  • Chances are you know one of the Sorenson clan. With a family as large, exuberant and talented as they are, it’s hard to pass under the radar in Los Alamos. Village Arts is providing a platform for their many talents through a show entitled, “All in the Family,” which will be shown through Jan. 3 at the store on DP Road. Artwork spans three generations and covers a broad spectrum of styles and media.
    Ken Nebel, Village Arts co-owner, has known some of the Sorenson family members since grade school, and grew up along side them.

  • Editor’s note: This is the final story in a series introducing the characters featured in Agatha Christie’s “Go Back For Murder” production at Los Alamos Little Theater.

    It wasn’t me, although I’m hardly innocent. In fact, I don’t know who the murderer was. What I do know is that I’m the one that’s dead. That’s right, I’m the one that got murdered. I am, or was, Amyas Crale.

  • These three women show their holiday spirit in front of Starbucks Dec. 24.

  • Editor’s note: This story and the following story are part of a series introducing the characters featured in Agatha Christie’s “Go Back For Murder” production at Los Alamos Little Theater.

    My name is Angela Warren and I am Caroline’s sister. I know that I’ve forgotten many of the details of the day of the murder, as I am sure so many of the other people who were there that day have.

  • I’m Margaret Williams (played by Claire Singleton), but everyone at Alderbury called me Miss Williams. I was Angela’s governess before my posting to the Belgian Embassy, when Angela went away to school.

  • “The Next Frontier: Engineering the Golden Age of Green,” a new documentary describing solutions to problems of climate change, will be shown at 7 p.m. Thursday at PEEC, 3540 Orange St.  Brad Marshland, director and filmmaker, will be present to introduce the film and answer questions after the screening.
     “The Next Frontier” cuts through the debate about global warming and climate change.

  • Hello, my name is Philip Blake and I am a partner in Kellway, Blake and Leverstein, the finest brokerage in London. Sixteen years ago, my good friend Amyas Crale was murdered by his wife Caroline. At the behest of their daughter Carla, I and the other witnesses have inexplicably been persuaded to participate in a reenactment of the crime, in order to satisfy Carla that the events of that day did indeed unfold, as we all know they did.

  • Thank you Los Alamos. Six cats and two dogs were adopted last week.
    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.
    All of our fully reconditioned adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro-chipped.
    Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  
    Every cat is only
    $35 with an extended two-for-one sale.

  • The community is invited to share in the nativity story with the younger members of Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, located at 3900 Trinity Drive, at 5 p.m. Friday.
    “The Grumpy Shepherd” is the title of this year’s seasonal musical, to be staged, sung and choreographed by children and teens aged 5-15.

  • Mi Ra Won, born in Seoul, South Korea, said she wanted to be an artist since she was five years old, and her dream has never changed.
    In January, others will see the result of that dream as Won has a solo show of her impressionist oil and watercolor paintings in the Mesa Public Library Art Gallery. A public reception will be from 4-5:30 p.m. Jan. 7 in the Mesa Public Library’s upstairs gallery.

  • The holiday season wields a lot of power. As soon as the calendar lands on Dec. 1, I hoist an artificial Christmas tree up my apartment stairwell and locate the holiday carols buried in my iTunes library. I know I whine about how commercialized the holidays have become and roll my eyes when I see ornaments for sale in October, but truthfully, I get excited at the first sightings of the holiday hoopla.

  • If nothing else, no one can accuse Dan Hicks of taking his new Christmas album too seriously.
    But even for those, such as myself, who like their holiday music with a touch of irreverence, “Crazy for Christmas” might be a little much for the ear. On several of Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks’ yuletide offerings, I found myself wondering just how many times they’d been dipping their glasses into the adult eggnog bowl.

  • Library patrons might be familiar with all the books, DVDs, CDs and other materials available to check out, but both county libraries also offer a full slate of programs for all ages.
    Starting in January, a new round of the AuthorSpeaks Series and Mesa Public Library Free Film series kick off and other series continue with new lineups.

  • The Monitor has the inside scoop on what locals are reading. Otowi Station issued a current list of  popular books for Los Alamos readers.

  • Editor’s note: This story and the following story are part of a series introducing the characters featured in Agatha Christie’s “Go Back For Murder” production at Los Alamos Little Theater.

    Los Alamos Little Theatre’s “Go Back For Murder” is more than an Agatha Christie novel, it consists of interesting and intriguing characters. It is my job as the narrator, Hercule Poirot, to introduce you to the suspects — I mean characters — who make up this play.

  • My name is Carla and I am Caroline’s daughter. My mother is now gone, but I have proof of her innocence. I have a letter that she wrote telling me so and my mother has never lied to me. I will figure out who killed that painter, if it’s the last thing I do.

  • Thanks for a successful fair

    The hard work of many dedicated volunteers resulted in a successful Northern New Mexico Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair. In addition to the Los Alamos Arts Council, the fair benefited from the efforts of RSVP members who posted flyers around Los Alamos before the fair and the Fabulous 50s Café that provided the food and beverages for the event.
