Los Alamos Daily Post

Los Alamos Little Theatre's "Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead" opened Friday at the Performing Arts Center. The play, written by Bert V. Royal presents the Peanuts gang from the comic strip during their teenage years. Sex, drugs and rock and roll have hit them hard and they aren’t ready. CB (guess who?) is at the center of the story.

Letter To The Editor: I Have Never Been So Disappointed In Los Alamos

on January 12, 2017 - 5:02pm
By PAIGE RAMSEY
Los Alamos

I have never been so disappointed in Los Alamos as I am now. Dog Sees God is not a play about promoting bullying. This play brings insight into what high schoolers and even adults have to deal with when it comes to bullying.

It is a sad story of a boy who is coming to terms with who he is and how brutal high school can be.

Daily Postcard: Clement & Benner Christmas Window In 1980 After CB FOX Purchased Store

on January 8, 2017 - 5:34am

Daily Postcard: This photo was taken of the Christmas window in 1980, the first Christmas following purchase of the store by CB FOX (July 1979). The Clement & Benner sign, deeply cut into oak, was the first physical improvement CB FOX made to the building. As part of CB FOX's 1991 remodel of the entire storefront, the space, which had been a marquee or sheltered display space and entryway to the double front doors, all of which was exposed on the sidewalk side to the weather good or bad, became enclosed and now comprises the Candy & Gifts area of the store.
