  • The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on-site adoptable pets; others are in foster care with loving, temporary homes.
    All of our fully reconditioned adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro-chipped.
    Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  
    We get lots of roaming cats and dogs. Don’t assume your cat was a meal for a coyote. Check with the shelter and see if your best friend is bunking with us. Proof of rabies vaccination is required when claiming your pet.

  • Thanks for helping the community
     
    We wish to thank Los Alamos National Bank again for a very generous contribution to the Gift Fund of the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center. LANB’s support allows lower-income children and adults in Los Alamos and surrounding communities to have access to our programs of lessons, exercise and recreation.
    During 2010, recipients of all ages were supported by this program and greatly enjoyed using the Aquatic Center.

  • I’d like to take this opportunity to break from the planned column of the week just to speak about relationships, which is what assets are really all about.
    The particular relationship I’d like to speak about is my relationship with State Representative Jeanette Wallace.
    In 2000, I was hired as the Maternal and Child Health Council Coordinator. The job was to look at the issues of women of childbearing age and their children. I assumed, since I interviewed at 8-1/2 months pregnant for the job, I was a shoo in, but we’ll never know if that was the case.
    At one point the councils were in jeopardy of losing their funding and we rallied the troops (all state coordinators) to the Roundhouse, for an “Educate the Legislature Day.”

  • A choral concert, “If Music Be the Food of Love, Sing On,” will be at 7 p.m. April 30 at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church’s Kelly Hall, 3900 Trinity Dr.

    The concert, performed by Coro de Camara, will feature music from the Renaissance to today, including pieces from Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Durufle, Copland, Thompson and others.

    The group does not charge admission to its performances, but donations are accepted at the door.
    Coro de Camara is a chorus of the room (or chamber) as the Spanish name translates and is made up of a group of 16-24 vocalists, depending on the repertoire.

  • NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Actor Nicolas Cage was arrested after he got drunk in the city's French Quarter and argued in the street with his wife over whether a house they were in front of was theirs, police said Saturday.

    Police said in a press release Saturday that Cage was arrested the previous evening. Police said the couple was in front of a home that Cage insisted they were renting. She said it wasn't theirs, and Cage then grabbed her arm.

    The release said Cage started hitting vehicles and tried to get into a taxi. A police officer saw that Cage was drunk and told him to get out of the cab. Cage then started yelling at the officer.

  • “Do I really have to pay taxes? I mean, does the Bible teach that I should give my money to the government?” — Katie

    To grasp the biblical perspective, we need to understand that taxes were very much part of life in first-century Israel. At that time, Judea was subject to Rome — and the empire was committed to collecting tribute from its conquered subjects. In the provinces, local citizens were commissioned to do this job. The tax collector could “legally” overcharge and keep for himself the difference.  Thus, the Jewish tax collector was disdained as an enemy collaborator and social pariah (Mt. 9:9-13; Lk. 19:1-10).

  • During the season of Great Lent, the community of Saint Dimitri Orthodox Church in Los Alamos has participated in traditions of the Orthodox Church. These traditions include Lenten fasting, meditation and mid-week Lenten Liturgy.
    Blini Breakfast, last month, is a meal with Russian blini, dairy and fish, which marks the last meal for non-Lenten foods until Pascha (Easter). This meal has been a tradition in Los Alamos for more than 10 years.
    Lenten Meditations this year are based on the writings of Saint Isaac the Syrian. Hieromonk John using the rare text, “The Ascetical Writings of Saint Isaac the Syrian,” has led the meditations.
