BISBEE — Coming off a valiant performance last week at arch-rival Douglas, the Bisbee High football team closes out a trying season tonight at home against Thatcher, the No. 4 ranked team in Division V.

SIERRA VISTA — Last season it was the Buena boys cross country team that was plagued by injuries, while the girls enjoyed the benefits of strong pack running. This year, the situation has been reversed, as the girls haven’t been able to put their five best runners on the course all season, but the boys have been strong and deep. Today in Gilbert, both teams will look to finish in the top eight out of 16 teams in Section 2...

SIERRA VISTA — With a win Friday night in the regular season finale over Sunnyside, the Buena High football team can clinch its first state playoff berth since 1993. Even with a loss, the Colts would likely still get in, but the last thing the Colts want to do is back into state, fall in the seedings, which would make an already difficult first round game of state even tougher, or see the final game of their 15 seniors at Loveless...

To the Editor: I’m writing this letter in support of Mr. Benjamin Mostyn for Cochise County Sheriff.

To the Editor: The City of Sierra Vista has placed a question on the November ballot (Question 2 Electric Franchise) that, if approved, will double your Sulphur Springs electric bill — for the next 25 years! The city (not SSVEC) is requiring this new tax as part of a 25 year renewal contract with SSVEC who will collect the money for the city. The way this issue has been put forth is dishonest. You’ll notice there is no mention...

One of the great things about the Bisbee 1000 Stair Climb is you can do it ‘your way.’ You can train all year and go for the win. You can train now and then and hope for under and hour, or you can do whatever works for you and go for the finish. All of these are admirable and honorable. There’s also the popular filling in for someone who registered but couldn’t make the event. I know of at least three people who...

As voters cast their ballots in the newly drawn Legislative District 14, the choice for state senator is clear.
