  • Advocate: Fine case is serious

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — New York state must lengthen the statute of limitations to bring charges of child sex abuse, a victims’ advocate said in response to a prosecutor’s statement that it’s too late to investigate two men’s claims that they were molested by former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine.
    Victims of childhood sexual abuse are “denied basic legal rights,” said the Rev. Robert Hoatson of the advocacy group Road to Recovery.
    “If there ever was a case that screamed ‘injustice,’ it is this one, since it glaringly displays the further damage that antiquated laws can inflict on victims,” Hoatson said in a statement.

  • Hilltoppers roll past Sartans in home opener

    So far, so good for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team.
    Following up on a solid finish against some top teams from around the region last weekend, the Hilltoppers were dominant against the St. Pius X Sartans at home Wednesday.
    Los Alamos earned two pins and a major decision in its first four head-to-head contests against St. Pius, setting the tone for a big 64-16 victory at Auxiliary Gymnasium. Los Alamos earned six pinfalls Wednesday, including 106-pounder Mateo Cardiel, who needed just 20 seconds to stick St. Pius Chris Barger.
    It was the biggest Hilltopper victory in several seasons and the biggest under head coach Bob Geyer.
