  • The Los Alamos Monitor has the inside scoop on what locals are reading. Otowi Station issued a current list of  popular books for Los Alamos readers.

  • Less than a month after announcing a plan to separate its DVD-by-mail and Internet streaming services, Netflix reversed course Monday and said it would keep the two services on a single website. Customers had complained loudly that the plan would have made it more difficult to watch movies. Investors hated it, too.
    In the end, the company backed down. But Netflix’s turbulent relationship with subscribers over the last three months raises questions about how it’s being managed during the transition from delivering movies on disc to sending them over the Internet.

  • “This concerto is one of the greatest pieces in clarinet repertoire — one of the prime jewels in literature.  I am delighted to be playing it.”  Dr. Robert Marcus used these words to describe “Mozart’s Concerto For Clarinet, K 622 (1791),” which he will perform with the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra at 7 p.m. Oct. 21 at the Crossroads Bible Church.
    Marcus is a retired physician from the department of Medicine at Stanford University, now living in Santa Fe. He has had an active musical life, performing in symphony and chamber groups, while also maintaining a busy medical career. In 1995 he performed the “Mozart Clarinet Concerto” with the Redwood Symphony in California.

  • For the seventh year, Los Alamos will get a sampling of Indian culture, as Dances of India entertains residents with its free performance at the Duane Smith Auditorium.
    This year, the group headed by dance instructors Kavita Nandakishore and Alina Deshpande, will showcase their skills as they offer up their own version of the classic tale, “Snow White.” The event will be from 4-6 p.m. Saturday.

  • Autumn is swiftly settling upon our enchanted land. The amount of daylight diminishes with each passing day as the Aspen leaves reveal the first signs of their golden transformation.  
    The first leg of the journey traveled the passes of N.M. 4 through Jemez Springs, proceeding west on N.M. 485 to Gilman Tunnels. The next leg of the journey, from Gilman Tunnels to Porter Landing, offers many opportunities to enjoy unique scenery and history, while soaking in the changing fall colors.

    Beyond Gilman Tunnels

     Shortly past the tunnels, the road switches from paved to gravel where it becomes Forest Road 376. The continuing road loosely follows an old railroad spur leading to Porter Landing.
