  • Trails are open and on the mend

    Los Alamos County Open Space Specialist Craig Martin pores over a map of the trail system surrounding Los Alamos. Most of the trails are marked in pink, an indicator of unrepaired damage from the Las Conchas fire. A few small areas have a bold red line over them, highlighting sections where repairs have been completed.

    Martin does not appear to be overwhelmed by the task ahead of him, in spite of the fact that this is the second time he has been through this. Martin led trail recovery efforts after the Cerro Grande fire 12 years ago.

  • Trujillo ready for challenges

    Los Alamos National Laboratory employee and Nambé resident Carl Trujillo beat out Santa Fe mayor David Coss in the Democratic primary election earlier this month. The contenders were vying to fill House District 46 seat left vacant by Speaker of the House Ben Lujan

    Trujillo, 45, will take a seat in the legislature next year as no GOP candidate ran in the primary. Trujillo won the June 5 primary by 206 votes.

    But this wasn’t Trujillo’s first stab at public office: In 2008, Trujillo nearly beat Lujan in the primary but lost by 84 votes.

    The 27-year lab employee said he’s been living in the Rio Grande Valley his entire life.
