  • The transition from middle school to high school can be challenging for many students. They encounter more freedom, older classmates and harder courses. As a result, some students have trouble keeping up academically and drop out and/or fail to graduate with their peers. The Los Alamos Public Schools and the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board have combined to provide these students with a second chance.
    JJAB has funded subscriptions to NovaNET, courseware and instructional content delivered on a state-of-the-art web platform that uses a standard web browser.
    In January, LAPS asked Lorraine Whalen to go to the high school as a half-time learning coach to proctor seniors at risk of not graduating on time in their use of NovaNET.

  • Has a pet made a difference in your life? Do you have a heartwarming story about your pet you would love to share? Well get those cameras ready, polish those smiles, and say cheese!
    Friends of the Shelter is accepting photo entries for the 2012 Shelter Alumni Calendar through Sept. 8.  They need your help because without your photos and stories, there can be no FOS calendar.
    Pet owners who have adopted a shelter animal or an abandoned or homeless animal are invited to send a photo and a brief story about their pet.
    Owners do not have to live in Los Alamos nor have adopted or rescued the animal from Los Alamos to enter.

  • “If I want to be faithful to the Bible and to my faith, but I like to listen to Lady Gaga, can I do both?”— Katie

    Before you can answer this, you have to engage in some serious thought and honest appraisal of what matters in your life.
    You have to become a critical thinker. Ask yourself why you like to listen to her: is it the sound of her voice, the lyrics of her songs?
    Perhaps you are entertained by her outlandish costumes and “out there” behavior.
    Well, taste is what it is, but you should consider that your peers and media marketers largely shape pop culture entertainment preferences.

  • Argentinean rock sound waves will float around Ashley Pond Friday night, as Los Pinguos descend on Los Alamos as part of the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series.
    The dance party band started out in Buenos Aires in 1999. When they started becoming popular in their homeland, they moved to Los Angeles, Calif. in 2001 with “nothing but their dreams,” looking for international success.
    They’ve since played all the major clubs and festivals in L.A. and most of the U.S., Europe and Asia. The “Penguins” play a mixture of Latin rhythms performed with Spanish acoustic guitars, a Cuban guitar-like instrument called a tres, a Peruvian cajon (box drum), bass and harmonizing vocals.

  • Art openings

    An opening reception for Michael Schultheis’s “Spherical Triangles of Menelaus,” will be from 5-7 p.m. Friday at David Richard Contemporary, 130 Lincoln Ave., Suite D, Santa Fe.

    Lads of Enchantment, a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, invites the public to join them in song.  Besides the enjoyment of singing in harmony, our barbershop chorus and quartets experience the thrill of performing in the community. They meet at 7:15 p.m. on Thursdays at the United Church of Los Alamos, Graves Hall. Attendees will find their chapter meetings are well planned, musically satisfying and fun. Visitors are welcome.
