  • 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.

  • Luna sluggers go long vs. Clarendon

    Luna Community College’s Victoria Cordova waited on the right pitch to hit.

    Then, when it came, she sent the softball to the cheap seats.

    Cordova’s sixth-inning slam put an exclamation point on Luna’s eventual 11-7 win over Clarendon (Texas) College in the second game of a four-game set Friday evening at WLV Field. Earlier, LCC’s Anastacia Martinez had belted an RBI double to gain some crucial insurance as Clarendon began to muster a rally.

  • Rainiers cool off Isotope bats

    A trek to the Pacific Northwest saw the Isotopes’ recent offensive proficiency go south.

    Albuquerque (6-6) lost  4-3 Monday at Tacoma, ending a winless series with the Rainiers. As a result, the Isotopes slipped a game behind the Las Vegas 51s for first place in the division.

    The Topes are back at The Lab for an eight-night homestand against Reno and Tacoma.

    Albuquerque led 3-1 midway through the sixth inning Monday, but D.J. Peterson hit a two-run bomb, and Ben Gamel chased that with a solo shot to right.

  • Life after death

    Jennifer Valdez lived her life to help others and she continues to do so in death. Valdez, 29, died unexpectedly in early January as a result of a brain aneurysm, but her organs are allowing others to continue to live.

    Her decision to become an organ donor has allowed a 15-year-old boy to spend time with his family and friends as a result of Valdez’s left kidney.

    A 71-year-old mother of two continues to enjoy shopping, spending time in her garden, and go to the movies as she was the recipient of Valdez’s right kidney.

  • N.M. among leaders in organ donors

    There is a nationwide crisis as roughly 118,000 men, women and children across the nation are on waiting lists of life-saving organ transplants.

    In New Mexico, more than 700 people on the waiting list including 65 New Mexicans waiting for kidneys.

    According to statistics, every 10 minutes another person is added to the national transplant waiting list.

    “There is a great need,” said MaryAnn Sorenson of New Mexico Donor Services.
