  • 07-08-12 Thank you letter

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank your community and one of your residents. I became lost in Los Alamos last week when driving across Northern New Mexico. Near the intersection where Diamond Drive ends and (I think) San Ildefonso Road, I stopped to ask for directions. Not only was I given directions, this group escorted me to Trinity Drive and made sure I was heading in the right direction.

  • Viloria has perfect prediction

    Isolina Viloria couldn’t have done much better at this week’s Pace Race.
    The Pace Race is a weekly run hosted by the Atomic City Roadrunners. This week’s race was Tuesday night on pavement and on the trails behind the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center.
    Not only was Viloria the fastest female finisher on the 1-mile trail course — there was both a paved and trail course for Tuesday’s race — she also earned a perfect finish time prediction. Duane Marr finished second with a six-second prediction error, while Anya Gonzales (99 seconds off) was the only other competitor to finish with an error less than triple digits.
