No one's laughing at 'Brand X'

There are train wrecks and then there are TRAIN WRECKS. “Brand X,” English comedian Russell Brand’s new talk show is one of the latter. Actually, it’s not quite a talk show because there aren’t really any guests. Unless you count the guy that graduated from Harvard (Matt Stoller) that graces Brand’s stage and answers (or tries to answer) ridiculous, confusing questions that Brand asks him.

A White Rock man – who was arrested Thursday morning for aggravated assault and battery - was transported to the hospital after he became combative in the police car that was taking him to jail.

Deputy fire chief Justin Grider confirmed the fire was out around 1 p.m. It looked as if the fire was out earlier but LAFD was contending with hotspots in the rafters of the chapel.

Grider said the chapel is a total loss. The main church received smoke damage. There also was an area in the back of the church that burned and received significant smoke damage.

“We think the fire started in the chapel,” Grider said. “But we don't know for sure. It is still under investigation.”

DPU sends out water notice detailing administrative violation

By John Severance

 

The Los Alamos Department of Utilities sent out a notice to all its customers this week, saying it failed to report its monthly disinfectant residuals to the New Mexico Environment Department/Drinking Water Bureau in a timely fashion.

The deadline for the report was April 10 and the compliance data was not received until April 23.

The notice assured its customers that the quality of water was not compromised and it was “a failure to meet an administrative requirement.”

DPU head John Arrowsmith said the delay was because of “human error.

“We had the data and we send it to them monthly but they recently imposed a quarterly report for the first time and it didn’t get done.”

Two-car accident closes East Road for an hour; now open

"There's a first time for everything," RPM Automotive owner Larry Rich said.

That's because Wednesday afternoon was the first time he towed a vehicle he was actually the driver of.

At 1:45 p.m. Rich was heading westbound on East Road in a black Toyota 4Runner when a white Chevrolet van pulled out from the Central Avenue intersection clipping his rear bumper. The impact caused the rear axle to break and the truck to spin and flip onto the driver's side, according to Los Alamos Police Officer David Boe.

Rich - who was unharmed and climbed out from the vehicle through the passenger side door - said the car wasn't even his, but rather one he was repairing.
