Today's Features

  • Los Alamos County Library System and the Santa Clara Pueblo Library are teaming up to bring theatrical fun to kids from both communities this summer.

    From 1-4 p.m. Thursday at the Santa Clara Pueblo Neighborhood Facility Gym, adjacent to the library, children will embark on an imaginary vegetable safari in the play “The Caterpillar Hunter,” presented by The Traveling Lantern Theater Company from Portland, Ore.

  • I was running along, overlooking White Rock Canyon, the Rio Grande sparkling at its vertiginous nadir, when a few words coming through my iPod stole my attention. Fiona Apple was singing in her beautiful, gloomy way about how we all want something similar to what we already have, even if we hate it. Amy Mann sings about this, too – “condemning the future to death so we can match the past.”

  • They’re already out there, Nikons and Canons slung around their necks or fixed in front of their faces – the camera becoming more of a second face than a piece of technology.

    They call themselves a posse.

  • After 35 years of providing home medical care, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy, Los Alamos Visiting Nurses have decided the time is right for a party.

    As a result, an open house will be held from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Visiting Nurses office.

    Cake and punch will be served. “(We’re) just inviting everybody to come celebrate,” executive director Sarah Rochester said. “(It’s) kind of a long time to have a business in Los Alamos.

  • Men and women are invited to learn what the Bible teaches about gender equality during a conference at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church.

    The conference will be held from 7-9 p.m. July 31 and Aug. 1 and from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Aug. 2.

    Facilitators will be the reverends Kathy Wozniak and Pat Joyce, who have serve as missionaries and representatives of the “Shofar Sound.”

  • The Santa Fe Opera’s critically acclaimed production of Benjamin Britten’s “Billy Budd” doesn’t ask and doesn’t answer the most obvious question, which has to do with the sexuality of the main character.

  • It began as a simple transaction between friends but transformed into an intriguing mystery.

    Tony Chan of Los Alamos purchased a guitar from a friend two or three years ago, and perhaps at first glance it appeared to be a beat-up Martin guitar, but a few clues revealed there was more to the musical instrument than what met the eye.

  • Los Alamos was founded to put a very big idea into fruition. Ever since the days of the Manhattan Project, when scientists worked to create the first nuclear bomb, that effort to produce new ideas and create inventions has continued.

    To celebrate how the gears, cogs and wheels haven’t stopped turning in the community, the MainStreet organization is hosting the Next Big Idea, a festival of discovery, innovation and invention.

    The festival will be held from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at 15th Street and Central Avenue.

  • Double your pleasure, double your fun this weekend with two Gordons’ Concerts.

    The party begins at 7 p.m. Friday, when The Gourds take the stage at Pajarito Mountain Ski Area. The annual ski hill show is always a community favorite, and concert organizer Russ Gordon is sure this year’s band will become a favorite as well.

    “The Gourds are alternative country rock, which I’d never heard of,” Gordon said. “They’re kaleidoscopic country rockers, which I can picture.”

  • Middle and high school students are invited to join local senior citizens for cookies and milk Thursday. The monthly installment of Cookies and Conversation developed by the Assets In Action project will be held at 1p.m. at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.

    The hour-long meet and greet is a way to build relationships between two entities whose paths may not cross on a regular basis. Seniors and teens are paired up for question and answer sessions that are done with a fast paced tempo, tackling pre-selected questions along with suggestions from the participants.
