  • Alleged burglar nabbed

    The long arm of the Los Alamos Police Department recently went all the way to Madisonville, Texas, to get a burglary suspect.
    In this case, that man happened to be suspect Timber Morrow. Police are accusing Morrow of burglarizing the “Smart House” in 2013.
    The Smart House, located at 1925 Trinity Drive, is a testing ground for new energy distribution technology. It’s a collaboration between the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology and Development Organization.
    According to an earlier story that appeared in the Los Alamos Monitor, the house includes two sources of alternative power and is hooked into the LANL’s and NEDO’s larger, experimental “Smart Grid” of photovoltaic cells that is currently supplying approximately 1 megawatt of power to Los Alamos.
    According to that story, “features of the house include passive solar design, its own PV array and storage battery to augment power from the grid, a ‘smart’ meter to indicate usage and power supply available in real time and smart appliances as well as an HVAC system that responds to the amount of power available. Computer systems that allow residents to monitor and control usage are being demonstrated and tested by Kyocera, NEC and Sharp.”

  • Bible Answers: Sin is a part of the human condition

    “From where does sin come and how does it affect us?”

  • Man uses mentoring as way of giving back

    When Chris McLaughlin was 5 years old, he underwent surgery to address partial hearing loss from an ear infection and resultant scar-tissue tumors.
    When he was 9, he lost most of his hearing after another surgery. Chris had been a “cool” kid with lots of friends and involved in sports, but when he showed up at school wearing hearing aids that in the technology-of-the-day resembled large music headphones, he felt different and was treated differently. Sports weren’t fun wearing a large headset with a speaker box, and he couldn’t hear without it. At first kids thought he was a rebel for wearing “music headphones” in school. Chris quickly adopted that persona. And then he began isolating himself.
    When Chris was 11, his father passed away. His mother mourned alone in her room and shortly afterward turned her attention to dating. Chris coped with his father’s loss alone. And still dealing with being different, he took to keeping a book in his hand at school, or went to the library so that he didn’t have to socialize.

  • Crawlix, nittles and quimps, oh my...

    One of my favorite scenes in “Doc Hollywood” is when Dr. Benjamin Stone (Michael J. Fox) gets frustrated and used the f-word. The deputy says, “Watch your language, Doc! You’re in the buckle of the Bible belt here. Try saying fudge or something.”
    Stone replies, “Fiddlesticks too strong?”
    Now, what does define a word as being “too strong” of a curse? If you stub your toe in Mississippi and scream “Fudge!” would anyone within earshot not know what you’re really saying?
    If you say one thing and mean another, you really just outsourcing the vulgarity. Like yelling “Sugar!” when you’re late for work and as you are getting into your car, you see that you have a flat tire.
    People use “sugar” as a term of endearment to their sweetheart. So how do you really know what your honey is saying to you when he calls you that?
    Holy fudge! Can you believe that sugar? What a dagnabbit snickerdoodle!
    Let’s face it, profanity is engrained in our culture. That’s a really sugary thought when you think about it.
    Euphemisms aside, one of the worst offenders of potty-mouth syndrome is the movie industry. Even films geared towards children contain “a little vulgarity.”

  • LA team in 9-10 finals

    The Los Alamos green 9-10 All-Star baseball team picked up a crushing victory Thursday night to advance to the District 1 championship.

    Los Alamos, the No. 1 seed, blasted second-seeded Santa Fe Metro 20-1 Thursday in Española.
    The other Los Alamos entry into the district tournament didn’t fare as well, however. Los Alamos’ gold team was knocked out of the tournament by Española’s red team — Española also has two entries into the District 1 bracket.
    For the Los Alamos greens, they will play Saturday at 10 a.m. against the winner of tonight’s elimination round contest between Española red and Metro.
    Saturday’s game will be played at the Lucero Center in Española.
    Los Alamos can clinch the district title and a berth at next week’s state tournament with a win either Saturday or Sunday.
     

  • LeBron heading back to Cleveland

     

    CLEVELAND (AP) — If LeBron James was going to win another NBA title, heal broken hearts and continue building his legacy, he knew there was only one place to go.

    To Ohio. Home.

    Four years after he left for Miami, a widely criticized departure that damaged his image and crushed a long-suffering city's championship hopes, James is coming back to play for the Cavaliers to try and end Cleveland's half-century title drought. He's returning to his basketball roots, to the people who know him best to make good on a promise.
