  • Fashion Maven: Set sail with the new ‘sailor’ look

    Okay, everybody loves the latest fashion trends, especially in the summer. I am a trend freak and am always looking for the next “in” thing.
    In the past month, I have cottoned on to one of the best trends to hit the stores yet: the on-the-ship sailor trend.
    It is being worn by teens and adults around the world, touching base with brands like Tommy Hilfiger, who has now called it his new “prep look.”
    This new sailor look is made up of three basic colors: dark navy blue, red and white. It is accented with beige, white, or black, but only in little doses.
    Stripes are the main pattern and they usually are either worn on top as a shirt, or on the bottom as a skirt, pants, or high-waisted shorts.

  • ‘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.
