Notes are Courtesy of Cordelia Rose

Tom Bird, NOAA meteorologist based in El Paso gave a presentation on historic and current weather trends for the state of New Mexico with a focus on our area here in the Gila as it pertains to forest fires.

He spoke of the El Nino effect on our current weather cycle and that the peak of our fire season (dry season) will be June 23 with the end of fire season coming around July 7. He stated that we are still in a typical drought cycle with high potential for lightning strikes this summer. 2016 featured a "bumper crop" of "carry over fine fuels." NOAA is predicting that our Monsoon Season will be dryer than normal with temperatures above average. The early melting of our snow pack in the Gila may bring on the Monsoons a bit earlier this year.

Final update meeting on Hudson Street Bridge held Wednesday evening 051816

By Mary Alice Murphy

Brian Torres, New Mexico Department of Transportation project manager, gave the final update about the New Mexico-90/Hudson Bridge update Wednesday evening.

A few workers continue to finish up final touches.

Torres said about 85 percent to 90 percent of the punch list is done. "The contractor (Interstate Highway Construction) has been grading down below. There is still a big pile of dirt."

Claire Catlett of Stream Dynamics said Van Clothier, Stream Dynamics owner, had worked on the project to restore the trailhead on Monday. She reported that IHC was moving dirt, so the sub-contractor (Stream Dynamics) would probably start work again next Monday. She would coordinate to make sure that was feasible.-- Continue reading

Silver School Board continues to work on budget 051716

By Margaret Hopper

Silver District school board members were all in attendance on Monday at 6:06 p.m. to take care of the May 17 agenda, which lasted about two hours before going into executive session. The agenda was stamped “revised”, and there were plenty of budget handouts, one written April 21, the other May 12, for community people to take home and compare, too. Board members present were Frances Vasquez, Mike McMillan, Chris Arvidson, Tony Egan, and Arnold Torres, board president.

Members heard four beginning program presentations. Santiago Arredondo of the auto shop told directors about the new auto paint booth needing to be set up for student use in their training. The foundation should be poured in June, and assembly after that. He said a few years back, he and others looked at the local businesses and figured some might close down, considering the ages of the staff. There is now a shortage of blue-collar workers; those ready for such positions have a bright future.-- Continue reading
