    PEEC’s Nature Playtimes offer a chance for the youngest kids to get out and enjoy nature on the Pajarito Plateau.
    Each session offers time to explore outside, a craft or sensory activity and stories and songs. The program is free and open to all, with no registration required.

  • Burton brings Barnabas back from the dead in 'Dark Shadows'

    Barnabas Collins has risen once again and is stalking the town of Collinsport, Maine.
    Director Tim Burton and actor Johnny Depp have teamed up yet again to bring all that is creepy, dark and sinister to the silver screen. This time, their efforts have resulted in “Dark Shadows.”
    Based on the TV series that ran from 1966-1971, the movie revolves around Barnabas (Depp), an imprisoned vampire, forced to live in a coffin underground, as punishment for scorning the witchy Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green), with whom he had an affair two centuries prior to his imprisonment.

  • Search Intensifies for Missing Louisiana Woman
  • Spanish Colonial spring

    Imagine a place where technology does not exist. There are no smart phones, e-readers, computers, Internet connections or even telephones. It’s a place where people cultivated gardens to grow food to feed the family, raised livestock and depended on wood to heat their homes.
    Such a place may seem like a distant memory or something out of a story about the Wild West, but it does exist. It’s called El Rancho de las Golondrinas and it’s located on the outskirts of Santa Fe, tucked away from the interstate traffic and hustle and bustle of downtown. Located on 200 acres of farmland, the living history museum is dedicated to showing visitors how 18th and 19th century New Mexicans lived.

  • 76ers force Game 7 in Eastern semifinal

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The buzz at the start was for Allen Iverson’s ceremonial return.
    By the end, more than 20,000 fans were on their feet and going wild for Jrue Holiday, Elton Brand, Andre Iguodala and the rugged-and-determined play that kept the eighth-seeded Philadelphia 76ers alive for at least one more game.
    Yes, the Sixers are talking about Game 7 — and they’re taking this improbable postseason run back to Boston.
    Holiday scored 20 points, and Brand had 13 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Sixers to an 82-75 victory over the Celtics on Wednesday night that tied the Eastern Conference semifinals.

    Fresno tops Albuquerque, 10-7
    The Albuquerque Isotopes weathered a big inning by the Fresno Grizzlies in Tuesday’s game, but couldn’t pull off the same feat Wednesday.
    Fresno scored five runs in the top of the fifth inning to defeat Albuquerque 10-7 Wednesday night at Isotopes Park. The finale of their four-game series is tonight in Albuquerque.
    Fernando Nieve (1-2, 11.19 ERA) struggled in the fifth after replacing starting pitcher Mike Parisi. Nieve surrendered two home runs in the inning, including a grand slam by Fresno’s Roger Kieschnick after the Grizzlies loaded the bases on a single, an error by first baseman Jeff Baisley and a hit batsman.

  • LAGC hosts first big tourney of summer

    Los Alamos Golf Course is set to host its first major tournament of the summer this weekend.
    While it’s technically not summer yet, many consider Memorial Day the kick-off of the season. LAGC is no exception, as it hosts the Memorial Day Best Ball Tournament starting Saturday.
    The Memorial Day Best Ball tournament is one of four course-sponsored events that mark the course’s busiest time of the year.
    This summer is shaping up to be a busy one at LAGC, despite the fact it’s still working through design and funding issues with Los Alamos County. Money for course improvements, including the construction of a new clubhouse, has been approved by council, but those improvements may still be several years away.
