Vermejo Park Ranch: Wikis

Coordinates are for the address: 1 York Canyon, Raton NM 87740

The Vermejo Park Ranch is a 590,823-acre (2,391 km 2 ) [ 1 ] ranch owned by Ted Turner in northeast New Mexico that is said to be the largest privately owned, contiguous tract of land in the United States. [ 2 ]

The ranch is the biggest component of Turner's ranch empire of 2,000,000 acres (8,100 km 2 ) that as of 2007 makes him the biggest private landowner in the United States. [ 3 ]

Some sections are used for extracting propane natural gas from its immense hydrocarbon reserves. The ranch was extensively mined for coals in the early 1900s with mine names of Brilliant, Koehler and York Canyon. The ranch is said to have a 300-year reserve of bituminous coal. trillions of cubic feet of natural gas and unknown quantities of oil. [ 4 ]

A small portion is used for the Rich Cabins camp for the adjoining Philmont Scout Ranch .

It was part of the Lucien Maxwell land grant.

In the early 1900s William H. Bartlett (1850-1918) built elaborate ranch houses in the property. Bartlett bought 200,000 acres (810 km 2 ) in 1902 for $195,000 and hired close friend and Chicago architect, Joseph Lyman Silsbee to help him make improvements including three large residences (including the main Casa Grande) and a power plant. He expanded it to 300,000 acres (1,200 km 2 ).

Bartlett died at the ranch in 1918 and his sons died within two years.

A syndicate of New York, St. Louis and Chicago businessman took an option to buy the ranch and organized the Vermejo Park Club selling memberships to Tex Austin. Billy Mitchell. Amon Carter. and the Frederick Guest family. A member of the Guest family shot an elk which at the time was the ninth largest in the world; it is now on display at the Museum of Natural History in New York. However the syndicate was unable to raise the $1.8 million asking price and the original club was disbanded. [ 5 ]

The Club was disbanded in the Great Depression .

W. J. Gourley, a Fort Worth businessman, bought it in 1948 and increased the total area to 480,000 acres (1,900 km 2 ).

On December 23, 1955, the large middle guest house burned and the stables were renovated to become the ranch's main social and dining area now called "The Stables."

Pennzoil bought the property in 1973 and increased its area to 588,000 acres (2,380 km 2 ).

In 1996 Ted Turner acquired the property, sold the cattle and used their pasturage for bison. which are also called "buffalo" in North America. Ralphie V, of the Ralphie mascot of the Colorado Buffaloes. was born there.

Mystery Read-alouds

Teachers First - Thinking Teachers Teaching Thinkers Sleuthing and Snooping: Real and Imagined Mystery Read-alouds

For older/upper elementary students

It’s likely that at least some of your students read and enjoy fictional mysteries on a regular basis. Reading a complex mystery to the class (such as Ellen Raskin's book below) allows for practice with the basic elements of literature (setting, plot, characterization) as well as more advanced vocabulary specific to mysteries such as red herring, alibi, and motive. If you choose to read conventional mysteries and teach a genre study of mysteries in Reader's Workshop there are many fine additional resources from readwritethink.org here.

The theme of “mysteries” also lends itself to a broader array of topics appropriate for older students—forensics, codes and ciphers, unsolved puzzles from science and history, and strange phenomena. With that in mind, the read-aloud suggestions and websites below move beyond the mystery fiction genre and provide connections to other curricular areas. For additional recommended fiction titles:

1.Browse the Mystery category or the Suspense/Thriller category at A book and a hug
2.Check out this list at Carol Otis Hurst's site.
3.Kidsreads.com has indexed mysteries and reviews here. (See the full TeachersFirst review for more about KidsReads.)

For a list of favorite mysteries generated by kids around the world as part of an e-pal project, click on the Global Mysteries tab here .

