Today, the Los Alamos Monitor turns 50.
The first edition of the newspaper was produced with typewriters, a headline machine, four employees and all the work was done in rented offices above a jewelry store.
And what was in that first edition?
The lead story was about 85 Los Alamos residents who placed $250 each in a Pajarito Site Trust Fund.
Another top story detailed the resignation of Los Alamos police chief Jesse L. Rose, who was resigning his $10,000 a year job to take a post in Ecuador. The Los Alamos Monitor reported that a search for Rose’s replacement was underway.
At the top of the page, there was a photo of two Los Alamos youths, who were on their way to school, but got sidetracked and started writing their names in the snow.
On that first front page of the Los Alamos Monitor, there were 16 headlines.
