    Heavy Metal: Does this sound like a headliner rock band to you? No, it’s not a rock band, but well describes the March/ April exhibit at the Las Vegas Arts Council (Gallery 140) featuring artists out of New Mexico Highlands University’s foundry.

    The exhibit will be on display from March 5 to April 29. The gallery is open, usually, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. An artist reception is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 10 at the Las Vegas Arts Council.

    SATURDAY SÁBADO

  • We have many talented workers in Mora who help keep the community going. Most of them are graduates of Mora High School.

    We have plumbers, electricians, contractors, linemen and business men, and those who work behind the scenes doing thankless jobs for our community
    One who aspires to be a contractor, plumber or electrician has to work in that area under a licensed contractor for several years before he can go through a rigorous test to qualify as a licensed contractor in building, plumbing and electrical work. Some go to school to learn a trade.

  • Just the other day (sort of a weary and worn out saying) I was invited to join Sharon Vander Meer behind the microphones on KFUN radio where she hosts a weekly program, “Writer’s Blog.” Sharon asks some great questions about the author/writer’s history, and that got me to thinking, researching and digging out some old files.
