  • LAPS bands help connect the community

    During April, we have been working on the asset category of “Constructive Use of Time.”
    This category contains Assets 17-20 and kicks off with, “Creative Activities.”
    Creative activities are defined as: “Young person spends three or more hours per week in lessons or practice in music, theater or other arts.”
    Spring break offered us a nice taste of actually having time to do something constructive.
    The break neck speed is about to start and we’ll soon arrive at summer.

  • A great day for the YMCA

  • Fashion 411: Every shoe closet needs the basics

    Shoes: More Important Than You Thought
    I am a complete sucker for shoes. Honestly, if I could live in my heels, I would. But, of course, heels are hard to walk in and shoes are hard to find. I know, finding the right pair is a big dilemma, but I have a few tips that will land you the perfect pair.
    First of all, every shoe closet should consist of a few types of basic shoes. Flats, pumps, peep-toe heels, embellished heels, gladiator sandals and boots are the bare essentials.

    Dress Up

    A little girl skips around
    with nothing to do one afternoon.
    So she sneaks into the closet
    within her mother's room.

    She looks around at all the clothes
    of colors of all kinds.
    She giggles and claps with excitement
    as she sees what she can find.

    She lets her imagination swirl
    as she throws on a pink dress.
    She stands up straight with a book on her head
    -being a pretty pink princess.

    She puts on a raincoat and boots,
    twirls an umbrella on her shoulder,
    singing and dancing in the rain
    -like nothing can control her.

  • Technology is gr8! Or is it?

    According to a quote by Mark Kennedy, “All of the biggest technological inventions created by man — the airplane, the automobile, the computer — says little about his intelligence, but speaks volumes about his laziness.” 
    Technology has become a big part of a teenager’s daily life. It allows teens to do things that were not even considered possible a few decades ago.
    Grandparents will tell their grandchildren overly exaggerated stories of how they walked so many miles to school in the snow because cars weren’t invented yet.
    Today, cell phones and computers provide instant communication, but has texting taken over teens’ lives?

  • Legacy vs. financial stability

    The headline on the front page of Wednesday’s Los Alamos Monitor, “Intern housing bleak on Hill” made me want to say, “You think?”
    The destruction of housing on Central Avenue has seriously contributed to the lack of housing for Los Alamos National Laboratory summer students as well as those who work at low paying jobs and need affordable housing.  
    Councilors Fran Berting and Jim Hall said in February  2008 that the county was purchasing the Central Avenue property with money from the Self-Sufficiency Fund to clean it up and put it into the hands of a private developer.
