  • Groups join forces to help UNICEF

    Kiwanis, a global volunteer organization — and Key Cub International, its younger counterpart — have joined forces with UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus.
    In an effort to help spread awareness and raise money for the vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation and time of skilled staff members, Los Alamos High School Key Club Secretary, Katelyn Littleton, has dedicated much of her senior year to this cause called, “Project Eliminate.”
    The elimination of maternal and neonatal tetanus is being done through the administration of a vaccine that protects a mother and all her children from the deadly disease, which affects roughly 60,000 babies every year, due to unsanitary birthing practices.

  • LAHS Olions present: 'Rags'

    The years between 1905 and 1917 were difficult for Jews in Russia. The pre-revolutionary years witnessed a persecution of the Chosen People not known to Europe since the Spanish Inquisition.
    Jews were blamed for the assassination of Czar Alexander II in 1881 and became scapegoats for the growing revolutionary sentiment in Russia. They were subjected to humiliating taxes, anti-Semitic laws and state-sponsored terror.
    In the 40 years leading up to the 1917 Bolshevik revolution, nearly three million Jews were forced out of their homes to leave Russia.

  • Movie Review: Hitch a ride on the ‘Chungking Express’

    This week, the library will screen writer/director Kar Wei Wong’s “Chungking Express,” a '90s movie that feels like a 90s movie. Having “come of age” in the 90s, I mean that as a compliment.
    I like flannel shirts mixed with impressionistic psychotic love. And, it turns out — no offense to my Seattle-born (go figure) Anglo husband — I sometimes like Chinese men.
    This is a great movie, but to be honest, it took me a long time to realize it. I was well into the film before I started to understand and care about its very messed up characters.
    In some cases, it was easy, such as with the aforementioned Chinese men, by which I actually mean man, or much more specifically, Cop 663, played by Tony Liung Chiu Wai.
