  • Sheree Talman, Executive State Director for the Mrs. New Mexico Pageant, states the pageant is seeking applicants for the title of Mrs. Los Alamos.
    Once selected, the lady will advance on to represent her community in the 2012 Mrs. New Mexico Pageant on Feb. 4, 2012 at the Rodey Theatre in Albuquerque.  
    Local titleholders will compete to win a prize package valued at over $8,000 including an all expense paid trip to the nationally televised Mrs. America Pageant.
    Applicants must be at least 18 years old (no age limit), married at the time of competition and a New Mexico resident, no performing talent required.  

  • On Friday, the Chicago band, JT and the Clouds will entertain fans of the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series at Ashley Pond.
    Though they prefer not to be labeled, JT and the Clouds are bluesy, rough-edged, soulful rockers. They’ve been compared to Sam Cooke, The Band, Velvet Underground, Prince, Curtis Mayfield, Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver and M. Ward. They’ll play ballads as well as jazz, folk-rock and Motown/Philly/Memphis-sounding dance music.
    The group has been making music and touring since 2004. Last year the Chicago Tribune dubbed them as one of its “... ten artists on the bridge of breaking big in 2010.” The band is touring all over the country and the world, with Friday being Los Alamos’ turn.

  • CHICAGO — There were no free cars or vacations. No favorite things or makeovers. No celebrity guests on stage — though there were plenty in the audience.
    The finale of Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, taped Tuesday and aired Wednesday, was all about the one thing that made her a billion-dollar success: the unique connection she made with millions of viewers for 25 years. In what she called her “love letter” to fans, she made clear that to her, all those TV friendships went both ways.
    “Something in me connected with each of you in a way that allowed me to see myself in you and you in me,” Winfrey said. “I listened and grew, and I know you grew along with me.”
