Mayfield Will Host Cleveland for Title

Both teams came back from 14-0 deficits in the semi-fials. Both teams faced each other last year in the playoffs. Both teams were seeded at the top of the rankings in New Mexico's Class 5-A.
Last night Kirk Potter's Cleveland Storm beat crosstown rival Rio Rancho, and Mike Bradley's Mayfield Trojans put away a pesky Manzano team to advance to the championship game.
The game will be played in Las Cruces at the Field of Dreams next Saturday at 1:00pm.



Snubbed by GOP, Johnson Weighs Libertarian Run

Gary Johnson
KOB TV - Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson is thinking about pulling out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination and switching to another party. Johnson said he is considering running for the Libertarian Party nomination, to keep his dark horse candidacy alive and keep his issues on the table. He told our media partners at the Santa Fe New Mexican that he feels "abandoned" by the Republican Party. Johnson said the Libertarians have made "overtures" and that he thinks he would have a fair chance to win their nomination. Johnson has been left out of all but two of the Republican presidential debates, and lately the polls don't include his name. "It's the Gary Johnson rule," he said back in September. "They get together and they decide what rule do we have to come up with to just exclude Gary Johnson and that's the rule they apply." Johnson recently asked the Republican National Committee to help him with the problem, but he was discouraged by the response he received. Read full story here: News New Mexico

"Black Friday"


From Arab Spring to Echoes of Adolf Hitler in Eygpt

Ynet - A Muslim Brotherhood rally in Cairo's most prominent mosque Friday turned into a venomous anti-Israel protest, with attendants vowing to "one day kill all Jews." Some 5,000 people joined the rally, called to promote the "battle against Jerusalem's Judaization." The event coincided with the anniversary of the United Nations' partition plan in 1947, which called for the establishment of a Jewish state.
However, most worshippers who prayed at the mosque Friday quickly left it before the Muslim Brotherhood's rally got underway. A group spokesman urged attendants to remain for the protest, asking them not to create a bad impression for the media by leaving. Speakers at the event delivered impassioned, hateful speeches against Israel, slamming the "Zionist occupiers" and the "treacherous Jews." Upon leaving the rally, worshippers were given small flags, with Egypt's flag on one side and the Palestinian flag on the other, as well as maps of Jerusalem's Old City detailing where "Zionists are aiming to change Jerusalem's Muslim character." Propaganda material ahead of Egypt's parliamentary elections was also handed out at the site. Read full story here: News New Mexico
