  • Compromise in Santa Fe

    Tuesday begins a 60-day session of the New Mexico Legislature, and it promises to be a rowdy one. There’s a contest for president pro tem, between Pete Campos of Las Vegas and Mary Kay Papen of Las Cruces on the Senate side, a power void left in the House with the absence of the late Ben Lujan, and a governor who is already putting on the gloves to fight for her proposed budget. It all promises to be great entertainment for political animals statewide.

  • Editor's Note - ‘Water wars’

    Last week it was reported that Texas is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to force New Mexico to share more water from the Rio Grande. Texas officials are accusing New Mexico of usurping a 2008 water-sharing agreement by pulling water out of the river before it gets to their state, and New Mexico Attorney General Gary King has countered that the agreement is unfair and that the Texans’ move is “tantamount to extortion.”

  • Panthers prevail in a thriller

    Pecos hasn’t been in a whole lot of close games while building a 12-1 record this boys’ basketball season.

    But you‘d have thought otherwise based on how well the Panthers thrived in crunch time Friday night, scoring seven of the last nine points to pull out a 76-71 triumph over Robertson.

    Joe Mascareñas had just tied up the game at 69 with a hard drive to the bucket when Pecos’ Paul C de Baca zipped out to the left wing and popped a three-pointer to regain control for the visitors.

  • RHS girls floor Bernalillo

    Six Lady Cardinals scored over the final eight minutes Thursday, part of a 16-9 fourth quarter that wrapped up Robertson’s 55-42 home win over Bernalillo.

    The score was just 39-33 going into the quarter, but Abbey Bradley got a hoop and Heather Aragon nailed a three-pointer before Chaylene Sena made two foul shots to balloon the Lady Card lead to 13 points.

    Bernalillo spotted the first four points but made a game of it up until the final period.

  • No. 25 Skyhawks fly past Cowboys

    DURANGO, Colo. — The NMHU men’s basketball team fell to the NCAA Division II 25th ranked Fort Lewis College 81-60 on Friday night.  

    NMHU and coach Joe Harge fell to 5-8 overall and 3-6 in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play.

    The Cowboys jumped out to a three-point lead at 5-2 and were able to keep in front for several minutes. But the Skyhawks (10-1, 7-1) regained the momentum and quickly turned the game in their favor, going up 10-9 with 15:18 left in the first half.

  • Turnovers hurt as Cowgirls lose sixth in a row

    DURANGO, Colo. — Watching its losing skid hit six, the NMHU women’s basketball team struggled on the road in a 78-58 setback Friday at Fort Lewis.

    Highlands, led by coach Tiffany Darling, fell to a 3-6 record in the RMAC and 3-10 in overall play. FLC is 6-6, 5-3.

    Twenty-seven turnovers hampered the Cowgirl effort.

    The Cowgirls took the initial 4-0 lead, but the Skyhawks quickly regrouped and began to take control of the game.  Fort Lewis went on a 7-0 run and looked to have found a good rhythm early.

  • NMHU wrestling off to strong start

    Poor driving conditions due to snow and ice were blamed for the postponement of Friday night’s scheduled dual meet between host New Mexico Highlands and Adams State.

    The Grizzlies are ranked No. 16 in NCAA Division II college wrestling, according to the latest poll.

    No make-up date had been named as of press time.

    Highlands was scheduled to compete against Air Force on Sunday in Colorado Springs. That dual was to take place after this issue went to press.
