Home Country: Clean Your Boots

Home Country
Our resident cowboy, Steve, brought us the shocking news: cowpuncher Three-Chord Cortez, that bunkhouse balladeer, plans to study opera, in hopes an aria or three will make him even more attractive to girls during a serenade.
Apparently, singing La Donna Mobile might be more effective than “You don’t know whatlonesome is ‘til you start herding co-o-o-ows” … especially if she doesn’t speak European.
I thought I’d jot down a few opera-watching truths for ol’ T.C. just to help him out.
1. Take off your hat. You can keep jujubes in it if you want.

Letter To The Editor: Support Regional Transit GRT Reauthorization

on October 14, 2018 - 6:30pm
Los Alamos County Councilor

The citizens of four counties, including Los Alamos, voted in 2008 to authorize a 1/8 percen Gross Receipts Tax (GRT) increment to support regional mass transit. Although no ending date was voted upon, these counties imposed a Jan. 1, 2024 sunset date.

On this November’s ballot, we are asked to reauthorize the tax by removing the sunset date. I strongly support a yes vote to continue the high value transit services that it provides. For people here who don’t have a car or the ability to drive, good transit service is a lifeline.

All tax
