  • LA’s Cory Geyer takes third place at state 4A tourney

    RIO RANCHO – Cory Geyer was the top finisher for the Los Alamos Hiltoppers at this weekend’s state Class 4A championship meet.

    Geyer bounced back from a loss in the semifinals at 152 pounds to knock off an old foe in Keonny Gonzales and pick up his second win of the tournament over Isaiah Valdez of Aztec.

    The top-three finish by Geyer was one of the few bright spots for the Hilltoppers at the state meet, held Friday and Saturday at the Santa Ana Star Center.

    Geyer progressed through to the semifinals Saturday, only one of two Hilltoppers to survive two rounds Friday. He earned a first round pin over Irving Lopez of Farmington in round two after receiving an opening-round bye.

  • Hilltopper girls take eighth place at state championship

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper swimming and diving teams finished well off the pace at the 2011-12 state championship meet this weekend.

    The state title meet was hosted again this year by Albuquerque Academy, which itself saw its impressive streak of boys team title victories snapped.

    Los Alamos’ push to make a good showing at state never materialized. It finished eighth in the girls final standings with 114 points, while it managed just a 22nd-place finish on the boys side.

    Academy’s girls scored a decisive team victory, picking up 339 points, 72 points better than runner-up Las Cruces.

  • Year is up for Martinez

     A couple of months after Susana Martinez took office, I ran into an old friend who was once active in Republican party affairs and asked him whether he thought the new governor was up to the job.
    “Not yet,” he replied with a chuckle, “but give her a year and she should be.”
    My friend’s tempered response came in the wake of Martinez’s nomination of former Republican U.S. Sen. Harrison Schmitt to be her secretary of the Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department.

  • A Place for Idea People

    Imagine a place in our downtown designed to address housing and other needs of our early career “idea people” ... scientists, technologists, artists and innovators of all type ... and entrepreneurs.  What would it look like?  Where might be a good location?  What related amenities would benefit both the residents and the larger community?  The Los Alamos Creative District Steering Committee facilitated by Los Alamos MainStreet has been putting thought and effort into these and other questions.  An early outcome from this work will be a visit to Los Alamos in early March by representatives of PLACE, a non-profit niche developer based in Minneapolis.

    New Mexico became a state 100 years ago, January 6, 1912, after 60 years as a Territory. In those 100 years and before, the land that encompasses the Jemez Mountains and Pajarito Plateau has undergone many changes from open and lightly inhabited  lands, to grazing land for thousands of livestock, to population development and urbanization.
