  • Palabras Pinturescas: Queen Mary’s Farewell Dinner a real feast

    It wouldn’t be springtime in our Rockies, and more particularly here on this old ranch  if we didn’t have at least one baby calf on a bottle. This bottle baby was born during our last snow storm, and his mother developed post partem psychosis, so elected to totally ignore him. This condition is rare, caused by an imbalance of hormones after birth. Thankfully, we have the warm sheds, corrals and chute to hold this belligerent cow that has to be milked daily, just to feed her baby.

  • All in the family

    ALBUQUERQUE — Warren Fulgenzi Jr. shook off a shaky start and got on a roll to capture his second consecutive Class 1A-4A boys’ singles championship Thursday evening at Jerry Cline Complex.

    Fulgenzi defeated Will McDermott of St. Mike’s, 6-3, 6-0, in the final. The taller, rangier McDermott gave Fulgenzi some anxious moments early on, taking a first game, and it was 3-2 and 4-3 in the first set.

    Much of the issue lay in short service returns by Fulgenzi, but the Horseman’s reach also kept him in volleys longer than most opponents.

  • Topes mark Cinco de Mayo

    ALBUQUERQUE — Everywhere at Isotopes Park on Thursday, there were reminders of Cinco.

    But it was the nueve on the scoreboard in the third inning that loomed largest.

    Sacramento scored nine runs in that frame to hijack the host Isotopes’ celebration of Cinco de Mayo in a 12-6 rout that was a much more lopsided 12-1 until the Topes started chipping away in the bottom of the fourth inning.
