Zozobra-Santa Fe's Hottest Party

Zozobra Tickets Still Only $10, Kids Ten & Under Free 

The Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe is thrilled by the support and response we are receiving from our entire New Mexico community as we approach the 92nd Burning of Zozobra on Friday, September 2, 2016.

The access points to Fort Marcy Park have been simplified by consolidating them on the Old Taos Highway to reflect the bridge closures in Fort Marcy Park. The streamlined plan allows the Kiwanis to maintain the traditional ticket price of $10 per person, with kids 10 and under free.

There is an understandable but untrue rumor afloat about a free Zozobra viewing area.

Long draught continues for New Mexico in this 1956 first and only appearance by its LL teams

By ARNIE LESHIN

The 60-year draught lives on, but for the Roswell Lions-Hondo Little League team, it’s also been oh too long that it’s gathered for a reunion.

Some of this 1956 Little League baseball championship team are gone, but enough remain so that they were able to recently come together at the Roswell Convention and Civic Center.

It was the first time in 33 years that those still with us were assembled.

C’mon Kaepernick, you need a more respected stand for protesting while our national anthem is being played

No doubt, you can play football, but politics is not your game and you need to address things with better plans

COMMENTARY by ARNIE LESHIN

Only in America can you make $12 mil a year for playing a game and disrespect the nation’s flag, all red, white and blue of our adopted colors.

I remember when Carlos Delgado reported to his new team, the New York Mets, and picked up where he left off, that being no where in sight when the national anthem rang out through then-Shea Stadium. The slugger’s case was a lack of respect for Hispanics in this country.

So he didn’t come out of the clubhouse

Sundays Bible verse

Psalm 51New King James Version (NKJV)

A Prayer of Repentance

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

51 Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions,
And my sin is always before me.
4 Against You, You only, have I sinned,
And done this evil in Your sight—
That You may be found just when You speak,[a]
And blameless when You judge.

True Conversion

"And when people escape from the wicked ways of the world by learning about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up with sin and become its slave again, they are worse off than before."

—2 Peter 2:20

Sometimes we hear about well-known people who claim to have made a commitment to Jesus Christ. Often, it is around election time. When they address Christians, they speak of their great faith in God. After the elections, we seldom hear about it again.

Then there are people who say they are believers, but a month or two later, they go back to their old ways again.

Capital High math teacher Jason Ware, former All-State kicker, kicks left in 50-yard field goal halftime promotion, loosing $25,000 prize

It had been over a decade since he attempted this

By ARNIE LESHIN

High enough, deep enough, wide left, but close enough that a slight wind could have blown it in.

It began as one of interest when Capital High math teacher Jason Ware walked to midfield at halftime. He looked like he knew what he was attempting, a 50-yard field goal to win $25,000 from the halftime promotion.

But not many knew he had been there before.

So while one person was situated under the north side goal posts and Ware was putting the ball in place for the holder, up it went and the Jaguars’ crowd as well as the

By ARNIE LESHIN

St. Michael’s opens volleyball season with Capital sweep behind solid defense

Second year for Lady Horsemen head coach Josie Adams

By ARNIE LESHIN

Good start in more ways than one for the St. Michael’s volleyball team

The Lady Horsemen opened Thursday night against visiting Capital High at Perez-Shelley gymnasium and came away with a straight-set 25-13, 25-15, 25-10 success.

In her second year as head coach, Josie Adams had praise for her back line, a liability last season. It didn’t allow many Jaguar hits to go unchallenged, plus it added to an improved blocking at the net.

“Our whole focus this summer was defense,” said Adams, “and everyone, even our front row,
