  • The Tools for Schools project got underway Aug. 6 and 7 when members from the Unitarian and Bethlehem Lutheran churches unloaded a truckload of school supplies.

    Each year the Tools for Schools project donates thousands of dollars in school supplies to at-risk students in poverty, to ensure that all students start the year with the tools they need to accomplish their academic work.

    The project’s vision is to help students identify positively with school by minimizing the embarrassment of not having

    adequate supplies.

  • UNM-LA has yoga classes to suit everyone this fall

    Who needs yoga? According to UNM-Los Alamos yoga instructor, Siri Deva Khalsa, the answer is “everyone.”

    “The more civilization progresses, the more we need yoga,” he said.

    For the young, yoga provides mental discipline and good techniques to discipline the mind.

    “Yoga is the perfect antidote to electronic media,” Khalsa said. “While modern media scatters your attention, yoga has the opposite effect.” It helps you focus and relax at the same time.”

    Although we know more about the sun than any other star, only the surface is directly visible. How

  • Editor’s note: Dana Crooks underwent surgery this summer in North Carolina and is recovering. She wrote this story because she wanted to share her experience.

    During the summer, some people go on vacations in paradise or have family reunions to attend. Some people go on road trips across the country. Some get jobs to earn money for college or that new car they want. Others just want to make the best of it and enjoy the break from textbooks and piles of homework.

  • This Friday night we’ll be at the Mari-Mac Shopping Center with Warren Hood and the Marshall Ford Swing Band featuring Emily Gimble. I hope that the weather is something like Wednesday night’s because then the bands will pay us to come here.

    Warren Hood is the fiddler for the Waybacks. Before that, he was the original fiddler for the South Austin Jug Band. Both bands have played great concerts in Los Alamos. He’s all over his violin with all styles of music and has been onstage since he was 4 years old.
