  • The Los Alamos Winter Farmer’s Market is more than just a place to purchase bread; it’s an opportunity for organizations to collaborate and for the community to learn about area businesses.

    The event is held from 8 a.m.-noon the second Thursday of every month at Fuller Lodge.

    It’s a monthly event that features dedicated businesses. Some vendors travel as far as 200 miles round trip, to furnish items for the market.

  • On March 7, the Los Alamos Concert Association welcomes one of the most-respected early-music groups to Los Alamos.  Ensemble Caprice will perform a concert of Renaissance and Baroque period music at 4 p.m. in Duane Smith Auditorium.

  • Heart disease seems to be full of stealth. Like a predator approaching its prey, cardiovascular diseases can creep unnoticed and silent until they spring into a brutal attack. Similar to other predators, these diseases can be misunderstood. Therefore, the Los Alamos Heart Council is providing some education and insight to these quiet killers.

    The council is hosting its annual community seminar at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the First Baptist Church, located at 2200 Diamond Drive.

  • University of New Mexico-Los Alamos may be a community college but its influence extends beyond county lines. For instance, student Lise Lookman has been named to the 2010 New Mexico All-State Academic Team.

    Team members were recognized at a ceremony held Feb.11 at the State Capitol in Santa Fe. In addition to being eligible for state scholarships, New Mexico team members are eligible to compete for the USA Today sponsored All- USA Academic Team.

  • The Los Alamos High School Science Bowl team won first place in the regional competition for the National Science Bowl, held Feb. 13, on the Albuquerque Academy campus. Thirty-four teams from Northern New Mexico high schools competed in the regional event.

  • Enter a world filled with fairies, courtiers, a king and queen, a handsome prince, and — of course — Princess Aurora this weekend when New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company (NMDT-PC) presents “The Sleeping Beauty.” Read more in tomorrow's Kaleidoscope.

     

  • Enter a world filled with fairies, courtiers, a king and queen, a handsome prince, and — of course — Princess Aurora this weekend when New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company (NMDT-PC) presents “The Sleeping Beauty.”

  • Like many, the events that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001 had a deep impact on Santa Fe writer and former diplomat Michael Morgan.

    “After  9/11, I was concerned. Besides from the immediate clashes around the world, there was a clash of narratives. Part of the clashes were mistaken, based on misinformation,” Morgan said.

    As a result, he wrote “Lost History: The Enduring Legacy of Muslim Scientists, Thinkers and Artists.” National Geographic published the book in 2007.

  • Watching the first moments of the New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company’s production of “The Sleeping Beauty” on a cold February night gave me the same feeling I experience when I notice spring bulbs poking through the snow and frozen ground. It’s a giddiness that something great is on its way. The gray and gloom of winter is dwindling.

    Likewise, NMDT-PC’s “The Sleeping Beauty” offers all the sparkle, color and sweetness to escape a gray day.

  • Saturday night’s performance of “Parted Waters” at Teatro Paraguas in Santa Fe was a treat for the mind, heart and soul.  

    Local playwright Robert Benjamin’s drama of a New Mexican family grappling with their Judaic roots presents a credible snapshot of how three generations of Hispanic men come to different terms with their ancestry.  

    On yet another level, the play suggests the crucial need for acceptance and respect for cultural differences among all people.
