  • Russian delegates take ideas home

    The Los Alamos Sarov Sister City Initiative (LASSCI) hosted a group of young professionals from Sarov, Russia, last week. The program was arranged through the Open World Leadership Center, which has coordinated exchange programs for future leaders since 1999. The program showcases democratic values and institutions.

    Exchanges between Sarov and Los Alamos began when the two became sister cities in the early 1990s. The exchanges have prompted changes in both cities.

  • Joint fire center coming

    As the one-year anniversary of New Mexico’s second largest wildfire on record approaches, an focused multi-federal agency effort is now underway to build a permanent Interagency Fire Center in the heart of Northern New Mexico’s fire country.

    Building upon the success of last year’s multi-agency coordination during the Las Conchas fire, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), Bandelier National Monument, and Santa Fe National Forest have again partnered to enhance northern New Mexico fire protection efforts by building a 6,400-square foot facility to serve as a joint coordination and response center for fire events.  

  • Santa Fe officials overdo it again

    SANTA FE — Most New Mexicans outside of Santa Fe know that some pretty weird things happen in our capital city. And most of what you’ve heard is true. Here’s another one to add to your list.
    The city of Santa Fe has a number of committees and boards designed to protect our 400-year heritage. It’s a good idea. No other communities in the nation have buildings that truly are 400 years old. But Santa Fe gets carried away protecting every other building in town.
    Last week, the Historic Districts Review Board declared four Depression-Era houses across the street west of the capitol as too precious to be torn down to make way for a state executive office building.

  • Sipping the tea of ignorance

    Why do babies cry?  The reason is simple enough — they learn to do what works.  Babies learn that crying gets attention, brings food, gets them what they want at the moment.
    Adults aren’t all that different from babies.  We learn to do what works.
     While campaigning back in 2008, President Obama angered Pennsylvanian voters when he characterized them as one issue voters clinging to their ideals on guns, God or gays.

  • Fishing to resume at Caldera

    Because of improved ecological conditions following last summer’s Las Conchas Fire, fishing will resume at Valles Caldera.
    Fishing will officially open at 8 a.m. Saturday and will continue through the end of the season, according to a press release from the Valles Caldera Trust.
    The Las Conchas Fire wreaked havoc on streams on Valles Caldera land, but ecological tests were done on the waters to see if conditions had improved to the point where fishing could be restarted. Trust officials supplemented scientific studies by bringing in professional fishing guide Bob Gerding to test the waters and gauge fishing quality.

  • Torres plays 306 holes on 'Longest Day'

    The Longest Day of Golf took less than the maximum amount of time.
