  • The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on-site adoptable pets; others are in foster care with loving, temporary homes.
    All of our fully reconditioned adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro-chipped.
    Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  
    We get lots of roaming cats and dogs. Don’t assume your cat was a meal for a coyote. Check with the shelter and see if your best friend is bunking with us. Proof of rabies vaccination is required when claiming your pet.

  • Thanks for helping the community
     
    We wish to thank Los Alamos National Bank again for a very generous contribution to the Gift Fund of the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center. LANB’s support allows lower-income children and adults in Los Alamos and surrounding communities to have access to our programs of lessons, exercise and recreation.
    During 2010, recipients of all ages were supported by this program and greatly enjoyed using the Aquatic Center.

  • I’d like to take this opportunity to break from the planned column of the week just to speak about relationships, which is what assets are really all about.
    The particular relationship I’d like to speak about is my relationship with State Representative Jeanette Wallace.
    In 2000, I was hired as the Maternal and Child Health Council Coordinator. The job was to look at the issues of women of childbearing age and their children. I assumed, since I interviewed at 8-1/2 months pregnant for the job, I was a shoo in, but we’ll never know if that was the case.
    At one point the councils were in jeopardy of losing their funding and we rallied the troops (all state coordinators) to the Roundhouse, for an “Educate the Legislature Day.”

  • A choral concert, “If Music Be the Food of Love, Sing On,” will be at 7 p.m. April 30 at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church’s Kelly Hall, 3900 Trinity Dr.

    The concert, performed by Coro de Camara, will feature music from the Renaissance to today, including pieces from Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Durufle, Copland, Thompson and others.

    The group does not charge admission to its performances, but donations are accepted at the door.
    Coro de Camara is a chorus of the room (or chamber) as the Spanish name translates and is made up of a group of 16-24 vocalists, depending on the repertoire.
