  • Lab a big step forward

    Students enrolled in Luna Community College’s nursing program in the fall will get to practice what they learn in the classroom on advanced simulator mannequins, and that’s a giant step forward for the program.
    Luna unveiled its state-of-the-art simulation lab last week, with President Pete Campos calling it a “monumental occasion.” Gov. Susana Martinez was at the college to mark the occasion.

  • Summer reading

    The grand prizes include a trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Fla., the opportunity to be a Junior Zookeeper for a day, a hot-air balloon ride with the governor, the chance to throw the first ceremonial pitch at an Isotopes game and even an opportunity to go out on a fossil dig.

    THUMBS DOWN! VANDALISM AT RHS
    Whether it was a senior prank that got out of hand or simply some other disgruntled individuals blowing off steam, the vandalism at Robertson High School over the weekend crossed the line. Trashing the school was disrespectful and unlawful, and it was a slap in the face to every person at the school who devotes his or her life to educating students. Those responsible must be caught and punished. And part of that punishment should include being forced to pay for the damage and the cleanup.

  • Support the recall against mayor

    We would like to thank all those individuals who have requested and returned the recall petitions. As a result of everyone’s efforts we have already collected close to 700 signatures.

    To those individuals who said they could not sign the recall petition because they have family members employed at the city, thank you for being honest. We certainly don’t want anyone to lose their jobs.

  • Pecos student tired of bullying

    My name is Raelene Duran. I am 12 years old and in the sixth grade. I attend Pecos Middle School.

    I am being bullied by one of my teachers. My parents and I have met with him concerning this matter, and we have had several meetings with the principal. (I recently) attended a meeting and reported this to the superintendent, Mr. Trujillo, and the board members.

    Nothing is being done. Doesn’t anybody care?
