  • There’s a hidden treasure in Los Alamos and UNM-LA Library Director Dennis Davies-Wilson wants to help you find it. For a community like Los Alamos, there’s no greater treasure than access to information and the academic library at UNM-Los Alamos is open to the public and ready to serve any citizen of New Mexico, Davies-Wilson said.

  • “Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue?” Thirty-two artists who took on this challenge display art in the new exhibition at The Art Center at Fuller Lodge. Some, like Molly Hyde, approached the primaries by creating a separate selection for each color.

    Hyde features the same silver platter in each of her oil color studies, with “Yellow Apples,” “Red Peppers” and “Blue Bottles with Red Plum” capturing the subtle nuances lighting and reflection can add to the primary theme.

  • This week, we look at Asset #1, Support. According to the Search-Institute, “The more love, support, care and adult contacts a child has, the more likely he or she is to grow up healthy.” This same logic applies to adults, just for the record, so in essence we are community building, not just youth building.

    There are actually six categories we’ll look at over the next few weeks concerning support. If you can’t remember them all, just remember this, be nice and really give a darn about someone else.

  • Dr. Gary Storkan, a local chiropractor, spent seven-and-a-half years in battle. Now, he is announcing his victory.

    Storkan, who has lived and worked in Los Alamos for 20 years, came face to face with his enemy, Squamous Cell Carinoma, when he was diagnosed with the cancer, which was found in one of his tonsils, on May 31, 2001. The cancer had manifested in a bronchial cleft cyst in his neck.

    This diagnosis started a seven-and-a-half year ordeal to beat this foe.

  • Technology is bringing an algebra class at UNM-Los Alamos to the Internet. The system captures and records what happens in the classroom. Each class meeting is recorded using audio and video, transformed automatically into a webcast and posted automatically to a website.

    The new technology was purchased with funds from a Title V grant.

    The new Media Site Classroom Capture system by Sonic Foundry, along with the use of newly acquired SmartBoard technology, allows students to access the recordings at any time and as often as they wish.

  • Adam Izraelevitz, a senior at Los Alamos High School, has been chosen as the Rotary Club Student of the Month for February. He recognized Joy Handsberry as his honored teacher. Handsberry has greatly inspired and motivated him in his academic pursuits and advised and supported him throughout his high school career.

  • The annual Trinity-on-the-Hill Episcopal Church Shrove Tuesday pancake supper will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday in the old parish hall downstairs as the kitchen in the new parish hall is not yet completed.

    The House of Hope Women will again provide a full pancake supper, with butter and a choice of several homemade syrups to sweeten the cakes, as well as ham, fruit salad, orange juice, coffee and tea for a donation of $4 for children (10 and younger), $7 per adult, and $18 per family.

  • The New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company   (NMDT-PC) will fill the stage with magic once again next weekend when it performs director Susan Baker-Dillingham’s newest original ballet, “Cinderella,” Feb. 20–22. As a contribution to Los Alamos’ 60th anniversary celebration, NMDT-PC has invited Los Alamos’ own Living Treasures to attend the Sunday matinee as honored guests.

  • My first really clear memory of spending one-on-one time with my father was years ago when we were still living in Littleton, Colo. My father had just enrolled at Metropolitan State University in Denver to get his degree and in order to do research for an assignment he decided to go on a field trip. I went along for the ride.

    Together, we went to a hillside that used to be, millions and millions of years ago, the bottom of a lake. The evidence was found along the slope. Dinosaur footprints were pressed into the surface like celebrity footprints.

  • Between 15-20 young adults will be gathering at Pajarito Mountain Ski Area, but not for a day of recreation. Instead, these young people will be learning how to rescue skiers and snowboarders caught in an emergency situation.

    Each year, said Bill Somers, director of the ski patrol at the ski area, the Rocky Mountain Division of the National Ski Patrol hosts a young adult jamboree and this year, the local ski area will be the location of the event.
