  • Publisher's Note: Family matters

    I come from a family of seven brothers. It was a crowded and rowdy upbringing. No sisters, though a host of spouses would later usher in a more feminine touch to our large and boisterous family.

    We were raised by a dedicated father who instilled in us a sense of humor and values about what’s right and wrong and fair and just, and a caring mother who was stern, loving and strong enough to raise us the right way.

  • Redbirds sweep Meadow City

    Home site advantage was a plus for Robertson High’s track and field teams in the 2011 Meadow City Invitational on a sun-splashed Thursday afternoon at Cardinal Stadium.

    But considering how well both boys’ and girls’ programs have fared thus far this season, being at home was just another opportunity for RHS to showcase its talents.

  • Cowboys slam Regis in opener

    The Cowboys’ leadoff man played leader of the pack Thursday. And the Preseason RMAC Pitcher of the Year had a game that lived up to that billing.

    Right fielder Erik Scott hit four times in five at-bats — including a triple — and scored three times as New Mexico Highlands pummeled host Regis 7-1 in Denver. Thus began the teams’ four-game Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference baseball series in the Mile High City.

  • Shotgun found at school

    Agents with the Region IV Narcotics Task Force discovered a shotgun, ammunition, marijuana and drug paraphernalia inside the trunk of a vehicle in a parking lot on the West Las Vegas High School campus earlier this month, and a student is now facing criminal charges.

  • City making progress on water crisis

    The city of Las Vegas is close to an agreement with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish for an extra 100 acre feet of water to help the city meet its water needs this year and it has asked the U.S. Interior Department for another 500 acre feet of water that the federal agency has in Storrie Lake.
