  • New coach wants to re-energize program

    Garett Williams has been around football for some time now.

    Now, he wants to cut his own niche.

    Williams was hired Thursday to take over the Los Alamos Hilltopper football program. He is replacing Bob Scott, who racked up a school record 124 wins in his

    20 seasons of guiding the Hilltoppers.

  • AP-GfK Poll: Americans disfavor for health care bill grows more intense

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Opposition to President Barack Obama's health care law jumped after he signed it — a clear indication his victory could become a liability for Democrats in this fall's elections.

    A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds Americans oppose the health care remake 50 percent to 39 percent. Before a divided Congress finally passed the bill and Obama signed it at a jubilant White House ceremony last month, public opinion was about evenly split. Another 10 percent of Americans say they are neutral.

  • UPDATE: Williams named head football coach

  • Delving further into the start of existence

    It’s completely possible to exist for others before we even exist for ourselves.

    In a way, this is obvious. For instance, my mother and grandmother have memories of me as an infant, memories of which I am a major part but yet I can’t remember at all.

    My grandma, several times, has recalled the first time she held me, and how I looked right into her eyes “as though (I) were thinking.” In contrast, one of my mom’s favorite stories involves a time I threw up in her mouth.
