  • Great things can be accomplished through collaboration. So expect the music notes to fly in grand fashion when two groups join forces during the upcoming Brown Bag concert, which will be held at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at Fuller Lodge.

    The Amrahn Trio and the Black Mesa Brass will perform in the free concert, which is sponsored by the Los Alamos Arts Council.

    The players in the Amrahn Trio include Cindy Little, pianist; Louise Mendius, soprano; and John Hargreaves, French horn player.

  • An upcoming fundraiser is presenting the community with a win-win situation.

    Participants at the fundraiser can treat themselves to a meal and an evening out while supporting a worthy cause.

  • “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead

    This week, we look at asset nine, Service to Others. I know it sounds rather like a parent favoring one child over another, but asset-wise, this one is near the top of the list for me.

  • Violinist Chang Guo and pianist Yin Shi will host a concert at 7 p.m. March 4 at the Christian Church. Besides being introduced to Guo, a virtuoso violinist, former U.S. Congressman Bill Redmond will give a short presentation about rapid transformation of Chinese society and the influence of the Christian church. Read more in tomorrow's paper.

     

  • Purim, the Jewish holiday that will be held on Sunday, is no solemn occasion. In fact, cranking up the noise in celebration is encouraged.

    David Izraelevitz of the Jewish Center explained that the story behind Purim features heroism and a happy ending, which calls for some vocal merriment.

    During the celebration, a reading of the Book of Esther is conducted.

  • Journalists are low on popularity polls. The idea that we’re a motley crew seems to be conventional wisdom. I’ve been told since high school, maybe even earlier, that the public does not trust the media.

    I was reminded of people’s suspicion toward reporters when I raised a question to a panel of business owners while on an assignment one afternoon. “Watch out,” the moderator had jokingly warned the local entrepreneurs, this question was coming from the media.

  • While chile peppers and tortillas can be found in abundance in New Mexico, seafood is a different story. If your mouth is watering for a crustacean, don’t plan a trip to a coastal destination, just head down to the Rotary Club of Los Alamos’s crab fest.
