  • It is a 12-year-old script but the story never gets old.

    From 6:30-8:30 p.m. April 11, the Santa Fe Stake of the Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church will present a timeless story in the form of a pageant titled, “Christ’s Passage to Resurrection” at the Los Alamos ward.

    Brent and Marcia Boyack of Los Alamos wrote the script, which is based on the King James’ version of the New Testament.

    “We wanted to provide a special Easter experience for members of our church,” Brent said.

  • Mental institutions do not seem to be popular locations for inspiring hope, especially not the one featured in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” Medication, group therapy and alienation from the outside world are emphasized in the fictional institution. There is not much room for anything else so the patients become prisoners in a hopeless situation. That is, until a newcomer is admitted.

  • Today, we are quite excited to scratch our armpits and other body parts in front of Ed Bonelli, who is visiting from a different folder in the computer we live in when we’re not in the newspaper.

    Ed is a character in a new, unpublished play. He doesn’t do much in the play, other than occupy a living room, and as far as we can tell, he doesn’t do anything outside of it. However, we like his company, if only because we’re sick of each others’, and we like pestering him with questions.

    Monkeys: Ed, why don’t you tell us about the play?

  • One of the most intergenerational events happens Saturday with the annual Fabulous 50s’ Family Sock Hop from Los Alamos Family Council.

    The rooty toot toot, root beer floating, burger – and fries – benefit will aid the Family Council and the Youth Activity Center programs for the next year and benefit everyone from youth to seniors.

  • The Great Southwest Council of the Boy Scouts of America honored local resident Sandy Jennings with the council-level distinguish service award, the Silver Beaver, at the annual recognition event held Feb. 21 in Albuquerque.

    The Silver Beaver is the highest award that can be presented by a local council for noteworthy service of an exceptional character to youth within the council.

  • During the Los Alamos County Speech Contest, students needed to be quick with their words and smooth with their talk. The most skilled speakers proved to be Piñon Elementary School fifth-graders Derek Selvage and John Valdiviez.

    Selvege earned first place in the serious speech competition and Valdiviez earned first place in the humorous competition.

    The title of Selvege’s speech was, “Are you going to help me?” by Mark Hansen. Valdiviez presented a speech titled, “Librarian from the Black Lagoon,” by Mike Thaler.

  • There is something special about the Capitol Building in Santa Fe. As the saying goes, there is more to it than what meets the eye. The building is significant for more reasons than just its appearance; it is the only round capitol building in the U.S. It is what the building contains inside that makes it invaluable.

    Walking down corridors, climbing up stairs and entering offices, the evidence of the Capitol’s significance is everywhere. It is like viewing a collage, or spinning kaleidoscope of the art world in New Mexico.

  • The American Legion will observe its founding today.

    While the celebration will be simple, a few blue and gold balloons will hang from the local post’s marquee and a sign recognizing the legion turning 90 will be displayed, it will honor a very long and successful history of helping veterans and the community.

    Since its founding in 1919, more than 15,000 American Legion Posts have sprung up throughout the United States to serve veterans, their families and children in local communities.

  • The work of the Boy Scouts of America never ends and their fundraising efforts continue with their annual giving campaign, called Friends of Scouting.

    Paul Rhien, Northern New Mexico district executive, said many exciting things are happening in the district.

    “We are more and more able to expand our program and include more and more youth from the Española and Taos communities,“ he said.

  • The next performer to grace the stage at Duane Smith Auditorium in the Los Alamos Concert Association’s “Jewel of a Season” will be pianist Jie Chen. The concert will begin at 8 p.m. March 21. Chen will also present a master class on March 22.
