  • NMAA votes to keep Santa Fe in 4A

    District 2-4A will remain intact for the next two-year block of time, the New Mexico Activities Association determined Wednesday.
    Santa Fe High School will keep its status as a Class 4A team and will remain in the district along with Los Alamos, Bernalillo, Española Valley and cross-town rival Capital, the NMAA determined at its Board of Directors meeting.
    The NMAA is the governing body of most interscholastic prep sports in the state and determines the districts in which its member schools compete.
    When enrollment figures came out during the summer, it was determined by the NMAA that Santa Fe had surpassed the threshold of Class 4A enrollment, currently 1,650 students. Beyond 1,650 students, teams move up to Class 5A.

  • A twist on death

    Autumn doesn’t officially start until Sept. 23, but already the leaves on the trees are beginning to fall and hot summer nights have given way to cool evenings. Halloween is right around the corner and soon little ghosts and goblins will hit the streets seeking treats to satisfy their craving for sweets. The Fuller Lodge Art Center is also getting into the spirit with their “Muerto” show opening set for 5-7 p.m. Friday.
    The show is a six-week tribute honoring endings. Opinions on death are as unique as people are. Some see death as a transcendental experience, while others see it as the ultimate end. Some have a melancholy attitude about it, while others have a sense of humor about dying.
