  • Obama wins Fla., topping Romney in final tally

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — President Barack Obama was declared the winner of Florida's 29 electoral votes Saturday, ending a four-day count with a razor-thin margin that narrowly avoided an automatic recount that would have brought back memories of 2000.

    No matter the outcome, Obama had already clinched re-election and now has 332 electoral votes to Romney's 206.

    The Florida Secretary of State's Office said that with almost 100 percent of the vote counted, Obama led Republican challenger Mitt Romney 50 percent to 49.1 percent, a difference of about 74,000 votes. That was over the half-percent margin where a computer recount would have been automatically ordered unless Romney had waived it.

    There is a Nov. 16 deadline for overseas and military ballots, but under Florida law, recounts are based on Saturday's results. Only a handful of overseas and military ballots are believed to remain outstanding.

  • LA boys outlast Los Lunas in quarterfinals

    ALBUQUERQUE — The onus was on the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team’s defense to slow down the top scorer in Class 4A.
        And, aside for a breakaway early in the second half, the Hilltoppers were up to the task.
    Los Alamos limited the touches of Los Lunas striker Alejandro Garcia for much of Thursday’s Class 4A quarterfinal. Meanwhile, the Hilltoppers struck twice, once in the first half and once in the second half, to earn a 2-1 victory over Los Lunas’ Tigers.
    Los Alamos’ semifinal contest was scheduled for this afternoon at the Albuquerque Public Schools Soccer Complex against second-seeded Chaparral.
    It was a rough game, however, with neither team being able to connect passes on their offensive ends.
    Prior to the win, the Hilltoppers had been on a layoff since Oct. 23. Los Alamos goalkeeper Chris Parker said the time off had an effect on the team.
    “We didn’t play as well as we should’ve,” he said. “I’m grateful the team was able to pull this off and have another day at state.”

  • Toppers earn shutout to advance

    ALBUQUERQUE — It was a question to be answered how well the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team would play following a long layoff.
    And while the Hilltoppers earned a 1-0 victory, they were hoping to see a better overall contest than they did Thursday.
    Los Alamos picked up the win over the Piedra Vista Panthers in the quarterfinal round of the Class 4A state championship tournament and advanced to this morning’s 4A semifinal round, its 13th consecutive trip to the semifinals.
    But Los Alamos managed just one goal on the day Thursday, that coming in the 27th minute by Amy Neal with an outstanding individual effort.
    Neal corralled a long ball from the defensive third and drove into the penalty box. She made a small juke to the left and split a pair of fullbacks.
    Neal’s shot from point-blank range went right through a stabbing attempt by Piedra Vista’s Sara Engert.
    Los Alamos had several more chances throughout the contest to give itself breathing room over Piedra Vista but struggled to get its shots on target.
    The lowered output was due to a combination of factors, including the layoff, but the Hilltoppers also had to deal with the physicality of the Panthers.

  • Talking about sacraments and magic

    Someone said that churches that have sacraments practice magic. Is this true? — Mikaela F.

     

    Absolutely not! This false supposition gets forced onto the Orthodox, because we are accused of really being Roman Catholic. We are not. 

    Christian magic developed out of the radical mistrust of the Roman Catholic church, which produced the Reformation. 

    The reformers wanted to discredit those things held in the church and wanted to promote those things, which they were creating using “the Bible,” via logical deduction and reason.
