  • Cops: Church burglar nabbed

    A laptop computer and Blu-ray DVD player, OK. But frozen dinners, oatmeal and SOS pads?

    A 44-year-old Las Vegas man was arrested Monday after police say he broke into the rectory of Our Lady of Sorrows Church on two separate occasions last week and made off with a number of items belonging to the Rev. Douglas Mitchell.

    Both incidents occurred in the early morning hours and in both instances, a priest was sleeping in the residence when the burglaries occurred.

  • Rough Rider Rally - Event is big boost for hotels

    Las Vegas is normally a quiet town with tourists strolling through Plaza Park, but that will change this weekend as thousands of bikers flood into Las Vegas for the eighth annual Rough Rider Motorcycle Rally.

    Hotel and restaurant managers welcome the roar of the iron horses because it typically translates into a major boost to their businesses, and that translates into more gross receipts taxes to pay for things like parks and ball fields. The rally is scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Plaza Park, the heart of the Meadow City.

    City officials are coming under fire for their decision to hold a three-day retreat for the governing body and other city leaders at the Sheraton in Albuquerque, but City Manager Timothy Dodge says the retreat will be well worth it if it succeeds in changing the perception that the organization has of itself.

    The retreat started Tuesday and is slated to end on Thursday. The city estimates that it will be spending $7,500 in travel costs for the 25 participants, and documents provided indicate that the city will spend about $10,700 more to cover the cost of the facilitator.

    SANTA FE — New Mexico Attorney General Gary King told the state’s highest court on Monday that a prohibition on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

  • Barbs fly at Council meeting

    Among the agenda items voted on at Monday’s Council meeting was approval of out of state travel for Councilor Joey Herrera to attend the National Voice of the Hispanic Legal Community in Denver.

    The convention will be held in September and is being put on by the Hispanic National Bar Association.

    Councilor Tonita Gurule-Giron pegged the cost of the trip and of the training session at about $1,500, and she objected, saying that Herrera could receive free training in New Mexico.
