  • Wildlife officers set up cougar traps in LA

    Officers with the New Mexico Game and Fish Department are setting up snares in Los Alamos to trap a cougar they say has killed two dogs and attacked another in the last month.

    They're asking residents to be aware of the traps, which they say pose little or no danger to people or pets.

    It's unusual for cougars to stray from their rugged canyon habitat into residential areas, but department spokesman Dan Williams five cougar sighting have occurred within a one-mile area near Los Alamos County Airport.

    The department is asking residents to keep a close watch on children and pets at dusk, dawn and nighttime hours until the cougar is caught.

    The traps are being set up largely in gated canyon areas not open to hikers.

  • Decision delayed on Farmington plant

    SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico regulators are giving Public Service Co. of New Mexico more time to ink agreements with a mining company, delaying a decision on whether to approve a plan to close part of the San Juan Generating Station.
    The Public Regulation Commission voted 4-1 during its meeting Wednesday. Commissioner Valerie Espinoza voted against extending the deadline for PNM, suggesting the utility was trying to submit new evidence in hopes of getting a different outcome.
    Two units of the coal-fired power plant in northwest New Mexico would be closed under a settlement aimed at curbing haze-causing pollution in the Four Corners region.
    The utility, business groups and environmentalists disagree about the best way to fill the void left by the partial closure.
    , and concerns have been raised about the lack of a contract to supply coal to the plant.

  • LANL hosts DNA meeting

    This week in Santa Fe, Los Alamos National Laboratory is hosting a DNA sequence analysis and bioinformatics event, the 10th annual Sequencing, Finishing and Analysis in the Future (SFAF) workshop.
    More than 300 participants from the international scientific community will gather at La Fonda to hear about everything from keynote addresses on the research applications of sequencing data — such as “Evolution and Epidemiology of Anthrax through the Lens of Genome Analysis” — to technical talks that highlight specific strategies such as a comparison of using sequence data from one commercial machine versus another.
    “This meeting is more than just a science meeting where scientists share their discoveries and accomplishments,” said Chris Detter, who founded the conference with a committee of researchers from around the world. “From day one it was meant to be a super workshop that has evolved over the past 10 years to bring leaders in the genomics field together with vendors, applications specialists and especially young scientists to discuss how genome sequencing and analysis plays a pivotal role in health, environment and security. The primary focus is to foster communication and collaborations to better enable use of these rapidly evolving technologies.”
