  • On Saturday, a race will be held but this is no typical competition.

    Onlookers should expect to see more than just humans hoofing it down the road. Their dogs will accompany them.  

    During the annual Dog Jog event, Dogs and their human companions will gather at Chamisa Elementary School to run the 3.1-mile course or walk the 2-mile course.

    Race check-in and T-shirt and informational packet pick-up time will be from 8-8:40 a.m. Saturday at Chamisa Elementary School. Entries are encouraged even without a dog.

  • It’s completely possible to exist for others before we even exist for ourselves.

    In a way, this is obvious. For instance, my mother and grandmother have memories of me as an infant, memories of which I am a major part but yet I can’t remember at all.

    My grandma, several times, has recalled the first time she held me, and how I looked right into her eyes “as though (I) were thinking.” In contrast, one of my mom’s favorite stories involves a time I threw up in her mouth.

  • Editor’s note: The following is part of a series to promote the Los Alamos Little Theater’s next production, “The Spitfire Grill.” The interview, writer and  mugshot are fictitious. Brenna Moore wrote the story. The photo is by Larry Gibbons. The Spitfire Grill will be performed at 7:30 p.m. May 7, 8, 14, 15, 21 and 22 as well as at 2 p.m. May 9 and 16 at LALT.

  • Who doesn’t love a great conversation? Pair it with a good meal and you have the fixings for a successful event. What luck then that the LAPS Foundation is hosting a fundraiser called Great Conversations.

    Those who have a love for socializing or possess a gift for the gab are invited to the event, which will be held from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Sunday at Central Avenue Grill.   

    The event features 15 speakers who will each address a different topic. Participants can choose a topic they are interested in and register for a seat at the speakers’ table.

  • The first week of May is commonly a time to think about Mother’s Day, Nurse’s Day and Teacher and Staff Appreciation week.

    The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at Chamisa Elementary School is helping people get ahead of the game by offering a shopping extravaganza in conjunction with the Dog Jog at Chamisa on Saturday.

    The annual spring arts and crafts fair will take place from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the school.

  • Seven Los Alamos High School Hilltalkers earned the chance to go to a competition that Head Coach Noel Trujillo described as the World Series of debating.

    After taking first and second places at the New Mexico District Tournament on March 25, 26 and 27 at Albuquerque Academy, Gannon Nelson, Ryan Marcus, Seth Jennings, Kathy Lin, Vickie Wang, Mei Lui and Sky Korber qualified to attend the National Forensic National Tournament.

  • Next Sunday, Mary Brooks, William “Bill” Deal, Jr. and Roy N. Hopwood will be recognized and honored as the newest members of Living Treasures of Los Alamos (LTLA).  The ceremony and reception, sponsored by Los Alamos National Bank, will begin at 2 p.m. at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.  The public is invited to attend.

  • Ever thought words like smothered breakfast burrito, Jeanie Southwest biscuits and gravy or huevos rancheros could be spotlighted in a story, or that a menu could inspire a literary endeavor? The Los Alamos Writers Group is proposing this challenge to the young people in the community.

    The writers group, along with Daylight Delights, is calling all young writers to take part in a writing contest.

  • When Grace Vineyard was founded in 1991, the church met in various locations throughout the community.

    Finally, the church staff settled on Chamisa Elementary School in 1994. They figured it would only be a few years before a permanent location was found.

    However, it took a little longer than expected. Rev. Jack Sullivan said different locations were determined to be either too small or too expensive. Fifteen years later, the church along with the office that was located next to the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division, relocated to 1183 Diamond Drive, Suite C.

  • Start fresh seems to be the motto of the organization formerly known as the Art Center at Fuller Lodge  – it will now be known as  the Fuller Lodge Art Center.

    Walking into the building, the evidence of wiping  the slate clean is everywhere. The honey-colored wood floors sparkle after being refinished by county employees, there’s a faint smell of fresh paint that was applied to the walls and the entire building is bare and ready for a new beginning.
