  • Fuller Lodge gets a new roof

    Rather than resort to filling Fuller Lodge with the pinging sound of water droplets meeting metal pots and pans, Los Alamos Capital Projects and Facilities Department is replacing the lodge’s roof.
    Dan Erickson, capital projects manager, said the last time Fuller Lodge got a new roof was 15 years ago.  Since then, he said the wood shingles have started to fail, meaning they were curling and cracking.

  • Thank you

    Our daughter, Lorinda, is an eighth grader at the Los Alamos Middle School. Our daughter had saved up for an expensive iPod. We told her not to take it to school, but she wanted to take it just one day to show it to her friends.  
    She had it for less then one week when she took it to school. When she arrived at school she did not have it. She thought she might have dropped it in the car (her father had given her a ride to school that day). When she got home she searched the car and the house and to no avail.
