  • Fuller Lodge to be filled with romance

    The idea for this month’s Brown Bag originally was a Valentines’ Day themed concert but the schedule pushed the concert to January.

    The Brown Bag concert, titled “Meditation and Remembrance of Women’s Loves and Lives,” is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at Fuller Lodge.

  • Park service turns gaze on Valles Caldera

    The Valles Caldera National Preserve’s eligibility to become a national park has been enhanced in recent years by several important changes, according to an updated report prepared for New Mexico’s U.S. Senators Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall.

    Ironically, two of those changes have been introduced by the Valles Caldera Trust, the preserve’s governing body. The Trust would likely be dissolved should the preserve become a part of the park system, rather than the independently chartered federal corporation that it is now.

  • Lecture to reveal the color in New Mexico’s history

    History is not written in stone. There are many different perspectives and views on the story of how we got to where we are today. And the more that is discovered about the past, the more elaborate the story becomes.

  • Swimming and diving: LA girls win big at home Saturday

    During the holidays, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls swim teams had a little bit of time off.

    That time off, however, was completely by happenstance. The pool was closed for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

    Despite being without a competitive meet for three weeks and despite a grueling workout scheduled in between, both teams had productive showings at Saturday’s Los Alamos Invitational.

  • Wrestling: LA drops 5 duals at Moriarty Invite

    It was a mixed bag for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team Saturday at the Moriarty Invitational.

    While Los Alamos had some solid performances at the multi-team dual meet, hosted by Moriarty’s Pintos, those were coupled with some rough outings against a strong field.

    “It was tough,” Los Alamos first-year coach Bob Geyer said. “Every time there was pretty good. We got a few wins, but we didn’t wrestle that great.”

  • Girls basketball: Saturday’s game nixed by blackout

    It was a low-watt event Saturday afternoon at Griffith Gymnasium. Literally.

    Saturday’s scheduled girls basketball game between the Los Alamos Hilltoppers and the St. Pius X Sartans was nixed due to a blackout at Griffith Gymnasium. The power outage reportedly affected several different spots around Los Alamos County.

    The visiting Sartans, a longtime rival of the Hilltoppers hung around for 90 minutes after the game’s scheduled start time, but power had not been restored other than a brief flicker which lasted less than a second.
