  • Swimming and diving: LA girls win home opener Saturday

    Even some pre-race shuffling prior to Saturday’s 400-yard freestyle relay couldn’t stop the Los Alamos Hilltopper swim teams from picking up six state championship qualifying marks.

    Prior to the relay, the final event of the day, every Los Alamos team was petitioning co-head coach Rusty Bernstein to alter the swimming order. Bernstein acquiesced.

    In the end at the Los Alamos Open, everything turned out just fine.

  • Boys basketball: Toppers down Scorps at home

    Even with his team’s 55-38 victory over the Farmington Scorpions Saturday night, Los Alamos boys basketball head coach Alan Kirk gave his team a lengthy post-game speech.

    The subject: preparation.

    Los Alamos came out flat to start Saturday’s contest at Griffith Gymnasium, possibly the by-product of playing in its third game in five day.

    But Kirk reminded his team that its time to make ready for a big week this week is going to be virtually nonexistent.

  • Wrestling: LA places three in JV bracket

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team pulled down three third-place finishes in the junior varsity bracket of Saturday’s tournament at Del Norte.

    Saturday’s tournament featured some solid competitors from around the Albuquerque area, including La Cueva, Eldorado and Los Lunas.

  • Taking the revenue enhancement route

    SANTA FE — New Mexico voters are smarter than many people think. There has been talk recently that no House member is going to vote for a tax increase in the coming 2010 Legislature because all 70 must stand for reelection next year.

    Essentially they are saying voters won’t stand for a tax increase no matter what the reason. And yet two polls in the past month indicate a majority of registered voters say they support higher taxes to get us through this period of economic crisis.

  • White Rock Presbyterian to lend a hand to parents

    For the third year in a row, White Rock Presbyterian Church will host Sitters for Shoppers from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Dec. 12 at the church.

  • Grappling with the revenue shortfall

    Revenues will be about $10 million less this year and $53 million less than anticipated in 2010, according to a new financial forecast outlined Thursday to the Legislative Finance Committee.

    That drop in revenues translates to a potential $500-$600 million budget gap next year. That’s how much is needed to avoid any cutbacks and to maintain a flat budget of services and programs with no growth.
