  • Palabras Pintorescas - ‘Better luck next time, Carl’

    Every glorious October is different in the mountains. I know this because I have lived in these mountains for so long. Yes, we have had a few fall rains, sparse by old time standards, but at least the dust isn’t that deep yet.

    This October aspens show of reds, golds, greens and every color in between, has really been spectacular, and has lasted for a while.

  • Mora County Notebook - Documentary highlighting fracking shown

    There were two showings of Rooted Lands last weekend in Mora, although the official premiere takes place on Saturday in Las Vegas.

    The Mora showings took place at Tapetes de Lana this past weekend.

    A large group of people attended the first showing on Saturday evening. The documentary was shown again on Sunday afternoon which was also well attended by the local citizens.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - I wonder what Doc would be thinking now

    Schools are in full operation. Flu shots are now available. The itchy eyes and runny nose syndrome known as allergies is still prevalent. And, curses of curses upon us. The kids come home with the cold bug. Fortunately, I rarely get a cold. That is because I think I have met every cold virus there is so now may have somewhat of an immunity. Is this a possible plus for old age?

  • Palabras Pintorescas - The pesky cockleburs

    I now know the answer to the old adage: “What is worse, a bee in your bonnet, or a burr in your bathrobe?” I’ve been stung by a bee or two, but I haven’t had burrs in my bathrobe very often.

  • Nora Lopez celebrates 80th birthday

    Chacon is a very good place to live. Many people there make it to 80 years and beyond.

    Nora Lopez is one of them.

    Her children and grand children held a surprise birthday party for her on her 80th birthday last week.

    The family and many friends and neighbors from Chacon and Mora gathered at the VFW hall to honor her with the big celebration. She was happily surprised as she was escorted into the building and found that they had completely fooled her on the reason for the ride to Mora.
