  • A jewel of a memoir

    If and when a theatrical movie is made of George Cowan’s life, it will surely borrow heavily from his just published memoir, “Manhattan Project to the Santa Fe Institute.”

    On one hand, it could be a Woody Allen comedy.

  • Swimming and diving: Topper girls place second at state championship meet

    ALBUQUERQUE — A very good point total for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls swim team wasn’t quite good enough Saturday.

    Los Alamos finished with 268 points at the 2009-10 state swimming championship meet Saturday, a solid score but not enough to overcome the top swimming program in state history.

  • Wrestling: Toppers struggle at state tourney

    RIO RANCHO — After a lean first round Friday, much of the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team was able to make up for it in the second round.

    Los Alamos took six wrestlers to the Class AAAA state championship tournament — seven Hilltoppers qualified to take part but heavyweight Taylor Morrison was a last-minute scratch – held at the Santa Ana Star Center this weekend. Los Alamos didn’t get anyone through to Saturday, however, with all five remaining wrestlers heading into Friday’s final round being eliminated.

  • Boys basketball: LA tops Capital Saturday, but Kirk suffers an elbow injury

    It took more than a full game of basketball and nothing has yet been determined, including the status of a star player.

    The Los Alamos Hilltoppers posted an improbable comeback at home Saturday night against the Capital Jaguars in a big boys District 2AAAA basketball game. With just 6.2 seconds remaining, Hilltopper center Alex Kirk drilled three straight free throws to tie the contest and force overtime.

    In overtime, Los Alamos outscored Capital 8-4 to win 62-58.

  • Girls basketball: LA tops Capital to force playoff game

    Eight games wasn’t enough to decide the regular season district champ, so the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team and its counterpart from Española Valley will play a ninth.

    Los Alamos held up its end of the bargain in forcing a 1-game playoff Friday night against Española Valley’s Sundevils with its victory over the Capital Jaguars.

    The Jaguars gave the Hilltoppers problems throughout Friday night’s first half, but the Hilltoppers made good adjustments during the break and started to pull away in the third quarter.

  • ALERT: Los Alamos Police issue magazine scam warning

    The Los Alamos Police Department is advising residents of Los Alamos and White Rock to beware of a couple of young men selling magazine subscriptions door-to-door.

    The young men are allegedly offering magazine subscriptions from Atlantic Circulation.

    Residents have given money to the men and received a receipt but when they later went online to check out the company, they told police it appears to be a scam and said the Web site is riddled with consumer complaints.

    Report illegal activity to police at 662-8222.

     

  • A classic ballet to grace the stage

    Enter a world filled with fairies, courtiers, a king and queen, a handsome prince, and — of course — Princess Aurora this weekend when New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company (NMDT-PC) presents “The Sleeping Beauty.”

  • Analysis: Democratic split complicates budget work

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — The political will to compromise and make unpopular votes was a missing ingredient as the New Mexico Legislature worked for 30 days but failed to agree on a balanced budget to finance schools and government programs next year.

    The two Democratic-led chambers were far apart throughout the session on tax and budget issues. And those differences will remain when the Legislature convenes Wednesday for a special session to again try to pass a budget.

  • Council doubles up

    The Los Alamos County Council will consider an ordinance terminating an economic development agreement with Elemetric Instruments as its first order of business at 7 p.m. Tuesday, when it meets in the Community Building.

Also, Fire Chief Doug Tucker will lead a discussion about a request for approval of a Joint Powers Agreement for wildland fire protection and suppression with the New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department Forestry Division.
