  • Feinstein: Petraeus to testify on Benghazi attacks

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee says former CIA Director David Petraeus has agreed to testify to Congress about the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Wednesday that Petraeus, who resigned from the CIA post on Friday because of an extra-marital affair, indicated his willingness to testify.

    "He is very willing and interested in talking to the committee," she said. No date for his testimony has been set.

    Feinstein has been among those in Congress who have complained that lawmakers should have been notified about an FBI investigation that led to the disclosure of Petraeus' affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell.

    But she said that Petraeus' testimony to her committee will be limited to the Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others. Petraeus was CIA director at the time of the attacks and visited Libya afterward.

  • Students participate in Read to Feed

    Los Alamos Middle School has chosen to participate in Read to Feed‚ a reading incentive program designed by Heifer International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending world hunger and poverty while caring for the Earth.
    Read to Feed allows children to help find solutions to global problems like hunger and poverty.
    LAMS students will record each of the books they read on the back of a sheet, through Dec. 14. Students will ask for pledges for each book they read.  
    A “buck a book,” from their family and friends is recommended, but any amount will be accepted, no matter how small. Cash or checks will be accepted.
    Checks should be made out to LAMS with “Read to Feed” on the memo line. School district policy prohibits canvassing: going door-to-door, to collect pledges.
    The Read to Feed Committee (a group of seventh graders organizing the fundraiser) will decide what kinds of animals to buy through Heifer International.
    Heifer then decides where the need is greatest and provides families and communities with the animals they’ve purchased through the money raised.
