  • Palabras Pinturescas: Wal-Mart stands on grounds where rodeos were performed

    I continue to be surprised at what the next mail will bring. My fun readers surprise me with events that are obviously historic, as in old programs. And thankfully I am old enough to remember things, events of so long ago.

    I received a program recently for the Las Vegas, New Mexico Roosevelt Rough Riders Cowboys’ Reunion Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Aug. 6 through Aug. 8, 1954; rodeo events at Legion Park.

  • Who ‘dun’ it? Mora theater company, that’s who

    “Murder on the Petulant Express” was brilliant. Oh true, some New York theater snob would probably have sniffed, but this isn’t New York, and we are thankfully lacking in a preponderance of snobs in this area. The fledgling thespians of Mora Area Community Theater put together an outstanding dinner/mystery, performed at the Mora Valley Baptist Church last Friday evening. If this event is any indication, the company of Mora players has a bright future.

  • Palabras Pinturescas: Farmers, ranchers worry about lack of snow this winter

    What is going on, weather-wise? We should be showing snow this morning, as I write this. The temperature is 55 degrees and wind gusts have topped 50 miles per hour. This translates into all available soil moisture being sucked out of the ground. Those of us who are farmers and wildland firefighters are now very worried, rightfully so.

  • Palabras Pinturescas: Longing for return of Montezuma pond

    I am always happy to hear from my readers and they often share interesting stories with me. A reader asked me recently about the availability of that so- much-fun sport, ice-skating at the skating pond just north of Montezuma. Yes, folks, we used to have a fabulous skating pond up there.

    The loss of this treasure (to many of us) is very real. The last and bottom dam on the Gallinas River is that canyon was large by many standards. The big cliff just to the south of the dam shaded it. This ideal location provided all the necessary elements to freeze thick, clear ice.
