  • Seeds For Change

    There are food drives and blood drives, but it’s likely that very few have ever heard of a seed ball drive.
    Local Boy Scout and Los Alamos Youth Leadership member Jin Park has organized a “seed ball drive,” to take place Aug. 20, in Los Alamos and White Rock.
    “In wake of our evacuation and the continuing flames of the Las Conchas fire, I figured something could be done to help restore vegetation to burned areas,” Park said. “The idea came in the form of seed balls.”
    Park, a Los Alamos High School senior, athlete and musician, is organizing the community project as part of his requirements for Eagle Scout.

  • Local teens show off their skills

    The Los Alamos Sportsmen’s Club is hosting the Second Annual State Youth Shotgun Competition Aug. 27.
    Local organizer Mike O’Neill and Mark Gruber of the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish have been working on the event for several months.
    “The purpose of the competition is to bring together youth shotgun teams from across New Mexico to compete in trap, skeet, and bunker trap”, O’Neill said.
    “We hope to have at least 10 teams comprised of both boys and girls aged 12 to 17.”
    The local teams were formed three weeks before the first state competition last year. Los Alamos had the only female entrants in the 2010 competition and will have even more girls competing this year, O’Neill said.

  • Appeals court strikes health insurance requirement

    ATLANTA (AP) — A federal appeals court panel on Friday struck down the requirement in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul package that virtually all Americans must carry health insurance or face penalties.

    The divided three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the so-called individual mandate, which is considered the centerpiece of the law, siding with 26 states that had sued to block the law. But the panel didn't go as far as a lower court that had invalidated the entire overhaul as unconstitutional.
