    “If you could name the ‘Top Ten’ things in the Bible for which we should give thanks, what would they be?” — Miriam

    My list will likely be different from that of someone else asked the same question, but I am thankful for the following “Top Ten” Bible truths:
    God exists. He is infinite yet personal, holy yet close, just yet gracious. (Gen. 1; Ps. 66; 100; Isa. 6:1-8; Rom. 9:14-16; I Cor. 2).

  • Control of Internet at issue involving net neutrality

    In an economy with too few jobs to offer displaced workers, some have taken a deep breath and started a home business. Others are employed by companies with home-based worker programs.
    These folks are the fastest growing segment of the economy, and they don’t get enough respect, says Community Economics Lab, a consulting firm that has a pilot program in Los Lunas. Its goal is to find ways to support home-based workers.

  • Healthy Unhappy Meals

    Every time I think society has hit rock bottom, someone proves me wrong.  
    Last month it was the law makers of San Francisco.  They proposed a city ordinance that would force McDonald’s restaurants to add fruit and vegetables in their Happy Meals boxes.  
    The ordinance focuses on McDonald’s strategy of including toys in the meal boxes, which the city claims is an unfair inducement for children to eat unhealthy food.

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Officials with the New Mexico Department of Homeland Security are urging travelers to prepare for extremely cold temperatures during the Thanksgiving holiday.

  • Girls basketball: 'Toppers open season at home Friday

    The 2010-11 version of the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team will no doubt be a rebuilding project.
    The big question going into the season is how big of a project will it be?
    The Hilltoppers and their largely new-look roster will premier at home Friday night. They will take on the always-tough Pojoaque Elks at 7 p.m.
    Los Alamos has just three returning players from last season, all three of them reserves, as well as four underclassmen on its opening day roster.

  • Americans still remember

    Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. One of the reasons is that Americans still remember why we celebrate it.
    Thanksgiving isn’t just another holiday, to which we give not one thought other than that it is a day off work.
    Nearly all of us truly remember to give thanks and truly celebrate the holiday.
    Unlike Christmas, there is no stress around giving and receiving presents. The purpose of celebrating Thanksgiving is very simple and very easy to observe.
