    service to resume 

    SANTA FE — New Mexico transportation officials say all Rail Runner service is expected to resume a day after being derailed by severe rain.

    The New Mexico Department of Transportation says all trains were expected to begin operating on schedule Sunday after some routes were shut down because of a washout along a key route.

    Officials say rain caused a culvert near the top of Waldo Canyon to overflow, endangering the stability and drainage for the tracks.

  • Editorial: Celebrating rich history

    We are fortunate to live in a place filled with historic homes and buildings.

    Drive down Seventh or Eighth Street, and you’ll see an array of gorgeous Victorian homes that were built by wealthy merchants and other well-to-do residents at the turn of the last century. Go down Douglas Avenue, Bridge Street or around the Plaza, and you’ll see a wide mix of architectural styles that document the rich history of Las Vegas. A stone’s throw away from the Plaza is South Pacific, where modest adobe structures have stood for more than a century.

  • Fall sports season officially under way

    Monday is the first day high school football teams across New Mexico are able to conduct official fall season practices.
    For other fall sports teams, it’s next Monday the 11th.

    That means Las Vegans can expect to see plenty of activity at fields, gyms and trails around town as football, soccer, volleyball and cross country athletes from Robertson and West Las Vegas dig in. Of course, with camps, clinics and other types of offseason training, such activity hasn’t exactly been entirely absent.
