  • Police seek woman suspected in theft

    Martinez was working at Aspen Ridge last November when resident Robert Marr’s wallet disappeared from his room, according to police reports. The wallet contained about $80 in cash, a Bank of America credit card and a driver’s license and Medicare card both issued to Marr.

  • Explaining why we inherit the 'fallen state'

    Why did God expel Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden? — J.A.

    This verse is often misinterpreted, as are many verses in Genesis. People think that God drove Adam and Eve out because he was angry, no longer valuing them.
    In certain non-Orthodox theology, the sin of Adam and Eve makes them absolutely wicked and perverse. In these twisted interpretations, God kicks out the sinners because they sicken him. God forbid! Nothing could be further from the truth.
    The image of God remains in mankind after the fall. After the fall God still loves mankind.
    As we’ve mentioned before, we do not inherit the guilt of Adam but the “fallen state,” that is aging, sickness, death and a tendency toward sin.

  • It never had a chance

    It’s disturbing the way key decisions of state import — decisions, which properly should be left to the states’ legislatures and governors — are more and more being made or re-made by federal judges.
    Only a couple of weeks ago, federal District Judge William P. Johnson issued a preliminary injunction blocking enforcement of a 2009 law passed by the legislature and signed by then-Gov. Bill Richardson limiting election year contributions by individuals or certain organizations to political campaign committees.
    This is a state law that emerged by fits and starts after years of legislative struggle and compromises calculated to reign in the obscene sums of money it takes to run for public office today.

  • Webb picks up fencing ranking

    The Los Alamos Fencing Club sent its top three fencers to the Duel in the Desert in Las Vegas, Nev., earlier this month.
    The Duel in the Desert is one of the top epee events in the U.S. and attracts fencers from across the nation.
    In the Senior Men’s Epee event, Patrick Webb was Los Alamos’ top finisher, taking 29th out of 66 entrants.
    Webb was eliminated in the round of 32 by Eric Hansen, fencing coach at UCLA and the Los Angles International Fencing Centre, in a hard-fought bout that ended at 15-13.
    Hansen, one of the Nation’s top epeeists, has been a frequent member of the U.S. team competing in the World Cup Championships.
    For Webb, the finish at Las Vegas earned him a USFA D2012 ranking.
