  • Sixth straight win for Cowgirl soccer team

    Janelle McGee scored twice and Julissa Rodriguez had one goal and one assist Friday night as Highlands’ women’s soccer team won its sixth straight match, a 3-0 shutout of visiting Colorado-Colorado Springs (7-6, 3-6).

    The Cowgirls ran their record to 8-6 overall and 6-4 in the RMAC.

    The Mountain Lions managed just three shots on goal, and all three were stopped by Bianca Contreres, the third goalkeeper the Cowgirls employed Friday.

  • Alive and digging

    West Las Vegas’ Larrissa Gallegos lunged forward, one arm in front of her, trying to beat the volleyball to the floor without skidding under the net nearby. She managed to do so, rolling in a somersault out of bounds. The ball’s trajectory, meanwhile, carried it up and over the net and somehow down neatly between two Robertson players on the other side.

    Match point. Game over.

  • Pecos’ Varela: Runner-up in Rio

    Pecos’ Antonio Varela tried the big-school race on for size Saturday in Rio Rancho — and almost won the darn thing.

  • County to file more liens

    San Miguel County is getting ready to file another batch of liens against property owners who have run up thousands of dollars of debt in unpaid trash bills.

    The finance department provided commissioners with a 12- page list of property owners who would have liens placed on their properties.

    Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to allow county staff to move forward with the process.

    The list contains 207 names of property owners owing between $1,199 and $1,742. The report states that the accounts have been delinquent since July 2003.

  • Neighbor arrested in theft case

    State Police arrested a Las Vegas man Tuesday in connection with a break-in at his neighbor’s house.

    Johnny Roybal, 31, who lives on Placita del Llano Road, has been charged with retaining stolen property over $250 and possession of drug paraphernalia.

  • County road complaints intensify

    Concerns about poorly maintained roads dominated Tuesday’s San Miguel County Commission meeting, prompting some commissioners to say the county may need to shift more resources to road work when it does its mid-year budget review.

    “Somehow we are not addressing what people want in this county, and they want roads,” said Commissioner Ron Ortega.

    Ortega said the issue has begun to boil over, noting that nine out of every 10 calls he receives from constituents these days are about roads.

    SANTA FE — The state Supreme Court on Wednesday resolved a dispute between Republicans and Democrats by consolidating redistricting lawsuits in Santa Fe and naming a retired judge to handle the cases.

    The court assigned all redistricting lawsuits, including any that may be filed later, to the 1st Judicial District in Santa Fe. It said retired District Court Judge James Hall will preside over the cases.

    In 1911

    Tuesday, Oct. 17 — Last night, while J.A. O’Rourke, proprietor of the Le Roy hotel on Grand Avenue, was sleeping soundly, a robber entered his room and stole a fine gold watch and a sum of money amounting to about $20. This morning the loss was reported to Chief of Police Ben Coles. The chief went over the ground carefully in search of a clue, but nothing that pointed to the identity of the culprit was discovered.
