It’s really too bad. The new horror picture Lights Out is based on a very scary short film that garnered so much attention from studios that it was developed into a feature. It’s about the nasty, violent spirit of a girl who exists exclusively in the darkness...

Big New Releases!

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice - Two DC superheroes come to blows for two-and-a-half hours in this gloomy follow-up to the previous glum reboot of the Superman character. Despite the promise of glowering, fighting, and little in the way of resolution, many still lined up and forked over their money for the experience.

Former AD, teacher, coach retires to Albuquerque

CROWNPOINT – Her passion for teaching is surpassed only by her love of the kids she coached, and that’s one of the reasons Crownpoint High School’s Sheri Moore will be missed. Moore, who worked at Crownpoint High for 30 years in various capacities, recently announced her retirement at the end of the 2016 school year.

“Everyday, I felt like I had the best job in the world working with some great kids,” Moore said. “I will miss the interaction with the students and most of my athletes. I don’t know if the realization of retirement will set in until August.”

A Clinton, Iowa, native and graduate of the University of New...
