DPLA News:

The Democratic Party of Los Alamos County will host a viewing of Michael Moore in Trumpland beginning at 6:30 p.m. with a pot luck followed at 7 p.m. with the movie.

Pirates Invade County’s Annual Employee Luncheon!

on October 28, 2016 - 10:50am

A disconcerting band of pirates, suspiciously resembling County senior management, are spotted this morning hanging around Oppie and Groves outside Fuller Lodge. The pirate on the far left bears a strong resemblance to County Manager Harry Burgess, while the wench with a sword standing fourth from left is likely related to County Communications Director Julie Habiger and the man standing second from the right wearing a red do-rag under a skull and crossbones hat is thought to be a first cousin of Police Chief Dino Sgambellone. This unruly bunch is expected to gather at 11 a.m.
