Bracelets raise
cancer awareness

The Los Alamos High School Student Council is selling different-colored bracelets to raise awareness for cancer. Each color represents different types of cancer. The bracelets will be on sale at LAHS in the Auxiliary Gym lobby everyday at lunch for $2 each. The proceeds will benefit cancer research. While they are hoping to raise some money, their primary focus is to make students aware of these types of cancers and their effects. The colors include; blue, teal or white, purple and pink, representing prostate, cervical, testicular and breast cancer.

Computers needed

The Espanola YMCA is in need of computers. The students use them to do their homework and research. Those who have a computer, hard drive or monitor to donate should call Ben Sandoval at 747-6569 or send an e-mail to teencenter@laymca.org.
