Today's Features

  • The congregation at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church has put a lot of work into the new Kelly Hall.

    Money has been raised, walls were constructed and landscaping has been planted.

    With the upstairs of the new hall completed and just a few items left to do on the downstairs level, the time seems right to celebrate what the congregation accomplished. Yep, it’s time to party.

  • It rained this afternoon and the moisture made the night air cool and crisp, but it feels stifling in my apartment.

    My home’s airless atmosphere reflects my present mind. I keep looking at the blinking cursor on the computer screen and wonder what should be my next word. Writer’s block feels suffocating. I can’t think of anything to write, my only thought is how long my creative limitations are stretching out at the moment.

  • “It began over three years ago,” Jan McDonald said, speaking of “Sweet,” his first CD release.  “The project grew from a trumpet and rhythm section to friends and then more friends and then a string section and more friends.”

    McDonald and “friends,” all accomplished musicians, will perform jazz standards and original compositions from “Sweet” in a Los Alamos concert at 4 p.m. Sunday at Fuller Lodge, accompanied by Dave Anderson, woodwinds and The Bert Dalton Trio.

  • Are you and your pet not on the same wavelength? Does it seem your commands are falling on deaf ears? Suzy Godsey, a trainer who uses the tools from Access Consciousness, can help improve the communication between pets and their owners.

    Godsey will share her tools with Los Alamos pet owners in September.

    Her class, The Happy Dog with Suzy Godsey, will be held from 5:30-9:30 p.m. Sept. 8-9 at the Los Alamos Dog Obedience Club, located at 246 E. Road.

  • Find out about the artist who created these paintings and about her upcoming exhibit here in Los ALamos in Thursday's Kaleidoscope.

  • For freshmen in high school, it’s pretty common to feel a little lost once they walk through the school’s doors. Some of their questions might be: Where are the classrooms, what are the best schedules, what clubs and activities are best to be involved in.   

    Luckily, the Youth Mobilizers, a program administrated by the Family YMCA, has come up with a resource to answer these and other questions – from the real experts on these issues.  

    And just who are these walking encyclopedias of high school information? They are high school seniors.

  • New Mexico has played a major role in Lee Abbott’s work. The author of six collections of short fiction including “Wet Places at Noon,” “The Heart Never Fits its Wanting” and “Love is the Crooked Thing,” explained the easy answer behind his literary attraction to New Mexico is that he grew up in Las Cruces. The more complex answer is “everything that mattered to me happened in New Mexico,” Abbott said.

  • This week, I had the priviledge of working with the Los Alamos Middle School Hawks on A Change of Heart. A Change of Heart is a 40 Developmental Assets based approach to improving school climate.

    New Mexico now requires schools to have a district wide plan for bullying prevention and a Change of Heart is a community building effort for the Hawks as they assemble for the new year.

  • If you love to dance but missed starting ballet when you were 6, or if your feet itch every time you hear a fiddle play, you are in luck: Belisama Irish Dance has expanded its Los Alamos classes to two days a week. Classes will now be held on Tuesdays and Fridays at the New Mexico Dance Theater studio at 149 Central Park Square.
