    ALBUQUERQUE—  PNM Resources Inc. plans to move ahead with the installation of federally required pollution controls at a coal-fired power plant in northwestern New Mexico that serves more than 2 million customers in the Southwest.

    In 1962
    Tuesday, Dec. 4 — The closing of some sawmills in the Las Vegas area trimmed 100 from the enrollment rolls during November where the number of jobs is now 7,000, said Edward V. Balcomb, executive director of the Employment Security Commission. However, remaining projects in the area are expected to remain stable. Forty-five have been hired by the U.S. Forest Service under the Public Works Act, and more hiring is anticipated after Jan. 1.

  • Lesson about nature
  • Heat your home safely

    Tragedy often strikes unexpectedly, as was the case last week when 46-year-old Sonia Baca, a mother of three, got caught in a home fire at Enchanted Hills Mobile Home Park in northern Las Vegas.

    She died in the fire early Wednesday morning after helping her 14-year-old daughter get out. An account has been set up at the State Employees Credit Union, named “Memorial Fund for Sonia Baca and Kids,” to financially help the family through the loss.

    Our heart goes out to the family — especially to her children.

  • Editor's Note - Mixing water and oil

    The other day I overheard a man and a woman talking about the water situation in Las Vegas.

    The man asked the woman, what if the city runs out of water, and she said she’d move to her family ranch.

    He replied that he’d do the same, then went into some detail as to the water he has on and under his land.

    Then their discussion turned to the problem such a move would cause, including how expensive it would be to get to and from work if living at their ranches.

  • Cowgirls earn first win of season

    New Mexico Highlands emerged victorious from a nip-and-tuck battle with Colorado Christian for an 87-83 women’s basketball verdict on Friday evening at the Wilson Complex.

    The Cowgirls’ win snapped a four-game drought to open their season. And it came at a good time, the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference opener against a pretty solid CCU squad that had sported the second-best record in the league going into the weekend.
