      Woodie:
                  The message below comes from the author of the Sonora N. G. book announced a week ago. After reading the message I couldn't avoid thinking he was writing about Mogollon !

      Hola: One of the key towns I have been researching for the Sonora Narrow Gauge book is a mining town just south of the Arizona border called Cananea: Unfortunately I have not spent as much time in Cananea as I would have liked as it is the epicenter of drug cartel activity, and for the last four years has been the scene of a labor strike at the mine which has made it a very tense place-during one of my visits I was involved in a armed confrontation that closed the highway for 7 hours. One of the places I had hoped to visit was the archives of the Cananea Consolidated Copper Co/mining museum there that closed down many years ago. Unfortunately about two weeks ago the building housing the archives and thousands of irreplaceable historic photographs was burned during a labor dispute. :(
