  • Living on wrong side of screen

    There’s something wrong with my wife. Yeah, she’s definitely not normal. I saw her loading the clothes washer and she wasn’t singing. She wasn’t dancing.  She wasn’t even smiling.  In fact, she seemed downright bored.  For some reason, doing the laundry didn’t fulfill a cosmic sense of purpose for her.  Come to think of it, there was no lively background music either.
    We must be using the wrong brand of detergent.

  • LA boys once again upset-minded heading into state

    Whatever pressure there may be heading into the Class AAAA boys cross country meet appears not to be on the Los Alamos Hilltoppers. At least not any external pressure.
    Heading into the Class AAAA championship race, which is scheduled for Saturday at Rio Rancho High School, Los Alamos knows that it’s not expected to win but has enough confidence to pull off what could be another monumental upset.

  • ´Topper girls shooting for record 15th championship

    In girls sports in New Mexico, some programs have shown over the years to be completely dominant.
    Kirtland Central, for example, is one of the premier basketball programs not just in the state, but in the nation, winning 18 state titles. Before that in that same sport, Eldorado was the cream of the state’s crop. Also in the Four Corners area, Piedra Vista is quickly establishing itself as the elite softball program in the state.
    Saturday, Los Alamos can take its place as the pre-eminent power in the history of girls cross country in New Mexico.

  • LA knocks off Farmington to advance to semifinals

    ALBUQUERQUE — It took 153 minutes of regulation play and 20 minutes of overtime play before the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team cracked through the defense of the Farmington Scorpions.

    Shannon Blair tallied the first goal of the season by the Hilltoppers over the Farmington Scorpions late in Thursday’s semifinal round of the Class AAAA state championship tournament.

  • ’Toppers upset Academy, will play St. Pius X tonight

    ALBUQUERQUE — One down, two to go.
    After surviving a wild first half and an equalizing goal midway through the second half, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers scored late in regulation to knock off one of the most dangerous teams in the state to advance to the semifinal round of the state Class AAAA playoffs.
    Los Alamos might have had a flashback to mid-September following the tying goal in the 58th minute by the Albuquerque Academy Chargers, but a 73rd minute goal from Cooper Christensen gave the Hilltoppers the victory.

  • Police wrap up some cases, others are pending

    Los Alamos police have wrapped up a number of cases recently and others are moving forward in the judicial process. The most recent case of note involves Katrina Vigil, 25, and the death of her infant son, Grey Vigil, who was allegedly found in a closet several days after his birth. Vigil gave birth Sept. 24 and did not report it or seek medical care for herself or the newborn, according to reports.

    “Emergency Room doctors at the Los Alamos Medical Center contacted us Tuesday to report a possible child abuse case,” Capt. Randy Foster said at the time.

  • 11-5-10 Bible Answers


    “Halloween was on Sunday this year. That made me wonder again if Christians should celebrate this ‘holiday.’ ” — Chris

    Many Christians do not “celebrate” Halloween as a matter of both faith and conscience.  Adequate biblical justification may be found to justify avoiding this holiday, which has its roots in paganism. Furthermore, Halloween is likely “over the top” in terms of too much money spent and too much focus on the acquisition of tooth-rotting candy.
