  • Rangers rescue distressed hikers

    Tuesday’s Bandelier National Monument rescue was the first of the summer hiking season, Chief Ranger Tom Betts said.

    “This is our first major rescue,” he said.

    Three people were hiked out of Bandelier’s backcountry after becoming distressed and disoriented. The group – a 15-year-old male, a 48-year-old female and a 79-year-old female – headed out Monday with a three-day permit first making their way to Capulin Canyon to restock up on water and sleep for the night.

    But the group never made it, Betts said.

    “They evidently got disorganized and lost along the way,” he said.

    He said the hikers had run out of water hours earlier.

  • Tech innovations pull down more 'R&D 100' recognitions

    Technology innovations at Los Alamos National Laboratory have been recognized with three of R&D Magazine’s 2012 “R&D 100” awards.
    These awards honor the top 100 proven technological advances of the year, as selected by a group of R&D Magazine’s chosen judges.
    “Congratulations to this year’s R&D 100 award winners,” said Energy Secretary Steven Chu. “The research and development at the Department of Energy’s laboratories continues to help the nation meet our energy challenges, strengthen our national security and improve our economic competitiveness.”

  • Robot Rodeo winds down
  • Russian delegates take ideas home

    The Los Alamos Sarov Sister City Initiative (LASSCI) hosted a group of young professionals from Sarov, Russia, last week. The program was arranged through the Open World Leadership Center, which has coordinated exchange programs for future leaders since 1999. The program showcases democratic values and institutions.

    Exchanges between Sarov and Los Alamos began when the two became sister cities in the early 1990s. The exchanges have prompted changes in both cities.

  • Joint fire center coming

    As the one-year anniversary of New Mexico’s second largest wildfire on record approaches, an focused multi-federal agency effort is now underway to build a permanent Interagency Fire Center in the heart of Northern New Mexico’s fire country.

    Building upon the success of last year’s multi-agency coordination during the Las Conchas fire, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), Bandelier National Monument, and Santa Fe National Forest have again partnered to enhance northern New Mexico fire protection efforts by building a 6,400-square foot facility to serve as a joint coordination and response center for fire events.  

  • Santa Fe officials overdo it again

    SANTA FE — Most New Mexicans outside of Santa Fe know that some pretty weird things happen in our capital city. And most of what you’ve heard is true. Here’s another one to add to your list.
    The city of Santa Fe has a number of committees and boards designed to protect our 400-year heritage. It’s a good idea. No other communities in the nation have buildings that truly are 400 years old. But Santa Fe gets carried away protecting every other building in town.
    Last week, the Historic Districts Review Board declared four Depression-Era houses across the street west of the capitol as too precious to be torn down to make way for a state executive office building.

  • Sipping the tea of ignorance

    Why do babies cry?  The reason is simple enough — they learn to do what works.  Babies learn that crying gets attention, brings food, gets them what they want at the moment.
    Adults aren’t all that different from babies.  We learn to do what works.
     While campaigning back in 2008, President Obama angered Pennsylvanian voters when he characterized them as one issue voters clinging to their ideals on guns, God or gays.
