Today's Features

  • Good morning asset builders. This week, we need your help in raising the asset category of reading for pleasure.
    Our most recent data point for this asset is that 32 percent of local students feel like they spend a certain amount of time reading or listening to books outside of school for pleasure.
    One way I know we can increase this asset across the board is to give books as gifts. You can take it to the extreme by giving the book you enjoy the most.

  • Last month I moved to Los Alamos and very soon I found out - this is a city of science, “where discoveries are made.” I wanted to know if people here are ready to discover their inner world.
    The more I began thinking about restarting my therapy practice here, the more I became stressed out. I literally stopped experiencing the joy of life.
    Every time I feel disoriented I look inside for insight.

  • The New Mexico Press Women will host the release of its new book, “A History of New Mexico Press Women (1949-2009),” from 2-4 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Flying Star Restaurant on Silver and 8th Street SW in Albuquerque.
    The book chronicles the organization’s 60-year history.
    Where did the association come from?
    The answer to that question is imperative if the group is to know where they are going. At a time when journalism and mass communications is being revolutionized by electronic media, the answer is more important than ever.

  • The LAHS Wish List can help Los Alamos High School staff help students and their friends succeed. Teachers often buy classroom supplies with their own money or students go without needed supplies. 
    Budgets have decreased over the years, as prices of goods have gone up.  Anything contributed will help stretch the dollars and cover the needs.
    Donated items may be dropped off at the LAHS front office with a note including your name and the staff name. LAHS will ensure that the items will be given to the requesting staff member.

  • Autumn signals the end of the growing season, leaving gardeners with mixed feelings; no more pests or weeds, but it is sad when the first frost zaps the tender plants.
    Some autumn duties gardeners share include:
    • Pull used leaves off shrubs
    • Plant spring flowering bulbs
    • Divide perennials
    • Fertilize cool season grasses
    • Cut back on watering at the end of September
    • Renew mulch on perennial beds
    • Cut out canes on raspberry plants that bore fruit this season
