  • Palabras Pintorescas: Honoring our late friends and neighbors

    The calendar says Fall in big letters, and this translates into Halloween and, in Mexico, The Day of the Dead — La Dia del Muerto. I have been in Mexico two different years for this very important event, and I enjoyed every visit to the events and the very elaborate altars honoring the dead.

  • Mora County Notebook: Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

    Americans observe Hispanic Heritage Month each year from Sept. 15 through Oct. 15. It is a tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched America and their society.

    The theme for this year is: “Many backgrounds, many stories, one American Spirit.” As I read the material in the internet many people who have influenced the history of the United States were shown. There have been congressmen, artists, lawyers, musicians, doctors, professors, writers, teachers, athletes, business folks, and many more.

    I found the new Ken Burns TV special programs on prohibition interesting, mainly because I had no idea what an impact (good or bad) drinking the various spirits had on our society. My sweet brother Bill, a reformed alcoholic, always said that if we could channel the brilliant minds who spent their lifetimes hiding that bottle of booze into progressive thinking, this world would tilt on its axis, all for the good.
