  • Lopez’s foul shots lift Cowgirls

    Her nickname is “The Silent Assassin,” but Alyssa Lopez was anything but quiet in crunch time on Friday night in Gunnison, Colo.

    Lopez snagged a defensive rebound, drew a foul, then sank two free throws in the closing seconds to lift New Mexico Highlands’ women to a 67-65 triumph at Western State Colorado.

    She finished with a team-high 15 points to go with seven rebounds, three assists and a steal in 37 minutes of work. She was a perfect 8 for 8 at the charity stripe, offsetting a difficult night from the floor (3-for-13 shooting).

    Mora, ranked fourth among Class 2A boys’ teams, improved to 3-1; West, ninth in 3A, fell to 2-1.

    NEW YORK — NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Friday that he is out of ideas how to get negotiations back on track to save the hockey season.

    The Associated Press

    KANSAS CITY, Mo.  — Police released video Friday night that shows officers finding Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher asleep in his car just hours before he killed his girlfriend and later shot himself.

  • Unsafe trench halted city project

    Alarm bells went off last week as city of Las Vegas workers were attempting to locate the source of a large leak at the water treatment plant.
    Crews had to dig to try to get to the leak, but city officials confirm the methods workers were using to mitigate the possibility of a trench collapse were inadequate. When city Utilities Director Ken Garcia arrived at the worksite last Tuesday night, he saw field supervisor John Allemand inside a 9-foot deep trench that hadn’t been properly shored up. It’s unclear if any other city employees had been in the trench.
