  • 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.  
    We get lots of roaming cats and dogs. Don’t assume your cat was a meal for a coyote. Check with the shelter and see if your best friend is bunking with us. Proof of rabies vaccination is required when claiming your pet.
    Happy Mother’s Day. Maybe mom needs a new love in her life — just waiting for her at the shelter.

  • A letter from Meredith, the bride’s sister.

    Dear Miss Perfect Bride,

    Thank you ever so much for sending me an invitation to your wedding. Walking up the stairs to my room would have been so hard for you, considering you’ve never had to do anything before in your life. Well, thanks for taking the time to put a stamp on an envelope!
    I was so surprised to hear of your engagement. I had completely forgotten about it, even though you’ve managed to mention it about four million times since yesterday. Thank you so much for letting me know!

  • “Is there anything in the Bible that might allow for same-sex marriage?”—Mark

    The Bible is unabashedly straightforward: the ideal for marriage is heterosexual. There are admittedly various forms of marriage in the Bible that may not meet the definition of what is often called the “traditional family” (e.g., multiple wives, concubinage, close degrees of marriage between half-siblings, cousins, et al).
    Furthermore, wedding “ceremonies,” as we moderns practice them, do not appear in Scripture. The arranged marriages and politically and religiously motivated unions found there are rarely openly endorsed or forcefully proscribed by Scripture.

  • Our Lady of the Woods will celebrate the traditional holiday of Beltane with a ritual, feast and Maypole dance on Sunday in North Mesa Park. The Beltane Sabbat marks the beginning of the summer for the Celts.
    For many English towns, the Maypole remained stationed at the town center, becoming a gathering place for the whole season, which was a sort of ongoing block party.
    Our Lady of the Woods will recreate some of those good times at their celebration. The potluck feast that follows will give way to songs, dance and stories.
