on August 28, 2016 - 7:56am
Former Charter Review Board Member and Council Candidate

In June, the Los Alamos County Council voted to place on the General Election ballot the question of whether our County should continue to have an elected office of sheriff. Like Robert Gibson (, I plan to vote FOR this ballot question.

Pastor Granillo: Numb

Los Alamos


I've become so numb, I can't feel you there

Become so tired, so much more aware

By becoming this all I want to do

Is be more like me and be less like you.” Linkin Park (Numb)

There are two things that we all do in this world, even if we don’t realize it. We are influenced by the world around us, and we become an influence to others. We reciprocate influence. This is not a bad thing, it’s just a real thing.

A problem occurs, however, when we allow ourselves to be influenced to a point of giving up our identity out of a fear of rejection.