Decorate a bulletin board with magnifying glasses and question marks, and perhaps a detective or scientist to create interest. Wear a trench coat on the first day of your mystery study, and perhaps play an audio clip of appropriate music such as the Pink Panther theme.

Create a display of books for students that relate to the theme of mysteries—works of fiction, but also books about strange phenomena like Big Foot, Atlantis, the Bermuda Triangle, Roanoke, UFOs, Stonehenge, Easter Island, etc. (The Jr. Graphic Mysteries series is a great resource, especially for readers who struggle.) Ask students what the books have in common. Define “mysteries” in broad terms.

Tell students you'll be sharing several mysteries during read-aloud time over the next few weeks. Reading a combination of fiction and non-fiction will help all students to stay engaged.

Students can complete a checklist from Scholastic to record elements or ingredients found in independent (fictional) reading books. They should be prepared to elaborate on the boxes they checked during small group discussions.

Use reading response journals for students to write their reactions to, impressions of, and theories for the non-fiction mysteries on this month's featured list.

Challenge students to create some mysteries of their own during Writer's Workshop. This printable from Scholastic or this graphic organizer from readwritethink.org will assist in planning their narrative stories. Scholastic also features Mystery Writing with popular author Joan Lowery Nixon. The site provides step-by-step directions and tips for writing, a teacher's guide, an assessment rubric, and samples of student writing.

Allow small groups of students to complete further investigations of topics of interest such as Stonehenge or the Bermuda Triangle. Brainstorm ways to share out what they learned with the rest of the class.

Have students visit some of the websites below as a free choice activity, or explore some as a whole-class activity. The links provided include the full review from Teachers First and suggestions for using the site in the classroom.

Everyday Mysteries from the Library of Congress

Arnosky, Jim. Monster Hunt: Exploring Mysterious Creatures with Jim Arnosky. ISBN: 978-142313028-4. (No lexile available; grade level equivalent: 6.4.
With the scientific discovery of new species and so many recorded eyewitness accounts, Arnosky explores the possibility of mythical beasts of the past and giant prehistoric animal species living today. He introduces cryptozoology, andinvites readers along as he wonders about giant creatures such as charcharodon, squids, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, the Lake Champlain Monster. How could they have survived? Where would they live, and what would they eat in today's world?

Raskin, Ellen. The Westing Game. ISBN: 978-0-525-47137-0 Lexile: 750
This is an excellent read-aloud for grades 5 and up. Winner of the prestigious Newbery Medal, it is a mystery, a puzzle, and an interactive game all wrapped up in one neat package. Sixteen residents of the same apartment building are all named as heirs in Sam Westing's will, although one of them is his murderer. The will itself becomes a contest to discover the murderer's identity. The prize? A cool two hundred million dollars. Discussion guide and extension activities are available at Scholastic.

Shannon, George. Stories to Solve: Folktales from Around the World. ISBN: 978-0-329-55043-1. Lexile: 790
Shannon uses brief folktales from various cultures as a vehicle for engaging readers to solve a mystery or puzzle. Solutions are provided. (He has written a number of books similar to this one if you are unable to obtain it, including More Stories to Solve, True Lies: 18 Tales for you to Judge, and More True Lies.) Those familiar with the Encyclopedia Brown stories and format will enjoy these.

Simon, Seymour. Strange Mysteries from Around the World. ISBN: 978-0688146368. Lexile: 920.
Acclaimed science writer Seymour Simon has compiled ten unsolved mysteries in this volume—questions that science can't seem to answer. With chapter titles such as The Crystal Skull, Walking on Fire, and The Mysterious Treasure of Oak Island you'll have your students on the edge of their seats waiting for details. Read in its entirety (each chapter is just a few pages long—perfect for a day's read-aloud), or select just a few of the mysteries as companion read-alouds for a mystery fiction unit.

