    GLENDALE, Ariz.  — Danny Cleary shot from behind the post, squeezing the puck through a hole seemingly no wider than a skate blade. Todd Bertuzzi muscled an opponent and the puck to the front of the crease, getting a fortunate bounce to find the net.

    Two goals in 2 minutes and the Detroit Red Wings were headed into the next round, the Phoenix Coyotes toward an uncertain future.

  • NFL talks on hiatus

    The Associated Press

    MINNEAPOLIS  — After four long and intense mediation sessions between the NFL and its locked-out players, the judge decided to give both parties an extended break.

    By the time they reconvene in mid-May, the landscape of their discussions could be completely different.

    Executive vice president Jeff Pash, the NFL’s lead negotiator, said Wednesday that U.S. Judge Magistrate Arthur Boylan told both sides they likely won’t convene again until May 16 because he has a few other matters on his judicial calendar.

    LOS ANGELES  — Commissioner Bud Selig is taking away control of the Los Angeles Dodgers from owner Frank McCourt, whose troubled finances and unresolved divorce settlement have seemingly paralyzed the once-proud franchise.

    Selig told McCourt on Wednesday he will appoint a MLB representative in a few days to oversee all aspects of the business and day-to-day operations of the club.

    However, McCourt appeared to signal his intent to challenge Selig’s decision.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Oh, how the times have changed

    My collection of old family files is fascinating and now I realize how much I regret not taking a history class or two from Dr. Lynn Perrigo at Highlands so long ago. I’d advise any student in school now to make time, room, for at least an overview class on area history. You will never regret it!

    I just read a March 1937 copy of the State of New Mexico Department of Game and Fish brochure.

  • Final cleanup under way

    The city of Las Vegas shut down the right southbound lane of Interstate 25 between the University and north exits Monday as it began the final phase of the cleanup of a property that one city official has previously referred to as “the biggest eyesore in the history of Las Vegas.”

    The cleanup of the junkyard along Interstate 25 has been in the works for months. In late August, the city obtained a court order and deployed dozens of city workers who used dump trucks and tractors to clear trash from the property owned by Tony Ortega.

  • Gateway Project

    City leaders and merchants are pushing for a gateway project that will welcome visitors and residents alike and help guide tourists to the city’s Old Town and downtown business districts.

    The project would once again make University Avenue the main corridor through the city’s historic and commercial districts. It’s geared for those entering Las Vegas through Interstate 25’s 345 exit.

    R.E. Laumbach, chairman of the Citizens Committee for Historic Preservation, calls it a curb appeal project.
