    MOENCHENGLADBACH, Germany — Abby Wambach sure knows how to deliver.

    A goal, a promise and soon, she hopes, a World Cup title.

    The U.S. women had fans on edge once again until Wambach broke a tense tie with her header off a corner kick in the 79th minute Wednesday. Alex Morgan scored three minutes later to seal a 3-1 semifinal victory over France, and the Americans let loose with a party that carried all the way across the Atlantic Ocean.

    Several West Las Vegas School board members are upset about the delay in the completion of a pre-kindergarten building near Luis Armijo Elementary School, and they weren’t happy last week when the architect asked them for additional funds for the project.

    Javier Ortega of the Ortega-Romero-Rodriguez Architects in Santa Fe notified the board of an approximately $9,000 increase in the cost due to a jump in the gross receipts tax rate and changes that needed to be made on the project.
