  • ´Toppers are 14th at Shootout this week

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team had a tough draw to start off its 2012-13 season, but came through relatively well.
    Los Alamos finished 14th out of 27 teams in the very difficult Southwest Shootout Duals competition this weekend. The Southwest Shootout, which attracts teams from all around the region, is hosted by Rio Rancho High School.
    Among those at the tournament were teams from Colorado, Oklahoma Texas and as far away as Kansas. The winner of the Southwest Shootout hadn’t been determined as of press time.
    For Los Alamos, it finished fourth in its pool Friday, topping Taos and Rio Rancho Cleveland’s junior varsity team, but losing to Coronado, Colo., Plainview, Okla., and Albuquerque’s Atrisco Heritage.
    “We banged pretty good (Friday), but (Saturday), it was kind of a rough outing,” Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said. “We didn’t quite go as far as we wanted to.”
    Saturday’s tournament was the season opener for the Hilltoppers, who clinched their first district title in nearly two decades last year and who have several returners back for this season.

  • Manziel is first freshman Heisman Trophy winner


    NEW YORK (AP) — Johnny Football just got himself a way cooler nickname: Johnny Heisman.

    Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, taking college football's top individual prize Saturday night after a record-breaking debut.

    Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o finished a distant second and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein was third in the voting. In a unique Heisman race, with two nontraditional candidates, Manziel broke through the class barrier and kept Te'o from becoming the first purely defensive player to win the award.

    Manziel drew 474 first-place votes and 2,029 points from the panel of media members and former winners.

    "I have been dreaming about this since I was a kid," he said during his acceptance speech after hugging his mom, dad and kid sister.

  • Hanukkah festivities begin with candle lighting

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Jews around the world ushered in the eight-day Hanukkah festival Saturday evening, lighting the first candles of ceremonial lamps that symbolize triumph over oppression.

    In Israel, families gathered after sundown for the lighting, eating traditional snacks of potato pancakes and doughnuts and exchanging gifts.

    Local officials lit candles set up in public places, while families displayed the nine-candle lamps, called menorahs, in their windows or in special windproof glass boxes outside.

    Hanukkah, also known as the festival of lights, commemorates the Jewish uprising in the second century B.C. against the Greek-Syrian kingdom, which had tried to impose its culture on Jews and adorn the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem with statues of Greek gods.

    The holiday lasts eight days because according to tradition, when the Jews rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem, a single vial of oil, enough for one day, burned miraculously for eight.
