  • Vehicles collide at Trinity, Diamond; at least one driver injured -- photos

    Two vehicles collided at the corner of Diamond Drive and Trinity Drive, snarling traffic around 4:20 p.m. Thursday.

    A Chevy Impala, with California tags, apparently was heading northbound on Diamond when it collided with a subcompact SUV heading eastbound on Trinity. Police said the Honda SUV was southbound on Diamond and attempted to make a left onto Trinity when it was involved in the collision with the Impala.

    The Los Alamos Fire Department was quickly on the scene and put the woman driving the Impala on a stretcher and put her in an ambulance for the very short commute to the Los Alamos Medical Center. There was no immediate word on her condition.

  • Bun Ryan honored with John F. Kennedy Award

    Bernard (Bun) Ryan, was awarded the John F. Kennedy award recently by the Los Alamos Democratic Party.
    Ryan has lived the ideals that JFK professed.
    John Kennedy believed that, “If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.” He believed that the small numbers of Americans who have resources have representatives in Washington to protect their interests, but that it was the responsibility of the President of the United States to protect the others. JFK espoused a basic tenet of the Democratic Party: it is only through working together, private and public, neighbor and stranger that we will be truly prosperous. For these reasons we honored him.  May 29 would have been his 95th birthday.
