  • A busy Friday night in Los Alamos

    There are a lot of options for residents Friday night in Los Alamos.

    It will be Los Alamos Monitor Night with a free concert at Ashley Pond.

    Playing will be the Parker Millsap Band with Michael Rose featured on stand-up bass.

    “Parker Millsap is a young singer-songwriter that’s most likely going to be a big star in the near future,” Organizer Russ Gordon said. He plays Americana-folk-rock-blues-gospel and reminds me of some of the best of this genre; heroes like Tom Waits, Ray LaMontagne, Ryan Adams, John Mayer, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Keller Williams and then there’s Dylan and Woody Guthrie.”

    Los Alamos National Laboratory Bradbury Science Museum will host “What’s in a Click: The Wonders of High Speed Imaging,” from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday.

    Laboratory personnel and their families and the general public can learn about the advances of high-speed cameras and the discoveries scientists at LANL have made with them.

    The museum partners with Fuller Lodge Art Center, the Los Alamos Historical Museum and Los Alamos County among others in the Downtown Friday Night program.

    Third in a series

    The actions of New Mexico Department of Game and Fish Director Jim Lane were not the only questionable ones at the New Mexico Game and Fish Commission’s May 23 meeting.

    Statements and questions by commissioners revealed that most had little or no knowledge of current legislation regarding the Valles Caldera National Preserve or of proposed legislation that would place it under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service.

    In fact, the motion made by Commissioner Tom Arvas and unanimously approved reads, “I move to authorize Director Lane to oppose via letter and any other means any change in management or ownership of the Valles Caldera Preserve.”

    Under the current legislation, such a motion is untenable. The trust will dissolve if it fails to achieve financial self-sufficiency by 2015. No one, including the preserve’s board of trustees, expects the trust to meet that goal, even if it is granted a possible five-year extension.

    “The problem with the trust model–and I think it’s a failed model for public land here–is that it requires that self-sustaining formula, which limits access,” said VCNP board Chair Kent Salazar.
