  • BATHTUB ROW STANDOFF ENDS WITHOUT INCIDENT

    Los Alamos Police have successfully concluded negotiations with a local man who had barricaded himself inside a residence at 1350 Bathtub Row.

    Officers staked out the home and apprehended Richard Morse when he exited to dispose of his trash at a receptacle in his front yard at about noon today.

    Morse, 75, is a former Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist who worked on the W-76 thermonuclear warhead in the 1970s and 1980s. He has been a longtime critic of the weapon saying a design flaw involving a "too thin casing," made it unstable.

  • Snowmaking capabilities to bring stability to Pajarito

    TUCSON, Ariz. — For four years, Jared Loughner was an unremarkable college student, commuting to classes near his home where he studied yoga and algebra, business management and poetry.
    But last year, his classroom conduct began to change. In February, Loughner stunned a teacher by talking about blowing up babies, a bizarre outburst that marked the start of a rapid unraveling for the 22-year old, who is accused of slaying six people and wounding 13, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
    After his first flare-up, campus police decided not to intervene.
