Today's Features

  • Five boys from Barranca Cub Scout Pack 229 attended Saturday’s basketball game between the Albuquerque Thunderbirds and the Utah Flash at Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque. Each scout received a free ticket as a reward for selling more than $100 worth of popcorn this past fall.

  • The Chinese New Year, which lands on Feb. 14 this year, is a time for family. For people like Joshua Wu, whose family lives apart, the New Year is a time for them to get together and celebrate. “It’s a fun thing,” he said.

    Wu added, that cleerbating in China and in the U.S. are different.

    “China goes about it differently … what we usually do is families … come as a whole group. It’s a get-together.”

  • This year, Relay for Life is calling for more celebrations. Since the event benefits the American Cancer Society, a nation-wide volunteer health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer and prolonging life, this in turn means more birthdays, holidays and special occasions to recognize.

  • Two local authors, Inez Ross and Theresa Sanchez Cornwell, will participate in a book signing from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday at Otowi Station Science Museum and Bookstore.

    Sanchez Cornwell will sign her debut book of poetry, “Sometimes Blue Rain Falls in my Techinicolor World” while Ross will promote her book, “Sotherton Abbey,” a novel that places Jane Austin’s classic story in Santa Fe.

    Sanchez Cornwell said her book is about life, death and fantasy.

  • Our asset for this week is number seven, community values youth. For those of you who don’t know, the reason I started this work was actually because of this asset. At the time, our data showed that only 15 percent of students in the community felt valued.

  • Los Alamos Middle School students and staff will come together next week to honor the memory of Logan Collins.

    Collins, a seventh-grade student who died earlier in the school year, was a boy who loved basketball.

    In memory of Collins and his love for the game, his family will be honored at the team’s last home game on Monday.

    The Los Alamos Middle School Hawks will take on West Las Vegas and the community is invited to show their support for the team and the Collins family at a 3:30 p.m. presentation.

  • J.Robert Oppenheimer’s name is remembered throughout the world but it seems plausible that nowhere is his name recognized with such admiration as it is in Los Alamos.

    Several projects are underway to continue celebrating the scientific director of the Manhattan project.

    At 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church in Los Alamos, theoretical physicist and former Los Alamos National Laboratory employee Fred Ribe will give a talk about Oppenheimer’s 1954 security clearance hearing.

  • What make one particular night different from all others? What makes it big?

    Stanley Tucci and Campbell Scott’s “Big Night” (1996) answers that question with a side of risotto.

    Warning: Do not watch this movie if you are hungry, especially if you are tempted by Olive Garden commercials. If you do watch it, prepare yourself for scene after scene of fresh noodles, tomatoes, Romano cheese, salami and meatballs.

  • My puppy is sleeping beside me on the couch. She’s breathing evenly, her whole long, spotted torso rising and sinking back into the cushions with a little flutter. When I place my hand over her chest, I realize the flutter is her heart beating.

    My older dog is asleep on the floor about 4 feet away. He breathes loudly, his nose a tiny black amphitheater. Unlike the puppy, he’s thick with fur. He’s a living pillow, his heart deep in his downy body.

  • Los Alamos Family YMCA has taken the community to Paris, paradise and the tropics. This year, the community can travel with the organization to Las Vegas.

    The theme for this year’s Red and Black Ball is “Viva Las Vegas.”

    This is not just a short jaunt to Sin City, it is a kick off to the YMCA’s Strong Kids Annual Support Campaign.

    The event begins at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the Central Avenue Grill. A dinner will be served and a live and silent auction will be held.
