  • When you take a second to make a difference, people tend to take notice.
    Los Alamos High School Hilltopper Daniel Ahrens did just that — and many people will benefit because of his compassion.
    The LAHS junior is the Speech and Debate team captain and the captain of the Lincoln Douglas debate team, but that isn’t what he was rewarded for.
    “Daniel is an outstanding student who is articulate, well-mannered and blessed with an excellent sense of humor,” said LAHS Speech and Debate coach Margo Batha.
    Ahrens is the second of four boys, the last two of which are twins, so he learned at an early age to be calm and collected.
    He is a five-year member of the YES Corps program and as such, had honed his first aid skills with years of first aid classes and lots of trail work.
    At the La Loma Invitational, the Hilltalkers 50th annual speech and debate tournament, this particular skill set came into use.
    The event hosted 235 students from all over the state, along with more than 100 adult judges and volunteers.

  • NEW YORK (AP) — Jessica Chastain easily outmuscled Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mark Wahlberg over the weekend, topping the box office with both her supernatural horror film “Mama” and the Oscar-nominated Osama bin Laden hunt thriller “Zero Dark Thirty.”
    “Mama” opened well above expectations with a box-office topping $28.1 million for Universal Pictures, according to studio estimates Sunday. Chastain also held the second spot with “Zero Dark Thirty,” for which she’s nominated by the Academy Awards for best actress. In its second week of wide release, “Zero Dark Thirty” took in $17.6 million.
    The films’ strong performances made an unlikely box-office queen out of a chameleon-like actress that even fans of “Mama” might have trouble picking out of a lineup. Chastain, whose credits range from Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” to “The Help” (for which she was also Oscar nominated), even accomplished the rare feat by besting a couple more traditional box-office stalwarts.
    Schwarzenegger’s post-governorship comeback got off to a terrible start. His action flick “The Last Stand” opened with just $6.3 million for Lionsgate, one of the worst debuts for the brawny 65-year-old star. The film came in 10th.

  • Noted French experimental writer Michel Butor, having taught in many countries around the world, was teaching at the University of Albuquerque in 1973-74 when he began a long series of communications and collaborations with French poet and Post-war School of Paris painter, Camille Bryen.
    The two men exchanged letters, drawings, paintings and collages over the course of their correspondence, which were later published in a book, “Bryen: En Temps Conjugués.” Blandine Chavanne, director of the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nantes (Museum of Fine Arts in Nantes) is curating an exhibition of their work during this period and will speak about the men and their project in a lecture Feb. 4 at the Santa Fe Art Institute.
    Admisson is $10 for general admission, $5 for students and seniors.
    Author and curator Chavanne was named director of the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nantes (Museum of Fine Arts in Nantes) in 2006.
    After earning her Diplôme d’études appliquées in fine arts in 1978, Chavanne received a Diplôme from l’Ecole du Louvre in 1982 and became the curator of the City of Poitiers Museums until 1991.

  • 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.
