  • We need to do better

    The Annie E. Casey Foundation released its annual child well-being report last week.

    The good news: New Mexico no longer ranks dead last in child well-being. The bad news: We’re now 49th in this year’s Kids Count Data Book, an annual national report that grades states on education, health care and poverty.
    While no longer being ranked last is definitely a step forward, ranking second worst among states in child well-being is certainly nothing to celebrate.

  • Another Perspective: NM Health care plan delivers

    By Bob Moos

  • All-Stars in Duke City

    A last hurrah — at least on the high school level — will come for four of the Meadow City’s premier athletes this week in North-South All-Star competition.

    Albuquerque Isotopes

    Before Friday night, the Albuquerque Isotopes had played six straight one-run games, but that all ended with a season-high 16-run outburst by the Isotopes on Friday against the Reno Aces.

    Albuquerque (51-56) routed Reno (56-51) 16-7 for its ninth win in its last 11 tries.

    Neither team got the offense going through the first two frames, but the Isotopes quickly put the game out of reach in the third inning.
