    Step through the looking glass and enter a wonderland with “Alice”

    New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company (NMDT-PC), directed by Susan Baker-Dillingham, will present its newest creation, “Alice,” over the next two weekends at the Duane W. Smith Auditorium. The ballet will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday. A performance will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday and again at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Nov. 21.

  • In 1947, the Ranch School built an oval ice rink in Los Alamos Canyon. The boys created this smooth patch of ice by flooding and damming a tiny canyon creek. Little did they know that today more than 20,000 people visit their rink.

    The mad rush to the ice rink for this season will begin at 11:30 a.m. Friday.  

    The activities, which are co-sponsored by the Los Alamos Recreation Division and the Los Alamos Hockey Association, include a practice session for the local hockey team, the ATOMS from 5:15-6:15 p.m. Friday.

  • The First United Church of Los Alamos is taking stock of its year.

    While church members will evaluate their past deeds, they will also look ahead to the coming year and its potential.

    This annual review, known as the Charge Conference, will be held at noon Sunday in the Fellowship Hall.

    Everyone in the community  is welcomed to attend the conference.

  • When I was a kid, “Clue” was my favorite board game and “Murder, She Wrote,” was one of my favorite TV shows. I loved these two forms of entertainment because they offered intrigue, a sense of danger and the key players had to use their minds to solve the mystery.

    Therefore, I was delighted that Los Alamos Little Theater’s production of “Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure,” combines all these elements to produce one excellent play.

  • Sometimes, I try to write something. In fact, I do write something. I write line after line until I’ve got paragraphs. I spend several minutes, or even hours, before I realize my mistake, my monstrous mistake. It’s one I make repeatedly on blank screens and pieces of paper: I write a bunch of crap.

    This wouldn’t be such a problem if only people enjoyed reading crap. But they have much better things to do.

  • In recognition of National Young Readers Week, which began Monday, the staff of Los Alamos Public Schools is eager to host Family Literacy Night on Thursday at Chamisa Elementary School

    The schedule for the event will begin with the Scholastic Book Fair from 3:30-7 p.m.; a dinner hosted by the sixth-grade class will be held from 4-5 p.m.; the keynote speaker will take the stage at 4 p.m. and there will be storytelling for children from 5-5:45 p.m. Workshops will also be held from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

  • A pop tab is more than what it seems. It may look like a small, insignificant piece of metal but it can help make a difference in someone’s life.

    For instance, the VFW recently  donated the recycling proceeds to the American Veterans Cancer Fund.

    The fund received a hefty donation from Los Alamos High School freshman  Valerie Warthen, who donated 16 bags of pop tabs to VFW Post 8874.
