  • Battling the blaze - Tres Lagunas fire at 8,660 acres

    Pecos — Gabe Sena likely won’t forget his last finals week at Pecos Middle School anytime soon.  The eighth grade student and his grandparents were evacuated from their home near El Macho Church, north of Pecos on Thursday.

  • East eyeing reduction in force

    Officials from both local school districts plan to cut back on their expenses during the coming fiscal year in hopes of getting off emergency supplemental funding.

    In an effort to pull it off, both school districts have not been filling vacant positions, and West has even eliminated some positions.

    At Las Vegas City Schools, the union is recommending a reduction in force for next school year rather than continuation of furloughs, which results in lower pay for staff.

  • Troubling security lapse

    Two-and-a-half weeks have passed since Robertson High School was vandalized and still no arrests have been made or charges filed against the culprits.
