  • Dog Jog 2012 thank you

    Cool and cloudy weather provided perfect conditions for hearty exercise and the runners and walkers and their eager dogs enjoyed themselves thoroughly at the 15th Annual Dog Jog on April 28.
    This year’s Dog Jog, organized by the Atomic City Roadrunners, the Los Alamos Dog Obedience Club and the Mountain Canine Corps (MC2) search and rescue team raised $11,000 for Friends of the Shelter.  Friends of the Shelter is a nonprofit organization that provides assistance to abandoned animals and to pets and their owners in north central New Mexico.
    Our catastrophic care program pays for veterinary care for sick or injured animals that have no owners or whose owners cannot afford the treatment.

  • If you haven’t had a chance to get over to the polls to vote yet, what are you waiting for?
    Grab the kids and take them with you to demonstrate the value of the process.
    I remember being an 18-year-old and so excited to vote for the first time. I hope today, parents are still encouraging youth to do the same.
    It only takes a few minutes and I think it is important to illustrate that there are many people defending your right to do it. The many service men and women are also working to provide that right for others, as well.
    When we get lost in thinking about how much it costs do things and who gets in trouble for what, we forget one of the things that make us one of the world’s greatest countries: the right to vote.

  • 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 microchipped.

    DOGS
    Conan - Not a barbarian! A year-old male fawn-colored GSD-mix. Slender, long legs. He is still adjusting to the shelter, but is reported to be great with kids and compatible with other dogs. Housebroken.

  • Los Alamos resident Robert Villareal is not only on a mission of faith - but also science.

    In April, he traveled to Valencia, Spain where he gave a presentation and talk as part of  the International Congress on the Holy Shroud. The shroud is said to have been the burial cloth of  Jesus Christ.

    According to a pamphlet from the event, “the Spanish Centre of Sindonology was legalized in the national register center for associations in April 1987.” The CES officially opened on Dec. 18, 1987 and celebrated its 25th anniversary this year.
