  • Toppers grab big win at home Friday

    It was a big night for the seniors on the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team in more ways than one.
    In the home season finale for the Hilltoppers, they put together one of their best team showings of the year and did so against their arch-rival, the Española Valley Sundevils.
    Los Alamos made key buckets during a big second quarter push that propelled it to a 56-45 win against Española Valley Friday night at Griffith Gymnasium.
    It was Senior Night for the Hilltoppers, but the team got contributions from seniors and underclassmen alike. Senior guard Nate Carver dropped in 17 points while sophomore Franklin Archuleta added five points during a 16-4 Los Alamos scoring run in the second quarter.

  • LA grabs elusive district title

    SANTA FE — Inside the wrestling room at the Pueblo Complex, a banner hangs from the wall. The banner is 17 years old and has stood alone for a long time.
    “We’ve been pointing at that banner every day for a month now,” Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said, to remind the team that it hadn’t earned a district title since 1995. “We told (our guys), ‘if you want one, you’d better wrestle.’”
    Now, that banner will have some company.
    The Hilltoppers earned a 2-4A title Saturday at Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium. They finished with 156 team points, 23 points better than co-runners up Santa Fe and Bernalillo.

  • Investigators seek answers to Houston's death--Video Extras

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Investigators worked Sunday to piece together what killed Whitney Houston as the music industry's biggest names prepared for a Grammy Awards show that will undoubtedly feel as much like a memorial as a celebration.

    Houston's body arrived at the morgue early Sunday, and an autopsy could shed some light on how Houston died while in a room at the Beverly Hills Hilton on Saturday afternoon. An official determination of her cause of death will likely take weeks while investigators await the results of toxicology tests.

  • Fashion Maven: Don’t be afraid to show off your socks

    Often overlooked in fashion, socks hide in dressers, are crammed in corners of messy rooms and often pairs of them get separated.
    Yet, they are admittedly an ingenious part of fashion. Of course, they are functional and that’s what most of us see them as.
    Socks can be made into so much more though, and can look insanely cute with outfits for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
    Before rattling off all of the wonderful fashions that can be created with a lovely pair of socks, it is necessary to establish how not to wear socks.
    You know, just to get everyone on the right track. As a general rule, socks should not be worn with flat sandals, especially Birkenstocks.
