  • Wedding reception grows into Rave near Camp May

    A couple requested and was granted a permit to hold their wedding at Camp May last Saturday. The wedding took place. The twist in the story is the fact that the couple decided to spread the word to about a thousand of their Facebook friends in an effort to raise money for a honeymoon.

    About 300 people showed up and paid a fee to enter the event Saturday.

    Los Alamos Deputy Police Chief Kevin Purtymun said police conducted additional patrols in the Camp May area near the ski hill Saturday night.

    “We did not receive any calls for service and we did not make any arrests at the event,” Purtymun said.

  • Beware of traveling teeth-whiteners

    A woman walked into the Los Alamos County Community Development Department recently to find out if she was required to be licensed to open a traveling teeth whitening business.

    Her intent was to go door-to-door to homes in Los Alamos and White Rock to administer chemicals into people’s mouths to whiten their teeth.

    “I contacted the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department and found out that the woman not only needed to be licensed, but she also needed to be a dentist,” said Steve Bruegger, the acting director of the CDD.

    Dr. Rick Posada of  Posada Dental Works at 152 Central Park Square has been practicing dentistry for 15 years and his services include teeth whitening.
