  • Editorial Roundup - Excerpts from editorials around the nation - August 31, 2012

    The Jerusalem Post on the passing of Neil Armstrong (Aug. 24) — Whether you were a wide-eyed five-year-old, a self-absorbed teenager or world-wise adult, you’ll likely never forget the moment. On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong climbed down the ladder outside the lunar module, and with a little jump, became the first person to set foot on the moon.

  • Another Perspective - Negotiation, litigation, and never an agreement

    Last week we went into detail about how the City of Las Vegas and the acequias moved from litigation to negotiation and, unfortunately, back into litigation over Gallinas River water rights. Now let’s explore where the impasse currently stands — and how litigation is again getting in the way.

    When the court-ordered legal proceedings to resume litigation, the acequias sought to continue negotiations and, at first, the city seemed to agree. Not so now.

  • Isotopes’ Ely is PCL’s top ace

    Three consecutive road losses in Oklahoma City have caused the Albuquerque lead in the Pacific Coast League American South to dwindle to two and a half games.

    But the Isotopes organization received some good news Wednesday to offset that of the “bummer” variety. John Ely, the ‘Topes’ ace, was named the PCL Pitcher of the Year.

    The honor was decided by league managers and media.

  • 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.
