  • Students show what it’s like “Working on the Hill’

    Chamisa third and fourth graders performed the annual musical revue, focusing on Los Alamos history, before a packed audience March 15.
    Beginning with the first inhabitants, the ancient pueblo people, the program progressed forward in time featuring the conquistadores, the Hispanic settlers, the Santa Fe Trail and the Ranch School Boys.  
    Gen. Leslie Groves and J. Robert Oppenheimer took the stage with solos, as the workers, wives, children and the soldiers from the World War II era sang about their place on the Hill.
    Oppy and Groves sang about knowing “The World Would Never Be the Same Again.”  
    The musical ended with the workers of today’s Hill, celebrating the discoveries, technologies and missions of present-day.

  • Fashion Maven: When shopping, learn to think thrifty

    After spending two hours in a thrift store in Las Vegas, N.M. a few weeks ago, I was excited.
    Sure, I’d shopped at thrift stores multiple times before, but this time, I had mastered it. I’d learned the tricks to making smart buys at low prices and I’ve decided to share them with you.
    Thrift stores are overwhelming. There are always mounds of items everywhere. Clothes slide off the hangers and slump onto the floor, kids look at toys and leave them littered about and shelves full of old possessions look close to cracking in two.
    The trick is to get past these things. Put clothes back onto hangers and be careful not to trip on toys. But remember that going into a thrift store is not a cleaning exercise, it’s a shopping trip.
