  • Just a Thought - I really didn’t say everything I said

    By Rick Kraft

    “Ninety percent of the game is half mental. ”What? That statement doesn’t even make sense. Don’t ask questions, it was said by Yogi Berra!

    This is just one of many quotes of “wisdom” by baseball great Yogi Berra, who apparently wasn’t too bright with numbers.He also once said “90 percent of short putts don’t go in.” Each of these quotes supports the premise that four out of three individuals are poor at fractions!

  • Another perspective - A worthwhile investment

    By Rebecca Latham

    Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to join Gov. Susana Martinez as she delivers an important message across the Land of Enchantment: Tourism is on the rise and is bringing dollars and jobs to New Mexico.

    For the third straight year, New Mexico saw record-breaking tourism growth, with 32.7 million people traveling our state in 2014. That’s 500,000 more visitors than in 2013, a boost that is exposing more people than ever before to our cultural heritage and unparalleled adventure.   

  • Play ball! La Plaza Juniors in SF for regional; three LVLL teams in state Final 4

    Marquisa Montoya’s hustle play — a slide into third base during a recent La Plaza Junior All-Stars practice — turned heroics into heartbreak.

    After getting helped off the field, she soon learned the bad news: two bones in her leg were broken.

    It was a tough break for the youngster and her team, to be sure, particularly with the District 4 tournament looming.

  • Late shift okay; Story goes deep

    Trevor Story smashed two two-run homers late Tuesday night to boost the Albuquerque Isotopes to a 9-4 win at Reno.
    Rain delayed first pitch nearly three hours, causing the game to spill into early Wednesday.

    Twice, Story (3 for 4, one walk, four RBI) gave his side the lead. The first came just seven pitches into the game. Later, after the Aces had surged ahead 4-3, Story’s two-run shot reclaimed control at 5-4 in the top of the fourth.

    Dustin Garneau and Roger Bernadina added solo home runs in the final frame.

  • Wind gets even with Robbers

    Kyal Williams sent his 12th home run of the summer into the night air in Garden City, Kans., but it wasn’t enough to stake the Las Vegas Train Robbers to a win Wednesday. The host Wind strung together eight runs in the three middle innings to take an 8-4 victory.

    Williams finished 2 of 3 with three RBI.

    The Train Robbers (22-35) had opened the season-ending series with a 5-4 win on Tuesday night, ending a season-long eight-game slide.

    Chris Anderson struck out seven and held the Wind to two runs over 7 2/3 innings.

  • Youth soccer making final push for registration

    Recent nationwide enthusiasm over the U.S. women’s national soccer team and its march to a World Cup trophy has officials with the Las Vegas Youth Soccer League hoping locals catch the fever and learn the benefits of their sport.

    Early registration for the league runs through next Friday, July 31. Cost is $60 for the school year, which includes fall and spring seasons, and covers uniform (except shinguards and cleats), insurance and associated costs like field maintenance and referees.