Sobol, Donald. Two Minute Mysteries. ISBN: 978-0-590-44787-4. Lexile: 820.
Seventy-nine challenging, sometimes spine-tingling, puzzles are available in this book. Students will love trying to beat the clock and work out the details in under two minutes. Use as a filler when making transitions in the classroom, as a Morning Meeting activity, or a daily challenge at the start of Reader's Workshop during your mystery unit.

Van Allsburg, The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. ISBN: 0-395-35393-9 Lexile: 760
First published in 1984, the black-and-white illustrations in the book (accompanied by just a caption), beg the reader to create “the whole story.” Follow up with the book below. Have students write their comments and reactions to the work of the published authors as they compare it to their own work.

Van Allsburg, The Chronicles of Harris Burdick. ISBN: 978-0-547-54810-4 (No lexile available; grade level equivalent: 5.4)
Inspired by the illustrations in the original, this new volume is a collection of stories by some of today's most notable and popular children's and young adult authors including Sherman Alexie, M.T. Anderson, Kate DiCamillo, Lois Lowry, Louis Sachar, Walter Dean Myers, and Jon Scieszka. Use as a follow-up to student pieces created after reading the first book. Compare student texts with those written by the authors in the book.

Walker, Sally. Secrets of a Civil War Submarine: Solving the Mysteries of the H.L. Hunley. ISBN: 978-1-57505-830-6 Lexile: 1060.
This book tells the tale of the Civil War's biggest unsolved mystery—the disappearance of the first submarine to sink a ship during battle. The Confederate sub sank the Union's U.S.S. Housatonic, but it disappeared after, along with its crew. Walker's book gives background about the building of the Hunley, some of its missions, and its ultimate recovery and restoration, one hundred thirty years after its disappearance. Keep this available as a choice in your classroom library for students with a fascination for history, or use parts of it as a companion read-aloud during a study of the fiction mystery genre.

Yolen, Jane. The Wolf Girls: an Unsolved Mystery from History. ISBN: 0-689-81080-6. (No lexile available; grade level equivalent: 5.1)
This series was co-authored with Jane Yolen's daughter, who was a private detective for a time. Using a young girl who wants to be a detective as a narrator, the facts of each story from history are revealed slowly. This first book addresses the true story of two young girls at an orphanage in India in the 1920’s, who were supposedly raised by wolves before their time at the orphanage. Questions surround the credibility of the account of the girls’ arrival from the clergyman who ran the financially struggling institution.

Yolen, Jane. The Mary Celeste: an Unsolved Mystery from History. ISBN: 0-613-46226-2. Lexile: 630
The second book in the series relates the facts of probably the most famous of maritime mysteries. In 1872, the Mary Celeste, an American merchant ship, was found adrift in fine weather, with no one aboard, plenty of supplies, and a lifeboat missing. Not a single passenger or crew member was ever seen or heard from again.

Small “notebook pages” from the narrator highlighting clues from the facts, and “sticky note” replicas citing important vocabulary specific to the case add interest to the book. Both books end with the question: “So what really happened?” Popular and prevailing scenarios are then given as possible explanations, but the reader is reminded that no one knows for sure.

The Mystery Box by Brad Meltzer

The Mystery Box

There's nothing more mysterious than a locked box. Whether it's a literal strongbox, an empty coffin, the inner workings of a scientist's mind, or an underground prison cell, there are those who will use any means necessary to unlock the secrets of. THE MYSTERY BOX.

With this anthology, bestselling author Brad Meltzer introduces twenty-one original stories from today's most prominent mystery writers. In Laura Lippman's "Waco 1982," a young reporter stuck with a seemingly mundane assignment on lost-and-found boxes unwittingly discovers a dark crime. In Joseph Finder's "Heirloom," a scheming neighbor frightens the new couple on the block with an unnerving tale of buried treasure. In R.L. Stine's "High Stakes," a man on his honeymoon gets drawn into a bizarre bet involving a coffin--a bet he may pay for with his life.

