  • Watch birds take flight in November

    It is fall again and more than 500 sandhill cranes have arrived at Las Vegas National Wildlife Refuge with snow geese soon to follow, heralding the annual migration of wintering birds. The refuge is located on state highway 281, just east of the Las Vegas.
    The Annual Fall Wildlife Drive will be open to visitors from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. each Sunday in November. This 4 1/2 mile self-guided drive will take adventureres through the short-grass prairie and past lakes, marshes and croplands that serve as habitat for a multitude of migratory birds, including a wide variety of waterfowl, geese, eagles, hawks and sandhill cranes.
    Volunteer roving naturalists will be on hand with spotting scopes to help identify birds.

  • Dripping faucets, homespun humor and murder

    Los Alamos’s own James D. Doss will sign his newest Charlie Moon mystery, “Coffin Man,” at 6 p.m. Friday at Otowi Station Bookstore.
    When Colorado rancher and part-time tribal investigator Charlie Moon gets a call from Wanda Naranjo, she’s panicked. Not only is her sink leaking, which Moon fixes, but her 16-year-old daughter Betty, has gone missing. For how long? Only a few hours, but she’s pregnant. So what about the father-to-be? It’s a good question and anybody’s guess. Betty has kept her lips sealed on the subject.

  • Penn St. campus is rattled

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — After nearly a half-century on the job, Joe Paterno says he is still getting used to the idea of not being Penn State’s football coach. So is the rest of the shaken campus, after one of the most tumultuous days in its history.
    In less than 24 hours Wednesday, the winningest coach in major college football announced his retirement at the end of the season — then was abruptly fired by the board of trustees.
