All varieties of squash grow aggressively in northern New Mexico and are one of those staples in our diets that have an unusually long history in the region.
 
Part of the “three sisters” (corn, beans and squash), local pueblos have been cultivating squash in northern New Mexico for thousands of years.
 
They are well adapted to our climate and have long growing seasons. Heirloom varieties are especially hearty and are tolerant of our bouts with drought conditions.

Letter To The Editor: Response To Visal And Little

on May 17, 2019 - 5:24pm
By RICK NEBEL
Los Alamos

This is a response to Mr. Visal and Mr. Little on a new Wendy's. I, for one, am happy to see that someone is thinking about opening a Wendy's in Los Alamos. This represents a $2,000,000 to $3,500,000 investment in our community. I think it is great that someone is willing to make that kind of investment.

If you would prefer to have a KFC or Taco Bell, there is an easy way to fix that problem. Go purchase a franchise and open one yourself. Both KFC and Taco Bell have been tried up here before, and both of them failed.

Mr. Visel, Los Alamos County Council and Los Alamos P&Z,
 
I'm an extremely regular fast food eater (almost every work day), and completely agree with Mr. Visel -- we absolutely do not need another hamburger place.
 
It would be easier to count places that DON'T serve hamburgers than it would be to count the ones that do.
 
PLEASE get us some variety of fast food. In addition to those mentioned by Mr.

Letter To The Editor: No To Wendys

This town (Los Alamos) doesn’t need is another burger joint! So, before the County gives its OK for a Wendy’s let’s see if we can get something better like a Kentucky Fried Chicken (or Church’s), or a Taco Bell to take over the old McDonalds building.
 
Los Alamos is seriously lacking in its variety of choices for fast food places and another Burger Joint is certainly NOT the answer!

Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast In White Rock May 18

on May 9, 2019 - 4:01pm
KIWANIS News:
 
For years, Kiwanis has held several pancake breakfasts a year—always at the Betty Ehart Senior Center in Los Alamos.
 
However, the next one is going to be different. It’s scheduled for 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 18 at the White Rock Senior Center.
 
The breakfast will be free, but donations will be appreciated. (Kiwanis is still trying to make up the income it lost when ultra-dry conditions forced cancellation of the 2018 Kiwanis Fourth of July Fireworks in Overlook Park.)
 
Kiwanis suggests that if you live in White Rock (or Los Alamos), you should start your day

I come from a very long line of shepherds who settled in the northern hills of El Rito and La Madera in the late 1500s. My mother’s generation of the Ortega and Gonzales families, who were in this line of business, was the last to live on that working farm up north.
 
When I was a kid, she and Grandma both shared lots of memories about those hard working days, their fun times at dances held at the SPMDTU, and the long periods of time (months) when the women were left alone to run the
