  • Obama, time for ‘drama’

    While we’ve appreciated “no drama Obama” in times past, we were glad to see the president’s demeanor rise to a passionate level last Thursday when he gave his jobs speech.

  • NMHU smashes past Ags 60-14

    With quarterback Emmanuel Lewis operating behind an improved offensive line, the New Mexico Highlands Cowboys ran their record to 2-0 with a 60-14 defeat of Oklahoma Panhandle State on Saturday night at Perkins Stadium.

    Lewis passed for 198 first-half yards before Harold Mobley took over and kept the offense clicking. The Cowboys generated 309 net yards rushing, most in the second half.

  • Lions roar at Cards’ expense

    Class 2A or not, Santa Rosa looked every bit the state championship team on Friday night at Cardinal Stadium, using its fabled single-wing offense to shred Robertson 46-20.

    The Lions (2-1) exploited an early turnover, grabbing an RHS fumble at the RHS 17 and turning it into a rushing touchdown by Timothy Valverde and a 6-0 edge with 7:00 left in the first.

    Dalan Abreu’s long kick return put the Cardinals back in business, and a Gerald Maestas-to-Felix Archuleta strike from 6 yards out tied the game.
