  • Keller addresses global warming

    Chick Keller will wrap up Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s Climate Change series with a talk titled, “Global Warming: What We Know and What the Current Hot Topics Are,” at 7 p.m. Dec. 14. The talk is free and open to the public.
    It is now well established that human emissions of so-called Greenhouse Gases are warming the planet.  Even top critics agree on the observed warming, that humans are the cause of rising CO2 in the atmosphere, and that this is causing warming.
    They deny however, that processes feedback positively in response to CO2 warming, thereby adding to the warming. And so the discussion has now moved to just how much warming there will be.

  • 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.
