  • Palabras Pintorescas - Stopping Nancy in her horseshoe tracks

    The very large windows in my house give me a vantage point. I can really just watch the world go by, and by some standards that might be judged as a big waste of time.

    One day last week I watched our now retired Betsy mare do her darndest to rearrange a particular small area of her pasture so she could roll in comfort. She pawed the snow and underlying grass in a circle, spinning and turning until she thought she had it about right. She used her right front hoof for this. Then she carefully lay down in this circle and rolled and rolled.

  • Area man shot in face

    A 32-year-old Las Vegas man was arrested Monday on a charge of attempted murder after police say he fired a shotgun into a residence, striking a victim in the head and chest area.

    Paul Martinez, who lives on the 900 block of E. Prince Street, told police the shotgun went off accidentally, though the victim and another witness told authorities that he had been harassing them.

    Martinez was booked into the San Miguel County Detention Center. Magistrate Chris Najar set his bond at $100,000 cash.

  • Weekend Blaze - Litherlands rescued from home

    Crystal Lujan was speaking to Evelyn Ortega, the co-owner of Legers Package Liquor Store, a little before midnight on Saturday when she saw flames shooting out of the Litherland home on Lee Drive.

    “I turned around, and I saw a big flame, and I was like, ‘Oh my God. We have a fire,’” Lujan said.

    Ortega turned around, and when she saw the flames coming out of the Litherlands’ garage, she quickly realized that the Litherlands would likely have trouble getting out of their burning home because of their age.

  • Temper lands man in legal trouble

    A Las Vegas man who was already in trouble for allegedly violating his probation got himself in even deeper trouble last week.

    The state Corrections Department says Bobby Lucero, 26, of the 100 block of Alamo Street, lost control and began kicking and overturning his probation officer’s desk when she told him he was being sent back to jail.
