  • Saluting Citizenship Day

    Once a year, we stop arguing about immigration, abortion, taxing the rich, drilling national reserves, and other typical dinner conversations that usually result in throwing food and dishes at each other.
    Once a year, we turn our eyes towards those stars and stripes waving in the distance, and we remember why we’re able to argue over these things.  We have the freedom to disagree.
    Sept. 17 is “Constitution Day,” a day set aside by the U.S. Department of Education to observe and honor the history of our Constitution.  
    On Sept. 17, 1787, the final draft of the Constitution was sent to Congress. Nine months later, (June 21, 1788,) Congress ratified it. So was our country “born” on 9/17/87 or 6/21/88?

  • IMHM offers introduction to Roman Catholic faith

    Each year, the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Los Alamos offers a program designed for adults who are seeking to know more about the living God through an understanding of the mystery Jesus Christ proclaimed. The program is titled, the “Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.”
    Participation is open to everyone, ranging from those who may just be curious to learn what the Catholic Church has to offer, to those who have already responded to the Gospel message and may have participated in other Christian communities, and those lapsed Catholics who may feel drawn to return to the church.

  • Rest of LA Apartments to be demolished

    Demolition of the final Los Alamos Apartments building (#939) is expected to get underway soon. The contractor, Paul Parker Construction, will begin mobilizing and staging at the site later this week.

    Demolition was completed on the initial four structures on the western side of the site in 2010 to clear the property for the new Municipal Building, Historic Archives and County Records Center. The site plan for those new buildings was approved by the P&Z Commission in August and construction will be getting underway in September. The few remaining very low-income residents in Building #939 were relocated to new homes in August.

  • Clarification 09-09-11

    In reference to the story in Thursday’s Los Alamos Monitor about the Charter Review Committee meeting Wednesday evening, resident John Horne explains that his statement regarding two national organizations coming to the aid of those in favor of retaining the Sheriff’s Office was not intended as a threat but rather to inform the committee that the situation will get expensive for the taxpayers and those fighting on either side of the Sheriff’s Office issue. He said it is his desire to avoid that.
