  • DOE auditor suggests lab closures

    Department of Energy Inspector General Gregory Friedman raised some eyebrows and serious questions in an audit released this week.

    Friedman suggested in the current budget climate, where more funding cuts are likely a certainty that DOE should take a look at what the Department of Defense did. The DOD closed some of its bases in recent years.

    Friedman wrote, “Using the Department of Defense’s Base Closure and Realignment Commission (BRAC) experience as a guide, the Department should establish an independent panel to comprehensively examine alternatives for evaluating, consolidating, and/or realigning the Department’s R&D (research and development) laboratory complex.”

  • Building Kindness

  • Public weighs in on nature center

    A decade has passed since a group of local nature enthusiasts gathered to create the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC). PEEC has so exceeded its mission to provide a nature center with outdoor education programs for the community – it is literally bursting at the seams in its 3540 Orange St., headquarters building that is leased from Los Alamos Public Schools.

    “Visitation to PEEC has steadily increased to include more than 1,600 children, 1,800 adults and approximately 500 school children on field trips annually,” said President and founding member Becky Shankland.

  • Paying a political price

    From the campaign trails to state legislatures, wherever you cast your gaze in this benighted nation, you’ll likely find a bit of illegal-immigrant bashing at work.
    During their campaigns last year, two New Mexico politicos, each in her own way, played the undocumented-worker card so effectively as to help them become the highest ranking women holding public office in New Mexico today.
    Since then, the political payoffs Gov. Susana Martinez and Secretary of State Diana Duran sought from their tough-on-illegal-immigrants postures have proved modest at best.
    Twice in the past 10 months at two sessions of the legislature, Martinez failed in her efforts to repeal a law allowing illegals to apply for driver’s licenses.

  • Sundevils topped by Knights in The Pit

    The event was hosted by the New Mexico Activities Association.
