    A familiar face will be the featured flute soloist in the Los Alamos Symphony’s concert on Oct. 29.  Kay Dunn, formerly Kay Kollman, lived in Los Alamos from 1964-1982 and was active during those years in the local music scene – giving recitals, playing in the Sinfonietta (now Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra) and Light Opera and teaching piano and flute.
    She returned to Los Alamos in 2007 and picked up her musical activities again.
    Dunn’s musical life began at age four when she began playing violin.

  • Assets in Action: Making the world a little brighter for those around you

    The asset of the week is about other adult relationships. I always like to point out that there are assets that everyone needs to continue to acquire and this is one of them.
    Think about the friends or other adults in your life that you enjoy being around the most. Now consider if the youth in your life have those relationships, too.
    There are many people in this community that seem to make the world a better place, or at the very least, make your day a little brighter just because you had a chance to spend some time with them.

  • Thank you

    Friends of the Shelter thanks the community of Los Alamos for the tremendous support you give our programs and for the enthusiastic turnout at the mobile adoption with Espanola Valley Humane Society on Oct. 9.
    We really appreciate Smith’s on the Hill for providing a venue for the mobile. The support of the Los Alamos Monitor cannot be overstated.  Every Sunday they include the shelter report in the paper.

  • Girls cross country: LA sticks together, picks up big home victory

    Calling it a buzzword might be something of a misnomer, but it was the word floating around most among the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls cross country team Friday.
    Faith.
    And on the odd chance that there were any doubters among them, that doubt was erased in a matter of about 15 seconds at the Los Alamos Invitational.
    At the meet, traditionally the last of the regular season for Los Alamos, all six of the Hilltoppers’ competing runners crossed the finish line in order, from four through nine, to earn a big victory.

  • Boys cross country: Toppers have solid finish, gain ground on Academy

    In 2003 when the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys cross country team upset heavily-favored Albuquerque Academy for the state Class AAAA title, it had its best showing of the regular season at the Los Alamos Invitational.
    In 2007 when the Hilltoppers upset the heavily-favored Academy Chargers for the state Class AAAA title, they had their best showing of the season at the Los Alamos Invitational.
    Could the 2010 Los Alamos Invitational be a harbinger of things to come?

  • Football: LA wins big in the Valley, 51-12
