Your bias is showing through Felix.
Don't get me wrong, it's good that you cover Mayfield, but just for a little bit of trivia on a sunday night...

Question #1
Did you know there was a school on the east mesa?

Question #2
Who is the 3-5A district champ in baseball?

Question #3
How about softball???

You gotta put away your old letter jacket Felix. How long ago was high school?
All we want is balanced coverage for all three schools. That would be a good start!

You are doing great job. i a have seen you at many Onate games.

Wait a minute! Oñate has gotten more coverage this year in baseball and softball, etc. What messes up the coverage is when there are late games that don't make the newspaper deadline.

So why shouldn't Felix report what is deserved from those schools/students that have worked so hard to become winners? They should be recognized because afterall they prevailed and worked as a team, didn't they? Felix there is no bias, you are just reporting it, as it is. Some people are just JEALOUS and you'll never satisfy everyone, anyway.
