  • Peyton Manning may be out for the season

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts thought they’d suffered a big blow when they ruled their four-time MVP quarterback out for the season opener. Now they may have lost Peyton Manning for the entire season.
    Manning underwent more neck surgery Thursday, his third procedure in 19 months, and his return this season is uncertain.
    Losing Manning for any stretch of time is something the Colts would love to avoid, and it’s certain to throw the race for the AFC South wide open. Manning hasn’t missed a game in 14 NFL seasons, with 227 consecutive starts, including the postseason.

  • No. 8 Farmington takes on LA tonight

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team will make its debut on its new turf at Sullivan Field tonight.
    The Hilltoppers will take on the Farmington Scorpions at the newly refurbished Sullivan Field. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
    Farmington will go into tonight’s game as the eighth-ranked team in Class 4A. It also heads into the game off a big victory last Thursday against the Los Alamos’ District 2-4A rival, Bernalillo.
    Bernalillo, the two-time defending district champs, got waxed by the Scorpions 40-0 in the Four Corners last week, one night before Los Alamos took a 60-0 defeat against the Aztec Tigers, a game that lasted only until halftime.

  • Firefighters progress against Central Texas blaze

    BASTROP, Texas (AP) — Firefighters are tamping down hotspots and holding back flames from a wildfire that has burned for days across Central Texas, incinerating nearly 1,400 homes and tens of thousands of acres of drought-parched land, officials said Friday.

    The fire in and around Bastrop, about 25 miles east of Austin, officially remained 30 percent contained, but crews had surrounded and closed in on the flames and no new homes were reported destroyed overnight.

    "It seems to be holding well today," public information officer Annette Grijalva-Disert said.

  • Slipping Bachmann seeks jolt for GOP campaign

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Republican Michele Bachmann's presidential campaign fell just as quickly as it rose. Now, she's looking to Iowa — at the expense of other early voting states — to get back on track.

    It's a strategy of necessity for the Minnesota congresswoman. A victory in Iowa this winter would keep her afloat in the GOP nomination fight; a loss would almost certainly end her bid.

    "We know that when Michele is in Iowa, she wins," said Bachmann's Iowa campaign chairman, Kent Sorenson. "If she's here, she'll win Iowa."

  • Cut taxes, Obama tells Congress in $450B jobs plan

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Attacking a deepening jobs crisis, President Barack Obama challenged a reluctant Congress Thursday night to urgently pass a larger-than-expected $450 billion plan to "jolt an economy that has stalled." He urged lawmakers to slash Social Security taxes for tens of millions of Americans and for almost every business to encourage hiring.

    "Stop the political circus," an animated Obama told a joint session of Congress in a nationally televised speech. Over and over he implored lawmakers to "pass this jobs bill."

  • Officials chase unconfirmed al-Qaida bomb threat

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. counterterrorism officials are chasing a credible but unconfirmed al-Qaida threat to set off a car bomb on bridges or tunnels in New York City or Washington. It was the first word of an "active plot" timed to coincide with the somber commemoration of the terror group's 9/11 attacks a decade ago that killed nearly 3,000 people.

    Counterterrorism officials were investigating the threat throughout the night and into Friday, as police in New York and Washington said they would increase their already stepped-up staffing levels in light of the recent intelligence.

  • Smoke in Los Alamos caused by 250-acre Guacamalla Fire

    Los Alamos residents and people from north of Albuquerque to Jemez Springs are seeing increased smoke today from the Guacamalla Fire, approximately 50 miles southwest of Los Alamos and about five miles east of Ponderosa.

    Fuels on the ground received additional moisture over the Labor Day weekend and as a result created a lot of smoke.

    Los Alamos Fire Chief Doug Tucker said there is no cause for concern because the fire will soon burn itself out as it enters property scorched and barren from the Las Conchas Fire.

    Because of the moisture level, the fire is burning slowly with low spread potential. Two miles east of the fire is the Las Conchas Fire burn area, and is not likely to spread east of the burn area.
