Today's Features

  • The Los Alamos County Council issued a proclamation at its March 1 meeting proclaiming support for the 18th Annual Empty Bowls Project. The annual event will be from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
    For a donation of $10 or more, attendees can choose a hand-painted bowl and enjoy a soup from one of the local restaurants, along with homemade bread and cookies.  

  • Sometimes it feels as though weekends are nothing more than a rut.
    The same routine is churned out over and over again until the two days off from work begin to feel worn out. To breathe life into the weekends, the conventional needs to be kicked aside for an entirely new experience. To achieve that objective, visit the New Mexico Art Museum’s new exhibit, “Case Studies from the Bureau of Contemporary Art.”
    Each work defies conventional and traditional views of art in favor of new, different interpretations.  

  • The Los Alamos Concert Association’s 2010-2011 season continues on March 18, when back by popular demand, Imani Winds returns to Los Alamos. The concert will begin at 8 p.m. in Duane Smith Auditorium on the Los Alamos High School campus.

  • When was the last time you did something kind for someone else?
    This week we look at asset number 26, the asset of caring. This asset is achieved when young people place a high value on helping others.  
    Back in the day, I worked at a radio station in Idaho. One holiday season some young people called the station and asked if I would call a certain phone number and tell them to look on the porch. Presumably, there was a surprise waiting for the person on the other end of the phone line.
