  • Griffith Gym to be rededicated

    There is a story behind just about any dedication.

    Griffith Gymnasium at Los Alamos is no exception.

    The community is invited to the Ribbon Cutting/Rededication of Griffith Gymnasium at 6 p.m. Monday.

    Griffith Gym happens to be named after Lieutenant Thurston “Turk” Griffith, Jr., who was a 1958 graduate of Los Alamos High School.  

    And it turns out, Griffith’s memory is dedicated in another state and that ceremony took place in Fort Gordon, Ga., in January.

  • Leaked DOD memo rips DOE on size of labs

    The Project on Government Oversight (POGO) has its sights set on the Department of Energy and its national laboratories.

    Somehow, the people at POGO got their hands on a leaked Department of Defense memo, which reflects DOE’s refusal to downsize, despite the end of the Cold War. It presents the arguments of a number of experts who have said DOE’s laboratories should downsize, rather than expand their mission. It also compiles evidence of DOE’s ongoing efforts to circumvent the congressional appropriations process.

    POGO investigator Pete Stockton said he could not disclose how the organization got the memo.

    But he did say, “it’s quite damaging for DOE.”

  • Baseball, softball thump the Jaguars

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball and softball teams, as expected, were big winners over the Capital Jaguars Saturday.
    Los Alamos swept all four games from the Jaguars in Saturday’s doubleheaders. The softball team won 16-9, 16-0 and the baseball team crushed the Jaguars 27-0, 20-0.
    For the Hilltopper baseball team, the win in game one officially wrapped up the District 2-4A title, their fourth straight district crown. Following the team’s extra-innings win Wednesday at Española Valley, it needed just one win in any of the three remaining game with Capital (0-18), which has scored a grand total of 37 runs in 2012.
    The two totals for the Hilltopper baseball team were the most runs it has scored in any contests this season.

  • LA girls are third at Harper track meet

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team placed third at the two-day Richard A. Harper Memorial Invitational.
    The Harper meet is considered a good indicator of how teams may fare at the state meet, now less than three weeks away.
    If this weekend’s meet was any indication, the Hilltoppers are in good position to vie for their fourth straight team title. However, the Los Lunas Tigers finished solidly in the No. 4 spot in team competition, just four points behind the Hilltoppers.
    In all, 19 teams took part in the Harper Invitational, including eight Class 4A teams.

  • Fashion Maven: Show off your shades

    Huge, out-of-this world, colorful sunglasses are a hit this spring and while they may look great in magazines, I’ll bet many of you are having qualms about actually pulling off this look.
    Fashion is about making a statement and making a statement can mean plucking up a lot of courage, but also making sure the trend looks good on you.
    Since this trend is focusing on how large sunglasses are, we’ve got to make sure that the color of the shades compliments your skin tone.
    Hold the glasses up to your face to see if their color makes you look very pale or pasty. Vibrant, neon colors tend to have this effect more than neutral colors, so if you want more toned-down shades, go for neutral colors. That means black, white, beige or navy.
