    The Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation announces the award of the Cerro Grande Scholarships.  The students being awarded Cerro Grande Scholarships this year were in the first grade at the time of the fire in May of 2000. Each student’s family home was a complete loss.
    To be eligible for the scholarship, students must have been enrolled in the Los Alamos Public Schools at the time of the fire, be graduating in good standing and have plans to attend an accredited college or university, vocational school or be joining a branch of the United States military.  
    This year, three students are the recipients of the Cerro Grande Scholarship award.  

  • Food project gets underway

    Spring has been kind to the Los Alamos Youth Food Project.

    Forsyth was one of the founders of the Asylum Street Spankers. However, he has never played with that group in Los Alamos.

  • Hooray! We're not Wisconsin

    On the same day as the New Mexico primary, Wisconsin voters decided not to recall their governor.  
    Pundits have been busy analyzing the tea leaves about that election.  I’m considering the meaning for New Mexico.  I think simply: Thank goodness we can’t do that here. The New Mexico Constitution does not allow for recall of a governor.
    It is sometimes discussed among us policy wonks whether New Mexico should have “recall and initiative” like some other states. Recall is the opportunity to kick an elected official out of office by popular vote; initiative is the ability for citizens to put a proposal on the ballot directly, without going through the Legislature.
