Today's Features

  • The possibility of espionage in a laboratory town is a very real threat. It’s hard not to imagine that spies are lurking and working in towns like Los Alamos.
    Former Los Alamos National Laboratory physicist and author Michael Gamble brings those fears to life in his book, “Zeroscape.”
    A modern-day espionage thriller set in Los Alamos and Santa Fe, “Zeroscape” follows Richard Adams, a disgraced professor from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. LANL has recruited Adams, “verifying the operability of a post-Soviet Republic’s gamma ray laser,” according to a description of “Zeroscape.”

  • The Piñon sixth grade leadership team planted spinach and lettuce with the Los Alamos Youth Food Project, before heading off for spring break last week. The State Farm Youth Advisory Board-funded project has a goal to plant with each elementary school in Los Alamos.

  • Thank you, Steve and Judi Brownell, for all the memories

    March 30 was a bittersweet day for the Los Alamos community and the Brownells.
    This is the day that Steve and Judi Brownell closed Brownell’s Hallmark store. We are happy for them because they can now retire, move close to their children/grandchildren and enjoy life. We are also very sad to see them go.  
    Brownell’s Hallmark was not just a store, it was a memory maker.  
    Shortly after they bought the Hallmark store, they had an open house for Easter and allowed the local children to take their photo with the Easter Bunny.

  • Los Alamos Public Schools is working with Bernadette Lauritzen, of Champions of Youth Ambitions (C’YA) to assist with the application process for the 100 Best Communities for Young People, through America’s Promise.
     Los Alamos received this recognition in an effort spearheaded by Vanessa de los Santos, (of the Coffee Booth). The process will once again be assisted by the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce.
    The effort is asking anyone that offers a program or opportunity for youth (of any age) to email information about their programs, with a point of contact.  
    The community can send information as soon as possible or leave messages at the contact information below:
    Lauritzens@att.net or 661-4846.

  • Chris Morris of the Los Alamos National Laboratory Proton Radiography Program will speak at the April 17 dinner meeting of the Major Gen. Franklin E. Miles Chapter 229 of the Military Order of World Wars.
    The meeting will be at the Best Western Hilltop House Hotel, third floor and will begin with a social period at 6 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting and dinner at 6:25 p.m. Morris’ talk will begin at about 7:15 p.m.
    The dinner entrée is chicken parmesan on bed of fettuccini, with vegetables, garlic bread and salad. Cost of the dinner is $23 per person.

  • Mountain Elementary School launched the Great American Can Roundup. Above, the Green Team is pictured with the mountain of cans they collected. They urge other Mountain School alumni to donate cans.

  • There’s only 33 days of school left, if you don’t count weekends. So what will you do?
    It isn’t too early to ponder what the summer holds for youth and after some down time, they need something to do.
    There are lots of programs and projects for youth, but usually not a budget to constantly promote them.
    The Los Alamos Youth Food Project will be running full steam ahead, so if gardening is your SPARK, then learn more from The Family YMCA.
    The Bradbury Science Museum usually has fun in store and some youth ambassadors to assist in their educational outreach.
