  • Mud run in Mora for Fiestas

    If you’re not afraid to get your hands — or other parts — dirty, you can help Mora raise money for its athletic programs.

    A benefit mud run will be held at 11 a.m. this coming Saturday, July 22, at the Mora High School campus. The run has been scheduled to immediately follow the parade of the Mora Fiestas.

    The cost to participate is $10 for adults and $5 for students.

    “Come get dirty, have fun and help out,” said organizer Aaron Gallegos.

    The Associated Press

    LAS VEGAS, Nev. — O.J. Simpson’s story represents one of the most dramatic falls from grace in the history of American pop culture.

    A beloved football hero in the 1960s and ‘70s, he transitioned effortlessly to movie star, sports commentator and TV pitchman in the years that followed.

    He kept that role until the 1994 killings of his ex-wife and her friend. A jury acquitted him, but many still believe he carried out the grisly slayings.

  • Last in line - La Plaza juniors...

    La Plaza juniors baseball is the last in line.

    That team is the Meadow City’s last hope for a state Little League championship after advancing with a pair of big wins this past weekend.

    But La Plaza will have to endure a long road trip in the mid-summer heat, playing in Carlsbad starting Friday.

    La Plaza’s juniors defeated Alamogordo Rotary 14-3 on Friday and then took down North Valley 10-6 on Saturday; both games were held at Albuquerque West Mesa.

  • Triple trouble - Isotopes hit...

    David Dahl made the Tacoma Rainiers pay with a triple that scored three runs for the Albuquerque Isotopes in the fourth inning.

    But it was solid pitching and defense that proved just as important in the Isotopes’ 6-5 victory.

  • LV Junior Wrestling meeting...

    Parents of current or prospective participants in the Las Vegas Junior Wrestling program are being asked to attend a mandatory organizational meeting this week.

    The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 20, at the Robertson High School wrestling room at McFarland Hall.

    The meeting will include information about fees, practice times and assignment of board members.

  • Little League update: La Plaza...

    La Plaza juniors baseball is the last in line.

    That team is the Meadow City's last hope for a state Little League championship after advancing with a pair of big wins this past weekend. But La Plaza will have to endure a long road trip in the mid-summer heat, playing in Carlsbad starting Friday.

    A couple of other local teams came close to state titles this past weekend before falling in their own double-elimination tournaments.

  • Little League update: LVLL 8-10...

    Las Vegas Little League 8-10 softball has battled back from defeat to earn a spot in the state championship game.

    The team endured a 6-0 setback against Eastdale on Saturday morning at Atrisco Valley fields in Albuquerque, then bounced back to defeat Copper 6-4 in the afternoon. The team must now beat Eastdale twice to win state, with the first game starting 10 a.m. on Sunday.

    Las Vegas juniors softball, which won 13-2 over Petroglyph on Friday, will meet Thunderbird in a semifinal 10 a.m. Sunday. A win would mean a place in the title game 5:30 p.m. Monday at Atrisco.
