  • Free paper shredding offered April 19

     

    Want to celebrate Earth Day while actually doing something to help the Earth?

    RE/MAX of Los Alamos will host a free paper shredding event Saturday, April 19 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its office, located at 116 Central Park Square, Los Alamos, the company announced in a new release.

    All shredded materials will be recycled, according to the release.

    Along with celebrating Earth Day, the event is also an opportunity to tackle spring cleaning projects and destroy documents that, if they fell into the wrong hands, could result in identity theft.

    A large Shred-It truck will be at the location. Up to five boxes of paper will be accepted, including stapled paper.

    During the summer months many teens are on the hunt for jobs. Businesses in Los Alamos recognize this and offer opportunities for students looking for work.  

    Smith’s Food and Drug is currently in the process of hiring 130 employees to staff its new Marketplace, opening in July in Los Alamos.

    “The positions we are looking for varies on the age of our hires and for what we have available. Teens between the ages of 16 and 17 can only be hired as Courtesy Clerks (Baggers) due to equipment operations,” said Elizabeth Maestas, Smith’s Human Resources specialist.  

    Teens interested in applying can fill out all required material online at the Smith’s website.

    Many of us remember those times when half of our closet was scattered across the floor in a frenzy of hopefulness that some good outfit would pop out of the wardrobe, but to no avail.

    These days are tough to deal with, especially if you’re dressing for an important event, or if you’re already late to work and don’t have time to mull over your outfit.
