  • Rachel Carson will make a visit to Los Alamos at 7 p.m. April 18 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
    This appearance will actually be by Ann Beyke, who will take on Carson’s persona in a performance known as a Chautauqua.
    Imagine spring without singing birds. Carson’s cautionary tale, “Silent Spring,” warned of the effects of unchecked and unchallenged use of pesticides. Published in 1962, her book was applauded by some and considered pseudoscience by others.  But regardless of what anyone thinks about the merits of her book, it awakened the American public to problems of the overuse of pesticides and other pollutants.

  • The possibility of espionage in a laboratory town is a very real threat. It’s hard not to imagine that spies are lurking and working in towns like Los Alamos.
    Former Los Alamos National Laboratory physicist and author Michael Gamble brings those fears to life in his book, “Zeroscape.”
    A modern-day espionage thriller set in Los Alamos and Santa Fe, “Zeroscape” follows Richard Adams, a disgraced professor from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. LANL has recruited Adams, “verifying the operability of a post-Soviet Republic’s gamma ray laser,” according to a description of “Zeroscape.”

  • The Piñon sixth grade leadership team planted spinach and lettuce with the Los Alamos Youth Food Project, before heading off for spring break last week. The State Farm Youth Advisory Board-funded project has a goal to plant with each elementary school in Los Alamos.

  • Thank you, Steve and Judi Brownell, for all the memories

    March 30 was a bittersweet day for the Los Alamos community and the Brownells.
    This is the day that Steve and Judi Brownell closed Brownell’s Hallmark store. We are happy for them because they can now retire, move close to their children/grandchildren and enjoy life. We are also very sad to see them go.  
    Brownell’s Hallmark was not just a store, it was a memory maker.  
    Shortly after they bought the Hallmark store, they had an open house for Easter and allowed the local children to take their photo with the Easter Bunny.
