  • Friends of the Shelter invites Los Alamos residents to the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter to have their colors done.  
    The new Pet Adoption Matching Program uses colors to help potential adopters find the cat or dog that best matches their home environment, lifestyle, family situation and companionship needs.  
    In doing this, shelter personnel hope to increase the rate of adoptions from the shelter and to reduce the number of failed adoptions.
    Potential adopters will have the opportunity to complete a short questionnaire before they visit the cat room or dog kennels.

  • Last week, the children of Ponderosa Montessori School Inc. hosted a luncheon for some of the firefighters at Fire Station 3 in White Rock.
    All 10 firefighters on duty went to the school where the children had prepared a lunch for them. The children were excited and happy for the opportunity to give back after all the hard work all firefighters (from near and far) had done for the community.

  • Antonio Vivaldi’s “Griselda” is the simple tale of a woman and the struggles forced upon her by her husband as a cruel proof of honor.
    Griselda (Meredith Arwady) is the wife of the King of Thessaly, Gualtiero (Paul Groves), whose subjects are not very fond of the queen. As a result, Gualtiero forces Griselda to endure various tortures in order to prove to his people that she is worthy of her station. But there’s a twist: Griselda is completely unaware that Gualtiero’s actions are intended only to prove a point.

  • “The Bible says Jesus cried when His friend Lazarus died. Why did He weep — didn’t He know He was going to raise Lazarus from the dead?” — Kathy

    This story is found only in John’s Gospel (chapter 11), one of several powerful moments in the life of Jesus that are not recorded in the earlier gospels. John, most likely writing many years after Jesus’ death and resurrection, appears to have the aim of clearly portraying both Jesus’ humanity and divinity — an issue that was increasingly debated at the end of the first century and beyond.
