  • Boys basketball: LA opens Tuesday at home against Broncos

  • The tradition goes on

    1967 was a great year for the arts. The Beatles released “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “Magical Mystery Tour.” Jimi Hendrix released “Are You Experienced?” and the Los Alamos Arts Council held its first-ever Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair.

    The former are legendary albums, and the latter has become a 42-year tradition, drawing top-notch artists and craftsmen to the Hill just in time for local shoppers to find something original, one-of-a-kind and absolutely memorable for their loved ones for the holidays.
