    Nonprofit organizations will receive more than $180,000 from Los Alamos National Security, LLC during a recognition event beginning at 9:30 a.m. Thursday at Fuller Lodge in downtown Los Alamos.

    LANS contributions are determined by the number of volunteer hours logged by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) employees and retirees through an organization called VolunteerMatch.

    “The genuine care and commitment laboratory employees and retirees have for their communities are clearly demonstrated by the number of hours volunteered to these nonprofit organizations,” said Kurt Steinhaus, director of the Community Programs Office, which manages the Laboratory’s volunteer program.

  • High court rejects part of Arizona immigration law--Video Extra

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court threw out key provisions of Arizona's crackdown on illegal immigrants Monday but said a much-debated portion could go forward on checking the status of suspects who might appear to be in the U.S. illegally.

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's two U.S. senators are pushing legislation that would make it easier for residents affected by wildfires on federal lands to take advantage of flood insurance administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

    Sen. Jeff Bingaman introduced the measure last week. Sen. Tom Udall is a co-sponsor.

    Under current law, there's a 30-day waiting period after flood insurance is purchased before coverage under a new contract can take effect.
