Wind River: The Wind River flows through the canyon and offers a variety of outdoor opportunities. The Wind River Indian Reservation lies to the west of the canyon. The river changes names at the north end of the canyon at ‘The Wedding of the Waters’ when the river exits the reservation. From that point on the river is named the Bighorn River. Photo by Gary

Fr. Glenn: Be Content!

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

Harry Potter fans will likely remember—not too fondly—Dudley, Harry’s spoiled cousin whose taunting Harry was forced to endure. And yet …  Dudley’s obnoxious entitled attitude is not so uncommon these days.

For instance, it’s not infrequent that people come to priests and ministers with the same plaint directed at Jesus: “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me.” (Luke 12:13) Sorry, dude (my phrase; not Jesus’); if that other person isn’t doing right, his conscience is not going to be suddenly shocked into doing so. Anyway … how do I know that you’re

Jimenez And Hedges: Orphaned Oil And Gas Wells

James Jimenez

By CAROL HEDGES and
JAMES JIMENEZ  

The physical and economic health of our states depends on fair and responsible management of publicly owned resources — everything from our school buildings to our state and national parks.

But because of the broken federal oil and gas leasing system, our schools have received less-than-promised funding and discarded oil wells are polluting our cherished public lands. Thankfully, several of our leaders in Washington are working to put our communities and public lands first and manage our transition away from fossil fuels.    

In January,

Chandler: To Utilities Board Regarding UAMPS CFPP Exit … Take Unexpected Off-ramp Opportunity At July 21 Meeting

By GEORGE CHANDLER
Los Alamos

To: Members of the Los Alamos County Utilities Board

Re: UAMPS CFPP exit at 7/21/21 meeting

I hope you will choose to take this unexpected off-ramp rather than continue to delay the inevitable. The UAMPS CFPP project looks to be slowly dying, because not enough communities believe it to be a viable project.

I recognize there’s not a lot of money at stake, but neither is there a lot of hope, and it’s a distraction we don’t need while trying to plan for the carbon-free future. If we have to have nuclear, maybe we should look into the Gates/Buffet project in Wyoming.

David Davis: Remembering Paula Roybal Sanchez

By DAVID DAVIS 
The Memory Care Alliance

I first met Paula and her husband, Gary, when they were participants in the very first caregiving class I taught while employed at the Alzheimer’s Association.

Paula’s mother, Ruby, lived with Alzheimer’s and had passed away from the disease several years before.

Both she and Gary provided for her care until her death. After taking that caregiving course, they actively taught the same program to other caregivers in Los Alamos, Española and in their home town of Nambé.

After getting to know them both, I realized I was not alone. There were other past

By GEORGE MORSE
Sports & Outdoors
Los Alamos Daily Post

New Mexico continues to benefit from seasonal monsoon moisture. Although there have been some flooding problems in some parts of the state, for the most part the moisture has benefitted both fish and anglers. Stream flows are higher than they were last year and water temperatures are cooler.

Reservations for camping sites at New Mexico State Parks may be made by calling 877.667.7787 for reservations. Some campsites may be open on a first come, first served basis. It is beneficial to check the state parks website for conditions at individual
