  • LA offense comes up big in 2-4A win

    The last thing the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team wants to do this District 2-4A season is mess around with any of its opponents.
    There was certainly no messing around Saturday.
    Los Alamos scored twice in the first 10 minutes of its home contest and controlled the ball most of the way against Santa Fe.
    Ryan Maestas picked up a hat trick early in the second half and Cooper Christensen added a goal and three assists as the Hilltoppers rolled to a 6-1 victory at Sullivan Field.
    The win was the second in as many outings for the Hilltoppers in 2-4A play.
    This season, Los Alamos (8-5) is gunning to reclaim the district title it lost to the Capital Jaguars in 2011, a team they will play this weekend.
    However,  Los Alamos head coach Evan Gartz said at the beginning of the season that the Demons weren’t going to be a pushover, either.
    But the Hilltoppers were able to feed off their hot start, scoring in the fourth, seventh and 19th minutes.
    Maestas scored two of the three early goals, sandwiching Henry Steinkamp’s rip from the top of the penalty box for the second score of the contest.
    Following the win, Maestas said the Hilltoppers were primed and ready to go long before Saturday’s 11 a.m. start time.

    Illumination

    Across the endless, flat land sunken in the dark,

    the highway is a string of fairy lights,

    the moon is your lonely reflection.

    The sheet of paper I drive on is soaked in black ink.

    The highway is a string of fairy lights.
    Flat mountains, flat land make eerie outlines.

    The sheet of paper I drive on is still soaked in black ink.

    And the fog is thick.

    Flat mountains, flat land make eerie outlines.

    Your tendrils of brilliance begin to tickle the nearly impenetrable quiet.

    And the fog is thick.
    Coyote howls, and bear bares his teeth in an almighty grin.

    Your tendrils of brilliance begin to tickle the nearly impenetrable quiet.

    The rock is a chameleon, from black to orange.

    Coyote howls, and bear bares his teeth in an almighty grin.

    Sunrise. How I long for you, sunrise.

    The rock is a chameleon, from black to orange,

    across the endless, flat land sunken in the dark.

    Sunrise. How I long for you, sunrise.

    The moon is your lonely reflection.

  • Fashion Maven: My passion for trashion

    As soon as I read about a trash fashion workshop at Fuller Lodge directed by designer Nancy Judd, I knew that this opportunity was one I could not miss out on. I found out that there would be a Trashion Show in Los Alamos, where I could model my design, so I signed myself up immediately and went to the workshop bursting with ideas.
    Judd’s workshop was fantastic. An internationally renowned trashion designer, Judd creates clothing from recycled or recyclable materials to raise awareness about the fact that many recyclable products are going to waste.
    She showed us pictures of some of her work, which included a gown made of more than 2,000 pieces of glass, a dress made from plastic bags and a bag adorned with nails. Judd has also done commissions for Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola, and Target.
    All the participants in the workshop shared their ideas for their designs and afterward, the room was charged with feelings of creativity. We soon got to work, and I began to construct my dress, which I had sketched out the day before.
    By the end of the workshop, I had finished about half of the construction of the bodice and the detail on the shoulders.
    In the next three weeks, I spent my free time designing for the fashion show.

  • Belen wins big vs. LA Friday

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team struggled to slow down the Belen Eagles in the first half of Friday’s home football game.

    The Eagles rolled up 269 yards total offense in the first half and scored two long touchdowns early to drop the Hilltoppers 46-15 at Sullivan Field.

    The Hilltoppers fell behind early, going down 19-0 just one play into the second quarter. They would bounce back in the second half with a pair of touchdowns, but would never get back into the ballgame.

    See more information on Friday’s game in Sunday’s edition of the Los Alamos Monitor.
