  • Boys basketball: LA dropped by Sandia, 55-29

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team hung around with the Class 5A Sandia Matadors for a little more than a quarter and a half, but the Matadors started to pull away late in the first half.
    The Matadors went on a 13-2 run in the final 3:28 of the second quarter to take control of the ballgame. The Matadors never looked back, earning a 55-29 victory Saturday at Griffith Gymnasium.
    Saturday’s game was the final one of the nondistrict season for the Hilltoppers, who open 2AAAA play Wednesday with the Bernalillo Spartans.

  • Men's basketball: Lobos fall to No. 6 San Diego St.

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Coach Steve Fisher is almost ready to say it: smooth-shooting point guard D.J. Gay is San Diego State’s best player.
    Gay scored a career-high 30 points, Kawhi Leonard had 19 points and 15 rebounds and No. 6 San Diego State beat New Mexico 87-77 on Saturday night to remain one of the nation’s four unbeaten teams.
    Fisher said he has maintained all season that Gay is arguably the team’s most important player.

  • Wrestling: LA picks up 8 wins at tourney

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team had a rough outing at this weekend’s Joe Vivian Invitational, with only two wrestlers surviving day one of the two day tournament.
    Los Alamos took a good portion of its team down to the tournament in Albuquerque, but picked up just eight wins total, half of those by Desmond Fellers and three more by Cory Geyer.

  • Martinez ousts spaceboard authority members

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Republican Gov. Susana Martinez has ousted appointive members of the state Spaceport Authority and removed a political ally of former Gov. Bill Richardson from the state Transportation Commission.

    Martinez announced Friday that she was dismissing members of the Spaceport Authority. She said developing the state's commercial spaceport requires more private investment and new leadership.

  • Boys basketball: Buzzer-beater by Elks downs Toppers

    It was a defensive struggle, to say the very least.
    Playing in its next-to-last game before the start of the District 2AAAA season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team held its opponent, Pojoaque, to a season-low 21 points.
    That was the good news. The bad news was the Hilltoppers could only manage a season-low 18 points.
    Lucas Salazar, Pojoaque’s slippery point guard, hit a fallaway, 25-foot 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded to give the Elks the victory in the offensively-punchless nondistrict contest Thursday at Griffith Gymnasium.

  • Football: Predicting games ain't no pic-a-nic...

    OK, so maybe my NFL playoff picks didn't go quite as well last week as they could've. Personally, I blame that "Yogi Bear" movie.

    How could anyone think it was a good idea to make a movie about Yogi Bear? He wasn't that funny 50 years ago and he certainly hasn't aged very well. How did anyone think they could score big bucks in theaters by resurrecting him now when almost no kid in the world has any emotional attachment to him?

  • Tool helps small business tap global markets

    Technology and energy products, chili peppers, nuts, dairy goods and other farm products have topped the list of New Mexico’s exports for the past few years, but the state has a vast untapped potential to sell more of its goods and services well beyond our nation’s boundaries.

  • Birthright all wrong

    The first week of the year started off with a bang.  Well, more of a loud laugh.  The new majority in the House decided to demonstrate that they are “dedicated to our Constitution and the principles for which it stands” and hence used a couple hours to read the U.S. Constitution.
