  • Combine six cups of clay, six cups of compost and a cup of wild land seeds and the result is the community at its finest.
    It is nice when a plan comes together, and last weekend a lot of planning paid off for the community and one youth in particular.
    Los Alamos High School senior Jin Park rallied the community, along with funds and supplies to pull off a day of playing in the mud that will rival any other, for what the community hopes is a once-in-a-lifetime event.
    On Aug. 20, almost 600 citizens came together to assist Park and Los Alamos County employee Craig Martin, in a seed ball project that will aid re-forestation efforts for the surrounding community affected by the Las Conchas Fire.

  • “How might the Bible shape my response to people with AIDS?”—John

    Basically, two perspectives appear in Scripture. In the ancient Hebrew texts, you will find that God apparently used plague more than once as a means of judgment on those who were in rebellion against Him (Num. 16:41-50; Deut. 28:58ff.) From this observation, you may conclude that AIDS sufferers are being punished by God and thus should be ostracized, even condemned. The close association of AIDS and the homosexual community has made this a quick and ready conclusion for many people over the last 30 years.

  • LOS ANGELES — Al Pacino says he got burned while making “Scarface.”
    Literally, he grabbed the hot barrel of a gun that had just shot 30 rounds during one of Tony Montana’s violent scenes.
    “My hand stuck to that sucker,” the 71-year-old actor recalled. He couldn’t work for two weeks.
    Pacino relayed the experience during a discussion with “Scarface” co-stars Steven Bauer, Robert Loggia and F. Murray Abraham and producer Martin Bregman at a party Tuesday heralding the film’s Blu-ray release.
    Part of the charm of the film, Pacino said, is that it wasn’t initially a hit.

  • LONDON — Amy Winehouse had no illegal drugs in her system when she died, and it is still unclear what killed the singer, her family said Tuesday.
    The family said in a statement that toxicology tests showed “alcohol was present” in the singer’s body but it hasn’t yet been determined if it contributed to her death.
    The 27-year-old soul diva, who had battled drug and alcohol addiction for years, was found dead in her London home on July 23, and an initial post-mortem failed to determine the cause of death.
