  • Beginning in April, the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos will offer a series of eight Saturday morning Taiji (T’ai Chi) classes to study the Yang Style 24 Forms.
    Classes will run from 11 a.m.-noon and begin April 7 in Robinson Hall.
    No previous experience is necessary. Classes will explore proper body alignment with coordination and flexibility exercises, and breathing techniques to cultivate the flow of Qi, or life energy.
    The primary focus of the class is to study the 24 forms of the Taiji routine, which can become a daily discipline of spiritual practice.

The Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and the Family YMCA oversee the Los Alamos Youth Food Project, which is sponsored by a grant from the State Farm Youth Advisory Board.

  • Assets 30 and 31 top the list week as we look at responsibility and restraint.
    These may be two very perfect assets to look at just prior to spring break.
    First of all, you must show restraint in not eating all of the Girl Scout cookies that you purchase.
    It is however, the responsible thing to do, to buy the rest of these Girls Scout cookies while shopping at Smith’s, and get these young ladies back to their normal activities.
    Several times during the last week, I’ve had conversations with other parents about the need to let kids experience things in life, that later make them responsible adults.
    Sometimes you have to give kids the keys to the castle and see what they will do with them.
