Past deputies take issue with Gossett

Kevin Wilson Two former deputies with the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office agree that budget shortfalls are a problem within the department.

Zias start season with two losses

By Dave Wagner Not being able to get outdoors before Wednesday’s games didn’t seem to hurt the Colorado State University-Pueblo softball team.

Late push negates late push for Zias

By Kevin Wilson A post-game conversation took an unusual turn in the corridors of Greyhound Arena Thursday night, with Abilene Christian coach Shawna Lavender apologizing to Zia coach Dan Buzard for winning.
