  • Off and on throughout his life, Henry Finney has made art. It was not, however, his first profession. “I was a sociologist … for 20 years (but) I’ve been making art all my life,” he said.

    It would become a major part of his life. Finney realized that while working as a sociologist was rewarding, it “did not satisfy the right side of my mind.”

    There was another side to Finney that needed to be expressed.

  • It’s only 8:48 a.m. and I’ve already eaten twice today. I just destroyed some miniature peanut butter cracker sandwiches. I had breakfast less than two hours ago, but I’ve reached the stage in life where I need to eat miniature peanut butter cracker sandwiches, or bunny-shaped grahams or cheese quesadillas or hamburgers, about six times per day. I’ve reached that stage where my New Year’s resolution necessarily is to gain weight, at least until July.

    At which point, I plan to leave the kitchen long enough to give birth to a baby.

  • In the ‘80s, the search for the new business paradigm shift was going full steam. Businesses yearned to find new and better work models that would reap the most awards. Today, a paradigm shift of sorts is arriving in Los Alamos. The community is being introduced to a type of business that while not new, it is certainly unique in Los Alamos.

  • Molly Jean Willms was recently honored as Rotary Student of the Month for December.

    Willms invited her choir teacher Paula Nichols to join her in accepting this honor, because, Willms said, “Mrs. Nichols brings out the best in her students and is a joy to be around.”

    The Rotary Club of Los Alamos selects one outstanding student from the current Los Alamos High School graduating class to honor each month of the school year.

    Students are selected on the basis of their academics, extracurricular activities and their service to the community.

  • The Art Center at Fuller Lodge exhibition, “Roots of Culture in Northern New Mexico,” presents an opportunity to explore the meaning, not of the word root, as one might expect, but the word culture.

  • 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.
