  • Bomb scare diverts plane; may have been a hoax

    STOCKHOLM (AP) — Police evacuated 273 people from a Pakistani jet diverted to Stockholm due to a bomb alert Saturday and briefly detained a passenger after Canadian authorities received a tip-off that he was carrying explosives.
    However, no explosives were found on the man, who was released after questioning by police, or on the Boeing 777 from Pakistan International Airlines, which had been bound from Toronto to Karachi, Pakistan.
    The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said it was investigating whether the incident was a “terrorism hoax.”

    Our most recent data point for this asset is that 32 percent of local students feel like they spend a certain amount of time reading or listening to books outside of school for pleasure.

    The more I began thinking about restarting my therapy practice here, the more I became stressed out. I literally stopped experiencing the joy of life.
    Every time I feel disoriented I look inside for insight.

  • Los Alamos High School teachers ask for wish list items

    The LAHS Wish List can help Los Alamos High School staff help students and their friends succeed. Teachers often buy classroom supplies with their own money or students go without needed supplies. 
    Budgets have decreased over the years, as prices of goods have gone up.  Anything contributed will help stretch the dollars and cover the needs.
    Donated items may be dropped off at the LAHS front office with a note including your name and the staff name. LAHS will ensure that the items will be given to the requesting staff member.
