They were almost right, when Robin Dano found Jason Boggs, with one second left, on a 43-yard touchdown pass that pulled the Rebels to within one with the conversion pending. Sonora had different plans.

Sonora (2-0), ranked seventh in the county, had a hard time moving the ball in the first half; the Cavalier defense held the Raiders to 78 yards in total offense.

As the new Mexican consul in Los Angeles, David Figueroa has a keen appreciation of what's required to be a public official in his country. When Figueroa was mayor of the border town of Agua Prieta, Sonora, his father was shot four times on Mother's Day 2006. Several months later, after Figueroa became a congressman, he remembers driving from an airport near Mexico City and seeing bright flashes as two dozen gunshots ripped through his car. He was hit in the leg; another bullet grazed his forehead.

With an escort of 60 officers with assault rifles, a convoy heads off to deliver pensions to people caught behind the siege line as one drug cartel tries to wait out another in a sinister battle for scores of human and drug trafficking routes into Arizona. The police chiefs met in the dusty plaza with a federal official clutching a black bag filled with pesos: $40,000 in government pensions for the senior citizens living in the pueblos of the nearby foothills. A convoy of seven vehicles rumbled into the plaza, the trucks squeezing between taco and T-shirt vendors who gawked at the 60 or so federal and state police officers toting assault rifles.

The genetic signature of canine slobber on a bait bag of chicken scraps and a fuzzy photograph from a motion-sensitive camera north of Yosemite National Park have confirmed the existence of a red fox, thought to have been all but wiped out, the U.S. Forest Service announced last week. "The last known sighting of a Sierra Nevada red fox in the Sonora Pass area was some time in the 1920s," said Mike Crawley, Bridgeport District ranger. "Needless to say, we are quite surprised and excited by this find.

A flamboyant farm-workers organizer who called himself a modern-day Emiliano Zapata has been slain in a brazen ambush that also killed 14 members of his family and staff, officials said Saturday. Prosecutors in the border state of Sonora, where the slayings occurred, said they were investigating a number of possible motives. Sonora, like much of Mexico, has been hit by a wave of killings tied to drug-trafficking gangs. The union leader, Margarito Montes Parra, was killed in the southern part of the state that borders Sinaloa, a major center for the production and transport of marijuana and heroin.

A shootout between authorities and gunmen in central Mexico left at least 12 people dead Friday, hours after a congressional candidate survived an apparent assassination attempt in the northern part of the country. The incidents underscored the broad reach of violence plaguing Mexico amid a government crackdown on drug traffickers and signs that gangs have sought to infiltrate local politics.
