  • Toppers come from behind to win

    SANTA FE — After one half of play, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team was reeling.
    In the second half, however, the Hilltoppers found their feet and, in doing so, picked up a much-needed District 2-4A win.
    After managing just 13 points in the first half Tuesday night against the Santa Fe Demons, Los Alamos took a control of the contest in the third quarter, holding Santa Fe without a field goal for an 8-minute stretch to earn a 47-41 come-from-behind win at Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium.

  • Mo. teen gets life with possible parole in killing

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A central Missouri teenager who confessed to strangling, cutting and stabbing a 9-year-old girl because she wanted to know how it felt to kill someone was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison with the possibility of parole.

    Alyssa Bustamante, 18, pleaded guilty in January to second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the October 2009 slaying of Elizabeth Olten in St. Martins, a small rural town west of Jefferson City.

    The judge also ordered the teen to serve a consecutive 30-year term in the armed criminal action charge.

  • Congress tries to give president line-item veto

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-led House is trying Wednesday to give President Barack Obama the line-item veto, a constitutionally questionable power over the purse that has been sought by both Republican and Democratic presidents.

    The legislation, expected to pass, allows the president to pick out specific items in spending bills for elimination. Currently, the president must sign or veto spending bills in their entirety.

    The president's choices for removal would then have to be approved by Congress.

  • Council approves N.M. 502/Trinity Drive design

    In a 6-1 vote, the Los Alamos County Council approved motion option 1 out of five possible options for a redesign of N.M. 502/Trinity Drive between Knecht and Airport Road.

    Councilor Vincent Chiravalle voted against the motion in support of option 4, a four-lane design with a stop light at the Central/4th Street intersection, similar to a 2007 New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) proposal.

    More than 30 of the 48 residents who spoke during public comment were clearly in support of the motion, which was also the option supported by the Transportation Board.

    Motion option 1 in its entirety reads:

  • Triple Win: Santorum Takes MN, MO, CO

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Rick Santorum is looking to capitalize on a string of stunning victories that snapped his four-state losing streak and raised new questions about front-runner Mitt Romney's clout with conservatives.

    Romney shrugged off his poor showing, but his losses Tuesday in Missouri, Minnesota and Colorado laid bare his stubborn weakness just when it looked as if his party was beginning to embrace him. Bringing up the rear of the Santorum surge: Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker who mostly skipped the contests and finished at or near the back of the pack in all three states.
