  • From China to New York, place your bets! Tie the knot! Make a wish!

    Friday marked the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011. Around the world, people celebrated the triple convergence of 11s with a splash.

    Some 1,000 ethnic Chinese couples exchanged vows across Malaysia on a date viewed as auspicious and romantic. In China, a special "1111" train started at 11:11 a.m. on the No. 11 line in Shanghai.

    "The numbers rhyme with one husband, one wife and one soul in Chinese and signifies a marriage that would last a lifetime," said nurse Pua Kim Giok, 25, who tied the knot with engineer Lee Chin Siong, 27. They were among 460 couples who got married at the popular Thean Hou Temple in Kuala Lumpur.

  • Sage Cottage Montessori preschool gives our sincere thanks and appreciation to Daniels Fund and the Northern New Mexico Health Grant Group for their financial support allowing us to send teachers to the National Early Childhood Conference.

    Northern New Mexico Health Grant Group is a joint initiative of Con Alma Health Foundation and the Los Alamos Medical Center Auxiliary.  In May 2002, the Los Alamos Medical Center was sold by Banner Health Systems, a non-profit corporation, to Province HealthCare, a for-profit corporation.

  • Recently, the Pajarito Mountain Lodge was aglow with fall colors and full of generosity and cheer, as attendees of the Kids Ski Pajarito Benefit Dinner enjoyed an evening of food, music and fun.  
    The benefit dinner raised more than $9,000, which will go toward equipment rental, lift tickets and lessons for underprivileged youth.  
    Members of the Leadership Los Alamos Class of 2010 organized  the dinner to raise money for a new program being offered at Pajarito Mountain.
    The program will offer financial assistance with ski lessons as well as equipment to children ages six to 18. Working with regional organizations, the Ski Club will spread the word of this new opportunity.
