  • Living on wrong side of screen

    There’s something wrong with my wife. Yeah, she’s definitely not normal. I saw her loading the clothes washer and she wasn’t singing. She wasn’t dancing.  She wasn’t even smiling.  In fact, she seemed downright bored.  For some reason, doing the laundry didn’t fulfill a cosmic sense of purpose for her.  Come to think of it, there was no lively background music either.
    We must be using the wrong brand of detergent.

  • The next step forward

    The long awaited Trinity Site Redevelopment moved closer to reality with the announcement that North American Development Group (NADG) would be the recommended developer for the 15-acre site that was previously  home to the Los Alamos Public Schools district office and a number of county buildings.
    For many years, it has been the dream of community members to turn the site into a commercial and retail zone. More and more, it looks like that is going to happen.

  • Thanks for taking away my signs

    Interesting thing this Nov. 3 morning. I noticed my political signs were gone. Why would somebody steal my signs after the election? Oh, well. At least now I won’t have to dispose of them.
    But on my way to work, I noticed that nearly all of the signs in my neighborhood were gone. As a matter of fact, they were gone from Smith’s, from Rover Boulevard and from N.M. 4.

  • Generous souls will discover many local worthy causes

    The LANL United Way campaign has been extended for another week, and there are still opportunities to designate for your favorite nonprofit or the LANL match. There are many worthy causes in Los Alamos and Northern New Mexico. Groups such as Self Help, Inc. operate without fees for service. Thanks to Bethlehem Lutheran Church, the organization operates with almost no overhead costs and uses donated dollars to benefit clients directly. Projects such as the Children’s Tools for School project are entirely run by board members and community volunteers.

  • Audience absence was astounding

    For the second time my wife and I drove over from Phoenix to see a play put on by the Olions Club of Los Alamos High School.
    For the second time, we were energized by these young people.
    “An Enemy Of The People” by Henrik Ibsen is serious drama. We found it amazing that a high school drama group would  even attempt to portray such a demanding production, much less deliver it with all the force Ibsen intended.

  • You can’t fool them all

    “You may fool all of the people some of the time, you can even fool some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”   
    That hoary adage originated with Honest Abe and conceivably might offer consolation to some candidates and voters today as we climb out of the muck and mud that passed for Campaign 2010.
