  • The 19th Annual Crèches From Around the World, an annual exhibition featuring nativity sets collected by members of the many churches in Los Alamos, will be from 1-7 p.m. Dec. 7 and from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Dec. 8, at 1967 18th St. (off 15th and Sage Street).
    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Los Alamos Ward, sponsors the event. The event is free and refreshments will be served throughout the day.
    The crèche, a French term, is the portrayal of the nativity through figurines of people and animals that often include the setting of a stable or a village scene.
    The exhibit features crèches from more than 100 countries, collected by residents of Los Alamos, or by members of the LDS church, who have served missions in many parts of the world.
    Crèches featured represent South and Central America, most of Europe, many from most of the United States, as well as many from most pueblos in the area; many Asian countries; most African countries; and many hand crafted by artists in nearby communities.
    The nativity figures are made from a wide variety of materials, to include: wood, ceramic, papier-mâché, various nuts, straw, glass, fabrics, wood, stone, clay and bamboo.
    The Créche Show is part of the annual WinterFest week, the first week of December.

  • NEW YORK (AP) — AC/DC is finally releasing its music digitally on iTunes.
    Columbia Records and Apple announced Monday that the classic rock band’s music will be available at the iTunes Store worldwide.
    Sixteen studio albums will be released, including “High Voltage” and “Back in Black,” which is already in the Top 30 on iTunes’ top albums chart.
    Two of the group’s albums are also in the Top 100 and several of the Australian band’s songs are in the Top 200.
    AC/DC was one of the few acts that would not release music through the digital outlet.
    Two years ago Apple struck a deal with The Beatles’ record label, EMI Group, and management company, and began selling the group’s music.
    Kid Rock, who had also been against selling his music through the digital retailer, is releasing a new album, “Rebel Soul,” on Monday and it’s available on iTunes.
    Four of AC/DC’s live albums and three compilation records are also available.
    The statement said the songs have been mastered for iTunes “with increased audio fidelity.”
    The group’s first live album in 20 years, “Live at River Plate,” was out Tuesday.

  • GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Two-time Academy Award winning director Steven Spielberg expressed a sense of humility Monday as he delivered the keynote address during ceremonies to mark the 149th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address.”
    “I’ve never stood anyplace on earth where it’s easier to be humbled than here,” said Spielberg, whose biopic about the 16th president is currently in theaters.
    His remarks were made at the annual event at the Soldier’s National Cemetery in Gettysburg, near the site where Lincoln gave the famous oration amid the American Civil War in 1863, four months after the battle in which the Union turned back an invasion of the North by Confederate troops under Gen. Robert E. Lee.
    After spending seven years working his new movie “Lincoln,” Spielberg said the president came to feel like one of his oldest and dearest friends, and he sensed he was living in the presence of what he called Lincoln’s “eloquent ghost.”
    “Lincoln wanted us to understand that equality was a small ‘D’ democratic essential,” Spielberg said, describing Lincoln’s three-minute speech as “his best and truest voice” and the single “most perfect prose poem ever penned by an American.”

  • The Los Alamos County Library System online catalog will be unavailable to patrons from 8 a.m.-noon Nov. 27, for a system catalog software update.
    Though patrons may not notice a big difference, the planned upgrade to the integrated library system software will increase efficiency for librarians’ behind the scenes tasks, according to Mesa Public Library’s Carol Meine.
    While the system is unavailable, patrons will not be able to use any online services. They will not be able to search for books, make requests, check their account or use the downloadable e-books and audio books services.
    However, patrons are still encouraged to visit either library to browse and, if they bring along their library card, library staff can check in and check out books. However, even the librarians won’t be able to look up patron account information.
    For more information, contact libweb@lacnm.us or call 662-8253.

    Stavert was raised in Los Alamos and graduated from LAHS in 2008. The award reads, “You consistently performed your duties in an exemplary and highly professional manner by scoring higher on the written tests and on the performance evaluations than any of your peers, making you the academic leader for the company with an overall average of 96.0%.”
    The company consisted of approximately 450 graduates from around the country.
    In addition to the award, Stavert was invited to a private lunch with the commanding officer of the Marine Corps Training Battalion, to discuss positive and negative aspects of his training and his future career in the Marine Corps.  
    Stavert is continuing his training program at the U.S. Navy Air Station at Pensacola, Fla., and is being trained as an expeditionary airfield support technician.
