  • Girls track and field: LA dominates rest of field Saturday

    As has been the case for much of the season so far, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team earned an impressive victory Saturday.

    Los Alamos won a whopping 12 events as it took the team title going away at Saturday’s Capital City Invitational. Los Alamos finished with 209 team points, a better total than the next four schools in the final team standings combined.

  • Grace Vineyard finds a permanent home

    When Grace Vineyard was founded in 1991, the church met in various locations throughout the community.

    Finally, the church staff settled on Chamisa Elementary School in 1994. They figured it would only be a few years before a permanent location was found.

    However, it took a little longer than expected. Rev. Jack Sullivan said different locations were determined to be either too small or too expensive. Fifteen years later, the church along with the office that was located next to the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division, relocated to 1183 Diamond Drive, Suite C.

  • Golf: Third round begins at Augusta with Tiger lurking

    AUGUSTA, Ga. — Finding himself in a familiar position heading to the weekend at Augusta National, Tiger Woods flashed a smile that oozed with confidence.

    The kind of smile that harkens back to the days of Jack Nicklaus and what they used to say about him:

    He knows he's going to beat you — and he knows that you know he's going to beat you.

  • Center wipes the slate clean for a fresh start

    Start fresh seems to be the motto of the organization formerly known as the Art Center at Fuller Lodge  – it will now be known as  the Fuller Lodge Art Center.

    Walking into the building, the evidence of wiping  the slate clean is everywhere. The honey-colored wood floors sparkle after being refinished by county employees, there’s a faint smell of fresh paint that was applied to the walls and the entire building is bare and ready for a new beginning.

  • Pack to perform in LASO

    Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Marion Pack is shutting the lid on her instrument case, temporarily, anyway.

    For 18 months, starting this summer, Pack and her husband will undergo a new experience as they participate in Senior Missionaries through their church, Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At this time, they do not know where they will be sent or what kind of work they will do for the year-and-a-half mission – some missionaries work in the states and others are sent to third world countries.

  • Learn from Tiger Woods

    We’ve heard a lot this week about Tiger Woods and his return to the golf course.

    I’m sure you’re wondering once again how this relates to Assets.

    The truth is the Assets program was given a small portion of money to run the Tiger Woods Foundation program in Los Alamos this year. It started out with several groups in town interested in reading Woods’ book, “Start Something.” We started out great and the kids found it interesting and  an easy read.

    Then we arrived at the month of November.
