  • No good vibes at Municipal site

    Residents living near the construction site of the new municipal building no doubt know the pad has been completed for the new county complex. The soil compaction that has raised concerns for area homeowners is nearly complete.

    Some further compaction is needed to complete work on Iris Street and the parking area, but Capital Projects Manager Dan Erickson hopes that leg of the project is less intense. The same compactor will be used for a portion of that work, but Erickson said that the contractor, Jaynes Corporation, may utilize smaller equipment as well.

  • AP Exclusive: Iran poised for big nuke jump

    VIENNA (AP) — Iran is poised to greatly expand uranium enrichment at a fortified underground bunker to a point that would boost how quickly it could make nuclear warheads, diplomats tell The Associated Press.

    They said Tehran has put finishing touches for the installation of thousands of new-generation centrifuges at the cavernous facility — machines that can produce enriched uranium much more quickly and efficiently than its present machines.

    While saying that the electrical circuitry, piping and supporting equipment for the new centrifuges was now in place, the diplomats emphasized that Tehran had not started installing the new machines at its Fordo facility and could not say whether it was planning to.

  • Can't touch this: ABQ strip clubs in council's crosshairs

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Strip club owners in Albuquerque would have to be licensed and their performers could no longer touch their customers under a proposal being drafted by several city council members.

    Councilors Dan Lewis, Debbie O'Malley, and Isaac Benton plan to present the bill next week.

    If it passes it would also ban VIP rooms at the strip clubs and they would be required to post signs with a phone number for a human trafficking hotline.

    Lewis tells KOB-TV in Albuquerque that the bill could help curb prostitution and human trafficking. He says outlawing strip clubs in the city isn't possible but tougher regulations would protect children.

  • Pastor Chuck: Death as punishment for lying seems harsh

    “A story in the New Testament tells about two people who died when they ‘lied to God.’ Wasn’t that a little harsh?” — Randy 

     

    The account of Ananias and Sapphira, set in the context of the story of the fledgling church in Jerusalem in the very early days of the Christian movement, is jolting and unsettling.
