Today's Features

  • The Los Alamos community has the opportunity to join in an international day of action titled, “Moving Planet,” on Sept. 24, organized by 350.org.
    This day will be a symbolic event to “move beyond fossil fuels” both figuratively — by pouring into the streets on bikes, skateboards, and on foot to “move” around the communities — and literally, by taking community action and calling for a shift in energy systems.

  • Boy Scout Troop 129 of White Rock celebrated a Court of Honor Aug. 9, for the promotion of John Scott Alison and Benjamin Eric Nelson to the rank of Eagle Scout.  Senior Patrol Leader Aaron Bao presided.
    Alison has been a Cub Scout since third grade, and earning the Arrow of Light, he joined Troop 129 in 2004. He has thus been active for over seven years. He moved through the ranks, earning 39 merit badges and said he most loved the outdoor activities, especially climbing the 14ers. His altitude record in the troop is 14,421-foot Mt. Massive of Colorado. Prior to that climb, he conquered Kit Carson and Challenger Point on the same day.

  • “Are those people in Kansas who picket soldiers’ funerals typical Baptists? If not, why don’t I hear ‘real Baptists’ denouncing their actions?” — Dan

    Good question. I can speak personally to this one because it hits close to home.
     That this group calls itself “Baptist” is highly unfortunate because doing so casts a long shadow over good folks who share the name. This “fringe” group does not appear to practice much of anything that resembles historic Baptist beliefs.
    Many “real Baptists,” as you say, have indeed denounced the unconscionable actions of this group.

  • There’s nothing like moving to a new town and being told to get out, but that’s almost what happened to The United Church of Los Alamos’ new Pastor David Elton, soon after his arrival in Los Alamos.
