  • The best little town ever

    When sons and daughters are serving overseas in combat zones, the days can be difficult and time seems to go on forever, from one letter or phone call to the next. Folks often ask, “how do you get through it?” We get through it with the help of all the kind and wonderful people of Los Alamos.
    The outpouring of kind thoughts, caring words and the amazing generosity of all of you, with donations every week so that we can send packages to the troops at FOB Finley Shields in Afghanistan, has been overwhelmingly joyful.
    Here are a few replies from the troops serving there:

  • Megan Goldstein of Los Alamos participated in Gonzaga University’s graduation exercises during a Commencement Ceremony held May 8 in Spokane’s Veterans’ Memorial Arena. Goldstein graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in science and mathematics.
