  • Raw Video: Marines Practice Amphibious Assaults

  • NM regulators repeal carbon cap and trade rules

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's participation in a regional cap and trade program aimed at curbing greenhouse gas emissions became more unlikely Monday with a unanimous vote by state regulators.

    The decision by the Environmental Improvement Board to repeal the cap and trade rules came in response to petitions filed by New Mexico's largest electric utilities, oil and gas developers and others who feared the rules would push businesses and jobs to neighboring states.

    Gov. Susana Martinez, a critic of regulating carbon emissions at the state level, was pleased with the board's decision, spokesman Scott Darnell said.

  • Giants beat Patriots 21-17 to win the Super Bowl

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Take that, Brady. You too, Peyton.

    Eli Manning is the big man in the NFL after one-upping Tom Brady and leading the New York Giants to a 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots in Sunday's Super Bowl — in older brother Peyton's house, at that.

    Just as Manning did four years ago when the Giants ruined New England's perfect season, he guided them 88 yards to the decisive touchdown, which the Patriots didn't contest as Ahmad Bradshaw ran 6 yards with 57 seconds left.

    Patriots coach Bill Belichick reasoned the Giants would run the clock down and kick a short field goal, so he gambled by allowing the six points.

    The gamble failed.

  • Front four for Giants could play a big role

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Defense for the New York Giants starts with the front four.
    Stopping the run and forcing the opposition into passing situations will let loose possibly the best group of pass rushers in the NFL. It was the formula the Giants used in 2008 in pounding Tom Brady and stunning the previously unbeaten New England Patriots in the Super Bowl — and the game plan hasn’t changed for next weekend’s title game rematch in Indianapolis.
    The Giants (12-7) want Brady on edge every time he passes. Throw a ball. Expect to be hit. Even the threat of being hit might be enough to influence a play. And that just might be the difference.

  • Spartans outgun LA in second half to win 67-59

    In what was probably the biggest game of its season to date, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team had a chance to reverse its fortunes in a hurry Saturday night.
    Los Alamos could’ve made a big splash in the District 2-4A standings if it could’ve pulled off an upset against the Bernalillo Spartans. Los Alamos’ upset prospects looked good after the first half at Griffith Gymnasium Saturday, taking a 30-26 lead into the locker room, but the Spartans bounced back in a big way in the third quarter.
    The Spartans outscored the Hilltoppers 20-8 in the third quarter and survived a comeback attempt in the fourth quarter to take a 67-59 decision.

  • ´Toppers take first place at Sanchez Invite

    If the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team was in need of momentum heading into the District 2-4A tournament this week, it found some on Saturday.
    Los Alamos hosted its annual Bryan Sanchez Memorial Invitational Saturday, the final event of its regular season. In the tournament, Los Alamos’ top squad finished with 163 points to pick up the team victory, outdistancing the Valencia Jaguars, who finished with 139 points.
    At the tournament, Los Alamos’ grapplers earned four top weight-class finishes. Cory Geyer was the big winner at 152 pounds, Brian Geyer won at 170 pound, Jonathan Schueler won a two-man battle at heavyweight and Arnoldo Ortiz picked up a win in the closest-contested weight class of the day, 182 pounds.
