  • Welcome to interactive media, albeit a bit old school.
    Earlier this week, I was at a meeting where we discussed what ties you to your school. The question isn’t rhetorical. I really want to know.
    I don’t care if it was when you were in school or now that your kids or grandkids are in school, what is it that makes you fond of the place?
    I really want the answer and will give you several ways to tell me. I would also like to know if you don’t have that tie or fondness and what caused it to become that way?
    I don’t want to tell you my thoughts, but I’m interested to know if they are similar.

  • The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on-site adoptable pets; others are in foster care with loving, temporary homes.
    All of our fully reconditioned adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro-chipped.
    Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  
    We get lots of roaming cats and dogs. Don’t assume your cat was a meal for a coyote. Check with the shelter and see if your best friend is bunking with us. Proof of rabies vaccination is required when claiming your pet.

  • It takes a special kind of lawman to carry on for 20 years in the Wild West of TV.

    Matt Dillon, the mythical marshal of Dodge City, stood tall — all 6 feet, 6 inches of him — on "Gunsmoke" from 1955 to 1975. He outlasted dozens of other Western heroes while making history on TV's longest-running dramatic series, a record that held until NBC's "Law & Order" tied the CBS Western's record in 2010.

    Through all those gunslinging years, James Arness, who died Friday, kept Marshal Dillon righteous, peace-seeking and, most of all, believable.
