  • Palabras Pintorescas: Higgins, an amazing water witcher

    Yes, January was a good wet weather month. Our Gascon weather station recorded 30 inches of show and 1.50 inches of moisture here last month. These snows have melted slowly, which will hopefully seep more water into our fast-depleting aquifers.

    Thankfully I kept a column from the April 2, 2012, issue about witching for water. The writer, Tom McDonald, detailed at length the amazing ability Salvadore Higgins has as a Water Witcher.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Do kids learn alphabet by using tablet, screen?

    Time does fly when I’m having fun, and this winter has been no different. I am so inhibited to my faithful readers, and to my editors who catch my writing/spelling mistakes.

    A very special Christmas card came from a long time friend here.

    This greeting will be paid forward, for sure. And I just learned from Ron and Elaine Querry that Las Vegas will have a Cowboys’ Reunion Centennial Celebration July 31 to Aug. 9 this year. What welcome news to all of us rodeo fans, and you will read more about this soon.

  • Mora County Notebook - Pecos and Mora is more than a rivalry

    The Mora and Pecos rivalry at its best was shown on the court during last Friday’s homecoming games at Mora High School. For me it was the cycle of history repeating itself once again.

    Despite having a big rivalry on the floor, there are so many connections between the small northern New Mexico towns. For one, the main sport for both school districts, hence, the rivalry on the hardwood. Another connection is the number of people between the two towns that are related or good friends.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Alphabet cards created skillfully, but by whom?

    My friends know how unorganized I am, but once in a while I actually discover something that was put where it belonged. This time, Yes­—it does happen... I noticed some folders or something of that nature in a bookshelf totally devoted to children’s books. I must say I don’t get into that bookcase often now because I don’t have small children nearby, in my family now.
