  • Golf: Rain shortens TPC play

    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Players spent more time in the clubhouse than the golf course Saturday at The Players Championship, a rain-shortened day that left enough time for some high entertainment.
    Martin Kaymer made four straight birdie putts that traveled a combined 71 inches.
    The tournament staff had to move the cup on the 16th hole a few feet after the 4½-hour storm delay because of damage around the hole that it couldn’t repair.
    Ian Poulter was so desperate to finish his third round that he sprinted to the island-green 17th to finish the hole, then ran to the 18th tee and hit his drive to keep himself from having to wake up Sunday before dawn.

    With some big state title performances, Los Alamos collected 52 points at the 4A title meet, held at the University of New Mexico Track and Field Complex, to finish in third place.
    The meet was won by the Artesia Bulldogs, who earned 67 points, snapping a two-year winning streak by the Albuquerque Academy Chargers. Academy finished second with 57 points.

  • Residents ponder Trinity Roundabouts

    Proposed roundabouts on Trinity Drive have stirred debate and controversy recently. 

    In an effort to collect people’s thoughts about the proposed changes along this main artery, Los Alamos County hosted a walking tour Thursday afternoon. 

    Thirty-nine people participated in the walk, which started at the Justice Center, traveled down to the Shell gas station to the Oppenheimer and Trinity intersection before turning to head up to Ashley Pond. The tour ended where it began at the Justice Center.
