  • U.S. has own nuclear issues

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama, holding a summit to urge world leaders to secure their nuclear material, frequently calls the risk of terrorists getting a nuke “the single biggest threat to U.S. security.” What he is less likely to talk about is the United States’ own shortcomings in safeguarding its nuclear stockpile.

  • Parents urged to seek help

    Gov. Bill Richardson issued a proclamation naming April “Child Abuse Prevention Month” in an effort to address the approximate 30,000 reports of child abuse and neglect in New Mexico each year.

    “Child abuse and neglect are serious problems and finding a solution depends upon the involvement of people within our community,” Richardson states in his proclamation. “During periods of economic challenges, families feel more vulnerable and as a result child abuse and neglect increase drastically.”

  • Update: Online reporting glitches may be holding up campaign finance reports

    As of Wednesday afternoon, only seven of the eleven county council candidates had campaign finance reports posted on the secretary of state's site. The deadline for filing the reports elapsed at midnight Monday. The penalty for failure to file the report can cost a candidate for public office $50 per day.

  • Boys tennis: Hilltoppers shut out Tigers

    If there had been any doubt as to the ultimate outcome of this season’s District 2AAAA boys tennis competition, Tuesday probably squelched that doubt for good.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys tennis team crushed the Taos Tigers at home, sweeping all nine matches the team played and not losing a single set in the process.

    Los Alamos gave up just six games in Nos. 1-4 singles Tuesday and just four games in the three doubles contests to come away with a big 9-0 victory.

  • Girls tennis: LA tops Taos in home dual

    More years than not, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls tennis team is wary of its District 2AAAA counterparts from Taos. Usually with good reason.

    That was again apparent with the two teams’ dual meet Tuesday.

    The Hilltoppers came away with a 5-4 victory Tuesday at home, but the Tigers aren’t ready to concede anything to the Hilltoppers as the District 2AAAA tournament inches closer.
