Mortillaro breaks silence
Former County Administrator Tony Mortillaro has written a letter to the community. Look for it on Sunday’s opinion page in the Los Alamos Monitor.

Settlement approved
Word is that Judge Barbara Vigil signed the order Monday approving the settlement that local attorneys Christine and George Chandler reached with the  county council halting an election on the question posed in a petition regarding the location of the new municipal building.

Chandlers to speak out
George and Christine Chandler have prepared a rather lengthy op-ed piece, which they have come to think of as a primer on the whole muni building/petition/election subject.  They have, in addition to a straightforward description and some history of the process,  addressed a number of the misconceptions that have floated about the town in recent months.
Black Hole reality show
As seen on losalamosnetwork.com, the Black Hole is thriving and has even had interest from “some reality TV folks” and “some folks that will have an archaeology show on this spring about a special item at the Black Hole.” Also, some 500,000 pounds of materials have been removed from the Black Hole including 120,000 pounds of scrap metal and 380,000 pounds of electronics and other materials.
New year new beginning
Word on the street is that longtime local stylist Mark Hamilton has left Monica’s Hair Salon to start his own business, “HairZart” in the Mary Deal Building.
Double wag…
Betty Cox actually gets credit for naming Pajarito Cliffs rather than Dr. Ann Wadsrom as previously wagged here.
