  • Palabras Pintorescas: CWriter has a compulsive book-buying gene

    Oh, My... what a fun party that was! In case you missed it, Tito and Mary Chavez celebrated 30 busy, fun and full years of being in Las Vegas very recently. Tito’s creative jewelery and Mary’s keen eye when it comes to showing off very good art is so obvious when one walks into their shop on our Bridge Street here. And as I write this, Tito is working on a very special project for me. He has vision far beyond mine when it comes to creativity!

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Contact lens in deep carpet causes frantic search

    Happy surprises are always welcome at my house, and I just had a wonderful surprise and visit with one of the kids/girls that worked for us a long time ago. The afternoon was spent with “Do you remember when...?” When our summer business, the dude ranch here, was running full time.

  • Mora board members take oath of office

Two of the members are newly elected members Tranquilino Hurtado and Dennis Romero. The third board member is George Trujillo, who was re-elected in the February school election. Trujillo has served as board member for a total of 20 years.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Knowing one’s history is crucial

    I looked forward to the recent senior profile column by Lupita Gonzales, a great story about our friends and neighbors, George and Joanne Sprenger. I met George and Joanne in the summer of 1975, right after they had come to Las Vegas. And, I had another story about them.

    Our Gascon Ranch sits at the end of the Gascon-Rociada Valley.
