  • LA girls track takes third at APS

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track team finished in third place at Saturday’s Albuquerque Public Schools Invitational meet.
    The Hilltopper girls placed third at APS, behind Cleveland and La Cueva both Class 5A schools. The Hilltoppers finished with 74 points, edging out Eldorado for third place by a single point.
    Albuquerque Academy, the only other competing 4A school, finished with just 11 points in the nine-team meet.
    Freshman Chelsea Chalacombe picked up her first state meet qualifying mark of the season in the shot put with her throw of 33 feet, 9 inches. Also making the cut Saturday was Miranda Barraza in the 3,200 meters, posting a time of 12:23.72.

  • LA splits pair of district games

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball dropped the nightcap of its District 2-4A doubleheader Saturday against the Española Valley Sundevils after winning the opener at Bomber Field.
    The Sundevils bounced back from a first-game loss to top the Hilltoppers 6-5 and pick up the split. The Hilltoppers handily won the first game 8-1.
    Los Alamos ace JD Weiss picked up the complete game victory in the opener, allowing just one run in the top of the first and holding the Sundevils scoreless the rest of the way.
    Despite the game two loss, the Hilltoppers (12-6 overall, 4-1 in 2-4A) still hold a one-game edge over the Sundevils in the district race.
    The two teams are scheduled to play again April 18 in the valley.

  • PNM turns profitable

    Utilities have their moments.
    The Socorro Electric Co-op is working through several years of disputes and lawsuits that aren’t quite up to the low comedy standards of city officials in Santa Teresa and Columbus.
    I remember former PNM Resources Chairman Jeff Sterba doing his best Al Gore imitation at annual meetings a few years ago. Sterba’s passion for the absolute inevitability of ugly results from global warming was something to behold. Compact fluorescent light bulbs became an annual meeting souvenir.

  • A possible cure for corruption?

    Is New Mexico the most corrupt state in the nation? You’ve seen the news. It looks pretty bad. Many national organizations are interested about corruption in the states.
     On most of their rankings, New Mexico falls somewhere in the middle. The last one I saw ranked us 19th. Political corruption we hear about most often seems to occur in Illinois, New Jersey and Louisiana. But those states donít rank near the top of the corruption scale either.
     It is often little, out-of-the-way states like North Dakota or Vermont that head the corruption list. How can that be? We never hear about it.
