  • NFL upholds disputed touchdown

    NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL has upheld the Seahawks’ 14-12 win over the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football.
    The league said in a statement Tuesday that Seattle’s last-second touchdown pass should not have been overturned.
    The NFL says Seahawks receiver Golden Tate should have been called for offensive pass interference before the catch, which would have clinched a Packers victory, but that cannot be reviewed by instant replay.
    The replacement officials ruled on the field that Tate had simultaneous possession with Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings, which counts as a reception. The NFL says that once that happened, the referee was correct that no indisputable visual evidence existed on review to overturn the touchdown call.
    On the final play, Russell Wilson heaved a 24-yard pass into a scrum in the end zone. Tate and Jennings both got their hands on the ball, though the Packers insisted Jennings had clear possession for a game-ending interception.

  • LA teams open district play

    Both the Hilltopper boys and girls soccer teams open District 2-4A play this afternoon when they travel to Bernalillo.
    The Hilltoppers will face Bernalillo’s Spartans in a doubleheader. The boys game is scheduled for 4 p.m. and the girls game will start at 6 p.m.
    Los Alamos’ girls, who have won five straight district titles, not having lost a single district game during that time, will again be the team to beat in 2-4A this season. Going in, it would seem only Santa Fe, which Los Alamos faces Saturday at home and Oct. 16 in Santa Fe, has any real hope of ending the Hilltoppers’ streak of district victories.
    The Hilltopper girls (8-1) won five straight contests against stiff competition heading into tonight’s game.
    Los Alamos’ boys, meanwhile, won’t be going into the 2-4A season as the defending champs. That title belongs to Capital, which topped Los Alamos in the 2011 regular season finale and won the 2-4A title by goal differential.
    The Hilltoppers (6-5) have struggled, winning just one of their last five contests. Most recently, they were nipped at Rio Rancho by the Rams, 2-1.
    Capital (6-2) has a 19-7 goals for-goals against margin, but hasn’t played the toughest of competition during the nondistrict season.

  • Hawks pick up 3 wins at XC meet in Española Wednesday

Kathryn McClenahan took top honors in the seventh grade girls race, Zoe Chalacombe won the eighth grade girls race and Ben Rees won his second race of the season in the seventh grade boys race.

  • Council OKs Trinity lease move

    In a move that puts the town’s most prized commercial frontage squarely in the hands of the nation’s largest retail grocer, the Los Alamos County Council voted 5-2 to assign the Trinity Site lease to the development arm of the Kroger Company.

    “Perhaps the third time is a charm,” Council Chair Sharon Stover said as the special council session opened Monday evening. The reference was to failed attempts by two other developers to make a financial go of the Trinity Site redevelopment which has been years in the making.

    The most recent developer to opt out was North American Development Group, which made the proposal to assign its lease to Kroger after NADG spent a six month due diligence period determining that the financial return on the project was not sufficient to continue.

    The county and the Los Alamos Public Schools have partnered in the unique lease arrangement for the land which is designed primarily to generate long-term revenue for the school district.

  • Peanut butter recall expands beyond Trader Joe's

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A New Mexico-based company is recalling 76 types of peanut butter and almond butter after one of its products was linked to a salmonella outbreak at Trader Joe's groceries.

    Sunland Inc. recalled the products under multiple brand names after the Food and Drug Administration and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention linked 29 salmonella illnesses in 18 states to Trader Joe's Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter. Sunland manufactures and packages the Trader Joe's product.

    A Sunland spokeswoman said the company recalled the other peanut and almond butters because they were manufactured with the same equipment as the Trader Joe's product. None of the other products have been linked to illnesses.

    Trader Joe's recalled the Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter from its stores Saturday.
