  • Palabras Pintorescas: Doc: ‘I’ve been dying since 1924’

    The three-part series on the history of cancer caught my eye and I watched the whole six hours of the program with interest, to say the least. I remember my doctor father talking about the early days of his long medical profession, so I dug up an article written about him in 1985. His story almost parallels the story, the devastation of cancer a century ago.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Sweet Brother Bill’s 10 rules

    This column could be called a hodge-podge of somewhat newsworthy items, or just what’s left in the Easter basket after yet another rite and celebration of spring.

    I start with a weather report...no surprise there. Our mountain winter started in November with the first measurable snows here at our weather bureau reporting station, unless we get a big storm here in April, we will have recorded 86 inches of snow with a melt down in moisture content of 7-1/2 inches.
