  • NNSA reaches pact to produce Mo-99

    The National Nuclear Security Administration’s Global Threat Reduction Initiative announced today the signing of a cooperative agreement with NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes, LLC, to further the development of accelerator-based technology to produce molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) in the United States.
    The cooperative agreement between NNSA and NorthStar, which totals $4.6 million and is funded under a 50 percent/50 percent cost-share arrangement, will accelerate the development of the NorthStar technology to produce Mo-99 without proliferation-sensitive highly enriched uranium (HEU). The agreement would also support the goal of ensuring a reliable domestic supply of this critical medical isotope for U.S. patients.

  • New administrator takes county helm Monday

    Harry Burgess has been busy the last month: wrapping up his duties as City Administrator for Carlsbad, preparing for his move to Los Alamos and prepping for his new position as Los Alamos County Administrator.

    In addition to all that, Burgess had to undergo emergency gall bladder surgery shortly after being hired Oct. 4, and following his doctor’s orders to avoid lifting has hindered packing.

    Burgess has been doing his best to be in a position to hit the ground running on Monday. He has spent considerable time e-mailing and consulting with staff by phone, including teleconferencing in on staff meetings.

  • County seeks wildfire grant to recoup expenses

    The funding process for a fire mitigation grant is underway to assist Los Alamos County in offsetting expenses incurred during last summer’s Las Conchas Fire.

    “The majority of the fire was on forest service land and adding up the losses for Los Alamos County, Sandoval County and a piece of Rio Arriba County did not reach the threshold for a Presidential Disaster Grant under the Stafford Act,” Emergency Management Coordinator Philmont Taylor said. “However, we do meet the requirements for the FMAG grant (Fire Management Assistance Grant.)”

  • Lobos remain winless

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — Walter Kazee ran for a career-high three touchdowns as San Diego State cruised to a 35-7 win over New Mexico on Saturday night.
    Ronnie Hillman, the FBS’s leading rusher, ran for 141 yards and a touchdown for the Aztecs (5-3, 2-2 Mountain West).
    The Lobos (0-9, 0-4), one of only two winless FBS teams, stretched their losing streak to 12 games. New Mexico’s last win came Nov. 6, 2010 against Wyoming.
    Kazee, who entered with five career rushing TDs, had never scored more than one in a game. Hillman, who came in averaging 151 yards per game, scored on a 1-yard run.
    San Diego State’s five rushing touchdowns were its most in more than 15 years.

  • ’Toppers fall to Chargers once again

    ALBUQUERQUE — It’s getting to be a pattern. If you ask Jiri Kubicek, it’s getting to be a mighty tiresome pattern.
    For the fifth straight season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team ended its season with a loss to the Albuquerque Academy Chargers. Unlike the previous three seasons, however, the loss came one round early.
    Academy scored twice in less than three minutes early in the first half, the second goal knocking Los Alamos for a loop in a 3-1 loss in the semifinal round of the state Class 4A tournament.

  • OT field goal puts LSU over Alabama

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — No. 1 LSU gained the inside track to the BCS title game, beating No. 2 Alabama 9-6 on Drew Alleman’s 25-yard field goal in overtime after a fierce defensive struggle in which neither team reached the end zone Saturday night.
    The Crimson Tide missed four field goals, including Cade Foster’s 52-yard attempt after Alabama got the ball first in the extra period. LSU appeared to win the game on Michael Ford’s run around left end after taking a pitch, but he stepped out of bounds at the 7.
