  • Grading teachers

    New Mexico consistently ranks at or near the bottom compared to other states when it comes to educating our children.

    So it’s clear that business as usual is no longer an option when it concerns our state’s public schools. To their credit, Gov.

  • Work of Art — We love being scared

    Tomorrow night, many of us will get the chance to become frightened — and to enjoy it. Is it the rush of adrenalin that gives people a “high?”

    Thursday night, Halloween, will of course feature spooky costumes as kids go trick-or-treating. If history holds out, they’ll congregate mostly in the newer, better-lighted areas of town. Streets like Vegas, Mountain View, Dalbey, Legion and Lee drives are likely gathering places.

    With the District 2-3A cross country championship meet just ahead, local distance runners got in one last regular-season competition this past Thursday at Santa Rosa.

    No stranger to the front of the pack all season, West Las Vegas’ Moises Coca earned his first individual meet championship of the fall, striding across the finish line in 17 minutes and 27 seconds.

    In the girls’ race, Robertson standout Annabella Miller was a solid second in 21:46.

    And the deep, talented Pecos Panthers took home another team title in the boys’ run.

  • Road swing not charitable for Cowgirls
