  • What’s up with all that global warming stuff? Temperatures haven’t gone up noticeably since around 2003 or 2004, so perhaps the scare is over and people can get on with other problems?  
    Charles “Chick” Keller will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday at Pajarito Environmental Education Center, addressing these issues. New evidence continues to emerge showing that the Earth is indeed warming and that it’s us. 
    Keller’s talk will take a look at what we know and what still needs to be learned.
    The bottom line is that all the important general issues are now understood, but there remain many secondary issues that we are still exploring. 

  • Four members of the Los Alamos Pony Club will represent the U.S. Pony Club Southwest Region at the USPC National Championships in Lexington, Ky. in mid-July. The site of the competition will be the Kentucky Horse Park, where the 2010 World Equestrian Games were held.
    Megan Reader, 18, daughter of Lisa and Garth Reader, will compete in the multi-sport event of tetrathlon, with scores combined from competition in running, shooting, swimming and jumping a complex course of fences on her horse, Redford.
    Reader, a 2011 graduate of Los Alamos High School, was on the USPC International tetrathlon team in 2010.

  • Welcome Back! Did you spend a portion of the last 10 days building assets? I’ll bet you did! There’s nothing like a huge evacuation to bring a state together.

    The time may not have been spent building the assets in youth, but there was an outpouring of asset building within communities.

  • The Los Alamos Juvenile Justice Advisory Board is up and running after the evacuation and continues to offer services to local youth and families. 

    JJAB aims to engage youth through both prevention and intervention programs.
