    THUMBS DOWN! BREAK-INS AT SCHOOLS, SENIOR CENTER
    Las Vegas police suspect three juveniles of breaking into the Las Vegas Senior Center,  two West Las Vegas schools and vehicles earlier this month. The buildings were then vandalized, resulting in more than $1,000 in damage. The cases are being handed over to the Juvenile Probation Office. Let’s hope that those responsible are held accountable and that they learn that it’s not OK to break into a building and vandalize it.

  • Dulcey Amargo - A whopping 21 percent

    A couple of weeks ago, I ventured forth to attend my 50th class reunion, looking forward to the event in my hometown of Gallup. The event included classes of ’63,’64 and ’65, so I anticipated celebrating with a fairly large contingent of former friends.

    Well, there were about 12 of my classmates of the Cathedral High School class of ’64 present, two from the class of ’63, and one from ’65. Some were accompanied by spouses, bringing the total to about 28 or so, or a whopping 21 percent … not an overwhelming crowd, for sure.

  • ‘Beasties’ rumble past East Mountain

    Once upon a time, the East Mountain girls’ soccer team was responsible for ousting Robertson from the state tournament — another classic case of entrenched private school trumping public on the postseason pitch.

    But Wednesday’s match at RHS Field was far removed from that chapter in Beastie Girls history — in more ways than one.

    Robertson (6-2 overall) scored three times in the first 11 minutes and went on to an 8-0 romp.

  • Friday night huge for LV prep teams

    Two of the top three Class 4A football teams in New Mexico will clash Friday night at Cardinal Stadium.

    Top-ranked Robertson and usual nemesis St. Michael’s, the No. 3 team according to the NMOTSC.com poll, kick off at 7 p.m.

    The Cardinals’ front line has been clicking, resulting in good production in the ground game. QB Dominic Lucero is averaging 115.7 rush yards a game, with Marcelo Cedillo and Joseph Paul Griego at 74.3 and 60.3, respectively.
