  • Santa Fe rolls over Los Alamos in key contest, 62-30

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team fell into a big hole late in the second quarter and early in the third quarter Friday night and never climbed its way out.

    Los Alamos hosted Santa Fe Friday night in a game that would’ve all but clinched the District 2-4A title for the Hilltoppers. Instead, the Santa Fe dynamic duo of Jordan Booth-Homer and Anthony Abeyta came up huge, leading the Demons to a 62-30 rout at Sullivan Field.

    The Demons now control their own destiny in the district championship race while the Hilltoppers must hope for an upset by Bernalillo over Santa Fe in two weeks.

    More on Friday’s game will be in Sunday’s Los Alamos Monitor.

  • Foreign policy questions mount as final debate nears

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Sensing a moment of political vulnerability on national security, Republicans pounced Friday on disclosures that President Barack Obama's administration could have known early on that militants, not angry protesters, launched the attack on U.S. diplomats in Libya.

    Within 24 hours of the deadly attack, the CIA station chief in Libya reported to Washington that there were eyewitness reports that the attack was carried out by terrorists, officials told The Associated Press. But for days, the Obama administration blamed it on an out-of-control demonstration over an American-made video ridiculing Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

    Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee, led Friday's charge.

    "Look around the world, turn on your TV," Ryan said in an interview with WTAQ radio in the election battleground state of Wisconsin. "And what we see in front of us is the absolute unraveling of the Obama administration's foreign policy."

  • Power outage at North Mesa

    An underground power failure affected parts of North Mesa at approximately 1:45 p.m. Thursday.  Specifically, a single phase of three phase power was lost to homes on San Ildefonso and Alamo Roads, reported officials at the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities.
    DPU’s electric line crews initiated temporary repairs by back feeding electricity to restore power to the Alamo neighborhood by 4:30 p.m. Power was restored to the remaining customers on San Ildefonso Road by 4:45 p.m.
    Permanent repairs will continue Friday, with a brief power outage expected as those repairs are finalized.  The underground line failed beneath the bus stop area at Hawks Landing and San Ildefonso.

  • NNSA awards $4M for STEM education

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Nuclear Security Administration announced that it has awarded $4 million in grants to 22 Historically Black Colleges and Universities and six Department of Energy sites in key science, technology, engineering and mathematics areas.
    The funding launches NNSA’s new Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program, a consortium program organized to build a sustainable STEM pipeline between DOE plants and laboratories and HBCUs
    The MSIPP is designed to enrich the STEM capabilities of HBCUs in a sustainable manner that aligns with the broad interests of DOE sites and emphasizes the entire career pipeline.
    The partnership also provides STEM students with the cutting edge resources and technology housed at DOE facilities, ultimately increasing STEM student retention.  
    “Hands-on participation in research is imperative for students in the STEM field,” said Dimitri Kusnezov, NNSA’s chief scientist. “The MSIPP will provide an opportunity for students to be exposed to state-of-the-art facilities and research, creating an opportunity to expand their knowledge and further prepare them for a career in STEM fields.”
    To achieve MSIPP’s goal, teams consisting of participants from select HBCUs and DOE plants and laboratories were developed.
