  • Life doesn’t get much better than when adults help a student put a plan into action. The Los Alamos Kiwanis club has done just that.
    Los Alamos High School student Anna Carroll stepped up to the plate without her shoes last week, as she launched a community-wide shoe
    drive to help change the world.
    Carroll, along with fellow LAHS Key Club students, has partnered with Think Kindness and Soles4Souls, to conduct shoe drives throughout the school district and in the community.

  • The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on-site adoptable pets; others are in foster care with loving, temporary homes.
    All of our fully reconditioned adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro-chipped.
    Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  
    Every cat only $35 with an extended two-for-one sale.

  • The months of December and January find us in the positive identity category of the assets framework.
    The category includes personal power, self esteem, sense of purpose and positive view of personal future.
    When I review the category, an old saying comes to mind, “pot calling kettle, pot calling kettle.”

  • On Chanukah, the main mitzvah, or commandment is to light the Hanukkah menorah at sundown. This is to remember the miracle that the oil that was lit on the menorah was only enough to last a single day but ended up lasting for eight complete days.
    One of the traditions regarding lighting candles is to light oil like what was done in the Temple. However, we are not allowed to use a menorah that has seven branches like the one in the Temple –— which the Maccabees lit after expelling the Greeks from Israel.
