  •  Think art is just a pretty painting or sculpture? Look beyond the surface – there is so much more to learn than what can be gathered at first glance.

    Barbara Olins Alpert, author of “The Creative Ice Age Brain: Cave Art in the Light of Neuroscience,” will give further insight into Ice Age art during her upcoming presentation at 7 p.m. Thursday at Mesa Public Library. The presentation is part of the Authors Speak series.

  • David E. Hoffman, contributing editor at The Washington Post and former Moscow bureau chief, signs “The Dead Hand: The Untold Story of the Cold War Arms Race and its Dangerous Legacy” at 6 p.m. Thursday at Otowi Station Bookstore.

    He will also give a lecture at 5:15 p.m. at the Bradbury Science Museum.

  • This week I spent some time with some pretty insightful students. Mrs. Romero’s Life Smarts class at Los Alamos High School was gracious enough to have me over to speak about Assets.

    It actually turned into a well rounded discussion about youth. We discussed how they can contribute to decisions that affect their community.

    As adults we need to give serious thought to seeking input from groups of average students. By average students, I’m not talking about education, finances or anything that has a connotation of being less than great.

  • This month, the guitar is being substituted for other string instruments during the Guitars and Gateaux concert series. Los Alamos Arts Council may be presenting a different sound, but the organization is keeping it all within the Guitars and Gateaux family. The event, which is called Strings and Gateaux, will feature desserts and music starting at 7 p.m. March 25 at Fuller Lodge.

    The show will feature the Apple Hill String Quartet, a group of artists-in-residence from the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music located in Nelson, N.H.

  • Do you ever imagine yourself as someone totally different, not necessarily a better or worse person but just someone who doesn’t always do exactly what you do?

    What if I were a single man, one of those old, sloppy men who seem to live on the bus? Maybe I’d really like comic books and I’d be retired from a career in hot glue. Would I think of myself as sloppy? Would I have more sympathy for other, similarly sweat shirted men?

  • On the surface the play, “Sylvia,” looks like a light-hearted comedy about a wacky dog and the impact she has on her new owners. It is light, fluffy entertainment for a Friday or Saturday evening.

    However, this play also seems to offer something more. It shows a couple that learns some valuable life lessons through an unusual source – the family pet.

  • It all started with just one little black cat but, eight years later more than 200 cats receive care annually through the New Mexico Chapter of the Felines and Friends.

    Bobbie Heller of the Felines and Friends explained how she found the cat during a snowstorm. It was living in an abandoned car in a parking lot. She took the cat in and started looking for a rescue organization but couldn’t find one. However, Heller said she was familiar with the Felines and Friends organization in California and decided to establish a chapter in New Mexico.

  • Cub Scout Pack 229 held its Blue and Gold Banquet Monday at the Barranca Elementary School gym. This particular banquet stood out from others because Boy Scouts of America is celebrating 100 years of scouting this year.  

    Honored guests included Paul Rhein, Northern New Mexico District director, Jay Elson,  Associate Order of the Arrow adviser, and Dane Spearing, Troop 22 scoutmaster.  

  • Pull out the dobbers and the lucky charms – it’s time to play bingo to support Los Alamos Right to Life.

    The local organization will host a benefit bingo at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Knights of Columbus, located at 401 Trinity Drive.

    Besides bingo, soup and snacks have been donated to the event.

    The cost of bingo is $14.
