  • Sleazy tactic crosses line

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from the Providence (R.I) Journal and was originally published Aug. 24.

    Nobody expects a presidential campaign to be conducted by Marquis of Queensbury rules. It has long been clear that there are areas in the backgrounds of both major party candidates that lend themselves to attack advertisements. And there are plenty of issues to be exploited.

    But the ridiculous campaign that the Donald Trump forces have been running about Hillary Clinton’s health is sleazy even by the low standards of politics.

  • Work of Art: What’s so funny?

    I almost got my lights punched out, as a child over something that I swear was unintentional and unexpected.

    You see, my barrio on the upper end of Railroad Avenue was also named Tough Street. It seemed to me, as about a 10-year-old, that the boys in each house got progressively meaner and tougher as one walked along the ascending house numbers.

  • Clutch city - Cards end Estancia’s unbeaten streak; Dons down Clayton on road to open season

    Prep football kicked off this past Friday night with two clutch victories for Robertson and West Las Vegas.

    The Cardinals, ranked as high as No. 1 in Class 4A preseason polls, won a marquee matchup with Class 3A’s top team, two-time defending state champion Estancia, 27-26.

    In doing so, Robertson snapped the visiting Bears’ 17-game winning streak that dated back to November 2014. The Bears went 13-0 last fall.

  • Outlaws defeat Extreme in 9-10 football opener

    On opening day of the Northern New Mexico Children’s Football League, the 9-10 Las Vegas Outlaws stunned the defending 9-10 champion L.A. Extreme 13-6.

    That brought an end to the Extreme’s 12-game winning streak, noted Outlaw coach Carlos Perea.

    “We moved up from the 7-8 division as champions and took out the defending 9-10 champions to send a message we are here to play and represent Las Vegas,” Perea said.

  • RHS boys open with road win

    For the first time in more than six years, the Robertson boys’ soccer team has opened the season with a victory.

    New head coach Bryan Trujillo hopes that’s just a sign of things to come for his young Cardinals.

    Robertson beat Class 5A Moriarty on the road this past Saturday.

    T.J. Trujillo put a couple of highlight-reel-worthy goals on the board against the Pintos. His first was a penalty kick to stake RHS to the early lead. His second, delivered in the second half, came off his left foot and secured a hard-fought win.

  • Isotopes’ Cardullo gets call

    Stephen Cardullo kept working hard and never lost sight of his dream, no matter how improbable.

    On Friday, the dream became reality.

    Cardullo, 28, became the latest Albuquerque Isotope to be called up to the Colorado Rockies. Though he’s played primarily in the outfield this summer, he was tabbed for a start at first base and batted second in the Rockies’ lineup for his Major League Baseball debut at Washington.

    On Monday, he collected his first hit and first run as a major leaguer, helping the Rockies beat the Dodgers.

  • Strong start for runners in Española

    Makayla Quintana picked up where she left off last cross country season, racing to a second-place individual finish in this past weekend’s Del Valdez Invitational hosted by Española Valley.

    The Robertson sophomore crossed the finish line in 21 minutes, 31 seconds, trailing just Elizabeth Reyes of Taos (20:38) and leading the Lady Cardinals to a third-place team finish.
