  • Garden care tips for autumn

    • Divide perennials
    • Fertilize cool season grasses
    • Cut back on watering at the end of September
    • Renew mulch on perennial beds
    • Cut out canes on raspberry plants that bore fruit this season

  • Devastating budget cuts coming

    Now the fun part begins. Former state Rep. John Mershon of Alamogordo isn’t with us anymore but that’s what the conservative finance chairman would say right now as state lawmakers begin to wrestle with devastating budget cuts.

  • Kansas cruises past New Mexico State 42-16

    LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — D.J. Beshears was a defensive back last season as a Kansas freshman, but he played multiple roles on offense Saturday night.

    Beshears was a running back, wide receiver and kick returner as he scored three touchdowns, including a 96-yard kickoff return, in the first half to propel Kansas to a 42-16 victory over the New Mexico State.

    "I guess we've going to have to give him slash, slash," said Kansas quarterback Jordan Webb.
