  • LA Delegation Tours Sister City

    Members of the Los Alamos Sarov Sister City Initiative (LASSCI) were moved by the warm welcome they received from Los Alamos’ Sister City of Sarov, Russia.

    The delegation included Council vice-Chair Ron Selvage, Acting Community Services Director Charlie Kalogeros-Chattan (also representing the library), Los Alamos Commerce & Development Corporation (LACDC) Member Services Coordinator Katy Korkos, LASSCI Board Members Paul White and Nora Arbuckle and Colleen Olinger, former owner of the Otowi Station Bookstore. Arbuckle, who is originally from Uzbekistan, augmented the services of the interpreters.

    Selvage’s and Kalogeros-Chattan expenses were paid for by the county, whom they were representing, and other members paid their own expenses.

  • Mortillaro accepts lesser contract

    SANTA FE — Former Los Alamos County administrator Anthony J. Mortillaro finally got his contract as the executive director of the North Central Regional Transit District Friday.
    But it was far from an easy process.

    For more than three hours behind closed doors, the transit board met in executive session to hash out the details of the contract.

    It was far from unanimous.

    Santa Fe County Commissioner Robert Anaya initially made a motion that would give Mortillaro a base salary of $96,000 and no $500 per-month vehicle allowance. The motion failed 15-11, despite the support of Espanola’s Robert Seeds and Rio Arriba County’s Barney Trujillo.

  • LAHS students break tradition

    Los Alamos High School seniors did something completely different for Homecoming this year. Instead of trekking up LA Mountain to have a paint fight, they gathered at Urban Park to have the first-ever LAHS Powder Fight. Students in the Environmental Club worked with the Student Council to make this change, separating the senior painting of the LA from the paint fight. As a substitute, Environmental Club members mixed their own yellow and green powder, in the style of the Indian Holi Festival, with materials ordered from the Los alamos Co-op. Student Council recruited the fire department to send a truck over to soak students before the Powder Fight. Between 175-200 students participated in the event.

  • Fashion Maven: Winter clothes can be warm and stylish

    I was not ready for the cold weather to arrive so soon.  I’m a warm weather person who could wear tank tops, skirts and dresses every day of the year if the weather allowed it.
    Don’t get me wrong, I love to ski, but what about when it doesn’t snow and it’s still cold? What do I wear? I have endless combinations in my closet for a winter outfit, but putting them together into a cute, wearable and warm outfit is the most difficult part of getting through the cold stylishly.
    I have a few essentials for every fall and winter outfit that must go in your closet this season.
