  • Pile Burns Continue

    Burn Boss Bill Armstrong ignites a pile of Ponderosa pine slash during Friday’s burn operation by the Santa Fe National Forest and the Los Alamos County Parks Division. Pile burns will continue through Monday in Walnut, Pueblo and Bayo canyons.

  • Weekend lessons

     I attended my son’s first basketball game recently. As I watched these little guys in their oversized shirts stuffed into long baggy shorts, I was hopeful.
     They had fun. They played hard. They were good sports. They tried their best. They learned some lessons, too.
    They learned that you don’t always get the ball. They learned that sometimes you can make mistakes, but you are expected to keep playing and not quit.  They learned that if you fall down, people care, but they want you to get up and keep going.  

  • GOP treated Johnson shabbily

    To the surprise of almost no one, Gary Johnson bid a less than fond farewell to the Republican Party a couple of weeks ago.
    Whereupon, he signed on as a member of the Libertarian Party and announced that he will seek that party’s presidential nomination this year.
    That Johnson opted to make the Libertarian Party his political home is understandable.   
    Philosophically, the former-Republican former governor has always evidenced libertarian propensities with an ill-disguised disdain for government and what he deems its intrusive role in human affairs.
    Nor is his quest of the Libertarians’ presidential nomination in the least unexpected.

  • Fashion Maven: Jewelry can be a girl’s best friend

    Have you ever had one of those mornings where you had an outfit all planned out in your head before you went to bed that night, but when you put it on the next morning, it didn’t turn out as fabulous as you thought?
    Maybe planning outfits the day before I wear them is just my fashion nerdiness getting to me, but surely you know what I mean. How can you spice up an outfit when it’s bland, you’re in a time crunch, or you just feel lost? The answer, ladies, is jewelry.
    It is true that jewelry can make or break an outfit, so it should be added in small, yet significant doses. When many women think of jewelry, they think of necklaces, which are essential to an outfit.

  • LAHS brings students daily news

    A new building has been constructed to provide Los Alamos High School students with a better learning environment. And despite the fact that students go about their daily lives, something has been missing on campus, specifically, news targeted to meet the informational needs and interests of teens.
    Beginning this week, LAHS students will be able to view a televised news program broadcast by students who bring them news about campus life.
    The program is designed to reach students with current news and stories that make a difference and impact their daily lives. The 10- to 15-minute program will not only share news, but will also voice the opinions of various students around campus.

  • Korn adapts to a changing world

    Despite the fact that Korn is considered Nu-metal, they have been rocking the minds of heavy metal fans with new sound, just shy of 20 years.
    During those years, Korn has always been known as an innovative, edgy band. 2011 proved to be no different for the Berkeley, Calif. band.
    “The Path Of Totality” was released on Dec. 2, 2011. Fans that have followed Korn since the 90s, may have a hard time following the band on this album, as it breaks away from the classic heavy bass and guitar sound to adopt dub-step beats.
    With collaborations of big name dubstep artists such as Skrillex, Noisia and Kill The Noise, “The Path” boasted high chart-topping singles.
