 SIERRA VISTA — It’s tough to call a week three road game a must-win, but if this Buena Colts team winds up being the first since 1993 to reach the state playoffs, they’ll probably look back at tonight’s game at Sahuaro as the win that made it all happen. The 1-1 Colts face a Sahuaro team that has rolled over a pair of weak opponents to start the season, outscoring them 97-13. “I think we match up...

To the Editor: My dog died Thursday (Aug. 30) morning. He died crying and shivering in pain, on the floor of my minivan. He died in spite of my teen-aged son attempting to give him CPR, while I drove. He died because there isn’t a single veterinarian in this town who would take a call “after hours,” in spite of their advertisements claiming they have “emergency service.”  That may be true, but...
