  • This Friday night we’ll be at Rover Park in White Rock with the Austin, Texas country-rock-soul-blues band Uncle Lucius. To get to Rover Park, turn left at the first light in White Rock (Rover Blvd) and go about one mile, the park’s on the left.

    The Black Crowes, The Band, the Outlaws, the Allman Brothers, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, Otis Redding and Bill Withers have influenced Uncle Lucius’ music.

  • The Los Alamos Home Tour will include seven homes of a variety of styles and architecture, from an historic Bathtub Row home to brand new custom homes. Viewers will be able to get ideas for remodels and new constructions and learn about the history of home building and architecture in Los Alamos.

    The addresses and names of homeowners will be not announced prior to the tour.  Ticket buyers will receive a detailed program and map. Tickets are $20 in advance and are available at Brownell’s Hallmark, LANB, Family Strengths Network and online at lafsn.org.

  • On Sept. 10, 1994 more than 100 volunteers began moving 125,000 items from the old library to the new Mesa Public Library. Children loaded books into red wagons and hauled them several blocks up Central Avenue.

    By Sept. 14 and ahead of schedule, all the items were in their brand new home. Since then, the library has grown up, becoming one of the best-loved and most used institutions in Los Alamos. Celebrate this sweet 16th anniversary with an exhibit of the works of Mesa Public Library architect, Antoine Predock.

  • U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján’s re-election campaign recently completed the successful pilot program of the Summer Luján Leadership Congressional Campaign Fellowship (LLCCF). Ten high school and college students from four counties graduated from the LLCCF.

    “We held an intensive three-day training session in Santa Fe to kick off the program," said Justin Bailey, the project coordinator.  

  • Recycled fashion will be the focal point of House of Hope’s High Tea and Fashion Show at 2 p.m. Aug. 28 in Kelly Hall at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church.

    Attendees will be treated to a fashion show with clothing provided by TOTH’s “Shop on the Corner” Thrift Store; a silent auction; a TK Print or Kirchner Quilt raffle; sweet and savory treats and of course, tea. Tickets may be purchased for $20, or $10 for children younger than 12.

  • Staff, faculty and students have come together to insure the success of the electrical engineering program at UNM-LA. Pre-engineering program director Oksana Gerlits and Bachelor and Graduate Program Manager Cindy Leyba are working together to ensure a smooth transition to upper division classes for students pursuing a career in electrical engineering.

    “Despite the ending of our contract with Los Alamos National Laboratory and the loss of those funds, we have plans to not only continue, but add to the engineering program,” Leyba said.

  • The Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series will be at Del Norte Credit Union at 7 p.m. Friday with rocker Nick Curran and the Lowlifes. Los Alamos favorites, the Nomads, will open the show with their ’50s, ’60s and ’70s music.

    Good golly, Miss Molly, let me tell you about it.

  • On Thursday, school staff headed back to work to get ready for some 3,405 students that will follow in their footsteps this week.

    The staff was entertained by Nathan Eklund, a lead educational consultant for the Search Institute, home of the 40 Developmental Assets.

    The wisdom Eklund imparted was a nugget of knowledge that should be gleaned by everyone in the community. The visual was to punch the shark.

  • Jin Park, Taylor Engleman and Nadine Sanchez attended the New Mexico HOBY Site of the Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Seminar.  Park, Engleman and Sanchez joined 48 other young leaders representing as many high schools from throughout New Mexico. The three students represented Los Alamos High School.

    HOBY Leadership Seminars bring together a select group of high school sophomores from public and private high schools to interact with groups of distinguished leaders in business, government, education and the professions to discuss present and future issues.  

  • The Tools for Schools project got underway Aug. 6 and 7 when members from the Unitarian and Bethlehem Lutheran churches unloaded a truckload of school supplies.

    Each year the Tools for Schools project donates thousands of dollars in school supplies to at-risk students in poverty, to ensure that all students start the year with the tools they need to accomplish their academic work.

    The project’s vision is to help students identify positively with school by minimizing the embarrassment of not having

    adequate supplies.
