  • Work of Art: Remember old OLOS bulletins?

    A friend made a habit of collecting and saving Sunday bulletins for Our Lady of Sorrows Sunday church services.

    Considering the number of years represented in these bulletins, it’s safe to say she was a faithful church member. Most of the bulletins that she passed on to me date back to the 1960s, and all contain a historical photo on the cover and list a slew of activities: wedding banns, a bingo prize of $230, baptisms and special events. The pastor at that time was the Rev. James T. Burke.

  • East-West, the sequels

    The battle for Cinder Road took a dramatic turn on Saturday.

    West Las Vegas (11-6-1, 5-2-1) stayed close to St. Mike’s (11-7, 4-1) in the District 2-4A standings, sweeping Robertson 8-4 and 8-2 on the Cardinals’ home field.

    That came after the Redbirds had won at West on April 4.

    Robertson (14-8, 3-5) was to try for payback at Taos on Tuesday while West was at Pojoaque Valley.

    Antonio Bustamante hit 2 for 3 and scored twice to highlight West’s effort in game one Saturday.
