  • Why is Eastern Orthodox Christian “Easter” THIS Sunday? - JBA

    Actually, Orthodox Easter was last Sunday. In the last article, we mentioned how the feast of Pascha lasts the entire week following Easter Sunday. To be more precise, it is as if the midnight service continues without breaking until the next Sunday.
    We call this week after Pascha “Bright Week” because all is filled with the light of the Resurrection. Following Bright Week a shift occurs and we remain in the feast for another 33 days. That is until the Feast of the Ascension.

  • Today
    The Los Alamos High School Olions present their spring musical at 7 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday at Duane Smith Auditorium. Tickets are $14 for adults, $8 for seniors and students; and can be purchased at Otowi Station Book store or at the door.

  • We thank Los Alamos National Bank again for a very generous contribution to the Gift Fund of the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center.
    LANB’s support allows lower-income children and adults in Los Alamos and surrounding communities to have access to our programs of lessons, exercise and recreation.
    During 2011, recipients of all ages were supported by this program and greatly enjoyed using the Aquatic Center.

  • An opportunity is available Saturday at the 2012 Dog Jog to participate in a $20 reduced fee microchip clinic. Veterinarians from Animal Clinic of Los Alamos and Ridgeview Veterinary Hospital have donated their time and expertise to implant the microchips.
    The fee includes the registration of the microchip to a database that can be read by shelters and veterinary clinics throughout the United States.
    No sign is up required ahead of time, just stop by Chamisa Elementary School in White Rock from 9-10:30 am. The clinic is open to the public; participation in the Dog Jog is not required.
    The best reason to have an animal micro chipped is the improved chance that the animal will be reunited with its owner if it becomes lost or stolen.

  • Art openings

    Zane Bennett Contemporary Arts announces a video installation and exhibition of prints by Santa Fe artist Mitchell Marti. Also showing are works that reflect Baltimore artist Soledad Salameé’s passion for the Earth’s natural resources. The shows open Friday and continues through May 18.

  • NEW YORK (AP) — In a move to inject new life into its kookiness, “30 Rock” is going live this week.
    It will be the second such outing for the NBC comedy, which is normally a polished, single-camera filmed affair. It went live for a night in October 2010 with an episode performed during the show’s normal time slot, then re-staged for West Coast viewers.
    The same plan will be followed this Thursday: Originating from NBC’s Studio 8H (fabled home of “Saturday Night Live”), “30 Rock” will air live for viewers in the Eastern and Central time zones at 8:30 p.m. EDT, then be reprised at 8:30 PDT for the rest of the country.

  • NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — It’s not his health but a family feud that is bothering George Jones.
    The 80-year-old country star posted a video message on his website Wednesday, thanking fans as he recovers from an upper respiratory infection. He then accused his daughter Georgette Lennon of spreading lies about him on the Internet.
    He was hospitalized for nearly a week last month and had to postpone shows.
