  • Visual/spatial thinkers, those with more of a bodily/kinesthetic learning style and those who have considered exploring art as a creative outlet should begin this season because Fuller Lodge Art Center just published their spring art class schedule, and it’s chock full of opportunities for all styles of learners.

  • With so many beautiful places to visit above ground, it should be no surprise that beneath the Earth, about 300 miles south of Los Alamos, lies one of the most intriguing and beautiful National Parks in New Mexico.
    Carlsbad Caverns is one of those places that tourists flock to visit, but residents tend to forget about. A couple of years ago when my family and I finally visited the park, it was the middle of July and the parking lot was packed. Though there were a few New Mexico license plates on the parked cars, most were from out-of-state.

  • It’s 1939 and the melodrama “Gone with the Wind” is promised to be the largest and greatest film of all time; that is, if the filming is ever completed.

  • Calling all young artists, it’s Dog Jog Logo Contest time! The Los Alamos Dog Jog Committee is calling on all creative young artists to put their imaginations and love of dogs to work by submitting a drawing for the 2011 Los Alamos Dog Jog Logo Contest.

    The winning design will be used as the official 2011 Los Alamos Dog Jog logo and will be placed on event T-shirts and other official event materials.

  • Those who have wanted to go on a National Geographic or Smithsonian exploration, but balked at the almost $4,000 cost are in luck. It’s not a discount on these adventures being offered, but rather the same level of experience in their own backyards for a much lower cost.
    Local geologist Kirt Kempter, who leads group trips for both National Geographic and Smithsonian exploration, is leading a trip for Pajarito Environmental Education Center to Georgia O’Keeffe country on Saturday. The cost is $25 per person or $60 per family.   

  • The risks for identity theft are everywhere. Mail, computers, credit cards, even trash all present opportunities for criminals to gain access to personal information. To prevent identity theft, people must constantly be aware of the ways that criminals use to gain access to personal, identifying information.
    The Los Alamos Council of the Extension Association of New Mexico in conjunction with the Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization are sponsoring a program on learning how to recognize the most common scams and how to protect identity.

  • “The battle of Iwo Island has been won. The United States Marines by their individual and collective courage have conquered a base which is as necessary to us in our continuing forward movement toward final victory as it was vital to the enemy in staving off ultimate defeat. By their victory, the 3rd, 4th and 5th Marine Divisions and other units of the Fifth Amphibious Corps have made an accounting to their country which only history will be able to value fully. Among the Americans who served on Iwo Island, uncommon valor was a common virtue.”
