  • Filling July 4 up with music

    It was very exciting for the LAHS Bands to once again be able to participate in this year’s Fourth of July festivities.  

    The products that we’re sold added to the celebration. All of the proceeds directly benefit the operation of the bands.

    We have many activities planned for the coming year including two major marching competitions, honor bands, guest artists who will perform with us, clinicians and a spring trip. Fundraisers such as this one allow us to do all of these things.

  • It wasn’t generally how I spend a Wednesday morning – inspecting the nooks and crannies of the exteriors of airplane hangars, which neatly line up one right after another along the runway at Los Alamos County Airport.

    If I hadn’t been so fixated on spotting a peculiar lump or bump on the smooth asphalt, I would have probably appreciated the cool morning breeze and the perfect cloudless sky.

    I would have enjoyed the fact that I was spending at least a few minutes of the morning in the fresh air rather than in the office.

  • At 7 p.m. Friday at Ashley Pond, the Los Alamos Summer Concert Series will present the Sisters Morales at Ashley Pond.

    Sisters Morales plays rock clubs, cantinas, dancehalls, performing arts centers, festivals, concert halls, blues bars and honky-tonks all over the country.

    The sister played the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Voices of Latin Rock Festival in San Francisco, Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic, Taste of Chicago, the George Strait Country Music Festival, the Kerrville Folk Festival and the Los Alamos Summer Concert Series.

  • Looking at a mirror can be a disagreeable experience. Sometimes the reflection isn’t what you were hoping to see.

  • Summer time is a great chance to build the Assets of Family Communication and Support with a little something called the family vacation. After I write that sentence, in the back of my mind I hear, dun, dun, dun.

    The family vacation, no matter how monotonous, can be memories that last a life time. If they do, as adults, we should try to make them as good as possible.

    Now for those of you who don’t know me very well, I’m as cheap as the day is long, so I certainly don’t mean a trip where we indulge in every purchase the dears would enjoy.

  • From a sponge toss to sack races, the Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints White Rock ward offered fun for all ages July 3 at the church.

     

  • Everyone has felt as though they were stuck in a rut. The routine feels too familiar and perhaps a little flat. Sometimes a change is in order – to shake things up and re-energize people.

    Grace Vineyard Christian Fellowship is following this attitude with two upcoming conferences.

    The first one, which begins today and runs through Sunday, features John Sullivan, Jr., the son of the church’s pastor, Rev. Jack Sullivan. Sullivan, Jr. will be accompanied by his wife, Sofia and Kolynn Hansen.

  • Running, shooting, swimming and horse riding – these are well-established sports but combined altogether, something unique arises.

    A tetrathlon may sound unusual but it is a sport that is widely held.

    Additionally, three girls from Los Alamos recently proved they excel at this sport.

    Madeline Beck, Rachel Brenner and Mariah Bayless of the Los Alamos Pony Club achieved first place as a team in the Rocky Mountain Regional Mega Rally Tetrathlon.

  • For 42 years, the Los Alamos Historical Society has operated the Los Alamos History Museum but as the society turns its attention to the house formerly owned by Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, it finds itself in unfamiliar territory.

    Fortunately, the historic society earned a $3,750 grant from the New Mexico Humanities Council as well as a $2,400 grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. These grants will offer guidance to the society as it begins initial steps to operate a historic home museum.

  • After the excitement, sturm und drang of Friday night’s season opening, Saturday’s second opening felt more relaxed, less crowded, more casual, less pressured  and the weather was calmer, too.  

    Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” (1791) is the ultimate kid friendly opera, and we did indeed see several beautiful little girls in beautiful little dresses; but I’m sorry to say this production will leave the kids bored instead of dazzled.
