As President of the Los Alamos County Little League I want to thank our two local Pizza restaurants Time Out Pizza and Home Run Pizza for their long time support.

I would like to address some misunderstandings regarding a couple of lots addressed in the new Comprehensive Plan that have been a topic of conversation lately. 

The lots in question are two of three lots directly across from the Los Alamos County Airport. All three lots are currently zoned as “INDUSTRIAL USE”. The County Council chose to designate the two lots along the road as “Mixed Use” with the third lot along the canyon that includes the Canyon Rim Trail being designated as “Open Space”.

This is in response to the recent Letter to the Editor (letter) by the League of Women Voters. 
My understanding is that Hillary Clinton spent twice as much as Donald Trump on the last election. How did THAT work out for her! Money isn’t the problem. The problem is us.
