  • LALO’S ‘Into the Woods,’ features Jack’s story

    Los Alamos Light Orchestra presents, “Into the Woods” a musical written by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine. It showcases half a dozen Grimms’ fairytales, to include the classic, “Jack and the Beanstalk,” which is intertwined with an original story about a childless baker and his wife.
    Once upon a time, in a far off kingdom, there lived a sad young lad whose name was Jack. Jack lived with his mother in a house that was rapidly falling apart and to Jack’s mother’s dismay, her son would rather daydream than help her with everyday tasks.

  • Shulman to conduct LASO’s Fall Concert

    The letters “MD” after a name can denote “medical doctor” or “musical director.”  In the case of Ivan Shulman, these letters denote both, what he describes as a natural combination.
    Shulman, the conductor of the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra’s Oct. 21  Fall Concert, grew up studying oboe under the tutelage of his father, oboist Harry Shulman, who played in the NBC Orchestra under Arturo Toscanini.
    In college he studied pre-med and went on to medical school at the University of Pittsburgh, with a general surgery residency in New York, Seattle and San Francisco.
    While keeping a busy medical career, Shulman always sought out opportunities to play in both community and professional groups.

  • NCRTD, Mortillaro agree to contract

    For three hours, the North Central Region Transit board sat behind closed doors, trying to hash out the details of executive director Tony Mortillaro's contract.

    When the dust settled Friday afternoon, the board approved a contract that would give Mortillaro a base salary of $100,000 per year and no vehicle allowance of $500 per month.

    "I am just glad now we can focus on moving forward," Mortillaro said.

  • Teen Center Study progresses

    Only about 20 people turned out, about half of them teens, to the first of three public meetings to discuss the Capital Improvements Program (CIP) Phase I Study for the Los Alamos Teen Center Facility Thursday evening.
    “Although turnout was low, there was a nice cross-section of the community there,” said Linda Daly, executive director of the YMCA.
    Council approved $150,000 for the Phase I study in December 2010. The Phase I study request argued that Los Alamos needs a teen center because of its isolation. Los Alamos lacks the places where teens usually “hang out,” such as shopping malls and bowling alleys.

  • Officials OK CMRR

    Editor’s Note: At press time Thursday final details remained in flux, however when the formal press statements were issued the story was updated on lamonitor.com. That story is being published today that also includes comments from the Los Alamos Site Office Manager.

    The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) issued a formal decision this week to push ahead with the Nuclear Facility portion of the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement project (CMRR-NF).
    The NNSA issued an amended Record of Decision (ROD) after consulting with members of Congress and other top officials in Washington.
