  • Review: 'Cowboy Poet' lassoes a let down

    Sometimes we try really hard to like things and no matter how hard we try, it just doesn’t work.
    Let’s just preface by saying that sometimes if you have to try to like something, then something must be wrong.
    Such was the case with the musical “Cowboy Poet.”
    It would be easy enough to blame the nasty weather outside or maybe it was the length of the show (two-and-a-half hours). Whatever the reason, it seemed as though many in the audience couldn’t help but wonder when the Los Alamos Little Theatre production would end.

  • Artists explore what it means to be 'Naked'

    Abandon everything that comes to mind when the word “naked” is spoken and try to see things in a different light without blushing or giggling like a teenager.
    The staff at the Fuller Lodge Art Center is hoping that patrons will do just that, as it presents its newest exhibit, “Naked,” opening with a reception from 5-7 p.m. Friday. More than 50 artists will share their interpretations of what it means to be naked.
    The range of work on display is as varied as the artists. From sketches and photographs of nudes, to ceramic and bronze interpretations of the female body, to photographs of stingrays and trees, each individual shares their vision.

  • LA baby remains in stable condition in ICU at ABQ hospital

    According to Los Alamos Police Captain Randy Foster, the 11-week-old baby boy, who sustained a variety of injuries after being allegedly dropped by a 19-year-old Los Alamos man, remains in stable condition in the intensive care unit of UNM Hospital in Albuquerque Friday.

    Foster said doctors still are trying to determine the extent of injuries.

    Tyrell Abney, 19, was arrested and charged  Wednesday with child abuse resulting in great bodily harm –a first-degree felony – after Los Alamos Magistrate Judge Pat Casados issued a warrant for his arrest. He remains in the Los Alamos Detention Center on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
