    SANTA FE – It was unknown heading into Friday’s District 2-4A girls basketball game whether the Santa Fe Demons scored a fluky win earlier in the week or if the Demons are for real.
    It appears the Demons are for real.
    Santa Fe has officially proclaimed itself a serious threat to the 2-4A title in the first week of district season play. After a stunning upset over the homestanding Española Valley Sundevils Tuesday, Santa Fe followed it up by pounding the Los Alamos Hilltoppers Friday night.

    Teen Pulse staff member and LAHS junior Courtney Collier asked LAHS students, “What’s the must-take class before graduating from Los Alamos High?”

  • Ask Alex: Snakes’ mystery revealed

    Editor’s note: In an effort to answer questions that have nagged mankind for eons, Teen Pulse staffer, Alexander Castillo has volunteered to proffer up some answers.

    After spending some time on the Google and the Yahoos while at the same time Binging this question to heck, I have discovered the answer. Would you like to know the answer? Of course you would. This is a question God barely knows the answer to.
    He told the snakes to be, and they were. They had to figure out how drain their bodily fluids all on their own. Needless to say, these snakes were hesitant to divulge their methods of waste expulsion. This only makes sense though. No one likes to be questioned about their bathroom habits.

  • Choosing a college can be tough

    In recent years, the college application process has become more competitive. According to a Jan. 13 New York Times article, the 2011/2012 application year has seen a change in early action trends.
    “Early admission to top colleges, once the almost exclusive preserve of the East Coast elite, is now being pursued by a much broader and more diverse group of students, including foreigners and minorities.”
    This is frightening news for Los Alamos residents, who live in a town that has a high concentration of college-educated residents. As such, their children tend to set very high standards for themselves and do many things in order to achieve their college dreams.
