  • I’m sorry, but the column this week is about shameless self promotion.

    As the month of January has been focusing on the Asset category of support, this week is about supporting the Assets program.

    On Feb. 6, many local businesses will open their doors to host an indoor, miniature golf hole to raise funds for Assets In Action.

    The project called, the Nineteenth Hole, in reference to the place where golfers stop for lunch after a round of golf, was developed last year and continues again in 2010.

  • Friday morning, I woke up to a sunny Florida day, the golf course sparkling outside my in-laws’ patio. Friday evening, I was back in Los Alamos, finally, after one of the most stressful periods of waiting I’ve ever experienced.

    It began while I was admiring the sixth hole of the short, crane-filled golf course at The Groves in Land O’ Lakes, when I felt a new pregnancy symptom that didn’t seem right.

    I decided to ignore it.

  • A novice director reveals a natural talent for the stage with the Los Alamos Little Theater’s production of “12 Angry Men.” It’s the first play Courtney Lounsbury has directed and after seeing her work Saturday night, I hope it will not be the last time her work will be performed.

  • In tough economic times, everyone feels the pinch, and schools are certainly not immune to the sharp squeeze in funds.

    Therefore, in response to the changes in funding rules for high school activities, which have made it more expensive to travel and participate in festivals and competitions, the four choirs at Los Alamos High School and the LAHS Choir Booster Club are rolling up their sleeves and exerting some fundraising prowess.

    The Winter WaffleFest will be held from 8 -10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Masonic Temple.

  • After a successful run last year, the organizers of the K2 Women’s Weekend decided if it’s not broke, why fix it?

    As a result, the weekend program is returning to Pajarito Mountain Ski Area. It will be held Feb. 5-7.

    Amy Bauer, coordinator for the weekend, said the program will have the same format as last year.

  • Los Alamos is among the communities throughout the world that are raising funds to provide relief to Haiti, which was devastated by an earthquake on Jan. 12.

    A fundraiser for Haiti will be held from 5-7 p.m. Friday at the Best Western Hilltop House Hotel. There will be appetizers, live music, dancing, a silent auction and a cash bar. Tickets cost $25. All the proceeds will go toward the Partners in Health.

  • Experience a partnership of artistic proportions. Not only is music and poetry being paired together, but the Los Alamos Choral Society and members of the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra are collaborating to present these two mediums in concert.  

     The concert, “Choral Masterworks by Ralph Vaughan Williams,” will begin at 3 p.m. Jan. 24 at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church on Canyon Road.

  • Put on some goggles, light up the bunsen burner and observe innovations in science take flight during the annual Los Alamos County Science Fair Saturday in the Los Alamos High School cafeteria.

    The public is invited to view the projects between 12:30-2:30 p.m.

    Students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade will display their projects in elementary, elementary class, junior and senior divisions.
