Photos by Mary Alice Murphy and ErnestO Stolpe

 

For the sixth year, volunteers from Comcast helped Mimbres Region Arts Council install a mural. This one on a retaining wall in the Big Ditch requires a closer look from the person walking by. The details include tiles with the names of the buildings along what was once Silver City's Main Street until it was washed out in the late 1890s and early 1900s. 

Donny Hall, Comcast technical supervisor, who has worked for the company for 40 years, first in Las Cruces and now in Silver ity, said: "I think it's awesome that Mimbres Region Arts Council takes a blank wall and decorates it for the community to enjoy." Read more...

Silver School Board disapproves four-day schedule 3-2

By Margaret Hopper

The Silver School Board began its April 25, 2017 session at 6:06 p.m., allowing a brief break from the 5:00 p.m. work session on the bond issues, which must be addressed shortly. All board members were present; Justin Wecks, Patrick Cohn, Ashley Montenegro, Frances Vasquez and president Mike McMillan. The meeting was held in the Little Theater, as a number of weighty items were on the agenda. A large crowd waited nearly four hours for the vote on the 4-day school year.

Six information presenters were on the agenda, starting with Representative Rebecca Dow, district 38. She came on electronically, speaking about education bills in the recent legislative session in Santa Fe. During the questioning period, Vasquez voiced teacher evaluation concerns. Dow outlined some considerations and added that a veto override of the governor’s decisions was possible until 2018. Montenegro’s question was on the revenue enhancement veto; Dow spoke of the $20 million short and cuts; she questioned any change, “unless all revenue proposals are wrong.” Read more...
