  • Isotopes open 10th season at Omaha
    ALBUQUERQUE — To start the 2012 season, the Albuquerque Isotopes will become very familiar with the Omaha Storm Chasers and the Iowa Cubs. But it might take awhile for the Isotopes to get familiar with one another. The Isotopes, Albuquerque’s Triple-A franchise, throw out their first pitch on the road Thursday at Omaha. After an eight-game road swing to open the season, they will be home April 13 for eight games against those same teams. This will be season No. 10 for the Isotopes since making their debut in 2003. Since that time, the Isotopes have had three managers and two parent clubs, including their current Major League Baseball franchise, the Los Angeles Dodgers.
  • Friends recall Micah True: passionate and playful
    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Up mountainsides, through deserts and the wildest of rugged terrain, there was little that could break the serenity or solitude of Micah True as he ran. Only, perhaps, the pounding beat of his heart or the rhythm of his feet as they hit the trail, mile after mile after mile. For True, running — the pure act of traveling relentlessly long distances — was a passion that needed no justification. To those who knew him well, it also brought forth an intense playfulness in the 58-year-old ultra-marathon runner.
