  • Dispatch New Mexico - Going down to the legislative wire

    Hold on to your hat, we’re closing in on the final couple of weeks of this 2017 New Mexico legislative session. The last day of the session is March 18, so there will be a flurry of activity in the days ahead as the intensity of lawmaking increases.

    The session will be remembered for its budget, of course, because that’s what will keep state government open. But there is always the possibility that a major reform or two will be passed into law as well.

  • Eastern takes two

    Errors proved costly for the Highlands Cowgirls on Wednesday afternoon, as visiting Eastern New Mexico took both games of a non-conference softball doubleheader at Cowgirl Field.

    NMHU (4-13 overall) committed six errors in game one and lost 9-7.

    Christian Bobian (3 for 5, four RBI) and Monica Caporal (3 of 4, one triple, one stolen base, three runs) shined for the Cowgirls. Highlands outhit Eastern 12-9, but the cause was hurt by untimely outs that stranded baserunners.
