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. You might want to find out why that happened before you invest.
This Peregrine Falcon was rescued Tuesday morning in Los Alamos. The falcon will become an education bird for the Raptor Center. It must have flown into the power lines and burnt off part of her wing and appeared to be hopping across the property and down into the canyon to get back to its nest. A smaller bird flew to her and then flew away. Dr. Kathleen Ramsey said the recued falcon is healthy. Courtesy photo

The high water level from this year’s snowmelt and runoff makes it easy to see why the nickname ‘Decap Bridge’ is popular with rafters, who sometimes must portage their rafts around this obstacle. Photo by Sharon Snyder.
