Today's Features

  • The Los Alamos Choral Society presents their Spring Concert at 3 p.m. May 20 at the United Church of Los Alamos, featuring songs of love and romance in a program titled, “Love In Bloom.”
    From the 1959 musical “Gypsy,” with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and music by Jule Styne, comes the hit song “Everything’s Coming Up Roses.”
    Morten Lauridsen (b. 1943) — a composer from the late 20th and 21st century — has developed his trademark style of composition of which “Dirait on,” from the song cycle “Chanson Des Roses” is an example.

  • State Rep. Jim Hall stopped for a lengthy visit at Los Alamos Middle School last Tuesday. Here, seventh grade student Dylan Sanchez speaks with Hall during one of three lunch periods. Hall asked students about their education, shared details about his school life and work at the Legislature and took part in an update on the Los Alamos Youth Food Project. Hall also took time to visit staff during their luncheon hosted by Prinicpal Rex Kilburn, Assistant Principal Anna Vargas-Gutierrez and Summit Foods.

  • The hard work of many dedicated volunteers resulted in a successful Northern New Mexico Spring Arts and Crafts Fair. It was a fantastic day with perfect weather, giving people the opportunity to visit with friends and mingle among the booths.
    In addition to the Los Alamos Arts Council, the fair benefited from the efforts of RSVP members who posted flyers around Los Alamos before the fair, the Coffee House Café, Joe Baldanado  and Darcie Marino for providing the beverages and food for the event.
    We also wish to thank L.A. County Parks Department for mowing and trimming the grounds around Fuller Lodge, as well as cleaning up trash during the fair.

  • “Doing Good and Doing Well: Embodying Your Values in Your Investment Choices,” a talk by Johann Klaassen, vice president of Investment Services for First Affirmative Financial Network in Colorado Springs, will be May 21 at Pajarito Environmental Education Center.
    While many people shop carefully and consciously in order to maximize their impact and minimize their footprint, relatively few people try to do the same with their savings and investments.
    Those who ask their financial advisors about investing according to their values are often discouraged — but it is possible to direct money’s power in the marketplace to shape the world according to one’s values, and this can be done without sacrificing competitive returns.

  • The always touring Igor and the Red Elvises will bring their newest evolvement to Northern New Mexico May 23, giving residents a taste of what has kept international audiences captivated for generations.
    If Igor and Red Elvises aren’t in the middle of a tour, they are getting ready for the next one — this is a group that is constantly in motion and consistently evolving. Singer, songwriter, guitarist and showman Igor Yuzov is perpetually globetrotting and in the process, he has found scores of musicians to bring into the fold of this increasingly international party band.
    The Red Elvises started as a Russian group, playing what they dubbed “Siberian Surf Rock.”
