  • 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.

  • Councilors debate duties of clerk, sheriff

    The most surprising thing about Tuesday night’s county council meeting was the lack of public comment on proposed charter amendments, including the hotly contested issue of the sheriff’s role. The only public comment came from Charter Review Committee (CRC) members clarifying specific issues.

    However, council’s debates on some CRC recommendations mirrored previous arguments among committee members and the public.

    That was most apparent in the divide over the sheriff’s office. Councilor Francis Berting made a motion that was seconded by councilor Mike Wismer, in a move that would transfer the sheriff’s duties to the Los Alamos Police Department and eliminate the position.

  • LAPD launches probe into local woman's death

    Los Alamos Police investigators want to know more about circumstances surrounding the recent death of a Los Alamos woman.

    For the past three weeks, the department has been investigating the death of 28-year-old Los Alamos resident Jamie Lee Ireland, who died May 31.

    On May 20, the Consolidated Dispatch Center received a call that Ireland had sustained injuries after a fall down a flight of stairs at 802 9th Street Apartment #22 – though a review of dispatch logs from that day did not include any account of the initial incident.

    But police are looking into whether foul play was involved in the incident or not which is what’s being investigated, Captain Randy Foster said.

  • Bear slightly injures young girl

    Ponderosa Group Campground will be closed for up to 10 days, pending the capture of a black bear, who swatted at a tent occupied by two members of a scout pack visiting the area.

    At approximately 4 a.m. Wednesday, a black bear swatted at a tent occupied by a sleeping girl and her mother, according to Dan Williams, spokesperson for New Mexico Game and Fish. The tent was torn, and the bear’s claws grazed the 
back of the juvenile’s neck, causing a minor abrasive injury.

    “They heard the scratching on the tent and they ran out and scared the bear,” Williams said.
    When asked how did they know it was a black bear, Williams said it was “the only kind of bear we have in New Mexico.”
