  • Work of Art: Tío Juan rescued us

    When people my age were in school, the word processor consisted of 1) a pencil and 2) a piece of paper. Just like today’s computers and calculators, our tools of the ‘50s also had an “enter” and a “delete” function. They’re called lead and erasers.

    When my sister, Bingy, and I were at Immaculate Conception School, we often shared a teacher, Sister Mary Matematica Primera, who dreamed nightly about the amount of arithmetic homework she was about to pile on.

  • Cards, Dons drop football openers

    Robertson’s offense remains a work in progress, and the Portales Rams took advantage of that fact Friday night, doubling up the Cardinals 26-13 at Blackwater Draw.

    Meanwhile, back in the Meadow City, Clayton defeated West Las Vegas 45-20 in another opener for this prep football season.

    In each case, the competition was considerable. Portales is among the top-ranked teams in Class 4A along with the Cardinals. Clayton’s Yellowjackets have been to the Class 3A state final the last two years, winning in 2013.

  • Lady Cards 2nd, Dons 4th in Española

    The course was a thing of beauty, and so were several performances by some Meadow City distance runners in this past weekend’s Del Valdez Invitational at Black Mesa Golf Course near Española.

    Robertson’s girls came away with a second-place finish in their race, led by Anabella Miller (20:19), Makayla Quintana (20:29) and Morgan Diefendorf (20:47), who placed second, third and fifth, respectively.
