  • Girls tennis: LA taking 3 singles, 2 doubles to state

    TAOS — Despite taking it on the chin earlier this month at home, the top Los Alamos girls doubles tennis team was hoping to turn its fortunes around this weekend.

    And it did just that Saturday by throwing the Taos No. 1 doubles team a curveball. Or more accurately, an off-speed pitch.

    In a weekend that turned out to be a big one for the Hilltoper girls tennis team, the victory by Brenna O’Hara/Sarah Worland turned out to be huge.

  • Art in all shapes and sizes

    Linda Garlick, an artist from Taos, fell into her trade by accident. “I needed money as a single mom supporting a child,” she said. “I decided to do Christmas ornaments of retablos and they sold really well.”

    Her art expanded as she turned to printing, which allowed Garlick to produce more retablos at a reduced price.

    “Then they took over my life and became a real business,” she said. “I feel like this is what I was suppose to do … they changed my life.”

  • NJROTC student puts knowledge into action

    An emergency situation can leap out at any time, anywhere with out any warning. For instance, Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJRTOC) cadet Paige Ramsey and her family experienced an unforeseen crisis at the dinner table.

    Ramsey explained her family was eating dinner and her mother, Marilyn, started choking on the food she was eating.

    When an unforeseen crisis arises many individuals may panic but Ramsey resorted to another tactic.

    She performed the Heimlich Maneuver and saved her mother’s life.

  • The best gift of the baby shower

    It’s a tiny, velvety pink pair of pajamas, with miniature feet, each one barely big enough for a Ruby K’s mini-muffin, and a silky cut-out of a pointe shoe stitched over one hip.

    It’s a handmade quilt with squares of antique fabric featuring drawings of marionettes.

    It’s a book, only it’s also a glove with a little pig on each finger.

    It’s a baby.

  • Something’s Cooking at the Spitfire Grill

    Things out of the ordinary have been occurring in our small town of Gilead, Wis., ever since the arrival of a newcomer. Percy Talbott, Gilead’s newest, and in my opinion, unwelcome, resident has spent the last five years in prison and seems to be interested in making our town her new home.

    I am not the only one who does not want an ex-convict getting too comfortable here.
