    THUMBS UP! MORA RANGERETTES ARE STATE CHAMPS
    Congratulations to the Mora volleyball coach Jacquelyn Sanchez and her team on capturing the Class 2A state volleyball championship over the powerful Son Blazers of Mesilla Valley Christian. The championship win brings the long-sought-after blue trophy to Mora after three decades. The last time was in 1986. And congratulations to Stacy Fulgenzi and her Lady Cardinal volleyball team on its second-place finish at the 4A state volleyball finals.

    THUMBS DOWN! 86-YEAR-OLD MUGGED

  • Keep cracking the glass ceiling

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from the Dallas Morning News and was originally published on Nov. 10.

    Whether you voted for her or not, Hillary Clinton represented the biggest crack yet in the glass ceiling with her bid to become the first female president.

    She made girls truly believe that they can aspire to be whatever they want to be in life, even president of the United States.

  • Nepotism at Luna shameful

    The long-awaited audit of Luna Community College is finally complete, and, as expected, the picture it paints of the college’s president and its board of trustees isn’t very flattering.

    Indeed, it’s downright shameful.

    We wish we could say we are surprised by the findings of nepotism, cronyism and favoritism detailed in the audit report, which was prepared by the state Higher Education Department, but the reality is that everybody knew what was happening at Luna.

  • America must come together

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from The (Bryan-College Station, Texas) Eagle and was published on Oct. 30.

    We all need to step back and take a breath.

    We are nearing the end of a long, ugly presidential campaign that has spawned great passions for one candidate or another. That is good: People should be involved in selecting their leaders.

    THUMBS UP! A WONDERFUL EXHIBIT

  • Trump’s threats

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from  The Star-Ledger of Newark, New Jersey and was originally published on Oct. 26.

    Donald Trump says his hot-mic boast about grabbing women without their consent was just idle talk. Yet another woman — the eleventh in the past two weeks — has come forward to say that it is not.

  • Vote ‘yes’ on amendment

    If there’s a downside to the constitutional amendment voters are being asked to decide in the Nov. 8 general election, we’re not seeing it.

    The measure calls for New Mexico’s constitution to be amended to give judges the ability to deny bail to a defendant awaiting trial in cases where the prosecution is able to convince a judge that the defendant poses a threat to the public.

    That change, in and of itself, makes the measure worthy of voter approval.
