  • Work of Art - Why we must share

    For weeks I’ve searched for a concise way of articulating my feelings on how the electronic era  has changed our lives. Then it hit me.

    In Sunday’s Parade Magazine, there’s a cartoon that shows a man at the computer, asking his wife, “What’s the point of having an opinion if you don’t email it to everyone you know?”

  • North-South slugfest starts Thursday

    The North-South baseball fest coming to town on Thursday isn’t just about the All-Stars this year.

    It’s also for the young players and the community as a whole.

    The three-day event will include a full afternoon and evening of activity Thursday, including a first-ever camp for youth baseball players, followed by the North-South skills competition and home run derby.

    Thursday events are free and open to the public.

  • Red Sox capture fourth straight LVLL title

    A dynasty in Little League baseball?

    The Red Sox of Las Vegas Little League’s Majors Division can talk in those terms now that they’ve won a fourth consecutive championship.

    The Sox finished a commanding run by defeating the Cardinals 8-1 in the LVLL Majors tournament championship on Saturday morning at Keyes Park.

    The Sox got two runs apiece from Richard Armijo and Arjay Ortiz as they built a 6-0 cushion over the first two innings.

    And though that initial burst was all the Sox would need, the team wasn’t quite done yet.

  • La Plaza Athletics unbeaten in three years

    Three straight division championships.

    Three undefeated seasons.

    La Plaza Little League’s Athletics aren’t exactly the local equivalent of the Harlem Globetrotters, but they might be close.

    Playing in 90-degree sunshine on Saturday afternoon, the Athletics capped their season as they have the two previous years — hoisting a trophy.

    It wasn’t easy, though.
