  • Editorial cartoon - Sept. 30
  • The Pope’s visit to the U.S.

    Editor’s note: This editorial is from The News & Observer of Raleigh (North Carolina) and was originally published on Sept. 21.

    Those fortunate enough to see Pope Francis on his visit to the United States will know it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, one they’ll share with friends and family all their lives. And that feeling will apply to non-Catholics as well as members of the church.

  • Work of Art: ‘Well, nobody ever told me’

    Occasionally in the news we come across an item that requires a re-read. Did I get that right? we ask.

    A week ago there was an item in the Albuquerque Journal about a man — James Roger Madalena — the second-longest-serving member of the New Mexico Legislature, who asserted that he’d never read a particular document that relates to how a politician goes about receiving donations and what to do when he/she receives them.

  • Lady Cards make tourney final

    All-tournament performances by Rachele Portillo, Lauren Fulgenzi, Jaci Fulgenzi and Brandee Fulgenzi buoyed the Robertson volleyball team to a runner-up finish in this past weekend’s Sandia Prep Invite in Albuquerque.

    RHS head coach Dominique Montoya said she was most impressed by “how well they played together.”

    “It was a total team effort. They played well against the No. 1 ranked team in our class.”

  • Homecoming heroics

    A bruising ground game led by Joseph Paul Griego and Marc Grano enabled Robertson to pull away from Capital for a 50-28 homecoming win Friday night at Cardinal Stadium.

    The Cardinals (3-2) darted out to a 20-0 lead but the Jaguars — who got a fine game from Augustine Larrañaga — rallied to within 28-22 at halftime.
