U.S. Marine veteran helping veterans with cross-country bicycle ride

U.S. Marine veteran helping veterans with cross-country bicycle ride

By Mary Alice Murphy

You are seeing lots of bicyclists in Silver City this weekend. Most are preparing for the Tour of the Gila next week.

However, one particular lone rider, Tom Wiseman, is a U.S. Marine veteran making a cross-country ride from Florida to California.

When asked why, he replied that his entire life has been devoted to veterans. He served eight years as a county veterans service officer in Defiance, Ohio, his hometown.

His purpose is to raise money to buy a van for veterans in VFW Post 4419 in Clay County, WV. The Post's van, lost in flooding in 2016, was used to take veterans to medical care, including mental health counseling and for the Post's honor guard to take part in funeral details.-- Continue reading

By Margaret Hopper

Aldo Leopold Charter School (ALCS) Governing Council was larger than usual with two new members Thursday evening. Present were Christa Osborn, A. J. Sandoval, Mary Gruszka, Shauna McCosh, Ken Stone, Dale Lane and David Peck, Chairman. Martin Maxwell was not present. Peck explained later that the new ones were being supported by those who are outgoing soon, but still attending. There is room for them all, as the Council could have more members than it presently does, he said.

The paperwork was finished as a 501 (c) 3 with mission and purpose, goal and strategy spelled out. After the presentation, board members were lavish in their praise for those who created the Foundation and saw it through to the finish.-- Continue reading
