  • Finnish Team Wins Wife Carrying Contest

  • CenturyLink, union fail to reach labor agreement

    DENVER (AP) — CenturyLink and the union representing 13,000 workers in 13 states in the West and Midwest have failed to reach a contract agreement, but have signed onto a day-to-day extension of the expired pact.

    The Communications Workers of America made the announcement after the existing labor contract expired at 11:59 p.m. Saturday. CWA spokesman Al Kogler said in a statement that negotiations will continue and workers will remain on the job during the extension.

    Kogler has said the union opposes a proposed increase in health care premiums and wants to bring more jobs back to the U.S. The union had authorized a strike in the event that a new deal couldn't be reached with the Monroe, La.-based telecommunications company.

    CenturyLink workers in Montana, who are negotiating a separate contract, also agreed to the extension

  • LA closes out 2-4A game early

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team won going away Saturday against the Capital Jaguars, but it wasn’t all a celebration.
    While heading in for the first score of the game just a little over three minutes in, Los Alamos’ Catie McDonald ran headlong into the Jaguars’ left goalpost. McDonald was down on the ground right by the goalpost for several minutes until she was taken by ambulance to Los Alamos Medical Center.
    McDonald, who is having a marvelous season for the Hilltoppers, was groggy following the collision and had to be taken by gurney off the field to the waiting ambulance.
    Initial reports suggested McDonald may have suffered a whiplash-like hit to her head and neck.
    Despite the early injury, which left many Hilltopper players and spectators shaken, the team regrouped to rout the Jaguars 10-0.
    McDonald’s sister, Meghan, tallied the 10th and final goal in the 62nd minute on a penalty kick.
    Los Alamos scored six goals in the first half, with Amy Neal picking up a hat trick 24 minutes into the game.
    With the victory, the Hilltoppers (12-2) improved to 3-0 in 2-4A play and have outscored their three district opponents 26-0 in those games.

  • Toppers pick up win on road

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team picked up an important win on the road Saturday afternoon.
    Los Alamos came back from a 3-point halftime deficit to grab a 29-25 victory over the Albuquerque Academy Chargers at Richard Harper Memorial Field in Albuquerque.
    Quarterback Brice Van Etten found Xavier Dennison open in the middle of the field for a 49-yard touchdown with about six minutes remaining Saturday.
    The long score gave the Hilltoppers a 29-19 edge. The Chargers (3-3) would score a touchdown with under four minutes to go but Los Alamos picked up two big first downs on its ensuing drive to kill the clock.
    Saturday was Academy’s homecoming contest, but the host Chargers lost their second straight game to the Hilltoppers. The Hilltoppers beat the Chargers at Sullivan Field for their 2011 homecoming game.
    A loss by the Hilltoppers, who evened their season record at 3-3, would’ve likely cost them any stab at an at-large invitation to the Class 4A playoffs this year, should they need to go that route.
    The fourth quarter touchdown was the second long score of the game for Dennison, who ran 46 yards to paydirt to give Los Alamos an 8-0 lead early in the fourth quarter.
