  • Marines headed to Libya to reinforce security

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say some 50 Marines are being sent to Libya to reinforce security at U.S. diplomatic facilities in the aftermath of an attack in the eastern city of Benghazi that killed the U.S. ambassador and three American members of his staff.

    The Marines are members of an elite group known as a Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team, whose role is to respond on short notice to terrorism threats and to reinforce security at U.S. embassies. They operate worldwide.

    The officials who disclosed the plan to send the Marines spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

  • LAHS volleyball team tops defending state champion Pojoaque

    The Los Alamos High School volleyball team dropped the first game against defending Class AAA state champion Pojoaque but came roaring back to win a four-set thriller Tuesday night at Griffith Gymnasium.

    The scores were 14-25, 25-19, 25-12 and 27-25.

    The win was especially satisfying for the Hilltoppers because they had only won once in the previous 10 meetings against the Elkettes, who dropped their second straight match after having a 37-match win streak snapped by St. Pius X last week.

    The Lady Toppers were coming off a rough tournament at Moriarty where they were without their starting setter Savanah Romero, who sustained a minor back injury.

    Romero was back in the lineup, but Los Alamos got off to a slow start as Pojoaque clicked on all cylinders, jumping out to a 17-3 lead in the first set.

    “I think we were all a little nervous,” Los Alamos coach Garry Maskaly said. “But it really came down to serving.”

    And the Hilltoppers finally got into a rhythm in the latter part of the first set. And the momentum shifted in the second game as they found their stride. The Toppers lost the first set 25-14, but in the second game, they started to take some bigger swings on offense. And with their serving prowess, they were able to keep Pojoaque from running its offense.

  • East Road lane closure set for Thursday

    The eastbound traffic lane on East Road near Los Alamos County Fire Station 6 will be closed at 8 a.m. Thursday.  Construction crews replacing a section of natural gas line along the south side of East Road, will excavate into the closed lane to tie the new line into the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities gas distribution system. 

    A flagging operation will permit traffic to travel east and west intermittently in the westbound single lane.  Department officials state that every attempt will be made to conclude repairs the same day by 3:30  p.m., prior to the evening rush hour. 

     Motorists should expect traffic delays Thursday morning.  Drivers are asked to exercise caution when approaching the work zone and be prepared to stop.
