Today's Features

  • The Bradbury Science Museum recently continued its Tuesday summer learning with the topic of bones. The Bradbury is utilizing youth as summer volunteers.

  • 1. You get a new wardrobe

    Unfortunately, most maternity clothes fit awkwardly at best and look more like bedsheets than dresses or shirts. Early in your pregnancy, every outfit you put on sags, practically frowns, over your suddenly formless body.

  • Friday evening marked the beginning of another season at the Santa Fe Opera, with more than 2,000 people mingling in the rose-gold light of another spectacular sunset. Puccini’s “Madame Butterfly,” (1904), which opened the SFO’s first season and theater in 1957, and the subsequent new theaters in 1968 and 1998, now ties with “La Boheme” for most presented Puccini opera at Santa Fe, at least until next year, when “Boheme” inches ahead again.

  • I remember first seeing Lisa Gilkyson in 1976 at the old Line Camp in Pojoaque. That was New Mexico’s best rock club and Gilkyson, who lived in Santa Fe, was the lead singer in one of New Mexico’s top rock bands.

    I loved listening to Lisa but it was strange for me to start calling her Eliza as the times and her music changed.

    Go to www.elizagilkyson.com and www.myspace.com/elizagilkyson to listen to and read about her music.

  • When you plant a flower or tree in the ground, it feels like you are doing something great – not only for your yard’s appearance but also for the environment’s wellbeing.

    This isn’t always the case, however. That tree or flower could require buckets of water, thus washing away any good intentions the planter had.

  • Piñon Elmentary School PTO President Gloria Brehm introduced Terracycle to the school last year and the results have been significant.

    Three thousand juice pouches have been given to TerraCycle, a company that turns non-recyclable waste into eco-friendly products.

    Additionally, 1,000 chip bags have been shipped to the company. The PTO does receive a small fee for its waste. For instance, the PTO receives 2 cents per juice pouch and has earned a total of $60.

  • To be safe and help others in need, look to the Family YMCA, which is offering several first aid courses.

    The Family YMCA is offering its Red Cross Babysitting certification course July 23 and 24.

    This course is designed by the American Red Cross to prepare youth with the training every parent wants in a babysitter: safety, basic child care, safe play, first aid and critical emergency skills, and professional leadership and care-giving skills.

  • Building a support system is an important part of building a healthy family.

    For newcomers that means making new friends, which can be hard to do in a new town.

    Carrie and Matt Stone moved to Los Alamos from Juneau, Ak, in November.

    Carrie has a 6-year-old son and an 8-month-old daughter.

    She began coming to the Thursday support group at Family Strengths Network for mothers of infants as soon as she heard about it.

    “Our Realtor told us about Family Strengths, and I’ve met several other newcomers here,” she said.

  • Los Alamos Little Theatre (LALT) fans may know her as a director-costumer-stage manager, while Los Alamos Light Opera-goers may know her as a performer.  However, Los Alamos native Mimi Adams unveils a new side to her theatrical talent: playwright.  “Endless Questions,” Adams’ first full-length one-act play, debuts this weekend on the LALT stage as the culmination of a workshop experience long in the making.  

  • One of Rev. Allen Weiser’s greatest joys is to get amongst people and pray with them. Beginning Sunday, he will indulge in his drive to spread the spirit of God by evangelizing to area United Pentecostal Churches.

    On Sunday, Weiser, who is the co-founder of Hope Fellowship in Los Alamos, will preach at 10 a.m. at the Apostolic Lighthouse, a United Pentecostal Church in Española.

    On July 23, Weiser will travel to the Pentecostal Texico district’s family camp and Holy Ghost Crusade in Amarillo, Texas, to be one of the featured speakers.
