  • Hail andCongratulations!Los Alamos Little Theater is a marvelous, long-lasting organization. “Senior” certainly isn’t a descriptive word; “Indestructible” might be.Many years ago, I was an active member, acting and directing. Now I just attend every production.From the recent program, it seems most of the participants are new to me (I’ve lost my memory). But some I remember with great pleasure and fondness. They are still going strong.

Kraft Foods has a wonderful array of recipes online. There is even a “Thanksgiving On The Net” site.

  • A Professional Music Teachers of New Mexico Teacher of the Year Award is given to instructors who have made a difference in their students’ lives, contributed to the advancement of music in their community and is an example of a professional music educator. Teacher of the Year awards are not easy to receive, however, local music teacher Charlene Cox-Clifton has two. She earned her first Teacher of the Year award in Kansas in 1985-1986. The second one was awarded to Cox-Clifton in November during the Professional Music Teacher of New Mexico conference.

  • In the past, no real recycling program existed at Barranca Mesa Elementary School. This all changed, however, when the students took control of the recycling operations. The Spirit Club, which currently includes fourth-graders, has not only taken control of recycling at the school but made it a success. Twenty-five gallons of materials were recycled a week last year at the elementary school; this year, the load increased to more than 200 gallons a week.

  • New Mexico sometimes seems to suffer from low esteem. “In Mexico, we’re accustomed to not having a high opinion of ourselves or of our state,” said New Mexico journalist Sherry Robinson.

  • Staff and volunteers at Los Alamos Visiting Nurses are taking advantage of November, National Hospice Month, to educate the community about hospice. Hospice, said executive director of Visiting Nurses Sarah Rochester, is more of a philosophy than a place and its about caring and sharing. Additionally, she said, it is more about living than dying. Hospice, Rochester said, promotes living to the last moment of your life and Visiting Nurses personnel will spread this message throughout the community during this month. Los Alamos Visiting Nurses has been operating for 34 years.

  • The Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization Community Health Council is offering a sweet deal, feast on chocolate while supporting good causes. The third annual Festival of Chocolate will be held from 7-9 p.m. Saturday at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
