Today's Features

  • The Los Alamos High School NJROTC Unarmed Drill team opened up the season this year by taking third place at the Early Bird Invitational last week at Valley High School in Albuquerque. Eighteen schools competed at this event from across the state and included JROTC units from every military branch.
    The Los Alamos High School team consisted of nine girls including cadets: Rachel Barthell, Kayla Benson, Karina Bequet-Stidham, Casandra Brewer-Houlton, Tristan Graham, Victoria Hypes, Gianna Maggiore, Mikyla Smith and Jodi Thomas. Analicia Ronquillo, whose command voice earned the title “Best Unarmed Commander” in the Commanders Cup division, commanded the nine girls. The armed team and three color guards finished with an average of fourth place, with the unit as whole finishing third. The next test for all of the teams takes place  Oct. 26 and 27, when they travel to the New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell.

  • Welcome to October and the asset category of support.

    This category encompasses assets one through six and includes: family support, positive family communication, other adult relationships, caring neighborhood, caring school climate and parent involvement in schooling.

    Our first two areas of focus are numbers one and two, family support and positive family communication.

    I would like to draw attention to adult responsibility when it comes to being supportive and having positive communication with youth.

    Do you reap what you sow? I know several adults who don’t hesitate to bash their children on social media and to friends, even when kids are within earshot.

  • It's a medical nightmare: a 24-year-old man endures 350 surgeries since childhood to remove growths that keep coming back in his throat and have spread to his lungs, threatening his life. Now doctors have found a way to help him by way of a scientific coup that holds promise for millions of cancer patients.

    The bizarre case is the first use in a patient of a new discovery: how to keep ordinary and cancerous cells alive indefinitely in the lab.

    The discovery allows doctors to grow "mini tumors" from each patient's cancer in a lab dish, then test various drugs or combinations on them to see which works best. It takes only a few cells from a biopsy and less than two weeks to do, with materials and methods common in most hospitals.

    Although the approach needs much more testing against many different types of cancer, researchers think it could offer a cheap, simple way to personalize treatment without having to analyze each patient's genes.

  • Italian music will fill the Hilltop House Hotel, when Assets In Action hosts “A Night in Italy.”
    Local Chef Jarda Belmonte of Tasty Creations by Jarda, will stir, sauce and sauté her way through the kitchen to benefit the local program of youth and community development.
    “After raising three daughters, I believe you can never do enough to help them along their way,” Belmonte said when asked why she decided to help the local program.
    The Hilltop House Hotel, also home of AIA’s Community Asset Awards, was ready and willing to work with the fundraising team to make it happen.
    After a scheduling bump, the event has been slated for Oct. 20, with cocktail hour from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and dinner starting at 6:30 p.m.
    The multi-faceted menu will be a buffet, just like mama use to make, as Belmonte delivers various dishes of comfort food meant to stir the soul, while invoking memories or perhaps future trips to Italy.
     “Cooking is like therapy for me,” Belmonte said. “I am relaxed and comfortable when I am cooking.”
    Guests will find themselves in an Italian intervention as Belmonte prepares ensalada caprese, braciole, mussels in marinara, chicken marsala, Italian-style pork roast and various pastas. The meal will include wine and dessert for $40 a person.

  • The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on site adoptable pets waiting for their forever home.

    DOGS
    Ciera — Spayed female Shepherd-cross who likes to get to know her human associates before she shares her story with them.
    Coqueta — Six-year-old spayed female Retriever/Chow-mix surrendered. Good with adults and gentle children. Has been an outdoor dog.
    Four Border Collie puppies (Desmond, Bones, Reggie and Romper) — Four-months-old, all males. They are pretty shy and the volunteers are working on socialization. Keep watching as they develop into fun, approachable pups.
    Houdini — Not a magician, but rather an adorable black-and-white Spaniel/Border Collie-mix. He recently got a bath and is ready to show off his lovely, clean coat. He is affectionate and sweet with both dogs and people and would love to accompany his new person everywhere.
