  • PUTTING ASSETS INTO ACTION: Lovin’ the Los Alamos Middle School Hawks

    This week, I had the priviledge of working with the Los Alamos Middle School Hawks on A Change of Heart. A Change of Heart is a 40 Developmental Assets based approach to improving school climate.

    New Mexico now requires schools to have a district wide plan for bullying prevention and a Change of Heart is a community building effort for the Hawks as they assemble for the new year.

  • A thousand thanks

    The credit roll for a typical feature film is several hundred names long.

    Even a television documentary is often at least a hundred people or organizations. In fact the collaborative efforts and acts of generosity and kindness for a typical educational or cultural video can be so long that the credit roll, in order not to take up half the show, has to be accelerated to the point that thanks and credits whiz by in an unreadable blur.

    There is almost never a power point at the national laboratory that doesn’t include a dozen names and sponsors.

  • Monthly household hazardous waste collections set to begin

    The once-a-year household hazardous waste collection will convert to a monthly schedule at the Eco Station beginning in September.

    Los Alamos County’s Environmental Services Department made an exciting addition to the Eco Station with the installation of a household hazardous waste (HHW) facility.

  • Parking lot sale to serve multiple purposes

    The parking lot sale at Unitarian Universalist Church of Los Alamos is more than just an opportunity to make a few bucks or score some great items at bargain prices.

    It is a chance to socialize with the community and spread awareness about the church.

    “We’re an active church that wants to do more outreach,” said Robyn Schultz, parking lot sales coordinator. “It’s a good reason for people to clean out their houses.”

    “It’s a great community building activity,” she added.

  • Morning traffic jam at Diamond and Sycamore

    A notice from the county explained a lengthy delay Thursday morning during rush hour.

    The traffic bottleneck on Diamond Drive between 7:30 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. was caused mostly by a single vehicle attempting a prohibited left turn onto Sycamore Street from Diamond, according to field personnel observing the incident.

    The Department of Public Utilities announcement stated that the driver was unresponsive to redirection, to ease traffic flow.

  • Girls soccer: Toppers open their 2009 season at home

    There are some new faces around the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls varsity soccer team heading into the 2009 season.

    Early on, the challenge will be to find a replacement for one of the faces that departed.

    Los Alamos opens its 2009 season Friday morning when it hosts the Los Alamos Girls Soccer Invitational. Los Alamos will play in pool A with Ruidoso and Kirtland Central, while Aztec, St. Michael’s and Capital will compete in pool B. All tournament games are scheduled to be played at Sullivan Field.

  • Celebrate the end of summer

    Summer is  winding down, school is starting up and the transition from summer to fall is beginning. Despite the changes in the air, the Los Alamos Summer Concert Series is still bringing music to the last few weeks of summer.

    Even though it is a time of change, it is still worth celebrating.

    Take The Derailers, for instance. When they come to town for their concert at 7 p.m. Friday at Smith’s Food and Drug parking lot in Los Alamos, it is the roasted chiles and the cool temperatures that this Austin, Texas-based band is eager to experience.
