  • Japan nuclear evacuation fatal for old, sick--Video Extra

    MINAMI-SOMA, Japan (AP) — The doctors and nurses at Futaba Hospital pleaded for help as a radioactive plume wafted over their hospital. They had been ordered out but had no vehicles to evacuate the hundreds of patients in their care. After two days of waiting in the cold with no electricity, help finally came.

    Nearly two dozen patients died in the chaotic, daylong odyssey that followed.

    Japan’s government says only one person, an overworked employee at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, died as a result of the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. But one year later, details from a new report and interviews with local authorities show many more perished because of bad planning and miscommunication between government agencies.

  • Winter Is Stubborn

    Winter isn't backing down, as Los Alamos residents woke up to snow Friday and Saturday morning.

  • Protecting the LANL workers

    Rick Newton, Taos Republican candidate for U.S. Congress in District 3, blasted his opponent, Ben Ray Lujan, this week for endangering our national security and for his uncaring attitude toward the nearly 800 people losing their jobs at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).  
    Rick Newton ripped the incumbent, Ben Ray Lujan, saying “Once again, Lujan has chosen the narrow partisan interests of President Obama over the jobs of highly skilled workers in northern New Mexico.” Lujan actually said “LANL is not immune from these cuts in the President’s budget”, as though they were only trimming a little fat out of the Obama administration’s bloated Government.

  • More about logrolling

    The Los Alamos Monitor reports that the “search for county attorney commences.” The candidate must, according to the first item on their list of qualifications, provide advice and counsel on topics that include development and interpretation of county ordinances and policies.
     In the county council meeting of Feb. 28, county attorney Brian James likened logrolling to fraud and said that his office would never recommend putting a logrolling ballot proposal before the voters, and this was so reported in the Los Alamos Monitor.

  • Cafeteria offers students a variety

    Everyone who’s been to Los Alamos High School knows there is a cafeteria, and everyone who knows about the cafeteria has probably eaten there at least once since it opened. 
    So as with everything on planet Earth, there are those who like it and those who hate it.
    I lean toward the “like” category.  Note to freshman: one big reason you should accept the cafeteria’s offerings is because the food is great, compared to the middle school’s glue and plastic (supposedly) mac and cheese they offer with some meals. 
    For the rest of the student body, the cafeteria works just like any other cafeteria … it’s as good as it’s going to get.

  • Fashion Maven: Clothes make the man

    After receiving numerous suggestions to write about guys’ fashion, I have decided to fulfill the requests.
    Fashion for men is as broad a subject as women’s fashion, so I have decided to narrow down this column to what a man should not do when he dresses himself in the morning. Ahem, guys: this might be a good time to listen up because I speak for a vast majority of ladies, here.
