  • LA blanked by Farmington, 5-0

    The first big Class 4A test for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team didn’t go as well as the team had hoped.
    Charles Klepac and Jeremy Klepac combined for four of five of the Farmington Scorpions’ goals Saturday at Hutchison stadium. The Scorpions, which the Hilltoppers feel might be the team to beat in Class 4A this season, scored a big win Saturday, cruising to a 5-0 victory.
    Klepac, a senior, also had an assist to go with his two goals Saturday, while senior Ryan Reeves finished with a goal and an assist.
    Los Alamos (1-1) had five shots on goal in the game, all of which were picked up by Farmington’s two goalkeepers, Cort Cox and Isaac Kynast, who split time to take the shutout win.

  • ´Toppers thumped by Elks in opener

    Head coach Garett Williams knew the Los Alamos Hilltoppers football team was young and lacked varsity experience.
    But after a 59-22 drubbing at the hands of the Pojoaque Elks Saturday afternoon, Williams has to hope his team matures in a hurry.
    The Hilltoppers faced plenty of adversity from the onset. Dressing only 25 players, Los Alamos tried to deal with the heat, injuries and expulsions to its top players, but it had no way of stopping Pojoaque’s offense, which rolled up a whopping 428 yards.
    “These young kids are going to have to grow up fast,” Williams said. “The older guys we have have to get healthy and we also have older guys getting their first chance at varsity football. They have to step up.”

  • LA’s offense continues to produce in win over Scorps

    Heading into the 2011 season, one of the big questions looming over the Los Alamos Hillltopper girls soccer team was whether it would be able to generate goals consistently.
    For the opening week of the season, anyway, that question was answered definitively.
    Los Alamos scored a pair of goals early in the first half and tacked on two more in the second half to drop its toughest opponent to date, the Farmington Scorpions, 4-2 Saturday afternoon at Dara Jones Field in White Rock.
    The Hilltoppers finished the week a perfect 3-0 and put 22 balls into the onion bag against three Class 4A teams.

  • NNSA Issues Final SEIS for Nuclear Facility Part of CMRR project

    The National Nuclear Security Administration announced Friday it was moving forward with its plans for the nuclear facility portion of the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement Project (CMRR) at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

    The NNSA posted the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) on the DOE NEPA website.

    The timing of the release of the impact statement – late Friday afternoon – did not go unnoticed by critics.

    "It is unlikely that the agency will receive any significant negative publicity for such stunts, as most news reporters who cover NNSA expect such behavior,” said Greg Mello, the director of the Los Alamos Study Group.

  • Responding to those with AIDS

    “How might the Bible shape my response to people with AIDS?”—John

    Basically, two perspectives appear in Scripture. In the ancient Hebrew texts, you will find that God apparently used plague more than once as a means of judgment on those who were in rebellion against Him (Num. 16:41-50; Deut. 28:58ff.) From this observation, you may conclude that AIDS sufferers are being punished by God and thus should be ostracized, even condemned. The close association of AIDS and the homosexual community has made this a quick and ready conclusion for many people over the last 30 years.

  • Accusations continue to fly in alleged drug probe

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP)  — Accusations continue to fly about who’s being targeted in an alleged FBI cocaine investigation in Santa Fe.
    Earlier this week, a fired state police officer said during an arbitration hearing that he lost his job because he was helping investigate a drug case involving Santa Fe City Manager Robert Romero and Congressman Ben Ray Lujan. Both vehemently denied the allegations. Then former Det. James Vigil -- who was fired after a 2010 DWI -- said it was not Lujan but Public Regulation Commission Jerome Block who was being investigated.
    Now Block tells the Albuquerque Journal in a story Friday that he believes Lujan and his father, House Speaker Ben Lujan, manipulated Vigil to change his story.
