  • Fire near Ruidoso damages 224 homes, cabins

    RUIDOSO, N.M. (AP) — A second day of surveying the damage from a wildfire in the mountains of southern New Mexico confirmed Tuesday what many anxious residents had feared: the list of homes left blackened and smoldering by the fast-moving flames was growing.

  • NNSA does aerial survey

    The National Nuclear Security Administration plans this week to complete a high-fidelity aerial survey of Los Alamos town site, a dual-step project initiated last fall.

    The survey began Monday and will run through Wednesday. Residents may notice the silver and blue Bell 412 helicopter flying overhead.  The county release indicated that the NNSA is conducting flights to do aerial radiation surveys over LANL property and the townsite.

    NNSA arranged for the Remote Sensing Laboratory/National Aerial Measuring System (RSL) of Las Vegas, Nev., to conduct this second flyover following a similar survey of lab property in August 2011, after the Las Conchas fire.

  • Thank You 06-12-12

    On behalf of the cowpokes who had a knee-slapping-good time at Cowboy Night, May 4, the LA Stable Owners Association wishes to thank the wranglers responsible.  
    First up, thanks to Cyndi Wells (Pet Pangaea) and Georgia Strickfaden (Buffalo Tours) for bountiful donations. The home range at the Posse Lodge provided a perfect setting.  At the chow line, Steve Wallin’s chuck wagon and succulent smoked beef made this an up-town rodeo.  
    Beyond the campfire, Kenny’s North Carolina BBQ cooked up some great beans and vittles. In the back 40, Ron Lucero deftly taught young dudes to rope, which was the high score of the evening.

  • Las Conchas: Fire and water

    Last week, I attended a conference “Impacts and Lessons Learned from the Las Conchas Fire,” sponsored by New Mexico’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research.  NM EPSCoR is funded by the National Science Foundation, and this year their focus was to research the impacts of climate change on Northern New Mexico water resources.
    The Las Conchas Fire broadened their focus to the environmental impacts of wildfire--with water and water quality as an important subtext.  The Whitewater-Baldy Complex wildfire gave the meeting added urgency.
