  • 'Five Women Wearing the Same Dress'

    A letter from Frances, the bride’s cousin

    Dear Cousin Tracy,

    I would be simply thrilled to be one of your bridesmaids.  I am so glad to hear that you are settling down. You were a bit wild when you were younger, so I have long worried about the eternal health of your soul. I have always kept you in my prayers. I am thankful that God answered my prayers and has shown you the value of a steady relationship. 
    I was delighted to hear that the wedding reception will be at your family’s big country house. I have fond memories of visiting that grand, beautiful house when I was little and I am so excited to see it again.

    Lobo baseball tops Red Raiders

    LUBBOCK, Texas – The University of New Mexico Lobos got a measure of revenge from a loss earlier this year against Texas Tech Wednesday night, as they beat the Red Raiders 8-4.
    UNM used an early scoring surge to claim the victory over Texas Tech. UNM scored five runs in the first two inning then rallied after Texas Tech cut the lead to 5-4 in the sixth inning.
    Lobo pitcher Bobby Mares earned the victory, throwing five innings of hitless ball and gave up just one unearned run.
    Lobos’ second baseman Kyle Stiner led off the game with a home run. Stiner’s homer was followed up by a RBI single from designated hitter Jake Nelson to give the Lobos an early 2-0 lead.

  • Football: Lockout adds more drama to NFL draft

    NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL draft always is a guessing game. Never has it been accompanied by so much uncertainty.
    Not just who will go first overall — the betting favorite is Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton — but who goes where and when beyond that. Will the Patriots trade down again and again, as they always seem to do? Or will the Jets trade up, as they normally do?
    This year, the selection process has the added element of players being locked out by owners, and a judge temporarily blocking the lockout earlier this week. Should the league be forced to reopen for business before or during the draft, the result could be even more chaos.
