  • Help make history again

    Four years ago, at this pre-election moment and in this exact space, we spoke in awe of the presidential election year that was about to conclude. Indeed, 2008 was a year in which the first viable female candidate for president was narrowly bested by the first African-American candidate with a chance to win, while on the other side of the political fence we witnessed the rebirth of a politician whose candidacy had months earlier been declared dead. Then there were the issues — an incredibly unpopular war in Iraq and an economy in peril. We were indeed on the cusp of history.

  • Editor's Note - A regional alliance

    It seems the idea of a broader, regional approach to water issues in northeastern New Mexico gained some traction last week with a regional water symposium at Luna Community College. There’s another meeting being planned in an attempt to turn the talk into action.

  • No. 1 Wolves hold off NMHU

    The No. 1 ranked team in NCAA Division II football, Colorado State-Pueblo survived a stiff challenge from New Mexico Highlands, winning 31-17 Saturday before a packed Thunderbowl in Pueblo, Colo.

    CSUP (10-0, 8-0) clinched at least a share of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference title with the win. The only thing that would prevent the ThunderWolves from winning it outright would be an unlikely loss at Western State (1-8) coupled with a Chadron State win this coming weekend, the last of the regular season.

    NMHU is 7-3 and 6-2.

  • Up that hill - Lady Cards race to district title; state meet looms

    Different course.

    Same brutal hill.

    Rodriguez Park served as the picturesque backdrop for Saturday morning’s District 2-3A cross country championships, but with the brutal hill better known as The Eliminator mocking them, the runners were taking on — not taking in — the scenery.

    Some fared better than others in doing so. Robertson’s girls, getting a strong push from dueling leaders Erica Herrera and Karlene Montaño, raced to a team title.

  • Cowboys to visit Lobos Monday

    NMHU men’s basketball will get a little statewide exposure Monday as head coach Joe Harge’s Cowboys take on the University of New Mexico Lobos in The Pit.

    An exhibition game that serves as the final tune-up before the regular season for both sides, Monday’s contest tips off at 7 p.m.

    Tickets ($17 and up) are available at the UNM box office.
