  • Sometimes, I try to write something. In fact, I do write something. I write line after line until I’ve got paragraphs. I spend several minutes, or even hours, before I realize my mistake, my monstrous mistake. It’s one I make repeatedly on blank screens and pieces of paper: I write a bunch of crap.

    This wouldn’t be such a problem if only people enjoyed reading crap. But they have much better things to do.

  • In recognition of National Young Readers Week, which began Monday, the staff of Los Alamos Public Schools is eager to host Family Literacy Night on Thursday at Chamisa Elementary School

  • A pop tab is more than what it seems. It may look like a small, insignificant piece of metal but it can help make a difference in someone’s life.

    For instance, the VFW recently  donated the recycling proceeds to the American Veterans Cancer Fund.

    The fund received a hefty donation from Los Alamos High School freshman  Valerie Warthen, who donated 16 bags of pop tabs to VFW Post 8874.
