  • Get on board the Constitution

    I am displeased with the overwhelmingly unconstitutional voting record of New Mexico’s entire congressional delegation.

    To judge for yourself and to keep apprised, please allow me to recommend The New American Magazine’s Freedom Index, available at www.thenewamerican.com. This invaluable resource summarizes congressional voting records and provides concise explanations regarding the constitutionality of each vote.

  • Support UNM-LA mil levy

     I’m writing to you in support of the mil levy vote for the University of New Mexico Los Alamos branch.  Surprisingly enough, many of our town residents don’t realize that there’s a college branch right here.  We have some of the best faculty that you’ll find anywhere, including our main campus, and our class sizes are small enough that our students enjoy specialized attention from the instructors.  Although the majority of our degrees are two-year degrees, we also offer a full four-year computer science degree.  We are also one of the first

  • Ten tough years among the fools

    For the record, if you’re reading this right now, chances are you’ve successfully navigated through the wonders of the 21st century’s first decade.

    Perhaps you even have some water left from the Y2K scare. In fact, is there a better place to begin a reflection on the past 10 years than at the very beginning – or, say, the 12 months before?

  • Rotary honors Molly Willms as its student of the month

    Molly Jean Willms was recently honored as Rotary Student of the Month for December.

    Willms invited her choir teacher Paula Nichols to join her in accepting this honor, because, Willms said, “Mrs. Nichols brings out the best in her students and is a joy to be around.”

    The Rotary Club of Los Alamos selects one outstanding student from the current Los Alamos High School graduating class to honor each month of the school year.

    Students are selected on the basis of their academics, extracurricular activities and their service to the community.

  • Committee announces meeting plans

    The newly constituted Charter Review Committee will meet at 5:30 p.m. Monday at 5:30 p.m. in White Rock Town Hall. The agenda will cover status reports from members and subcommittees, as well as a “path forward” for the committee’s work. The committee will also discuss plans for holding a Town Hall meeting on Feb. 3, their committee rules and then have a closing item for general committee member comments regarding administrative matters and logistics.

  • Education takes a hit in proposed budget

    In releasing the governor’s budget recommendation late Tuesday, a spokesman said with education making up most of the state’s budget, there is no way to avoid cutting school funding.

    Gov. Bill Richardson is calling for a 3 percent cut across the board.

    “This is entirely different from what he said during the special session. Yes — the schools will be affected but the Legislative Finance Committee is looking at maybe a 2 percent cut,” said Rep. Jeannette Wallace, R-N.M., a longtime LFC member.

  • Girls basketball: Toppers thump Hawks at home

    Even bringing in a whole new school couldn’t change Lisa Villareal’s luck inside Griffith Gymnasium.

    Villareal, the head coach of the Volcano Vista Hawks and formerly the head coach of the Española Valley Sundevils, has seen her teams struggle far more often than not in their visits to Griffith Gymnasium. Tuesday night was no exception.

  • Boys basketball: LA’s comeback attempt falls short Tuesday

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team was slow getting out of the gate Tuesday at Volcano Vista.

    Following its five-day layoff, Los Alamos managed just six points in the first quarter of Tuesday’s game against Volcano Vista’s Hawks. While Los Alamos was able to tie the score and even grab a late lead, the Hawks hit some big shots in the latter part of the fourth quarter to take a 56-49 victory.
