Today's Features

  • My sister, mom and I have covered a lot of ground together.

    When my sister started the college application process, we took a tour of colleges across the country.

    During this girls-only road trip, we drove to several institutions of higher education including Carnegie University in Pittsburgh, Hobart and William Smith College in Geneva, New York, Lehigh in Bethlehem, Penn., and Notre Dame in Ann Arbor, Mich.

  • In celebration of Los Alamos’ 60th anniversary, The School of New Mexico Dance Theater (NMDT) will present its fifth annual spring recital. “Games and Puzzles” will be presented at           7 p.m. Friday and at 2 p.m. Saturday. Both performances will be presented at the Duane Smith Auditorium and will include recital dances by students in all levels of classes offered at NMDT.

  • There’s really no need to review one of the American Film Institute’s Top 10 Westerns of all time, a winner of four Oscars, a Golden Globe, a Grammy, a slew of BAFTA awards (British Academy of Film and Television Arts), etc., ad nauseam.

    We all know “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” is a great movie.

  • It’s Friday morning in Room 2 at Little Forest Playschool as Maureen Connolly (Ms. Mo as she is known to her students) dons her lab coat.

    This week’s lesson, which is part of the Quirkles series, is on Density Dan. The class of 3- through 5-year-olds sits in a circle on the floor as Ms. Mo reads the story about Density Dan.

    Storytime is followed by lab time, as students experiment using fresh water, salt water and raw eggs.

  • The Los Alamos Arts Council’s Brown Bag Concert series is about to show its loving and dark sides.

     Love and twilight is the theme for the upcoming show, which will be held at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at Fuller Lodge.

    The Amrhan Trio, which includes Cindy Little, piano; Louise Mendius, singer; and John Hargreaves, French horn, dedicated the first half of the program to love. Hargreaves said the pieces deal with many forms of love such as passionate love, unrequited love and betrayed love.  

  • “Sarah, Plain and Tall” is an original play based on the beloved, Newbery Award-winning book by Patricia MacLachlan. The story, frequently used in elementary school curricula, was adapted for the stage by Joseph Robinette and may be familiar to Hallmark Hall of Fame viewers.

    The setting is the early 1900s on a farm in Kansas. The farmer, widower Jacob Witting, played by Scot Johnson, lives with his two children: Anna, age 12 and Caleb, age 7, played by Stacia Paglieri and Sequoya Adams-Rice.

  • Sculpture when compared to painting, drawing, prints and photography is much maligned. There was once a famous New York art critic, his name escapes me but I think it was Clement Greenberg, who once said that ‘sculpture was something you bumped into in a gallery while trying to view a painting.’ This is hardly the best way to begin a review of an exhibition at the Art Center, totally dedicated to sculpture. This acerbic statement by a critic, however, makes an important point.

  • On Sunday, following Divine Liturgy, Father John Hennies, the community and friends of Saint Dimitri Orthodox Church, will gather for the blessing of the new bell tower at 2270 39th St.

    The bell tower grew out of a desire to improve the building’s identification as well as to simplify giving directions on how to reach the church.  

  • The Unitarian Church of Los Alamos will honor Director of Religious Education Joyce Zaugg, who is retiring after more than 23 years of service. Zaugg will be honored during worship services and with an appreciation luncheon Sunday.

    Zaugg began work at the church in January 1986, leading the congregation’s Religious Education program for a small number of children. The program has since grown to more than 70 children taking part in Sunday school classes, youth groups, children’s worship and social activities.

  • You’ll flip when you see the Los Alamos High School Olions’ production of “Bye, Bye Birdie.”

    Seriously. The 1950s weren’t so hot for women’s rights, world peace or suspected Communists, but they were great for music and theater. The local drama club and director Holly Haas made a way boss decision when they picked “Birdie” for their annual musical.
