  • Los Alamos, White Rock have mild month

    October was cold and wet, but November was the opposite with dry and mild conditions throughout, save for two minor storms. Mean temperatures in Los Alamos were nearly five degrees above normal and the precipitation total at month’s end was merely one quarter of an inch, about one fifth of what we expect in November in Los Alamos.

  • Clinic set for Saturday

    The Los Alamos Public Health Office, in conjunction with Los Alamos Public Schools, will conduct a free, one-time-only H1N1 (Swine Flu) vaccination clinic for Los Alamos and White Rock school-aged children (pre-K through 12).

    The clinic will run from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at White Rock Fire Station #3 across from the Hampton Inn on SR 4.

  • LACDC reveals new team concept

    Hiring Suzette Fox as its community projects coordinator is part of a wider plan underway at the Los Alamos Commerce & Development Corporation (LACDC).

    With Fox’s arrival, LACDC has taken the opportunity to implement a team approach to managing all of its projects.

  • Tuesday's School Board Meeting Canceled

    The school board meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m. today is canceled due to the winter storm.

     

  • In wake of winter storm travel remains treacherous

    The punishing winter storm that rolled through the Los Alamos area Monday night and Tuesday has moved on to wreak havoc in the midwest Wednesday. The temperature here was a bone-chilling 11 degrees at 6 a.m. and county plows had already been at work for hours.

    Los Alamos Public Schools and Los Alamos National Laboratory appear to be ready to return to regular schedules today, despite the fact that many secondary roads still remain snow-packed. Temperatures today are not expected to get above freezing, so the snow on the roads now will remain unless plows remove it.

  • Employees to place wreaths at cemetery

    To help honor the nation’s veterans Los Alamos National Laboratory employees are volunteering to place wreaths at gravesites in Santa Fe National.

    Volunteers are asked to meet at the cemetery at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, to be assigned sections within the cemetery.

    Family members also are welcome and parking is available at the cemetery.

    The 18th annual Wreaths Across America is an offshoot of Arlington National Cemetery’s annual laying of 5,000 holiday wreaths there.

  • Revisiting streets standards

    “It’s amazing what you can do to create vibrancy with your street design,” said Marsha Kaiser, the Director of the PlaceMaking Group of Parsons Brinkerhoff. The presentation about the “Complete Street” concept sparked a full discussion at the county council meeting in White Rock Tuesday.

  • Center gets homegrown attention

    What does an accomplished young student of architecture who is a native of Los Alamos do when he’s not out winning awards?

    Antonio Vigil, who graduated from the UNM School of Architecture and Planning in May, is bringing at least some of his skills back home.

    Among current projects, he is now involved in the White Rock Visitors Center, working with Mullen Heller Architects in Albuquerque as an intern.

    The firm has the contract for the visitors center and also designed the new Animal Shelter on East Road, which will open next week.
