  • Toppers will be tested in 2nd round

    If the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team wants to advance further into the Class 4A playoffs, it will have to do something it failed to do during the regular season, namely, beat Los Lunas.
    The Hilltoppers (20-7) will take on Los Lunas’ Tigers Thursday in the second round of the Class 4A playoffs. They will meet at 8 a.m. at Cleveland High School in Rio Rancho.
    Los Alamos earned its first postseason win since 2009 last weekend by knocking off the St. Pius X Sartans. Now, it must find a way to top the Tigers (24-2), the No. 3 overall seed.

  • Assets in Action: Recognize those who make a difference

    Please feel free to burst into song with me … “It’s the most wonderful time of the year …”
    Did you know it is staff and teacher appreciation week? I hope you will take a second to show those who really make a difference that they are appreciated.
    I assume the week was selected with the proximity to Mother’s Day, but don’t forget the awesome number of male asset builders out there.
    I also think the idea of appreciating staff and teachers couldn’t come at a better time.
    This seems to be the time of year when students lose their minds, begin to forget the rules or have already left the building mentally in anticipation of summer.
