  • Help made Arts Fair
    a success

    The hard work of many dedicated volunteers resulted in a successful Northern New Mexico Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair.
    In addition to the Los Alamos Arts Council, the fair benefited from the efforts of RSVP members who posted flyers around Los Alamos before the fair and the Fabulous 50s Diner that provided the food and beverages for the event.
    As always, a big thank you goes to our board members and volunteers who spent many hours in preparation, as well as time staffing the fair. LAAC is fortunate to have a wonderful group of volunteers who assist us with this and other events. Among them are Lisa Lloyd, Lori Dauelsberg, Terry Goodwin, Maxine Joppa, Taedg Woods, Bill Hamilton, Sarah Downs and Andrew Weinman.

  • Having a sick child can take a toll on any family, but having a child that needs to be hospitalized is even more difficult. Especially if the hospital is in another town. The Ronald McDonald House in Albuquerque helps soften the blow for families by providing them with lodging while their children are hospitalized or going to doctors appointments.
    A group of Los Alamos and White Rock children are doing their part to help the families and the Ronald McDonald House by collecting aluminum can tabs. The youngsters from the Los Alamos Family Council’s Youth Activity Centers collect the tabs from soda cans at each center.

  • CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The world's biggest extraterrestrial explorer, NASA's Curiosity rover, rocketed toward Mars on Saturday on a search for evidence that the red planet might once have been home to itsy-bitsy life.

    It will take 8½ months for Curiosity to reach Mars following a journey of 354 million miles.

    An unmanned Atlas V rocket hoisted the rover, officially known as Mars Science Laboratory, into a cloudy late morning sky. A Mars frenzy gripped the launch site, with more than 13,000 guests jamming the space center for NASA's first launch to Earth's next-door neighbor in four years, and the first send-off of a Martian rover in eight years.

    Bryce Ave. Presbyterian

  • Los Alamos is a remarkable place for a pastorate, in the opinion of Rev. Dr. Harry A. Cole, the incoming interim pastor of White Rock United Presbyterian Church.
    Cole comes to the pulpit most recently from Westminster Church in Roswell and previously from the First Presbyterian Church and the First Christian Church in El Paso, Texas.
    While in El Paso, he was also the executive director of INSIGHTS, the city science museum, an experience that piqued his interest in a pastorate in Los Alamos.
