Today's Features

  • An opportunity to participate in a $20 reduced fee microchip clinic will be offered at the 2011 Dog Jog April 16. Veterinarians from the Animal Clinic of Los Alamos and Ridgeview Veterinary Hospital have donated their time and expertise to implant the microchips. The fee includes the registration of the microchip to a database that can be read by shelters and veterinary clinics throughout the United States. No sign is up required ahead of time, just stop by Chamisa School in White Rock from 9:00-10:30 am. The clinic is open to the public, even if you aren’t registered for the Dog Jog.

  • The flavor of the week is asset number 28, integrity, in the positive values category.
    An example of integrity is when a young person acts on their convictions and stands up for his or her beliefs. There’s a saying about integrity being what you do when no one is looking. I apologize for not being able to find the speaker of these words, even in the wide world of the Web.
    I did find another good one on my quest, from former Wyoming Senator Alan Simpson. Whether you agree with his politics or not, you might find the following quote interesting. “If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don’t have integrity, nothing else matters.”

  • Next Saturday, Los Alamos-area dogs and their people will gather at Chamisa Elementary in White Rock for a bit of exercise and to raise money for canines and felines, alike.
    The Dog Jog, sponsored by the Los Alamos Friends of the Shelter will kick off at 9 a.m., with registration at 8 a.m. April 16. The annual event has been held for the past 13 years, with 2011 marking its 14th year.  The Dog Jog is open to adults or children and their canine companions and is comprised of either a 5k run, or a two-mile walk.
    “You don’t have to be speedy,” said FOS past president Wendee Brunish. “Those who want to run can run, and those who want to walk can walk.”

  • Redeemer Evangelical Church has undergone many transitions in the past 30 years. The latest change has resulted in a new building at 2000 Diamond Dr.
    In the early 1970s, Grace Lutheran Church closed down and the property was sold to Ed Grothus, which became part of the “Black Hole.”
    The congregation disbanded and members moved on to other churches. One such church was Immanuel Lutheran Church in Santa Fe.  

  • Libraries are places for new beginnings and making new connections. Whether someone’s getting their first library card, learning new computer skills, planning a trip, or enjoying a program with new friends, the library is the place where their story begins.
    During National Library Week, April 10-16, library patrons can join the nation’s libraries and librarians and create their own story at their local library.
    First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country each April.
