  • Another Perspective - Oil and gas cost and enforcement issues

    Editor’s Note: This is the second in a series of columns addressing issues associated with oil and gas development in San Miguel County. The articles were written by participants in PROTECT San Miguel county, a local all-volunteer grass-roots organization. The group has been working with the county’s oil and gas task force for three years, has toured several existing oil and gas producing facilities, and has been collecting extensive research on the issues.

    “I asked our guys if we wanted to walk him or not,” said WLV head coach Ryan Gabaldon.

    Ultimately, the Dons agreed they wanted to take their chances and pitch to Tafoya, who was coming off a career performance — three home runs, including a walk-off grand slam — against Pojoaque a few days earlier.
