    She added, “It really, really made a lasting impact.”

  • If anyone wondered what Los Alamos High School art classeshave been up to all year, they just had to take a look around the classroom.

    “I think the work is really fantastic,” art teacher Dana Salmond said. “They’re so talented ee every student has some beautiful work.”

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

    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.”

Well, time continues to accelerate and inflation continues to make that quarter worth less and less, but the good news is that you can still spend the day gazing at kites floating overhead.