From the foothills of Mount Fuji to Georgia's Okefenokee Swamp, from a physics laboratory in wartime Leipzig to an unusual fitness club in Boca Raton, these sometimes terrifying, sometimes funny, and always suspenseful tales will keep you riveted to the page.

Reviews ctpress_1

Terror and mystery. The title words reveal the grotesque imaginations of a genius writer. A lot of the tales have a storyteller who are on the brink of insanity, if he has not altogether lost it. A murderer haunted by the heartbeat of his victim. Another driven to madness by a black cat. One in a dungeon facing severe torture that but from what source. a haunted house in "Usher", a ship heading for a horrible sci-fi-like fate - and even a rather humorous tale with the title "Words with a Mummy". This selection has 13 of his best known tales. The variety is refreshing. Pit and the Pendulum - The House of Usher - A Tell-Tale Heart, The Black Cat are among them. Missing are his three detective stories (fx the famous The Murders in the Rue Morgue) - I will read them later in a separate collection. OK, it's not my favorite genre - (and definitely not my favorite cover) but Poe has an ability to describe the sense of madness and horror when people are facing death or the fate of their foul deeds. It's just brilliant writing. And also seemingly normal incidents are suddenly turned upside down with fantasy and the grotesque. This is a good selection that will give you a good idea whether to pursue more Poe or not. But do give him a chance.

redheadperson22 - Warning! This review may contain spoilers. There's this 11 year-old boy named Edmund. He has a photographic memory and he's very good at drawing. One day, Edmund is out with his dad, when they hear something in an ally. Edmund's dad goes to check it out while Edmund hides under a bench. A man runs out of the ally, and soon Edmund's dad comes out too. They go to the police station and Edmund's dad tells them that two men were fighting in the ally and he tried to break it up. Eventually the police department hires Edmund to help them with a case. (Sorry for such a poor description, I'm working off my memory). What I thought of it: My favorite character was Eddie's friend Jonah. Their friendship was probably the most interesting thing in the book for me. Eddie was an ok main character. Though one thing about him kind of bothered me. Eddie was black, and the author made way too big a deal of that. I mean it was fine when they were mentioning it casually and in the dialog but was it really necessary to say that his last name came from when his ancestors were owned by white people back in the slave days I mean I'm black, and I have no idea were my last name came from. It kind of made sense because Eddie's parents seemed like they liked to research their family history and stuff, but it still seemed a but unnatural. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong about making remarks about him being black. But at some points, the way it was presented it seemed unnatural and forced. Also, I don't get why it was necessary for him to always be ogling over Jenny. She said like 4 lines in the entire book (which made sense I guess since she's supposed to be quiet), and was literally just someone for Eddie to swoon over. She was a completely pointless character. But maybe they'll give her a real purpose in the sequel. The writing was fine, really just your typical middle-grade-novel-with-a-male-protagonist writing. The ending was ok. The plot was ok, but very cliché. But the entire book was pretty cliché Overall, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't that great. I don't plan on reading the sequel.

May 5, 2014
A normal day turns into a life-changer for African-American New York City sixth-grader Eddie Red when he learns that his father's job loss means he can no longer attend private school. After Eddie witnesses a scuffle in an alley, the police, led by surly Detective Bovano, are impressed when Eddie uses his photographic memory to sketch the perpetrator perfectly. Promising wages and to fund Eddie's schooling, the police hires the 11-year-old to visit museums and identify disguised members of the Picasso Gang, art thieves wreaking havoc on Museum Mile. Since Detective Bovano won't release specific information on the long-open case or give him a weapon, Eddie taps the expertise of his highly intelligent, obsessive-compulsive best friend Jonah, who schemes alongside him. In Wells's lighthearted, voice-driven debut novel, first in a planned series, Eddie never truly seems in danger, but his audacity and persistence, a clever mystery that unfolds atmospherically, and Calo's sly pencil portraits result in a fun sleuthing story. Ages 9–12. Agent: Kristin Nelson, Nelson Literary.
