  • Winter Is Stubborn

    Winter isn't backing down, as Los Alamos residents woke up to snow Friday and Saturday morning.

  • Protecting the LANL workers

    Rick Newton, Taos Republican candidate for U.S. Congress in District 3, blasted his opponent, Ben Ray Lujan, this week for endangering our national security and for his uncaring attitude toward the nearly 800 people losing their jobs at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).  
    Rick Newton ripped the incumbent, Ben Ray Lujan, saying “Once again, Lujan has chosen the narrow partisan interests of President Obama over the jobs of highly skilled workers in northern New Mexico.” Lujan actually said “LANL is not immune from these cuts in the President’s budget”, as though they were only trimming a little fat out of the Obama administration’s bloated Government.

  • More about logrolling

    The Los Alamos Monitor reports that the “search for county attorney commences.” The candidate must, according to the first item on their list of qualifications, provide advice and counsel on topics that include development and interpretation of county ordinances and policies.
     In the county council meeting of Feb. 28, county attorney Brian James likened logrolling to fraud and said that his office would never recommend putting a logrolling ballot proposal before the voters, and this was so reported in the Los Alamos Monitor.

  • Cafeteria offers students a variety

    Everyone who’s been to Los Alamos High School knows there is a cafeteria, and everyone who knows about the cafeteria has probably eaten there at least once since it opened. 
    So as with everything on planet Earth, there are those who like it and those who hate it.
    I lean toward the “like” category.  Note to freshman: one big reason you should accept the cafeteria’s offerings is because the food is great, compared to the middle school’s glue and plastic (supposedly) mac and cheese they offer with some meals. 
    For the rest of the student body, the cafeteria works just like any other cafeteria … it’s as good as it’s going to get.

  • Fashion Maven: Clothes make the man

    After receiving numerous suggestions to write about guys’ fashion, I have decided to fulfill the requests.
    Fashion for men is as broad a subject as women’s fashion, so I have decided to narrow down this column to what a man should not do when he dresses himself in the morning. Ahem, guys: this might be a good time to listen up because I speak for a vast majority of ladies, here.

  • Baseball team scores 3 late to win at tourney

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team picked up a third-place finish at the Andres Arguello Memorial Tournament this weekend.
    Los Alamos scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning against Socorro (Texas) Saturday to win the tournament’s third-place game, 7-5. Los Alamos won two of three contests at the tournament, but fell 10-0 in the semifinal to host St. Pius X.
    The third-place finish was an accomplishment for the Hilltoppers, particularly the seniors, who had never placed better than fourth at the Arguello tournament.
    In Saturday’s game against Socorro, Hilltopper ace JD Weiss threw four hitless innings in a critical stretch to keep his team with Socorro.

  • Boys, girls track teams finish 2nd at APS

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls track and field teams grabbed solid second place finishes at Saturday’s Albuquerque Public Schools Kickoff Meet.

    The Hilltopper girls were just nipped by the Class 5A Volcano Vista Hawks, a team that could potentially vie for the big schools championship. The Hilltoppers rolled up 98 points, including some big performances by its two stars, Laura Wendelberger and Chase Ealey.

    On the boys side, Los Alamos finished with a healthy total of 89 points, again second to Volcano Vista. David Stroud and Chris Ryan both won events Saturday, while Los Alamos had a host of individual second place finishes.
