  • Toppers win title with rout of Sundevils

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team wrapped up the 2012 District 2-4A championship with a big win Wednesday night in Española.
    Monika Teter threw a five-inning no hitter and was just one batter away from a perfect game as the Hilltoppers thumped the Española Valley Sundevils 11-0.
    Los Alamos (16-5 overall, 9-1 in 2-4A) claimed its fourth consecutive district title with the victory and, perhaps more importantly, the district’s automatic bid into next month’s state tournament. Los Alamos scored five runs in the fourth inning and two more in the fifth to close out the game in about an hour.

  • WRBC presents ‘Shadowlands’

    “A serious, thought-provoking work of substance, quality and class … ‘Shadowlands’ speaks of this world as being a prelude for what will follow and how pain is the inverse of joy …” said Jeff Lyons of CBS Radio, describing the British play written by William Nicholson.
    Nicholson, a former BBC documentary film producer, has written several award-winning screenplays.
    His first work for the stage, “Shadowlands,” won the 1990 London Evening Standard Best Play Award. This script is the basis for the 1993 movie featuring Anthony Hopkins and Deborah Winger.

  • ‘GMA’ poised to snap ‘Today’ winning streak

    NEW YORK (AP) — The 16-year ratings dominance of NBC’s “Today” show, one of television’s most epic streaks, has apparently ended.
    The Nielsen Co. said Monday that ABC’s “Good Morning America” beat NBC’s morning show last week by a razor-thin margin of 13,000 viewers — and ABC owes Tim Tebow a hearty thank you.
    The “Today” show had won 852 consecutive weeks in the ratings, a streak that began in December 1995 when Bryant Gumbel and Katie Couric were the chief anchors.
