  • Brees breaks passing record

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — After Drew Brees broke an NFL passing record that stood for nearly three decades, his teammates called on him to make a speech in the Saints’ locker room.

    “This record isn’t about one person. There might be just one name that goes in ledger under the record, but it’s really about the team,” Brees told his teammates.

  • Head Coach Pushed Turnaround

    First of a series

    There’s very little middle ground in the area of Los Alamos High School football. More years than not, the Hilltoppers are either among the top- or bottom-shelf teams in the state.

    The 2011 season started off shaky but would end up much more stable than most might have imagined early on in the season.

    In just his second year guiding the team, head coach Garett Williams led Los Alamos to a playoff berth. While Los Alamos’ date with Los Lunas in the postseason first round ended in a rout, the program got a much-needed shot in the arm.

    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.
