  • Students get a wake-up call

    At 11:05 a.m. Wednesday, a simulated traffic collision was made viewable on Los Alamos High School grounds.
    Rescue workers treated “injured” student participants. These students experienced first hand, the feelings of being involved in an alcohol-related, texting-while-driving collision. A coroner handled “fatalities” on the scene, while Los Alamos County firefighters, paramedics and police officers helped student actors, who were made up to look like crash victims, complete with fake blood and wounds. LAPD officers investigated and arrested the student “drunk driver.”

  • Thank you 04-22-12

    On behalf of the Los Alamos Friends of the Shelter, I would like to thank the Posse Shack for allowing us to fundraise at their April’s first Sunday of the month pancake breakfast.
    It was a tremendously successful event where we raised more than $3,000 for the animals of Northern New Mexico.
    I would like to extend special gratitude to Bob and Steve, who flipped hundreds of pancakes that morning.
    Sandy, who labored in front of a hot griddle, turning out bacon and sausages endlessly and Mark, who cooked eggs with skilled finesse.
    And last but not least, a big shout-out of thanks to Randy, who masterfully juggled overseeing the entire operation and directing the volunteers to chores that needed attending to.

  • Hargreaves showcases his skills with LASO

    When local French horn player, John Hargreaves, was asked if his instrument is the hardest instrument to learn to play well, he just smiled, didn’t give a direct answer but said, “French horn players are always asked that question!”
    Hargreaves will solo with the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra April 27 at the Crossroads Bible Church. As he described his journey to becoming an accomplished horn player, the answer to that question points to an obvious “yes.”
