  • QUILT SHOW

    Los Alamos Piecemakers Guild unveiled bed quilts, wall hangings and lap quilts at the quilt show, which opened Friday and continued through Saturday at the First Baptist Church.

  • The art of preservation

    In October, Mesa Public Library will present “Museum Conservation: The Delicate Art Behind the Scenes,” an exhibit of photographs by New Mexico Highlands University Media Arts student Rachel Montoya.

    The exhibit focuses on the art and science of repairing and preserving museum collection objects performed by the Museum of New Mexico Conservation Department.

  • Boys batter Bernalillo

    The Hilltopper boys soccer team showed up in the second half with a vengeance.

    A solitary goal at 30 minutes off a corner kick by Davis Anson, assisted by Nicholas Castano, was all Los Alamos had to show for their early efforts.

    When it was all over Tuesday Los Alamos had a 5-0 district victory on the road over Bernalillo.

  • N.M. limiting health insurance

    Gov. Bill Richardson’s administration will limit enrollment in a rapidly growing program that offers taxpayer-subsidized health insurance for low-income adults.

    The Human Services Department estimates it could save $16 million a year in state money to help with a looming budget shortfall if the cost-cutting measure keeps 10,000 people from joining the program.

    Enrollment has increased by 1,000 to almost 3,000 people monthly during the past year as the economy slumped.

  • Atomic bomb site to open

    The public is invited Saturday to visit the New Mexico desert site that changed world history.

    The Trinity Site at White Sands Missile Range, where the world’s first atomic bomb was detonated on July 16, 1945, will be open to the public from 8 a.m.-2 p.m.

    Visitors can take a quarter-mile walk to ground zero. There, they will see a small obelisk that marks the exact spot where the bomb was exploded at 5:29:45 a.m. Mountain War Time on July 16, 1945.

    Historical photos will be mounted on the fence surrounding the area.

  • Hilltoppers blank Sue Cleveland

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team grabbed its second suite in as many days Thursday.

    Los Alamos topped Sue Cleveland High School, a brand new school located in Rio Rancho, by a 3-0 count at Griffith Gymanasium.

    The win was not only the sixth straight for LA (10-3) but the second 3-0 win in a row.

    Los Alamos topped Taos 3-0 Wednesday night in its district 2AAAA opener and has dropped just one of its last 10 games.

    Thursday’s match was the final nondistrict contest of the Hilltopper’s regular season.

  • You, too, should care about journalism

    A central aspect of the art of politics in Washington is getting information to the American people. Determining what the White House, Congress and the people will focus on — and, just as important, what the content of debate will be — preoccupies politicians at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue and legions of lobbyists, pundits, strategists and consultants.

  • Our volcanic society

    In the movies, volcanic eruptions are dazzling in their ability to take people by surprise. Filming an eruption like Pompeii would be rather boring. In a matter of minutes, everyone is choked to death by a massive onslaught of volcanic dust. End of story.

    It’s much more exciting to see lava flows gushing towards towns as people run for their lives. For about an hour, the lava oozes toward its victims, outracing and engulfing them in horrible (ooh, so spectacular on that big screen) death scenes.
