  • ‘Deathly Hallows’ is action-packed

    Posters and commercials for the final Harry Potter movie announce, “It all ends.” On July 15, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,” opened in North America.
    The movie began exactly where it left off in part one. Harry Potter, (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) still have to find and destroy four “horcruxes,” or “pieces of Lord Voldemort’s (Ralph Fiennes), soul” in order to defeat him.
    Most of the movie takes place at Hogwarts School of Wizards and Wizardry, where Professor Severus Snape (Allan Rickman) is now headmaster. Voldemort, even more evil than in previous movies, is still trying to find and kill Harry.

  • Animal Shelter 07-24-11

    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.
    Thanks to the shelter staff for outstanding service to the community during the Las Conchas Fire evacuation.
    It’s summer, remember that pets also suffer when the temperature rises. Cooling animals (dogs, rabbits, cats) by giving them a “cool” bath or shower to help keep their body temperature down.
    A cool towel on a tile floor to lay on, a cool towel or washcloth laying over the skin, next to a fan will also help cool the animal.
    Make sure they have plenty of cool water to drink as well.

  • Finding a furry friend just got easier

    Friends of the Shelter invites Los Alamos residents to the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter to have their colors done.  
    The new Pet Adoption Matching Program uses colors to help potential adopters find the cat or dog that best matches their home environment, lifestyle, family situation and companionship needs.  
    In doing this, shelter personnel hope to increase the rate of adoptions from the shelter and to reduce the number of failed adoptions.
    Potential adopters will have the opportunity to complete a short questionnaire before they visit the cat room or dog kennels.
