  • Welcome aboard a U.S. Navy Cargo Ship the USS Reluctant, which is operating in the back waters of the Pacific in the spring of 1945. This is not a very happy ship.
    The sailors aboard are suffering from the deadly boredom that comes from the routine delivery of cargo during wartime. To make things worse, the ship’s captain is a cantankerous, small-minded man who refuses to allow the men liberty. The only ones making life on the ship tolerable are “Mister” Roberts, Doc and the feisty woman-chasing Ensign Pulver.
    Mister Roberts shares the crew’s dislike for the captain, which is one reason for his popularity. Roberts joined the Navy to fight and hates being inactive almost as much as he hates the captain. He’s eager to get into the war before it ends. He is repeatedly writing requests for transfer off the “Reluctant” to a combat ship. This infuriates the captain, who is struggling to get a promotion to commander.
    Brad Lounsbury, director of “Mister Roberts,” shares his vision for the production.

  • The 18th annual Dog Jog will be April 25 in White Rock and as part of the annual festivities the Los Alamos Friends of the Shelter holds a logo contest for children in third through sixth grades.
    Though the competition was fierce, after careful consideration, the judges chose the original artwork of Bella Robertson, a fifth grader at Aspen Elementary School.
    Robertson chose her dog, Jake, as her subject. Robertson’s favorite part of Jake, a 9-year-old dog adopted as a puppy from a shelter, is that he is always loving. Her design will be featured on the T-shirts provided to the entrants, and she will receive a T-shirt as her prize.
    Second place in the contest went to Sayra Villalobos, third place to Tina Fanelle and fourth place to Sevanna Swanson. Honorable mentions were given to John Worley, Isabella Manzanares and Savanna Martin.
    The Dog Jog is a fundraiser for the Los Alamos Friends of the Shelter. Money raised is used to purchase supplies, to pay for extraordinary medical expenses, and to support adoptions the Los Alamos Animal Shelter. The Friends of the Shelter also financially supports spay/neuter programs in underserved areas of northern New Mexico. The annual Dog Jog is sponsored by the Mountain Canine Corps, the Los Alamos Dog Obedience Club and the Atomic City Road Runners.

  • County Councilor David Izraelevitz is the guest speaker for the next Lunch with a Leader meeting.
    The meeting will be 11;45 a.m. March 17 at the Mesa Public Library and is open to the entire community, sponsored by the Los Alamos League of Women Voters.
    Izraelevitz is a first-generation American who immigrated to the United States from Uruguay, South America when he was 11.
    While a graduate student at MIT, he met his future wife Terry who was a graduate student at Boston University. After marriage and completing his Ph.D. in electrical engineering, Izraelevitz began employment at a research firm outside of Boston. The opportunity to help start a new company led Izraelevitz to move with Terry and their three sons to Los Alamos in 1995. Although the start-up folded after a few years, his newfound love for Los Alamos motivated him to find a way to stay here, and he was able to telecommute for the subsequent 10 years for a company in the Bay Area.
    He eventually joined Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2005 and is currently a team leader doing research in signal processing for nuclear nonproliferation applications.

  • Learn about the unique and exotic wildlife of southwestern Brazil from two photographers who made the trip last summer. The free program is 7 p.m. Thursday at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center.
    Bob Walker and Martin Cooper will share photos and stories about the wildlife they saw on their journey. Animals featured in their talk will be jaguars, caiman, giant river otters, capybara, giant anteaters, ocelot, Southern tamandua and many species of birds.
    In July 2014, Walker and his wife, Laurie, traveled with Cooper and his wife, Bev, to southwestern Brazil to photograph wildlife. The first phase of the trip was to the Northern Pantanal region, which is a large floodplain, although they were there in the “dry” season.
    They were guided by a professional photographer, Roy Toft, on one of his photo expeditions. The second phase of the trip was to Iguassu Falls, an extraordinary set of cataracts near the border between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. The third phase of the trip was to Bonito and the Sothern Pantanal region.
    Walker has lived in Los Alamos for more than 30 years, and has been a hobbyist photographer for the last 25 years, covering sporting events, nature and wildlife. More recently, he has been interested in photography of birds, North American and across the world.
