  • Fashion Maven: Clothes make the man

    After receiving numerous suggestions to write about guys’ fashion, I have decided to fulfill the requests.
    Fashion for men is as broad a subject as women’s fashion, so I have decided to narrow down this column to what a man should not do when he dresses himself in the morning. Ahem, guys: this might be a good time to listen up because I speak for a vast majority of ladies, here.

  • Baseball team scores 3 late to win at tourney

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team picked up a third-place finish at the Andres Arguello Memorial Tournament this weekend.
    Los Alamos scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning against Socorro (Texas) Saturday to win the tournament’s third-place game, 7-5. Los Alamos won two of three contests at the tournament, but fell 10-0 in the semifinal to host St. Pius X.
    The third-place finish was an accomplishment for the Hilltoppers, particularly the seniors, who had never placed better than fourth at the Arguello tournament.
    In Saturday’s game against Socorro, Hilltopper ace JD Weiss threw four hitless innings in a critical stretch to keep his team with Socorro.

  • Boys, girls track teams finish 2nd at APS

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls track and field teams grabbed solid second place finishes at Saturday’s Albuquerque Public Schools Kickoff Meet.

    The Hilltopper girls were just nipped by the Class 5A Volcano Vista Hawks, a team that could potentially vie for the big schools championship. The Hilltoppers rolled up 98 points, including some big performances by its two stars, Laura Wendelberger and Chase Ealey.

    On the boys side, Los Alamos finished with a healthy total of 89 points, again second to Volcano Vista. David Stroud and Chris Ryan both won events Saturday, while Los Alamos had a host of individual second place finishes.

  • New hub for Helitack units

    Plans for a new fire center in Los Alamos are underway.

    That’s according to Forest Service Regional Aviation Officer Bob Skeen.

    The new $2.5 million Park Service project at Tech Area 49 off of N.M. 4 will be home to a new Jemez Mountain Emergency Fire Center as part of an interagency response initiative.

    Skeen said the Park Service is including the Santa Fe Helitack program – another interagency initiative between the Forest Service, Park Service and federal Energy Department ­— at the new facility that will include office space for crewmembers. Each agency contributes a “fair share” of resources to the helitack program.

    Helitack units are resources for attacking wildfires aerially.

  • An inside look at the Lizard King

    “Is everybody In? The Ceremony is about to begin.” – Jim Morrison.
    During the turbulent 1960s, which could be considered a modern-times Renaissance, many people tried to change the world and change American conscience. Despite several efforts, only one man succeeded. Not only did he change Americans, but he turned the country upside down. The youth of America would have followed him to hell and back and done it with a smile on their faces. His Name was The Lizard King aka Jim Morrison.
