  • Trinity Site lease signed

     Los Alamos County Administrator Harry Burgess announced Friday that the county has executed the ground lease and developer agreement with Los Alamos Trinity LP for the property known as the “Trinity Site,” located just south of Trinity Drive and MariMac Plaza on the eastern edge of Los Alamos.
    A slight modification to the agreement was made Thursday after a final meeting with the developer, North American Development Group.
    The change will add up to 90 days during the feasibility period for the developer to consider their pre-leasing efforts regarding the other spaces surrounding the Smith’s Marketplace.

  • ´Toppers pick up big district sweep

    It was bombs away for the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team in the opening game of a critical doubleheader Saturday against Española Valley.
    The Hilltoppers clubbed three home runs in game one Saturday at Overlook Park, winning the opener 11-0. In game two, Hilltopper Monika Teter mowed down 14 batters in six innings to give her team a 6-0 victory and the sweep.
    Los Alamos and Española Valley went into the contest holding the top two spots in the District 2-4A race, but by picking up the sweep, Los Alamos is firmly in control and is just one victory away from making it to the halfway point in the district season with a perfect record.

  • Los Alamos native heads into the wild

    “Lions, tigers and bears. Oh my!”  This is what some may say on a veterinary adventure in a foreign country, but not Los Alamos native Erin Smith. She’s headed back for round two this summer.

    Smith, 26, is heading to South Africa for the second year in a row this summer to lend a hand as a wildlife veterinarian.

    “Veterinarians play a role in the conservation of these species in their natural habitats,” she said.

    She said the veterinarians are able to help abate the suffering of individual animals to preserve the overall health of the herd or pack.

  • Ask Alex: What makes people smell?

    I am going to assume you mean to ask why people smell a certain way. When a person says something smells, the smell tends to be bad. Not all people smell bad though.
    Usually it’s only the people who are sitting right next to the only open seat on the bus, or the people you share a cramped elevator with. I’ve known those people to smell like an alleyway dumpster filled with skunks and cheese.
    The people on the bus are impossible to avoid because you’re sitting next to the only open seat.
    If you stand, they will know you didn’t want to sit with them and then they will be stinky and sad. The elevator people are easy to avoid by taking the stairs, which always smell weird, but not exactly bad.

  • LA teens don’t know how lucky they are

    One of the first things I heard from the local teenagers when I moved to Los Alamos, was how boring this place is, how there is nothing to do and how nothing exciting ever happens.
    I’ve lived in Los Alamos for nearly two years now and I have found lots to do here.
    For example, where I came from, you have to drive for 40 minutes, over a mountain pass just to get to a public swimming pool.
    You also have to wait until winter is over to see the latest film because the only movie place is the outdoor drive-in theater.
    In Los Alamos, all you have to do is hop on the free Atomic City Transit to catch a movie at the Reel Deal Theater.
