  • Few questions about bond

    Dear Editor,

    1)  Isn’t the school board that’s wants the bond money the same school board that recently “wrote off” six million dollars of missing money?

    2) If there is overwhelming urgency right now to fix the school’s 60 year old  buildings, why wasn’t there this much urgency 10 years ago when the buildings  were 50 years old?  It seems that the urgency is more the fear that REAL economic bad times are ahead and maybe people really won’t have the money (even all the Los Alamos millionaires!). 

  • Please support school bond

    Dear Editor,

     I was elated last summer when I was hired to work as a teacher at Los Alamos Middle School. The prior summer I visited Los Alamos and was very impressed by the town’s infrastructure and by its palpable sense of community pride. 

  • Richardson’s dubious agenda

    Dear Editor,

    Can we afford the Bill Richardson agenda here in New Mexico? The governor has had to withdraw from the national scene due to his possible involvement in the play-to-play scandal involving CDR Financial Products. (Come to think about it, isn’t it dubious “financial products” that have caused our current economic recession? Hmmm....)

  • Ken Milder is the person

    Dear Editor,

    Ken Milder has served this community over many years with intelligence and diligence as a county councilor and as a a member of the utility board. Disagreement with some decisions is inevitable but in our opinion we are fortunate to have someone with his experience, talent and qualifications.

    We strongly recommend that the council select Ken Milder to fill the vacancy.

  • Boys basketball: LA opens district Wednesday vs. Taos

    In Alan Kirk’s four-tiered boys basketball season system, tier one is finishing up and tier two is just about to start.

    Los Alamos ended its first phase with a solid 12-6 record. However, the most heated phase of the season gets going Wednesday when the District 2AAAA season opens.

    The Hilltoppers will host the Taos Tigers, the only one of the five district teams without at least 10 wins so far.
