Today's Features

  • It’s evolved since it was first created, not to mention traveled. It can be spotted anywhere from Main Street to the moon. Although it’s been torn, stained and burned, it has never ceased to exist.  

    With these qualities, the American flag is much like the country it represents so on Sunday the community is invited to join the Elks Lodge No. 2083 at 1 p.m. Sunday at Ashley Pond to celebrate Flag Day.  

  • Pixar/Disney is cunning. I watch  previews for the movies the company produces and never really have a clear idea about the movie. Yet, the short blips always wet my appetite to watch their movies.

    So when I watched a preview for “Up,” which showed a house with thousands of party balloons floating through the air and an old man sitting on the porch saying “Howdy,” I was ready to immediately head to the theater.

  • I remember when my parents first brought her home 14 years ago. My sister and I drove up to the driveway one day and she and our mom were sitting out in the front yard.

    It was kind of a surprise. I didn’t even know they were considering getting another one.

    There had been a brief period of time since we said our final goodbyes to our last dog, a black Labrador Retriever named Scituate and it was eerie without him around. It was a little too quiet, a little emptier in the house. So I could understand why my parents wanted another dog.

  • Los Alamos is cooking up something completely different Saturday. It is spiced with flavors from around the world and served with the noblest of intentions.

    Taste of Los Alamos, an international food festival, will be held from 2-5 p.m. Saturday at Fuller Lodge. The event is a fundraiser for this year’s  local Relay for Life.

    While several Los Alamos residents with nationalities outside of the U.S. are participating in the event, the program   is partnering with English as a Second Language Professor Cindy Eaton’s students at UNM-LA.  

  • Imagine – or remember – what it was like growing up in Los Alamos in the 1940s and ‘50s. Well-armed guards kept the gates to the so-called Atomic City. Visitors needed special passes. Their vehicles were routinely searched.

  • The Los Alamos County Recreation Division is accepting boat team registrations for its first-ever Cardboard Canoe Regatta, which will be held from 1-5 p.m. June 20 at the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center.

  • Saturday, the downtown area will feature a few unusual sights – a sand pile, a pit of soapy foam, a few robots and some shiny cars.

    All these unique additions come courtesy of the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce’s Chamberfest.

    From 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, the conventional routine will be put on hold for some fun the whole community can enjoy.

    Actually, the fun begins at 5 p.m. with  the Chamber’s banquet Friday at Central Avenue Grill.

  • Once again the community is welcomed to attend a free concert showcasing the Deborah Beene Music Scholarship winners, past and present.

    This year’s concert is the largest ever, with seven past award winners joining this year’s four winners.

    The annual Deborah Beene Award Winners Concert will be at 2 p.m. June 14 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.

    Ranging from a freshman to graduating seniors, the talent in this year’s concert is hard to beat.

  • “If music be the food of love, play on.” So starts Shakespeare’s play, “Twelfth Night.”

    This brings to mind the beginning of the 52nd season of the Santa Fe Opera. For those who don’t know or have forgotten some of the rich, interesting history of the SFO, here are some facts.

  • With school over and summer vacation starting up, many local churches are offering an opportunity to continue children’s education.

    Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church and Los Alamos Church of Christ will help expand youngsters’ spiritual knowledge through Vacation Bible Schools.
