  • Martinson wins third straight City tournament

    Tami Martinson took a solid lead after the opening round of the City Championship tournament and hung on through the second round to win her third straight title.
    Martinson, who is on an exceptional run at the City tournament, shot a total of 165 this weekend, holding off a charge Sunday from Ev Griggs.
    Griggs, the most decorated amateur golfer in Los Alamos County history and an 18-time winner of the City tournament, had a solid round of 82 Sunday to get within striking distance, but Martinson’s 84 gave her a three-stroke victory.
    In the past three City tournaments, Martinson has won with solid numbers.
    Martinson earned a five-shot win in 2010 and picked up a whopping 14-shot victory 2009, in which she broke 80 both days.

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A Santa Fe man has been arrested on suspicion of voyeurism after police say he was taking up-skirt photos of several unsuspecting women and a child with his cell phone at area department stores.
