It takes a lot of work and patience, but it is worth it if you have the space, the time, and the inclination. When we bought our first home in 1979 here in Los Alamos, we chose a location in the Eastern Area, within walking distance to all the downtown facilities. We dug out the lawn a small section at a time and planted an ever-expending vegetable garden. Seeds can be donated at the Mesa Public Library, the White Rock Branch Library, and at PEEC.

By GEORGE CHANDLERDemocratic candidateLos Alamos County AssessorThe last time I ran for office in Los Alamos was in 1994. Today the Party provides me with an online list of “likely voters” in a walkable neighborhood (with GPS tracking), the voters selected by an algorithm as likely to vote for me. In 1994 the Monitor was the medium of information exchange for all things Los Alamos, so it was Letters to the Editor. Such then are Richard Skolnick and David Hanson, who have asked this of Los Alamos Candidates. I also pledge my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor to fight against any effort to undermine the election process, to intimidate voters, or to rise in rebellion against the United States of America.1 month ago Los Alamos Daily Post
By LYNN HANRAHANLos AlamosThank you Mr. Chandler for keeping us up to date about what our County is considering regarding ADUs. You can already hear the cries of NIMBY in certain political circles who believe any development is good. Whenever a little old lady dies in Alpine Austria, earth movers move in, houses are demolished, and bloated ADUs appear. As I weeded them from the rock garden I couldn’t help but notice the little white car full of county development agents staring at a neighbor’s tree day, after day, after day. Do not allow County Development to control your property.1 month ago Los Alamos Daily Post
