  • Work of Art: Let’s all give 110 percent

    They came to play. Well, what else would they have come for, to show off their needlepoint collection? To exchange recipes?

    My addiction to professional sports is limited to watching the Boston Celtics in basketball, the Oakland Raiders in football and whoever is playing in the world series.
    During the time I’ve fed this addiction, I’ve acquired quite an arsenal of sports clichés, metaphors that describe things that are not. But first, a mini-English lesson:

  • Little League all-stars named

    Both of the Meadow City’s Little League organizations have announced lineups of all-star teams representing several age groups.

    All-star district tournaments begin Friday, July 8, in Taos, which takes over hosting duties from Raton. Tournaments will run for a week, with winners advancing to state.
    Locally, most Little League regular seasons have concluded, with the exception of Las Vegas Little League’s Minors Division. That division’s tournament was to crown a champion by Wednesday.

    The all-star lineups are as follows.

  • WLV JV wins in NMHU camp

    West Las Vegas’ junior varsity and Hobbs’ varsity won their respective brackets over the weekend in the inaugural Tiffany Darling High School Basketball Team Camp hosted by the New Mexico Highlands University women’s hoops program.

  • RHS, MMS volleyball meeting set for players

  • City water situation ‘dire’

    One councilman is saying it’s time for the city to implement more drastic water conservation measures, and he’s urging the city to come up with a plan for what to do if the Gallinas River, which provides 90 percent of our drinking water, goes dry.

    “I’m sort of pulling the alarm here,” Councilman Andrew Feldman said. “But in this situation, plan for the worst, hope for the best.”

  • LV Woman charged with fraud

    A 23-year-old Las Vegas woman awaiting trial on an embezzlement charge for allegedly stealing money from a sandwich shop is now accused of taking advantage of an 85-year-old woman with dementia.

    Vanessa De Jesus, of the 700 block of Don Gallegos Circle, was arrested earlier this month and is being held at the San Miguel County Detention Center in lieu of a $6,000 cash-only bond.

    She is charged with fraud of between $500 and $2,500, a fourth-degree felony, and larceny, a petty misdemeanor.
