  • Say something nice

    Welcome to October and the asset category of support.

    This category encompasses assets one through six and includes: family support, positive family communication, other adult relationships, caring neighborhood, caring school climate and parent involvement in schooling.

    Our first two areas of focus are numbers one and two, family support and positive family communication.

    I would like to draw attention to adult responsibility when it comes to being supportive and having positive communication with youth.

    Do you reap what you sow? I know several adults who don’t hesitate to bash their children on social media and to friends, even when kids are within earshot.

  • Motorcyclist tries to flee police, crashes at intersection

    Sunday was not Tyler Webb’s day.

    Webb, 26, was driving down Diamond Drive on his 2000 Honda Interceptor motorcycle around 5 p.m., when a Los Alamos Police officer flagged him for going 49 mph in a 35 mph zone.

    However, the officer was traveling the opposite direction and could not turn around and pull him over. When another officer traveling the same way as Webb tried to pull him over, Webb sped off. Police did not give pursuit.

    “Chasing is very dangerous,” LAPD Capt. Randy Foster said. “We only chase someone when the danger outweighs the risk of chasing a suspect. A speeding ticket was definitely not a dangerous situation.”

    So the LAPD decided to let events run their course. They did not have to wait long.

    Webb, allegedly driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs, crashed his motorcycle at the intersection of Jemez and Diamond.

    Webb apparently ran a red light at the intersection; narrowly missing a Los Alamos National Laboratory security vehicle traveling through the same intersection on a green light.

  • Smoke from prescribed burns may be seen in LA

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Two national forests in New Mexico are planning prescribed fires this week that are designed to clear out hazardous fuels from hundreds of acres.

    Officials with the Santa Fe National Forest in northern New Mexico plan to treat more than 200 acres east of Santa Fe as long as the weather cooperates.

    The treatment is focused on improving the health of Santa Fe's watershed.

    Smoke will likely be visible from Santa Fe, Pecos, Los Alamos and as far south as Albuquerque.

    In southern New Mexico, Lincoln National Forest officials are planning to burn slash piles over a 470-acre area southwest of Glencoe.

    The Skillet 3 project is the first of several fuel reduction treatment scheduled on the Lincoln forest this fall.
