  • Domestic spying

    The revelation last week that the U.S. government is collecting the phone records of hundreds of millions of Americans and that it also secured a secret court order allowing the National Security Agency and FBI to tap directly into the servers of major U.S. internet companies, including Google and Facebook, is troubling.

  • Dulcey Amargo - The big freeze!

    Even as a child, I looked forward to the warm days of summer. I wasn’t a sedentary child by choice, but a bout with rheumatic fever at about age 6, left me a bit fragile and caused me to be homebound for better than half of my second grade year of school.

    A near-capacity crowd at Saturday night’s Las Vegas Train Robbers game was treated to the sight of “Longmire” actor Lou Diamond Phillips hitting a single off series star Robert Taylor at Rodriguez Park.

  • Zephyrs rally late vs. Isotopes

    Albuquerque Isotopes
    METAIRIE, La. -- Jake Smolinksi doubled in the eighth inning to left field, and when Tony Gwynn, Jr. mishandled the ball, Jordan Brown scored from first base to lift the New Orleans Zephyrs to a 3-2 win over the Albuquerque Isotopes on Saturday night.
     Zephyrs closer Chris Hatcher walked leadoff batter Matt Angle in the ninth, and Dee Gordon bunted him to second base, but Hatcher struck out Justin Sellers and Gwynn to preserve the victory. It was Hatcher’s 19th save, the most in all of minor league baseball.
