Back in the day, it was determined that Los Alamos High School needed a top flight Latin teacher. Thing was, Mrs. Fries had left the east coast for somewhere in the Southwest and no one knew where “somewhere” was going to be.
An all-points bulletin was put out to find her across five states. Well she’s driving along a road in Colorado and gets pulled over by the local sheriff. “No, ma’am,” he said. “You haven’t done anything wrong but could you come down to the station.” She did, the Feds showed up and offered her the job teaching here.
This is what I would call “agressive recruiting.”
I got to thinking about this while trying to get a prescription at Smith’s. Used to be you could get a “scrip” at Hilltop Pharmacy serving Northern Community, Anderson’s serving Western Community, or LA Drugs serving Downtown and Eastern.
Each of these neighborhoods also had a grocery store and full auto service and repair. You would have loved Los Alamos in the ’60s.
