  • Editor's Note - Home and family

    Eight years.

    That’s how long I’ve lived in Las Vegas. Long enough to have become familiar with the community and its people, but not nearly long enough to become anything other than an outsider, at least to some people.

    NMHU reports

    New Mexico Highlands University cross country standout Ismael Samano capped his collegiate career with a 172nd place finish at the 2012 NCAA Division II Cross Country Championships held Saturday in Joplin, Mo.

    Samano entered the race with high hopes of an All-American (top 40) finish after qualifying from the tough Central Region two weeks ago.

    “There are eight regions, “ noted NMHU coach Bob DeVries, “but the Central took 11 of the top 25 and 15 of the All-American spots in the race.”

    Five Cowboys finished in double figures on Saturday, and all 12 who got playing time contributed to the victory.

  • Redbirds rally past Rams

    Overcoming a two-touchdown deficit in the state football playoffs is just part of the story for Robertson in its 40-26 triumph over visiting Portales on a cool Saturday afternoon at Cardinal Stadium.

    The Cardinals (7-4) also found a way to overcome its penchant for incurring expensive penalties on both sides of the ball. And they overcame less-than-optimal health across the roster, finding a way to win against an improved Rams outfit with its own injury issues.

  • Where’s Cindy?

    Their emotions get more and more frayed as each day passes without knowing, their minds stuck in a cruel tug of war between hoping that she’s still alive and the scenario they know deep in their hearts is more likely.

    But they remain strong, fighting each  day to find out what happened to her. And they pray “that she’s not suffering,” says cousin Evelyn Garcia,  “and that she comes home,” adds Deddie Rivera, the missing woman’s aunt. “If she’s dead, let us bury her.”
