Today's Features

  • Baha’is of Los Alamos is joining Baha’is throughout the world in celebrating two of the nine annual Holy Days.  

    Saturday, Baha’is will gather to celebrate the Declaration of the Bab, the prophet-martyr of the Baha’i faith and the herald of the coming of Baha’u’llah.

    The Bab, which means Gate, declared his mission on May 22, 1844, in the city of Shiraz, Persia or modern day Iran.

  • In 2001, when Kay Kerbyson followed her husband to Los Alamos, she had no idea what life would have in store for her.  

  • Judith Phillips  is working to usher people outdoors. Not only is this award-winning landscape designer and owner of Judith Phillips Design Oasis coaxing people to experience the great outdoors, but she is showing them how to sculpt their outside spaces the correct way.

  • Cub Scout Pack 229 held its annual end-of-the-year bike rodeo and family picnic on May 15 at Urban Park.  

    Los Alamos Police Department Officer Jeff Reginold kicked off the event by speaking to the scouts about bicycle safety. The boys and their siblings then rotated through several stations, which addressed the condition of the bicycles, balance and control.

    All pack members received their neckerchief and scout book for next year.

  • I think lately I arrive at the end of every week thinking TGIF, but this week is different. Wow, we’ve arrived at the last week of school. Try to take it all in this week, the pomp, the circumstance, the little  moments.

    For some, this is a game changer. Maybe you move from middle to high school, maybe you move from elementary to middle school or maybe the big chick leaves the nest. Maybe the baby bird will head to that big, ominous place called school next year.

  • Helping Earth

    Earth Day in Los Alamos, organized for the 11th consecutive year by Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC), was an outstanding success due to the efforts of a large number of volunteers and the support of many sponsors.

    This letter is to thank all of these volunteers and sponsors and those who attended one of our events this year.

  • Musician Tinsley Ellis is a quiet-spoken man. His low-key demeanor during an interview with Monitor seems highly contrasted to reviews of his performances.

    Relix described his music as “blistering, inspired roadhouse blues and passionate Southern rock … gritty, soulful vocals.”

    Billboard goes on to say, “Altlanta’s Tinsley Ellis sings like a man possessed and wields a ferocious lead guitar … one of today’s premier blues/rock players.”

  • Among the thousands of runners who will participate in this year’s Jemez Mountain Trail Runs, an utlrarunning legend will also hit the trail.

    Ultrarunning legend Micah True (aka Caballo Blanco) will not only participate in the trail runs but he will share his story about living and running with the Tarahumara Indians of Central Mexico.

  • Art is not limited to impressionism or baroque styles. There’s a whole other style of art that thrives in urban areas. It decorates city buildings, adorns people’s arms and ankles and pops up on TV. Perhaps street art is easy to dismiss because it strays from the mainstream but it does have real credibility. Just look at artist Jesse Hernandez’s work. According to Hernandez’s Web site, the artist is influenced by a combination of styles.  His work draws from traditional indigenous styles and themes with an urban sensibility.

  • Some stories are just plain better than others. Perhaps what gives certain tales the edge is a quality or characteristic that makes them different from the pack.

    These narratives have never been previously uttered; they do not feature some rehashed, recycled story format. So your attention sits up a little higher as the yarn unfolds.

    I heard such stories during the UNM-LA graduation Friday night.
