    CATS
     
    Mr. Whiskers—A big tabby cat that is about 4 years old. Changes are a bit stressful for him, so he will likely need a little bit of time to adjust to his new home. He can be independent, but he’s also very sweet and likes to snuggle when he’s in the mood! He is okay with mellow cats, but other dominant males sometimes bother him.
    Lemon—A sweet older cat that was left at the front door of the shelter with no information or history. Lemon is currently in foster care receiving treatment for diabetes; her foster home reports that they call her Sugar, since she’s so sweet! When Lemon is feeling better, she’ll be looking for a mellow home that is understanding of the needs of a diabetic cat.

  • One column would never be enough to mention all of the great things that happened last weekend.
    That’s right, on Saturday night, more than 100 people braved the weather conditions to celebrate the annual Community Asset Awards. The evening highlighted a variety of great work being done in the community by those young and young at heart.
    Today, I want to highlight those in the background that do the work and allow others to shine.
    It probably started two months ago, when the current Leadership Los Alamos class, quite possibly the best class, took the idea of a fellow classmate, okay my husband Chad, and helped him run with it.
    The goal was to increase the youth nominations more than ever before, after a year when they were sadly absent from the annual event.
    The good news is they indeed helped us to accomplish that goal with a record 33 youth being celebrated Saturday night. There were even four youth nominated twice for different efforts.
    Technically 94 names were celebrated, representing individuals, clubs, organizations and businesses.  
    Those Leadership Los Alamos students were Kirsten Bell, Kim Sherwood, Desiree Mendonca and Mihaela Popa-Simil.
