  • East-West games this week

    A pair of East-West basketball games are in store this coming week.
    The Robertson-West Las Vegas girls' game has been moved up from Tuesday to Monday due to the school board election Tuesday at Mike Marr Gym. Action begins with junior varsity at 5:30.
    In light of Friday's district court ruling, Wednesday's WLV-RHS boys' game is a go. Advance tickets will be sold Tuesday from 11-2 and Wednesday from 10-1 at Gillie Lopez Gym.
    Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students.

  • Dons score small court victory

    Games on.

    At least two of them, at least for now.

    District Judge Abigail Aragon on Friday ordered that two remaining West Las Vegas boys basketball games vs. Robertson and at St. Michael’s be played as scheduled.

    The fate of two other WLV-RHS and WLV-St.Mike’s games will hinge on either an out-of-court agreement among the affected schools and the New Mexico Activities Association or a Feb. 10 hearing back in district court.

    The judge’s ruling came in front of a capacity crowd in a San Miguel County Courthouse courtroom.

  • Dream Come True - Rociada native to perform at NHCC

    Reynaldo Maestas will soon experience a dream come true. Maestas, a native of Rociada, will headline a Valentines show on 2 p.m. next Sunday at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque.

    “I’ve always wanted to have my own show there,” Maestas said. “I’ve performed as a guest on-stage, but I have never had my own show. There aren’t enough words on what this means to me.”

    Maestas, who works at New Mexico Tech, has had music figuratively running through his blood since before he was born.

  • Wagon Mound board member disqualified

    Debbie Coca’s tenure on the Wagon Mound School Board will soon come to an end.

    Coca, who was appointed by the board this past summer to fill a vacant position, was not allowed to run for the seat in Tuesday’s school board election. The former Mora County clerk determined she wasn’t eligible because she resides in Watrous.

    Watrous, a small town off Interstate 25, is part of the Las Vegas City Schools district.

    By Beth Urech

    Dare I admit that I only recently memorized what the initials stand for. Interested? STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
