  • Surprises happen often and in different ways, thanks to this Palabras Pintorescas column. A phone call from Tim Knight, who lives in Peralta, surprised me. He followed this visit with a fun letter about his 1966 memory of his high school years at Robertson High in Las Vegas.

    His grandparents, Cordelia and John Thomas, had a 40-acre farm just north of Mills and Seventh Street here. They also had the High County Sporting Goods Store on north Grand Avenue back in the ‘60s. Some of us old timers will remember this store, I’ll bet.
