  • Fashion Maven: What's trending in the fashion world

    The weather is still cold enough that someone would have to pay about $1 billion to make you stop wearing cuddly sweaters, warm pea coats and toasty boots, but believe it or not, spring is heading our way and in the fashion world, it has already arrived.
    Designers recently wrapped up most of their spring runway shows and I’ve combed through some of their looks to bring you the top trends of the coming season before anyone else does.
    What’s my reason for such an early start? During, after and even before the spring runway shows, clothing stores and less prominent designers take the extravagant looks they see marching down the runways and “humanize” them.
    These consumer-friendly products, which are based on — but are less flamboyant than — the exotic creations seen during the fashion shows, are then sent to your favorite stores, all before spring even turns the corner.
    That means that right now, the newest spring trends are already in stores and if you want to get the cream of the crop, shopping for the next season now is much smarter than waiting until the flowers start sprouting in the spring.
    So let’s cut to the chase. Here’s a list of next season’s trends and essential pieces.

  • Organizations help those in need

    Every year, joy is brought to children who don’t have the most ideal situation at home.
    Each Christmas, Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Los Alamos helps give children in Santa Fe and the surrounding areas, a brighter holiday through the Angel Tree.
    The Angel Tree is a Christmas tree set up in the church and is covered with tags listing the requests of children in need of gifts. The parish community members fulfill the tag requests to help families who can’t afford presents for their children.  
    This year, 586 children received 1,065 gifts, including 24 bicycles, more than 60 gift cards and one mini iPad, in total equaling more than one ton of presents.  
    This is all made possible through the coordination of three different organizations that work with IHM: Sojourners, a homeless advocacy group; Bienvenidos, a food bank in Santa Fe and Children Youth and Family Services Foster Care. All three of these groups help find children who are in need of Christmas gifts.

  • Animal Shelter 01-20-13

    The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of onsite adoptable pets waiting for their forever home. Others are currently off-campus in loving foster homes.
    Be sure to visit the Friends of the Shelter website, lafos.org, where you can get more information about volunteering, adopting and donating. Also check out the Petfinder page for pictures and to learn more about all of the adoptable pets, petfinder.com/shelters/friendsoftheshelter.html.
    This would be a wonderful time to consider giving a home to one of the animals in the shelter.
    All adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro chipped.

  • Buzzer-beater lifts LA over Sandia

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team earned a big win over the Class 5A Sandia Matadors at home Friday night.

    With no time left on the clock, Hilltopper guard Anna Scott buried a long-range 3-pointer to sink the Matadors.

    The Matadors (10-4) tied the game with under 15 seconds left on the clock 43-43, but Scott got a step against her defender to the right of the key and buried a NBA-range 3 at the buzzer to give the Hilltoppers a 46-43 win.

    It was the first victory for new Los Alamos head coach Ann Stewart.

    More information on the game will be in Sunday’s Los Alamos Monitor.
