  • 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.

  • This is the week is when I fill the well. As you read this column, we are winging our way back from the 2010 Assets conference.
    It is a week when I am, “among my people.” Much like an engineer attending an engineering conference, I have the opportunity to be surrounded by 1,500-2,000 youth and adults that are doing this work across the United States and internationally as well.

  • December will be a colorful month at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
    All five Los Alamos elementary schools will display two-dimensional, student artwork at the senior center. The artwork will be on display from Dec. 1-Jan. 5.
    Students, parents, art teachers and seniors will join together from 1-3 p.m. Dec. 8 for an art show opening. Juice and cookies will be served on the lower level of the senior center. Artists will be available to talk about their work. The public is invited to attend the opening or may stop by and see the show during the month of December.

  • Various arts and craft fairs and shopping opportunities are held during the holiday season where adults can find gifts, but what about children? Shopping opportunities that are kid-friendly can be somewhat of a challenge. Luckily, Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church has a solution.
    The Children’s Christmas Bazaar, which will be from 9 a.m.-noon Dec. 4 in TOTH’s Kelly Hall, 3900 Trinity Dr., is specifically provided for children in Kindergarten-6th grade.

  • The Los Alamos Pony Club will have a silent auction fundraising event on Dec. 5 in conjunction with the 12th annual Luminaria Walk at the Los Alamos Stables.
    The group is in the process of collecting auction items for the event and would like to request assistance in making the auction a success by donating an item, gift certificate or money for purchasing auction items.

  • The 2010 class of Leadership Los Alamos held its Education Session on Nov. 12. The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos hosted the session. The Leadership Los Alamos program is nine months in duration and program sessions are designed to address current issues facing the community.
    The education session focused on how education is in a constant state of evolution. Speakers addressed local, statewide and national issues, as well as how community involvement can drive educational opportunity.

  • Los Alamos High School Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps students and instructors have a lot to celebrate. They brought home a total of 10 first place awards from the Four Corners Drill Meet in Farmington, which took place Oct. 22.

  • “Can you explain what James is talking about when he says the ‘one who is rich should take pride in his low position? ’ ”— Roy

    James is the “wisdom literature” of the New Testament, a collection of axioms, encouragement, instruction and warnings. Often the language is euphemistic: pithy and succinct, designed for maximum punch with minimal words. The passage to which you refer takes this form, using unexpected irony to make the point.
