Today's Features

  • “The Spitfire Grill” is a story for our time. In the musical, a financially depressed town plays host to a young woman just released from prison. Parolee Percy Talbott, played by Jess Cullinan, chose the town from an old tourist pamphlet, printed years before the quarry closed and the highway was diverted around the town.

  • For all the bird-watchers who wonder how to keep sensible, organized, retrievable lists ­– the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) has the answer. Stephen Fettig will teach a short class on eBird, the free Web site that allows participants to keep track of their bird observations for any place in the western hemisphere.  

    The class will be held from 7-8 p.m. today at the UNM-LA computer lab.

  • What do you get when you mix children with games, art and fun food – one wild event.

    Los Alamos Youth Leadership has worked for several months to produce the third annual LAYL Wild Day in Los Alamos. which will be from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday.

    The event is open to kindergarten through sixth grade students. The $15 fee covers costs for the program and provides each student with a T-shirt, wristband, free lunch and snacks.

  • Sunday, Bryce Ave. Presbyterian Church in White Rock will host a series of special lectures on the writings and life of Jonathan Edwards by the Rev. Dr. Carl Bogue, one of the foremost Jonathan Edwards scholars in the United States today.  

    Jonathan Edwards was a preacher, theologian and missionary to Native Americans in the early 18th century and is widely regarded as America's most important theologian and one of America's greatest intellectuals.

    He played a critical role in shaping the First Great Awakening in the United States.  

  • Shop on the Corner is more than just a resale store located inside Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church. If you look beyond the various clothing items and the scatterings of household items, there is a whole other service besides just selling different goods for a steal.

    Shop on the Corner is in the business of improving people’s lives.

    This humanitarian work is on both a local and international scale. For instance, the shop offered assistance to a family who had suffered a loss due to a fire.

  • Whether it was developing a Web site or filming a documentary, looking into Los Alamos’ past or studying Montessori education, Los Alamos students explored the theme “Innovation in History: Impact in Change.” As a result, students created their own innovations and made impacts on local history.

    Los Alamos High School students Shannon Burns, Lizzie Wasilewska, Ellen Rabin, Caley DeNevers and Emily McClenahan earned top places in the senior division at the History Day State Competition, which was held April 23 at the Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque.

  • Similar to musicians who release albums with covers of popular songs, pianist Ron Grinage is hosting an entire concert featuring his favorite classical pieces.

    He will perform during the Los Alamos Arts Council’s Brown Bag show, at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at Fuller Lodge.

    The program throws the spotlight on Russian composers. Grinage said four movements from “The Seasons,” by Tchaikovsky, “Prelude and Fugue in D Minor, Op. 87, No. 24,” by Shostakovich and three preludes from Op. 32 by Rachmaninov are his favorite pieces by these composers.

  • This week I’d like to take a look at the people in our school buildings. So while you may often hear this upcoming week being referred to as Teacher Appreciation week, it is also called Staff Appreciation week.

    So I hope you can find the time in some small way to appreciate them all. When I say all of them, I mean the secretaries, instructional assistants, custodians, librarians, art teachers, music teachers, physical education instructors and the lunchroom staff.

  • Linda Garlick, an artist from Taos, fell into her trade by accident. “I needed money as a single mom supporting a child,” she said. “I decided to do Christmas ornaments of retablos and they sold really well.”

    Her art expanded as she turned to printing, which allowed Garlick to produce more retablos at a reduced price.

    “Then they took over my life and became a real business,” she said. “I feel like this is what I was suppose to do … they changed my life.”

  • An emergency situation can leap out at any time, anywhere with out any warning. For instance, Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJRTOC) cadet Paige Ramsey and her family experienced an unforeseen crisis at the dinner table.

    Ramsey explained her family was eating dinner and her mother, Marilyn, started choking on the food she was eating.

    When an unforeseen crisis arises many individuals may panic but Ramsey resorted to another tactic.

    She performed the Heimlich Maneuver and saved her mother’s life.
