  • The Lads of Enchantment will have their Annual Barbershop Harmony Show at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 28 and 29 at the United Church of Los Alamos.
    The show will feature songs and entertainment by the Lads of Enchantment Chorus and Quartets, Los Alamos High School’s Bel Canto female ensemble and special guest quartet, “Reprise,” the 2001 Collegiate champion and semifinalist at the 2002 Internationals.
    This year’s songs by the LOE and Bel Canto are drawn from different eras of the 20th century.  
    They vary in tempo and style, but they are connected by the theme, “Nostalgia Ain’t What It Used to Be,” and the onstage contemplations of the LOE’s two high school members, Ethan Clements and Bear Schacht.

  • The autumn
    winds have blown in the inevitably changing season, casting leaves from green to deep hues of gold and red. Locals and visitors scurry into the mountains in hopes of catching the last glimpses of this colorful transformation.
    The journey, thus far, followed N.M. 4 through Jemez Springs and on to N.M. 485, traveling west to Gilman Tunnels. From Gilman, the road turns into Forest Service 376 where the journey stops at Porter Landing before entering Lake Fork Canyon.

  • This week, I’m off topic again as we are still in the asset category of support.
    I will also say that I may be getting on my soapbox, so proceed with caution.
    This week, I’d like us, as a community, to prepare our children to be losers. I don’t mean I want them to be losers, I just mean it is a reality they must be ready to accept.
    When I see so many adult examples of not being a gracious loser, combined with children who seem to crumble when they suffer the smallest setback, I worry.
    I tend to indulge in an occasional cooking show on the weekend. I’m usually just hoping to find a new recipe idea, try a new ingredient or see a cupcake I’d like to make.
