At 52, Juliana is a brilliant drug-company scientist. She is giving a speech at a neurological convention.

As she speaks, we cut away to scenes with her doctor, phone calls from her estranged daughter and conversations with her husband.

Los Alamos

 

How can you help someone who doesn’t want help? Director Ramin Bahrani takes on this classic frustration in “Goodbye Solo” (2008, rated R), screening at 6:30 p.m. today in Mesa Public Library’s upstairs meeting-room theater.

 

Set in director’s home state of North Carolina, this award-winning film, which NY Times film critic A.O. Scott calls “almost perfect,” follows the multiple attempts of a cab driver to save his passenger’s life.

Smart Design With Suzette: How To Arrange Flowers Like A Pro

on February 27, 2017 - 9:18am

Los Alamos
 
I am a lover of flowers; ever since I was a little girl, I would bring in cut lilacs from our property and arrange them throughout the house.
 
As I grew, wherever I moved, I made sure to have flowers planted that I could cut and bring in.
 
I always loved how cheery they made a room feel. I would have to say my favorite flowers are lilacs, gardenias, white roses, peonies and lily of the valley.
