Look who’s talking:

What’s your spark? According to Los Alamos, Morrie Pongratz is both a Living Treasure and the Voice of the Hilltoppers.
Let’s discuss “why vetting is vital” and why he says civic efforts must cherchez l’argent (follow the money).
Learn what it means to make community service the mortar that cements local government, and one’s personal life.
With a focus on youth, Pongratz will share insider knowledge of the LAPS Foundation, Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and Kiwanas Club’s efforts.
To hear Pongratz describe his community involvement is to experience a man who cares deeply about that community and pursues a profound commitment to its well-being, and its youth in particular.
These days, he is also the voice of LAHS football, soccer, volleyball and basketball.

Where’s Your Medical Home? House calls may sound rather turn of the century, but they still exist.
In the age of “the business of medicine,” Dr. Tom Csanadi is more likely to talk about the “art of medicine.”
How many times have you been asked a question that really means, “What are your symptoms?”
Dr. Tom, as he’s known by his young patients, has worked 14 years in private pediatric practice, the last one in solo practice, and he’s more likely to ask “how is your life, your health and your attitude?”
From 1993 to 1998, Dr. Tom worked for the Indian Health Service in Gallup.
When he’s not seeing patients, he enjoys music, painting, writing, tennis, coaching and running.
