  • Bun Ryan honored with John F. Kennedy Award

    Bernard (Bun) Ryan, was awarded the John F. Kennedy award recently by the Los Alamos Democratic Party.
    Ryan has lived the ideals that JFK professed.
    John Kennedy believed that, “If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.” He believed that the small numbers of Americans who have resources have representatives in Washington to protect their interests, but that it was the responsibility of the President of the United States to protect the others. JFK espoused a basic tenet of the Democratic Party: it is only through working together, private and public, neighbor and stranger that we will be truly prosperous. For these reasons we honored him.  May 29 would have been his 95th birthday.

  • Councilors debate duties of clerk, sheriff

    The most surprising thing about Tuesday night’s county council meeting was the lack of public comment on proposed charter amendments, including the hotly contested issue of the sheriff’s role. The only public comment came from Charter Review Committee (CRC) members clarifying specific issues.

    However, council’s debates on some CRC recommendations mirrored previous arguments among committee members and the public.

    That was most apparent in the divide over the sheriff’s office. Councilor Francis Berting made a motion that was seconded by councilor Mike Wismer, in a move that would transfer the sheriff’s duties to the Los Alamos Police Department and eliminate the position.
