    Stop the Bypass Road

    Dear Editor,

    A new road is poised to open (see photo on p. 3 of Nov. 8 Los Alamos Monitor). From the top of West Road (near where it used to intersect State Road 4) you will be able to travel west, directly to the ski hill, bypassing LANL’s western guard station. DOE built this highway through TA-62, along a former road that accessed a large water tank.

Not odd as if I suddenly liked marmalade, but a disconcerting, unfamiliar odd – as if the innate spectacularness of the universe swooned into some black hole, leaving only a glaring, poorly constructed meta-fiction for me to inhabit.I shouldn’t blame the universe. It’s my body. A physiological, hopefully fleeing catastrophe has obliterated my ability to dance, play tennis, go for a trail run or even work. Sitting at my desk has become too strenuous. Driving home. Making tea.

  • Trinity shopping and Airport Basin

    Back when 529 was under debate, one of the concerns/ issues was the omnibus nature of the ordinance. It placed many in the difficult position of voting for something one was against in order to vote for something one agreed with, or, conversely, voting for something wanted in order to vote against something not wanted.

  • Honor sports teams on front page

    There are several reasons why the LAHS boys’ victory in the state cross country 4A finals should have been on the front page of Sunday’s paper instead of the back page. Academy, ranked number two in the entire USA, had beaten Los Alamos four times during the season and were overwhelming favorites. They scored two of the top three places in the race and had three very fast runners to back them up.
