  • LAPS sending wrong message

    What are our schools teaching our children? With thousands in our state without heat and at risk of freezing, our governor has declared a state of emergency and asked schools and government offices to close so that power can be restored to households across the state.
    The list of schools complying scrolls across our television screens.
    It appears that everyone is working to help those in need. Working together for the greater good. All except the Los Alamos Public Schools.

  • If it ain’t broke people

    If my tax dollars paid for someone to come up with the lame brained idea of reducing Trinity Drive to two lanes, I want my money back.
    I have lived in Los Alamos for almost 31 one years. I’ve driven Trinity Drive tens of thousands of times at all times of day and night. I’ve never had a problem.
    Sure, traffic slows and all lanes are used at peak times but it’s to be expected and isn’t a problem (except for the “Type A”s that think they have to be in such a hurry).

  • Can’t stop that uneasy feeling picturing Trinity roundabouts

    Every time I thought about Trinity Drive with roundabouts I had a general feeling of unease. And then I remembered.
    When I lived in the Boston area and I had commuted to Cambridge, MA, from nine miles away by bicycle, roundabouts were the worst part of the commute.
    If you stayed on the right, it was all too easy for cars to peel off of the circle to the right and try to mow you down. If you went into the main lane to avoid being run over, drivers would honk at you.

  • Three issues stand out with regard to Trinity Drive study

    After listening to comments made by the public and by county councilors regarding the pending reconfiguration of Trinity Drive at the Jan. 26 meeting, I was struck by three things.  
    The first was sadly how little I cared anymore about the fate of Trinity Drive. I simply don’t use it because I use alternative routes for Trinity, and my opinion would gain only a polite nod before being dismissed.

  • Community kindness touches local family

    My children and I are very grateful to family, friends and the wonderfully supportive Los Alamos community for all of the kindness and support you have provided to us following the sudden passing of Meg Kennison, wife and mother.  

  • Small business is state’s rural economic backbone

    In order for New Mexico’s rural cities and small towns to contribute fully to the nation’s economic recovery, we must enable small, mainstreet businesses to build a better future for themselves, their community, state and nation.

  • Thanks for the memories

    Santa Claus would like to thank all the families who stopped by on Christmas Eve to see the light display and receive candy canes at the top of Barranca Mesa Hill.
    I had more kids this year than ever before, which makes it all worth while.
    I would like to thank Raymond and his partner with the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities for their help in erecting our Christmas hot air balloon. I  would like to thank the gentleman who came by my house and gave me a monetary donation for the utility bill and thanked us for the display of lights.

  • Trinity’s an eyesore dangerous to walkers

    At the request of a previous writer and the county engineering department, I would like to express my view of the current options being presented for improving Trinity Drive.  I completely agree that Trinity is an eyesore and dangerous to pedestrians and bicyclists and some intersections are quite dangerous for vehicles as well.  It is a good idea to fix it.  

  • Preconceived views questioned

    During the recent county council candidates’ campaign, a constant theme was to “listen to the people.” A current hot button issue is redoing Trinity  Drive. I’m glad that I live in White Rock where most citizens at a large meeting expressed their disapproval of a roundabout on N.M. 4 — although a candidate  later told people the idea was shelved not because of citizen input but by the lab’s worry about its trucks using the road.

  • Rip out Trinity Drive completely

    I propose that the entire length of Trinity Drive be ripped out and replaced with a pedestrian park, which we can call Trinity Mall.  The county will put  in trees, shrubs, flower gardens, an aviary and walking and  bike paths.
