A community newspaper

-A A +A
By Arin McKenna

Two readers who have subscribed the entire 50 years the Los Alamos Monitor has been in operation also shared their memories.

“It was the only thing in town providing the news aside from a little lab newspaper,” Steve Stoddard said. “The 50th anniversary supplement brought back a lot of memories. I was very interested in that, because we’ve been here that long. Reading those headlines, I was surprised how long ago some of those things happened.”

Stoddard said his headlines might have included more community milestones, like the first fireworks display.

“I helped with that, and we had to bum money off local businesses to make it happen. Now it’s the biggest event in Los Alamos. It’s a big thing for people from a small town like me. It’s a big deal,” Stoddard said. “It’s nice to earmark positive events rather than tragedies.”

Both Stoddard and John Hopkins commented on how important a small town newspaper is.

“I think the Los Alamos Monitor is extremely important for people in the community,” Hopkins said. “It’s important for people to pay attention to what’s going on in the community.
