    Indictments handed down for illegal killing

    ALBUQUERQUE – A grand jury has indicted two men and a juvenile male from Rio Rancho on several counts in connection with the illegal killing of five pronghorn antelope Feb. 10 on the King Ranch near Zia Pueblo.
    Michael Yarbrough, 21, Travis Miller, 18, and a 17-year-old are accused of cutting a fence, illegally trespassing on the ranch and shooting two bucks and three doe antelope. The heads of the bucks were removed and all the carcasses were left in a pile to rot. There was no legal hunt occurring at the time.

  • Thompson has best prediction

    Richard Thompson III had the best prediction of the week at the Atomic City Roadrunners’ Pace Race Tuesday night.
    Thompson, on the 1-mile course, finished the Pace Race with an adjusted error of 12 seconds, finishing three seconds ahead of John Rees, the best predictor on the 3-mile course.
    This week’s race was run on Powerline Road, just south of White Rock. In all, 34 participants took part.
    Except for Thompson, all the top predictions came from the long course runners. Isolina Viloria was off by 18 seconds and Alexander Romero was off by 19 seconds.
    Romero was the fastest finisher on the 3-mile course with his time of 21 minutes, 33 seconds. Nikol Strother was the fastest finisher on the 1-mile course (8:09).

  • Bandelier goes into Stage II...

    Stage II restrictions include barring the use of campfires, charcoal fires and puts a damper on smoking in areas other than those specifically designated around the monument.

  • Miami escapes with 100-96 win...

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — LeBron James had received plenty of help from Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, and now he had to finish it on his own.

    With what Wade called the loudest crowd he'd ever heard booing, certain James had just fouled Kevin Durant, the league's MVP walked to the free throw line with 7.1 seconds left and the Miami Heat's huge lead down to two points.

    The guy who has endured too many fourth-quarter failures wasn't letting another NBA Finals game get away.

  • Armstrong faces more doping...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Lance Armstrong is facing more doping allegations just a few months after he thought he had finally put them to rest.

    Although federal investigators in February closed a two-year investigation without bringing criminal charges, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has filed new doping charges that could strip the seven-time Tour de France winner of his victories in cycling's premier race.

    Armstrong insists he is innocent.
