  • Dons pick up first win, rout Sundevils

    Offense, defense and special teams all looked healthy for West Las Vegas in Friday night’s 40-14 romp against shorthanded Española Valley out of Class 4A.

    Nicholas Maestas and Julian Martinez were among the Dons who shined on defense, holding the Sundevils scoreless until early in the fourth quarter.

    George Martinez and Jordan Lopez, who hooked up for West’s only score in week one vs. Socorro, opened the evening with a 37-yard touchdown strike.

  • Cat scratch fever

    Robertson boys’ basketball coach David Bustos could only watch from the sidelines and pray for the best as his son (and Cardinal hoops standout)

    Justin picked up a botched snap and ran with the football on Friday night.

    Justin, the team’s new punter, glided like a gazelle amid a group of hungry predators and picked up a first down for the Cardinals with a 15-yard gain. The Cardinal Stadium crowd cheered its approval.

    More importantly, as far as his dad was concerned, Justin didn’t get mauled by Lovington’s hulking defense.

  • Area could lose seats in redistricting

    The population declines in San Miguel and Mora counties and its rural neighbors over the last decade are setting the stage for a difficult session for area lawmakers as they head to Santa Fe to redraw legislative boundaries.

    State senate and house districts in this area will need to expand to pick up the necessary population, and there’s even a possibility of area senate and house seats being combined, resulting in a loss of representation in this area.

  • Testimony limited in homicide case

    State Police Agent Paul Chavez will be allowed to testify for the prosecution during Richard Baca’s voluntary manslaughter trial next week. But he won’t be able to testify that the location of one of the casings found at the scene indicates that Baca fired one of the shots while holding the weapon outside his car window.

    District Judge Eugenio Mathis issued his ruling Wednesday after holding an evidentiary hearing on the ejection pattern analysis Chavez used to reach his conclusion.

    Baca is accused of shooting postal carrier Benito Lemos three times.
