A major step forward

The signing of the Trinity Site Revitalization Project agreement by the school board Thursday is a positive step forward for our community.

In its unanimous vote to affirm a partnership with the county, school board members took a step toward the future.

While we believe that there are still many questions and issues here, this project is what the county has basically banked its future on and we need to move ahead.

Doing nothing is worse than trying something.

School board President Joan Ahlers deserves real accolades here as she put in a lot of time on this and really helped move it forward.

Ahlers, who has been the lead negotiator on behalf of the schools since her election in 2006, worked tirelessly with then Superintendent James Anderson and current  Superintendent Mary McLeod.

All of them deserve praise.

Those folks, along with County Administrator Max Baker and Assistant County Administrator Tony Mortilaro, worked hard to craft a document detailing the principles of a partnership between the schools and the county.

The county council is expected to add its signature to the partnership at its April 7 meeting.

This is good news for Los Alamos and should signal a time for the hoped-for new beginning of our community.
