  • Assets in Action: August is Assets month

    Welcome to Assets month. That’s right, the month of August will be proclaimed Asset building month for 2012.
    The Los Alamos County Council will issue a formal proclamation at their meeting Aug. 7.
    The truth is, a lot of hard work goes into this program and to have the work recognized by the County Council, means a great deal.
    This work is a combined effort of both the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce and runs throughout the community.
    We do a lot of work with Los Alamos Public Schools, and for that I am grateful. This year, we will have Asset Ambassadors at each site, with a variety of resources at their fingertips for staff and families.

  • Cleaning up Dodge again

    State Investment Officer Steve Moise spoke last week about turning around his blighted agency. Moise, you may recall, is the Dudley Do-right chosen to clean up the State Investment Office, which manages the state’s permanent funds.
    I’ve heard Moise a couple of times now, along with Doug Brown, Moise’s counterpart at the State Treasurer’s Office a few years earlier. So I couldn’t help but wonder who we’ll be listening to a year from now describing the house cleaning at the New Mexico Finance Authority. And what new scandal will have erupted by then.

  • Giving back always a top priority

    As a British ex-pat, now American citizen, I watched the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games with anticipation. What would it show about the country I grew up in? Would it stand up to the overwhelming amazement of the Beijing Games?
    Well what it certainly did show is that we’re no Chinese!
    We don’t have their synchronization, nor maybe their order. But what it truly did show is our wit, our sprit and mainly our heart. I mean, who else’s Queen would jump out of a helicopter, and then go on to keep a stiff upper lip during a children’s choir singing and signing God Save The Queen.

  • Power restored in Pajarito Acres

    The Department of Public Utilities restored power in the LaSenda/Pajarito Acres area this morning after about an hour.

    DPU says crews were dispatched to the area and fixed the problem.

  • IOC: Chinese swimmer was tested

    LONDON — The IOC is weary of the doping innuendos being leveled against 16-year-old Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen.
    She broke the world record in winning gold in the 400-meter medley, and her performance has been critiqued since, most recently by executive director of the World Swimming Coaches Association John Leonard.
    Asked Tuesday about the allegations, IOC spokesman Mark Adams would not specifically address Leonard’s comments. But he seemed tired of the talk about Ye.
    “I think we need to get real here,” he said during the daily briefing. “I mean, these are world-class athletes competing at the very highest level with records being broken all over the place.”
    Adams also said Ye was tested after winning the gold.

  • Martinson picks up 6-shot victory, Anast nips Norman

    It was another huge showing at the Los Alamos City Championship for Tami Martinson.
    Martinson grabbed her fourth consecutive City title this weekend at Los Alamos Golf Course. Martinson carded the two low rounds of the women’s title flight, shooting an 81 Sunday to win the title.
    The City Championship was played Saturday and Sunday. More than 50 players took part in this year’s competition.
    Martinson, who has been dominant in City competition since she began her impressive title run, won by six shots over Ellen Stallings. Stallings, who played Martinson’s group Sunday, nearly kept pace with Martinson, shooting an 82. Stallings finished as this year’s runner-up.
