  • A small group is capable of doing big things

    “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead

    This week, we look at asset nine, Service to Others. I know it sounds rather like a parent favoring one child over another, but asset-wise, this one is near the top of the list for me.

  • L.A. still a ‘low crime’ community

    Los Alamos is not without crime, according to Police Chief Wayne Torpy.

    “I prefer to say that we have a low crime community,” he said in his annual report Tuesday night to the county council.

    There were 499 prisoners in 2009 or a total of 4,519 prisoner days, he pointed out. Another way to look at it is if the 499 prisoners each spent about 10 days in jail, that would be a little more than 4,500 prisoner days.

  • Brisk Q4 economic growth rate not expected to be sustained

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The economy rocketed ahead at a 5.9 percent pace in the final quarter of 2009, stronger than initially estimated. But the growth spurt isn't expected to carry over into this year.

    The fresh reading on the nation's economic standing, released by the Commerce Department on Friday, was better than the government's initial estimate a month ago of 5.7 percent growth. It would mark the strongest showing in six years.

    Even so, it didn't change the expectation of much slower economic activity in the current January-to-March quarter.

    After facing off in a pair of hard-fought, close contests that went down to the waning seconds, many people probably expected more of the same between Los Alamos and Capital Thursday night.

    Los Alamos advanced to tonight’s 2AAAA tournament championship game after soundly beating the Taos Tigers Thursday night in their semifinal contest. Los Alamos never trailed Thursday, winning convincingly at Griffith Gymnasium 75-52.

    Purim, the Jewish holiday that will be held on Sunday, is no solemn occasion. In fact, cranking up the noise in celebration is encouraged.

    During the celebration, a reading of the Book of Esther is conducted.

    With a special legislative session looming Monday, the debate over spending cuts and tax increases in the Legislature has turned into a fight over revenue projections with the executive branch.
