  • Another Perspective — Affordable health care for all

    If you have ever felt healthcare was beyond your reach, now is your time.

    If it was too expensive or if you had a medical problem that prevented you from getting insurance, now is your time.

    If you lived in fear of losing all you have because of huge medical bills you couldn’t afford, now is your time.

    Because starting now, New Mexicans have the chance to sign up for health-care through the new Health Insurance Exchange.

    What does this mean for you?

  • Second half dooms Dons at Laguna

    David McGee racked up nearly 300 offensive yards Friday night, leading the Laguna Acoma football team (3-3) to a 46-6 rout of visiting West Las Vegas.

    McGee passed the century mark in rushing yardage by halftime, and he didn’t let up after that.

    Ironically, it was the Dons who led the game early. Anthony Medina, taking a toss from Jose Juan Montaño, finished the visitors’ game-opening drive in the end zone. After a two-point conversion try failed, West Las Vegas led 6-0 with 10:47 left in the first quarter.

  • No. 4 Ruidoso doubles up Cards

    Robertson’s last gasp almost took Ruidoso’s breath away on Friday night.

    With 2:31 left and the host Warriors sitting on a cozy 21-point cushion, they coughed up the ball near midfield.
    Jose Estrada came up with the fumble.

  • Lobos run over Aggies 66-17

    Staff and wire reports

    ALBUQUERQUE — Kasey Carrier rushed for three first-quarter touchdowns to lead New Mexico to a 66-17 victory Saturday over rival New Mexico State.

    Five different Lobos scored on the ground while Carlos Wiggins added a touchdown catch and took a kickoff back for another score as New Mexico (2-3) equaled its highest point total in the series with the Aggies (0-6).

    Carrier finished with 126 yards on 14 carries, and Lobos quarterback Cole Gautsche added 127 yards on 12 carries with one touchdown rushing and one passing.

  • Last-minute drive foiled

    Colorado Mesa stuffed what would’ve been a game-winning drive at its own 3-yard line with 17 seconds left Saturday, sealing a critical victory over New Mexico Highlands, 22-17, before a crowd of 2,000 at Perkins Stadium.

    After falling to 2-3 overall and 1-2 in league play, the Cowboys and head coach Eric Young now face an uphill battle in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference football chase.

    NMHU will play at Western State on Saturday in Gunnison, Colo., then return to the Perk to host Adams State for homecoming on Oct. 19.

    Highlands’ lead runners —Henrique Chavez on the men’s side and Marie-Josiane Ohoueu on the women’s — both cracked the 60s in placing.

  • Alleged killer to stand trial

    A prosecution witness testified Wednesday that Joseph “Wicked” Montoya asked for help killing Angel Arroyo minutes before shooting the father of two in the head.

    It was the early morning hours of May 18, and a number of people were at a party at a second-floor apartment on 12th Street and San Francisco, across the street from the New Mexico Highlands University daycare center. Those at the party were drinking and taking hits of meth, according to testimony presented Wednesday during Montoya’s preliminary hearing in San Miguel County Magistrate Court.

  • Bear’s-eye view: Mother, cubs captured here

    It was a rare sighting. Two cubs and their mother brown bear made their way around Calle Contenta and the Peggy Lane area on Monday.

    New Mexico Game and Fish officers with the help of Las Vegas Police Department officers tranquilized the trio and moved them to a location outside of the city. The family climbed a large tree behind a home on Peggy Lane. In the morning, residents of Calle Contenta spotted them in their back yard and in a field near Chico Drive. The bears were in search of food in preparation of their upcoming hibernation.
