  • Cardinals stun Texas, force World Series to Game 7

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Hours after David Freese's home run plunked down on the grass patch beyond the center field wall, long after the ballpark emptied, a message still burned bright on the scoreboard: "See you TOMORROW NIGHT for Game 7 of the World Series!"

    Whatever happens, whether the St. Louis Cardinals or Texas Rangers win, they'll have a hard time topping Thursday night.

    "You had to be here to believe it," St. Louis manager Tony La Russa said.

    In one of the greatest thrillers in baseball history, the Cardinals twice rallied when they were down to their last strike of the season. First, Freese saved them with a two-run triple in the ninth, then Lance Berkman delivered a tying single in the 10th.

  • Medicare premiums up but not as much as expected

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Good news for seniors: The government says Medicare's basic monthly premium will rise less than expected next year, by $3.50 for most.

    It could be good, too, for President Barack Obama and Democrats struggling for older Americans' votes in a close election.

    At $99.90 per month, the 2012 Part B premium for outpatient care will be about $7 less than projected as recently as May. The additional money that most seniors will pay works out to about 10 percent of the average Social Security cost-of-living increase they'll also be due.

    Some recently enrolled younger retirees will actually pay less. They were charged $115.40 a month this year, and they'll see that go down to $99.90.

  • Bandelier to open to private vehicles next week

    "In another step towards recovery after the Las Conchas Fire and monsoon floods, Bandelier is opening more trails and allowing visitors to drive into Frijoles Canyon on Oct. 31,”  announced Bandelier National Monument Superintendent Jason Lott.  "The last day of the well-received shuttle service from White Rock will be Sunday, Oct. 30," he added.

  • Correction 10-27-11

    In Wednesday’s edition of the Los Alamos Monitor, the story, “WR Visitor Center Costs Skyrocket” incorrectly stated that Councilor David Izraelevitz voted against the motion.
    Vice Chair Ron Selvage was the third vote against the motion. Izraelevitz wrote, “I am a strong supporter of the project, even given its revised cost.”

  • Council approves hospital payments

    Council unanimously approved supplemental Sole Community Hospital Provider (SCHP) payment adjustments for Los Alamos Medical Center in the amount of $80,697, Santa Fe’s CHRISTUS St. Vincent Hospital in the amount of $400,000 and Española Hospital in the amount of $60,000.
    The motion also specified that this supplemental payment is not to be added to the base payment for the program without council’s express approval. This prevents the state from automatically increasing the county’s future payments by the supplemental amount.
