Grant County Commissioners hear quarterly and annual reports; approve long agenda of items 022615

By Mary Alice Murphy

The first person to approach the public speaker's podium at the Grant County Commission regular meeting on Thursday, Feb. 26, was Armando Amador asking about whether the agenda had an item about the architect for projects at the Bataan Veteran's Memorial.

If you're driving up Highway 180 from Deming to Silver City, you cannot help but notice the new "Grant County 4-H Clubs Welcome You" sign just inside the Grant County line.

The 4-H council made it a priority last spring and over the summer, Sam Lowry, Ag/4-H agent; and Silver High FFA instructor and past Grant County 4-Her, Shane Wetzel, designed the 4 x 4 Steel Sign. The plasma cam in the Silver High School Ag shop cut it out.

Brian Cunningham, Gila Regional Medical Center Chief Executive Officer, led off the reports.
