  • LA grapplers pick up win over Capital

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team picked up a decisive win over a district foe Wednesday night.
    The Hilltoppers dropped the Capital Jaguars 54-30 at Edward Ortiz Gymnasium. The Hilltoppers had a commanding lead heading into the final six bouts of the dual meet, but the Jaguars were able to come back in the lighter weights to close the gap.
    However, Los Alamos’ grapplers earned some key victories to help secure the win.
    “Everybody wrestled pretty tough,” Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said. “A lot of guys went out and got pins in the first round.”
    Key individual victories for Los Alamos included Chandler Lauritzen at 132 pounds and Isaac Koh at 160.

  • Late-game bucket drops Hilltoppers

    BERNALILLO – It was a wild finish in Wednesday night’s District 2-4A opener between the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team and the Bernalillo Spartans.
    With under a minute remaining and the Hilltoppers clinging to a two-point lead, Bernalillo’s Brandon Saiz made what would be the play of the game, scoring on a lightning-quick inbound play and converting an old-fashioned 3-point play. Los Alamos would have a couple of chances late, but couldn’t take advantage as the Spartans picked up a 51-48 win over the Hilltoppers.
    The contest was the District 2-4A opener for both teams.

  • Appeals aim to overturn State redistricting map

    SANTA FE (AP) — The Legislature and some Democrats are appealing a court-ordered plan for drawing new district boundaries for the state House of Representatives.

    The outcome of the political fight could influence policy decisions in New Mexico for the rest of the decade by determining whether Democrats or Republicans gain an advantage in future elections that determine the makeup of the 70-member House.

    Lawyers for the Legislature and a group of Democrats and minority voters filed separate appeals Tuesday with the state Supreme Court and Court of Appeals seeking to overturn a redistricting decision by District Court Judge James Hall.

  • PRC sets fines against Espanola towing company


    The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission (PRC) recently passed an order to impose heavy cash penalties against a long-time Española-based towing company after it failed to follow state motor carrier laws. 

    Following a non-consensual tow late last year, Robert Seeds Towing Services was found to be in violation of four state and PRC rules. Commissioners closed the case this week, ordering fines totaling more than $15,000. Seeds, an Espanola City Councilor, sits on the North Central Regional Transit Board.
