Today's Features

  • Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., is a man of unusual qualities. Not only is he a genius winning numerous prestigious awards in technology, as well as a very rich man because of his designs at a weapons manufacturing firm, but he is also cocky, handsome and has a way with women that would make even Casanova jealous.

  • Los Alamos is in for an “ultra-funky, organic, electronic experiment.”

    Some listeners will think of Pink Floyd or Air. Others, of Herbie Hancock. Others, of contemporary electronica bands like Sigur Ros or The Beta Band.

    The Frequency, however, have a style all their own.

    On its Myspace page, the Los Angeles-based group describes its sound as “a reflection of things old and new,” and its inspiration as coming from “a love of Moogs, the sound of a real Fender Rhodes piano and vintage Fender amps.”

  • Making

    memories

    We want to thank all those friends who came to George’s retirement celebration at Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church.

    It was a wonderful turn out and it gave us an incomparable memory to treasure. You have been most generous in your outpouring of cards, gifts and comments to George, and we are most grateful.

    This is a community we love and the people here are indeed a blessing in our lives.

    Thank you, each one.

    Love,

    Joann and George Anderson

    Celebrating 20 years

  • Of all my memories of Shanghai, I most clearly recall sitting on the bus. Specifically, I remember looking out at miles of e hi-rises, hundreds of them, bland, uniform, claustrophobic as gravel, but overwhelmingly big, filling up both ground and sky.

  • The third grade GATE program at Aspen Elementary School collected 2,300 books for the Checkerboard Area Health System waiting rooms.

    Used children’s books in good condition were needed to make the waiting rooms more patient friendly, and the Checkerboard Area Health System worked to comply with the CAHS Community Guidance Council’s request for books.

    Several other donors contributed to the book drive. Jemez Valley Medical Clinic and the Cuba Health Center received multiple donations of children’s books.

  • Light the candles! The Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos is 60 years old this year.

    The celebration is low key, but don’t be surprised if you hear announcements about the anniversary at local pancake breakfasts and the 2008 fireworks show.

  • Join other children from age 3 years old to those entering third grade in fall 2008 for a fun-filled week of scientific adventure, “Discovering Jesus’ Miraculous Power” at Vacation Bible School.

  • It’s cleanup time for the Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church congregation. However, it won’t be all work and no play; the graduates from elementary, middle and high schools will be honored during the 10:30 a.m. service Sunday.

    During the service, the Rev. Colin Kelly said the graduates stand up to be recognized and receive a gift. High school graduating seniors also tell what their plans are for after graduation.

  • It began when she was 9 years old and received a cherry-red journal with a lock and key from her sister for Valentine’s Day.

  • Remember when it was an eternity from birthday to birthday? When your mom could send you to the corner store with a quarter to pick up a loaf of bread and you had money left over to buy a piece of candy? When you could lie on your back for hours, holding on to a string, gazing at your kite floating overhead, just daydreaming? Well, time continues to accelerate and inflation continues to make that quarter worth less and less, but the good news is that you can still spend the day gazing at kites floating overhead.
