  • Officials break ground on Smith's Marketplace concept

    A broad cross-section of government entities were represented along with high-ranking officials from Smith's and parent company Kroger, as others from Los Alamos gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday afternoon that was staged on a mound of dirt near the intersection of Knect and Trinity.

    The officials made their way up onto the mound following a round of speeches heralding the start of construction for the long-awaited project. Kroger and Smith's executives said the new Smith's Marketplace is going to be unique in relation to any other store among the holdings of the nation's largest retail grocer. 

    The 110,000 square-foot store is scheduled to open before Thanksgiving 2014.

  • Broncos, Bulldogs picked to top MW this year

     LAS VEGAS (AP) — Boise State and Fresno State are projected to finish on top of the two new football divisions of the Mountain West Conference this season.

    The Broncos are picked to finish first in the Mountain Division, while the Bulldogs are the favorites in the West Division among members of the media who cover the league's teams. It is the league's first season of divisional play.

    The two division leaders will meet in the inaugural Mountain West championship game, set for Dec. 7.

    The league also announced its preseason all-conference team on Monday as part of the Mountain West's annual media days in Las Vegas.

    Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr was named preseason offensive player of the year, while fellow Bulldog Derron Smith, a defensive back, earned defensive honors and New Mexico kick returner Chase Clayton was selected top special teams player.

    The Broncos are coming off an 11-2 season and were supposed to join the Big East this year. But the school backed out of those plans, opting instead to remain in the Mountain West Conference. Boise State beat Washington 28-26 last year in the Las Vegas Bowl.
