  • LA shuts out Aztec to close out season

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team closed out its season with a win Saturday afternoon.
    Los Alamos overcame a windy first half to play the Aztec Tigers to a draw through to halftime. In the second half, the Hilltoppers got a goal from Leslie Guarello, who sent a shot into the upper-right corner of the goal.
    Guarello’s goal is all the Hilltoppers would need in a 1-0 victory in the Four Corners area.
    “They have some quick people on the side, up front and on defense,” Hilltopper head coach Jiri Kubicek said of Aztec. “We could’ve scored some goals, but we missed some good opportunities. We may see them again. They’re going to be a good team.”

  • ´Toppers finish on top at LA Invite Friday

    Jennifer Mooday took a near wire-to-wire victory for Los Alamos, while Teresa Sandoval and Jordan Parker finished in seventh and eighth places to lead the team to victory.
    Los Alamos finished with 41 points, eight points better than second-place Cleveland.

  • Obama announces U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq--video extra

  • John Pawlak: It's a waste of paint

    Newspapers and TV news shows rain dismal tidings on us every day. Cuts in educational budgets.
    Cuts in civil spending. Cuts in federal aid to community projects.  Cuts in unemployment benefits.
    Cuts in transportation spending. If you discuss anything that has to do with helping people, you’d think you’re on the set of an Ed Wood movie. Cut! Cut! For Pete’s sake, would someone please cut the camera’s power cord?
    Cutting is a national epidemic and it’s unlikely to see a light at the end of this tunnel for some time.
    That’s because they cut the budget for the electric bill and so that light went out a long time ago.
    It behooves us to curb wasteful spending, to look for ways to save a buck or two.
