  • Palabras Pintorescas: North of Dalbey was just pasture

    Seems as how when I happen to visit with folks I know here, around our Las Vegas, they have opinions. Opinions about our Meadow City and its growth or decline, depending on how one defines the life or possibly the decline of a town.

    Sixty years ago, big boss Jim and I lived on Dalbey Drive for a year or so, until we could move into the house we were building out near Montezuma. What an experience that was, particularly for me! I grew up in the Valmora Sanatorium hospital complex, with three meals a day served in the big dining room there.

  • East teams take Round 2

    The Lady Cardinal softball team may be best known for its offense, but these girls can play defense too.

    That was evident Tuesday, when Robertson closed out West Las Vegas 12-5 to earn a sweep of the three-game season series and stay unbeaten at 7-0 in District 2-4A.

    Starting pitcher Samantha Montaño didn’t allow a run through the first two innings and didn’t get rattled even as the visiting Lady Dons made a run, drawing to within 8-5 in the top of the fifth.

  • Mora sluggers looking tough

    With just a couple weeks left in the regular season, the Mora Rangers baseball team is locked in a dogfight for supremacy in District 4-2A.

    It’s not a bad place to be for the Rangers, who have made a gradual climb in the ranks under head coach Manuel Benavidez.

    Mora lost a tough one to the combined Cimarron-Maxwell squad, a district opponent, by a 13-2 tally on Tuesday.

  • Quintana, Barela post qualifying scores

    She’s already qualified for state in May, but West Las Vegas’ Joedy Quintana continues to post strong scores on the golf course.

    Quintana shot a 75 Tuesday at New Mexico Military Institute and an 83 Monday at Spring Rivers in Roswell. She made putts for birdies on three consecutive holes (4, 5 and 6) Tuesday.

    The two-day tournament was hosted by Goddard with 77 girls — many from Class 5A schools — participating.

  • LV native in Boston Marathon

    When George Chavez was a freshman at Robertson High School back in the 1960s, the Boston Marathon caught his eye.

    “I remember watching it,” he recalled. “I told myself I would do it when I was 60.”

    It’s a promise he kept when he traversed the 26-mile course on Monday at the age of 61.
