  • N.M. centennial celebrations kicked off Friday

    True New Mexicans share a great love and pride in their land. Talk with any resident long enough and they will undoubtedly share a story with you — whether it’s one of families settling in the valleys hundreds of years ago or a tourist who recently found themselves on permanent vacation.

    As New Mexico celebrated the anniversary of its statehood Friday, a great sense of pride resonated throughout the Capital as speakers and locals described their own New Mexico experience at a celebration sponsored by Keep New Mexico Beautiful, Inc.

    Director Richelle Ponder hosted the event, eventually sharing the podium with a variety of enthusiastic speakers and guests including Steve Stucker of KOB Channel 4 and Governor Susana Martinez.

  • Posters Help Students Remember PBS

    Los Alamos Public School kicks off 2012 with some new posters to help students remember the district-wide policy called PBS.
    PBS or Positive Behavior Support, has translated to students as be safe, be responsible, be respectful.
    The simple phrase allows schools and districts to build multi-leveled systems to handle both academic and behavior supports to assist students throughout their academic journey.
    The efforts began in 2010 with a collaboration between the Los Alamos Public Schools and the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board, to offer training and resources to LAPS staff.
    The LAPS team worked to develop a timeline and strategies, while maintaining consistency in PBS language, district-wide.

  • Political watch 2012

    After reviewing the events of 2011, I feel the New Year should follow a few patterns.
    First, President Barack Obama will most likely be reelected. None of the Republican candidates seem to stand much of a chance. Herman Cain’s standing was absolutely decimated by the sexual harassment claims.
    Rick Perry completely fell apart multiple times during the debates, which will hurt his credibility. None of the other candidates seem to be getting much public attention. With the announcement of the withdrawal from Iraq being so perfectly timed, Obama will probably return to office.
    Whether this is good or bad for America is up to the historians of the future to decide.
