    This year’s primary election is less than a month away, and as candidates enter the final sprint to the finish line the League of Women Voters lined up primary hopefuls for the District 5 state Senate and District 3 Public Regulation Commission races so the Los Alamos public could ask questions.

    Each race only has a Democratic primary. There are no Republican candidates for either post.

    Montoya said he was running to give District 5 constituents a new representation with a fresh perspective, while Martinez touted his extensive experience in the legislature.

    Volunteers as young as four years old worked alongside tribal elders to plant 200 fruit trees at San Ildefonso Pueblo this week. The project is another step in the pueblo’s effort to revitalize its traditions, culture and the health of its people through farming.

    “Water and land have always been sacred to our people,” said Farm Mentor Tim Martinez. “It’s all about bringing back good advice from our elders and grandparents, both through our senior center and from those that have left us.”

  • CMRR funding fight heads to Senate

    Ignoring a White House veto threat, the Republican-controlled House approved a $642 billion defense budget Friday that breaks a deficit-cutting deal with President Barack Obama and restricts his authority in an election-year challenge to the Democratic commander in chief.

  • I'll Have Another wins Preakness, Triple try next

    BALTIMORE (AP) — I'll Have Another did just that, winning another Triple Crown race with even more flash and dash than he did in the Kentucky Derby.

    By bolting past Bodemeister — again — this time in Saturday's Preakness, all that stands in the way of racing glory is the Belmont Stakes in three weeks.

    Win that and the smooth-striding 3-year-old will find himself in the company of Secretariat, Seattle Slew and Affirmed, the last to win thoroughbred racing's most coveted prize in 1978.

  • Ask Alex: Why do songs get stuck in your head?

    Music is a powerful medium. So powerful that it has the ability to claw its way through your ear canal and burrow itself deep inside your brain. At this point, there’s no escaping its clutches.
    The only way you can remove a song is by having another song fight its way inside you and wrestle the other song for control. So you have some power. You can choose whether you want to hum One Direction’s “You Don’t Know You’re Beautiful,” or whistle “Boyfriend” by Justin Bieber.
    At first, the song isn’t bad. You have just heard it for the first time, its catchiness making you tap your toes and bob your head.
