The official unemployment rate in Grant County stayed about the same in July, according to the state Department of Workforce Solutions.
There were 907 people (out of a work force of 11,592) actively looking for jobs. That amounted to a rate of 7.8 percent, the same as in July 2013. In June this year, 905 of 11,703 workers (7.7 percent) were seeking employment.
After falling below 6 percent in May, the first time in years it had been that low, the rate has been slowly increasing. The county was 11th in the state in joblessness last month, worse than its 13th-place ranking in May. Luna County continues to top the list, reaching 15 percent unemployment in July.

A Silver City group seeking to expand area hiking trails has applied to the National Park Service for continued funding.
A grant from the federal agency's Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance program financed the Gila Conservation Education Center RTCA Committee's pursuit of several projects during the past year. A newly formed group, the Silver City RTCA Coalition, last week sent a letter to the NPS requesting a grant for next year.
Accomplishments in 2014 have included the designation of Silver City as a "gateway community" for the Continental Divide Trail, and progress on a Silver City Master Greenways Plan featuring trails and parks. More than 75 area residents have served on subcommittees working on the projects.
