  • US economy adds 163K jobs, rate rises to 8.3 pct.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers added 163,000 jobs in July, a sign that the economy and hiring remains sluggish.

    The Labor Department said Friday that the unemployment rate rose to 8.3 percent from 8.2 percent in June.

    July's hiring was the best since February. Still, the economy has added an average of 151,000 jobs a month this year — enough to keep up with population growth but not enough to drive down the unemployment rate.

    The Nomads have been playing Los Alamos concerts for about 30 years. Members have come and gone except for Wilfred Romero, a founding member. Eddy Partridge joined a few years later.
