  • Los Alamos Piecemakers Guild unveiled bed quilts, wall hangings and lap quilts at the quilt show, which opened Friday and continued through Saturday at the First Baptist Church. In addition to a wide variety of colorful quilts, there were demonstrations, fabric and other supplies for sale and a raffle for the guild’s donation quilt, “Stars of Enchantment.”

  • In October, Mesa Public Library will present “Museum Conservation: The Delicate Art Behind the Scenes,” an exhibit of photographs by New Mexico Highlands University Media Arts student Rachel Montoya.

    The exhibit focuses on the art and science of repairing and preserving museum collection objects performed by the Museum of New Mexico Conservation Department.

  • Temperatures will rise at 8 p.m. Thursday after the LAHS volleyball game as the annual bonfire activities get underway at Sullivan Field.

    Keanna Cohen and the Los Alamos Youth Leadership SPK team have met for weeks to get ready for the bonfire and hope community youth will turn out for the event.

    “Homecoming week is the most extravagant week of the year and it’s important for students to feel included and support our football team,” Cohen said.

  • Years ago, June Warren created festive holiday decorations for  a Santa Fe Opera Guild fundraiser.  “I just made these for the opera guild … and they really sold,” she said.

    Recently, Warren was looking through boxes and discovered a few leftover decorations. Looking at the smiling scarecrows and the silk fall colored leaves, Warren came up with an idea.

    So she whipped out her glue gun and made some more decorative pieces for Halloween.

  • It used to just be me and Zooker.

    Well before I graduated college, married, divorced and remarried. Before I took a single ballet lesson. Before I began writing for newspapers. Before everything happened, I had Zooker. Before that, I was a waitress.

    I was a terrible waitress. My tips didn’t fold; they jangled. I spent too long talking about books with the customers I liked and not enough time remembering who needed a refill on his iced tea.

  • It is the first time the new owners of Sage Cottage signed up for Smith’s Food and Drug Earn and Learn program, and it ended up being a very rewarding decision.  

    The Montessori School received $359.08. “It was nice,” said Cheri Post, executive director of Sage Cottage. “It was a nice chunk of money. Every little bit helps.”

    Post said this year’s money will go toward the school’s general operation fund.

  • Whether you prefer moussaka, deep-fried vegetables or midnight eggs, you can soon find your fix at – where else – the library.  

    This season’s Free Film Series, geared entirely for the gourmand, the glutton and the secret gorger. Each of this winter’s half-dozen films offers not only a good story, memorable dialogue, high drama and/or wild comedy, but also something tasty, tangy, sweet and luscious.

    And best of all, celluloid is virtually calorie-free.

    The cinematic six-course meal begins with not an appetizer, but a wedding.

  • To celebrate the authors of Los Alamos, Otowi Station Bookstore and Science Museum Shop announces the inaugural Los Alamos AuthorFest from 4-7:30 p.m. Friday at Otowi Station. Local authors will sign their books and discuss their work with readers.

    Authors of children’s books will sign books after school from 4-5:30 p.m., and authors of books for young adults and adults will sign them from 5:30-7 p.m.

    With a history degree from Smith College, Nancy Bartlit taught young Japanese women and scientists in Japan.

  • The White Rock Baptist Church has always been a little different. “We hold to the central tenets of the Christian faith,” Rev. Chuck McCullough said, “but we have never been real traditional ‘Baptist.’ We have been on this spot, in this town, since 1969, for reasons that transcend denomination and tradition.”  

    Forty years later this church that resists the typical cookie cutter image is still going strong.

    This consistent, long-term presence calls for a celebration.

  • Local pianist Frances Meier included many well-known composers in her program for the upcoming Brown Bag concert, which will be held at 12:30 p.m. Oct. 7 at Fuller Lodge. Rachmaninoff, Chopin and Debussy may be familiar to many members of the audience and some may even know Mompoa and Philip Aaberg.

    In addition to these big-named composers, Meier has included a composer who resides a little closer to home. Herself.
