  • Afternoon outage leaves much of North Mesa powerless

    Los Alamos Dept. of Public Utilities reports that North Mesa customers were subjected to a power outage Tuesday afternoon. Some callers to the Los Alamos Monitor reported that power went down for more than two hours.

    The annual Relay for Life event kicked off with a Cancer Survivor’s Lap. The participants walked the first lap to begin the event, which took volunteers and walkers late into the night.
    The lap was preceded by a dinner, flowers and a presentation by Dr. Eric Bernstein, an oncologist with New Mexico Cancer Care at the Los Alamos Medical Center.
    Doug Stavert, Ann Sherrard and Katie Stavert, along with a furry friend, scooped and swept a large build-up of water that had collected around the pond prior to the arrival of walkers that have been through — or are currently going through — the battle.
