  • PEN&INKee^POSSIBILITIES: Seeing the world through a child’s eyes

    I walk into the grocery store, drive by Ashley Pond and meander down the sidewalks of Los Alamos almost every day, but recently I questioned just how much I see my surroundings.

    A few hours spent with my oldest nephew opened my eyes to everything this community offers.

    Saturday, my sister took her daughter to a ballet show, dropped her youngest son at our parent’s house while Connor hung out with me for a few hours.

    SANTA FE -- There I was, just the other day, sniveling in a column about how New Mexico never gets any respect and then my cousin Margene Harris, from San Antonio, N.M. tells me that Food Network star Bobby Flay had a crew in town for three days in mid-May to film a show about Manny's Buckhorn Tavern.

    A design featuring water, wind and Earth, or some type of mosaic will likely be the artwork chosen for the east wall of the Judicial/Police/Jail Complex.

    A committee made up of stakeholders who have an interest in the building and members of the Art in Public Places Board as well as county staff, met in a two-hour meeting Tuesday.

    With his plans in limbo, Faulkner said one of his band instructors recommended going into the music field.

  • Noon’s picture wrong again

    Dear Editor,

    Once again, Marita Noon’s May14 guest column entitled “What’s Wrong With This Picture?” represents yet another of her contributions supporting what is really the minerals/natural gas/coal mining industry’s policy interests. The author’s opinions do not represent the majority of citizens who are seeking access to an ecologically sustainable energy and minerals supply.
