    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — None of the tickets sold for the Powerball game Saturday evening matched all six numbers drawn, which were:

    Powerball: 34

    (twenty-two, thirty-two, thirty-seven, forty-four, fifty; Powerball: thirty-four)

  • Teachers, friends remember teen killed in car accident

    The last time classmate Maya Martinez saw her friend Nikolas Rian Ventura-Arencón, was Tuesday on a double-date with her boyfriend, Ventura-Arencón and his girlfriend, Divine Fellers, when they went to see the “Breaking Dawn” movie.

    The next day, Ventura-Arencón died in a head-on collision on N.M. 4. He was the only fatality in the two-car accident, which injured three other people, including his mother and Fellers. As of Friday, Fellers remained hospitalized in stable condition at UNM Hospital in Albuquerque.

    “He was always there for his friends, and he would never say anything bad about anybody,” Martinez said at a Friday memorial for her late friend. The memorial was at the “The Rock” in White Rock, on the corner of Rover Boulevard and N.M. 4. Friends, teachers, parents and even people who didn’t even know him too well, gathered to pay their respects and to perhaps write something on the Rock, now a makeshift memorial.

    An obituary posted by a local funeral home describes Ventura-Arencón as a Denver Broncos football fan who played all sports. He enjoyed skateboarding, wake-boarding, snowboarding, riding motorcycles, fishing and camping. Ventura-Arencón was a member of Los Alamos High School NJROTC and especially loved shooting and drill competitions.
