Letter To The Editor: Sheehey Endorses Los Alamos Public School Bonds

first_imgBy PETE SHEEHEYVice ChairLos Alamos County CouncilLike many of us in Los Alamos, I know I owe a lot to good public education. Tax revenues spent wisely on education are a good investment in our future. That is why I urge Los Alamos citizens to vote yes for continuation of our Public Schools Bonds.This vote will not increase property taxes; it will simply continue the present tax rates so that the schools can continue to rehabilitate and update our aging schools. Los Alamos support of these bond issues enables us to receive additional New Mexico state schools capital funding, multiplying the effect of our tax dollars.You can vote every day except Sunday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. until Saturday, Nov. 2 at the Los Alamos Municipal Building or the White Rock Town Hall. On Tuesday Nov. 5, you can vote from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at these locations or at the Golf Course, Betty Ehart Senior Center, or UNM-LA Building 6 room 631. Please vote yes for our children’s future!last_img read more

Los Alamos County Social Services Manager: Keep Up Good Work On Social Distancing, Practice Self-Care, Help Others

first_imgSocial Services Manager Donna Casados COUNTY News:As Los Alamos County wraps up another week under the State of New Mexico’s “Stay At Home” executive order, Social Services Manager Donna Casados commented upon the current situation and commended the community on taking positive, proactive steps to comply with the order.“We’ve observed that many of our residents are taking the order seriously,” Casados said, noting that the mitigation measure of social distancing remains the best course of action when individuals must take care of urgent business or tasks that require them to move around in Los Alamos. “Keeping six feet between yourself and others, continuing to have good hygiene with frequent hand-washing or use of hand sanitizers, and staying at home – these are all good ways to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community,” she said. “While you may feel that you are not at risk, our community does include those who are high-risk, and so taking precautions when out in public means you are doing your part to protect others who might become seriously ill if they contract COVID-19.”She encourages the community to follow the advice provided by the Governor in a recent news conference.“If you need groceries, send one person to the store with a list – don’t take the entire family,” she said. “Ask if you can shop for other family members or friends and drop off their groceries on their door step. Having fewer people in stores helps mitigate the chance of infecting others.”Casados said it’s also important to take time for self-care during this stressful situation, and offers helpful tips from the Centers for Disease Control:Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting;Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals. Exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs;Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy; andConnect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.“Taking care of yourself, your friends, and your family can help you cope with stress. Helping others cope with their stress can also make our community stronger,” Casados said.last_img read more

New Mexico Senate President Pro Tem Mary Kay Papen Signs On To Letter Asking Congress To Support State And Local Communities In Coronavirus Stabilization Funds

first_imgSenate President Pro Tem Mary Kay PapenSTATE SENATE News:SANTA FE — New Mexico Senate President Pro Tem Mary Kay Papen has signed a letter to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to provide stabilization funds for local communities, cities and towns across the United States struggling amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, or the CARES Act, signed into law March 27, provided $150 billion in stabilization funds for states and larger communities, but capped localities able to receive direct support at those with populations of more than 500,000. States across the country continue to spend billions in order to meet the COVID-19 response while seeing falling revenues.“State and local governments are on the front lines in combating COVID-19 and protecting our citizens. The health crisis we’re in has been devastating and has taken a tremendous toll on New Mexicans statewide, but it’s been particularly hard on our Native American communities in the northwest region of the state,” Sen. Papen said. “The ensuing economic hardship in front of us is unlike any challenge we’ve faced in decades, and we’ll need every economic tool in the toolbox to make the state whole again. But every state is different and has unique needs. Additional funding giving state and local community leaders the flexibility and discretion to apply monies where most desperately needed is what we are asking for today. I am proud to join my fellow presiding officers to ask Congress to provide this much-needed funding for our states and cities.”“Communities across the country are struggling with the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak,” Maryland Senate President Bill Ferguson said. “Our states have lost billions of dollars in revenues and are looking at massive budget cuts to essential services including our first responders, our education systems and our human services. We need Congress to step in so that we have flexibility in meeting the needs of our citizens and rebuilding our economies after this health crisis has passed.”The letter is signed by presiding officers from 16 states and territories.See the letter (HERE)last_img read more

Mapping Methane Super-Emitters In Oil & Gas Fields: A Tiered Remote Sensing Strategy

first_imgA San Joaquin Valley case study suggests that our knowledge of methane inventories is vastly underestimated. Without an ongoing comprehensive methane monitoring program, California will not meet its statewide air regulation requirements. Increasing the confidence in satellite, airborne, and ground-based sensors will help move the needle toward a more accurate local, regional, and international understanding of methane emission sources and rates. A practical and tiered remote sensing approach using satellite, airborne, and ground-based sensors will improve local, regional, and international understanding of methane emission sources and rates.

Posts From The Road: Fish Creek Falls

first_imgFish Creek: Farther down stream from the water fall Fish Creek levels out somewhat as it flows toward town and eventually flows into the Yampa River. Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com By GARY WARRENPhotographerFormerly of Los AlamosWhen visiting Steamboat Springs, Colo., it is easy to be drawn to the many downtown activities, shops, and restaurants. In the winter, life centers around skiing and snow boarding in this mountain town.However, Steamboat Springs  is also known for its natural beauty. There are miles of trails for hiking and biking and the Yampa River running just a block off of the main street through town offers fishing and other water activities.Fish Creek Falls less than five miles from downtown up a paved road and is perhaps the most popular hike in town. We have visited the area several times but had never taken time to view the falls until a recent visit. There are two falls, a lower falls and upper falls. On this visit, we chose to view the lower falls and we were not disappointed. The ideal time to view a water fall in this part of the country would be early summer shortly after the snow melts but Fish Creek Falls flows year-round.Editor’s note: Longtime Los Alamos photographer Gary Warren and his wife Marilyn are traveling around the country and he shares his photographs, which appear in the ‘Posts from the Road’ series published in the Sunday edition of the Los Alamos Daily Post. Fish Creek Falls: This view of the 280 foot Fish Creek Falls in Colorado is one of several viewpoints across the canyon. Water from several mountain lakes in the Rabbit Ears Range flow into Fish Creek. Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com River and Falls: From river level looking up towards the water falls visitors get a different view and perspective of the falls. The river also reveals thousands of rocks and boulders, which have traveled through the creek carried by the rushing waters. Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com Downstream: A view of the river looking downstream still shows the fast flowing river waters over rocks and boulders but this view is more calming than seeing the water rushing at you.
