Belen High School students reacted with grace, respect
I would like to recognize the respect shown by the Belen High School student body. An assembly was held the morning the school found out about the most recent death of a student. I was there as an outsider.
The feelings of pain and sorrow were being expressed everywhere. It was almost unbearable to watch. There were educators and staff, also obviously miserable, sharing that moment with 1,200 students.
The important point is that every single teenager in that gym remained respectful and appropriate. It was truly a heroic moment, a time in which the students of Belen High School need to be commended.

Thanks for help with trip
I returned last week from a very educational trip to Washington, D.C., with other Los Lunas Middle School students and staff. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following businesses that helped me by allowing me to hold bake sales, collecting donations and contributing to my fund-raising.
Remember to patronize these businesses that take an interest in our youth: Henrietta’s, K-Bob’s, Albert-son’s, Los Lunas World Lynk and a very special thank you to Bristles Art Supply. You helped me to make this educational, memorable trip.
They helped clean up area
La Asociacion de la Comunidad de San Clemente would like to publicly thank Robin Ver Eecke of Tierra Bonita of Valencia County, and Betty Behrend, utilities director for the Village of Los Lunas, for helping us clean up our community on the west mesa. On Saturday, April 27, Robin Ver Eecke provided plastic bags, sodas and work gloves to our residents for our annual cleanup day, which coincided with the Great American Cleanup Day in Valencia County. Betty Behrend opened the village transfer station on Highway 6 to allow our residents to dump trash collected from the mesa. The residents turned out in force, and our cleanup day was a great success!
