  • A dollar for your thoughts

    Every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven.  Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers, if you want the things you love, you must have showers.
     I do love Billie Holiday!  A time when one could be penny wise and sixteen ounces foolish.  When saving a penny was associated with earning.
     But today, would you equate a penny for your thoughts as a compliment?  When someone puts in their two cents, isn’t it just as easy to out-shout them with a dime?
    Once again, the innocuous cent is the center of intense debate.  In 1982, rising copper prices prompted us to change the penny’s composition to alleviate its production cost.  Pennies are now 97.5% zinc, with a 2.5% copper coating.

  • Higher taxes unnecessary to fund CIP projects

    Last Sunday’s Los Alamos Monitor article (“CIP projects face budgetary roadblock,”) highlights the reality of Los Alamos county government finances.  Even with our already high taxes, there isn’t enough money to do everything.

  • Ask Fr. John: Understanding Pascha, part two

    Why is Eastern Orthodox Christian “Easter” THIS Sunday? - JBA

    Actually, Orthodox Easter was last Sunday. In the last article, we mentioned how the feast of Pascha lasts the entire week following Easter Sunday. To be more precise, it is as if the midnight service continues without breaking until the next Sunday.
    We call this week after Pascha “Bright Week” because all is filled with the light of the Resurrection. Following Bright Week a shift occurs and we remain in the feast for another 33 days. That is until the Feast of the Ascension.
