  • Students on a mission

    Just about everyone at Los Alamos Middle School is lending the community a helping hand.
    Each of the LAMS “Hawk” groups has the responsibility of raising money for the community by way of a food drive. Each group is supposed to bring in cans of food that will be distributed to needy Los Alamos families this holiday season.
    Heading up this project is Tina Derr, leader of E2, or Eternal Encouragement, a  Christian club open for middle school students during their lunch break, that allows them to hear some Christian encouragement from local youth leaders and pastors. In addition, the group offers games, fellowship and preparation for service projects.

  • Cain Train comes to a halt--video extra

    ATLANTA (AP) — The Cain train has come to a stop.

    Republican candidate Herman Cain is suspending his bid for the Republican presidential nomination to avoid continued news coverage of allegations of sexual misconduct that is hurtful to his family.

    "I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distractions and the continued hurt caused on me and my family," Cain told several hundred supporters gathered at what was to have been the opening of his national campaign headquarters.

    Cain's announcement came five days after an Atlanta-area woman claimed she and Cain had an affair for more than a decade, a claim that followed several allegations of sexual harassment against the Georgia businessman.

  • Cops nab suspect in Pojoaque trailer park murder

  • NM Wiccan follower gets 20 years for killing

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque woman who pleaded no contest to fatally stabbing a man with a dagger she planned to use as part of a Wiccan ritual was sentenced to 20 years in prison Friday.

    Angela Sanford, 31, received the maximum sentence at a hearing in Albuquerque District Court.

    Sanford stabbed Joel Leyva, 52, more than a dozen times in the head, neck and stomach with a dagger used in Wiccan rituals called an athame, authorities said. It happened in early 2010 near a popular hiking trail on the eastern edge of Albuquerque.

  • A life form unto itself

    I was watching a television show the other day,  which had a panel of political columnists who were taking phone calls from people.  
    One caller had read a story in a newspaper about a radio program that was debating an issue brought up during a discussion show on television that was critiquing a magazine article.  
    As I mentally reconstructed this nested communications tree — magazine to TV to radio to newspaper to phone to TV  — and then considered the fact that readers would now be reading about this in a newspaper, I began to understand the true meaning of recursion.  
    Maybe we should discuss your opinions about my opinions about their opinions over the radio some day?
