  • Police investigate break-in at Hill Diner

    To Hill Diner owner Denise Lane, it’s a pattern that’s all too frustratingly familiar.

    When employees reported for duty at the diner Sunday, they found the cash register had been busted open.  

    Total take? Less than $10 according to Lane. The cash register was worth more, she said.

    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.
