  • I have to confess, I am very excited about the new Smith’s Marketplace opening this week, aren’t you?
    I think I may visit long after the “rush hour” traffic, when things have calmed down and are a bit slower. I want to be able to take it all in at a slower pace.
    One reason I am excited about the new Smith’s is for more money to stay local.
    One former Los Alamos Commerce & Development Corporation Director, Kevin Holsapple, used to give an excellent presentation about how spending money off the Hill was similar to holes in a bucket of water. The leaking water represented the drip, dribble, or flow of money going off the hill.
    When we keep our money local, more community programs benefit from our spending.
    So whether those are library or parks and rec programs, free busses, teen center or Assets programs, your spending allows more things to happen locally. In this time of budget cuts, that is particularly important, but I’ll save that for another column.
    My column isn’t really just about spending locally, but also about loyalty.
    For those that don’t know me very well, I’m a White Rocker. That’s right; I live twice as far from Los Alamos as you live from White Rock.

    Bindi — A 10-month-old, spayed, female, tabby with white. She came to Los Alamos Shelter from Taos Animal Shelter. This petite girl loves to play, but she also enjoys taking naps in the sun once she’s worn out from playing. She is a very small kitty, and most likely will remain petite. Initially shy, she has now warmed up, thriving on making new kitty friends and greeting shelter visitors.
