spring break vacation, although the time spent could be fun.

    A silent and live auction will be held today to raise the money needed to cover a variety of costs for the trip.
    “The auction raises money that we send to Amor Ministries,” said Laura Erickson, the trip co-chair. “They provide the camp facility and have all the building materials ready for us when we arrive.”
