Love thy neighbor

-A A +A
By The Staff

A caring neighborhood is the goal this week, as we look at asset #4.

I really hope you have a caring neighborhood and you would think that most people here do.

Our local data shows that only 39 percent of our kids feel that way. That’s is just on track with the national percentage, too. Really? Los Alamos?

I think that is an easy fix, but we all have to work together.

Your neighbors could be, should be, the ones that help you out when the chips are down. Do you even know yours? When a pipe breaks or the vehicle breaks down, your neighbors just might be the ones you call in your hour of need.

They could also be the ones that water your plants when you’re away or take in your mail, even when they knew you had it stopped.

Recently, one of our neighbors on our street moved away. We like to joke that you need to have a document signed by the neighborhood before you’re allowed leave the street. She forgot that part of the homeowner’s agreement.

We’ll call her Sherry – was the matriarch of the street. While the term matriarch has an older connotation to it, for us, she was the one with the oldest kids.

She was the one we queried as the kids got older, trying to see the next stage that might befall us all.
