  • A tale of a bungled bacon blue burger

    Finding a place to grab a late-night bite to eat in Los Alamos is virtually impossible — and by late night, we’re talking after 8 p.m. The choices are limited to McDonald’s and Sonic, so if you’re looking for something other than fast food, you’re out of luck.
    There’s at least one restaurant that stays open past 8 p.m. — the Aspen Grill. Having the hankering for dinner after 8 p.m. one Friday night, it seemed like the perfect place to get a bite.

  • LAPD launches probe into local woman's death

    Los Alamos Police investigators want to know more about circumstances surrounding the recent death of a Los Alamos woman.

    For the past three weeks, the department has been investigating the death of 28-year-old Los Alamos resident Jamie Lee Ireland, who died May 31.

    On May 20, the Consolidated Dispatch Center received a call that Ireland had sustained injuries after a fall down a flight of stairs at 802 9th Street Apartment #22 – though a review of dispatch logs from that day did not include any account of the initial incident.

    But police are looking into whether foul play was involved in the incident or not which is what’s being investigated, Captain Randy Foster said.

  • Bear slightly injures young girl

    Ponderosa Group Campground will be closed for up to 10 days, pending the capture of a black bear, who swatted at a tent occupied by two members of a scout pack visiting the area.

    At approximately 4 a.m. Wednesday, a black bear swatted at a tent occupied by a sleeping girl and her mother, according to Dan Williams, spokesperson for New Mexico Game and Fish. The tent was torn, and the bear’s claws grazed the 
back of the juvenile’s neck, causing a minor abrasive injury.

    “They heard the scratching on the tent and they ran out and scared the bear,” Williams said.
    When asked how did they know it was a black bear, Williams said it was “the only kind of bear we have in New Mexico.”
