LAFD relaxes fire restrictions for county
Los Alamos County’s Fire Department announced last weekend it has relaxed the county’s fire restrictions.
The decision was based on several factors, including moisture received from seasonal rains, rising humidity and reduction in fuel ignition potential among those.
According to a press release, the fire department will continue to work with the U.S. Forest Service, Los Alamos National Laboratory’s emergency management and the National Park Service to monitor local conditions.
Five winners get free flights on N.M. Airlines
The winners were announced in July’s free flight giveaway, sponsored by New Mexico Airlines.
The winners included Joseph Baiardo, Mary Barrus, Steve Ciddio, Opal Lee Gill and Clifford Hewitt.
New Mexico Airlines, which is under contract to Los Alamos County, provides commercial airline service between Los Alamos Airport and the Albuquerque Sunport.
Winners in July’s drawing were selected at random. Entrants completed a survey about air travel during Atomic City Transit rides to and from the Overlook Park fireworks show July 4 or during the Gordon’s Summer Concert July 11.
More than 800 entries were received in the drawing.
