  • Get into the excitement - and vote

    Dear Editor,

    With the excitement of the early Democratic presidential caucus behind New Mexican voters, many may not realize that the June 3 New Mexico primary election is fast approaching. There are still many things to be decided in both parties, including nominees for the Los Alamos County Council, and for the open House seat in the 3rd Congressional District.

  • DOE needs to clean up its waste

    Dear Editor,

    DOE needs to remember its requirement to clean up the environment before it creates more waste.

    The Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club asks that all work and expenditure toward nuclear pit production at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) be halted until the DOE recommits itself and its funds to the nuclear cleanup of LANL on the schedule to which it had previously agreed.

  • Volunteers needed to support runners

    Dear Editor,

  • Los Alamos can foster peace

    Dear Editor,

    It is our national policy, “peace through strength.” We threaten the countries of the world with our nuclear bombs. 9/11 was a response to our bellicose threats. When the playing field is not level people wrap themselves in high explosives and airplanes.

  • Skate arguments give youth no credit

    Dear Editor,

    This whole skate park issue is getting way out of hand. The one thing that everyone seems to be ignoring in the letters of opposition is the very carefully veiled prejudice against young people in this town. It has to stop now.

  • YourBook: Help us help them

    Dear Editor,

    The Los Alamos Middle School yearbook staff is attempting to launch a new program aimed at providing deserving students with a yearbook. We are calling this the YourBook Program.

    The LAMS faculty and staff have identified worthy students who deserve a yearbook but simply cannot afford one. The program is designed to put yearbooks in the hands of good kids caught in a difficult situation.

  • Many object to skate park location

    Dear Editor,

    I don’t think many people in Los Alamos object to the idea of providing a skate park for young people, though one might wonder whether the $500,000 plus it will probably end up costing, once the hidden costs are added, is really the best use of our county funds right now. But there is indeed a serious issue with the proposed location in front of Mesa Public Library.

    Simply put, the county council has never provided the community as a whole with an adequate opportunity to provide input on the location.

  • Processes do need streamlining

    Dear Editor,

  • Put your money ... wherever you want

    Dear Editor,

  • Subsidies are the price of failure

    Dear Editor,
