  • Palabras Pintorescas: Staying true to football

    Would you believe after all these years of goofing off and playing around, I am still a tried and true football fan? And, yes, I am in a fantasy football league, and my partner, Kat and I plan to win big time this year. Yes, I have my favorite teams and favorite players, but what and who Kat and I pick and who we end up with are two different programs. So it goes in this fantasy world!

  • Mora County Notebook: Chacon water problems and blessings

    Editor’s note: Ruth Fort’s son, Paul, is president of the Agua Pura Water acquisition board.

    The Agua Pura Water Board has been struggling with water system problems for several weeks. There have been leaks in the lines to the consumers. They would get one place repaired and turn the water on and then another leak would show up. Estevan Sanchez and John Abeyta, certified operators, have worked tirelessly along with the rest of the board members and community people doing what they can to help.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Wrapping up the summer season

    Is summer really coming to an end? Time does fly when one is having fun, and fun we have had here at the ranch once again. Sharing nature’s bounty and nature’s beauty with our little people sure is fun.
    The little people can’t count hummingbirds buzzing my three feeders any better than I can. But they did take a lots of pictures of them, possibly for show-and-tell at school in the Washington D.C. area.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Remembering Petey Stark Salman

    My father’s Webster’s Dictionary (very well worn, obviously carried in his vest pocket around 1915 or so) uses very few words to define a word. I just looked up “grief.”

    This dictionary describes grief in two words: sorrow; misfortune. Yes I am sad as I write this column.

  • Mora County Notebook: Fatal plane crash site gets visitors

    Editor’s Note: In last week’s column the San Miguel/Mora County Fair princess Bailey Montoya’s father was inadvertently left out. Montoya’s father is Roy Montoya.

    Fifty years ago on Jan. 30, 1963 a B-52 bomber crashed in the mountains between Chacon and Guadalupita. The airmen were on a routine practice mission coming down low, when the high winds in the area tore the plane apart and scattered it over the mountains for six to eight miles.
