    The End of the Road

    The end of the game is near
    They may not win
    Paranoia begins to set in
    This is where legends are made
    The mamba gets the ball
    Maybe they can be saved
    The team’s future is in his hands
    You can’t hear anything over the turbulent screams of the fans
    Oh No! The Mamba gets double-teamed
    He fades away 3… 2… 1… he makes the shot
    But goes down hard
    He lays there not moving
    Slowly he gets on his feet
    With games to come, they will not 3-peat
    But instead they leave the door open to the Mavs

  • Shelter helps Los Alamos County animals

    Among the shining beacons of hope in Los Alamos is the County Animal Shelter. Located at 500 Knecht Street, the shelter staff is there to help the animals by finding homes for them.
    Animal Control officers drive around town, looking for dogs and cats that are loose. Many lost animals have tags with names and phone numbers, making it easy to find their owners.
    However, others are often found with only their rabies tag, indicating that they’ve been vaccinated for rabies.
    Owners can be traced using the rabies tag, too. When an animal is vaccinated for rabies, it is given a tag with a number on it.
    The Animal Control officers can call the clinic where the shot was given, and using the number,  locate the animal’s owner.

    Ode to Wind

    Oh how you spin and blow with a violent roar
    and dance and swirl and slam the door,
    how you come with spring and never quit,
    how you just can’t seem to dial down a bit.
    And, oh those dust storms that you bring
    getting in my eyes so I can’t see a thing.
    That grit that grinds between my teeth,
    that musty air making it hard to breathe.
    Oh how I love you mighty wind
    with the dirt and dryness that you send
    that cracks my skin so my knuckles bleed
    building up that character that I need.
    Maybe you aren’t all that bad
    though you make me sneeze and itch.
    Perhaps you’ll lift my house off the ground

  • Bell schedule at LAHS is causing some headaches

    The Los Alamos Public School system needs to trim some spending from this year for next year’s budget.
    One proposal for doing this is to change the high school’s bell schedule next year. This would allow the same bus drivers to bus for the grade, middle, and high schools, reducing the number necessary.
    While this could definitely save money, it also could have negative side effects.
    The controversy centers mostly around the planned A/A period at the end of the day.
    This time is meant to replace the time currently allocated before school, for students to go in for help to a teacher in whose class they need it. This plan has definite advantages and disadvantages.

  • Lady Gaga was 'Born This Way' and endured

    The stadium is dark, with the exception of the glow of phones and cameras ready to take her picture. The crowd is hushed with anticipation and excitement. Then, the beats echo over the speakers and the crowd starts screaming. Lights start to flash and huge screens flicker on. She steps out onto stage and her powerful, phenomenal, perfect voice rings around the stadium. The crowd is illuminated and thousands of people are jumping up and down in outrageous costumes, all inspired by her.
    That’s right, Lady Gaga is performing at Madison Square Garden. Her fans, including myself, were able to see it on television.
