  • A treat for the mind, heart and soul

    Saturday night’s performance of “Parted Waters” at Teatro Paraguas in Santa Fe was a treat for the mind, heart and soul.  

    Local playwright Robert Benjamin’s drama of a New Mexican family grappling with their Judaic roots presents a credible snapshot of how three generations of Hispanic men come to different terms with their ancestry.  

    On yet another level, the play suggests the crucial need for acceptance and respect for cultural differences among all people.

    I wish I had. I regret not. Why didn’t I?

    I’m not old yet, but I know lots of sentences that start like that. They tend to revolve around high school. I wish I had spent more time thinking about what I wanted, instead of what other people might want. I regret not telling people who I was or what mattered to me. All I ever said was a bunch of crap.

    Persistence can pay off. Barranca Elementary School fourth-grader Cameron Harlow can attest to that statement.

    When a casting call for the movie, “Brothers,” was posted, Harlow’s mother, Linda, took him and his brother to audition for the movie. However, the casting director Marty Cherrix told Harlow he wasn’t needed.

    It wasn’t the last time Harlow would hear from Cherrix. Later, Cherrix contacted the aspiring actor to see if he would be interested in auditioning for another movie being filmed in New Mexico.

  • Boys basketball: Topper upset bid falls just short vs. Sundevils

    ESPAÑOLA – The first 12 minutes of Wednesday night’s game could scarcely have gone better for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team.

    The next four minutes, not so much.

    Meanwhile, the mighty Española Valley Sundevils nearly let a late 9-point lead slip away as Los Alamos star center Alex Kirk had a night to remember.

    Unfortunately, the Sundevils were able to hang on despite playing a sloppy, foul-riddled fourth quarter to beat the Hilltoppers 74-71 at Edward Medina Gymnasium.

  • Girls basketball: LA tops Academy at home

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team did just enough to turn back the efforts of a motivated Albuquerque Academy squad Wednesday night.

    SANTA FE — The Senate, for the second time, debated legislation aimed at closing an achievement gap for New Mexico Hispanic students, improving their high school graduation rates and getting more of them to college.
