  • “I have heard that Christians are supposed to fast. Is that still a valid practice for today? — Bret

    The origins of fasting as a religious discipline are obscure. There is furthermore no clue in Scripture regarding where this practice arose. Wherever it does appear, it connotes abstinence of food for several reasons, including mourning (Ps. 69:10) repentance (Joel 2:12), and making urgent requests to God (II Sam. 12:16). It can be spontaneous or connected with important religious days; it can be personal or public (Esth. 4:3; Ezra 10:6; Neh. 1:4).

  • The Russ Gordon Concert Series opens at Overlook Park tonight with a pair of bands. Performing will be Tiho Dimitrov Band and DK & the Affordables. The concert, which is free, starts at 7 p.m.

  • The Los Alamos Choral Society presents their Spring Concert at 3 p.m. May 20 at the United Church of Los Alamos, featuring songs of love and romance in a program titled, “Love In Bloom.”
    From the 1959 musical “Gypsy,” with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and music by Jule Styne, comes the hit song “Everything’s Coming Up Roses.”
    Morten Lauridsen (b. 1943) — a composer from the late 20th and 21st century — has developed his trademark style of composition of which “Dirait on,” from the song cycle “Chanson Des Roses” is an example.

  • State Rep. Jim Hall stopped for a lengthy visit at Los Alamos Middle School last Tuesday. Here, seventh grade student Dylan Sanchez speaks with Hall during one of three lunch periods. Hall asked students about their education, shared details about his school life and work at the Legislature and took part in an update on the Los Alamos Youth Food Project. Hall also took time to visit staff during their luncheon hosted by Prinicpal Rex Kilburn, Assistant Principal Anna Vargas-Gutierrez and Summit Foods.

  • The hard work of many dedicated volunteers resulted in a successful Northern New Mexico Spring Arts and Crafts Fair. It was a fantastic day with perfect weather, giving people the opportunity to visit with friends and mingle among the booths.
    In addition to the Los Alamos Arts Council, the fair benefited from the efforts of RSVP members who posted flyers around Los Alamos before the fair, the Coffee House Café, Joe Baldanado  and Darcie Marino for providing the beverages and food for the event.
    We also wish to thank L.A. County Parks Department for mowing and trimming the grounds around Fuller Lodge, as well as cleaning up trash during the fair.
