  • Write-in candidate protests City Hall's election procedure

    Write-in mayoral candidate Patrick Romero is protesting the city’s decision not to allow him on the ballot for the March 2 municipal election.

    Romero, a Las Vegas City Schools board member, filed a complaint for declaratory and injunctive relief in state District Court.

    Romero’s court filing names as defendants both the city and City Clerk Casandra Fresquez.

  • Editorial: Transparency and ethics

    We’re all in favor of legislation that would create a state ethics commission, but the measures being advanced in this year’s session appear to be lacking a key ingredient — transparency.

  • West comes up short vs. Elkettes

    The state’s No. 1 ranking can be as much pain as pleasure — a bullseye and a source of pressures internal as well as external.

    The Pojoaque Elkettes know something about that, having achieved the glory of the state championship in recent years. And now the West Las Vegas Lady Dons know the feeling, too.

    In Monday night’s matchup between these two District 2-3A (and state) contenders, it was Pojoaque that played with the right mix of urgency and the relaxation of an underdog playing the top-rated club in the state.

  • County to keep road open after all

    The San Miguel County Commission reversed itself Monday, deciding to keep open a road in the Valley.

    The family of Daniel Garcia had asked that the commission close a one-mile portion of B41-E, which is  near El Pueblo.

    After a hearing in October, the commission unanimously granted that request, in spite of nearby residents who contended they needed the road for access.

    Those residents appealed that decision, arguing that some hadn’t received notice about the issue from the county.

  • BREAKING/ONLINE: Weather scratches East-West girls' game

    Due to a winter storm, officials have cancelled Wednesday's girls' basketball between Robertson and West Las Vegas. Three games, beginning with freshmen at 4 p.m., had been slated at Marr Gym. A makeup date will be announced later. The RHS-WLV boys' games are set for Thursday evening at Gillie Lopez Gym, weather permitting.

  • Lady Cards get it done at Raton

    Karlee Bradley led all scorers with 20 points and Kassandra Tapia turned out another double-double Monday night for Robertson in a 55-41 win at Raton.

    Bradley, who’d fouled out of the Lady Cardinals’ shorthanded loss at Santa Fe Indian School on Saturday,, provided offense to spare on Monday. Tapia recorded 12 points and 12 rebounds, Daniella Montoya had 16 points and Miranda Garcia grabbed eight boards for Robertson.

  • Editorial: Suit makes good point

    Fair housing is an important value in our society — something that all levels of government must defend.

    Recently, local developer Phil Warfield filed a lawsuit against the city for its rejection of his proposed four-lot subdivision on New Mexico Avenue.

    The state courts will decide on the merits of that litigation, but Warfield’s lawsuit raised an interesting issue: Residents who opposed the development made statements that seemed to counter the idea of fair housing.

  • Cardinals champs of their own tourney

    No, the Robertson Cardinals still don’t enjoy 100 percent health, and recent forfeits in up to four or five weight classes have limited their point-scoring potential.

    But the wrestlers these Redbirds do have available showed some of what they are capable of Friday and Saturday at Mike Marr Gym. With eight varsity men making the medal round — first through fourth place matches — Robertson clinched the team championship of its own Cardinal Classic.

  • Letter: Another view of Highlands' expansion

    Reading the history of Mortimer Hall as written by Art Trujillo gave me a push to take the campus history a bit further.
