  • Incentives spur spike in home sales, tax credits expire this month

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Home sales rose in March, reversing three months of declines, as government incentives drew in buyers and kicked off what's expected to be a strong spring selling season.

    Per New Mexico Activities Association regulations, teams were required to set their team tournament rosters by April 18.

  • Leadership Los Alamos earns an A plus

    If I were to assign a grade to my performance as a Leadership Los Alamos student, it might be a C. I have cut class twice and snuck out of class early. Plus my attitude has been slightly less than stellar. In fact, the night before the last session I engaged in a mental tantrum. I whined to myself that I had too much to do, the session started too early, it was going to be held in a location too far away.  

  • Something’s Cooking at the Spitfire Grill

    Once again my column this week finds me trying to learn more about Percy Talbott, the ex-convict who has decided to make Gilead her new home. I know I am not alone when I say that although Gilead is a wonderful town, it is not a place for criminals to start over.

    In this week’s edition, I speak with Shelby Thorpe, resident of Gilead and long-time friend of Hannah Ferguson, who hired Ms. Talbott to work at The Spitfire Grill, which Mrs. Ferguson owns.

  • Chorus to sing member’s work

    Sometimes what makes music special goes beyond how it sounds. For Coro de Cámara, the upcoming concert features a piece that holds a particular sentiment to the group.

    The concert, “Let the River Run,” which will be at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Kelly Hall at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, will include a work created by one of the chorus members, Joe Cox.

    The piece is titled, “I want Jesus to Walk with Me.” It will be included in the second half of the program with other spirituals. The first half is dedicated to folk songs.

  • Bank phone scam circulates town

    Residents of Los Alamos and surrounding areas are receiving automated calls to their cell phones claiming to be from their financial institution. These automated phone calls are a scam.

    The automated call indicates that your account has been suspended or compromised and then asks for the customer’s ATM or debit card number and PIN.

    The phone calls are NOT from a financial institution.

    You should never provide personal information or account numbers over the phone unless you originate the call and know to whom you are speaking.
