  • Honoring a true hero

    On January 17, 1965, 1st Lt. Thurston “Turk” Griffith died in an ambush in Vietnam.  He was the first native New Mexican to be killed in combat. He was also a graduate of Los Alamos High School.  Friends that knew him stated he had a “wry, self-deprecating sense of humor.”  Sounds like a person that I would have called friend.  

  • Martinez riding high

    SANTA FE — Despite a few slips, Gov. Susana Martinez is riding high in New Mexico and national popularity polls.  Both Public Opinion Strategies and Rasmussen recent polling show Martinez with at least 60 percent popularity in recent months.
    The latest big news for our governor is her inclusion in a top-ten list compiled by Washington Post columnist Aaron Blake. His choices are evenly split between parties. Four are from the Mountain West — New Mexico, Colorado, Montana and Nevada.
    Blake says his rankings take into account all factors in determining how successful governors have been — from approval rating to difficulty of what they have attempted to do legislatively to the political bent of their states.

  • Students get a wake-up call

    At 11:05 a.m. Wednesday, a simulated traffic collision was made viewable on Los Alamos High School grounds.
    Rescue workers treated “injured” student participants. These students experienced first hand, the feelings of being involved in an alcohol-related, texting-while-driving collision. A coroner handled “fatalities” on the scene, while Los Alamos County firefighters, paramedics and police officers helped student actors, who were made up to look like crash victims, complete with fake blood and wounds. LAPD officers investigated and arrested the student “drunk driver.”
