  • Logic behind smear campaigns

    We’ve all wanted to tell candidates what we think of their mud fights, and I got a small opportunity during primary season. When a candidate came to the door, I said, “I’ve only gotten one mailer from you, and it was negative. Why did you go negative?”
    The candidate, who had a long record of civic involvement and impressive endorsements, said he thought it was important to point out certain facts about his opponents. It’s true that we need to see all sides of the candidates, but their competitors are hardly credible sources. He talked a while and was quite likable, but I still didn’t vote for him.

  • Diving into the recycling stream

    As the Environmental Services Specialist I spend a fair deal of my time working on recycling program planning and education and outreach.  What I do not get the opportunity to do very often is get my hands dirty and see the recycling stream up close and personal.  That opportunity presented itself recently when we were down two collection vehicles and needed additional staffing to get the recyclables collected.  So I threw on my steel-toe boots, gloves and safety vest and headed out to the Western Area.  

  • Durant comes up big late as Thunder win

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Kevin Durant delivered the fourth quarter LeBron James never could last year.
    So forget those NBA Finals jitters at the start. Durant and the young Thunder showed they have already figured out how to finish.
    Durant scored 17 of his 36 points in another nightmarish final period for James and his team, leading a Thunder storm that overwhelmed the Heat and gave Oklahoma City a 105-94 victory over Miami in Game 1.
    Teaming with Russell Westbrook to outscore the Heat in the second half by themselves, Durant struck first in his head-to-head matchup with James, who had seven points in the final quarter and was helpless to stop the league’s three-time scoring champion.

  • Tour de LA returns for 40th running

    Sunday, the oldest bike race in the southwest will get a little older.
    The Tour de Los Alamos is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and it could be celebrating with a big turnout.
    Tour organizers are anticipating somewhere close to 200 riders for Sunday’s race, which includes eight separate competition categories. The race, which started in 1973, is well known throughout the region but owes much of its success to the Los Alamos biking community.
    “It’s very traditional and we’re very lucky to be able to use the traditional route,” race official Dave Zerkle said. “The backbone of this race has always been the locals. They make this thing click.”
