  • Official: Emails from paramour led to FBI probe--Video Extra

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The scandal that brought down CIA Director David Petraeus started with harassing emails sent by his biographer and paramour, Paula Broadwell, to another woman, and eventually led the FBI to discover the affair, U.S. officials told The Associated Press on Saturday.

    Petraeus quit Friday after acknowledging an extramarital relationship.

    The official said the FBI investigation began several months ago with a complaint against Broadwell, a 40-year-old graduate of the U.S. Military Academy and an Army Reserve officer. That probe led agents to her email account, which uncovered the relationship with the 60-year-old retired four-star general, who earned acclaim for his leadership of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The identity of the other woman and her connection with Broadwell were not immediately known.

  • Hotel's future uncertain

    The Los Alamos National Bank has put the wheels in motion to foreclose on the company that owns and manages the Hilltop House Hotel.

    The bank initiated the process against Hilltop House, LLC Oct. 19, but the hotel’s managing partner and at least one of its investors remain hopeful a deal can be struck with the bank to restructure the debt.

    The landmark 79-room hotel straddles some of the most high profile commercial property in Los Alamos at the convergence of Trinity and Central Avenue. But the overall economy and increased competition — both on and off the Hill — has left the 40-year-old lodge struggling for survival. 

    The foreclosure documents were filed in First Judicial District court in Los Alamos County by LANB attorney James R. Jurgens.
