  • CMRR project update: 'There's nothing to sink your teeth into'

    Since 2005, as part of the settlement between the Los Alamos National Laboratory and a network of community groups, it was required that the lab hold semi-annual meetings in regards to the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement Project.

    On Thursday night at Fuller Lodge, the 11th such meeting was held as a standing-room only crowd was in attendance.

    Greg Mello of the Los Alamos Study Group perhaps may have summed it up best near the end of the meeting when he said, “there is nothing to sink your teeth into.”

  • Geography can be unfair

    Recently I had an opportunity to visit with a gentleman from Catron County. The topic was what is happening in his part of the world.
    “Some ranching,” my informant said. The saw mills are gone, thanks to the spotted owl and the environmentalists.
    Subdivisions are the other development, he said. Some attract older people. Subdivisions are fine, he said, but he wonders about an older person building a Catron County home. Health care availability is modest, a problem he knows well, being equipped with a small oxygen tank.
