Today's Features

  • The 2011 season at the Santa Fe Opera has certainly provided a variety of entertainment. Beginning with a classic like “La Boheme” and moving to the comedy of “The Last Savage,” we end the season in tragic scandal with “Wozzek.”
    Directed by Daniel Slater and conducted by David Robertson, “Wozzek” (Richard Paul Fink) is the story of a poor army private that earns extra pennies by shaving his captain (Robert Brubaker) and subjecting himself to a doctor’s (Eric Owens) medical experimentation.


  • If Texas is like a whole other country, then Roswell, N.M. is like a whole other universe. From fast-food restaurant signs welcoming aliens to the UFO Alien Museum downtown, Roswell embraces and even revels in its history.

  • Welcome to assets month. Once again, the Los Alamos County Council will proclaim the month of August as Assets Month in our county.
    The proclamation was read at their Tuesday night meeting and the work will continue for what should be another wonderful year.
    The Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce-sponsored program will once again work with the community, schools and others to promote the work of the assets initiative far and wide.

  • 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.
    Thanks to the shelter staff for outstanding service to the community during the Las Conchas Fire evacuation.
    It’s summer, remember that pets also suffer when the temperature rises. Cooling animals (dogs, rabbits, cats) by giving them a “cool” bath or shower to help keep their body temperature down.
    A cool towel on a tile floor to lay on, a cool towel or washcloth laying over the skin, next to a fan will also help cool the animal.
    Make sure they have plenty of cool water to drink as well.
