  • Animal Shelter 09-04-11

    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.
    Pardon our construction. We are installing solar hot water, so the shelter has been closed to prevent accidents. If you need some help, call a volunteers at 412-3451.
    It’s summer, remember that pets also suffer when the temperature rises. Cooling animals (dogs, rabbits, cats) by giving them a “cool” bath or shower to help keep their body temperature down.
    A cool towel on a tile floor to lay on, a cool towel or washcloth laying over the skin, next to a fan will also help cool the animal.
    Make sure they have plenty of cool water to drink as well.

    This day will be a symbolic event to “move beyond fossil fuels” both figuratively — by pouring into the streets on bikes, skateboards, and on foot to “move” around the communities — and literally, by taking community action and calling for a shift in energy systems.

    Martinez’s vehicle pulled over for speeding

    ALBUQUERQUE — Police said New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez’s vehicle was pulled over after her driver was caught going 13 mph over the speed limit.
    KOAT-TV reports that Albuquerque police confirmed Thursday that the governor’s vehicle was clocked going 48 mph in a 35 mph zone on Frontage Road near Jefferson Street and Interstate 25 last Friday.
    That violation typically earns the driver a $95 ticket, but the governor’s driver got away with a verbal warning.
    Albuquerque Sgt. Patrick Ficke said the governor did not receive preferential treatment.
