    LA All-Stars finish in third place

    The Los Alamos Little League 9/10 All-Stars bowed out of the state baseball tournament with a 10-7 loss Thursday night.
    The loss to Carlsbad ended a solid run by Los Alamos in the tournament, which was played in Portales. Los Alamos picked up two straight wins to advance to the semifinals, but was topped by Albuquerque Eastdale in the semifinal round and Carlsbad in Thursday’s elimination game.
    Los Alamos finished the tournament in third place.
    “The Eastdale team is really good,” Los Alamos manager Lance Eaton said. “Against Carlsbad, we just made too many mistakes. We actually out-hit them, but just had some mistakes. That’s Little League baseball.”

  • Workshop may work wonders

    Michael Tso was 10 months into his job running a high-tech envelope-making machine at Desert Paper and Envelope in Albuquerque when his employer sent him to the New Mexico Manufacturing Extension Partnership’s lean-manufacturing workshop this summer. There with other representatives of New Mexico companies he learned fundamentals of the lean manufacturing philosophy, which aims to improve business operations – and enhance competitiveness – from the shop floor to the front office.

  • New Mexicans should be proud of themselves

    SANTA FE — It is becoming obvious that the National Republican Senatorial Committee has decided that Heather Wilson can win New Mexico only by being seen as a great compromiser.
    Normally, Republicans are into binding their candidates with pledges never to stray from the party line. But in Wilson's case, she is being characterized as a problem solver, who will reach across the political aisle to craft solutions.
    Wilson’s race for the U.S. Senate is being rated by most analysts as “lean Democrat.”

  • Plutonium disposition project possible

    The National Nuclear Security Administration has released the Draft Surplus Plutonium Disposition Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for public review and comment.

    And not surprisingly, Los Alamos could be in the mix.

    The Draft Supplemental EIS analyzes the potential environmental impacts of alternatives for the disposition of 7.1 metric tons (MT) of additional weapons-usable plutonium from pits that were declared surplus to national defense needs in 2007 but were not included in DOE’s prior decisions as well as 6 MT of surplus weapons-usable non-pit plutonium.

  • Best defense is a good offense

    On West Jemez Road, in a small room at the Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Emergency Operations Center, sits one the greatest defensive weapons the lab uses against fighting wildfires.

    Of course, one wouldn’t know it by looking at it.

    At first glance, it just looks like a sand box propped up on four wooden legs. However, turn off the lights and turn on an overhead projector, and that’s where the similarity to the childhood memories ends.

  • Walk to end Alzheimer’s on tap

    Mary Yamada and Pauline Schneider know all too well how Alzheimer’s disease is affecting not only the aging population, but younger people, as well.

    Schneider, executive director at the Betty Ehart Senior Center, and Yamada, community outreach coordinator at Sombrillo Nursing and Rehabilitation Facility, have both seen community members succumb to the disease.

    The facts are chilling and there is no cure for Alzheimer’s. Despite the odds, those affected by the disease, along with their caregivers, hold out hope that one day, a cure will be found.
