    The Associated Press
    BOSTON — Tuukka Rask watched most of the action at the other end of the ice. And when the Blackhawks did make a late charge, he was ready.
    The Bruins goalie stopped 28 shots for his third career playoff shutout, helping Boston beat Chicago 2-0 on Monday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Stanley Cup finals. After playing four extra periods in the first two games, the Bruins made an early night of it with second-period goals by Daniel Paille and Patrice Bergeron.

  • Work of Art — Just a harmless butt-pat

    Do men give other men friendly butt pats? Of course they do, especially when on the field. Somehow, the baseball field seems to be the most popular butt-patting venue, but you see it on and in football fields, basketball courts and baseball stadiums, whether in or out.

    But not in a courtroom.

  • Threat from activist alleged

  • Luna board seeks to relax nepotism policies

    The Luna Community College Board of Trustees is mulling changes to its nepotism policy that would allow family members of boards members to be hired by the college.

    The current Luna policy, adopted on Nov. 17, 2010, is strict, prohibiting the college from hiring in any capacity a person who is related to a current board member, administrator or employee of the college, except in limited circumstances. Any such employees who worked at Luna prior to the policy being adopted were effectively grandfathered in.

    CIMARRON — A wildfire in northern New Mexico that forced about 100 Boy Scouts to relocate to another camping area has grown to more than 1,000 acres.

    State Forestry officials say the Whites Peak Fire grew Saturday to 1,166 acres — more than 1.7 square miles — and is 10 percent contained.

    The lightning-caused fire began Thursday morning in a remote forested area of private land about 14 miles southwest of Cimarron and 3 miles south of Philmont’s border.

  • Trujillo also seeking post

    The Governor’s Office said Thursday that it had inadvertently left Eddie Trujillo’s name off of the list of people who have applied for the vacant San Miguel County magistrate post.

    Trujillo has served as the city of Las Vegas municipal judge since the early 1990s.

    Nine people have applied for the magistrate post, which has been vacant since Magistrate Philip Romero retired in late April.

    Other candidates are: Christian Montaño, Wilma Brown, Suzanne Gaulin, Eddie Gallegos, Twila Quintana, Ruth Trujillo, Gary Gold and Barbara Casey.
