  • Our daughter, Lorinda, is an eighth grader at the Los Alamos Middle School. Our daughter had saved up for an expensive iPod. We told her not to take it to school, but she wanted to take it just one day to show it to her friends.  
    She had it for less then one week when she took it to school. When she arrived at school she did not have it. She thought she might have dropped it in the car (her father had given her a ride to school that day). When she got home she searched the car and the house and to no avail.

  • Anticipation weighed heavily on three girls from Los Alamos on Aug 28. Annija Westfall, Marija Westfall and Sarah Hutchens clutched their Build A Bear stuffed animals as they listened to the announcer call their names as contestants for the national qualifying round in the New Mexico Bible Bee, held in Los Alamos.
    The girls competed in the 7-18 year old category and spent their summer memorizing and comprehending 250-800 Bible verses, Greek words and the entire Book of the Colossians.

  • Editor’s note: This story ran in Thursdsay’s Kaleidoscope, but contained  an error in the headline. The Monitor regrets any confusion the report may have caused.

    The 2010-2011 season of the Los Alamos Concert Association opens Nov. 17 with a concert featuring two American artists, cellist Julie Albers and pianist Orion Weiss. The concert will begin at 4 p.m. in Duane Smith Auditorium.

  • Positive Family Communication is the goal this week. Locally, only 34 percent of students feel like they have this asset in their lives.
    I always like to be mindful that a portion of this data point is how that communication is interpreted by our youth.
    Nevertheless, one might consider their daily interactions and how they might come across. I also like to bring up an old saying from when I was a kid, “Monkey see, monkey do.”
