  • Co-op celebrates opening--video extra

    After five years of work, the Los Alamos Co-op Market was able to officially open its doors to the community during a grand opening celebration Saturday morning.

    VaLynn Purvis of Party 2 Go set up a Jolly Jumper outside the store and vendors sold everything from cinnamon bread to scented lotions.

    Despite all the festivities, the employees of the market seemed to just take pleasure in the fact that the store has now officially opened.

    “It’s been satisfying. We’ve been waiting for this for five years … it’s been a long wait,” Tim Morrison, front-end manager, said.

    “It’s been a lot of work but it’s definitely worthwhile,” he added.

    Ode to my thinking apparatus

    It’s up there … somewhere.
    I know it is,
    At least … I think so.
    Ever so often I wonder,
    And tap its encasing.

    It provides actions,
    Like smiles,
    And frowns, sometimes.
    It will always talk for me,
    But never out loud.

    It is pink and squishy,
    Like a piece of,
    Chewed up bubble gum.
    And I treasure it always,
    An important existence.

    It taps ten impatient fingers,
    And wiggles ten,
    Free little painted toes.
    It rolls two teasingly sarcastic eyes,
    And gushes gurgling giggles.

    And at the moment it,
    Is thinking about

  • It’s not the destination, but the climb

    Nearly hanging upside down 30 feet above the ground, a young teen climber is losing his grip on the tricky handhold he is clinging to. He makes a wild grab for the next hold and misses, only to fall about six inches and be caught by the rope of his belayer.
    Most of the members of the Teen Climbing Club experience similar scenarios when they climb at the YMCA. The club meets from 6-8 p.m. every Wednesday.
    Climbing Wall Supervisor Sandra West brought back the club in September of 2010, after the old one was canceled in 2009.
    “The TCC is a good space for teens to climb, hang out with friends or just boulder casually,” West said.

  • Animal Shelter 04-17-11

    The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on-site adoptable pets; others are in foster care with loving, temporary homes.
    All of our fully reconditioned adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro-chipped.
    Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  
    We get lots of roaming cats and dogs. Don’t assume your cat was a meal for a coyote. Check with the shelter and see if your best friend is bunking with us. Proof of rabies vaccination is required when claiming your pet.
