  • Luna deserves better

    From its modest beginnings as Luna Vocational-Technical Institute to its morphing into a bona fide community college, Luna has meant a lot to the area.

    With its nursing and dental programs, the school has sent out scores of licensed practical nurses and registered nurses who populate doctors’ offices in this area and beyond. Similar boasts can be made about the dental program.

    Luna has filled numerous gaps in the areas of vocational training, auto mechanics, wood-working, the liberal arts and sciences.

  • Yara nets two in loss

    In terms of firepower on the field, Amber Yara had plenty to say Saturday for the Robertson girls’ soccer team.
    But the Belen Eagles had even more to scream about in reply.

    Belen, one of the better programs in Class 4A, doubled up the visiting Lady Cardinals by a 6-3 count to spoil Robertson’s season opener.

    Yara had a part in all three Robertson scores, putting two in the back of the net herself and assisting teammate Caitlin Diefendorf on another RHS goal.
