  • Ministry hopes to hula in Hawaii

    Every ministry has its own way of spreading its message, whether it’s through preaching on Sunday morning, or by hosting community events that the public is invited to attend. One group, however, is taking a different approach to ministering. They do hula dancing.
    The Hula Mai Ka Lani group is a non-denominational christian ministry out of Santa Fe that has been together for about 10 years and is led by their Kumu, or leader, Kalani Hawn. Though the group is based in Santa Fe, families from Rio Rancho, Pojoaque and Los Alamos are members. Michael, Michele, Morgan, Patrick and Dylan Irish are a Los Alamos family that is part of the ministry.

  • Jewish Center to host annual community Passover Seder

    The Los Alamos Jewish Center will have its  annual community Passover Seder at 5:30 p.m. April 19 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center. The event is open to anyone interested in attending.
    The Seder is a ceremonial dinner filled with rituals designed to celebrate the Jewish people’s exodus from Egypt. The Seder, which is Hebrew for “order,” ushers in the week of Pesach in which Jews refrain from eating Chametz.  
    The celebration of Passover commemorates the delivery of the Jews from years of slavery, ultimately culminating in the birth of the Torah, the Five Books of Moses, at Mount Sinai.

  • Arizona dumps Duke in West Region semis

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Derrick Williams carried Arizona in the first half, keeping the Wildcats in the game against Duke. His teammates returned the favor in the final 20 minutes with an offensive barrage that stunned the defending national champions.
    Williams scored 25 of his career-high 32 points in the first half of Arizona's 93-77 victory Thursday night, helping the Wildcats reach the final eight for the first time since 2005.
    "As a team, we came together and willed ourselves to win," said Lamont Jones, who added 16 points. "Derrick is a great player, but we all contribute."

  • Regulators to assess safety at Ariz. nuclear plant

    PHOENIX (AP) — Utility regulators in Arizona set a Tuesday hearing with the operators of the nation's largest nuclear power plant to assess safety procedures there in the wake of Japan's nuclear accident.

    The hearing before the Arizona Corporation Commission will focus on the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station in Wintersburg, located about 50 miles west of downtown Phoenix.

    The triple-reactor plant supplies electricity to about 4 million customers in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and California.

    The nuclear crisis in Japan also has prompted the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to launch a review of U.S. nuclear plants.

  • Japanese nuke plant reactor breach 'grave and serious'--video extra

    TOKYO (AP) — A possible breach at Japan's troubled nuclear plant escalated the crisis anew Friday, two full weeks after an earthquake and tsunami first compromised the facility. The development suggested radioactive contamination may be worse than first thought, with tainted groundwater the most likely consequence.

    Japanese leaders defended their decision not to evacuate people from a wider area around the plant, insisting they are safe if they stay indoors. But officials also said residents may want to voluntarily move to areas with better facilities, since supplies in the tsunami-devastated region are running short.

  • Crews contain 70 percent of Colo. wildfire--video extra

    GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) — About 8,500 people were ordered to leave their homes Thursday as the second major wildfire to erupt this week in an outlying Denver suburb blackened 2.5 square miles.

    Officials ordered the evacuation of homes within a 4-mile radius of the fire near Franktown, about 35 miles southeast of Denver.

    High winds quickly spread the fire through grasses, brush and trees dried out from months of below-normal moisture. Strong winds fueled several grass fires on the eastern plains, including one that charred 8 square miles 95 miles southeast of Denver and burned two wooden bridges and a barn.

  • Los Alamos County medical director found dead

    New Mexico State Police located the body of Los Alamos County medical director Thursday afternoon near Ghost Ranch.

    Dr. Laura Kay, a resident of Rio Rancho, provided programmatic oversight and training of the various components of the EMS system.

    She was the subject of a missing person alert that was issued at 11 p.m. Wednesday after she failed to return home from work, said Los Alamos Deputy Fire Chief Patrick Sleik.

    Law enforcement was able to locate Kay's car Thursday through her OnStar communications system. State Police went to the location and discovered Kay's body near her car.

    The cause of death appears to be from a gunshot. A note was found on the front seat of her car, Sleik said.

  • Rules change on antelope licenses

    The Department of Game and Fish will conduct three public meetings in northeastern New Mexico this month to explain how landowners will be affected by new rules that change the way the state allocates private-land antelope licenses.
    The State Game Commission adopted the new rules affecting the Antelope Private Lands Use System, or A-PLUS, at its December 2010 meeting in Clovis.
    The rules were revised and adopted after consideration of Department recommendations, public comments during several commission meetings, more than 30 statewide public meetings, and hundreds of written public comments submitted over a period of more than two years.
