  • LA entertains KC tonight

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team will tangle with an old foe tonight.
    For the 2012 homecoming contest, Los Alamos will meet the Kirtland Central Broncos. The Broncos, a Class 4A team from the Four Corners area, was once a regularly-scheduled opponent for the Hilltoppers but were pre-empted from the Hilltoppers’ schedule several years ago in favor of another Farmington-area team, the Aztec Tigers.
    The game is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Sullivan Field.
    Los Alamos (1-2) will make its second home appearance of the season tonight. It won the 2012 season opener over Pojoaque in convincing fashion, 55-14.
    However, the two road games for the Hilltoppers following their initial win were rough ones.
    The Hilltoppers were shut out at Farmington, 28-0, then were trounced in Albuquerque by St. Pius X, 41-0 a week ago.
    Los Alamos will attempt to right the ship, particularly on offense, which struggled with turnovers and miscues all throughout the St. Pius contest. Los Alamos didn’t get even particularly close to scoring against the Sartans.
    Traditionally, the Broncos have been known for their size upfront and this year appears to be no exception. On their roster, the Broncos list seven linemen who tip the scales at 240 pounds or above, including 285-pound senior defensive tackle Landon Love.

  • House chokes on Manhattan Project Park bill

    A majority of members of the House of Representatives Thursday voted in favor of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park Act, H.R. 5987. However, the bill failed to receive the two-thirds majority necessary to pass under suspension of House rules.

    The vote on the Manhattan Project National Historical Park Act was 237-180, about 50 votes short of a two-thirds supermajority, said Cindy Kelly, president of the nonprofit Atomic Heritage Foundation.

    H.R. 5987 establishes a Manhattan Project National Historical Park with one of the sites being Los Alamos.

    While the bill did not pass on the House floor today under suspension of House rules, the final vote of 237-180 met the test for a simple majority vote.

    Chairman Doc Hastings, who introduced the legislation, was quoted in the Oak Ridge, Tenn. newspaper as saying, “we’ve shown there is support for this park and will be working toward the goal of enacting this into law before the end of this year."

    On Thursday Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), who has been a critic of the bill, called for a roll call rather than let the bill pass by a simple voice vote.

  • Two visitors rescued at Bandelier

     

    Rangers responded to a report of two visitors from England suffering from what appeared to be heat exhaustion at the top of Alcove House located on the Main Loop Trail in Frijoles Canyon at Bandelier National Monument Thursday.

      Bandelier staff called the Los Alamos Fire Department Technical Rescue Team from Station 5 to assist in evacuating the couple from the top of the steep trail.  The severity of the couple’s heat related illness was lessened by two visitors, one a physician from Taos and the other a nurse, who provided medical assistance at Alcove House until crews arrived.

    Bandelier National Monument staff and the Los Alamos Fire Department Technical Rescue Team attempted to prepare a pulley system to transport the couple down the Alcove House trail ladders.  The operation was deemed unnecessary because the couple was able to walk down the ladders with the help of staff.  The couple was transported by ambulance to the Los Alamos Medical Center.
