  • The community is receiving a gift Saturday. This present is for all ages and costs just a buck. All that is required is for people to show up.

    The gift, the Family Fun Festival, is hosted by the Family Strengths Network and will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at Fuller Lodge.  The admission fee is $1 for persons age 3 and older.

  • A treat for tough times, Los Alamos Light Opera’s production of “The Sound of Music” is wholesome family entertainment with the uplifting music of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II not to mention the cutest kids in town.

    Director Laurie Tomlinson said, “Musical Director Gretchen Amstutz and I chose this musical because of its universal appeal and the cast requirements. The seven Von Trapp children and an abbey full of nuns gave members of the community a great opportunity to participate.”

  • I’ll probably never learn to master any type of visual art. Those people who claim they can only draw stick figures? Yep, I am one of them. However, my artistic handicap does not stop me from appreciating what others can do. There has been a lot of ground covered to gain this appreciation.

    I’ve toured the Vatican, the Louvre, the Tate, the Museo Reina Sofia; I’ve watched artists mold figurines from soft, palpable glass in Venice and I’ve observed artists painting peonies at the Denver Botanical Gardens.

  • This season, Mesa Public Library celebrates not only 60 years of filmmaking in New Mexico, but 60 years of sweeping change.

    The line-up begins Thursday with “Santa Fe Trail” (1940), a politically incorrect film that could never be made today and continues to offend many people.

    Nevertheless, it’s well worth watching because it offers a compelling case that America, for all its faults, has come a remarkably long way.  

    It’s also pure Hollywood and therefore funny, sweet and even a little endearing.

  • Two New Mexico high school seniors who are interested in science will be selected for an all expense paid, month-long trip to West Virginia’s Potomac Highlands for the National Youth Science Camp.  Applications are now being accepted for the prestigious 2009 program.

    Each year in the summer following graduation, two New Mexico high school seniors attend the intense camp for young scientists.  

    Last year, the New Mexico delegates were Megan Johnson and Kevin Wymer, both of Rio Rancho High School.  

  • It was a different world for Robert Efroymson back in September 2006 when he plumped down a hefty advance for a Tesla electric sports car, which was then expected for delivery in early 2008.

    Since then, the scientist and venture capitalist met his wife, moved to Albuquerque and had a son.

    Now he has a piece of the future.

    Tesla meanwhile had moved to Albuquerque to set up operations and then in the ups and downs of take off, moved back to California.

  • “New Mexico Women Making a Difference,” an exhibit of 35 black-and-white photographs by aj Melnick, opens at the Los Alamos Historical Museum on March 19 with a reception from 4-6 p.m. As is characteristic of Melnick’s work, the show is inclusive – with women from various fields and representative of the multi-cultural New Mexico population.

  • Scale cliffs, creep up rocks and conquer mountains through the Los Alamos Mountaineers’ climbing school.

    The education in endurance begins March 23 and runs through May 2. Classes are held Saturdays in April and Monday nights from March 23 through April.

    Monday sessions are classroom lectures and demonstrations and the Saturday sessions will take students to various locations around White Rock to climb and practice various climbing skills.

  • Get a musical morsel of “The Sound of Music” before being served the whole enchilada starting Friday.

    The songs will include “The Sound of Music,” “(How do you Solve a Problem Like) Maria,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “No Way to Stop It” and “Something Good.”
