  • Chimayo: Off the beaten path

    During Lent and particularly during Holy Week, thousands of pilgrims flock to El Santuario de Chimayó to profess their faith, do penance, or ask for help with various medical and personal issues.

  • Baseball: Late blast lifts 'Toppers to victory

    BERNALILLO — A big turning point in the season for the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team occurred about two weeks ago.
    Los Alamos, which had struggled through a tough nondistrict schedule to that point, played three of its best games of the season at a tournament in Farmington. While Los Alamos went just 1-2 in the tournament, the team seemed to kick its game up a notch.
    Should the Hilltoppers be looking to turn their fortunes around in 2011, they picked a good time to do it.
    Wednesday in its District 2-4A opener, Los Alamos manufactured runs when it needed to, then got a monster shot courtesy of Jared Mang in its final at-bat to grab a 4-3 victory against the Bernalillo Spartans at Coach Dave Rostro Baseball Complex.

  • Golf: Tiger is wounded but still very dangerous

    Depending on which side of “The Pond” you’re on, arguably the biggest event in the realm of golf is upon us once again.
    Monday begins the practice rounds at Augusta National, which hosts The Masters tournament.
    With the possible exception of St. Andrews, Augusta is the most storied course in golf. Augusta has hosted some of the most exciting (I’m using “exciting” in relative terms, of course) golf that has ever been witnessed.
    As a player I met a few years ago told me, “the grass is like carpet” at Augusta. There is little about the place that isn’t eye-catching, even for the non-golfer.

  • Gates: No ground troops in Libya while 'I am in this job'

    WASHINGTON (AP) — As the U.S. debates its future role in the Libyan conflict, Defense officials slammed the brakes on any broad participation Thursday, with Defense Secretary Robert Gates saying there will be no American ground troops in Libya "as long as I am in this job."

    Under withering congressional probing and criticism of an ill-defined mission to aid a rebel force that officials know little about, Gates and Joint Chiefs chairman Adm. Mike Mullen sketched out a largely limited role for the U.S. military going forward, with Gates saying some other country could train the rebels trying to oust strongman Moammar Gadhafi.

  • Radioactivity 10,000 times standard at Japan plant

    TOKYO (AP) — Officials with the company that operates Japan's tsunami-stricken nuclear plant say radioactive contamination in groundwater underneath a reactor has been measured at 10,000 times the government health standard.

    A spokesman for plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. says the company doesn't believe any drinking water supply is affected.

    Contaminated water has been pooling at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power complex since it was damaged by the devastating earthquake and tsunami. It has already leaked into the ocean.
