  • In the cat world, this week’s pet is known as a team player.
    Mando, a year-old Siamese with crème and seal point highlights, will be there when you start your next project or putting the finishing touches on your last one. He loves to know what is going on around him.
    According to the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter, where he currently resides, he also has some tricks up his furry sleeve. Apparently he rolls over on command – or he often does, because he’s still a cat.
    He checks all the positive boxes: good with kids, housebroken, and he’s indoor only. He doesn’t seem to mind dogs – perhaps he appreciates them for their entertainment value – and he likes other cats.
    His blue eyes are hypnotic and usually upon you. He’s adorable and attentive. Available for recruitment, so sign him up.
    Please contact the County Animal Shelter 662-8179 or email at Police-psa@lacnm.us.

  • EVERGREEN, Colo. – In “Blessings, My Child,” Ginger Payne equips parents and caregivers with a practical tool that builds a solid spiritual foundation with the children in their lives.
    Everyone raising a child understands the challenge of juggling workand family responsibilities.
    Then add to it the desire to raise children who will love and serve God for the rest of their lives. It can feel overwhelming.
    Many grown-ups want to communicate this message and build a spiritual relationship with their children, but lack confidence, feel ill-equipped, or don’t have the time to actually follow through on their intentions.
    What began with a handful of blessings, written by a retired schoolteacher, grew into a book that engages both children and adults.
    “Blessings, My Child” includes 101 biblically-based messages of love from God that nourish the soul of the young reader-and its corresponding Scripture, more than discussion and 101 full-color illustrations that engage the young reader and provide material for further discussion.
    All of this can be completed in as little as 10 minutes a day.
    “Writing Blessings, My Child wasn’t on the radar screen when I
    started,” Payne said. “I began by writing blessings for

  • JERUSALEM — Israel’s nationalist government may be unpopular with Western liberals and much of its domestic press corps, but it has found a close friend among the world’s evangelical Christians and their media outlets.
    The government this week is hosting a first-of-its-kind summit for Christian journalists, featuring softball questions, mutual admiration and a welcome respite for embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. His outreach to evangelical leaders reflects striking tactical parallels to his close ally and fellow media basher, President Donald Trump.
    About 130 journalists from some 30 countries are participating in the four-day summit, which ended Wednesday.
    The world’s largest broadcasters, including the Christian Broadcasting Network, Daystar, Trinity Broadcasting Network and God TV, were all represented.
    Nitzan Chen, the director of Israel’s Government Press Office, said he believed the summit was long overdue, and that planners chose the 50th anniversary celebrations of Israel’s capture of east Jerusalem as a fitting occasion for the conference.

  • Members of the Los Alamos Middle School Jazz Band performed for onlookers Tuesday night at Fuller Lodge.

  • The Sangre de Cristo Chorale will begin its 40th anniversary season this weekend in Santa Fe and Los Alamos with “Autumn Legacy.”
    The first performance will be Saturday at the First Presbyterian Church in Santa Fe, followed by a Sunday performance at the United Church of Los Alamos. Both performances will begin at 4 p.m.
    The centerpiece of the concerts will be four pieces honoring the legacy of Monteverdi on the 450th anniversary of his birth. It will also feature works by Fauré, Stephen Paulus and Eric Eric Whitacre. There will also be Chorale premieres and other favorites that will create an inspiring autumn afternoon.
    Dr. Bradley Ellingboe will lead the concerts as the guest conductor, and Nate Salazar will be his accompanist.
    Tickets are $20 in advance, or $25 at the door. Attendees under 18 years old get in for free both days. Tickets can be ordered online at sdcchorale.org.

  • Los Alamos Little Theater will hold auditions for the January 2018 production, “God of Carnage” at the Performing Arts Center, 1670 Nectar St., at 2 p.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. Monday.
    “God of Carnage “ by Yasmina Reza won the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play.
    In this dark comedy a playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter.
    At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.  Characters will be two men and two women.
    The play will be directed by Paul Lewis and produced by John Gustafson.
    Actors should prepare a short two- to three-minute monologue of their choosing, or select one of the suggested monologues at lalt.org.  
    Memorization is not necessary, but the actor must be sufficiently familiar with the monologue to present a dramatic interpretation.
    Copies of the script and suggested monologues are available for two day checkout at the Mesa Public Library (reference desk). 

  • ALAMOGORDO (AP) — A new craze has hit Alamogordo, one that involves residents of all ages painting and hiding rocks throughout the community.
    “My sister lives in Illinois and they do the rock thing there, she was telling me about it. I thought it would be neat for kids here because there’s not a lot for kids to do around here,” said Patricia Glore, founder of the Alamo Rocks Facebook page. “So we painted rocks for two weeks, hid about 50 of them and then I started the page.”
    As residents found the hidden rocks, they also found instructions painted to the back of the rocks directing them to the Alamo Rocks page. Currently, the group has over 2,300 members.
    “This is something I do with my great grandkids,” Glore said. “(My great grandson) found his first rock by himself yesterday and he was so excited. This gives them something to do outside of the house, so they’re not stuck indoors playing on tablets and watching TV.”
    Organizations such as the Alamogordo Public Library and Alamo Jump have jumped onboard with the craze, hosting rock painting parties for the community.

  • The Los Alamos Big Band will host a Fall Concert and Dance from 7-9 p.m. Oct. 27 at Fuller Lodge.
    The Los Alamos Big Band is a 16-instrument, 1940s, Glenn Miller-style swing band that plays for public events, weddings, conventions, fund raisers, and more. The band will be playing favorites such as “In The Mood,” “String of Pearls,” “Sing, Sing, Sing,” “New York, New York,” and even “Clarinet Polka.”
    The band also features two well-known vocalists, Elisa Enriquez and Rene LeClaire, who will perform famous tunes such as “Chicago,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Lady is a Tramp,” and “Moonglow.”
    The band has been playing at dances throughout Northern New Mexico since 1984 under the direction of Jan McDonald, who was for many years the band director at Los Alamos High School. Admission is free; donations are welcome.
