of Lincoln County

By Marilyn Burchett Mary Norton Joy of Carrizozo was the guest speaker at the Felix Canyon Ranch located between Artesia and Cloudcroft. The ranch has a long, interesting history, and Mary had a connection to it. Robert Casey traded 280 head of cattle for a ranch on the Hondo River near Picacho in 1868. Robert later discovered the land on the Felix River and claimed squatter’s rights to the land by building a half-dugout of creek rocks and logs and grazing a small herd of cattle on it, but never filed on the land. On Aug. 2, 1875, Robert Casey was murdered in Lincoln by William Wilson, resulting in the first legal hanging in Lincoln County. In 1876, John Tunstall, an Englishman, displaced Robert Casey’s widow from the Felix River land by using the Desert Land Act. He drove his herd to the Felix Valley and occupied the dugout until he could build a four-room adobe house at the upper springs of the Felix River. The dugout was used then as a rider’s camp. It was believed that Billy the Kid stayed here while working for Mr. Tunstall. The murder of John Tunstall in 1878 saw the beginning the Lincoln County War. The next owners of the ranch were James J. Dolan and partners, ironically the enemy of Tunstall in the Lincoln County War. Dolan built a six room adobe house for his family at the lower springs on the Felix River before dying of natural causes in 1898 at the age of 50. Later the ranch was sold to S. S. Ward and partners in 1902 under the name of the Felix Cattle Company. It remained under their control until 1929 when Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Hendricks, the head of the Hendricks clan, bought the ranch and renamed it the Flying H Ranch. The Dolan house, with adobe walls nearly two feet thick and covered with white lumber siding, became their home. “The White House” as it was known became the headquarters of a small settlement of ranch workers. This settlement became the home of Mary Norton and her family for about 14 years. In 1941, Mary’s father, Chalk Norton, moved to the Flying H Ranch to work for Mr. Hendricks. Chalk brought with him his wife, Lilly, and two daughters, Mary, who was almost 7 years old, and Laura Lee (now Stover) who was 5 years old. Mary said that they lived in several different places on the ranch before moving into the dugout in 1945 that was once the residence of the Casey’s. By this time, it had been enlarged, as a couple before

them had gathered the rock from the Felix River and built a front room onto the dugout. The Norton family moved out of the dugout in 1949. The Hendricks were afraid that the roof would cave in, so they built a new house for the Norton family. Mary, laughing, said that the roof didn’t cave in, though, until just a few years ago.

Every day, officers from the Roswell Police Department (RPD) respond to multiple vehicle burglaries. Various items have been taken, such as cell phones, purses, money and even guns. The RPD would like to remind citizens to lock vehicle doors, and keep windows in the upright position when the automobile is unoccupied. Most times vehicles are burglarized due the vehicle being unsecured. If a motor vehicle is unlocked, it is an opportune time for

someone to burglarize the vehicle. Citizens should be proactive to ensure their belongings are secured. Do not become a victim of a vehicle burglary. Remember to lock all doors, and keep valuable items out of sight.

AGELESS MEDICINE Aesthetic Medicine Q & A and can’t make an angry face at myself it actually makes me feel better. Think about it. With one less person frowning at you life has to appear a little better.

Dr. Stephen Rath Fusion Medical Center, Ruidoso

Now that the elections are behind us, I thought it would be good to dedicate a column to answering some of the recent questions. As usual, feel free to either email or stop by Fusion Medical Spa with questions.

Q A 


How long does it take the human body to recover from dr. Stephen Rath three rides in the Air Force Centrifuge?

How will the results of the 2012 election affect aesthetic medi-

The short answer is there won’t be any major changes. Aesthetic medicine isn’t affected by changes in the insurance industry or the political arena. Caveat – Some patients may require a few more units of Botox over the next four years. Need a little extra help dealing with the smile or frown lines resulting from the election? Stop by Fusion Medical Spa and talk to me. We can help make anyone look and feel like their candidate won. (Yes, I posted this on Facebook last week. If you don’t follow us already, look us up. Everything that follows is new material).

