    Mora County is the place to be for some music, food, and plenty of fun as summer comes to a close. In Cleveland, just two miles north of Mora off NM 518, sits a tranquil park that will be booming with action during the Cleveland Millfest. The fest takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

  • Dispatch New Mexico - Roswell and its crime wave

    ROSWELL — There’s a big story here, with tragic and unfortunate legs. It’s the rash of high-profile homicides that’s gripping this city of 50,000 people.

    The latest victims, as of this writing, are three people who may have been gunned down while sleeping. Since I came to the Daily Record last May, we’ve had a shootout in a Taco Bell parking lot (which left one man dead and an officer injured), among other shootings. The Wild West is running rampant in Roswell these days.

  • Going toe to toe with the champs

    Continuing a brutal early schedule, the Robertson boys’ soccer team (0-3) ran into the buzz saw of defending Class 5A state champion Capital on Tuesday evening, falling 9-0.

    Junior Victor Lozoya scored four goals and added two assists for the Jaguars, who are off to a 4-0 start. Three of Lozoya’s scores came in the first half.

    Senior Alexis Romo also recorded a hat trick for Capital, and he and Lozoya combined for the first six goals. Romo had one assist.

    Rene Ortiz and Eric Oquedo tallied one goal apiece to round out the scoring.

  • Lady Dons rock Raton

    A full lineup translated into high-octane offense Tuesday night for the West Las Vegas volleyball team in a 3-0 romp against visiting Raton.

    The Lady Dons (2-0) won 25-6, 25-17, 25-5 against their former district rivals, now in Class 3A.

    Kyanna Spaulding’s return — and her addition to the frontcourt rotation — was a nice success for West. Spaulding led all players with 11 kills. Reyna Trujillo (nine), Jenika Padilla (eight) and Jaylen Gutierrez (seven) rounded out a balanced attack for the Lady Dons.

  • Man charged in May death

    Three months after a Las Vegas man died in an Albuquerque hospital from injuries sustained in a fight outside a local Allsup’s, an Anton Chico man has been charged with killing him.

    Las Vegas police obtained an arrest warrant last Thursday charging 43-year old Robert Saiz with voluntary manslaughter, a third-degree felony. Saiz, who resides on Mescalero Drive in Anton Chico, was arrested Saturday and was being held at the San Miguel County Detention Center in lieu of a $200,000 bond.
