  • LA’s Kirk gives nod to UNM

    Los Alamos High School’s celebrated big man, Alex Kirk, has decided to play his collegiate basketball close to home.

    Kirk, the 6-foot-11 star center for the Hilltoppers’ boys basketball team has verbally committed to the University of New Mexico, according to news reports today.

    Greg Remington of the UNM athletic division said this morning, “We can’t comment about that. The early signing period is a month away, Nov. 11-18. Only after he signs and our rules people have determined that it is valid, can we confirm that.”

  • Cross country: LA boys, girls win Saturday at SFIS

    The Los Alamos boys and girls cross country clubs both scored their first team wins of the season at Saturday’s Santa Fe Indian School Invitational.

  • Beware of raccoons

    Despite a recent Monitor article, I have not seen the reported abundance of rattlesnakes on Barranca Mesa, not even one. Maybe the raccoons are feeding on them and anything else they can find. They are nightly and, occasionally, daily visitors in my neighborhood and have attacked pets to protect their young.

    Wildlife managers claim trapping them is useless because they will return to their territory many miles away from release.  Their abundant replacements will also fill in for them. One local raccoon mom has three offspring doing the dining tour this fall.

  • Attorney reviews Vives-Hull suit and countersuit

    Although I have tried many cases to juries, I have never encountered more intelligent, educated or thoughtful jurors than those who decided Thomas Edward Vives vs. Linda Hull. The citizens of Los Alamos County have every reason to be proud of them.

     This is a test.

  • This, that and the other

    SANTA FE — It’s time to pick up some more clippings from the newsroom floor. It always makes me feel good to get the gems into print that wouldn’t quite fit in previous columns. Kinda like getting in the last word.

      With the entry of Albuquerque GOP activist Bea Sheridan into the lieutenant governor primary, both parties have at least one woman in the governor and lieutenant governor races. Sheridan is a nurse who runs the Pain Clinic at Lovelace Rehabilitation Hospital.

  • Municipal Building site vote too close to call

  • Audit reflects marked improvement

    Praise and applause rang out for Business Manager John Wolfe and his staff during a recent school board meeting because of a much-improved independent auditor’s report.

    “This is great, great news – just two (findings) – that’s a lot better then when I first came on the school board and there were 22 (findings),” said President Joan Ahlers during the meeting held in the Speech Theater at Los Alamos High School Sept. 24. “Thank you again to John Wolfe and our finance department.”

  • International Christian singer to perform Oct. 9

    The original intent to have a concert featuring Christian singer Steve Green was to celebrate the opening of the new Crossroads Bible Church building. This intent, however, received a slight revision.

    The building is not ready for its opening day, but that doesn’t sour the celebratory mood. The show must go on.

    Green will perform at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 9 at White Rock Baptist Church. Green is an award-winning performer.

    He has received four Grammy nominations and seven Dove Awards, which is Christian music’s highest award.
