  • Young Cardinals flying under the radar this fall

    Being a tad underrated is nothing new for the Robertson football program.

    Flying under the radar altogether — with pundits salivating over defending state champ Lovington and runner-up St. Michael’s, not to mention a Hope Christian team on the rise — is another matter.

    But with the young group RHS is fielding after the loss of 14 seniors, that’s where these Cardinals find themselves going into Friday night’s opener against Portales (7 p.m. kickoff at Cardinal Stadium).

  • Familiar coach takes helm, preaches ‘new era’ at WLV

    Robert Alarcon hopes to have the best of both worlds this fall as he takes the head coaching reins at West Las Vegas.

    Alarcon, a veteran assistant at West who has enjoyed success as head coach at the middle school and YAFL levels, is a familar face to most of his charges. His presence brings a sense of stability and continuity to the program he inherits.

  • Cowboys look to ‘Purple Out’ the Perk

    A T-shirt giveaway is being used as one incentive to draw fans to Perkins Stadium on Saturday evening for the New Mexico Highlands home football opener against Eastern New Mexico.

    The first 250 fans through the gates will receive a purple NMHU athletics shirt courtesy of Community 1st Bank. The school is pushing a “Purple Out” promotion, encouraging fans to don purple and pack the stadium for the traditional intrastate rivalry game.

    The Mora Research Center was established in 1972 to serve a statewide mission in forestry research, working with landowners and federal and state agencies to steward our forests, range, wildlife and water.  

    For more than 20 years, John T. Harrington was professor and superintendent of the center.  To honor his dedication and service to New Mexico State University, the Board of Regents approved naming the center the John T. Harrington Forestry Research Center at Mora.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - Dogs, friends and family gather to honor John

    I wasn’t sure whether I had lost my wits or just gone to the dogs recently when I decided to walk a mile for a scholarship in John Harrington’s name. Our beautiful, very successful Mora Tree Research center was just renamed the John T. Harrington Forestry Research Center in his memory, and part of the festivities included a 10K run and a one-mile dog friendly run/walk.

    The flier said, “Join us to celebrate John, his passion for running, the mountains, and his dogs.”

  • Author, journalist writes HU Cowboy Code

    By Margaret McKinney
    Highlands University

    Award-winning author and journalist Slim Randles wrote a Cowboy Code this summer for New Mexico Highlands University’s students.

    “I was delighted and honored to be asked to write the Cowboy Code for Highlands,” Randles said. “Real cowboys live by the code that enables them to be kind, loyal, honest, hard-working and most of all, independent. The Cowboy Code is a way of looking at life and dealing with others honorably.”
