  • Bell tower to be blessed Sunday

    On Sunday, following Divine Liturgy, Father John Hennies, the community and friends of Saint Dimitri Orthodox Church, will gather for the blessing of the new bell tower at 2270 39th St.

    The bell tower grew out of a desire to improve the building’s identification as well as to simplify giving directions on how to reach the church.  

  • Unitarian Church to honor 23 years of service

    The Unitarian Church of Los Alamos will honor Director of Religious Education Joyce Zaugg, who is retiring after more than 23 years of service. Zaugg will be honored during worship services and with an appreciation luncheon Sunday.

    Zaugg began work at the church in January 1986, leading the congregation’s Religious Education program for a small number of children. The program has since grown to more than 70 children taking part in Sunday school classes, youth groups, children’s worship and social activities.

  • Getting along at the skate park

    The recent story concerning a monitor and fence at the skate park and skater “etiquette” courses for the skaters who use the park near the library was ironic in light of the controversy over its location last year. I think most dissenters over the location at that time were not against skaters but recognized that the sensitivities of library patrons and skate park patrons would be in conflict. These steps towards overseeing the park and separating the groups certainly seem to prove that view.

  • Vote of confidence for Katko

    Here are a few thoughts about our child's and our own experiences at Mountain Elementary School: In our opinion, Mike Katko has been the best principal in a long time at Mountain Elementary School. We have lived right next the school for about 10 years, and our boy attended there from K-6 grades.

  • Bicycle safety question

    I couldn't help but notice the front page picture (Monitor, April 16) of bicyclists riding three abreast on the Jemez Bypass road. Isn't that against the law? And dangerous? Especially with the Jeep shown in the picture approaching from behind. And why does the caption seem to condone it!

    Article X, Chapter 38, Section 38-545(c) of the Los Alamos County Code of Ordinances states:

  • Alzheimer's Caf

    I would like to let the community know about a little café in town. It is only held the fourth Thursday of the month at the White Rock Baptist Church. It is a place that anyone dealing with dementia along with their families or caregivers can come have fun and relax together.

    The theme, "No Stigma" "No Explanations" "No Charge" "Just have Fun," is something that anyone dealing with Alzheimer's or any other form of dementia can understand!

  • DPU survey results released

    Results from a survey conducted on the performance of the county’s Department of Public Utilities revealed that most residents feel the department is on the right track.

    Recently, results from a local customer satisfaction survey were released and nine out of 10 respondents rated the department’s overall performance as good or excellent, with a mean rating of 3.3 and 3.4 out of a possible high score of four.

  • Richardson: Los Alamos to get $3 million in stimulus money

    Gov. Richardson rolled into town Wednesday morning on another stop of his statewide listening tour concerning the economic stimulus package.

    The governor and his staff assembled a group of community leaders and legislators at Fuller Lodge.

    “I’m going to every county, talking mainly to elected officials and answering some questions about the stimulus,” Richardson said. “I want to be sure that each community is aware of all the potential competitive grants.”

  • Get ready to flip

    You’ll flip when you see the Los Alamos High School Olions’ production of “Bye, Bye Birdie.”

    Seriously. The 1950s weren’t so hot for women’s rights, world peace or suspected Communists, but they were great for music and theater. The local drama club and director Holly Haas made a way boss decision when they picked “Birdie” for their annual musical.

  • Fulfilling a dream

    Darlene Bawden always wanted to be an artist, but having a husband and six children made this dream difficult to follow.

    It was not until she saw a few watercolors by Secundino Sandoval that Bawden was inspired to take action.

    By following her dream, Bawden has been invited  to host her own show at the Betty Ehart Senior Center. The show, which features 11 watercolors, will be displayed through May 30.

    In addition to this show, Bawden also participated in the “Four Seasons”  juried show earlier this year at the Art Center at Fuller Lodge.
