  • The nominations are in for the first annual Assets in Action community awards ceremony to be held Friday.

    The many residents nominated represent businesses, individuals, couples, students and youth.

    Throughout December, we have looked at the Assets category of support and those nominated through the process demonstrate support across the board.

  • On Jan. 9, the Los Alamos Concert Association brings Trio Solisti, the group The New Yorker magazine calls “the most exciting piano trio in America,” to Los Alamos.  Trio Solisti will begin performing at 8 p.m. in the Duane Smith Auditorium, and a reception will follow the concert.

    Trio Solisti,  or “three soloists,” is comprised of violinist Maria Bachmann, cellist Alexis Pia Gerlach and pianist Jon Klibonoff. They are acclaimed artists in their own right, who share a common vision.  

  • If your're looking for some conversation, a way to satisfy curiosity or just make a connection, there is a simple to accomplish these objectives. Just sit down to dinner.

    For several years, the Our Lady of the Woods has hosted a dinner the first Friday of every month. The event is not to escape the chore of cooking at home but to provide outreach to the community.

    Rowan, the high priestess of Our Lady of the Woods, explained while the local Wiccan coven opens its Sabbaths to the community, the events do not really give participants an opportunity to socialize.

  • The newest exhibit at Mesa Public Library, “Castles and Clans collection,” reflects not only the beauty of  Scottish castles but a personal tie to the artists. Painter Karol Mack of Santa Fe and writer Brian Mack of  Estes Park, Colo., both have Scottish ancesters and have traveled extensively throughout the country.

    Their work, which extended over 10 years, has been accumulated into a book, “Scotland: Castles and Clans the Legends.” Karol’s oil paintings illustrate the book Brian wrote.

  • I’ll confess I don’t know much about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories. In fact, I really only have two bits of information. The fictional detective has a friend named Dr. Watson and resides at Baker Street.

    It seems I am in the minority. When doing a search on the Internet of Sherlock Holmes, it showed everything from a Web site for a Sherlock Holmes society to sites about this year’s movie starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.

  • I’ve always believed in the magic of Christmas Eve. In fact, I directed most of my childhood excitement and wonder for the holiday season toward the day before the big day. It’s the night that Santa Claus makes his flight around the world; the short time before angels appeared to shepherds and informed them that something miraculous had occurred; and the reminder to everyone to drop their normal work routine and pay respects to what is really important.

  • Los Alamos High School strives for excellence and its efforts are paying off. U.S.  News and World Report, in collaboration with School Evaluation Services, recently awarded the high school a silver medal in the Best High Schools 2009 Search.

    Not only did LAHS earn this recognition while being cast in a sea of more than 21,000 public high schools across the country, but it also has the distinction of being only one of two schools in New Mexico that earned the silver medal ranking.

    The other high school was La Cueva High School. No school in New Mexico won gold.

  • Delivering Christmas to everyone

    Thank you to the many parishioners of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, Los Alamos community members and organizations, and a group of elementary students at Aspen Elementary School for your generous contributions to the success of the Angel Tree program.  All of the presents under the tree were a child’s dream come true.
