By Roger Snodgrass

SANTA FE – Competing views on the future of Los Alamos National Laboratory are vying for public attention this week.Over the weekend, community leaders from surrounding communities joined a coalition of activist organizations to prepare for a series of public hearings sponsored by the Department of Energy next week.On Wednesday and Friday, the lab’s weapons program directorate will sponsor tours for community leaders of facilities that figure in the transformational plans for the nuclear weapons complex.Santa Fe Mayor David Coss led the speakers at a press conference Saturday morning at the Genoveva Chavez Community Center.“Nuclear weapons production does not help us in creating the future that we want,” he said, calling instead for the “incredible people and incredible talent” of Los Alamos to help free the world of nuclear weapons and help solve the energy crisis.Coss acknowledged that the Santa Fe governing body had been criticized for passing a resolution on Feb.
