  • Many shined during crisis

    It goes without saying that we all wish the flood-waters that raged through Las Vegas and San Miguel County Friday and throughout the weekend could have instead been channeled into Storrie Lake. The massive amounts of water coming down Gallinas Canyon surely would have gone a long way toward replenishing the lake, which in recent years has looked more like a pond due to the extreme drought.

    Unfortunately, it just wasn’t meant to be.

  • Work of Art — It’s a shared experience

    Something clicks when people are faced with a kind of commonality that matters. The flooding in Las Vegas proves  that such is true.

    Let me explain:

    I first noticed this we-have-something-in-common phenomenon when I was a few years younger and a student at the University of Missouri. The Columbia campus is so spread out that a bicycle becomes the main means of transportation.

    Have a car? Forget it! Some dormitories are a mile from the classrooms.

  • Chavez, Ohoueu lead HU charge

    Henrique Chavez was the first native-born American runner to cross the finish line — and the fifth overall — in the Red Raider Open this past Saturday in Lubbock, Texas.

    The Buena Vista native and former Mora High state champion led New Mexico Highlands to a second-place team finish in the collegiate men’s race. Fourteen teams competed in the meet.

    Paris native Marie-Josiane Ohoueu paced NMHU’s women, helping them finish fourth as a team.

    Chavez finished the 8K course in 25:57, 26 seconds ahead of the sixth-place finisher, Dylan Doss of West Texas A&M.

  • Cowgirl spikers match 2012 win total

  • UPDATE: Canal fixed, carrying water again

    Repairs to the canal that ruptured Friday morning have been completed, and the canal is once again carrying water to Storrie Lake.

    Crews worked night and day on the repairs since the rupture was discovered, although their work was at times hampered by additional rain. The canal was back on line Monday afternoon. With the canal repaired, the amount of water in the Gallinas River should decrease.
