  • Efficiency in regulations

    A lack of sturdy regulation is a large, worsening problem for the nation’s economy in all its aspects. Today’s essay outlines sorely needed advances of large scope. Ensuing columns will amplify key features. Judge the whole.
    Dept. of Regulatory Science & Technology Tools move us faster than slogans. A painting can show new ways of seeing things, unless we stand too near it. It works the same with regulation.

  • Girls tennis: Toppers place third at tournament

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team placed third at its home-away-from-home invitational Saturday.
    Los Alamos hosted a singles and doubles tournament Saturday. However, because Los Alamos lacks a centralized location to hold a big tournament, it was played at Capital High School in Santa Fe.
    The Hilltoppers finished with nine team points in the tournament, which included three singles draws and two doubles draws.
    Not surprisingly, the Farmington Scorpions, the two-time defending Class 4A champions and the odds-on favorites to win again in 2011, easily claimed the team title. Farmington grabbed 30 points at the tournament, more than the next three teams combined. Rio Rancho’s Sue Cleveland finished in second place with 12 points.

    BREGA, Libya (AP) — Libyan government forces on Tuesday unleashed a withering bombardment of the rebels outside a key oil town, pushing them back despite NATO reports that nearly a third of Moammar Gadhafi's heavy weapons have been destroyed.

    The rebels managed to take part of the oil town of Brega the day before, aided by an international air campaign, but the rocket and artillery salvos unleashed on the rebels indicates the government's offensive capabilities remain very much intact.
