  • 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.

  • Remembering Alani - Life returning to normal for family

    Alani Tuineau was the type of man who lived each day as though it might be his last, and he lived by the mantra “make it right.”

  • 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.

  • Threat bumps up security at schools

  • Couple dies hours apart

    The Associated Press

    MEYERSDALE, Pa.  — Barry Werner says his mother always put his father first during their 65-year marriage, but that changed earlier this week.

    On Tuesday, LaVerne Werner died at the southwestern Pennsylvania personal care home. About 12 hours later, Robert Werner followed.

    “They did everything together,” Werner told the Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown. “They didn’t always agree with each other, but if one went, the other was going to follow soon.”
