    The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on-site adoptable pets; others are in foster care with loving, temporary homes.

    Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  
    We get lots of roaming cats and dogs. Don’t assume your cat was a meal for a coyote. Check with the shelter and see if your best friend is bunking with us. Proof of rabies vaccination is required when claiming your pet.

  • LWV Convention slated for Los Alamos

  • Local gets work published after 30 years

    Thirty years after writing  “Second Cousins,” Doug Roberts, who lives in Nambé but worked for 20 years at Los Alamos National Laboratory, recently published the science fiction work on Amazon.com. The book is available as an ebook.
    Roberts explained when he first wrote the book he was unsuccessful in getting it published, so he shelved the project for several years until recently, when he decided to “dust it off” and basically rewrote the entire book.
    This time, he was successful.
    “It feels wonderful. I always felt being a writer was the ideal profession for me because I like to read. I thought it would be the ideal process to be able to write stories that other people could enjoy,” Roberts said.
