  • Fashion Maven: Don’t be afraid to show off your socks

    Often overlooked in fashion, socks hide in dressers, are crammed in corners of messy rooms and often pairs of them get separated.

    Socks can be made into so much more though, and can look insanely cute with outfits for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
    Before rattling off all of the wonderful fashions that can be created with a lovely pair of socks, it is necessary to establish how not to wear socks.
    You know, just to get everyone on the right track. As a general rule, socks should not be worn with flat sandals, especially Birkenstocks.

  • Los Alamos students March for Life

    Despite the rain and cold temperatures, hundreds of thousands of people flooded the streets of Washington, D.C. Jan. 23 for the 39th Annual “March for Life” walk.
    Each year, Pro-life rallies are held in cities throughout the United States on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion in the United States on Jan. 22, 1974.
    The March for Life participants’ goal is to have that decision overturned by the court.
    Fourteen Los Alamos high school students and chaperons attended this year’s walk.
