Quite a week in Los Alamos

-A A +A
By Ralph Damiani

There were three momentous events in Los Alamos last week, two good and one not so good.


First was the school bond election. The fact that it passed by a decent majority says a lot for the folks who live here.


When presented with a positive plan, the community will back it. There was no doubt that our schools need work and improvements. We have one of the best school districts around but nothing stays at the top without some kind of investment.


This was a needed investment. And yes, no one likes  to pay taxes and we are very fearful that our taxes are going to be going up all over the place.


But here, the increase will go for a good cause, it will be used wisely and it will be a benefit.


We should all take pride in the fact that this passed and we should all continue to work together for the betterment of our schools and our community.


The second event was the selection of Ralph Phelps to sit on the county council.


We cannot argue with this choice; Phelps is a good man who has served this community on the Utilities Board and has made a good impact on that body.


He knows the community and is known by it. He was the safe choice.
