Today's Features

  • You might not like the column today, because it invokes the fusspot in me.
    What tipped the scale was some time spent out this weekend. A mother was picking flowers outside a county building and giving them to her daughter.
    No, she didn’t ask anyone if she could pick the flowers, she just took them.
    I’m also not talking about the child being an 18-month-old that doesn’t know that this would be wrong. This child was old enough to know that you shouldn’t pick flowers that you don’t own.
    It comes down to responsibility — and the times when adults do things that are wrong, that clearly make an impression on our youth.

  • Hofstra University Law School,  Hempstead, N.Y. announces that Patricia Yvette Medina, daughter of Victor and Patricia Medina of Los Alamos, was named to the dean’s list for the 2012 Semester. She is concurrently working on a Juris Doctor degree and a master’s degree.

  • The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of onsite adoptable pets waiting for their forever home. 

    Come find a companion that will give you unconditional love. Be sure to visit lafos.org, where you can get more information about volunteering, adopting and donating. All adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro chipped.

  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank your community and one of your residents. I became lost in Los Alamos last week when driving across Northern New Mexico. Near the intersection where Diamond Drive ends and (I think) San Ildefonso Road, I stopped to ask for directions. Not only was I given directions, this group escorted me to Trinity Drive and made sure I was heading in the right direction. 

  • The following births were reported at Los Alamos Medical Center:

     

    June 4: A boy, Deven Joey Donald Garcia, born to DeNae Montoya and Donald Garcia

  • Steve Stoddard, a member of the original trustees of the Valles Caldera who attended many meetings to decide the fate of the Caldera, was given a per diem stipend. 

    Rather than spend that money on his family, he placed it in an account. 

  • Today

  • Recently, Mary Brooks and the Friends of the Senior Center unveiled their new memorial plaque. Residents can be memorialized at the Senior Center for a donation of $25 or more. Those interested to learn more can contact Pauline Powell Schneider at 662-8920.

  • An outdoor pool is the place to be as temperatures soar in New Mexico, under the toasty summer sun.
    Several pools located in Los Alamos and White Rock boast memberships that keep things humming during swim season.
    Piñon Park Pool is just one of the locations that offer memberships for sale and rent to community members here for the summer or here to stay.
    The Bryce Avenue location is centrally located in White Rock, just a short distance from the White Rock Branch Library, White Rock Senior Center and more.
    Membership Chair Connie Goettee praises her fellow board members with accomplishing the daily tasks and activities to keep the pool in prime condition.
