The Modesto Central Catholic football team was hoping for some R&R this weekend - and that's just what it got. Not rest and relaxation, rather senior running backs Rey Vega and Ray Lomas. Neither has committed to college, but both will garner lots of attention after their efforts against Solana Beach Santa Fe Christian in the CIF state championship Division IV bowl game Friday afternoon at Home Depot Center. Vega had 202 yards and four touchdowns in six carries and Lomas added 183 yards and three touchdowns in 16 carries as the Raiders established state bowl records for points scored, total yards, rushing yards and winning margin with their 66-7 victory.

It's a model both visitors and investors may want to consider. The bed Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe (125 Washington Ave., Santa Fe;  988-4900, http://www.hotelchimayo.com ) relishes its connection to the village of the same name 30 miles away.

As our weekwith the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport continues, we've noticed a number of clever little touches that bring additional functionality to an already versatile interior. Underneath the cargo floor in the vehicle's trunk is a series of hidden storage compartments that are great for holding loose objects or keeping valuables out of the way of prying eyes. Another nice trick is there is a dedicated space in the cargo floor to store the retractable cargo cover when you're not using it. This means you always have it on hand, should you need it, and don't have to leave it cluttering up your garage.
