  • Palabras Pintorescas: Edith, Ruth and Charlie left us too soon

    December can be a sad month for many of us. Both of my parents died Christmas week a long time ago. And this year a lot of us lost some very special people who impacted our lives in many and varied ways.

    I still can’t believe there were three funerals in just five days last month: Edith Moore, Ruth Fort and Charlie Hillis.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Let’s bring back annual ‘Rails and Trails’ days

    Distracted should be my middle name. This time I am looking through a box of old papers (mostly newspapers) and I find a copy of “The Valmora Sun” a monthly newspaper published by the tuberculosis patients at my old home, Valmora.

    This April 1939 copy has a historically fun advertisement on the back page.

    It is a full page ad (larger than 11 by 13) that reads: “Announcing... The First Annual American Legion Cowboy’s Reunion).

  • 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.
