Today's Features

  • What a summer. It was too dry, then too wet and there were no Fourth of July fireworks in White Rock. It seems like the fire hollowed out the middle of summer, schedules were thrown off and everyone felt a little disconnected from each other.
    What we need is a good party. We need to get together for a fun afternoon, bring the kids and grandkids, enjoy the beautiful fall weather, the gift of community and the treasure of friends and family.
    We should have no agenda and no program, just free popcorn, cotton candy, snow cones, ice cream, balloons and more.
    We could have giant bounce houses, the Orbitron, fire trucks, police cars and other cool cars. The Hill Stompers band could show up and perform. The afternoon could conclude with free barbecue and music.

  • Today

    A Tsankawi Evening Walk will be at 6:30 p.m. Reservations are required. Call 672-3861, ext. 517. The walk is free.

    The White Rock Family Friendly Film Series presents “The Ant Bully,” at 7 p.m. in the White Rock Town Hall.

    Sharon Argenbright, a nurse at Christus St.Vincent Hospital and a representative of the union to Central Labor Council, will be a guest speaker at the Democratic Party of Los Alamos’ meeting from 7-8 p.m. in the Mesa Public Library, second floor. She will talk about the labor practices Christus St. Vincent used and how they were able to keep collective bargaining that ensured that the patient/nurse ratio did not increase, as the hospital wanted.

  • Volunteers needed

    “Do you like to talk? The Los Alamos Historical Museum is looking for volunteers to greet visitors in the museum and tell them about the great history of our community. No experience required! We’ll train you. Docent shifts are weekdays from 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m. and 1-4:30 p.m. to mid-October and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 1-4 p.m. the rest of the year. Contact the museum offices at 662-6272 for more information.
    Drivers needed

    Los Alamos Lions Club provides services to the community. One activity is the HELP program. The program provides free transportation for medical treatment and appointments outside the county.  

  • The Family YMCA is taking registration for its free Diabetes Education and Prevention program.  
    Topics to be covered are: what Type 2 diabetes is; what having pre-diabetes means; the signs, symptoms and risk factors associated with type 2 diabetes; how to reduce your risk of getting type 2 diabetes; and how to make the necessary lifestyle changes to lower your risk.

  • The 2011 Homecoming Parade will be Sept. 30. Staging begins at 1:30 p.m. on 4th Street, in the Canyon School parking lot.
    The parade will step off at the intersection of 4th Street and Central Avenue promptly at 2:30 p.m. Parade participants should arrive no later than 2 p.m.
    The parade will head down Central Avenue, past the judges’ stand at Starbucks, and down to Rose Street. This year’s homecoming parade theme is, “Short Circuit the Chargers,” pertaining to Albuquerque Academy.
    Entries for the parade are $10-$15. Checks should be made payable to LAHS and must be hand delivered to the LAHS bookkeeper at the high school.
    The bookkeeper is located off of Orange Street, behind Duane Smith Auditorium.

  • Wikipedia defines the phrase, “Death by a thousand cuts” as a torture originating in Imperial China. In modern usage, it has come to mean a major negative change that happens in small, unnoticed increments so it isn’t perceived as objectionable. In other words, creeping normalcy.
    Death by a thousand paper cuts might be a good phrase for what is happening to the public school systems. Strapped for money to purchase supplies, teachers and administrators are forced to make decisions about what not to buy.

  • Book signings

    Linda Mae Valencia, a Rio Rancho resident, will sign her book, “God, the Angels and Me,” from 2-4 p.m. Friday at Albertsons, 3001 S. St. Francis Dr., Santa Fe.

    Classes

    A Double Wine Basket class with Irene Smith will be offered from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday at the Española Valley Fiber Arts Center. Fee, $56/$70, with a $20 materials fee. For more information Call Linda or Rachel at 747-3577 or email Education@evfac.org to register.

    Lads of Enchantment, a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, invites the public to join them in song.  Besides the enjoyment of singing in harmony, our barbershop chorus and quartets experience the thrill of performing in the community.
