  • GOP candidates jostle with the ethics issues

    SANTA FE — This column has often declared that the Grand Old Party is not dead in New Mexico or nationally. Although Republicans had some major defeats in 2006 and 2008, reports of their demise have been greatly exaggerated.

    Victories back East in off-year elections last November gave the national party reason for hope. And in New Mexico, a surprise October mayoral win in Albuquerque has given the state party a dose of adrenalin.

    NEW YORK (AP) — A forecast of future economic activity jumped 1.1 percent in December, a private research group said Thursday, suggesting that economic growth could pick up this spring.

    The increase in the Conference Board's index of leading economic indicators was larger than the 0.7 percent rise that economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters had expected.

    The gauge had risen a revised 1 percent in November — it was initially reported as a 0.7 percent increase— and has been up for nine consecutive months.

  • Six Monkeys: Mother instincts kick in up in the air

    Friday morning, I woke up to a sunny Florida day, the golf course sparkling outside my in-laws’ patio. Friday evening, I was back in Los Alamos, finally, after one of the most stressful periods of waiting I’ve ever experienced.

    I decided to ignore it.

  • Support the LAHS choirs

    In tough economic times, everyone feels the pinch, and schools are certainly not immune to the sharp squeeze in funds.

    Therefore, in response to the changes in funding rules for high school activities, which have made it more expensive to travel and participate in festivals and competitions, the four choirs at Los Alamos High School and the LAHS Choir Booster Club are rolling up their sleeves and exerting some fundraising prowess.

    The Winter WaffleFest will be held from 8 -10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Masonic Temple.