Q A 


For the follow up… Does Botox really help depression?

Yes. This September’s Scientific American reported the results of a small study that showed a 47 percent decrease in depressive symptoms in the Botox group compared with a 9 percent reduction in the control group. So, Botox works on migraine headache symptoms, frown lines, and helps fight depression that doesn’t respond to typical treatment. The study author’s theory was Botox interrupted “feedback from the facial musculature to the brain.” I’m of the opinion that the visual feedback was more beneficial. When I look in the mirror


I don’t know. Ask me in a few weeks. As some areas get better I’m discovering new parts that are exquisitely tender. Fortunately, as long as no more than three years elapse between high G jet rides (F-16, T-38), a single qualifying ride is good for life. Parents and family already wonder what possessed me when they view the videos; I probably won’t be allowed to do it again if I expire. (Yes, the irony is intentional. I probably won’t be allowed to do it again even if I don’t expire due to the risk of expiring.)

Q A 

Do you really believe that time will end on Dec. 21?

I was pretty sure that time was ending when I was strapped in the centrifuge. I don’t think the Mayan technology was well advanced when they built their calendar, but it is possibly the reason why their calendar was shaped like a wheel. I am not planning any major events on Dec. 22 just in case. I would hate to have to cancel an appointment.

Disclaimer: Dr Stephen Rath, MD, DABA is a board certified anesthesiologist as well as the owner and medical director of Fusion Medical Spa located in Ruidoso. He is not an expert on time or time-management (ask the other Dr. Rath) but he looks forward to seeing the end of time on Dec. 21. Comments or questions? His email address is:

Broadway’s singular sensation–

‘A Chorus Line’

dazzles Spencer Thanksgiving week ALTO — In a Broadway revival dedicated to the late Pulitzer Prizewinning composer Marvin Hamlisch, “A Chorus Line” is at once a period piece and a brilliantly timeless work of musical theater about talented people who are striving to achieve their dreams – or at least to make a living. Set in the mid-1970s (the dazzling show first appeared on stage in 1975), the tale takes place before a long, thin, white line that stretches across a theater stage. On this bare stage, casting for a new Broadway musical is almost complete. For 17 dancers, this audition is the chance of a lifetime. It’s what they’ve worked for - with every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives. It’s the one opportunity to do what they’ve always dreamed – to have the chance to dance. “A Chorus Line” tells of the achingly poignant ambitions of these young professionals to land a job in the show, and it is a marvelous metaphor for all human aspiration. Tightly interwoven with the text is Mr. Hamlisch’s rhythmic, gleaming score, which mixes a range of mid-20th-century pop, jazz, classical and Broadway sounds to reflect these individuals’ musical worlds. The lyrics, by Edward Kleban, are very smart, yet often disarmingly seem

like everyday language. Driven by the rush of Mr. Bennett’s dynamic choreography, the mesh of story and songs is wonderfully seamless, especially in extended montages like the frenetic opening, “I Hope I Get It,” and “Hello Twelve, Hello Thirteen, Hello Love,” a complex salute to the million and one pains of growing up. Instantly recognized as a classic, the show is a brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compelling drama that has won nine Tony Awards®, including “Best Musical” and the Pulitzer Prize for drama, “A Chorus Line” is Broadway’s singular sensation with a slew of unforgettable musical numbers, including “At the Ballet,” “Dance: Ten; Looks: Three,” “The Music and the Mirror,” “What I Did for Love,” and “One (Singular Sensation)” in addition to the previously mention tunes. Don’t miss out on this lavish production, which features a cast of 30 singers, dancers and orchestra musicians in a celebratory cross-country revival. Show times are at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20 and Wednesday, Nov, 21. Excellent seats are available for $59 and $56. Call the Spencer Box Office at 575-336-4800 or go online to for tickets. A pre-performance Glazed Ham Buffet ($20) will also be available both nights at 5 p.m.
