Today's Features

  • September weather can be spectacular, and it surely was an absolutely perfect Sunday after last Sept. 11, when our neighboring community, Pendaries, hosted an area sampling of goods and more at the community center there. This was a real show, taste-and-tell event and we, the public, were asked to sample, visit with the various cooks and vote for our favorite foods.

    What could be better than cruising around tables of chiles, salsas and sips of our Mora County wines while visiting with friends and neighbors?

  • I’ve always been a political news junkie of sorts, mostly because I have been exposed to our New Mexico politics in quite a different way here at our isolated mountain guest ranch. I often watch “New Mexico in Focus” on Chanel 5 Friday night. This is a good way to learn more about what goes on in Santa Fe and beyond.
