    Pair of antelopes shot, left to rot

    ESTANCIA – The Department of Game and Fish would like to make the holidays a lot less merry for whoever shot two pronghorn antelope and left them to rot in a field near Estancia.
    Conservation officer John Martsh said the antelope were killed sometime between 10 a.m.-12:45 p.m. Dec. 15, off N.M. 542 south of Estancia. There was no hunting season in progress at the time.
    “It appears that someone drove up, shot the antelope and then left the scene in a hurry to prevent being caught,” Martsh said.
    A $350 reward is being offered for information that leads to charges being filed in connection with the case. Call 800-432-4263 to report any information.

     

  • Mike Locksley hired at Maryland

    COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Maryland football coach Randy Edsall has hired Mike Locksley as his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
    Locksley takes over for Gary Crowton, who lasted only one season.
    The 41-year-old Locksley returns to Maryland after previously serving as an assistant coach from 1998-2002 under Ralph Friedgen. He most recently spent two-plus years as the head coach at New Mexico after a four-year run as offensive coordinator at Illinois.
    During his first stint at Maryland, Locksley coached running backs and was the recruiting coordinator for five years.

  • Fishing report 12-23-11

    Northwest

    Animas River: The flow is 247 cfs. Fishing is reported as slow due to weather and a lack of activity from the fish and anglers.
    Chama River: No read on flow due to ice on the upper stretches. Below El Vado Lake the flow is 186 cfs and the flow below Abiquiu Lake is 388 cfs. The Chama below El Vado dam has the most consistent good fishing on the Chama. The stretch downstream of the village of Chama into El Vado reservoir is slowing down. The release out of El Vado is murky but fishable. The stretch below Abiquiu Dam is fishing good and the water clarity is getting better.

  • Colo. artist creates 'Saint...

    SANTA FE (AP) — A Colorado artist known for her Santa Fe’s Spanish Market awards has created a new “saint” on her latest retablo - Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.
    Catherine Robles Shaw of Nederland, Colo., recently created the $195 Tebow retablo using an image of the Broncos quarterback kneeling down in his well-known “Tebowing” prayer pose.
    Retablos are traditional Latino devotional painting that use iconography from the Catholic church.
    Shaw says her Tebow boards, made of dirt and tree bark, aren’t much different from her other retablos that feature San Pascual, the patron saint of cooking, or San Ysidro, patron of farmers.

  • Buckeye football hit with NCAA...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State players broke the rules and got to play in the Sugar Bowl anyway. Jim Tressel knew about infractions and let it all happen.
    Now the Buckeyes and new coach Urban Meyer will pay for it next season.
    The NCAA hit Ohio State with a one-year bowl ban and additional penalties Tuesday for violations that started with eight players taking a total of $14,000 in cash and tattoos in exchange for jerseys, rings and other Buckeyes memorabilia.

  • LA hosts Taos, will hit the road...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team will have its final home game tonight before a lengthy home ice hiatus.
    The Hilltoppers will take on an old rival, the Taos Ice Tigers, at the Los Alamos County Ice Rink. That game is scheduled for 7:45 p.m.
    Following that contest, the Hilltoppers will be out of town for over a month. They travel to the Mid-Season Showcase Tournament, hosted by Taos Jan. 6-8, then have a three-game set in Taos Jan. 21-22. Los Alamos won’t be back home until Jan. 27.
    Los Alamos took a loss and a tie last week. It finished knotted up with Eldorado, 1-1, at home last week, then dropped a 3-2 decision at Santa Fe.
    For Santa Fe’s Blue Jackets, the victory was their first of the season in 12 tries.

  • Broncos knock off Toppers at home

    The problems the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team needed to fix to keep pace with one of the top programs in the state didn’t get fixed Wednesday night.
    For its previous two games, Los Alamos struggled keeping a handle on the ball and varying up its offense from an almost complete inside shooting game. Los Alamos knew full well going into Wednesday’s contest it would need to do both.
    Unfortunately for the Hilltoppers, they weren’t able to accomplish either.

  • Toppers, Broncos to clash in big...

    There isn’t much going on at Los Alamos High School just a few days before Christmas.
    However, anytime the Kirtland Central Broncos girls basketball team rolls into town, that’s definitely something.
    The Los Alamos Hiltoppers will host the Broncos tonight. Tip-off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
    The Broncos are, by most measurable standards, the most successful girls basketball program in state history. The Broncos own a record for both the number of state championship games won (17) and, a far more dubious honor, state championship games lost (10), the most recent of which occurred last season when they were upset by the Gallup Bengals.
    Nevertheless, Kirtland Central is the No. 1-ranked team in Class 4A heading into tonight’s game.
