  • Penalizing dummies: A new revenue resource

       There oughta be a law…

        For all their convenience, there’s something about cell phones that brings out the stupidity in some people. Like the guy talking on his cell phone who rode his bike directly into the path of my car and came close to becoming a hood ornament.

    Or the texting teenager who swerved into my lane on a busy street.

  • A musical potpourri to be featured at LACW concert

    The Los Alamos Community Winds ensemble is offering a musical mixture during its upcoming concert. The audience’s ears will immediately pick up tried-and-true pieces such as Igor Stravinsky’s score for the ballet, “The Firebird,” and Tchaikowsky’s 1812 Overture. But other works such as March to the Scaffold from “Symphonie Fantastique” and Emperata Overture may offer a new listening experience to attendees.

  • Traverse the Northern Cascades

    Join the Los Alamos Mountaineers at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Fuller Lodge to hear Lynn Ensslin and Dennis Brandt share their adventures on the Ptarmigan Traverse in the Northern Cascades.

    According to many Washington State alpinists, the Ptarmigan Traverse is the classic alpine traverse in Washington.

    It is unique in that it requires a week-long commitment on an off-trail route, which weaves its way between the glaciated peaks of the North Cascades. It is a route that one should try only if they have climbing and glacier experience.

  • Hilltopper wrestling falls to last place in district

    It was not the day the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team was hoping to have.

    Los Alamos hosted the District 2AAAA championship tournament Saturday at Auxiliary Gym. Los Alamos, instead of making a push for a runner-up spot in 2AAAA, was relegated to last place among the five district teams Saturday.

  • LA finishes season strong at district

    Josh Wilcox came through when he needed to Friday and Saturday, earning a final score of 288.50, which put him in the state meet.

    Los Alamos, heading into this weekend’s meet, had already qualified four girls divers. Wilcox, the team’s lone boy diver, was within range of qualifying himself with a good showing during Saturday’s final three dives.

    Wilcox got 5s across the board with his second dive of Friday’s preliminaries, an inward 1-1/2 somersault tuck with a 2.2 degree of difficulty, one of the tougher dives he attempted in the meet.
