On Saturday May 14, 50 nonprofit organizations gathered at 7th and Bullard in Silver City and at Leyendecker Plaza in Deming. They informed and engaged active citizenry about their organizations. The social issues and unmet needs, that these nonprofits are working every day to address, were the reasons individuals gave grandly. Apparently the public was so impressed they generously gave to the effort a total of $100,000, according to Barrett Brewer, Chair of the Grant County Community Foundation and Peggy Hutchinson, Treasurer of the Foundation. For the third year in a row, The Grant County Community Foundation was the sponsoring organization for the entire event, which benefits the member organizations of The Southwest New Mexico Nonprofit Coalition.-- Continue reading

QUEMADO, NM; May 25, 2016 – For Immediate Release – The Spur Fire on the Quemado Ranger District, six miles northeast of Luna, is reported at 350 acres with around 80 personnel on the incident. The lightning-caused fire is being managed under a confine/contain strategy within a defined area north of Reserve.
The increase in acreage resulted from the actions fire crews took Tuesday night to ignite east of the fire along Road 49 when the weather was cooler and calmer. These measures were taken to prevent fire from spreading outside the established management area given the forecast for increased southwest winds. On Wednesday, crews worked to reinforce the northern boundary of the management area west to the 2006 Wilson Fire scar, continued to patrol firelines and examined the trail system surrounding the fire. Fire activity consisted of flame lengths from 12-18 inches burning in ponderosa pine, grass and forest litter.-- Continue reading
