  • Quick night for Dons

    Back home after three straight Fridays on the road, the West Las Vegas Dons punished Raton 59-7 Friday night at a rain-soaked Herrera Complex.

    West, which hosts its homecoming game against Tucumcari this week, improved to 2-4. Raton, a former district rival, fell to 2-4.

    The Dons scored on their second possession. WLV freshman running back Darion Williams rushed for a couple first downs and Jordan Martinez’s pass to Miguel Sena earned another on the drive, which resulted in a 3-yard score by Martinez with 4:04 left in the first quarter.

    Robertson’s first score came after Ian Parks delivered the ball on a throw-in to T.J. Trujillo, who split two defenders in the penalty area and got tripped. Parks nailed the penalty kick.

  • Trash Talk

    All you trash scofflaws out there, beware. The city isn’t going to take it anymore, literally.

    The city’s solid waste department is cracking down on people found violating Las Vegas’ solid waste ordinance. That could mean that the trash collector skips an overfilled rollout when he’s making his rounds, or it could mean that the violator ends up with an unexpected bill or a fine, said city Solid Waste Director Matt Griego.
