Today's Features

  • 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.

  • I’ve seen them wherever I lived. They roam around in minivans, arm themselves with enormous purses and yield cameras to document every minute. Of course, there are always a gaggle of young children following this individual – the soccer mom.

    Growing up, I thought these women were targets for mockery.

    I couldn’t imagine taking motherhood to the extreme and becoming a suburban cliché. But after watching two of my sister’s children last week, I realized these women have a lot of admirable qualities.

  • In this week’s edition of Gilead’s Gossip, I sit down with someone we all are very familiar with — the owner of our Spitfire Grill, Hannah Ferguson.

    As we all know, Hannah isn’t the most cheerful resident of our Wisconsin town, but lately she seems to be walking with what seems to be the tiniest spring in her step.

    Hopefully my curiosity will once again discover the reason for this most unexpected development.

  • Giving a little bit of encouragement can really make a difference. Take Los Alamos Middle eight-grader Ethan Clements, for instance. His GATE teacher last year, TJ Bonzon, and his GATE teacher this year, Caroline Haagenstad, both encouraged Clements to pursue his interest in writing and art as well as to submit his work for publication.

  • New Mexico might not have a single drop of seawater within its borders but the state has forged a bond with the ocean. There is something diving underneath the waves that bears New Mexico’s name.
