  • Climbing school graduates

    Fourteen climbers conquered their fears and physical challenges, and as a result, are able to scale mountains, literally.

    The students enrolled in the Los Alamos Mountaineers climbing school, which kicked off March 25, put their skills to the test with a graduation climb at Tres Piedras May 3.

    Graduate climbers practiced traditional climbing, and spent from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. that day “climbing like maniacs,” instructor Kai Davis said.

  • Scientist by day, superhero by night

    Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., is a man of unusual qualities. Not only is he a genius winning numerous prestigious awards in technology, as well as a very rich man because of his designs at a weapons manufacturing firm, but he is also cocky, handsome and has a way with women that would make even Casanova jealous.

  • Golf: Griffith among top at Towa

    Reid Griffith of Los Alamos shot an 88 to finish second in the championship flight of the May 12 Northern New Mexico Senior Men’s Golf Association tournament.

    The tournament was held at Towa Golf Resort at Pojoaque.

    Griffith finished four strokes behind Dean Boice of Alamosa, Colo., who won the top flight.

    Also in Monday’s championship flight, Los Alamos’ Dave Vieira finished with the runner-up net score, shooting a net of 80. Al Jehner of Santa Fe had the top low net in Monday’s tournament.

  • Health and Fitness: Squats: the spinach of lifts

    We all have a love-hate relationship with squats, the so-called “king” of all exercises.

    But by understanding the mechanics and benefits of the squat, you can increase your attraction to this exercise and enhance its value in your routine.

    When performed correctly, squats build the body’s power muscles of the lower back, hips, buttocks and thighs. Being an exercise with a large range of motion, the squat stretches each area worked and then requires a hard contraction of the muscle spindles to perform the lift.

  • Banking on knowledge: Website redefines values

    The restless energy of the World Wide Web continues to carve out new spaces and inspire new journals, tools and experiences. One quality they seem to have in common is the creation of novel communities with unique shapes and dimensions.

    A few highly successful Internet communities like MySpace and Facebook have become daily accessories to the real world, offering platforms for self-expression with strong social overtones.

    Others, like SecondLife, are rooted in a virtual world with a peculiar emergent life of their own.

  • Electronic rock band next up in series

    Los Alamos is in for an “ultra-funky, organic, electronic experiment.”

    Some listeners will think of Pink Floyd or Air. Others, of Herbie Hancock. Others, of contemporary electronica bands like Sigur Ros or The Beta Band.

    The Frequency, however, have a style all their own.

    On its Myspace page, the Los Angeles-based group describes its sound as “a reflection of things old and new,” and its inspiration as coming from “a love of Moogs, the sound of a real Fender Rhodes piano and vintage Fender amps.”

  • Hall: ‘No excuse for bad behavior’

    County Council Chair James Hall said he felt ashamed of the behavior exhibited by various community members caught up in the skate park project set for construction in downtown Los Alamos.

  • School renewal takes shape

    Nine months away from a likely school bond referendum that has not been formally set, Los Alamos Board of Education President Steve Girrens and retiring Superintendent Jim Anderson sounded like the election plan was all but a go.

    Speaking at a Kiwanis Club luncheon Tuesday, Girrens laid out the 20-year program that many civic and community groups will probably see over the next several months.
