  • LAHS inducts top athletic figures into Hall of Fame

    The inaugural class of the Los Alamos High School Athletic Hall of Fame was honored last weekend during the homecoming festivities.
    Los Alamos inducted 13 former athletes, coaches, administrators and sports-related personalities into the Hall of Fame. Nominations for the honor opened earlier this year and winners were announced in early August.
    The inductees were recognized prior to the homecoming football game Friday — Los Alamos was defeated 24-6 by the Kirtland Central Broncos in the 2014 contest — and were recognized at the formal induction ceremony Sunday at Fuller Lodge.
    Among those honored were the following:

    • Walt Arnold — Arnold was a standout tight end for Los Alamos during his high school career and was an All-State honoree in 1976. After his career playing for the University of New Mexico, Arnold played in the NFL for seven years, mostly with Los Angeles and Kansas City.

    • Lynn Bjorklund — A top runner during her high school career, Bjorklund set a longstanding high school record in the 3,000 meters, a record that stood until last year. She qualified for Team USA in 1974 and 1976 and ran in several international competitions during her career. She also set a record for the Pikes Peak Marathon that stood for several years.

  • WIPP: Second drum didn't breach


     Recent news reports have incorrectly suggested that there is a second breached drum in the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) underground facility. 

    According to a WIPP press release, there is no evidence to suggest a release from a second drum. The site conducted initial surveys that showed no evidence of a radiological release from Panel 6, and we have seen no evidence since then that suggests anything different. 

    “Worker safety is the Department’s highest priority and workers entering radiologically controlled areas of the WIPP underground facility are trained and equipped with state of the art protective equipment. Safety measures are being taken to protect all workers during every entry into the underground facility,” the press release stated.

  • Census: UNM-LA has increased enrollment


    Bucking a statewide decline, the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos (UNM-LA) recorded a significant increase in its unofficial census numbers after the first 21 days of the fall semester. Fall 2014 totaled 870 students, an increase of 14 percent over the same period in 2013.

    UNM-LA students are taking a total of 5,515 credit hours, which is a 4.2 percent increase from fall 2013 and a 21 percentincrease from fall 2012.

    “With fall enrollment numbers down at virtually every other campus in New Mexico,” said UNM-LA CEO, Dr. Wynn Goering, “we see clearly how successful UNM-LA has been in providing a product that’s attractive to students.”
