    Ode to Wind

    Oh how you spin and blow with a violent roar
    and dance and swirl and slam the door,
    how you come with spring and never quit,
    how you just can’t seem to dial down a bit.
    And, oh those dust storms that you bring
    getting in my eyes so I can’t see a thing.
    That grit that grinds between my teeth,
    that musty air making it hard to breathe.
    Oh how I love you mighty wind
    with the dirt and dryness that you send
    that cracks my skin so my knuckles bleed
    building up that character that I need.
    Maybe you aren’t all that bad
    though you make me sneeze and itch.
    Perhaps you’ll lift my house off the ground

  • Bell schedule at LAHS is causing some headaches

    The Los Alamos Public School system needs to trim some spending from this year for next year’s budget.
    One proposal for doing this is to change the high school’s bell schedule next year. This would allow the same bus drivers to bus for the grade, middle, and high schools, reducing the number necessary.
    While this could definitely save money, it also could have negative side effects.
    The controversy centers mostly around the planned A/A period at the end of the day.
    This time is meant to replace the time currently allocated before school, for students to go in for help to a teacher in whose class they need it. This plan has definite advantages and disadvantages.
