    They slept in the aisles and celebrated Mass in the restaurant car.

    Eight hundred Poles boarded a special train Friday night for a 26-hour trip across Europe, bound for Rome and the beatification of the late Pope John Paul II. They were joining tens of thousands of Poles who are massing in Rome for Sunday's beatification, a major celebration for a nation overjoyed at seeing the Polish-born pontiff moved closer to sainthood.

    By Saturday afternoon, the pilgrim train was whizzing past Italian vineyards and church belltowers, after having crossed through Poland, the Czech Republic and Austria.

    “Earth Day made me wonder what the Bible says about caring for the Earth? —Sonya

    The Bible opens with a powerful portrayal of a God who is highly invested in the Earth and all that inhabits it. The “Creation Story” is a beautiful paean to the Creator, who brought something out of nothing and who is quite intentional in the way that something works. Indeed, the narrative clearly indicates that God really likes His handiwork (Gen. 1:10, passim)!

  • National Day of Prayer slated for Thursday

    All persons of faith are invited to attend the National Day of Prayer May 5 at Crossroads Bible Church. The day will begin with prelude patriotic worship music from 11:30 a.m.-noon, with the program from noon-1 p.m.
    Several local clergy and laypeople will lead the prayers. Join the gathering during the lunch hour and get an “I prayed” sticker. Gloria Streit will lead the worship music and Pastor Doug Partin will lead the prayer program.
    “Americans have forgotten what made this country great over the last two centuries. But we can change that. Prayer not only changes things, prayer changes people,” said honorary chairman of the National Day of Prayer for 2011 Joni Earekson Tada.

  • Radioactive waste hearing

    Arnold Edelman, the Environmental Impact Statement Document Manager, makes a presentation Thursday night, concerning the disposal of Greater-Than-Class C (GTCC) low-level radioactive waste.

  • Conductor to give final performance today

    When conductor Michael Gyurik lifts his baton today to lead the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra in its spring concert, he should feel pride in the 60-piece orchestra’s past 12 years under his direction.
    The concert will mark his last performance as LASO’s conductor, however, he will remain an active participant in the Los Alamos music scene, continuing as orchestra director for the Los Alamos Public Schools and serving in an advisory position on the LASO board.
    Gyurik said he will miss directing LASO, the group is “like a caring family,” and has always loved conducting it. He said the most satisfying performance was the fall concert in October at the Crossroads Bible Church.

  • Britain celebrates monarchy as Kate, William wed 


    LONDON — With a smile that lit up TV screens around the world, Kate Middleton married Prince William in a union that promised to revitalize the British monarchy. A million people roared their approval as the royal couple then paraded through London in an open carriage.
    Even knowing that an immense television audience was turning in to watch, the couple managed, at times, to appear in their own private world Friday, both at Westminster Abbey and on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
    William whispered to Kate, who radiated contentment and joy, as they pledged their lives to one another at the church with the simple words “I will.”

  • Police to collect prescription drugs

    Los Alamos police are joining the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) second National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. The event is set up to allow the general public an opportunity to deposit their expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs and also prevent pill abuse and theft.

    In Los Alamos, residents can drop off their pills from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the east parking lot of Los Alamos Medical Center. Det. Paige Early and Cpl. Brian Schamber will be at the police booth to receive the unwanted pills. They will ensure that the pills are properly disposed of rather than entering the groundwater from being washed down sinks and flushed down toilets.
