  • LA football upends Santa Fe Friday night

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team came back from 14 points down in the second half to upset the visiting Santa Fe Demons.

  • Revisiting Petticoat Junction

    A horse is a horse, of course of course, and no one can talk to a horse, of course, and you’re definitely showing your age if you recognize that rhyme.  You also watched way too much television as a child if you can now hear the tune playing in your head.  
    Yes, those were the days, back when dudes like Balaam debated angelic responsibilities with creatures of the genus Equus.  I find it oddly comforting to think back to a time when audiences could be entertained by a talking horse.
