  • It’s entirely possible that I’ve had my fill of superhero movies this summer.
    After all, I’ve seen both “The Avengers” (fun and entertaining) and “The Amazing Spider-Man” (better than the other recent Spidey incarnation) since school let out.
    So maybe, just maybe, I caught “The Dark Knight Rises” with superhero burnout — kind of like trying to stuff that last turkey sandwich into your craw five days after Thanksgiving.
    But of the final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, I have this to say: “meh.”

  • I’ve been to many concerts: country, heavy metal, blues and even a few rap concerts. I like almost all types of music and typically enjoy seeing groups perform live.
    Despite the various shows I’ve seen, I had never been to a music festival until the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival came to Albuquerque. I wasn’t quite sure how long the festival would last, or exactly what to expect. I did know this: in addition to the main stage at the Hard Rock Pavilion, there would be two additional stages on which various bands would perform.

  • Anyone that’s visited Rancho de las Golondrinas in Santa Fe knows that it’s steeped in history.
    In addition to educating visitors about Spanish Colonial ways of life, the living museum also offers various festivals and events throughout the year. One of the museum’s regular events is the Herb and Lavender Fair. This year, will mark its 10th year and will be from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
    The fair provides visitors with the opportunity to listen to Marimba and Flamenco music while celebrating their love of herbs and lavender. In addition, there will also be tours of the Las Golondrinas herb gardens, arts and crafts vendors and lavender crafts vendors.

  • Today
    The Los Alamos Community of Atheists will host a discussion regarding the relationship between morals, ethics and atheism. The  meeting will be from 6:30-8 p.m. in room one of Mesa Public Library. All are welcome.

    Come hear about the recovery efforts in Haiti from 7-8 p.m. in the gathering space at Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church. A free-will offering will be taken to support the 2012 Carter Work Project and continued rebuilding in Haiti. Refreshments will be provided.

    Thursday

  • Diedra DeMello, a longtime Los Alamos resident passed away Saturday from cancer. The American Legion Riders will have a memorial ride that will include breakfast, a poker run to Cimarron and a steak dinner. Everyone is invited to any portion of — or the entire event.
    The proceeds will go toward returning “Ma” back to Los Alamos to be buried with her brother Pat Turner.
     The ride will start with a breakfast at 7 a.m. at the American Legion, 1325 Trinity Dr. The riders will leave at 8 a.m. on their way to Cimarron for lunch at the Express St. James hotel.

  • The Rotary Club of Los Alamos would like to thank the community for its tremendous support of the United Blood Services blood drive July 12-13 at the First Baptist Church. As part of the Rotary District 5520 Governor’s Challenge, our club partnered with the very capable members of the Civitans, under the direction of Luke Ney and with the Retired Seniors Volunteer Program, under the leadership of Irene Powell.  
    Although the need for blood does not decrease during the summer, the number of donors frequently does.  Local blood supplies can fall to dangerously low levels, creating a potential health crisis for accident victims, surgical and cancer patients and newborn babies.

  • An individual’s home insurance rates may increase if they own pets. Some insurance companies are now requiring proof of pet breed, especially if they own a dog breed deemed “aggressive” or an exotic animal.
    Some agents and companies may even ask for pictures of the pets in order to finalize a rate.
    One way is to fight against this is to have a dog declared a “canine good citizen.”
    Started in 1989, the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen program focuses on teaching dogs to be well behaved at home and in the community.
