  • Who hid the deficit?

    What did I tell you? My column written for Oct. 4, announced a $450 million budget deficit. At the time, the Legislature was predicting a $260 million deficit.
    No, I wasn’t part of Gov. Bill Richardson’s “hide the ball” conspiracy that Gov.-Elect Susana Martinez alleges.
    My not-so-secret information came from watching the ebb and flow of  deficit projections during the past two years.
    Even one year ago, Martinez was still chasing drug cartels and her advisers were still back in Washington, D.C. So how were they to know?

  • Richard Branson on space travel

    UPHAM — British billionaire and Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson could see the gently curving roof line and unfinished steel shell of Spaceport America rising from the desert as his jet banked overhead.
    It’s in this remote part of southern New Mexico, where Branson’s dream of reaching space may soon come to fruition.
    Branson, the head of Virgin Group, which counts airlines, entertainment and mobile communications among its many businesses, visited recently for a tour of the spaceport and the dedication of its nearly two-mile-long runway.

  • LAPS board ponders HQ options

    A lot can happen in a year. Last year, the Los Alamos Public Schools administration offices were moved into their current home at 2075 Trinity Drive, after staff vacated the buildings across from the Mari-Mac Shopping Center in preparation for demolition to make way for the Trinity Revitalization Development project.
    Not only has the Trinity project taken some twists and turns in that time, but now the school board isn’t so sure that they want to make the building owned by Elmo CdeBaca their permanent home.

  • New system conserves water

    A waste treatment plant is rarely a popular topic. After all, it’s not a pretty sight – from the gurgling, bubbling aeration basins to the slowly shifting clarifiers.
    It’s a dirty business, but Los Alamos Wastewater Treatment Plant will soon feature an environmentally clean component through its new wash water system.
    The wash water system will have the capability to recycle water and use the treated water for operations at the plant, said Clay Moseley,
    Department of Public Utilities associated engineer and GIS services.
