By Marty Mayfield

The ladies made it home as they hosted Santa Rosa for their first home game of the season in what turned out to be a calamity of events.

First the game was scheduled for Tuesday but got moved to Monday and it was supposed to be a varsity then JV game at 4:00 p.m. But it ended up being a varsity double header that began at 3:00 p.m. with Raton taking an early lead and putting the ribbons on game with a 16-0 win over the young and inexperienced Santa Rosa Lady Lions in four innings. Natasha Archuleta lead the Lady Tigers from the mound and where she had little trouble throwing “K”s during the first game. 

Santa Rosa is in an independent class this year as this is their first year to play softball. Once they have a year or two in the books they will be assigned to District 5AAA with Raton. 

After a break in action the second game got under way once again with Raton taking the early lead with the hard bats and aided by a couple of walk offs runs. Santa Rosa did manage to get the bases loaded placed a runner across home plate. Game two however ended early as Raton closed the game on the 10-run rule in the fifth inning. 

Raton will now to Saturday for a game with Estancia at 1:00 p.m.

RHS at the 2015 State Spirit

By Marty Mayfield 

KRTN Multi-Media

The Raton High cheer and dance teams traveled down the road to Albuquerque to compete in the State Spirit competition Friday and Saturday.

This year both teams competed in a different class which meant new competition and the second year back in the Pit. The cheer squad competed in Class AAA while the dance team was clumped in with class A through 4A. For dance this means seeing some old nemesis like St Mikes, Hope Christian and Silver City.  Raton and Tularosa were the only teams in class AAA so NMAA clumped the four classes together for the competition.

Cheer will compete in class AAA against teams like Pecos and Clayton, who will likely be Raton’s biggest competition. 

 After Friday’s competition KRTN spoke with both coaches, despite a bobble during the cheer competition coach Linda Ortiz was pleased with the girls performance and was looking forward to Saturday’s competition. Dance coach Sue Holland felt her team did well despite some injuries. 

Saturday’s performanes were different for each team as they had different criteria to meet. According to cheer coach Linda Ortiz the girls had done their routine flawlessly in practice but once on the floor of the Pit the girls had difficulty hitting their lifts. Ortiz told KRTN that their scores suffered Saturday due to the problems but they were less than one point behind Tucumcari for third.  

On the other hand Raton Tiger Cats dance saw their performance improve over Friday’s score and a change in how the awards were handed out. Dance went into the competitom knowing they had to compete with the 4A schools. When the awards ceremony started Tularosa the only other team in 3A to compete was awarded the 1st place trophy for class A-3A while St. Mikes took 1st place in 4A And trophies were awarded to 2nd place Hope Christain and 3rd place Sandia Prep. 

The girls will take a month or so off and begin preparing for next school year with their first performances to come in September when Raton football takes to the field for their home opened September 4th against La Junta.

MCMC Upgrades Equipment and Personnel

Miners’ Colfax Medical Center in Raton continues to upgrade equipment, medical services and personnel. CEO Shawn Lerch visited KRTN’s “This, That, and the Other” program on Friday, March 27th and told about the newest piece of equipment, the Ultrasound 4D machine. The latest technology usually found only in major metropolitan hospitals, the 4D Ultrasound will produce images just like a picture which will greatly enhance obstetrics, cardiology and pulmonary diagnostics. The machine was purchased with money from a previous appropriation from the NM Legislature. 

Lerch also announced that MCMC will make a quantum leap in its service level as it will be getting a new CT scanner for the XRay Department. The new machine will have a resolution eight times greater than the current machine and will greatly enhance diagnostics, especially cardiac.

Lerch said that the new clinic construction is moving along quickly and will be complete by the end of July.  The $3.2 million, 13, 000 square foot clinic has the outside walls up, and people should not be alarmed at the stark, yellow color. That color is just the seal coat with the final color set for a dark rust hue.

Lerch also said that the First Street Clinic is moving to the Clinic at the Acute Care Facility. The new phone number for Mimi Moore and Kirsten Adams is 575-445-7733.

As far as personnel goes, Lerch had some great news. When the clinic is complete, an additional 20 team members will be needed at MCMC. On the recruitment front, Lerch was pleased to announce that Dr. Christine Lopez, Doctor of Internal Medicine and Gerontology, will be setting up shop at the end of April and will also be the new Medical Director at Long Term Care. Lopez is the wife of Dr. Leonardo Lopez, who is currently on staff. The doctors will be joined by Dr. Haris Kazmi who specializes in pediatrics. The new clinic will have room for eight practitioners, and Lerch said their recruitment efforts are enhanced by the lure of the many outdoor activities and clean environment offered in our area. Lerch says they are searching for individuals who would enjoy what we have to offer, would be engaged and stay for a long term.

Lerch also had some good news about the Higher Education Task Force that is working on acquiring the former Highlands University building in downtown Raton. The acquisition should happen in the near future which will further enhance the continuing education certification and possibly even Masters programs in health- related fields.
