Regular visitors to this region understand what writer D.H. Lawrence meant when he said, "Touch this country and you will never be the same again."

Santa Fe, New Mexico -- For flatlanders escaping sizzling temperatures, summer in Santa Fe means enjoying the cool, refreshing mornings and pleasant evenings that come with the city's elevation of 7,199 feet. Welcome to the state capital with the highest elevation. Founded in 1610, this is also the oldest state capital in the United States.

Summer is Santa Fe is an afternoon shower that blows in from the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to bring a welcome respite from the summer sun as shoppers study the wares of street vendors in the Plaza, the heart of downtown Santa Fe.

Native American artists line the sidewalk in front of the Palace of the Governors which dates back to 1610. Custom jewelry and art are displayed on blankets and vendors can describe every detail about their particular craft.

Even the most ambitious visitors eventually learn to pace themselves because, if you include the St. Francis Dr./Railyard area and the loop of Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe is home to almost 1,000 unique boutiques and shops.

Along with shopping and spicy cuisine, art is another theme woven into the colorful fabric that is Santa Fe and the countless examples of public art are only a hint of what this city has to offer. With more than 250 art galleries to explore, only New York City can boast of more galleries.

Santa Fe has earned a reputation as one of the world's great art cities, although the local art scene dates back to humble beginnings in the 1920s when recently relocated painters Josef Bakos, Willard Nash, Will Shuster, Walter Mruk and Fremont Ellis began assembling simple adobe structures along Camino del Monte Sol. Jokingly calling themselves "five nuts in mud huts," all five were influential artists who launched a legacy that contemporary Santa Fe artists continue to expand.

If you like the outdoors, golf, hiking and cool weather in the summer, then my "go to" spot in New Mexico is Cloudcroft.  Small town at about 9,000 feet.  I take my boys camping there every summer to escape the west Texas heat.  It is usually has a high in the low 70's and lows in the 40's in August.  It is a sleepy little down, so if you want more excitement you can head down the mountain about thirty miles to Ruidoso that has much more to do including horse racing.

Great place!!! Like it much better than Ruidoso which is also another great place to visit. Family used to have a cabin in Ruidoso and we would try to take the "long-cut" and go through Cloudcroft every chance we could.

Can also recommend Capitan (Smoky Bear) and Lincoln (Billy the Kid) as okay place to visit if your in the area

Sadly a lot of the places in this area were hit hard this past year.

Thought it might be near the lava fields

I'm just goofing with everyone.

I have been just about everywhere and seen just about everything in New Mexico, except the ice cave, so I still have at least one reason to go back.

      DENTON, Texas – Fifth-year running back DeAndre Torrey was one of 57 players named to the watch list for the 2021 Paul Hornung Award presented by Texas Roadhouse given annually to the nation’s most versatile player, the Louisville Sports Commission announced Thursday. 
       
      Torrey, who ranks among the top offensive skill players in North Texas' recent history, ranks seventh in program history for career rushing touchdowns (23), is tied for eighth in career total touchdowns (rushing/receiving/returns) with 27, stands 12th in career rushing yards (2,013) and is ninth in career all-purpose yards (3,324). The Gautier, Miss. native had 851 all-purpose yards and six touchdowns in 2020.
       
      The Paul Hornung Award, now in its 12th season, is given annually to the most versatile player in major college football by the Louisville Sports Commission in the memory of the late football legend and Louisville native Paul Hornung. The winner and his family will be honored at the annual Paul Hornung Award dinner at the Galt House Hotel in downtown Louisville in March 2021. 
       
      The 2021 watch list players represent 53 universities from all 10 football conferences, plus four independent schools, that are part of the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. The SEC leads the conferences with nine players; the Big Ten and Big 12 each landed eight players; C-USA, Mountain West and Pac 12 each have five players; the AAC and ACC have four; and the MAC and Sun Belt have three each. Independents Army, BYU, Liberty and Notre Dame each have one player on the list. 
       
      The Paul Hornung Award has created an impressive legacy in 11 years including seven winners who were first round NFL draft picks – DeVonta Smith, Tavon Austin, Odell Beckham Jr., Shaq Thompson, Christian McCaffrey, Jabrill Peppers and Saquon Barkley. 
       
      Hornung, who passed away in his hometown at age 84 on Nov. 13, 2020, played every position in the offensive backfield during his career with the Irish in the 1950s and also played defensive safety, punted, placekicked and returned kickoffs. He was named All-America at quarterback as a senior and won the Heisman Trophy in 1956, then was the first player selected in the NFL draft, going to Green Bay. He earned NFL MVP honors for the Packers in 1961 as a triple-threat halfback and placekicker by setting a single-season NFL scoring record that stood for 46 years. He is a member of the College and Pro Football Halls of Fame, and Vince Lombardi once called him, "The most versatile man ever to play the game." 
       
      North Texas opens the 2021 season at Apogee Stadium against Northwestern State at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 4.  Season tickets, mini plans and single-game tickets for the 2021 season are now available online. Any ticket-related questions may be directed to the Mean Green Athletics Ticket Office via email at ticketoffice@unt.edu or by phone at (940) 565-2527.

      The Big 12 has two choices. 
      It can re-stock, looking for inventory to replace Oklahoma and Texas,  rebuilding to at least 10 schools or it can make a major move and add two, four, six or 8 schools to reach the 16-team super conference level.
      The Big 12 had a chance to expand a few years ago and chose to maintain the status quo, a ;move which was made from a position of strength.
      That no longer exists.
      Sources in the AAC say Aresco has been working the phones and the zoom  call network constantly for the past several days, putting together  a deal that will be more proactive, rather than reactive.
