Letter To The Editor: A Start To Some Basic Rules For Our Discussions Here At The Los Alamos Daily Post

Bon Vivant Paleontologist

As a paleontologist, I have had a lot of experience in reviewing scientific papers that have been submitted for publication. Back in the day, I probably averaged a dozen or more a year. When I did review, I never did it anonymously: I always signed my reviews.

I did this many reasons. First of all, I thought (and think) it was more respectful to the effort the author(s) made to produce the paper.

At this point in the Cliburn Competition, the jury has heard more than 52 hours of music and there are many hours to go. Committing to serve on a Cliburn jury is a major commitment for people who already have busy performing and teaching schedules.

I had a serious accident Feb. 27 on Diamond Drive at the intersection of Sandia, in front of the old Metzger Service Station. I did serious damage to my 2015 Tesla S and another vehicle.

I would like to talk to anyone who witnessed the accident or observed me or my actions immediately following the accident. If you were there, I would appreciate hearing from you, I can be reached at 505.709.0025 and can receive voice or text.

There were some young men who were very helpful to myself and the driver and passenger of the vehicle I struck, that I would like to

Letter To The Editor: Nuisance Ordinance

“Sometimes, ordinances and regulations are passed with the support of the majority of folks in a community...” (LA Daily Post, Vol. III, No. 21) (link).

And sometimes they're not. They are passed because the only ones who showed up are the ones who supported the proposal. What happened to those who might have opposed the ordinance? It could have been apathy, it could have been personal situations, which prevented an appearance, or a host of other reasons.

“Wonder Woman”, the much anticipated DC comics movie, has arrived to cheering audiences. The film provides a backstory for Diana Prince, princess of the Amazons, later nicknamed “Wonder Woman” as she joins the DC pantheon of superheroes.
 
Gal Gadot, the sensually super-buff Israeli actress, debuted as Wonder Woman in the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie just last year, starting a noisy buzz about Gadot getting her own movie.

Letter To The Editor: County Council Vs. Sheriff

The insatiable efforts made by many past and present members of the Los Alamos County Council to eliminate the duly elected office of the sheriff should be a concern to all citizens in this county. 
 
The sheriff is accountable to the people by vote. The office of police chief is accountable to the county council by appointment. Sheriff Lucero has served honorably in Santa Fe and Los Alamos counties for over 29 years. 
 
We the people have voted to retain the office of sheriff as stated in the New Mexico constitution yet certain members of the county

Letter To The Editor: Do We Want Or Need A Bicycle Flow Trail (Part 2)

on June 5, 2017 - 2:04pm

In early May, I wrote a letter to the Los Alamos Daily Post notifying the public of a plan to build a bicycle flow trail in one of our canyons (probably Bayo Canyon) and the reasons I thought it is a bad idea. If you didn't see this letter, it can be read here.
 
There was no response from the public to this letter, possibly because it was published during the furor over the Rec Bond issue. It is also possible that some readers thought the flow trail was part of the Rec Bond. It was not, and is a separate initiative funded by the County Council.
