  • Trail recovery could take years

    The images were disheartening: acres of charred trees and scorched earth, trails buried by rockslides and piles of debris. The work entailed in restoring trails damaged by the Las Conchas fire and subsequent flooding is monumental.

    At a Wednesday meeting, Los Alamos County Open Space Specialist Craig Martin and Bandelier National Monument Trails Program Manager Dale Coker detailed the current state of area trails and discussed plans for restoring them.

    Despite some extremely damaged areas, county and national forest trails came through the crisis fairly well. All county system trails are open, although many within the Santa Fe National Forest are closed or only partially open.

  • $8.7M Teen Center gets unanimous nod

    Nearly 100 people were on hand to voice support for the Teen Center’s Capital Improvement Project (CIP) phase two application. The vast majority were teens, many of whom will graduate before a center can even be built.

    CIP Chair Gary Leikness has been impressed by that support since the process started. “I personally appreciate the leadership that the students are providing to the younger students. Some of them will move on and never occupy it.”

  • Smart House to become permanent structure

    The Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously approved a request to amend the site plan for a 2,418 square foot “smart house.” The structure will now be built as a permanent structure rather than a temporary one.

    The original plan, approved in June 2011, was to place the house on piers so it could be sold and moved after the two to four year demonstration period. The piers would also have required minimal alteration to area drainage.

    However, cost estimates revealed that “the modular nature of the construction escalated the costs dramatically.”

  • Hard-fought custody battle nears an end

    After a four-year child custody battle, a local father is one step closer to gaining custody of his daughter.

    The Utah Supreme Court rendered an opinion earlier this year giving Los Alamos resident Robert Manzanares the green light to pursue custody of his daughter reversing an earlier district court ruling denying him from his parental rights to the child.

    “I’ve come a long way and spent a lot of money to get to this point and the end result is that my daughter and I will be together - I have no doubt about that,” Manzanares said.
