  • Big quake follows increase in Oklahoma rumblings--video extra

    SPARKS, Okla. (AP) — Clouds of dust belched from the corners of almost every room in Joe Reneau's house as the biggest earthquake in Oklahoma history rocked the two-story building.

    A roar that sounded like a jumbo jet filled the air, and Reneau's red-brick chimney collapsed and fell into the roof above the living room. By the time the shaking stopped, a pantry worth of food had been strewn across the kitchen and shards of glass and pottery covered the floor.

    "It was like WHAM!" said Reneau, 75, gesturing with swipes of his arms. "I thought in my mind the house would stand, but then again, maybe not."

  • Forecast has glimmer

    The New Mexico economy is not “rocketing” to recovery, claims by headlines in Albuquerque notwithstanding. Nor is any explosive takeoff expected.
    Growing some is what the state is doing. That is expected to continue, though getting back to 2 percent annual job growth isn’t even in the intermediate-term cards, much less being a near-term prospect.
    This modest assessment of the state comes from the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, the Department of Workforce Solutions and from the state’s consensus revenue estimate, released Oct. 19 by the Legislative Finance Committee.
    Mark Snead, Denver-based vice president and branch executive for the Kansas City Fed, has the happy situation of not being bound by other guys’ numbers.

    The project team will present optional improvements to the following course concerns: the current irrigation system, water storage facility, the possibility to expand the practice facility to mitigate safety concerns, the re-routing of holes, cart path replacement and potential renovations of fairways, bunkers, greens and tees.

  • NNSA reaches pact to produce Mo-99

    The National Nuclear Security Administration’s Global Threat Reduction Initiative announced today the signing of a cooperative agreement with NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes, LLC, to further the development of accelerator-based technology to produce molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) in the United States.
    The cooperative agreement between NNSA and NorthStar, which totals $4.6 million and is funded under a 50 percent/50 percent cost-share arrangement, will accelerate the development of the NorthStar technology to produce Mo-99 without proliferation-sensitive highly enriched uranium (HEU). The agreement would also support the goal of ensuring a reliable domestic supply of this critical medical isotope for U.S. patients.
