  • Challacombe having big 2014 season

     For many years, the Los Alamos Hillopper girls track and field team has relied heavily on its stars to shine brightest in the biggest meets of the season.

    The team now may have found its star for 2014.

    After a solid first 6 weeks of the year, junior Chelsea Challacombe had a breakout meet last Monday against what is usually the toughest competition of any season.
    Challacombe earned a decisive win in the high jump at Monday’s meet, clearing a lifetime best 5 feet, 8 inches, the finished second behind a very formidable foe in the long jump. To top that off, she also took fourth in the 100 meter hurdles.

  • Movie review: ‘Rio 2’ a sequel filled with environmental messages

     

    Colorful, fast and fun, “Rio 2” is sure to delight young audiences. This sequel picks up a few months after the events with which the first Rio left off, with the spix’s macaw Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg) and his family living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

    The majority of the movie takes place deep in the Amazon rainforest, where Blu, his mate Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and their three kids decide to take a family vacation to discover their roots. 

    Along the way they hope to reunite with Blu’s former owner Linda (Leslie Mann) and her orthinologist husband Tulio (Rodrigo Santoro), who are searching for an elusive spix’s mackaw in hopes of finding more of the endangered species. 

    Rafael the toucan (George Lopez), Nico the yellow canary (Jamie Foxx) and Pedro the red-crested cardinal (Will.I.Am) accompany the family. 

  • Teacher feature: Goodwin sees the good in teaching

     

    “Physics is phun” is a popular phrase among the students of Los Alamos High School physics teacher Leroy Goodwin. Spending only one class period in room E-8 reveals exactly why so many students favor the subject.

    The plethora of hands-on projects and demonstrations captures the attention of the learners and generates a connection between teacher and student.

    Goodwin has led a career that defines the epitome of being a teacher. After working at LAHS for 20 years, he has decided to seek retirement.

    He received his teaching degree at the University of New Mexico and had not originally planned to pursue teaching but “eventually (came) to it” when working as a construction foreman.

  • Coming to terms: Document spells out investor, owner relationships

     

    An entrepreneur who’s ready to let investors contribute equity to her promising venture needs to shape an agreement that allows others to share in the rewards, but lets her retain significant control over her creation. 

    The rough draft of that agreement is called a term sheet. It’s essentially the template for the legal contract that ultimately spells out the responsibilities and relationships of business partners.

    Commonly used by professionals during pre-investment negotiations, a term sheet can also be used by small-business owners to discuss terms with investors, including friends and family members. The document aims to protect the interests of all parties to the deal and prevent the disputes that can destroy personal and professional relationships if things don’t work out as expected.
