    “Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.”
    — President Harry S. Truman

    Those words — chiseled into stone and on display at the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C., — are just as true today as they were when President Truman said them nearly 70 years ago.

  • Birds go to 10-0

    Robertson ran roughshod over crosstown rival West Las Vegas, 41-0, in Saturday’s Vegas Bowl. But the victory was immediately overshadowed by the short-term loss of two key players, who’ll be forced to watch their team’s first playoff game from the sidelines.

    Dominic Lucero and J.R. Gonzalez were both ejected from the game after incurring multiple unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. As part of a New Mexico Activities Association rule, they also have to sit out Robertson’s next game — in this case, a second-round playoff on Nov. 22.

  • Lady Dons rally, win district

    For a while there Saturday night, it looked like the Pojoaque Elkettes of their recent indomitable championship vintage were back in top form at Gillie Lopez Gym.

    Covering the floor defensively with cool efficiency, Pojoaque won the first two sets — 25-21 and 26-24 — against West Las Vegas in the District 2-4A volleyball final.

    But the host Lady Dons not only averted a sweep, they rallied for three straight set victories to win their first district championship in nearly a decade.
