  • “Russian music always touches my soul” and “I really like this symphony,” are comments made by two violinists in the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra, in reference to the rarely played symphony the group will perform as part of the Spring Concert on April 27.
    The work is not by one of the giants of Russian composers — Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich or Borodin, to name a few — but by a relatively unknown composer, Vasily Kalinnikov (1866-1901).

  • The Family YMCA is taking registration for its May 5 and June 2  First Aid, Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) certification courses.  The courses, taught by American Red Cross certified instructors, are generally scheduled for the first Saturday of each month throughout the year.
    First Aid training includes the basics of wound care, bleeding control and bandaging and provides information about poisoning, sudden illness, and how to care for other injuries.
    CPR training includes how to respond to emergency situations, recognize the signs of a heart attack and provide care for an adult who stops breathing, is choking or whose heart stops beating.

  • Family Strengths Network would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who participated in Family Festival.

    We are also grateful to all the businesses and organizations that came to share the great activities that Los Alamos has to offer to families.

  • Japanese researchers say they've successfully grown hair on bald mice. Their work, reported in the journal Nature Communications this week, could help pave the way to a similar process for people.

  • This week, we look at youth programs in our community, as we pull together to be one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People.
    The Search Institute looks at youth programs when a young person spends three or more hours per week in sports, clubs or organizations at school and/or in community organizations.
    The Search Institute is one of the partner organizations joining with America’s Promise to recognize 100 communities across the nation as being great places for young people to live.
    As a volunteer, I have been asked by Los Alamos Public Schools to champion this effort to have our community receive this recognition.

  • It is occasionally said that the atmosphere at Chamisa Elementary is like a carnival. That statement will become a reality on April 21.
    The Cheetahs will welcome the public during their annual fundraiser this weekend. Some of the offerings include sno-cones, cotton candy and games.
    The kid-friendly climate will benefit teachers, students, programs and projects to help youth, “put their best foot forward in scholarship, character and life.”
    “The carnival is open to everyone,” Tana Beverwyk-Abouda said. “Everyone, that is, who wants to have a great time for all ages, support their local school and celebrate the spring weather by being outside.”

  • Imaging standing on ice, with a view as far as you can see. Matt Heavner will describe seven years of research on the Juneau Ice field in Southeast Alaska at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, as part of the Los Alamos Mountaineers’ monthly meeting.
    Anyone who has visited the city of Juneau has very likely visited the Mendenhall Glacier, which is just the tip of the ice field. The Juneau Ice field is the fifth-largest ice field in the western hemisphere, extending through an area of 3,900 square kilometers.
