  • Don't hold your breath for a bounce in home prices

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Thought the housing crisis was over? Not quite.

    Despite four years of falling prices and recent signs that they were finally bottoming out, homes are expected to lose still more value in many metro areas over the next year.

    Parts of the country already pummeled by the housing crisis, like Las Vegas, Phoenix and Miami, will be hit hardest. But even some places that have rebounded or held up relatively well — including New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. — will suffer, too.

  • Well-known cyclist crashes

    Officials are puzzling over a bizarre bicycle accident that sent a top bicyclist to the hospital with serious injuries Thursday afternoon.

    Herb Schon, 79, of Eldorado is an avid cyclist who’s logged thousands of miles including a trip from San Francisco to New Hampshire in 2007.

    Schon was traveling east on West Jemez Road near the bottom of Pajarito Ski Hill toward the west guard gate at Los Alamos National Laboratory. He rode his bicycle into a guard arm and hit a gate, said Patrick Sleik, Los Alamos deputy fire chief.

  • Lights! Camera! Action! Los Alamos!

    The movie “Let Me In,” another tale of Vampire teens (think “Twilight” only darker) filmed in and around Los Alamos, is nearing release.

  • Putting around town

    Los Alamos’s Miniature Golf Course is open for play.

    Located at the recently upgraded East Park, the course is open for anyone at no charge who has their own putter and ball.

    Scorecards are available at the park in a wooden box near the start of the course, as well as at the Aquatic Center front desk.

    Those who don’t have a putter or ball can rent them at the Aquatic Center for $2.

    The idea for building a mini golf course came about from Parks Manager Dick McIntyre when the East Park Master Plan was being updated several years ago.

  • Take a journey to self discovery

    An adventure awaits Los Alamos youth as Missoula Children’s Theater presents “King Arthur’s Quest,” but this isn’t just a journey into the fantasy world of Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table. It’s an opportunity for young people to develop self-esteem and confidence onstage.

    The adventure begins with auditions at 9 a.m. Monday at the Duane Smith Auditorium. The production is open to anyone in 1st through 12th grade. There is no fee to audition.

  • Take a trip to the past: Celebrate history in Jemez Springs

    Perhaps one of the biggest privileges of living in Los Alamos is that there is a multitude of attractions that are only steps away from your front door.

    My parents and I recently took advantage of Los Alamos’ geographic location and headed to Jemez Springs.

    Jemez Springs may only be a stone’s throw away from Los Alamos, but it felt hidden and secluded once we arrived in its town limits. The towering mountains that surround Jemez, along with a dense curtain of pine trees, made us feel as though we were miles away from surrounding communities.

  • Assets in Action: Take some time off this summer

    This week, let’s talk about boundaries and expectations in the schools, in local business and in the life of the student.

    As the topic relates to schools, I want to caution school staff not to spend the next 2-3 weeks in the classroom prior to the official start of school. If you aren’t required to be back in the building yet, try to stay away as much as possible.
