Today's Features

  • The 2010-2011 Los Alamos Concert Association season opens with Julie Albers, cellist and Orion Weiss, pianist, at 4 p.m. Oct. 17. Albers studied at the Cleveland Institute of Music and won the Grand Prize at the XIII International Competition for Young Musicians in Douai, France.

  • The Friends of Mesa Public Library (FMPL) members welcomed five seniors and their families to the spring member luncheon  May 19.

    FMPL members also announced the upcoming awards through the Friends of Mesa Public Library Scholarship and the June Ettinger Memorial Scholarship. Scholarship winners have written a personal narrative about a fiction or non-fiction book that has become important to the understanding of themselves or the human condition.

  • “The Cowboys” is a bit like “Little House on the Prairie” meets “The Patriot.”

    Instead of Michael Landon or Mel Gibson, imagine an awkwardly paternal John Wayne. Rather than the complacency of Walnut Grove or the sadism of the Revolutionary War, picture New Mexico in the Old West – a hard life of herding cattle and breaking horses, and young men looking for an easier way. Ranch hands were heading toward the rivers, planning to find lots of gold and retire early.

  • Hunger doesn’t sleep or come to a stand still. It continually gnarls inside people’s stomachs and clings to their minds.

    As a result, National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 4112, LA Cares, LA Community Food Bank and the Northern New Mexico District of the Boy Scouts of America are working to respond to this condition and wipe hunger away.

    The annual Spring Community Food Drive is scheduled for Saturday. LA Cares will distribute donations.

  • My inspiration to pursue different things comes from the oddest places. After watching the 1992 Olympics, I became inspired to try  figure skating. When I read about one of the twin sisters in the “Sweet Valley High” book series working on the high school newspaper, I thought I would give journalism a try.

    And as a result of watching the main character in a movie serve up slices of a pie called Chocolate Strawberry Oasis, I strolled down the aisles of the grocery store looking for the ingredients to make this dessert myself.

  • After six years of orange plastic fencing, towering construction equipment and the screech of wood meeting an electric saw, Crossroads Bible Church has some new sites to take in. There are the sparkling white walls in the stairwells and hallways, a rich–colored carpet that is free of dirty footprints and an aroma of a brand-new building that is ready and waiting for the public and the church congregation.

  • Today, the American Legion Auxiliary will offer the public a symbol of service men and women’s sacrifice.

    The red crepe poppy is a reminder of the sacrifice of countless thousands called to war. Distributing the crepe poppies is an annual event undertaken by the members of Unit 90 in Los Alamos. Volunteers from the unit will come again to take part in this nationwide program in memory of the citizen soldiers who gave their lives in the cause of freedom.

    Funds collected on Poppy Day are used to assist needy veterans and their families.  

  • “Loved to Serve; Serve to Love” is the theme for the day camp that will be held from June 28 through July 2 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church. Once again, the church will host Rainbow Trail Day Camp from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday -Friday at 2390 North Road. The Day Camp is for older elementary kids who have just completed third through sixth grades.

  • The fruits of music teachers’ labors are often revealed when their students take the stage. However, things will be shaken up a bit during a free concert at 7 p.m. Friday at Fuller Lodge.

    Members of the Los Alamos Music Teachers Association will step into the spotlight and prove why they are fit to teach.

    Ted Vives, president of the association, along with members Frances Meier, Richard Hannemann, Kay Newman and Gina Doorn, will perform in the show.

  • If it isn’t broke, then why fix it? Ruth Wilson Francisco, soprano, and Nancy Thomas, pianist, have taken a musical program that features old fashioned tunes, classical pieces and hymns across the U.S. They have performed this program in Utah, Colorado, Albuquerque and now they are bringing it to Los Alamos.

    Wilson Francisco and Thomas will perform in the Los Alamos Arts Council’s Brown Bag Show at         12:30 p.m. Wednesday at Fuller Lodge.
