Scenes From ‘They Changed The World: People Of The Manhattan Project’ Book Signing At Bradbury Museum

Author aj Melnick missed the signing Saturday for her book, ‘They Changed the World: People of the Manhattan Project’, due to illness. Pajarito Press publishers Nancy Bartlit and Mark Rayburn were on hand however, signing books at the Bradbury Science  Museum. They will transport books to Santa Fe so Melnick can sign them, then return them for pickup at the Bradbury. Hopefully, the book signing can be rescheduled at a future date. Photo by Bonnie Gordon/

Fr. Glenn: Being A Candle In Darkness

By Fr. Glenn Jones

Begging your attention a moment: consider the division sign: ÷

It could rather symbolize two persons divided by a fence, couldn’t it? Perhaps that was the intent of its original design of its symbolism of division. But, the sadness is … though both dots/persons are identical, one is lower than the other … that barrier of division between them preventing communication or, perhaps, even unification.

Not so unlike us humans, wouldn’t you say? Though we outwardly lament divisions, we tend to cultivate them nonetheless—the “other” person being “lower” or “inferior” in one way

Daily Postcard: Full Flower Blue Moon Spotted Saturday

This shot of the Full Flower Blue Moon was taken about 3:40 a.m. Saturday in White Rock. A Blue Moon rarely appears blue in the sky, and the name actually has little to do with its color. Usually, a full moon occurs just once a month. Sometimes—about every three years or so—one month will have two full moons. This phenomenon is what is called a Calendrical Blue Moon. But that’s not the case this May. According to the Farmers’ Almanac, each of the four seasons typically contains three full moons. However, sometimes a season will have four. When that happens, the third full moon of that season

Letter To The Editor: Pride Festival … Offers Place For Students To Be Themselves

By Gwyneth Lyons
LAHS 9th Grader
FLAP Council Member

The LGBTQ+ Pride Festival organized by Friends of Los Alamos Pride (FLAP) has been a great addition to the town.

Specifically for youth, this festival, and the organization overall, has been extremely beneficial by giving kids the opportunity to learn more about the LGBTQ+ community. This gives students, from elementary to high school, a place to be themselves, learn about the history of pride, and so much more.

For several years, the high school GSA (Genders and Sexuality Alliance) has worked to make the town more inclusive of queer youth,
