  • Ever thought words like smothered breakfast burrito, Jeanie Southwest biscuits and gravy or huevos rancheros could be spotlighted in a story, or that a menu could inspire a literary endeavor? The Los Alamos Writers Group is proposing this challenge to the young people in the community.

    The writers group, along with Daylight Delights, is calling all young writers to take part in a writing contest.

  • When Grace Vineyard was founded in 1991, the church met in various locations throughout the community.

    Finally, the church staff settled on Chamisa Elementary School in 1994. They figured it would only be a few years before a permanent location was found.

    However, it took a little longer than expected. Rev. Jack Sullivan said different locations were determined to be either too small or too expensive. Fifteen years later, the church along with the office that was located next to the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division, relocated to 1183 Diamond Drive, Suite C.

  • Start fresh seems to be the motto of the organization formerly known as the Art Center at Fuller Lodge  – it will now be known as  the Fuller Lodge Art Center.

    Walking into the building, the evidence of wiping  the slate clean is everywhere. The honey-colored wood floors sparkle after being refinished by county employees, there’s a faint smell of fresh paint that was applied to the walls and the entire building is bare and ready for a new beginning.

  • Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Marion Pack is shutting the lid on her instrument case, temporarily, anyway.

    For 18 months, starting this summer, Pack and her husband will undergo a new experience as they participate in Senior Missionaries through their church, Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At this time, they do not know where they will be sent or what kind of work they will do for the year-and-a-half mission – some missionaries work in the states and others are sent to third world countries.

  • We’ve heard a lot this week about Tiger Woods and his return to the golf course.

    I’m sure you’re wondering once again how this relates to Assets.

    The truth is the Assets program was given a small portion of money to run the Tiger Woods Foundation program in Los Alamos this year. It started out with several groups in town interested in reading Woods’ book, “Start Something.” We started out great and the kids found it interesting and  an easy read.

    Then we arrived at the month of November.

  • When an individual becomes so well known that only his or her last name is needed for wide public recognition, we often refer to those individuals as being part of the “Great Man Theory.”

    This is especially true when it comes to music and music history.

  • “Jesus said, ‘The meek shall inherit the Earth.’  What does that mean?”— Devin

  • Due to her academic accomplishments and long list of community endeavors, Los Alamos High School senior Sara Tuzel was selected to be Rotary Club of Los Alamos’ Student of the Month for March.  

    Tuzel, the daughter of Jolanta and Walter Tuzel, has lived in Los Alamos for 13 years.

    At school, she maintains a 4.0 GPA and enjoys classes such as AP literature and AP psychology, as well as photography.

    Currently, she is taking classes at both the high school and at the University of New Mexico – Los Alamos.

  • Calling all bards, poets and writers – National Poetry Month has arrived.

    April is the month to sharpen the pencil, pull out the paper and ramp up the literary creativity.

    In 1996, the Academy of American Poets established National Poetry Month as a month-long, national celebration of poetry.

    The concept was to increase the attention paid-by individuals and the media to the art of poetry, to living poets, to Americans’ poetic heritage, and to poetry books and magazines.

  • The April 16 Spring Concert of the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Michael Gyurik, will feature two Los Alamos High School students who auditioned successfully for this honor back in January.  Both Alex Austell and Alisa Romero are juniors and both are studying privately in addition to playing in school ensembles.
