The whisper of his passage across the desert disappears as thoroughly as the morning dew dries under the unrelenting heat of New Mexico’s sun. He leans on a hiking pole and takes in his surroundings.

Los Alamos Daily Post
 
Winter simply doesn’t want to let go this year. It has turned cold and it could even freeze this late in the spring. That would be a bummer because it looks like a bumper crop of fruit this year.
 
The weather should warm back up quickly The rivers are still swollen with runoff and with snow still falling at high elevations, it looks like we could be well into June before they start dropping. It’s been on heck of a year with the weather and it’s still not over.
 
The prime fishing seems to be in the smaller lakes, as nearly all of them

By TIM L
Los Alamos
 
Thank you Rick Nebel for responding to Mr. Visal and Mr. Little. There are many of us who are happy to see our town growing in much needed areas such as food options.
 
We shouldn’t be negative on anyone wanting to invest in our town to make it just a little nicer. I am not a big fan of Wendy’s either, but it will be much nicer than the old abandoned building located there now and some people will be happy to eat there.
 
And not to worry to anyone who does not like Wendy’s or prefers another restaurant as there is room for other restaurants that you may enjoy
