  • The Los Alamos Historical Society invites the public to the third talk of its 2010-2011 lecture series that will be at 7:30 p.m. Nov.9 in the Pajarito Room of Fuller Lodge. Charles “Chick” Keller will talk about, “Los Alamos Non-Defense Research: The Once and Future Lab.”
    The history of Los Alamos has been largely concentrated on the Manhattan Project and its immediate aftermath.
    While that was an important time in the history of Los Alamos National Laboratory, there are other stories to tell.

  • Community values youth is our main focus this week, and for this one, I need your help.
    Two local programs run by Assets are in need of a few volunteers or donations and I’d like you to give it some thought.
    Cookies and Conversation is a monthly program we do at Los Alamos High School and would like to expand once again to Los Alamos Middle School.
    My hope is that you are willing to donate time and/or cookies to the cause.

  • “Halloween was on Sunday this year. That made me wonder again if Christians should celebrate this ‘holiday.’ ” — Chris

    Many Christians do not “celebrate” Halloween as a matter of both faith and conscience.  Adequate biblical justification may be found to justify avoiding this holiday, which has its roots in paganism. Furthermore, Halloween is likely “over the top” in terms of too much money spent and too much focus on the acquisition of tooth-rotting candy.
