Today's Features

  • Inspired by the cover photo of Delago Tower in the March 2009 issue of Rock and Ice magazine, Allison Fritz and Jason Halladay began researching travel and climbing logistics in the Dolomites of northern Italy.

    As they read more about the Dolomites’ climbing history, long limestone routes, easy access, great hut system and of course, superb food and drink, they quickly decided that they would spend a week in the Dolomites during their European vacation in the summer of 2009.

  • The Los Alamos Piecemakers Quilt Guild is presenting Jean Biddick, a nationally-known, award-winning quilter, at its monthly meeting  from 7-9 p.m. March 23 at the White Rock Baptist Church.  

    Biddick’s passion has been designing quilts inspired by intricate mosaic tile work seen in cathedrals and historic buildings worldwide.

    She has received numerous accolades for her machine-pieced mosaic tile quilts, including awards from American Quilter’s Society and the International Quilt Festival.

  • This week as we focus on all of the assets, I have some great news to share. On May 11, Search Institute leader Peter Benson will return to Los Alamos after first coming to the city in 1997.

    The Los Alamos Juvenile Justice Advisory Board, Family Strengths Network and Assets In Action have combined time, talent and energy to arrange for the community presentation.

    Benson is the brains behind the research-based work and a world-renown speaker.

  • It may be a strange sort of mid-life crisis, but it’s a desperately real one, nonetheless. Playing hooky from work (again), Greg is approached in the park by a gorgeous Poodle-Lab mix, whose tag reads, simply, “Sylvia.”

  • United Church of Los Alamos held a live and silent auction Sunday, which raised almost $15,000. The proceeds from the auction will go toward the church youth trip to Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, Mexico. Participants will build three homes for families in need.

  • Arno Ilgner offers a philosophy that helps people reach the top of any mountain, both real and metaphorical.

    Ilgner will present his philosophy, called “Warrior’s Way,” during a presentation at 7 p.m. Friday at the Los Alamos Family YMCA.

    He explained the presentation will include a slideshow and a talk based on his new book, “Espresso Lessons.”

    Ilgner added the presentation will be a concentration and practical application of the material he teaches.

  • The Art Center at Fuller Lodge will host an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. March 26 for a unique exhibit of student work.

    “Walls that Speak” features the work of students from the art departments at Los Alamos, Jemez Springs and Pojoaque Valley high schools.

    Starting in the fall of 2009, students from these schools began work on a mural project that was initiated by Dave Fox of CB Fox Department Store, in collaboration with the Art Center at Fuller Lodge.

  • Food isn’t something that  just decorates a plate or fills up your mouth before being digested. It’s so much more than sustenance.

    No, provisions can act as a gateway into something else – a catalyst for a new experience.

    I never thought much about the power of food beyond satisfying my appetite until I watched the movie, “Julie and Julia” and saw one of the characters make bruschetta.

  • There’s a long-standing tradition in Los Alamos.

    Every year, people arrive at Pajarito Mountain ski area with skis and snowboards in hand, dressed in crazy costumes and revved up for some fun.

    This tradition is known as Skiesta, and this year will be the 62nd year it has been held.

    Skiesta features a little bit of everything. Thad Hahn, one of the event organizers, said there is everything from a variety of ski races to a brewery fest.

    Additionally, there will be live music, a costume contest and food.

  • Los Alamos High School students Dov Shlachter, Shaina Riciputi, Jamie Resnick, Kendra Smale, Kathy Lin and Emma Carroll stand out from the crowd. Not just on the local scene but also on a national level.

    This group of seniors are finalists for the National Merit Scholarship Program. This distinction allows them the chance to compete for a $2,500 National Merit Scholarship, to be awarded a corporate-sponsored scholarship or to earn a college-sponsored scholarship.
