  • Lots of people want to be famous. Most of us aren’t even close. But some of us are almost.

  • It is done. That statement is very illuminating, for you, me, the community, even Oprah Winfrey. Those three simple words, pretty much sum up a lot this week.
    My question is, where did the time go?
    Most students will look ahead to the next school year, some thinking about the fact that “next year,” they just might be attending high school for the first time.
    Our seniors graduated and everyone moved one more rung up the ladder. Some Hawks became Hilltoppers Friday afternoon, with their right of passage at Urban Park. The big event marks not only their relationship ending with Los Alamos Middle School, but the possibilities that lie ahead as the newest members of the Hilltopper family.

  • Before her death from a brain tumor in December 2009, Julie Meadows and her family got all sorts of practical help from friends and fellow church members, organized as “Julie’s Helpers.”
    A year and a half later, it’s a scholarship fund with the same name, “Julie’s Helpers,” which is carrying on the helping legacy, in Meadows’ memory. Only now, it’s a young Navajo mom who is getting the help — $2,500 worth, for college expenses — from the fund’s first award.

  • Agnes Vallejos envisions a world without Alzheimer’s disease. Born and raised in Los Alamos, Vallejos is executive director of the Alzheimer’s Association New Mexico Chapter where she manages a statewide team of professionals who support Alzheimer’s patients and caregivers and raise funds to help find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease through research.
     After graduation from University of New Mexico, Vallejos stayed in New Mexico to work with emotionally disabled children and adolescents in psychiatric settings, residential treatment centers and treatment foster care programs.
