  • Residents ponder Trinity Roundabouts

    Proposed roundabouts on Trinity Drive have stirred debate and controversy recently. 

    In an effort to collect people’s thoughts about the proposed changes along this main artery, Los Alamos County hosted a walking tour Thursday afternoon. 

    Thirty-nine people participated in the walk, which started at the Justice Center, traveled down to the Shell gas station to the Oppenheimer and Trinity intersection before turning to head up to Ashley Pond. The tour ended where it began at the Justice Center. 

    County Council Chair Sharon Stover recommended hosting the tour. She said she had questions about the proposed changes and she wanted to get a better understanding of the issues surrounding Trinity Drive. 

  • AG King issues local opinion

    The New Mexico attorney general has issued an opinion regarding the hotly contested question of whether the county charter may legally require certain capital projects receive prior voter approval. 

    “Los Alamos County, which has adopted a home rule charter, may legally require the approval of county voters before the county proceeds with a capital project,” said Attorney General Gary King in a letter to Interim County Administrator Randy Autio Wednesday.

  • Dry spell continues

    Yet another month has passed with meager precipitation.
    The first four months of 2011 netted a total of 0.68 inches in Los Alamos and 0.27 inches in White Rock, where the norm is about 4 inches and 3 inches in the two towns, respectively.
    A look over the entire weather record in both towns reveals that the first third of only 1972 was drier. And April was windy, too.  Numerous cold fronts passed and summer-like warmth abruptly reversed into winter. Precipitation was measured on seven days in Los Alamos and on four days in White Rock, but in the end April was merely a continuation of a dry and windy 2011 thus far.
    The precipitation total in Los Alamos in April was 0.47 inches where 1.06 inches is normal.

    Los Alamos Fire Department (LAFD) personnel, which included Louisa Martinez (left), Marisha Greigo, Ana Martinez, Chief Doug Tucker, Norma Valdez, Justin and Charlie Grider, 4, served up bowls of Frito pie Tuesday afternoon at Los Alamos National Bank.
