  • Project plagued by late starts

    County Public Works Director Kyle Zimmerman estimated that the Diamond Drive Phase III Project is 16 days behind schedule.  As a result, cold weather may prevent finishing the final step, which would add  an “open grade friction course,” a treatment that helps tires grip the road and reduces the risk of hydroplaning.

  • LANL Venture Acceleration Fund invites entrepreneurs

  • Addressing children's needs

    Los Alamos is a wonderful place for most families. We enjoy great schools and a wide variety of youth/family programs. I am proud our town is a progressive, vibrant community that is generally responsive to the needs of its residents. But there is a gap not yet addressed. Our community has a small, yet significant, part of the population with developmental disabilities. Outside of school, the families who care for those individuals are often on their own. In Los Alamos, there is a lack of comprehensive programs in place to provide support across the spectrum of abilities.

  • Security expert works to heal others

    Following three decades in security, Reuben Peck changed careers and is now a certified massage therapist with a new practice in Los Alamos.

    “I got my first massage 15 months ago and it felt so good and I was just at peace with everything in the world. I thought if I could pass that on to others it would be wonderful,” Peck said. “I checked on schools and found one of the best in the country was in Santa Fe.”
