Today's Features

  • Sunday celebrates Beltane, or May Day, the third and last of the ancient Pagan fertility festivals. The first, Imbolc, is the first stirrings of the new season. The second, Ostara, celebrated at the spring equinox, recognizes spring has arrived. In many northern climates it is still too early to plant. Beltane would be the time when northern communities would be getting ready for their planting season.

  • Janet Bosarge of Los Alamos may not paint or photograph, but she does know the art of marketing. To help promote several local artists’ works and the work of visiting artists, Bosarge is hosting a fine arts party from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday at her home, located at 2326 Canyon Glen.

    Artists whose works will show at the party include sculptor John Fleming of Kirkland, Wash., photographer Harry Clifford of Los Alamos, painter Stede Barber of Los Alamos, painter Beth Ferguson of Abquu and Barb Ruble of Washington.

  • Los Alamos Little Theatre presents its final play this season, “The Importance of Being Earnest,” by Oscar Wilde. On its surface, the play is about two young men and their courtship with their respective girlfriends in the time of Queen Victoria.

  • Join Juanita “Winnie” Madland for another pedagogical pianist concert-lecture, at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at Fuller Lodge. The concert is a part of the free Los Alamos Arts Council Brown Bag series.

  • Every year, there’s a day where I glance around and suddenly realize how green and full the streetscapes look, trees flush with new leaves, colors so bright they belong in a detergent commercial.

  • In “Dear Frankie,” Director Shona Auerbach manages to find lots of heartfelt drama in a scenario that could have easily been written off as comedy. If you’re willing to suspend your disbelief just a little, you might even cry at the next presentation of Mesa Public Library’s Free Film Series, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the upstairs meeting room theater.

  • Noah Sandoval, the son of Peter and Cindy Sandoval, has been chosen as the Rotary Student of the Month for April. Sandoval is involved in many school and community organizations. At the high school, Sandoval is the senior class president of student council, which he has been involved in for three years. Similarly, he serves as the National Honor Societys vice president, and has been a member for the past two years.

  • Look up in the sky! Its a bird! Its a plane! No, its one of more than 20 rockets launched by members of the Pion Rocket Club during an early morning assembly at the school. Students at the school participated in the countdown for each launch, which featured rockets with names such as Big Bertha, Big Daddy and Screaming Eagle.

    There was also a three-stage rocket, a rocket that measured more than 5 feet and one less than 5 inches tall.

  • The Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos is offering the chance to sleep late, forget about washing dishes and still get breakfast for your entire family.

    The Kiwanis Club will hold a pancake breakfast from 7 - 11 a.m. Saturday at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.

  • Kokopelli, a fertility and agriculture deity who chases away winter and ushers in spring with his flute playing, traveled to Barranca Mesa Elementary School this week.

    The fourth-grade class worked since January to prepare for his arrival. In fact, the whole staff, from physical education instructors to social studies teachers, got in on the action. They helped students not only study this Southwestern Native American god, but write and illustrate books about the deity, create puppets for a puppet show, rehearse a song about Kokopelli, and learn a Kokopelli dance.
