  • RHS girls beat WLV in tourney

    As a bounce-back game, Friday morning’s Capital City Invitational consolation bracket contest worked just fine for the Robertson girls’ basketball team.

    It was only the second loss of the year for the Lady Dons, who’d won their first five games to start the season before Santa Fe High ended the streak 81-62 on Thursday.

    On the same day, RHS lost 56-36 against district foe Taos.

  • Semi-pro baseball on its way

    CORRECTION - The story erroneously reported that the Pecos League, which is looking to bring a baseball team to Las Vegas, is a semi-pro league. In fact, league commissioner Andrew Dunn said it is a professional baseball league.

    Santa Fe has its Fuego and Roswell has its Invaders. This summer, if all goes according to plan, Vegas will have its Train Robbers.

  • L.A. lawyer to draft oil and gas law

    Much to the chagrin of the oil and gas industry, the San Miguel County Commission voted unanimously on Tuesday to approve a professional services agreement with a California attorney to help it draft an oil and gas ordinance.

    The commission has hired Los Angeles planning and zoning attorney Robert H. Freilich to aid in the Herculean task. Freilich helped draft Santa Fe County’s ordinance, which the oil and gas industry has criticized as being much too restrictive, saying that it places high burdens on companies wanting to engage in exploration there.
