  • Palabras Pintorescas: Never run out of stories

    My fellow columnist, Art Trujillo, recently asked me if I ever ran out of ideas, stories I can write about. Obviously, the answer is “no” because things just pop up in my life and that reminds me of yet another tall tale or story.

  • Graduations, health fair keep valley busy

    Spring is here and all of the great activities that go with it are in full swing. It is a happy, exciting time especially at the Mora Schools.

    Last Tuesday, there was the Annual Health and Transitional Fair at the Joseph Montoya Gym. Many people from the community and the school attended the fair. The Mora/Colfax Head Start Program, Mora Valley Community Health Services, Mora Valley Health Council and School Based Health Centers sponsored the event.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Barker’s ‘Cowboy’s Christmas Prayer’ a favorite

    A recent letter to the editor in the New Mexican (the Santa Fe daily paper) by Georgia Snead caught my eye. I have known Georgia and her family for a very long time and yes, she is closely related to our famed writers, S. Omar and Elliot Barker. She wonders why Omar Barker was left out of a collection written by Walter Skold, titled “Reviving Dead Poets.”

  • Palabras Pintorescas: April winds nearly blew us away

    Yes, we almost blew away in April. Those bitter and ferocious winds kept a lot of us indoors. Just going out to the mailbox on our road was a challenge. That translates into doing indoor chores, and it doesn’t take much for me to get distracted.

  • Mora County Notebook - Basketball is a year-round sport for Mora

    Yes, basketball season is over as far as the high school schedule is concerned, but it is still there. They have the Amanda Serna Memorial Basketball Camp coming up during the summer months. Some of the Mora athletes are going to the big North/South competition. NBA is still showing on television. Mora students have been busy with baseball, softball and track now,  but basketball has always been and will always be the king of sports in the Mora Valley.
