  • A Los Alamos tradition for 44 years, the annual Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair will be from 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m. Saturday at the Los Alamos Middle School. The Los Alamos Arts Council is hosting the event.
    To keep the tradition of a pre-Thanksgiving holiday shopping spree alive, the LAAC has lined up more than 100 artists from across New Mexico. As in past years, jewelry, pottery, painting, metal work, fabric arts and photography will be among the highlights, as well as a wide range of holiday-oriented crafts.
    New artists and longtime exhibitors will be on hand. Kathy Hjeresen,  who sells handmade jewelry and woodworker Adrian Martinez, both fair regulars, will return this year.

  • Hunger and poverty are rampant in the world and escalating in the current economic conditions.
    The CROP Hunger Walk and Turkey Trot is a local community event aimed at helping to ease those problems. The event is an opportunity for everyone to “walk the talk” to fight hunger and poverty in the community and around the world.

    Those interested in participating should be there between 1-1:45 p.m. to register, sponsor a walker or both.

  • This week I’d like you to think about community and how local businesses contribute to it.
    On Nov. 26, the second annual Small Business Saturday will be sponsored throughout the country.
    The goal is for you to shop locally and help energize the economy by stimulating local business.
    If you have ever heard the presentation by Kevin Holsapple of the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation about how spending your money local works, you will never shop the same again.
    I understand that sometimes you just need to (or want to) get off the hill to do some shopping, but when you can buy something, even something small, buy it here.
