    A public hearing on these projects will be at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Fuller Lodge’s Pajarito Room.
    Just as some people need feedback on design choices for a home improvement project, the Public Works Department is asking the community to weigh in on landscaping, plants, lighting and other amenities.

  • Early voter turnout heavier than primary

    If the early and absentee vote count is any indication, turnout for today’s general election should bring out the crowds.
    “Voting in this election is definitely heavier than in the June primary,’ said Elections Manager Gloria Maestas of Los Alamos County this morning. “Through Saturday, we received 2,031 ballots cast at Mesa Public Library, 1,122 ballots cast here in the County Clerk’s Office and we mailed out 665 absentee ballots.”

  • AP roundup: Key statewide races

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico is making history in the general election as voters are poised to elect the state's first female governor.

    Republican Susana Martinez and Democrat Diane Denish waged a bare-knuckled campaign in which they pummeled one other with attack ads for months.

    Martinez, district attorney in Dona Ana County since 1997, became the nation's first Hispanic woman nominated for governor when she won a five-way primary in June.

  • Giants give City by the Bay its long-awaited title

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Buster Posey caught the final strike, started to rush the mound, then stopped and turned toward the dugout.

    The rookie catcher wasn't quite sure what to do or where to go. Hard to blame him, either. It's not as if the San Francisco Giants win the World Series every day.

  • Early voting draws more than 200K in NM

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — With Election Day looming, more than 200,000 New Mexicans already have cast ballots in the general election.

    Polls will be open Tuesday from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

  • Sandia labs researchers awarded federal grants

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science has awarded grants totaling $2.6 million to four Sandia National Laboratories researchers for computational research.

    Their proposals would help create an exascale computer — one that would be 1,000 times faster than the fastest now available.

    Sandia says faster technology would be useful in computation-intensive areas such as basic research, engineering, earth science, biology, materials science, energy issues and national security.

  • US issues mail advisory, tightens cargo scrutiny

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. and allied governments tightened their scrutiny of air cargo and shipped packages Monday as investigators tried to trace bomb parts and scanned for more mail bombs possibly sent from Yemen.

    An official United Arab Emirates security source said authorities are tracing the serial numbers of a mobile phone circuit board and computer printer used in a mail bomb sent from Yemen and found in Dubai last week.

  • Football: LA wins big over Capital but loses out on 2-4A title

    While the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team closed its season out on a high note Friday, it wasn’t as high of a note as it was hoping for.
    In its season finale Friday night at Sullivan Field, the Hilltoppers blasted the Capital Jaguars 47-14. The Hilltoppers scored 40 points in the first half of the District 2AAAA contest and liberally shuffled in its sub-varsity call-ups for the bulk of the second half to earn the victory.
