Corriendo,” he said. Running.

Two and a half years ago, when most 17-year-olds in the United States were getting ready for the prom or searching for their first summer job, Honorio was trekking the Arizona desert alone, in search of a better life.

Martin deer.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — Younger hunters in the area did not have quite as much success on the Nov. 9-10 Youth Hunting Weekend as they had in the past two Novembers, but the 109 deer they had weighed at seven reporting stations in Addison County was very respectable compared to results over the past five years.
