  • The Los Alamos Master Gardeners will be hosting a Garden Fair at the Demonstration Garden on Central Avenue Saturday from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
    A wide variety of garden activities and seminars will be available for the gardening public. Tours of the garden, activities for children and information on a range of topics from plant selection, irrigation, gopher management, a plant clinic and a plant sale will be offered at the fair.
    Master Gardeners will be available throughout the fair to talk about the diverse garden designs and answer questions.
    This week has been designated National Garden Week by the National Garden Club. The National Garden Club, founded in 1929, is the largest volunteer gardening organization in the world.

  • Welcome to interactive media, albeit a bit old school.
    Earlier this week, I was at a meeting where we discussed what ties you to your school. The question isn’t rhetorical. I really want to know.
    I don’t care if it was when you were in school or now that your kids or grandkids are in school, what is it that makes you fond of the place?
    I really want the answer and will give you several ways to tell me. I would also like to know if you don’t have that tie or fondness and what caused it to become that way?
    I don’t want to tell you my thoughts, but I’m interested to know if they are similar.

  • 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.

  • It takes a special kind of lawman to carry on for 20 years in the Wild West of TV.

    Matt Dillon, the mythical marshal of Dodge City, stood tall — all 6 feet, 6 inches of him — on "Gunsmoke" from 1955 to 1975. He outlasted dozens of other Western heroes while making history on TV's longest-running dramatic series, a record that held until NBC's "Law & Order" tied the CBS Western's record in 2010.

    Through all those gunslinging years, James Arness, who died Friday, kept Marshal Dillon righteous, peace-seeking and, most of all, believable.

  • “I heard that there is a correlation between church attendance and obesity.  If this is true, what should we do about it?” — Larry

    Sure enough, it’s true! A study presented at a recent meeting of the American Heart Association revealed that young adults who frequently attend religious activities are more likely to become obese than those who don’t.  Presumably this is due to the fact that religious gatherings traditionally include “comfort foods” that are high in fat and calories.
