  • Welcome Back! Did you spend a portion of the last 10 days building assets? I’ll bet you did! There’s nothing like a huge evacuation to bring a state together.

    The time may not have been spent building the assets in youth, but there was an outpouring of asset building within communities.

  • The Los Alamos Juvenile Justice Advisory Board is up and running after the evacuation and continues to offer services to local youth and families. 

    JJAB aims to engage youth through both prevention and intervention programs. 

  • More change is in the air for the world of e-books and e-audio books. NetLibrary, the Los Alamos County Library System’s current downloadable e-content service, will retire its current interface. In its place will be a newer, sleeker interface for downloading e-content, and with it comes a new name: EbscoHost.

    In addition to a new look and a new name, EbscoHost will also include enhanced features that will make viewing, listening and downloading content a smoother experience. 

  • “I don’t know much about classical guitar,” said Ann McLaughlin, the new artistic director of the Los Alamos Concert Association. “But Eliot Fisk’s agent sent a CD of Fisk’s transcription of George Rochberg’s variations on the famous Paganini theme. I remembered Rochberg’s music from the 1960s, which was pretty atonal, so I was skeptical. But I slapped the CD into my car player and by the time I got from home to Smith’s I had to stop and listen to the end. I was so knocked out.”

  • Betty Ford said things that first ladies just don't say, even today. And 1970s America loved her for it.

    According to Mrs. Ford, her young adult children probably had smoked marijuana — and if she were their age, she'd try it, too. She told "60 Minutes" she wouldn't be surprised to learn that her youngest, 18-year-old Susan, was in a sexual relationship (an embarrassed Susan issued a denial).

    She mused that living together before marriage might be wise, thought women should be drafted into the military if men were, and spoke up unapologetically for abortion rights, taking a position contrary to the president's. "Having babies is a blessing, not a duty," Mrs. Ford said.

  •  Ned’s on the Rio Grande hosts a benefit concert for firefighters fighting the Las Conchas fire. Local bands will perform this Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. – 6 p.m. both days. Admission is $5.00 per person and all proceeds will be donated to relief efforts via American Red Cross.
    Ken Gattas, owner of Ned’s on the Rio Grande, says the concert is meant to celebrate firefighters and provide resources for those who risk their lives and work incredibly hard to fight these devastating fires. “We hope this concert will help raise money to purchase supplies needed for these firefighters.”

  • “We are wondering how Jesus viewed the end of time. Did He think it would be soon or far in the future?’”— Shannon and Kristina

    The answer to your question is “both/and.” In His discourse on the end of time, Jesus’ words revealed two perspectives.  
    The first portrayed a sense of immediacy: “This generation will not pass away before these things happen” (Mt. 24:34). Jesus looked around at His closest friends and told them that in a short time, their world would come to an end. The fulfillment of this statement happened, in fact, within 40 years (A.D. 70), when the Romans as a consequence of Jewish rebellion destroyed Jerusalem.
