When I was selected to join the Charter Review Committee, I approached the task very cautiously and conservatively because any changes that might be recommended required a very thorough vetting process to ensure the right decisions were made to our community’s fundamental law.
My fellow committee members were equally dedicated, and we had many open and transparent discussions at public meetings that explored the issues from all aspects, bringing out researched facts and practical examples of what needed to be changed.
In the end, our report to council Read More
Residents are invited to attend the dedication ceremony for the new “Satch Cowan Trail” at 11 a.m. Monday, Oct. 22 at the trailhead near the existing Quemazon Trail in Western Area.

I recently participated in a League of Women Voters forum to express my opposition to the four proposed amendments to the Los Alamos County Charter that are on this year’s election ballot.
The Los Alamos Daily Post recently published a letter from Kyle Wheeler stating that, at that forum, I said that “the way the Charter Review Committee grouped the items makes sense.” I am writing this letter to explain that the above statement is
an exaggeration of my comments. I do not support the way these amendments have been grouped and I oppose the tremendous toughening Read More

III. Then, there is the purely bully power.
Bully power is embodied in Draco Malfoy and his cronies. Of course, one could argue that Voldemort was a bully too; after all, a bully strikes fear in the victim.
However, Voldemort was extremely skillful and intelligent in applying his skills to manipulate, to strike, to conquer. Read More

To say this place is centered in nowhere may be a bit of a stretch. It actually nips at the heels of one of those major sprawling communities that are located everywhere.
Still, when my parents and I drove into Corrales via Bernalillo recently, we were certain we had arrived but not entirely sure where.
Corrales and Bernalillo may tread on each others’ toes but driving down a road lined with trees that create a dappled pattern of sunlight and seeing horses roaming through pastures in the small town of Corrales, it is hard to believe that minutes away is a huge collection Read More
