  • Relaxed Nadal moves toward another Grand Slam win

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — If Rafael Nadal is getting nervous as he eases closer to winning his fourth consecutive Grand Slam, he sure isn't showing it.

    After his 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 win Thursday over American qualifier Ryan Sweeting, the Spanish star appeared as comfortable talking about his next match — against 18-year-old Australian Bernard Tomic — as he was in beating Sweeting so convincingly.

  • Bears-Packers: Fans say it's the biggest game ever

    CHICAGO (AP) — The Green Bay Packers are headed to town for the NFC championship game and Chicago Bears fans are starting to become, well, a bit unbearable.

    Turn on the radio in Chicago and you'll hear no shortage of jokes about Packers fans, many of which have something to do with low intelligence. There's been plenty of laughs over a Green Bay newspaper headline that read "On To Chicaco." Many more center on the dietary habits of fans north of the "Cheddar Curtain," like this one:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Fewer people applied for unemployment benefits last week, adding to evidence that hiring will pick up this year.

    The Labor Department says the number of people seeking benefits fell by 37,000 to a seasonally adjusted 404,000 for the week ended Jan. 15.

  • Girls basketball: Toppers open 2AAAA play with win

    BERNALILLO — A rough start to Tuesday night’s District 2AAAA-opening game could’ve spelled disaster for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team.
    The Bernalillo Spartans controlled the action throughout the first eight minutes Tuesday night, but the Hilltoppers got things together early in the second quarter and never looked back.
