  • LAGC personnel tackling new initiative to re-energize game

    Steve Wickliffe has plenty of items on his plate right now.
    Along with all the usual summer happenings at Los Alamos Golf Course, Wickliffe also has the extra jobs of heading for meetings with Los Alamos County officials, preparing for the upcoming improvements at the course and making sure the course is in the best condition it can be.
    On top of that, there is a new nationwide golf initiative that LAGC has adopted in order to boost participation numbers.
    “It’s been a challenge,” said Wickliffe, LAGC’s manager. “At the same time, we know at the facility, Donnie (Torres), Mike (Phillips) and myself, the county recreation staff, we have to be proactive. That’s what we’re trying to do.”

  • Olympic fashion is all about the money

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Olympians should have figured out one thing by now: What they can or cannot wear at the London Games has very little to do with their fashion, marketing sense or patriotism, and a whole lot to do with rules, regulations and, of course, money.
    The overseers of the Olympics are protective of their brand and rings — considered one of the most recognizable logos in sports — and what the athletes wear when they’re competing has been tightly regulated, much to the chagrin of some of the games’ stars.
    Take Michael Phelps, for example. He recently tweeted his dismay at no longer being allowed to wear a swimming cap bearing miniature American flags on the front and back.

  • Thank You 07-22-12

    This summer I had an experience that made me appreciate my community. I am a teenager that lives in White Rock.
    Our one-year-old Malti-Poo has never been away from our family before, so when we went on a two-week vacation, we picked a family similar to ours, where she would receive lots of love and attention.  
    After five days into our vacation, we got a call that one of the kids got a rash, possibly from the dog. She was then taken to an alternative family that has a dog of its own.  
    Our puppy did not handle that change well, so when the opportunity came, she took the chance to escape from the unfamiliar people’s yard.

  • Grant helps anime-inspired artist

    After what seems to be a busy summer, Los Alamos High School senior Leia Roach, of Mush Crafts is getting down to business.
    The anime-inspired artist has built a business around her SPARK, creating jewelry and plush animals, made specifically for her clients.  
    “Last year, I started making plushes with my friend and we thought people would enjoy them,” Roach said.
    The idea drove her to etsy.com/shop/.mushcrafts, which allows her to sell to online shoppers, looking for a gift.
    Mush Crafts jewelry starts out as a hand-drawn piece of art. Roach is happy to take suggestions from customers and create custom orders, during the creative process.
