Wilderness Ranger District needs your help with gates

Mimbres, NM, January 4, 2017—For Immediate Release. The Wilderness Ranger District needs your help! The Forest Service horses and mules are pastured between mile markers 18-22 and Lake Roberts on the north side of Highway 35.

There are several gates to this pasture that have been left open in the past month, therefore allowing horses and mules to wander onto the highway. This area is open to the public. It is vitally important, to both the health and safety of the public and the health and safety of the livestock, that all gates are closed when you exit the pasture. All gates are identified with signs referring to the livestock in the pasture.-- Continue reading

Addition: Little Lambs daycare is on the verge of shutting down

A plea from the director and staff of Little Lambs Day Care to help find a new location

Editor's Note: Be aware that a small group of church and community members is actively seeking a solution. No one wants the children to lose the care nor the staff to lose their jobs. The church knows that Little Lambs is a successful program, but may be outgrowing the space available.

Little Lambs daycare restarted in 2008 under the sponsorship of First United Methodist Church of Silver City. Little Lambs is currently one of few daycares that are located in the Grant County area. We are a three-STAR FOCUS program, and at the beginning of the New Year we will be verified to reach a goal of becoming a four STAR. A four-star program is defined by high standards by the State of New Mexico Children Youth and Families Department (CYFD) in many areas: curriculum planning, health and safety practices, continuous improvement, and early childhood education. As of now we provide services for 75 children and families. We employ 17 teachers/employees under the First United Methodist Church 501(c)3 designation.
