  • RHS reaps All-State soccer acclaim

    Robertson High sophomore forward Caitlin Diefendorf led a list of 10 local athletes honored on All-State soccer teams recognized by New Mexico High School Soccer Coaches Association.

    Over the past couple years, Diefendorf has emerged as a prolific scorer for the Lady Cardinals, helping lead a run to the state quarterfinals last fall under longtime mentor Ray Parks and the state semifinals this past month with coach Ian Williamson.

  • Cardinals, Warriors eye playoff rematch

    The last time Robertson and Ruidoso met on a football field, there wasn’t all that much separating them on the gridiron or on the scoreboard, never mind their rankings.

    In fact, the Cardinals led that game in the fourth quarter, albeit briefly, thanks to a fumble return touchdown that made it 21-18 Robertson.

    But the Warriors went on to score the next eight points and took a 26-21 verdict Oct. 19 at Cardinal Stadium.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - The things I’m thankful for

    My fun father used to tell us kids there was a dodo bird that flew backwards to see where he had been. Of course, we looked for that odd bird, and we never did see one. I did tell sweet brother Bill I thought I’d seen  one, in hopes he’d quit pestering me and spend his idle time looking for oddball birds.

    Oh, yes, I got away with a lot there for a while, just because I was two years older than Bill.

    And now as this column hits our print media, I look on yet another memorable  Thanksgiving and recount the many blessings we all have here.

    Proponent: Groundwater won’t be harmed

  • Ex-daycare owner pleads in sex case

    The former daycare center owner charged with molesting two of the children who attended his facility has pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal sexual contact of a minor.

    Under the terms of the plea agreement, Edward Quintana, 72, of the 2500 block of Montezuma Street, will get five years of supervised probation and have to register as a sex offender. The agreement gives the judge the authority to impose a deferred or suspended sentence. Quintana must also stay away from his victims.

  • A helping hand - Providing a bed and a hot meal

    Amelie-Sophie Vavrovsky spent a few extra hours away from studying for tests and doing homework last week.

  • El Sombrero continues tradition

    El Sombrero Restaurant is once again opening its doors to the community and offering a free turkey meal with all the fixings on Thanksgiving.

    But there will be one small change this year: No carry-out orders will be allowed.

    The local restaurant, located at 825 Mills Ave. has been providing the hot turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and stuffing for starters meal for residents and visitors free of charge on Thanksgiving since 1996.

    Victor Ramirez, son of restaurant’s owner Helen Rivera-Gonzales, said providing the meal is a family tradition.
