Mora County

  • Mora County Notebook - 2014 is one for the history books

    The year 2014 will go down in the history books of Mora County. Several people attended nationwide conferences and the sports programs did well against their peers this past year. It was a year that many will remember from homecoming in January to the annual fiestas in July.

    There were good times and times of grief this past year.

    In 2014, the county lost two wonderful individuals who had strong impacts for generations of Mora residents.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: A November picnic in our mountains

    Well, winter is finally here, according to the calendar. And I never know what I will find in my cluttered boxes of papers.

    Here’s yesterdays case in point.

    A small, nondescript newspaper fell out of a larger paper in that box. What a surprise that was! It was the “Valmora Chatter.” printed in November 1931, no less. And the lead story on the front page is titled “Dr. Brown conducts picnic to Mora.”

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Another find of treasured memories

    You guessed it . . . I can hear my kids say, “Oh, no, Mom has found yet another old picture.” Yes, kids you are right, and I can weave a whole story around and about this picture.

  • Mora County Notebook - A bit of the valley in the Duke City

    A little bit of Mora and San Miguel counties is in the metro area of Albuquerque this holiday season. For numerous years,

    Ted Roybal and his family have been selling freshly cut white fir and piñon trees from the Mora and Pecos mountains to residents of the Albuquerque and Rio Rancho area.

    “I have been doing it for years,” Roybal, a resident of Rainsville, said in a telephone interview Thursday. “I was born into the business and have been doing it all my life.”

  • Palabras Pintorescas: A spring-like day in the middle of December?

    What is wrong with this picture? Here I sit at my typewriter; it is almost the middle of December and it is 55 degrees at noon here at 8,250 feet elevation. I just came inside and it feels like a spring day outside.

    I have one of my “ugly” Christmas sweaters on (I have never thought they were ugly!) and daughter Sherry just told me there was a shop near her in Phoenix that advertises and sells dozens of ugly sweater cookies, no less.

    The ugly sweater shop also is doing well, she says, even in  the warm and hot Arizona.
