  • Palabras Pintorescas: Egyptian Camel saddles needed to be banned

    Suddenly it is summer, and it is time to move the geranium jungle out of the living room and out on the deck. Hiding in plain sight is one of my two camel saddles. With Egypt now in the news, my two camel saddles and their history came to mind.

    Yes, my Aunt Elvira and I rode camels around the pyramids in Egypt during our big trip in 1953. Neither one of us knew what a camel saddle looked like, but there are the usual tourist photos of us riding these camels.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Gov. Cargo’s impact on Mora county

    New Mexico has lost a true friend recently. I have known David Cargo for a long time, and those of us who knew him well will never forget him. I can assure you of that.

  • Mora County Notebook: Remembering ‘Lonesome Dave’

    Gov. David F. Cargo will be greatly missed in our state of New Mexico. He has meant a lot to the people especially those in the small communities.

    His influential and caring concern for the state went far beyond his time as governor. He continued to be involved in the government and the needs of the small communities. In Mora, he was much loved by the people.

    He did so much for them and other small communities while he was governor and continued to show his concern afterwards.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: The threats of wildland fires

    Isn’t it amazing what a rain shower or two can do for one’s outlook, one’s hope that the monsoons are real? Yes, dull is bright, brown turns to green and layers of dust are now washed off that dry grass our horses and cows had to eat.

  • Mora County Notebook - Closing ceremony held for Little League

    The Mora Little League and tee-ball teams had a great season.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - The life of a country doctor

    It is time for yet another medical — as in Valmora — story. My readers know I was born and raised in that Tuberculosis Sanatorium, and the book “Hovels, Haciendas and Housecalls” was written about my doctor father and Valmora by Dorothy Simpson several years ago.
