Today's Features

  • 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.”

  • Sometimes we try really hard to like things and no matter how hard we try, it just doesn’t work.
    Let’s just preface by saying that sometimes if you have to try to like something, then something must be wrong.
    Such was the case with the musical “Cowboy Poet.”
    It would be easy enough to blame the nasty weather outside or maybe it was the length of the show (two-and-a-half hours). Whatever the reason, it seemed as though many in the audience couldn’t help but wonder when the Los Alamos Little Theatre production would end.
