The answer lies deep in the brain.

Think of the human brain as a billion-person orchestra with every neuron playing in harmony to coordinate the body’s movement. Now, imagine some of these neurons playing out of tune, resulting in uncontrollable tremors, making even simple, everyday activities difficult and sometimes seemingly impossible.  It’s a daily battle faced by more than 10 million people with Parkinson’s.&n

Letter To The Editor: This Is Teaching…

School Board Candidate

A few weeks ago, at a Friday summer concert, I recognized a social studies teacher from the high school I used to work with, Johnathan Lathrop.

I always remember something he did years ago at a staff meeting. At this meeting, he had written the name of every student on a piece of paper and each piece of paper was taped to a table. This activity was inspired by one of the 40 developmental assets, a framework of preventative measures, positive experiences, and qualities that young people need to grow up healthy, caring, and responsible (link).

Santa Fe National Forest: More Abandoned Campfires – Some Campers Still Don’t Get It

SFNF News:

SANTA FE – Although the forest-wide numbers have improved over the summer season, fire staff on the Jemez Ranger District of the Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF) found at least a dozen abandoned campfires over the Labor Day weekend, bringing the year’s total for that one district alone to a whopping 164 abandoned campfires.

“And that’s 164 unnecessary opportunities for a wildfire to get out of control and threaten firefighter and public safety,” Jemez District Ranger Brian Riley said. “Someone’s carelessness puts lives, property and natural resources at unnecessary risk.”

Lauritzen: Life After 50 … So Much To Do!

Executive Director

I have a face for radio and a heart for fundraising! When I was a young radio intern, I worked the overnight shift, until a new young student came in the door. I don’t recall his name, but he was an adorable, red-haired, freckle faced, high school student, who always said he had a face for radio, and it stuck with me ever since.

I do have a heart for fundraising, relationship building and promotion, too. There is never enough time in the day to talk about all of the good that takes place. Here are just a few items in store for the month of September, at your local

Letter To The Editor: Response To Serna Position Paper

Los Alamos

This is a response to one part of Marco Serna’s economic position paper, in particular to his statements on the trade war with China. The “International pressure” approach that he espouses was tried for eight years during the Obama administration and got nowhere. All that is going to do is result in a lot of talk, and no substance. 

However, there is a far more significant problem going on in China today that the public is largely unaware of. One year ago, the Chinese had about one billion hogs in their swine herd. 350 million of these hogs have died or been

The Court issued the ruling Friday in upholding the first-degree murder conviction of a Clovis man, David Gutierrez II, for a 2002 killing. During his trial, Gutierrez unsuccessfully tried to block the testimony of his ex-wife, with whom he was married at the time of the murder, and a second wife.
