Today's Features

  • Some people are born into art and some people just sort of discover a hidden talent somewhere along the path of life. Such is the case of Santa Fe artist Rodney Estrada.

    Estrada is a chef by trade but has found that his love for art has blossomed over the years and is now in full bloom.

  • Scott Carlsten, a sophomore at Los Alamos High School, can worry a little less about playing for his college education. Carlsten is the recipient of the $25,000 Distinguished Award of the EnergySolutions Foundation scholarship. This is in addition to the initial $2,000 scholarship he received from the Foundation earlier this year.

  • Registration for the 10th annual Y Earth Service (YES) Corps is open at The Family YMCA. The YES Corps program is available to youth ages 11-17.  Participants have an opportunity to engage with leadership, cross-cultural awareness and environmental education and action projects, while learning invaluable job skills and work ethics.

  • After a great response to last week’s column on entitlement and being above the rules, I’d like to take it one step further and get your feedback on the issue of bullying.

    I hear about it a lot, everything from student-to-student bullying to parent-to-teacher bullying to colleague-to-colleague bullying.

    So what are you seeing? More importantly what are you or should we be doing? What types of things do you believe could be implemented in a community wide plan to address the issue?

  • Nothing expresses compassion, empathy and comfort like a                                           handmade item.  Not only does one feel the warmth from the fabric but also from the care in each stitch sewn into a quilt or a pillowcase made by willing hands.

  • The histories of the Manhattan Project and the Ranch School are pretty well known to the community. However, there is another story about Los Alamos that is not frequently told. With the opening of a historic building approaching, this should change.

    The Romero Cabin, one of two remaining homestead cabins on the Pajarito Plateau, will be unveiled May 1. A grand opening will be at 11 a.m.

  • Get ready for a history lesson in music. Guitarist Daniel Weston will take Los Alamos on an audio tour of the renaissance through the baroque period.

    This venture in history’s music will occur during the Guitar and Gateaux show, which will be at 7 p.m. Thursday at Fuller Lodge.

    While the program is varied, a few highlights include works by Spanish Impressionist composer Francisco Tarrega. Weston will also step out into contemporary times with a few of his own pieces.

  • If I were to assign a grade to my performance as a Leadership Los Alamos student, it might be a C. I have cut class twice and snuck out of class early. Plus my attitude has been slightly less than stellar. In fact, the night before the last session I engaged in a mental tantrum. I whined to myself that I had too much to do, the session started too early, it was going to be held in a location too far away.  

  • Once again my column this week finds me trying to learn more about Percy Talbott, the ex-convict who has decided to make Gilead her new home. I know I am not alone when I say that although Gilead is a wonderful town, it is not a place for criminals to start over.

    In this week’s edition, I speak with Shelby Thorpe, resident of Gilead and long-time friend of Hannah Ferguson, who hired Ms. Talbott to work at The Spitfire Grill, which Mrs. Ferguson owns.

  • Sometimes what makes music special goes beyond how it sounds. For Coro de Cámara, the upcoming concert features a piece that holds a particular sentiment to the group.

    The concert, “Let the River Run,” which will be at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Kelly Hall at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, will include a work created by one of the chorus members, Joe Cox.

    The piece is titled, “I want Jesus to Walk with Me.” It will be included in the second half of the program with other spirituals. The first half is dedicated to folk songs.
