  • NBC secures Olympic TV rights through 2020

    LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Bob Costas made the pitch and NBC met the price.
    The peacock network outbid Fox and ESPN by almost a billion dollars Tuesday to win U.S. television rights to four more Olympics and keep the games through 2020.
    The result: a $4.38 billion knockout for NBC.
    Despite a recent change in ownership, the sudden departure of longtime Olympic chief Dick Ebersol and an uncertain economy, NBC and its parent company, Comcast, defied speculation that its grip on the Olympics was coming to an end.
    “I can say the Olympics are really in their DNA,” International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge said. “We’ve been together with them for so many games with great success.”

  • Pattinson sinks teeth into MTV Movie Awards

    UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (AP) — The MTV Movie Awards was more like “The Team Edward Show.”
    “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson sucked up the spotlight — and some popcorn-shaped trophies — at Sunday’s shenanigan-packed ceremony. Among the goofy actor’s moments: winning three different awards, unexpectedly kissing co-star Taylor Lautner, and slipping the F-word past censors when presenting Reese Witherspoon with the special MTV Generation Award.
    “It’s not always a bad thing to have sexual chemistry with your mother,” joked Pattinson, who played the son of Witherspoon’s character in “Vanity Fair” and her love interest in “Water for Elephants.”

  • Honors pile up for Swift

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Ludacris made a surprise appearance, as did Sheryl Crow’s underwear. Lady Antebellum laid down a funky beat with Charles Kelley doing a Don Henley impression. And a sassy Wynonna Judd put Kid Rock in his place.
    Actress Kristin Chenoweth’s first CMT Music Awards left quite an impression Wednesday night.
    “This show is entertaining,” Chenoweth said. “I think the Oscars could learn something from it.”

  • New Fox movie doesn’t have ‘X’ factor

    LOS ANGELES — Young X-Men don’t have the same box-office superpowers as their older selves.
    “X-Men: First Class” had a solid No. 1 opening with a $56 million weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.
    But the 20th Century Fox prequel chronicling the formative years of the comic-book mutants found smaller audiences than the franchise’s first four big-screen adventures, which featured older versions of the X-Men.
    Debut weekends for the last three “X-Men” flicks ranged from $85.1 million to $102.8 million. The original “X-Men” opened 11 years ago with $54.5 million, but that would amount to about $80 million today adjusting for ticket-price inflation.

  • Mountaineers to present Little's paddle along the Sea of Cortez

    The Los Alamos Mountaineers will host a presentation by Jackie Little as she describes her 65-mile paddle along the Sea of Cortez.
    Little’s presentation, “Paddling the Baja Desert Coast with Dick Opsahl,” is scheduled for 8 p.m. June 15 at Fuller Lodge. The presentation is free and open to the public.
    The trip, which was organized by Opsahl, a former Los Alamos resident, covered the distance of the coast from Loreto to La Paz.
    Opsahl invited Little and 12 more of his friends on the trek. The seven days on the water were filled with pre-dawn fishing, six-to-eight hours per day of paddling, snorkeling, beachcombing, fine dining and more.

  • Hidden History: TJ Sawyer meets Water Canyon Trail

    Water Canyon Trail is popular with many of the locals in Los Alamos.  
    It is a short, easy journey along an old wagon road through an aspen and pine forest.  Its scenic beauty is unsurpassed, boasting permanent streams, wildflowers and emerging butterflies.
    Paying closer attention, however, you may notice something more about this trail. There is definitely more than meets the eye.
    This is a trail that many have traveled hundreds of times. Bees collect pollen for their hives and evidence of deer and elk show the area’s popularity with the animal kingdom, as well.
    What might not be as well known, however, is that this trail has quite a bit of historical significance.
