  • The Los Alamos Geological Society will host a banquet and talk at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Christian Church, featuring Dr. Paul Bauer, of the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources.
    This talk is a geo-photo-journey down the northern Rio Grande, with an emphasis on the river hydrogeology and the evolution of the sublime landscape.
    It will include some thoughts on the birth and adolescence of the river, where it gets its water and its system of springs.
    They will also explore the geologic setting of rapids along the river, the Tertiary battles between water and lava and tidbits of riverside human history.
    Bauer is a principal geologist and associate director at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources at New Mexico Tech.
    He received a doctorate in geology from New Mexico Tech in 1988. He served as manager of the state’s Geologic Mapping Program for 12 years and was program coordinator for the New Mexico Decision-Makers Field Conferences for 10 years, a program designed to bridge the gap between earth scientists and policy makers.
    Since his first Taos Box rafting trip in 1980, he has spent much of the last 30 years investigating the geology and hydrogeology of north-central New Mexico. He has led many field trips to the area, including educational whitewater rafting tours.

    Their monthly brisket night will take place on Jan. 31 and local cadets could use some support.
    “The academic team will be going to Las Vegas, Nev. for the annual Brain Brawl, where they will compete against Area 13,” Thomas said. “The money raised will help pay for the transportation, hotel rooms and meals.”
    Thomas became interested in the Los Alamos NJROTC Unit when she was in middle school, after target shooting at the Sportsman Club. She now competes on the unarmed regulation drill team, the unarmed exhibition drill team, the academic team and the tug-of-war team.
    “Once I got involved with the unit and the people, I realized they had much more to offer other than just shooting.”
    Thomas said she had a wonderful time after joining the drill team and gained personal experiences with the unit.
     “I have learned endless amounts of leadership skills by participating in various activities in our class, in a leadership camp over the summer and have been put in many leadership positions that helps me and many others learn leadership hands-on,” Thomas said.
