Silver City, NM, Oct. 8, 2020 — Warm temperatures and limited precipitation are increasing fire danger on the Gila National Forest.

A fire danger rating of HIGH is defined as "all fine dead fuels ignite readily, and fires start easily from most causes." Unattended brush and camp fires are likely to escape. Fires spread rapidly, and short-distance spotting is common. Fires may become serious and their control difficult unless they are attacked successfully while small. Outdoor burning should be restricted.

The Republican Party of Grant County (RPGC) filed an ethics complaint last month with the New Mexico Secretary of State (SOS), alleging election laws were violated in the seating of one of three of the Bureau of Elections Director's family members on the Absentee Ballot Board.

They also contend in the Sept. 16 filing that the clerk's office failed to contact former election judges to serve on this board during the 2020 primary, and instead placed Eric Gomez, the son of Director of Elections Elizabeth Trujillo, Mariyah Gomez, her daughter, and Catherine Gomez, her mother-in-law, in those positions for that election. This board will also have the ultimate decision on accepting ballots in the Nov. 3 election.
