Today's Features

  • The Los Alamos Master Gardeners and the Los Alamos Photography Club feature, “Art, Gardening and Photography,” presented by Charles Mann, at 7 p.m. Sept. 14 at Fuller Lodge.
    There are many who would  tell us how to photograph our gardens, but who can tell us why we want to photograph them? Mann, a professional garden photographer, has pondered the issues of art, beauty, nature and photography and has some insights, observations and conclusions to share, along with a panoply of photographs from across the gardening spectrum. Mann suggests that people learn to use their cameras as a tool to renew their enthusiasm for gardening as well as to  revive their appreciation for the hidden beauty all around them.

  • Those who have never experienced live theatre will have the opportunity to do so.
    Theatre is a unique experience, much different than a movie or sporting event — it is all about stories, emotion and local talent. Los Alamos Little Theatre presents the “8x103” one act play festival, opening Friday.
    The title, “8x103” represents eight 10-minute plays to make up a festival, and the three symbolizes LALT’s third such production, with others in 2006 and 2008. The included plays depict world views, relationships and  even a trip to France.

  • The Los Alamos Monitor has the inside scoop on what locals are reading. Otowi Station issued a current list of  popular books for Los Alamos readers.

  • Nestled in the hills about 22 miles north of Española sits a village rich in history. It’s a “blink and you might miss it” kind of place, but the scenery surrounding the village is astounding, especially during autumn.
    With its red clay, stone formations  and stunning foliage along the Chama River, Abiquiú offers plenty of photo opportunities for visitors.
    These days, the area is known as Georgia O’Keeffe country because the New York artist made her home in Abiquiú, but it is steeped in history tied to the Abiquiú Genízaro Land Grant.

  • Thanks for helping

    About a week has passed since the Seed Ball Party on Aug. 20. The excitement has calmed down, and we have been able to peacefully resume our way of life in Los Alamos.
    I hope that in taking part in this event, you will remember the festivities and meaningful work that took place all across town. Everyone that came out had a great time, and the burned areas in Northern New Mexico will begin the process of healing.
    I am sure you may be wondering how many seed balls we made that afternoon.  Officially, I can say that we made as many as we could have made. All four sites exhausted all resources, consuming over 2,000 pounds of clay and compost, and numerous bags of seed.  

  • As we look at our first asset in the Commitment to Learning category, we find asset number 21, achievement motivation.
    It might be hard for everyone to be motivated with a three-day weekend behind us, but motivation is different for everyone.
    I think I have heard it all, but if you have an idea to share, we’d love to hear yours, even if it’s submitted anonymously.
    I have worked with teenagers for a number of years and I have heard about reward systems for report cards, a certain amount of dollars for an “A,” and a certain number for a “B.” It seems that a C doesn’t garner any attention.

  • Every Sept. 11, the citizens of the United States stop what they’re doing and get together (at least spiritually) to commemorate those lost during the World Trade Center attacks.
    While different towns hold various ceremonies to honor their heroes, the Los Alamos United Way Youth Team proposes a completely different experience from the usual ceremonies and parades: Taste the Sky.
    This year’s event will be from 5-8 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Los Alamos County Airport. This should sound exciting to Los Alamos residents because aside from the location, there will also be family-oriented activities.
