    All proceeds go to support two house building mission trips to Ciudad Juárez, Mexico this fall, one in October (House of Hope Women), one in November (Trinity Builders, co-ed team).
    The House of Hope and Trinity Builders house-building mission teams are sponsors for the fifth annual fundraising event.
    Just as last year, decorated tables, adorned with place settings and fresh flowers, will be the setting for the tea and homemade food items will be provided by team members and volunteers.
    Cups of tea will be served from “bottomless” teapots that will include black teas as well as a variety of herbal and flavored teas. Afternoon hats are encouraged and will certainly generate some lively conversation as friends chat and make new acquaintances at round tables of eight settings each.

  • Boston to step down from NMSU

    LAS CRUCES (AP) — New Mexico State has announced Athletics Director McKinley Boston will step down at the end of the year.
    The school said in a statement Wednesday that Boston’s contract would be extended until Dec. 31 and then a replacement will be named.
    The move came after NMSU President Garrey Carruthers finished a performance review of Boston, but declined to comment on the review.
    Boston has been the school’s athletic director since 2004. Under his tenure, New Mexico State joined the Western Athletic Conference in 2005. But the football program was left without a conference last season after the Western Athletic Conference opted to no longer sponsor the sport.
    The Aggies played independent schedule in 2013 but will compete as football-only members of the Sun Belt Conference this season.

  • 'Topper roster features 10 underclassmen this season

    As is often the case, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team will be the first to start the 2014 fall season at the high school.
    Los Alamos is chock full of new, young faces heading into this season, not the least of which is its new head coach.
    After leading the team for more than 20 years, longtime Hilltopper head coach Jiri Kubicek stepped down this past winter. Replacing Kubicek is AJ Herrera.
    Herrera coached the Hilltopper boys program for a brief time. Most recently he was the head coach of the Santa Fe Demon boys program.
    Last season, Santa Fe went 10-10 and had a chance to either qualify for a bid in the state Class 4A tournament or play spoiler for archrival Capital, but lost its season finale to the Jaguars, 5-0.
    The 2014 preseason with the Hilltoppers, Herrera said, is going about as well as could be expected.
    He said most of his players came into the preseason in good physical shape, which has allowed him to focus on development and working on plays as opposed to spending a lot of time on conditioning.
    Los Alamos opens its season on the road, taking on the Farmington Scorpions. That game is set for Saturday at noon in Farmington.

  • Two-vehicle accident sends two to hospital, snarls morning commute

    A two-vehicle accident at the intersection of N.M. 4 sent two people to the hospital and made a mess of the Thursday morning commute. Officials said the two people did not sustain life-threatening injuries. For those traveling from White Rock, in what was usually a 10-minute drive, it took 45 minutes as traffic was directed up the Main Hill. The Main Hill also had backups as commuters did their best to get to work. No other details were available at press time.

  • Former lab worker sentenced for Atomic Energy violations

     The Justice Department today announced that a former contract employee at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) was sentenced this morning for conspiring to violate the Atomic Energy Act by communicating classified nuclear weapons data to a person believed to be a Venezuelan government official, and making false statements to the FBI.

    Marjorie Roxby Mascheroni, 71, of Los Alamos, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge William P. Johnson to a year and a day in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release based on a guilty plea entered in June 2013.  Her husband, Pedro Leonardo Mascheroni, 79, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Argentina who is also a former LANL employee, also entered a guilty plea in June 2013, and is in federal custody pending his sentencing hearing.
