  • House passes redistricting plan

    To say the least, it was a long day Wednesday for State Rep. Jim Hall (R-Los Alamos, Sandoval, and Santa Fe).

    A House redistricting plan that would keep Los Alamos intact won approval early Thursday in the 70-member chamber and Gov. Susana Martinez made it clear she doesn’t support the proposal.

    The measure passed on a 36-34 vote with one Democrat breaking party ranks to join Republicans in opposing the plan.

    Hall did not support or vote in favor of the measure either, but it pained him.

  • NFL: no faking injuries

    NEW YORK (AP) — To the fake handoff and fake field goals, add fake injuries.
    The NFL sent a memo Wednesday to all 32 teams warning of fines, suspensions and loss of draft picks if the league determines players faked injuries during a game. Yet several players admit it’s an accepted practice.
    “I’ve been places where it has been (taught),” said Browns linebacker Scott Fujita, a member of the players’ union executive committee. “They have a name for it and I’ve been places where it’s been pre-called. I’ve been places where it’s one player who has been designated. Maybe I’m getting everyone in trouble, but I’m just being honest.”

  • Toppers, Chargers to tangle again Friday

    Los Alamos’ Hilltoppers and Albuquerque Academy’s Chargers will face off for the second time during the 2011 cross country season on the Chargers’ home turf.
    Los Alamos will take part in the Albuquerque Academy Invitational Friday afternoon. The invitational, a mid-sized meet that nonetheless usually boasts a crop of good talent, is run on the dusty trails on Academy’s expansive campus.
    The Hilltoppers are perennial competitors at the Academy Invitational. In the 2010 race, the Hilltopper girls finished fourth in the team standings, running without one of their top athletes, Victoria Honnell, while the Hilltopper boys were third overall.

  • NMAA votes to keep Santa Fe in 4A

    District 2-4A will remain intact for the next two-year block of time, the New Mexico Activities Association determined Wednesday.
    Santa Fe High School will keep its status as a Class 4A team and will remain in the district along with Los Alamos, Bernalillo, Española Valley and cross-town rival Capital, the NMAA determined at its Board of Directors meeting.
    The NMAA is the governing body of most interscholastic prep sports in the state and determines the districts in which its member schools compete.
    When enrollment figures came out during the summer, it was determined by the NMAA that Santa Fe had surpassed the threshold of Class 4A enrollment, currently 1,650 students. Beyond 1,650 students, teams move up to Class 5A.
