  • Health care ruling leaves NM to decide on Medicaid

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — The governor and Legislature face a critical policy choice in the wake of Thursday's U.S. Supreme Court ruling on a federal health care overhaul and must decide whether to expand the state's biggest health care program to cover an estimated 170,000 uninsured New Mexicans.

  • Cyclist injured in collision with vehicle on N.M. 4

    A Los Alamos man was injured Wednesday night at mile marker 49 on N.M. 4 when he lost control of the bicycle he was driving and ran into a vehicle driven by a Jemez Springs man heading west.

    LAPD officer Jaime Gonzales said in his report that Fortunato Ferrara of Los Alamos was traveling east on N.M. 4 on his bicycle and coming down the hill and slowing down before the road turned. The report said that Ferrara said he lost control of his front wheel making him move into the opposite lane striking Bo Folks’ Nissan head on.

    The report said that Folks, a Jemez Springs resident who works at LANL, came around the turn when he saw the bicyclist come into his lane and hit him.

    Folks did not complain of injuries and drove his vehicle home.

  • DPU sends out water notice detailing administrative violation

     

    The Los Alamos Department of Utilities sent out a notice to all its customers this week, saying it failed to report its monthly disinfectant residuals to the New Mexico Environment Department/Drinking Water Bureau in a timely fashion.

    The deadline for the report was April 10 and the compliance data was not received until April 23.

    The notice assured its customers that the quality of water was not compromised and it was “a failure to meet an administrative requirement.”

    DPU head John Arrowsmith said the delay was because of “human error.

    “We had the data and we send it to them monthly but they recently imposed a quarterly report for the first time and it didn’t get done.”
