Today's Features

  • More magnificent musical melodies will fill the air this week as Dr. Gregory Schneider kicks off another season of Music Together.

    The preschool aged program runs for ten weeks and takes place in both Los Alamos and White Rock.  

    The classes began this week and will run 10 weeks. Two classes are held Mondays at 9 a.m. in White Rock Town Hall and 5 p.m. at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church.  

  • When I was 5 years old, I thought our apartment was haunted by the spirit of a girl exactly my age who’d been pushed down the stairs and killed by her parents. I thought I slept in her room. I thought she lived in my closet and made the room cold at night.

    A year or two later, I believed the spirit of my father’s little sister, who died when she was 7, would try to drown me in the shower. I looked behind myself dozens of times every time I shampooed my hair. I would wash as fast as I could and leap into my towel.

  • Sam Shepard’s play “Fool for Love,” now playing at the Los Alamos Little Theatre, is distinctly not a family show.  It contains strong language, violence and content suitable for mature audiences only.  

  • Some may consider reading to be a solitary and sedentary activity. Well, Aspen Elementary School will introduce a new perspective toward reading starting Thursday.

    This year’s Scholastic Book Fair not only brings books and different activities to the whole family, it also offers the chance to take literary travels around the world.

    The theme for this year’s book fair, Aspen Librarian Kristine Bennett said, is “Read Around the World.”

  • Love is a subject that the Los Alamos Little Theater has tackled in the past. A woman falls in love with Van Gogh in “Starry Night;” a personal ad brings a woman from Maine to the plains of Kansas to get married in “Sarah, Plain and Tall;” a Shakespeare festival brings romance to two strangers in “Time Enough.”  

    The community theater has shown love is all sorts of situations, but in its latest play, “Fool for Love,” the subject is taken to a whole different level.

  • Los Alamos High School students Emma Carroll, Kathy Lin, Jamie Resnick, Shaina Riciputi, Dov Shlachter and Kendra Smale are a part of a nationwide group of students who share an impressive accomplishment.

    Carroll, Lin, Resnick, Riciputi, Shlachter and Smale are among the 16,000 semifinalists in the 55th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

    To be a semifinalist means they are able to continue to compete for approximately 8,200 National Merit Scholarships that are worth more than $36 million that will be offered next spring.

  • When it comes to art, there is no age requirement. Individuals do not need to be an adult to explore their creativity. Therefore, for its fall 2009 classes and workshops, the Art Center at Fuller Lodge is opening its doors to the younger generation of artists.

    These classes for elementary through middle school students include Alternative Perceptions, Clay: Fun, Form and Function, Drawing of the Animal World, Portraits of Self and Others and Tie Dye.

  • In one image, the sunlight glares off the side of a Coke bottle, creating a blinding oblong star over the famous red label. In another, a narrow river suddenly plummets into an avalanche of white rapids. Both objects look completely believable, solid and without-a-doubt three-dimensional.

    Never mind that the bottle is 5-feet tall, or that instead rushing down the side of the side of a mountain, the river and its attendant waterfall crash down the paved un-magnificent,  flat sidewalk.
