  • Baseball: LA comes back from 4 down to win

    ESPAÑOLA — Once more, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team pulled off a comeback in a big district game, although its comeback started a little earlier than usual.

    The Hilltoppers took on the Española Valley Sundevils Wednesday and once again fell behind early in the contest.

    However, the Hilltoppers strung together four hits and a walk to open the third inning and get right back into Wednesday’s ballgame.

  • Vandalism shuts down Pojoaque High School for two days

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Vandals set fires and torched furniture inside Pojoaque High School.

    The fires set off the school's sprinkler system and that flooded a building for more than six hours.

    Damage forced a two-day shutdown of the school, which isn't scheduled to resume classes until Friday.

    A smoke alarm went off. However, authorities say it didn't alert fire dispatchers, allowing the sprinklers to run all night, dumping thousands of gallons of water.

  • Erickson is top predictor Tuesday

    A few runners went the extra mile at this week’s Atomic City Roadrunners’ pace race, although they didn’t mean to.

    This week’s pace race was held Tuesday at Big Rock Loop. In all, 19 runners took part in the run.

    Because of some confusion over the race’s pavement markings, several runners took a wrong turn and ended up running approximately one extra mile.

  • Judge: Fraud can't apply retroactively

    SANTA FE  — A judge has tossed out a whistleblower lawsuit seeking to recover hundreds of millions of dollars for the state because of alleged fraud and a “pay-to-play” scheme involving public investments.

    In a decision issued Wednesday, District Judge Stephen Pfeffer invalidated portions of a law that allows citizens to bring lawsuits on behalf of the state to recover triple damages.

    The judge said it’s unconstitutional to apply the law and its sanctions to activities that took place before the statute went into effect in July 2007.
