  • Keep up the momentum

    We applaud the city of Las Vegas for its continued efforts to address the city’s long-standing water problems despite the recent rainstorms that have topped off city reservoirs.

    In past years, our collective concerns about water shortages would fade as soon as we’d get a little moisture. For all of its faults, the current city administration has done a good job of keeping the water problem front and center as it continues to chip away at the problem, bit by bit.

  • Work of Art — Things we wouldn’t know . . .

    A columnist I admired in my early days in journalism was Hal Boyle, who wrote about 7,000 newspaper columns during a long career. He died in 1974 at the age of 64.

    Though he reported from the front lines during World War II, he didn’t limit his topics to war stories: Everything was fair game for the Associated Press writer, who often opened with, “Things a columnist wouldn’t know if he didn’t open his mail.”

  • Grizzlies deal tough shutout

    Adams State managed six shots on goal Sunday afternoon in a defensive gem held in Alamosa, Colo.

    New Mexico Highlands goalkeeper Nikita Rivera stopped five of them.

    Shelby McBain made sure hers was on target.

    McBain’s goal, which came just 7:47 into the match, held up as the game-winner after no other player found the net on either side in a 1-0 tally.

  • MMS sweeps XC titles
  • Cowgirls riding 3-match win streak

    She wasn’t playing blackjack, and she was a long way from Vegas — either one — but Darian Mullen’s 21 proved to be a winning number Saturday night.

    Mullen swatted down 21 kills in a whopping 54 attacks with just six errors for a .278 attack percentage, leading New Mexico Highlands to a 3-2 win at Chadron State this past Saturday in Chadron, Neb.

    The victory extended Highlands’ winning streak to three matches, tying the team’s longest.
