  • Chargers spoil Hilltopper Homecoming

    Homecoming night wasn’t as festive as the Los Alamos Hilltopper football  team hoped it would be.

    The visiting Albuquerque Academy Chargers wasted no time jumping on the Hilltoppers Friday night at Sullivan Field. The Chargers led 14-0 after just one quarter and cruised to a 37-6 win.

    The loss in the 2009 Homecoming contest was the third-straight drubbing taken by Los Alamos, as it prepares for its District 2AAAA opener this week against Taos.

  • Point of View: A night in the press box

    The Homecoming Football game and its accompanying events Friday began with a color guard provided by the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, displaying the American, New Mexican, Navy and Marine Corps flags. As spectators started to trickle in on this cold October night, they found the surrounding trees in high school spirit with vibrant green and gold leaves.

    We were lucky to have Gene Mortensen, “the voice of KRSN,” join us once again on this crisp night for the first time after heart surgery.

  • More than $1 billion at risk

    New Mexico Auditor Hector Balderas testified before the Legislative Finance Committee that 90 governmental entities have been designated as “at risk” for their failure to submit required annual and compliance audits to the Office of the State Auditor (OSA).

  • A lament for Chicago

    The old razzle-dazzle just didn’t work this time.

    Chicago, not only lost its bid for the 2016 Summer Games, it was crushed.

    It seemed obvious going in that Rio would win, but who would have thought Chicago would be the first one out?

    A solid second place, but the city didn’t deserve to be over and out in a flash.

    I enjoyed a brief vacation in Chicago a couple of weeks ago and I’m here to tell you I thought it was a wonderful place.

    While it was not my first visit, I had one of the best big-city experiences in my life.

  • Surprise and disappointment not a way to develop land

    It was not surprising that Los Alamos County Council decided this week to discontinue their exclusive arrangement with the Boyer Company of Salt Lake City for the development of a retail center at Trinity Place.

    What was surprising is how little we still know about why the arrangement failed.

    In its determination at long last to move forward, the council swept many pieces of the puzzle off the table.

    Students will showcase traditional Kathak, a Northern Indian dance and Bharathatyan, a Southern Indian dance.
