  • Responding to those with AIDS

    “How might the Bible shape my response to people with AIDS?”—John

    Basically, two perspectives appear in Scripture. In the ancient Hebrew texts, you will find that God apparently used plague more than once as a means of judgment on those who were in rebellion against Him (Num. 16:41-50; Deut. 28:58ff.) From this observation, you may conclude that AIDS sufferers are being punished by God and thus should be ostracized, even condemned. The close association of AIDS and the homosexual community has made this a quick and ready conclusion for many people over the last 30 years.

  • Accusations continue to fly in alleged drug probe

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP)  — Accusations continue to fly about who’s being targeted in an alleged FBI cocaine investigation in Santa Fe.
    Earlier this week, a fired state police officer said during an arbitration hearing that he lost his job because he was helping investigate a drug case involving Santa Fe City Manager Robert Romero and Congressman Ben Ray Lujan. Both vehemently denied the allegations. Then former Det. James Vigil -- who was fired after a 2010 DWI -- said it was not Lujan but Public Regulation Commission Jerome Block who was being investigated.
    Now Block tells the Albuquerque Journal in a story Friday that he believes Lujan and his father, House Speaker Ben Lujan, manipulated Vigil to change his story.

  • Young Toppers looking for improvement

    A big chunk of the roster of the 2011 Los Alamos Hilltopper football team has limited or no varsity experience.
    Those youngsters, however, will get tested in a hurry this season.
    The Hilltoppers’ season kicks off Saturday against Pojoaque. Game time is 1:30 p.m.
    Even before the first snap, however, the Hilltoppers will have plenty of challenges ahead of them this season. The Hilltoppers have only 25 players listed on the varsity roster, more than half of those being freshmen or sophomores, the majority of which have little or no experience at the varsity level.

  • Salazar named LANL's tribal relations liaison


    Earl Salazar is Los Alamos National Laboratory’s new tribal liaison in the Government Affairs Office.
    Previously a budget analyst for LANL’s Chief Financial Officer Division, Salazar began working in his new capacity on Monday.
    Salazar succeeds Elmer Torres, who retired after 41 years of service, the last decade of which he was involved with LANL’s tribal affairs efforts.
    “Earl brings to his new position broad and deep tribal government experience with the Native American community of New Mexico and significant business and finance expertise from more than two decades working in the office of the LANL Chief Financial Officer,” said Government Affairs Office Director Patrick Woehrle.
