  • Mora County Notebook - Work camp at Mora Presbyterian church

    Last week a group of 27 adults and youth from Texas spent the week at the Mora Presbyterian Church repairing, painting, yard work and help in the Community Garden. They also held a three - day Vacation Bible School for local children and youth who participated in a few community service projects, as well as Bible study, which consisted of making table and wall decorations for Mora’s Senior Center and inspirational cards for the Mora Church’s food bank. The Bible School ended with a program and dinner for all families involved.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: How my mind works: From kites to cows

    Our dense, conifer-rich forest dodged a bullet over our fourth of July weekend. The rains came, but the always- threatening lightening did not. That translates into no fires here so far, thankfully.

    Obviously, there is a little kid still in all of us, and that was very evident, right down the road from this ranch on the 4th.

    Our Pendaries neighbors hosted a kite flying event, in the open space behind the new John Harrington Memorial Garden.

  • Mora County Notebook - Mora Little League season wraps up

    The closing ceremony for the Mora Little League Baseball Teams took place on June 19.

    The Little League would like to thank those who took part, players, parents, and volunteers who helped make this summer a success.

    After the closing of the local season, the Mora Little League sent an All- Star team to the district tournament which began on late last month in Las Vegas.

    They played three games before they won their first game, and lost the two others.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: History repeats itself

    I can’t resist one last column about our Las Vegas and area history as recorded in my copy of the May 30, 1954 edition of the Denver Post. This story only proves history does repeat itself.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: We aren’t just the other Las Vegas any more

    As I continue to marvel at the huge newspaper story in my old, ragged copy of the Denver Post (May 30, 1954) The July issue of New Mexico Magazine lands in my mailbox. “Las Vegas Historic Revival” is headlined on the cover, no less!
    Turn to page 36, and you will discover seven (yes, 7) pages of fabulous photographs and text about “our town,” no less.
