  • Palabras Pintorescas: Praises for old ‘Victorian Gazette’

    It is fun to have new folks move into our area. I know from having guests here at the ranch for so many years, that all who come seem to be curious about this big area of New Mexico.

    It is no secret. When both individuals and tour groups come our way, they ask questions, walk our streets, read our signs and want more information. One good source of local and regional information is our Citizen’s Committee for Historic Preservation.

  • Mora County Notebook - Moberg’s garage and towing celebrates 50th anniversary

    Submitted to the Optic

    Ernie Moberg celebrated 50 years in business earlier this month with friends and family at his shop in Watrous. His brother and sister were able to come all the way from Minnesota to celebrate with him. 

    The celebration include barbecued elk and a huge triple flavored cake. A hilarious roast reminisced about the many injuries Moberg has survived and his friend, Randy Huston, sang a special song for him titled “Lucky.”

  • Where the bad bugs find their targets

    And now Gascon Point has a dusting of snow, which will probably be gone in a day or two, and thankfully there are no “vote for me” election ads in the various media outlets. This includes radio, television, and newspapers, plus signs in some really strange places. Many of us voted early, and no, none of use voted often as some might surmise. And I do continue to remind my family and friends of the importance of voting. Just visit a foreign country for a week or two and one will understand. Voting is a privilege.

  • The road map of New Mexico in 1931

    Well, what do you know? I have a granddaughter who likes old things and family history. Yes, Jennifer flew in (she’s the helicopter pilot in this family) and joined our family for my 80th birthday party recently. The helicopter stayed in Albuquerque and she came to the ranch with her parents from Ruidoso.
