  • In one image, the sunlight glares off the side of a Coke bottle, creating a blinding oblong star over the famous red label. In another, a narrow river suddenly plummets into an avalanche of white rapids. Both objects look completely believable, solid and without-a-doubt three-dimensional.

    Never mind that the bottle is 5-feet tall, or that instead rushing down the side of the side of a mountain, the river and its attendant waterfall crash down the paved un-magnificent,  flat sidewalk.

  • On Sept. 18, the two-day Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah begins. Rosh Hashanah is Hebrew for “head of the year” and this day begins the Jewish year 5770.

    The holiday celebrates the creation of mankind and features festive meals and New Year good wishes. It also begins a 10-day period of personal reassessment and atonement.

  • The opportunity to perform in the White Rock’s 60th anniversary party is an invitation the local band, The Laminators, are happy to accept.

    The band, which includes Mark Clay on drums, Louie Jalbert on lead guitar, Dave Martin on rhythm guitar and Bob Manzanares on bass guitar, will perform a medley of music at 5 p.m. Sunday in White Rock’s Rover Park.

    Jalbert said the band performs 50s, 60s classic jazz, swing, rock n’ roll, country and occasionally throw in one or two variations on a standard.

  • When I was about 8 years old, I got it into my head that I would run away from home. At that particular time my family and I were living in a neighborhood in Knoxville, Tenn., that still had vacant lots and new construction. I imagined myself taking shelter in the wooden skeleton of one of those new houses.

    I read books about runaways including “My Side of the Mountain” and I figured if those young children could make a successful go of it then I could, too. However, I failed miserably. I didn’t even make it out the door.

  • Even if you haven’t looked at a still life in recent memory, it’s time to consider this art form again at the exhibition “Still Life Revisited.”

    The Art Center at Fuller Lodge will host an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. Friday and the public is invited to come and meet many of the artists who have offered their interpretations of the theme.

  • Los Alamos has always nurtured the arts and on Friday, its artistry will be in full bloom. Village Arts, Mesa Public Library, Los Alamos Historical Museum and the Art Center at Fuller Lodge will all be bursting with color, creativity and innovation during the Arts Crawl from 4-8 p.m.

    The timing for this event is perfect since Los Alamos has designated September as Arts and Culture Month.

  • The Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation is accepting donations of gently used wind instruments for use by students in the LAPS music programs grades five through 12.

     It is important that the instruments be in working order.

    Instruments requiring minor repair will also be accepted because the foundation does have the means to repair them.

    Donations can be dropped off at the Los Alamos Public Schools district office, 751 Trinity Drive, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. through Friday as well as Sept. 14-18.

  • Sam Shepard’s play “Fool for Love” kicks off the Los Alamos Little Theatre’s 2009-2010 theatrical season, which has been dedicated to the loving memory of John Mench, a founding member of LALT who passed away recently.

    LALT veteran Corey New directs “Fool for Love,” while former LALT president Jennifer Wadsack produces it.  

    Although “Fool for Love” is set contemporarily on the edge of the Mojave Desert, it plays more like a Greek tragedy come to life out of hazy remnants from the Wild West.
