  • Romak leads Aces past 'Topes

    Former Isotope Jamie Romak paced the Reno Aces (46-52) to an 8-4 victory against the Albuquerque Isotopes (44-54) Wednesday night at Aces Ballpark in Reno, Nevada.

    Romak signed as a free agent with the Arizona Diamondbacks in November 2014. Since then, he has demolished the Isotopes, with whom he played the 2014 campaign. In 15 games this season with Reno, Romak is 18-for-55 with 14 runs scored, two doubles, a triple, five home runs, 17 RBI and 12 walks against Albuquerque. His fifth-inning three-run homer gave the Aces a 5-4 lead that they would not relinquish.

    Trevor Story continued his recent hot streak and is still an extra-base machine for the Isotopes. He finished Wednesday night’s game 2-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI. The infielder now has eight hits in his last 17 at-bats with four runs scored, three doubles, three home runs and six RBI over four games. Since joining Albuquerque, 13 of Story’s 19 hits are for extra-bases.

    The Isotopes and Aces will play the finale of this four-game series Thursday night at 8:05 p.m. MT. Left-handed pitcher Aaron Laffey (2-3, 4.61 ERA) is scheduled to take the hill for Albuquerque, while Reno will go with right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (2-3, 3.35 ERA) on the mound.

  • PBS explores atomic bomb on several TV specials

    PBS’ new special “The Bomb” tells the story of the most powerful and destructive device ever invented.
    Premiering on KNME-TV/New Mexico PBS, channel 5 from 7-9 p.m. July 28, in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the detonation of the atomic bomb.
    The show highlights how humans harnessed this incredible power and what challenges we have faced living with it for 70 years. “The Bomb” features newly restored footage of nuclear weaponry, some of which has been declassified only recently by the Department of Defense.
    “The Bomb” takes viewers behind the scenes of the first atomic bomb, revealing how it was developed and how it changed the planet, ushering in a new era and reshaping our lives even today.
    Rare footage from bomb tests through the 1950s and ’60s demonstrates the power and strangely compelling beauty of nuclear explosions. The film focuses on the choices society has made — and continues to make — to live with an invention that could destroy the planet.
    Included are interviews with Richard Rhodes, foremost atomic bomb historian, former Secretaries of Defense and State William Perry and George Shultz, scientists, weapons designers, pilots, witnesses and ordinary men and women who have lived and worked with the atomic bomb.

  • Geologist talks fossils at Mesa Prieta Petroglyphs

    The Mesa Prieta Petroglyph Project announces Pláticas Presentations – Geology and Fossils on Mesa Prieta. The lecture will be by Scott Aby.
    The July talk is an ongoing series that will be 6:30 p.m. July 28 at Historic Los Luceros in Alcalde. Aby is a longtime geologist and fossil hunter.
    Like many mesas in New Mexico, Black Mesa is topped by a thin layer of lava, which is resistant to erosion. That is why these mesas stand high in the landscape — because everything else has eroded away around them. The lava on Black Mesa is between 3 and 4 million years old, and is a type of lava that flows easily, usually down valleys. In Mesa Prieta’s case, we know that the bottom of the valley was at the top of the mesa when that lava was erupted. This type of lava (called Basalt) gets a coating on it called “desert varnish” after a few million years. Petroglyphs are made by chipping the varnish off the rocks to reveal the lighter colored “fresh” rock underneath.
