  • Officials renew focus on sidewalks

  • Firefighters race to corral Gila blaze

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A wall of smoke advances across a vast swath of rugged country in southwestern New Mexico where the nation's wilderness movement was born nearly a century ago.

    From the air, the smoke stretches as far as the eye can see. On the ground, firefighters talk about the steep canyons that keep them from directly attacking what has become the largest wildfire in New Mexico's recorded history and the largest currently burning in the country.

    Sure, things might look bad. But to land managers and scientists, the record-setting blaze represents a true test of decades of work aimed at returning fire to its natural role on the landscape — a test that comes as many Western states grapple with overgrown forests, worsening drought and a growing prospect for more megafires.

  • Local researcher uses modern science to seek truth of Shroud

    Los Alamos resident Robert Villareal is not only on a mission of faith - but also science.

    In April, he traveled to Valencia, Spain where he gave a presentation and talk as part of  the International Congress on the Holy Shroud. The shroud is said to have been the burial cloth of  Jesus Christ.

    According to a pamphlet from the event, “the Spanish Centre of Sindonology was legalized in the national register center for associations in April 1987.” The CES officially opened on Dec. 18, 1987 and celebrated its 25th anniversary this year.

  • Community forum set for Wednesday

    Imagine a place in our downtown designed to address housing and other needs of our early career "idea people" ... scientists, technologists, artists and innovators of all type ... and entrepreneurs.  What would it look like?  Where might be a good location?  What related amenities would benefit both the residents and the larger community?  The Los Alamos Creative District Steering Committee facilitated by Los Alamos MainStreet has been putting thought and effort into these and other questions.  An early outcome from this work was a visit to Los Alamos in March by representatives of PLACE, a non-profit niche developer based in Minneapolis.
