  • Lt. Gov. Sanchez recovers from surgery

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Lt. Gov. John Sanchez is recovering from surgery to remove his gall bladder.

    A spokesman for Sanchez said Thursday the elective surgery was performed Monday at an Albuquerque hospital and the lieutenant governor was sent home the next day. He's been working at home and plans to return to his office next week.

    Spokesman Mark Van Dyke said the lieutenant governor experienced pain in his abdomen Sunday night. It was decided that his gall bladder should be removed because it could cause more problems in the future.

    Sanchez, 48, was elected in November. He was the Republican gubernatorial nominee in 2002, but lost to Democrat Bill Richardson in the general election.

  • Track and field: Topper girls vying for 3rd straight state title

    This weekend, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team will be looking to continue its dominance at the Class 4A state meet.
    Los Alamos seems to be well positioned to do just that at the 4A meet, which starts Friday and continues through Saturday at the University of New Mexico Track and Field Complex in Albuquerque.
    The Hilltoppers, who are the two-time defending champions at the meet, have representatives in every event and some that are well positioned to vie for state individual titles.
    Meanwhile, Los Alamos’ boys have high hopes of coming up with a big showing like they had in 2010, that coming from an underdog role.
