Male Spotted Towhee Visits Residence On Barranca Mesa

A male spotted towhee visits the backyard of a residence Monday on Barranca Mesa. The spotted towhee is seen here with the smaller Oregon Junco.Spotted Towhees hop over the ground beneath dense tangles of shrubs, scratching in leaf litter for food. They also climb into lower branches to search for insects and fruits, or to deliver their quick, buzzy song. Towhees can fly long distances, but more often make short, slow flights between patches of cover. Juncos are birds of the ground. They hop around the bases of trees and shrubs in forests or venture out onto lawns looking for fallen seeds. Source:

Fr. Glenn: Living Faith With Conviction

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

Well, a very happy (albeit tardy) Thanksgiving to all of you … obviously much-subdued this year with the pandemic squelching travel and family gatherings, and yet very thankful for all that we DO have. Not to be Pollyannaish, but it is quite true that a joyful heart and countenance relieve many a woe … recalling the prophet Habakkuk: “Though the fig tree blossom not, nor fruit be on vines/though the yield of the olive fail and the terraces produce no nourishment, / Though the flocks disappear from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls / yet will I rejoice in the Lord, and exult

Tales Of Our Times: Campaigns Ably Conceal The Problem As A Whole

Campaigns Ably Conceal The Problem As A Whole

Year after year, election ballots list choices in boxes that direct us to “Vote For One”. To train voters in this mindset, election campaigns tell about some mighty problems in the news and say which part of some problem they would fix.

One side campaigns to protect peaceful protest. The other side campaigns to stop the riots, looting, and arson that are seen interrupting peace. The problem we face is how to protect the cherished right to peaceful protest while halting riots,

By BECKY RUTHERFORD
Los Alamos

So everything this year is a bit of a dumpster fire and it turns out you can’t even trust that jolly old elf himself, Santa. Er… that is to say Santa is probably still legit, but if you get an unsolicited email in your inbox offering to sell you a “handwritten letter from Santa” for $19.99, don’t click the link!

The latest phishing scam is an offer for a lovely, handwritten letter from Santa, the “perfect” gift for all. The Los Angeles City Attorney’s office was the first to warn about this scam, “Don’t click on the link,” City Attorney Mike Feuer said last week. “In the best

Local Mailman Steven Sanderson Goes Above And Beyond

By Linda and Robert Hull
Los Alamos

My husband and I would like to thank our mailman, Steven Sanderson, for going above and beyond the call of duty on his route last week. 

While delivering mail in the block south of us, he noticed two large FedEx boxes by a cluster of mailboxes. The packages were addressed to us and had been misdelivered. 

Although it was not his responsibility to notify us, he called us, and we were able to resolve the matter.

If it weren’t for Mr. Sanderson’s thoughtfulness and his concern about the patrons on his route, it’s unlikely we would know the fate of our order.
