  • Support non-profits

    One of the great things about Las Vegas is the many organizations here that work hard to provide opportunities to area residents and to make our community a better place to live.

    Among those organizations are the First Presbyterian Church Mustard Seed program, Habitat for Humanity and the New Mexico Highlands University Foundation. Each of these groups is currently raising money to further its mission, and each one is worthy of your support.

  • 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.

  • Block party
  • NMHU runners get taste of Chile Pepper

    In a race heavily populated with athletes from NCAA Division I schools, New Mexico Highlands University was well-represented among the fray of the 2013 Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival held Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark.
    Highlands’ lead runners —Henrique Chavez on the men’s side and Marie-Josiane Ohoueu on the women’s — both cracked the 60s in placing.
