Letter to the Editor: To Catch A Thief

By Nancy Coombs, Marketing Director
Fuller Lodge Art Center

On behalf of the staff at Fuller Lodge Art Center I’d like to extend a heart-felt “thank you” to our volunteer Deborah Stone-Richard and to the Los Alamos Police Department for their efforts in chasing and apprehending a shoplifter on Nov. 28.

Although our staff was suspicious that the woman was pocketing items as she walked around the gallery/gift shop, there was no direct evidence of theft inside the shop.

Deborah’s shift ended just as the woman left the Art Center, and she chose to follow her. As the suspect Read More

Are Trusts Just for the Wealthy?

As an attorney who has practiced primarily in the areas of trusts and estates for the past 20 years, I frequently hear people say that they are simply not wealthy enough to have a trust.

As each one of us has a unique personality, each one of us has a unique set of circumstances which will dictate the form of our estate plan.

Contrary to common belief, it is not Read More

By Diana Martinez
Senior Program Director
The Family YMCA

Local businesses field requests all year for support of worthy causes. My experience is that our local businesses are often more generous than the corporate giants.

I hope our community remembers this and buys gifts and certificates locally not just at Christmas, but all year. The Y’s latest event was a half marathon and 5K race and many businesses came though yet again, but so many more give in other events to other charities.

Thank you to our business community. And special thanks to this event’s sponsors: Alpine Laser Dental, McDonalds, Read More

Column: I Am Flummoxed!

Column by Elena Yang

Travel is always a tricky venture for musicians who play large instruments, especially by plane. How many of us would trust the airlines these days to check in our luggage that contains our livelihood?

So, Mr. Harrell has for years been buying a full-price ticket for his cello, and registered “Mr. Cello” with Read More
