  • Radio antenna location request goes before PZ Wednesday

    Los Alamos community radio station KRSN AM 1490 passed the first step towards receiving site approval for its new antenna from the Parks and Recreation Board last month.

    Station owners David and Gillian Sutton are now set to present their case to the Planning and Zoning Commission at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday in Council Chambers at the Community Building at 20th Street and Central Avenue.

    The Suttons are seeking P and Z approval to locate their antenna in the northeast corner of Loma Linda Park.  

  • P&Z says no to KRSN antenna site

    In a split decision Wednesday evening, the Planning and Zoning Commission denied a special use permit that would have allowed KRSN AM 1490 to place a 1,000 watt radio antenna in Loma Linda Park.

    The 170-foot tall antenna would have enhanced the station’s ability to broadcast in Los Alamos at night.

    Commissioner Fran Berting recused herself from the vote, leaving seven commissioners to hear the issue.

    Well into the four hour meeting in council chambers, Chair Patrick Sullivan suddenly received an emergency phone call and quickly exited the room.

  • Trinity work to last three weeks

    Orange cones dotted the street Thursday, turning Trinity Drive into more of an obstacle course, than a road.

    The road was narrowed down to one lane to allow Department of Transportation crews to work on milling and resurfacing the road. The work is expected to last three weeks, with the drivable path of NM502 changing on a regular basis.

  • Pueblo youth study Valles watershed

    Some 65 students from Northern New Mexico Pueblos came out to get some hands-on experience and wrap their minds around the teeming environment of Vales Caldera National Preserve.

  • Beware of fly-by-night contractors

    Just as the dregs of society did following the Cerro Grande Fire, fly-by-night contractors are descending upon Los Alamos to cash in on all the hail damage repair work created by the massive July 6 hailstorm.

  • Methodist church to offer gameshow VBS

    Los Alamos First United Methodist Church’s Vacation Bible School will not be a run-of-the-mill classroom lecture.

    Rather than sitting at desks, the Bible school is turning learning about Christianity into a game.

    In fact, the theme for the Vacation Bible School is Studio Go Theme Show.

    Camille Westcott, organizer for the Vacation Bible School, explained each day the program will start and end with a game-show and students will have the opportunity to compete in the game and win prizes.

  • County website will be down

    The County's Information Technology staff will perform maintenance and install upgrades to the County’s website on Saturday morning.

    The website may be down for approximately 4 hours. Connections may be intermittent throughout this time period. We apologize for any inconvenience.

  • An era ending for the 'Tacos'

    SANTA FE – The Pentagon plans to shut down the proud New Mexico Air National Guard. The fighter pilots of the Air Guard have served the nation honorably in wars since the 1950s.

    But as methods of warfare have changed, fighter planes are no longer needed to the extent they once were. Air-to-air combat is nearly a thing of the past as our enemies have little or no air forces.

    Air support for troop movements still is needed but not to the extent it once was.

  • Getting and spending and not wasting our powers

    As individuals we spend most of our lives planning resource allocation.  Initially our only resource is our own time and effort (unless we were born rich).  

    Later, if we use this resource wisely, we will accumulate wealth and will be able to also allocate resources with our spending priorities.  Many people (perhaps most in the more developed countries) use what we will call plan A.  Accumulate wealth by any means available; so as to later have multiple spending options.  

  • Discussion highlights work session

    Very little action was taken at Tuesday night’s county council meeting.

    The gathering, held in the White Rock Town Hall, was a work session and so only two motions were passed for the business portion of the agenda.

    The evening began with a proclamation, declaring Saturday, July 18, 2009, as “The Next Big Idea” Day in Los Alamos County.

    Kevin Holsapple, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce, as well as staff member Jeremy Varela, were present and accepted the proclamation.
