  • Jolie: New film should make people uncomfortable 


     Angelina Jolie said Monday she hopes her directorial debut “In the Land of Blood and Honey” will provoke a wider discussion about rape — something that the International Criminal Court’s prosecutor said could be extremely valuable in helping bring perpetrators to justice.
    Jolie, who received a Cinema for Peace award for her film and the group’s “honorary award for opposing war and genocide” for the movie focusing on the war in Bosnia late Monday, said she wants viewers to be “uncomfortable” when they see the film.

  • Triumph, tragedy dominate Grammy Awards 


    The splintered music world truly coalesces only one night of 365 for the Grammy Awards, and this year was united in the triumph of recovered British soul singer Adele’s trophy haul and the tragedy of Whitney Houston’s death.
    Adele swept the major honors of song, record and album of the year Sunday for her lost-love epic “21” and its driving single “Rolling in the Deep.” She picked up her final two awards after making her first public performance in months after being sidelined for throat surgery. Her total of six Grammys matched Beyonce for most ever by a female act.

  • PEEC presents a trail status talk

    Join Craig Martin, open space specialist for Los Alamos County and Dale Coker, ranger at Bandelier National Monument, for an update on post-fire trail conditions in the county and at the monument. The talk will be at 7 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center, 3540 Orange St., and is free and open to the public.

For people interested in volunteering to help with the repair work, Martin and Coker will provide information on how to get involved.

  • ‘King’s Lizard’ author visits LA

    “This is what my honored grandfather told me, all of it. Someone long ago taught him how to tell a tale, someone who knew what to do with the space between en años pasados and así fue. When we sat up together nights, waiting for babies to be born or for horses to foal, for travelers to return, or for news of the men who ran to the mountains after the uprising, he told me of those murderous times …” From the prologue of “The King’s Lizard: A Tale of Murder and Deception in Old Santa Fe,” by Pamela Christie

  • Lobos top Aztecs on the road

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — The No. 13 San Diego State Aztecs aren't used to losing like this.

    Kendall Williams scored 21 points and Drew Gordon had 17 points and 17 rebounds as New Mexico stunned the Aztecs 77-67 on Wednesday night in their loud, crazy arena to move into first place in the Mountain West Conference.

    The Lobos (21-4, 7-2) won their sixth straight game and held Chase Tapley, the conference's leading scorer, to seven points. He came in averaging 16.2 points and had been in double figures in 18 straight games. Tapley was held scoreless until making a layup with 4:38 to play.

    Jamal Fenton had 15 points for the Lobos.

  • Cory Geyer could make a push for 4A state title

    Nobody is going to concede anything to Cory Geyer at the Class 4A wrestling tournament.

    That’s just the way Geyer wants it.

    Geyer, the top wrestler for the Los Alamos Hilltoppers’ program for the past two seasons, will be one of the guys to beat in the 152-pound bracket at this weekend’s state championship. Geyer is projected to be a top-four seed heading in, but will be tested in what has been one of the toughest weight classes in the state in recent years.

    This year appears to be no exception with 10 of the 24 wrestlers entered have lost 10 bouts or less.
