By Kristen Lasky

It does not seem to be a stretch to say U.S. President John F. Kennedy and Bernard “Bun” Ryan, a Los Alamos Living Treasure, Pierotti’s Clowns softball player and long-time Democrat, share more than a few similarities.

It’s not just the political affiliation. Civic work, community responsibility and profound impacts are other parallels. Plus, Ryan worked on Kennedy’s election campaign. So it seems fitting that the Los Alamos Democratic Party would honor Ryan with a JFK Banquet Democratic

Transit of Venus Viewing Options for Tuesday

From 4 to sunset, Tuesday June 5, Los Alamos will be treated to a rare “transit of Venus” when the planet comes so precisely between the sun and the earth that its image can be seen crossing the solar disk.

Venus is small enough that a telescope (equipped with a special filter to reduce brightness) will be needed.
