  • Hilltoppers, Sundevils set to tangle tonight

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team will have an important contest against its arch-rival tonight in Griffith Gymnasium.
    The Hilltoppers (9-15 overall, 2-4 in 2-4A) are in need of a win to improve their standings in the district race and will need to pick it up against the Española Valley Sundevils.
    The game is scheduled for 7 p.m.
    The Sundevils (8-15, 2-3) are in much the same position as the Hilltoppers. The winner of tonight’s game has a shot at the No. 3 position in the upcoming district tournament, which means a first-round tournament bye.
    The two teams met Jan. 24 at Española Valley, with the Sundevils holding on for a 37-33 win.

  • District wrestling tourney is Saturday

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team is getting geared up for what it’s hoping will be a big showing Saturday.
    Los Alamos feels good about its chances to vie for a District 2-4A team title, but knows it will have to knock off defending 2-4A champ and host school for this year’s tournament, Santa Fe.
    The Hilltoppers are going into the tournament with some confidence following one of their better regular season showings in recent memory, that culminated with a win at the Bryan Sanchez Memorial Invitational last week.
    At last week’s tournament, the Hilltoppers’ showcase home event, Los Alamos finished with 163 team points to take top honors among the nine competing teams.

  • They're back: Social issues overtake US politics

    WASHINGTON (AP) — All of a sudden, abortion, contraception and gay marriage are at the center of American political discourse, with the struggling — though improving — economy pushed to the background.

    Social issues don't typically dominate the discussion in shaky economies. But they do raise emotions important to factors like voter turnout. And they can be key tools for political candidates clamoring for attention, campaign cash or just a change of subject in an election year.
