“Hidden Figures” is currently my choice for the best picture of 2016. The film was just released to the public Jan. 6 and surprised everyone by immediately jumping to the top of the charts. The popularity of the film is well deserved!
 
This is a period piece about the American space program in 1961 and about the people behind the scenes whose dedication to the effort made space flight possible for our nation.

Tie Smart Tools To New Pipelines

Politics leads the nation in constant fights for and against new pipelines. So why do so few partisans on either side sing out for smart tools on pipelines? No matter how you view pipelines, President Trump has timely chances to change the old ways.

By JAMES ROBINSON
Chairman, Republican Party of Los Alamos

Today, Jan. 20, we all got to witness the transition of power without an apparent heir, a war, murder or violence.

Emotions have run very high since the start of this presidential contest, and they will continue to be high, but that is the nature of our republic.

What we witnessed today was one leader with IMMENSE power graciously hand over that power to a citizen who spent over a year challenging his authority and platform.

Design trends, professional growth, product launches, networking, industry speakers, innovation, inspiration, learning opportunities, kitchens and baths…that’s what I experienced last week in Orlando at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), National Association of Home Builder’s (NAHB) International Builders Show and Design and Construction week.

I appreciate the recent posts by school board member and candidate Mr. Jim Hall. It was a pleasure to read about his march for civil rights and management skills. However, I feel that Mr. Hall has left some very important questions unanswered.

I feel that schools are the heart of our community. An organization made up of teachers, children, parents, staff members, volunteers, all of us; all of us, with our diverse backgrounds, skill sets, abilities, working together to bestow the best upon the next generation.
