  • He seems to like us and we definitely like him.

    Greg Abate (pronounced “Ah-bot-tay”) has been to the Hill a number of times, drawing enthusiast jazz fans from all over the mesas. He returns at 7 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Central Avenue and Main Street, under the auspices of the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series.

  • Riding in style

    My wife and I paid our first visit to Los Alamos last year. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, the scenery was wonderful and the people were very friendly. The only downside was the lack of public transport, which meant we were dependent on our son to take us wherever we wanted to go.

  • 4. Writers are unhappy.

    I know this is a stereotype. I also know it’s true. Just look at a writer’s photo – just about any writer’s photo. They frown. They brood. They burn the camera with their heavy-lidded eyes. They look brilliant – but goofy? Fun-loving? Ebullient? I don’t think so.

    Here’s the thing. We all ponder the universe from time to time. We reflect on our values. We search our souls for a good answer to the question, “What does it all mean?”

    We are all deep.

    You know, sometimes.

  • The New TOPS Club Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) Chapter will have its first meeting from 5:40-7 p.m. Thursday at the Los Alamos United Methodist Church. The new chapter will meet every Thursday. It will be starting off with some positive news.

    The numbers have been tabulated and the results are in. Members of TOPS Club Inc. lost a total of 951,902 pounds or 476 tons last year. Members in the state of New Mexico shed 2,693.75 pounds. The queen lost 62.25 pounds to goal.

  • When John and June Warren went on their honeymoon, they would later call their vacation spot “home.” Los Alamos is more than just the place where John started his career at the laboratory or the location of June’s Montessori school,  Ponderosa Montessori (formerly Sage Montessori). Los Alamos marks the beginning of their marriage.

    Fifty years later, as John and June celebrated their anniversary June 7 with friends, their daughters, their granddaughter and several cousins, they reminisced about the start of their life together.

  • Ricko Donovan will make his Guitars and Gateaux concert series debut with a hybrid of music. He refers to this musical mesh as Americeltic.

    To perform this type of music, Donovan plays the guitar and the hammered dulcimer.

    The hammered dulcimer, series coordinator Greg Schneider, explained is very different from the dulcimer, which a musician lays in his or her lap and plays like guitar.

  • Since moving to Los Alamos two summers ago, I’ve heard many stories from folks who lived through the days of the great fire of 2000. The Cerro Grande fire changed the landscape of Los Alamos and the mountains surrounding it for decades to come. Not only did the fire cause erosion by burning down vegetation, it also damaged the soil.

  • An instructor with rich experience in England and the United States in acting, directing and teaching Shakespearean theatre will lead a workshop this weekend at the Los Alamos Little Theatre (LALT).

    The workshop, to be held from 1-5 p.m. Saturday, is open to all participants, but those who plan to audition for Macbeth (LALT November production) are especially encouraged to attend.

  • John and Jean Lyman of Los Alamos figured they have a good life.

  • Is it better to write about what you know or to remain uninhibited by personal experience? Why write a play instead of a different form?

    Robert Benjamin will discuss these and other questions as the first playwright to present in Mesa Public Library’s Author Speak Series. The free event will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday in the upstairs rotunda.

    “If the audience wants to talk about process,” Benjamin said, “I can go there. Why don’t I write a novel? I can go there. I need some direction from the audience.”
