Letter To The Editor: Worthy Woman

We usually don’t write an opinion letter to the newspaper. After receiving a derogatory flyer in the mail against Christine Chandler, we decided to write an opinion supporting Christine Chandler for the New Mexico House Dist. 43.

Christine and I (Nancy) worked together on two cases at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and I found her excellent in working with the facts and picking out the truth for a fair, legal decision. Christine has always listened, weighed the facts and worked hard for the people of Los Alamos.

As with all community issues, there

Nesmith: When Will True Republicans Take A Stand?

I fail to understand why the Republican Party of Los Alamos has not repudiated and disavowed Lisa Shin’s candidacy for State House District 43. Her campaign employs some of the most vitriolic, hateful, unethical, shameful, misleading, disgraceful and immoral tactics that I’ve seen in my 72 years. 

Her false statements, her misleading and phony “Los Alamos Post” newspaper mailer as well as her most recent mailer (a nearly classic example of morally contaminated and corrupt political chicanery), her lack of knowledge of veteran affairs, her total lack of

Letter To The Editor: Time For A Qualified Judge

I strongly encourage Los Alamos Voters to vote for Elizabeth Allen as municipal court judge. She is the only candidate that has law credentials, and she has plenty of experience involving what the municipal court handles. She has been running her own law firm for over 10 years and has shown her commitment to our community through her involvement in the Los Alamos Teen Court.

I first met Elizabeth three years ago when I joined the Los Alamos Teen Court as a freshman.

Fr. Glenn: What Must I Do?

A beautiful Gospel reading in the Catholic Mass this weekend—one of the most poignant encounters in the scriptures. A rich man in fine clothes throws himself at the feet of a wandering preacher and his dusty band, obviously having heard of, or witnessed, Jesus’ teaching and miracles. Full of enthusiasm, he calls out: “Good teacher!”… but Jesus replies: “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone.”

Jesus doesn’t want the man to get caught up in desperate hero-worship, as many do with charismatic leaders.

World Futures: Ethics, Technology & Time – Part One

World Futures Institute

People have been studying and debating ethics for a long time, at least relative to our perception of humanity. During this time period there has been an acceleration of the growth of technology. On Sept. 8, 1966, the first Star Trek episode aired. In the Star Trek episodes a device called a communicator was used to allow voice communication between an individual on a planet or elsewhere and the Starship Enterprise.

Letter To The Editor: Please Vote For Judge Alan Kirk!

Los Alamos County Council
I urge the voters of Los Alamos County to re-elect Judge Alan Kirk. Alan is seeking his sixth four-year term as Municipal Judge. Alan has lived in Los Alamos for 60 years and served as Los Alamos Police Chief before becoming a judge. Many times, the voters of Los Alamos have endorsed Alan for his outstanding service to our community.
Others have also recognized Alan’s judgement and vision.
