  • Six teens arrested on burglary charges

    Five Los Alamos juveniles and a youth from Jemez Springs were charged with burglary Wednesday in connection with break-ins reported at three homes on North Road.
    Los Alamos Deputy Police Chief Kevin Purtymun said the suspects included two 14, two 15 and two 16-year-old boys.
    “They split into teams of two and knocked on doors to see if anyone was home,” Purtymun said.
    The youth took off running after knocking on a door in which a woman answered and threatened to call police. The youth were caught at 1:40 p.m., shortly after police began receiving burglary reports from the area. The teenagers were referred to the juvenile probation officer.

  • LA leaders endorse Wilson candidacy

    Seventeen local leaders came out publicly Thursday to endorse Republican Heather Wilson in her candidacy for the U.S. Senate. She is seeking Democratic Sen. Jeff Bingaman’s seat who is retiring next year.

    Wilson’s endorsers noted her leadership in response to the Cerro Grande Fire, which devastated Los Alamos in May 2000 as well as her support for the national laboratories and their role in the nation’s defense.

  • Gary Johnson’s curious campaign for president

    It has now been almost a month and a-half since former Gov. Gary Johnson announced his candidacy for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, yet it’s still unclear why he’s running.
    A Gallup poll last week attempted to measure the name recognition among rank and file Republicans of the real or rumored potential candidates for the party’s nomination.
    Johnson came in dead last, trailing even a former pizza chain executive, Herman Cain, who recently made it official that he also seeks the GOP nomination.

  • Happy Valentine's Day

    Happy Valentine’s Day! Happy Memorial Day! Have a wonderful Fourth of July and a great Mother’s Day!
    What’s that you say? Memorial Day has passed us by and it’s not July yet?
    Well, why must our lives be so regulated that we can only celebrate something on a single day? There’s no law against giving your sweetheart a box of chocolates in June.
    If you feel patriotic, wave the flag and stoke up that barbeque in December. Send your mother a card every month telling her how much you love her. And seriously, is there any good reason to only celebrate Isaac Newton’s birthday just once a year?
    Okay, so maybe we don’t want kids randomly showing up at our doorstep asking for candy every other weekend.

  • Bible Answers: Hawking's view on the afterlife is a faith statement

    “Stephen Hawking has made the statement that there is no life after death.  How might Scripture respond to his comment?” — Joe

    Hawking’s statement is nothing less than a faith statement.  
    He has faith in his opinion.  He has faith in his ability to make pronouncements with a certitude that is based on nothing more than his own internal thoughts.
    The writers of the Bible were no strangers to people who exhibited similar kinds of faith.  

  • Fencing: Gulley wins LAFC tourney

    ck from a rough outing in the preliminary round to win the beginning fencing class tournament last week.
    Gulley topped his three teammates to win the tournament, held at the YMCA.
    The tournament began with a round of pool bouts before the fence-offs. Pool didn’t go so hot for Gulley, but he turned his fortunes around quickly.
    “After fencing poorly in the pools, Steve came back to take first on sheer grit and determination, despite being the smallest and youngest member in the class,” Los Alamos Fencing Club coach Tom Hill said. “That’s why his teammates call him ‘Mr. Scrappy.’”
    Ben Barlow was second in the beginners’ tournament, Tom Barlow finished third and Marshall Dillon was fourth.

  • Topes Notes: Isotopes pummeled by Sounds in series opener at Albuquerque

    After putting together two big offensive nights in a row, the Albuquerque Isotopes found themselves on the other end of a big offensive show Thursday night.

    The Isotopes will host three more games with the Sounds on this quick, four-game homestand, including tonight’s game at Isotopes Park. Fan-favorite entertainer Myron Noodleman will be at the park for tonight’s contest, which is set for 7:05 p.m. unless air quality conditions in Albuquerque force a postponement.

  • Basketball: Mavs win, move to within one game of title

    DALLAS (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki waited five long years for that elusive third victory over Miami, yet there was only a short celebration when it finally came.
    He briefly thrust both arms in the air, a sea of blue screaming around him, but then quickly walked off the floor.
    To Nowitzki, the real party can’t come until next week.
    “There’s really nothing to celebrate,” he said. “We’re going in there Sunday swinging, like we did today, from the jump, and hopefully steal one Sunday.”
    Nowitzki scored 29 points, driving for the go-ahead dunk with 2:45 remaining, and the Mavericks beat the Heat 112-103 on Thursday night to take a 3-2 series lead.
