  • Girls soccer: LA takes Invite crown

    So far, so good.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team didn’t waste much time in getting into the win column, knocking off three Class AAAA teams from District 1 to take the Farmington Invitational team title.

    Los Alamos thumped Piedra Vista in its tournament opener Friday, 3-0, then shut out the Aztec Tigers 1-0 in a nootime game Saturday. In the championship game against the host Farmington Scorpions, the Hilltoppers scored the only goal of the second half to win 2-1 and take the tournament title.

  • Volleyball: Hilltoppers open 2008 Wednesday at St. Pius X

    When the New Mexico High School Coaches Association preseason Class AAAA volleyball poll was released last week, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers were listed in seventh place.

    That’s just fine with Diana Stokes.

    “I hope everyone overlooks us,” said Stokes, the sixth-year head coach of Los Alamos.

    With only two returning starters going into the 2008 season, Stokes may just get her wish from most of AAAA’s competition, except for possibly one team.

  • Girls soccer: Toppers look to get back to playoffs

    Despite plenty of new faces being in new places, the 2008 Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team has high expectations for itself.

    But there’s a big question that will need to be answered during this regular season.

    Los Alamos, which advanced to the 2007 state semifinals, lost three big scoring threats to graduation, including its two point leaders off that team. Desirae Hull, who before getting hurt in the latter half of the season was Class AAAA’s total points leader, and midfielder Sarah Ethridge, the team’s spiritual leader, are both gone.

  • Democratic National Convention kicks off Monday * Top Dems set to speak in Denver

    Late Friday, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois selected Delaware Sen. Joe Biden to be his vice presidential running mate. Many say Biden balances Obama’s relative inexperience in foreign and defense issues.

    Biden, 65, was elected to the Senate at the age of 29 in 1973.

    With the decision of a running mate wrapped up, attention turns to the four-day long 2008 Democratic National Convention beginning Monday at the Pepsi Center in downtown Denver.

  • Capturing a moment in time

    A portrait captures a moment in time that is to be cherished forever. Jennifer Hanson Bartram of Viewfinder Photography hopes to make the details of capturing the moment even better. Bartram took her portrait photography on the road, thus evolving into Viewfinder Traveling Portraits.

    “I wanted to provide a resource for people to get their portraits done in the comfort of their own homes or in front of any of the beautiful vistas in the Los Alamos area,” said Bartram, who has photographed numerous senior pictures with the background locals have grown up with.

  • Bringing history to life

    “I’ve always written,” author Kate Horsley said. She started in the fourth grade, when she wrote the class Christmas poem. Her career took another step when she published her first novel, “Crazy Women,” in 1992.

    Horsley explained while earning her Ph.D. at the University of New Mexico in American studies, she was fascinated with the stories in history and wanted to write about them but in a non-academic way.
