  • 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.

  • Peter Case was part of two rock and roll bands, helped push off the punk rock movement and has been nominated for Grammys. When he went in for an emergency open heart surgery last year, it left him feeling appreciative to be alive and singing.

    He said, "I'm glad to be alive. I've been given another shot; I appreciate it. I have another opportunity to live. It makes it that much sweeter."

    Case will perform at 7 p.m. Friday at the Pajarito Mountain Ski Hill. To read more about the concert, see tomorrow's newspaper.

  • The Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series presents Peter Case up at 7 p.m. Friday at the Pajarito Mountain Ski Area.

    He said he knew what he wanted to do at age 14 and that he was serious about his music. In 1965, he dropped out of school after finishing ninth grade and sang on the streets of Buffalo, N.Y. and the surrounding areas.

  • For years I never volunteered for anything – my services to the community were nonexistent. It was a dry spell that was only interrupted when I decided to volunteer for a nonprofit in Salida, Colo., that aided low income families and the homeless. It looked like a storm might break out and     rain on my desert of community service but no such luck. After spending only a few hours sorting through hand-me-down clothes, I left and never returned.

  • “The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder,” Alfred Hitchcock once said.

  • Generous Hilltoppers of the Class of 1980 are seen here donating a check to the LAPS Foundation.  The amount raised to benefit the Foundation was $2,143.  Pictured from left to right are LAPS Foundation Board Member Kelly Stewart, Class of 1980 Reunion Volunteer Suzie Havemann and Class of 1980 Reunion Chairperson Eddie Dunn.

  • Los Alamos will be lit up full force on July 4 – not only through fireworks but with children’s parades, a 5K run and one big party at Overlook Park in White Rock.

    The patriotism in town will immediately start at with jog at the Los Alamos Family YMCA’s Independence Day Firecracker 5K Family Fun Run.
