  • Animal Shelter 04-17-11

    The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on-site adoptable pets; others are in foster care with loving, temporary homes.
    All of our fully reconditioned adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro-chipped.
    Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  
    We get lots of roaming cats and dogs. Don’t assume your cat was a meal for a coyote. Check with the shelter and see if your best friend is bunking with us. Proof of rabies vaccination is required when claiming your pet.

  • Thank you 04-17-11

    Thanks for helping the community
     
    We wish to thank Los Alamos National Bank again for a very generous contribution to the Gift Fund of the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center. LANB’s support allows lower-income children and adults in Los Alamos and surrounding communities to have access to our programs of lessons, exercise and recreation.
    During 2010, recipients of all ages were supported by this program and greatly enjoyed using the Aquatic Center.

  • Give a hug and remember Rep. Wallace

    I’d like to take this opportunity to break from the planned column of the week just to speak about relationships, which is what assets are really all about.
    The particular relationship I’d like to speak about is my relationship with State Representative Jeanette Wallace.
    In 2000, I was hired as the Maternal and Child Health Council Coordinator. The job was to look at the issues of women of childbearing age and their children. I assumed, since I interviewed at 8-1/2 months pregnant for the job, I was a shoo in, but we’ll never know if that was the case.
    At one point the councils were in jeopardy of losing their funding and we rallied the troops (all state coordinators) to the Roundhouse, for an “Educate the Legislature Day.”

  • Actor Nicolas Cage arrested in New Orleans

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Actor Nicolas Cage was arrested after he got drunk in the city's French Quarter and argued in the street with his wife over whether a house they were in front of was theirs, police said Saturday.

    Police said in a press release Saturday that Cage was arrested the previous evening. Police said the couple was in front of a home that Cage insisted they were renting. She said it wasn't theirs, and Cage then grabbed her arm.

    The release said Cage started hitting vehicles and tried to get into a taxi. A police officer saw that Cage was drunk and told him to get out of the cab. Cage then started yelling at the officer.

  • More shelling in rebel-held city in western Libyan

    AJDABIYA, Libya (AP) — Moammar Gadhafi's forces poured rocket fire after dawn Saturday into Misrata, the only western city still in rebel hands, and weary residents who have endured more than a month of fighting angrily lashed out at NATO for failing to halt the deadly assault.

    Five civilians were killed in a 30-minute barrage of shelling that heavily damaged a factory for dairy products and sent up a thick column of black smoke, a doctor said. A human rights group has accused the Gadhafi regime of using cluster bombs in Misrata — munitions that can cause indiscriminate casualties and have been banned by most countries. The Libyan government denies the charge.
