Today's Features

  • I have an old, intricately designed and sewed patchwork quilt. I have worked many a jigsaw puzzle, and I have admired many beautiful mosaics in many different places. It takes talent to line up all of those pieces into a real work of art.
    Such is the case with a very new book about Las Vegas. “Learning Las Vegas, Portrait of a Northern New Mexico Place” by Elizabeth Barlow Rogers is an unbelievably good piece of journalism.

  • On Saturday, a large group of Mora County citizens gathered at the Mora School Board Room to hold their first strategic planning session with professional facilitators guiding the work.
