School board nixes fine print

-A A +A
By Gabriel Vasquez

Although the pending approval of a lease resolution with Los Alamos National Laboratory took up the bulk of Tuesday’s school board meeting, a presentation given by teachers of the Career Tech program at Los Alamos High School managed to steal the spotlight.

Board members along with Charlotte Hetherington, a Santa Fe attorney hired by the district to bargain with LANL, protracted negotiations over existing sites that Los Alamos Public Schools leases to the lab, which include the Mesa, Pueblo, Pajarito and Canyon sites.

A careful examination of the resolution’s wording, which would essentially authorize the renewal of leases between the two parties, was the main focus of the discussion.

Regarding the language of the resolution drafted by Hetherington, board member Alison Beckman commented, “This is very confusing. It seems very slanted towards the lab.”

“It is slanted toward the lab,” Hetherington said. “This is the language that has been in the lease since the time the original leases were entered into. Because these leases have such a short time left, the decision was that we should work only on those provisions of the lease that need changing because they were contrary to state law or they didn’t make any sense.”
