  • Stop sexual assault

    The following editorial was published in the Des Moines (Iowa) Register on April 13.

    All of us have so much to learn about sexual assault on college campuses. Why are complaints rising? How can we prevent the crimes? Just how big is the problem?

  • Work of Art: Remember old OLOS bulletins?

    A friend made a habit of collecting and saving Sunday bulletins for Our Lady of Sorrows Sunday church services.

    Considering the number of years represented in these bulletins, it’s safe to say she was a faithful church member. Most of the bulletins that she passed on to me date back to the 1960s, and all contain a historical photo on the cover and list a slew of activities: wedding banns, a bingo prize of $230, baptisms and special events. The pastor at that time was the Rev. James T. Burke.

  • East-West, the sequels

    The battle for Cinder Road took a dramatic turn on Saturday.

    West Las Vegas (11-6-1, 5-2-1) stayed close to St. Mike’s (11-7, 4-1) in the District 2-4A standings, sweeping Robertson 8-4 and 8-2 on the Cardinals’ home field.

    That came after the Redbirds had won at West on April 4.

    Robertson (14-8, 3-5) was to try for payback at Taos on Tuesday while West was at Pojoaque Valley.

    Antonio Bustamante hit 2 for 3 and scored twice to highlight West’s effort in game one Saturday.

  • Luna sluggers go long vs. Clarendon

    Luna Community College’s Victoria Cordova waited on the right pitch to hit.

    Then, when it came, she sent the softball to the cheap seats.

    Cordova’s sixth-inning slam put an exclamation point on Luna’s eventual 11-7 win over Clarendon (Texas) College in the second game of a four-game set Friday evening at WLV Field. Earlier, LCC’s Anastacia Martinez had belted an RBI double to gain some crucial insurance as Clarendon began to muster a rally.

  • Rainiers cool off Isotope bats

    A trek to the Pacific Northwest saw the Isotopes’ recent offensive proficiency go south.

    Albuquerque (6-6) lost  4-3 Monday at Tacoma, ending a winless series with the Rainiers. As a result, the Isotopes slipped a game behind the Las Vegas 51s for first place in the division.

    The Topes are back at The Lab for an eight-night homestand against Reno and Tacoma.

    Albuquerque led 3-1 midway through the sixth inning Monday, but D.J. Peterson hit a two-run bomb, and Ben Gamel chased that with a solo shot to right.
