  • Stover wants chance to stay connected

    Sharon Stover may have surprised a few people when she decided to run for Los Alamos County clerk instead of a second term on the council, but it was anything but an impromptu decision for her.

    “I made up my mind a long time ago, and I was out trying to recruit people to run, because I knew I wasn’t going to and wanted to get good folks running,” Stover said. “I’ve enjoyed it and I think I’m going to miss parts of it. I just thought it was time for someone else.”

    Stover wants to stay connected with county government.

  • Medical Officer asked to resign

    SANTA FE — The chief medical officer for the state Department of Health said she was asked to resign after giving a television interview in which she advocated condom use to slow the growth of sexually transmitted diseases among teens.

    Chief Medical Officer Erin Bouquin, who also practices at the Los Alamos Medical Center, said she got an email an hour after the interview aired last Thursday on KOAT-TV asking her to meet with department Secretary Catherine Torres.

    In that meeting she said she was told she was being asked to leave because she hadn’t met the expectations of the governor. But she suspects it was because of the interview.
