  • A piece of art and a piece of history can appear to be two separate things.

    Are there any ties between an oil painting depicting George Washington crossing the Delaware River and the accounts of the Revolutionary War?

    Perhaps through more than what meets the eye.

    This summer, Los Alamos Middle School teachers Jon Pyle and Dana Kline will discover just how art and history are linked.

  • Eleven college-bound high school students from Northern New Mexico have been selected for scholarships administered by the J. Robert Oppenheimer Memorial Committee (JROMC).

    The JROMC has awarded 146 scholarships and other awards totaling $302,000 since the program began in 1984.

    Memorial Day is a national holiday to thank and honor those who have given their lives in the nation’s service.

    Service men and women have given their lives for their country during times of war and conflict around the world.

    They willingly did so to defend citizens’ freedom and way of life.

  • Why are we so fascinated with monsters, ghosts and vampires?  Folk tales are as stuffed with scary beings as modern movies, TV series and novels.

    Dr. Mickey Marsee will explore this question in the UNM-LA summer class, “The Monster Within: Monsters and Vampires in Fiction and Movies.” The three-credit class will meet from noon-2 p.m. Mondays starting June 7 for eight weeks. It will also be offered in the fall. Students may audit the course or take it for credit.

  • An icon painting workshop in the Byzantine-Russian tradition will be held June 21-26 in Santa Fe.
