  • Defining the Orthodox Christian Church

    What is the Orthodox Christian Church? — George P.

    Multitudes of names for many differing Christian groups is a relatively recent development within Christianity. The ancient church was one community and thus needed one name — Christian. That one group exists today. The ancient church was founded by Christ and His Apostles and was established on Pentecost by the Holy Spirit. The ancient Christians received a lifestyle from Christ, not merely a new moral code; they believed particular things about God and their relationship with Him.

    Campaign contribution limits challenged

    SANTA FE — The state Republican Party, GOP legislators and others are asking a federal court to invalidate part of a newly imposed state law limiting certain campaign contributions.
    They filed a lawsuit Friday contending it’s unconstitutional to cap the amount that can be contributed to political parties and restrict how much they can give to local party organizations or candidates.
    The contribution limits were enacted in 2009 but took effect after last year’s general election. Previously, political committees and most candidates in New Mexico could accept contributions of any amount.

  • Lab, subcontractors help flood-damaged Santa Clara Pueblo

    LANL and a consortium of major subcontractors, including EnergySolutions and Frank’s Supply Company, teamed to help Santa Clara Pueblo this week as families there struggle with the effects of flooding caused by the Las Conchas Fire.

    Two front-end loaders from EnergySolutions will help the Pueblo remove debris and mud from retention ponds and drainages. Without properly functioning flood controls, storm water simply flushes down canyon—taking trees, boulders, trash, and anything in its way.

  • LA opens district vs. Bernalillo tonight

    Last weekend was the most successful weekend District 2-4A’s football teams have had all season, making the start of the district season all the more interesting.

    After all five 2-4A teams got off to an unimpressive start to the season, three teams picked up victories in the final week before district play starts. Santa Fe, Bernalillo and Los Alamos are all going into the 2-4A season off of victories.

    Los Alamos’ victory may have been the most impressive, however, as it knocked off the Albuquerque Academy Chargers, No. 4 in Class 3A heading into last week’s game at Sullivan Field. Los Alamos gave up just 164 yards total offense and didn’t allow an Academy offensive score as it won 36-20.

  • T-Board Discusses Committee Changes

    The Transportation Board voiced a number of misgivings about the NM 502 Corridor Study Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) when Acting Assistant County Administrator Anne Laurent presented her report on changes to the committee.

    The county’s contract with MIG specified that it must seek input from a technical advisory committee for its corridor study. The committee was comprised of staff from the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT), the Transportation Department, other county departments such as Community Development and representatives from stakeholders, including the fire department, Los Alamos National Laboratory, local businesses and citizens.

  • Tigers knock off Yankees in ALDS

    NEW YORK (AP) — Now the Detroit Tigers can believe anything is possible.
    They beat the New York Yankees in Game 5. At Yankee Stadium. Escaping jam after jam.
    Now it’s on to Texas, and the AL championship series starting Saturday night.
    “It’s a tremendous feeling,” Doug Fister said after getting the 3-2 win Thursday. “You got to take this thing one step at a time and try to just soak it all in as we go.”
    Fister, not even with the Tigers until July 30, gutted through five mostly tricky innings to form an unlikely trio of stars.

  • Ross wins final Pace Race of 2011

    Inez Ross was the big winner in the final Pace Race of the 2011 season Tuesday.
    The Atomic City Roadrunners concluded their season with the Cooper’s Run at the Canyon Rim Trail. The Cooper’s Run, a 1.5-mile race, is designed to compare fitness improvement from the start to the end of training — the first Pace Race in April was also the Cooper’s Run.
    Ross finished just one second off of her predicted time at Tuesday night’s race. Jamie Jablin and Duane Marr both finished with prediction errors of 15 seconds.
    Jablin was also the fastest finisher on the course with his time of 9 minutes flat. Christie Kelly had the top women’s finish with her time of 13:54.
