    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers did a victory lap, sharing the moment with their frenzied fans. They sprayed each other with ginger ale on the field to involve the AL championship series MVP in the celebration, and doused their manager with the contents of a water cooler.

  • Its getting scary out there

    It’s that time of year again.  The days are shorter and nights are cooler.  The aspens are slowly turning golden and Aquarius is rising in the seventh house (well actually, it’s rising in the south).  Store aisles are filled with cheap waxy candies and carved pumpkins glow on windowsills.  As October’s end creeps ever closer like a mutant troll, we see more and more instances of scary things that go bump in the night (and whack in the day).

  • Council freezes work on nuisance code revisions

    Updating the nuisance code was put on ice during the Los Alamos County Council meeting Tuesday night.

Furthermore, the council agreed that prioritized enforcement of current ordinances should proceed.

  • Nuke protesters face the judge

    The “LANL-8” protesters arrested last summer had their day in court Thursday.  
    “Seven of the eight members will stand trial in February,” member Marcus Page said. “The eighth person is in college so he took the plea bargain.”
    Their civil resistance in August led to the hearing in front of Magistrate Judge Pat Casados. The arrested protesters were part of a group of more than 100 activists who held a colorful demonstration in the streets of Los Alamos on the 65th anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima on Aug. 6.
