  • Unmute: Text and Images in American Art 1970-2000

    Mesa Public Library Art Gallery, with support from the Friends of Los Alamos County Libraries, will host a traveling exhibition that explores the theme of how text and image developed new relationships in 20th century art, including the closest form of that relationship, the artist’s book.
    The event is from 4-5:30 p.m. Oct. 5 and is part of the Arts Crawl Evening, which includes the Los Alamos Historical Museum, Fuller Lodge Art Center and Karen Wray Fine Art.
    The exhibition includes many examples of artist’s books but also other works in a wide range of media as well. Works by 52 artists, many of world renown, provide a strong showing of how text and image combine to make visually and intellectually compelling art. Sol Lewitt, Joyce Kozloff, Hans Haacke, Melissa Grimes, Jaune Quick to See Smith, Pat Steir, Carrie Mae Weems, to name a few, are among those artists whose work is included in the exhibit, one so fitting to be shown in a library. New Mexico institutions have treasures in their collections, a resource to share across the state and across institutional venues for all New Mexicans and visitors to enjoy.

  • NFL referees are back to work

    NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL's regular officiating crews are back. Their return couldn't have come soon enough for many players, coaches and fans.

    After two days of marathon negotiations — and mounting frustration throughout the league — the NFL and the officials' union announced at midnight Thursday that a tentative eight-year agreement had been reached to end a lockout that began in June.

    The deal came on the heels of Seattle's chaotic last-second win over Green Bay on Monday night in which the replacement officials struggled. Commissioner Roger Goodell, who was at the bargaining table Tuesday and Wednesday, said the regular officials would work the Browns-Ravens game at Baltimore on Thursday night.

    "We are glad to be getting back on the field for this week's games," NFL Referees Association president Scott Green said.

    And plenty of players echoed that sentiment.

    "Never thought I would be excited for the refs to come back to work but it's about time it was definitely necessary!" Cleveland return specialist Josh Cribbs tweeted Thursday morning.

    Minnesota punter Chris Kluwe chimed in, too.

  • LA volleyball earns decisive win

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team picked up an impressive victory against a solid Class 4A opponent Wednesday night at Griffith Gymnasium.

    The Hilltoppers trailed only brielfy on two occassions Wednesday as they rolled to a big 25-16, 25-14, 25-15 win over the Moriarty Pintos.

    Los Alamos had the better of Moriarty in virtually all facets of the match and its defense was able to neutralize Moriarty's Arianna Jacquez, one of the top hitters in Class 4A. Meanwhile, the Hilltopper hitters were on track throughout, paced by outside hitter Erin Kirk's 14 spike kills.

    More about the Hilltoppers' victory will be in Thursday's Los Alamos Monitor.

  • Main Hill Road closed for maintenance beginning Oct. 2

    Two miles of N.M. 502, the road to Los Alamos, will be closed for several hours each day beginning Tuesday, while pavement rehabilitation work is underway. The affected highway extends from mile marker 4, near the county line, to mile marker 6, near the White Rock turn-off.


    The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) advises motorists to take the N.M. 4/East Jemez Road truck route to Los Alamos and the Los Alamos National Laboratory while road work is in progress.


    Crews will mill out two-and-a-half inches of existing pavement and repaving the road with new asphalt material to help rehabilitate the roadway.

    
According to NMDOT Maintenance Supervisor Kenny Gallegos, the repair has been a priority.

    
“It was part of our pavement preservation program for some time,” Gallegos said. “We prioritize our roads by pavement deterioration, and that section of the road is a perfect candidate.”


    The last time the road was resurfaced was in the summer of 2000, according to Gallegos. Since then, Gallegos said, water has seeped into cracks in the pavement, causing a lot of potholes in that particular area.
