Today's Features

  • If anyone wondered what Los Alamos High School art classeshave been up to all year, they just had to take a look around the classroom.

    A semester’s worth of work covered the walls, filled the display cases and decorated tables. Through a school gallery show, which ended Thursday, students’ artwork and creativity were put on display for LAHS and the community.

    “I think the work is really fantastic,” art teacher Dana Salmond said. “They’re so talented ee every student has some beautiful work.”

  • Jeremy Mayne and Mickey Jones, also known as the New Mexico Guitar Duo, will be traveling up the Hill to perform in the Guitars and Gateaux concert at 7 p.m. today at Fuller Lodge.

    They are both seasoned pros within the concert series. Maynes has performed a solo concert in the past; Jones brought the Albuquerque Honors Guitar Quartet to the series and Maynes and Jones concluded the series last year.

  • Fourteen climbers conquered their fears and physical challenges, and as a result, are able to scale mountains, literally.

    The students enrolled in the Los Alamos Mountaineers climbing school, which kicked off March 25, put their skills to the test with a graduation climb at Tres Piedras May 3.

    Graduate climbers practiced traditional climbing, and spent from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. that day “climbing like maniacs,” instructor Kai Davis said.

  • Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., is a man of unusual qualities. Not only is he a genius winning numerous prestigious awards in technology, as well as a very rich man because of his designs at a weapons manufacturing firm, but he is also cocky, handsome and has a way with women that would make even Casanova jealous.

  • Los Alamos is in for an “ultra-funky, organic, electronic experiment.”

    Some listeners will think of Pink Floyd or Air. Others, of Herbie Hancock. Others, of contemporary electronica bands like Sigur Ros or The Beta Band.

    The Frequency, however, have a style all their own.

    On its Myspace page, the Los Angeles-based group describes its sound as “a reflection of things old and new,” and its inspiration as coming from “a love of Moogs, the sound of a real Fender Rhodes piano and vintage Fender amps.”

  • Making

    memories

    We want to thank all those friends who came to George’s retirement celebration at Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church.

    It was a wonderful turn out and it gave us an incomparable memory to treasure. You have been most generous in your outpouring of cards, gifts and comments to George, and we are most grateful.

    This is a community we love and the people here are indeed a blessing in our lives.

    Thank you, each one.

    Love,

    Joann and George Anderson

    Celebrating 20 years

  • Of all my memories of Shanghai, I most clearly recall sitting on the bus. Specifically, I remember looking out at miles of e hi-rises, hundreds of them, bland, uniform, claustrophobic as gravel, but overwhelmingly big, filling up both ground and sky.

  • The third grade GATE program at Aspen Elementary School collected 2,300 books for the Checkerboard Area Health System waiting rooms.

    Used children’s books in good condition were needed to make the waiting rooms more patient friendly, and the Checkerboard Area Health System worked to comply with the CAHS Community Guidance Council’s request for books.

    Several other donors contributed to the book drive. Jemez Valley Medical Clinic and the Cuba Health Center received multiple donations of children’s books.

  • Light the candles! The Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos is 60 years old this year.

    The celebration is low key, but don’t be surprised if you hear announcements about the anniversary at local pancake breakfasts and the 2008 fireworks show.

  • Join other children from age 3 years old to those entering third grade in fall 2008 for a fun-filled week of scientific adventure, “Discovering Jesus’ Miraculous Power” at Vacation Bible School.
