  • Cost of the game to remain the same

    Golf enthusiasts won’t be asked to pony up any additional fees this season even though the county is embarking on an ambitious $5.3 million makeover of the Los Alamos Golf Course clubhouse.

    The Los Alamos County Council approved the 2011-2012 fees for the public course during its regular meeting Tuesday night.

    The council’s decision to hold the line on fees comes on the heels of a recent scathing review of the fee structure in the New Mexico Piglet Book, which takes aim at pointing out government waste of taxpayer dollars.

    Ja Rule admits to tax evasion

    NEWARK, N.J. — Rapper and actor Ja Rule admitted Tuesday that he failed to pay taxes on more than $3 million in income, and he faces up to three years in prison.
    The platinum-selling rapper, whose given name is Jeffrey Atkins, earned the money between 2004 and 2006 while he lived in Saddle River, an upscale community in northern New Jersey.
    If the plea conditions are met, the government will dismiss two counts against him for unpaid taxes on about $1 million he earned in 2007 and 2008.
    Atkins is scheduled to be sentenced June 13 on the three tax evasion charges. He faces up to one year in prison and $100,000 in fines on each count.
