    Luna Community College student Joseph Esquibel has always had a knack for drawing. He says as a young elementary student, he would find himself doodling. His works varied from landscapes to cartoons to cars.

The infamous Mora County ban on drilling, via its misguided “community rights” ordinance, was recently struck down as unconstitutional, while next door in San Miguel County, a different kind of ordinance took root in November, to the consternation of the oil and gas industry.

    PUEBLO, Colo. — He was not even in the starting lineup two months ago. But redshirt freshman Reis Humphrey is going to the place every collegiate grappler dreams of.
