  • Palabras Pintorescas: Saddle up, cowgirl

    Once in a while I run into a photograph that makes me stop and stare, then burst out laughing. That surely is the case this time. Imagine having that old box camera ready to shoot just as the action takes place. I’d say that photographer should have been given an award of some kind.

    Yes that is my mother, Alice Gellenthien, helping a lady mount a horse. The lady (I don’t know who she is) was probably short, possibly “portly” as my mother would say, and was probably visiting from a far away place, such as Chicago.

  • Mora County Notebook: Birthday tradition continues for Garcia

    On Wednesday morning a large group of friends of Lazaro Garcia gathered at Hatcha’s for his birthday breakfast. This has been a tradition for more than 30 years with the exception of last year when the whole community gathered to help him celebrate his 100th  birthday.

    Now that he is 101, he has continued the traditional celebration with breakfast with his friends. It began more than three decades ago with a few men who gathered at Almanzar’s Café in Cleveland.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Objects that make a point

    A long time ago I was involved in a bunch of civic- minded organizations and became a sort-of ambassador and representative of Mora County. I attended a meeting of the Association of Counties and each of us was given a small plastic bag with “treasures enclosed.” I found that bag recently, just in time to share its message with my grandson.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Accidents bring back memories of train wreck

    Once in a while bad news bumps good news off the front page of the paper and the radio and television programs. Two area car wrecks come to mind when I mention this.

    I am closely related to one of our fire department first responders, and he was called out early in the morning here because of a head-on crash down our road a few miles. The injuries were severe, but the occupants survived.

    Romero worked long and hard with the cooperation of the administration to put the program together.
    He also served as master of ceremonies and gave the main speech.
