  • LA boys, girls run at UNM on Friday

    It is a common position to be in for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls cross country team, but not so much for the Hilltopper boys.
    Going into the 2012 season, the Hilltopper teams are both solid favorites in Class 4A. Rarely is a team other than the Albuquerque Academy Charger boys the favorite.
    But after losing just one senior off a team that demolished all comers at the 2011 state meet, including the vaunted Chargers, the Hilltoppers are doubtlessly the team to beat.
    “We’re trying not to think about it,” said returning runner Orion Staples. “Obviously, Academy’s still a major threat. Again, we’ve got to run the hardest. It’ll be good if we can beat them.”
    The Hilltopper boys will be paced by senior Sean Reardon, who had a monster track season. His spring culminated in an upset victory over Del Norte’s Jackson Thomas in the 1,600 meters and a runner-up finish behind Jackson in the 3,200.
    Reardon posted his best finish ever in last weekend’s preseason dual against La Cueva, a notable 5A program.
    Los Alamos has been a regular participant at the University of New Mexico Invitational, where the teams will open their season Friday.

  • GOP speech puts NM governor in national spotlight

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez used her debut on the national political stage Wednesday night to offer a message of hope and opportunity, describing how she rose from modest roots in a border community to become the nation's first female Hispanic governor.

    Martinez made a prime-time appearance at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., speaking minutes before Paul Ryan accepted the vice presidential nomination.

    She offered her life story as an example of the "promise of America" and emphasized the importance of the presidential election in preserving those opportunities for future generations.

    Martinez made political history with her election in 2010, becoming the first woman elected as governor of New Mexico as well as the nation's first Latina governor.

  • Thank You 08-29-12

    We would like to thank the community for its support of our third annual High Tea and Fashion Show on Aug. 18, 2012. We served approximately 108 guests.  
    More than 50 volunteers worked for weeks to make this event our most successful fundraising effort,  with the proceeds going toward the costs of our house building mission trips to Juaréz, Mexico.
    The fashions, modeled by 13 ladies, men and children,  were from the Shop on the Corner Thrift Shop, which is open Wednesday mornings on the corner of Diamond and Canyon, across from Griffith Gym.
    In addition, we had a silent auction featuring everything from silk scarves to a wide variety of gift baskets to an airplane ride.
    Several church members donated and prepared the sweets and savories offered, while others, including several members of the youth choir, served our guests.
    We also wish to thank local businesses and individuals who contributed to the event. The Los Alamos Monitor did a beautiful article with color photographs  on the front page of the “Diversions” section.
    KRSN aired an interview with the event chair, RSVP distributed flyers and several people advertised the tea on Facebook. Photos are still posted on the Trinity on the Hill Facebook Group.
