  • What it means to be spiritual and not religious

    “I hear some people say they are ‘spiritual’ but not ‘religious.’  What do they mean?”— Judy

     

    The place to start is to ask your friends what they mean by this statement. Absent their response here, we can make a few general observations.

    Some individuals who say this often are expressing their rejection of “institutional” religion.  They may have been burned by an unpleasant “church” experience or perhaps simply consider themselves above the mundane, human-shaped thing which often passes for “church” in our day.  

    Their critique is not entirely unwarranted — there is plenty of room for improvement if not radical change in the way “church” often appears in our culture.

  • Soccer team falls in two overtimes

    Another second half comeback attempt against a strong opponent by the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team didn’t turn out as well in the Albuquerque Academy tournament as it did in the Hilltoppers’ home tournament Thursday.

    The Hilltoppers netted two goals in the second half to tie their game up with the Sandia Prep Sundevils Thursday afternoon at Academy, but the Sundevils, one of the top small schools in the state, scored the game winner in sudden death to take a 4-3 victory.

    Sandia Prep’s Preston Hauser tallied a pair of goals against Los Alamos (5-2) and John Twohig stopped eight shots as the Sundevils advanced to today’s semifinal round of the tournament.

  • LA girls soccer stuns Las Cruces

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team’s seniors were challenged to respond following a disappointing showing last weekend.

    On Thursday, they did.

    The Hilltoppers came up big against an elite opponent Thursday in the first round of the Albuquerque Academy Invitational Tournament. The Hilltoppers downed the Las Cruces Bulldawgs to advance to today’s tournament semifinal round, 3-1.

    Saturday, Los Alamos was trounced in all phases of the game, taking a big 4-0 loss against St. Pius X. A win in that game might have established Los Alamos as the team to beat in Class 4A this season, but head coach Jiri Kubicek said the effort wasn’t there.

  • Legion riders host fundraiser


    The American Legion Riders Chapter 19, Post 90 of Los Alamos, are having a fundraising ride for Jesse Miller, a Los Alamos boy with leukemia. Miller was diagnosed with leukemia in August 2011 and has done well with his treatments. 

    He is now in his last phase of treatment — the maintenance phase, which will last two years. His mother Mariah is a single mom, so the American Legion Riders will raise funds to help her.
