  • Missile from Gaza hits Israeli school bus, 2 hurt

    JERUSALEM (AP) — An anti-tank missile fired from the Gaza Strip struck a school bus in southern Israel Thursday, wounding two people, including one critically, Israeli officials said, prompting the fiercest Israeli retaliation on the coastal territory since a broad military offensive two years ago.

    Israel unleashed airstrikes and tank fire against Hamas targets across the border, killing three people and wounding 33 others, including four critically, said Palestinian health official Adham Abu Salmiya.

    He said one dead man was a 50-year-old civilian who was sitting outside his home when he was struck by tank fire. Two other men, in their 20s, were killed near the southern Gaza town of Rafah. It was unclear if they were civilians or militants.

  • Softball: LA holds on to top Española Valley Wednesday

    As any softball player in northern New Mexico will say, few things sting the hands as much as a ball hit off the end of the bat on a cold day.
    So when Monika Teter connected with a first-pitch change-up in the sixth inning and she felt no sting at all, she knew the ball was going somewhere.
    “That felt really good,” Teter said. “That’s one of those hits you don’t feel a thing. I’ve had those stings with hitting, but that felt good.”
    Late in Wednesday’s game at Overlook Park, with the temperature dropping and the sparkle rising in the favor of the Española Valley Sundevils, Teter gave her team a much-needed lift.
