Today's Features

  • Spring break is a time of renewal, of the Earth and of the spirit. I hope you have enjoyed the time off last week if you have children or grandchildren. It is always lovely to see the college students come home for a few days even if it is to do a few loads of laundry and eat a good meal.

    As we see new growth popping up through the ground, I hope we’ll use this as a time to allow for new growth in ourselves and helping our youth to find it within them.

  • “Touched by Fire: Hands that help, hands that create” is the perfect title for the exhibit at Mesa Public Library commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Cerro Grande fire. The show speaks to the power of nature to renew itself and the power of community to rebuild. The show features artwork that looks at the fire itself, the changes to the environment and the renewal of the forest, along with an impressive “Wall of Volunteers” to recognize the huge effort by thousands of people to restore what was lost.

  • Later this week, Mesa Public Library will commence its latest themed cluster of free films. Each one was shot in New Mexico and each has our state’s distinctly dusty ambience.

    The spring/summer selections kick off with “The Left-Handed Gun,” a 1958 Western starring Paul Newman and a Colt single-action handgun.

    Newman plays William Bonney, an excitable, unforgiving cowboy better known by his nickname, Billy the Kid.

  • Everyone has his or her very earliest memories. Author Augusten Burroughs purports to remember lying in his crib, a helpless and anxious infant. But for most of us, life seems to have begun when we were toddlers.

    Before age 2 or 3, I remember nothing. I could have been asleep.

    I could have been dead. My mother disagrees, but I know that “I” was not there.

    I didn’t exist until one very bright moment when I was sitting in the very back of my mom’s Ford Mustang.

    There have been rumors circling within our town that a stranger is working at our local Spitfire Grill. Many people have said that she appeared out of nowhere and others swear that they have seen her before. There is one thing that most of us can agree on: she doesn’t belong here.

  • The Los Alamos Chapter of Hadassah is helping to bring improved medical care to Israel, while at the same time honoring Los Alamos Living Treasure Jacob “Jay” Wechsler.

  • Nano science is not confined to scientific laboratories or computer modules, it’s everywhere.

    Those socks at CB Fox that promote bacteria fighting capabilities so your feet don’t smell – that’s nano technology.

    Or advancements in medicine to treat cancer, that’s nano science, too.

    The Bradbury Science is helping to spread the word about nano science and its importance in people’s lives through NanoDays.

    The program was held today and will continue Wednesday.

  • There may be nothing better than sitting down with a plate of Thin Mints or Tagalongs and a glass of milk.  But what if there was another way to enjoy these sweet treat?

    The Girls Scouts of New Mexico Trails, local chefs and artists are biting deeper into these treats and the results of their culinary explorations will be showcased during the 14th Annual Cookie Caper.

    The event, which is a fundraiser for the Girls Scouts of New Mexico Trails, will be held at     6:30 p.m. April 9 at Bishops Lodge in Santa Fe.

  • Domestic box office results for the weekend of March 26-28, 2010:

  • Los Alamos High School students Alexander Kendrick, Ryan Erickson and his sister, Holly, are science stars on the local and regional scene.

    In May, the three students will see their talent shine bright on an international scale.

    During the Regional Engineering and Science Fair, which was held March 6 at Highlands University in Las Vegas, N.M., each of the students earned first place in their categories as well as the grand award. Kendrick competed in the physical science category and Ryan and Holly entered as a team.
