    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Midway through Game 4, the speakers at Rangers Ballpark blared the 1960s Halloween favorite "Monster Mash."

    More like a World Series mismatch.

    Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants completely outplayed Texas once again, beating the Rangers 4-0 Sunday night to move within one win of the championship that has eluded them for so long.

  • Yemeni arrested, al-Qaida bomber eyed in mail plot

    SAN'A, Yemen (AP) — Yemeni police arrested a woman on suspicion of mailing a pair of bombs powerful enough to take down airplanes, officials said Saturday as details emerged about a terrorist plot aimed at the U.S. that exploited security gaps in the worldwide shipping system.

  • US-bound bomb could have exploded, downed plane

    WASHINGTON (AP) — At least one of the mail bombs shipped to the United States could have detonated and downed a cargo plane if undiscovered, a British official said Saturday as investigators hunted for terrorists in Yemen.

    The results of Britain's preliminary investigation escalated the seriousness of a plot that investigators said bore the hallmarks of al-Qaida.

  • Explosive packages reflect new Yemen terror threat

    SAN'A, Yemen (AP) — The discovery of two explosive-laden packages sent from Yemen and aimed at U.S. and Western interests represents a new escalation in the terror threat emanating from this violence-wracked, poverty-stricken Mideast country.

    President Barack Obama stopped short of linking the failed plot to al-Qaida in Yemen, but U.S. officials said privately they were increasingly confident that was the source. Obama's counterterrorism adviser John Brennan called the Yemeni wing the most active al-Qaida franchise.

  • Terror plot discovered as US-bound explosives seized

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Authorities on three continents thwarted multiple terrorist attacks aimed at the United States from Yemen on Friday, seizing two explosive packages addressed to Chicago-area synagogues and packed aboard cargo jets.

  • Boys soccer: LA boys looking to make another deep run in playoffs

    1986.
    It was an eventful year in the world of sports. The mighty Chicago Bears, who flirted with a 16-0 record in the regular season, won the Super Bowl in a rout. Bill Buckner missed a ground ball to help the New York Mets win the World Series.
    In Los Alamos, the year’s biggest significance might be the state tournament victory by the Hilltopper boys soccer team, which knocked off Eldorado 2-0 in the finale to grab its one and only state title.

  • Girls soccer: Topper girls have good draw, mojo after big wins

    The bad news the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team was given Sunday was quickly tempered with much better news.
    Los Alamos was more than a little bummed that its two big wins in the final two games of its regular season didn’t seem to count for much when the seeding for the Class AAAA state tournament was announced. Instead of their two wins over St. Michael’s and Aztec in the final two days of the regular season boosting their stock, the Hilltoppers fell into pretty much the exact same spot they were projected to go into prior to the two wins.

  • Football: LA hosts season finale tonight

    Los Alamos closes out its regular season with a District 2AAAA contest tonight at home. The Hilltoppers will host the Capital Jaguars at 7 p.m.

    A win coupled with a favorable outcome between Santa Fe and Bernalillo — those two teams play tonight — could give the Hilltoppers the district title this season. Should Santa Fe prevail at home against Bernalillo by a margin of between 2-7 points, the Hilltoppers will win the district title on the point-differential tiebreaker.
