    Court to wait on marriage ruling

    SANTA FE — New Mexico’s highest court says it won’t issue an immediate decision in a case that could decide whether gay marriage is legal statewide.
    The state Supreme Court will hear two hours of arguments from lawyers in the case on Wednesday.
    The court clerk told lawyers last week that the court won’t make a decision on the day of the hearing but will take the case under consideration.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • East music teacher may leave

    Parents and students at Las Vegas City Schools are worried a loss may soon occur at their school district. During a regular board meeting Thursday evening, music director Martin Sena confirmed he has been offered a music director position at Pecos Schools. He said he has not made the decision on whether to stay with the east side district or go to Pecos.
