The Silver/Cliff school district met May 16, 2013, at the district office on Swan Street. All board members were present. In the 5 p.m. workshop meeting, Superintendent Lon Streib gave background information on the topics that would be brought up again at the more public session beginning at 6 p.m.
The recent land trade, which gave a small parcel to the school near the tennis courts, required some changes on the part of both the city and the district within a year. The city is to remove a small building and the school district is to get the track redone and some paving, curbing and gravel work.

Glenwood, NM; May 17, 2013— Work is going full steam ahead for re-opening an additional portion of the popular Catwalk National Recreation Trail located on the Glenwood Ranger District, Gila National Forest. Forest employees, many of them firefighting personnel, are working to replace an additional ¼ mile of the trail up to the octagon (the 8-sided view area) in hopes of having work completed by Memorial Day weekend. “Although we are working towards this date, we may face some challenges with fire season upon us,” says Pat Morrison, Glenwood District Ranger. No fees are currently being charged at the Catwalk. Once the new toilet is installed, the $3.00 per vehicle fee may be reinstated.
“The Forest Service is supportive of the Catwalk restoration recognizing its popularity among local citizens and tourists from throughout the country and internationally; the local economies of the Glenwood area and Catron County are also of high value to us,” adds Ranger Morrison.

Superintendent Steve Riley announced today that the Gila Cliff Dwellings will be closed from June 3 through 7, 2013 for hazard rock removal from the cliff face directly above the dwellings. Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument will offer twice-daily, ranger-guided tours of the TJ Site while the cliff dwellings are closed. The National Park Service apologizes for any inconvenience that this work may cause visitors who come specifically to visit the cliff dwellings, but the safety of our visitors and staff requires that this work be accomplished before summer rains begin later in July.Read more...
