  • Dispatch New Mexico - Trump’s unpopular inauguration

    Forget the honeymoon, Donald Trump is already unpopular.

    According to Gallup in a poll taken in early January, Trump’s transition into the presidency had an approval rating of 44 percent, nearly 40 points lower than Barack Obama’s, which stood at 83 percent at about the same time in January 2009 during his transition into the White House.

    Camp instructors will include Bustos as well as other members of the West Las Vegas High boys’ and girls’ basketball teams and other community members.

  • Close calls - Robertson opens district vs. St. Michael’s

    St. Michael’s head girls’ basketball coach Martin Romero got the inbounds play he wanted, with a curl route and then a pass to the corner for a go-ahead shot.

    But when Alicia Alvarez’s shot missed, Robertson’s eighth-grade point guard Maria Barela was there to grab the ball. It hadn’t been the best of nights for her or her teammates, but she stormed straight down the floor, drawing enough attention in the lane to get Jazmyne Jenkins free for a pass to the left baseline.

    NEW YORK  — Bags and Rock and Pudge are heading to Cooperstown.

    After a vote that could prove to be a turning point how Steroids Era stars are viewed, Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens could be joining them in the next few years.

    Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines and Ivan Rodriguez were elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame on Wednesday, earning the honor as Trevor Hoffman and Vladimir Guerrero fell just short of the necessary 75 percent.
