  • Threats to Jemez Forests focus of workshop

    I attended a Desired Condition Workshop last week.  The workshop was a joint effort of the Ecological Restoration Institute at Northern Arizona University, the Forest and Watershed Institute at New Mexico Highlands University and the Colorado Forest Restoration Institute at Colorado State University. The focus was on the changing forest management policies based on current forestry science. The workshop included morning presentations, a field trip in the Grants area and field trips in the Jemez.    
    Based on this workshop and the developing changes in forest policy, I can’t emphasize enough the need for local residents to get involved.

Gutierrez was invited to join the Fuller Lodge Historic Districts Advisory Board and serve on the Homestead Tour subcommittee when the project began. He served as liaison to the homesteader descendants.

  • Agnew recounts lab's early days

    During a Director’s Classified Colloquium May 10, former Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory Director Harold Agnew spent more than two hours recalling his history with Los Alamos from the very beginnings of the Manhattan Project, through his nine-year directorship that ended in 1979.

    He displayed a remarkable ability to remember names, rattling off whole lists of people who worked on projects with him more than 60 years ago.

    Agnew spoke of practical jokes and Washington hijinks that drew laughter throughout the talk, that was formatted as discussion with laboratory historian Alan Carr and Glen McDuff of Surety Systems Engineering (W-16).
