  • LA travels to Bernalillo for district opener Wednesday

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team is starting off its District 2-4A season with a match against a solid team Wednesday.
    Los Alamos will travel to Bernalillo to take on the Spartans Wednesday. Match time is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
    The Los Alamos-Bernalillo match will pit the District 2-4A teams with the two best records during the 2011 season. Bernalillo has been red hot during the nondistrict season, winning 9 of 10 heading into the district opener.
    The Spartans, who have struggled in recent years to make much of a run in the 2-4A standings, have over the course of the last season-and-a-half put themselves in a position to be a potentially serious district contender.

  • Santa Fe tops global list for its clean air

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's capital, which regularly tops rankings for its quality of life, has something new to brag about. The first-ever World Health Organization survey on air pollution said Santa Fe's air quality readings are among the cleanest in the world.

    Santa Fe Mayor David Coss said he's pleased but not surprised as the city consistently gets high rankings from the American Lung Association.

    "It's one of the things we love about living in Santa Fe," he said.

  • NFL Roundup: Rough day physically for QBs in Week 3


    That's the kind of day it was for several NFL quarterbacks, most notably Michael Vick, who broke his right hand, and Mark Sanchez, who might have done the same to his nose.

    Adding more pain Sunday, both lost.

    So did Sam Bradford, who was sacked five times, and Matt Ryan, who went down four times.

    Vick started for Philadelphia despite suffering a concussion in last week's loss at Atlanta. He left the 29-16 defeat at the hands of the New York Giants with the broken hand in the fourth quarter after helping the Eagles overcome a 14-0 first-quarter deficit to take a 16-14 lead.

    It's uncertain how long Vick will be out.

  • Losses, lack of support cited in UNM coach firing--video extra

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's bad record, a lack of fan support, and a number of "embarrassing" off-the-field events led to the firing of head football coach Mike Locksley, athletic director Paul Krebs said Monday.

    Speaking at a news conference on campus, Krebs said he told Locksley on Sunday of his decision to fire him after the Lobos lost 48-45 in overtime Saturday to Sam Houston State before an announced crowd of 16,313 — the smallest home crowd in nearly two decades.

    "In the end I made a decision I thought needed to be made," said Krebs. "I did not see any good ending to this story."
