  • Lab outlines priority cleanup goals

    Lab officials are calling it the “LANL 3,706 Transuranic Waste Campaign.”

    Why the 3,706?

    Their goal is to remove 3,706 cubic meters of TRU waste by June 30, 2014 from Technical Area 54 and Material Disposal Area G.

    So how much is 3,706 cubic meters?

    It’s a lot. A cubic meter is a unit of measurement for volume. The 3,706 cubic meters translates to roughly 130,876.154 cubic feet.

    Dan Cox, the deputy associate director for Environmental Programs at the lab, told the Northern New Mexico Citizens Advisory Board that the waste is classified into three categories. Seventy percent of the waste is in oversized containers, 20 percent are in drums and 10 percent are in standard waste boxes.

  • Brianna Engleman comes home to Los Alamos

    For the Engleman family, Dec.26 may have been the best day of last year. That was the day Brianna Engleman came home, three months after undergoing a hemispherectomy to remove the right side of her brain.

    The surgery, performed Oct. 25 at the UCLA Medical Center, was the last remaining option to control the six—year—old’s refractory epilepsy, a form of the disease that does not respond to medication.

    Her seizures had continued to intensify for nearly two years, until Brianna was experiencing multiple seizures every day.

  • N.M. centennial celebrations kicked off Friday

    True New Mexicans share a great love and pride in their land. Talk with any resident long enough and they will undoubtedly share a story with you — whether it’s one of families settling in the valleys hundreds of years ago or a tourist who recently found themselves on permanent vacation.

    As New Mexico celebrated the anniversary of its statehood Friday, a great sense of pride resonated throughout the Capital as speakers and locals described their own New Mexico experience at a celebration sponsored by Keep New Mexico Beautiful, Inc.

    Director Richelle Ponder hosted the event, eventually sharing the podium with a variety of enthusiastic speakers and guests including Steve Stucker of KOB Channel 4 and Governor Susana Martinez.

  • Posters Help Students Remember PBS

    Los Alamos Public School kicks off 2012 with some new posters to help students remember the district-wide policy called PBS.
    PBS or Positive Behavior Support, has translated to students as be safe, be responsible, be respectful.
    The simple phrase allows schools and districts to build multi-leveled systems to handle both academic and behavior supports to assist students throughout their academic journey.
    The efforts began in 2010 with a collaboration between the Los Alamos Public Schools and the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board, to offer training and resources to LAPS staff.
    The LAPS team worked to develop a timeline and strategies, while maintaining consistency in PBS language, district-wide.
