Here’s a look at today’s news:

The New Mexico Historic Preservation Division for “Community Preservation Planning” presented an award to the Village of Santa Clara for its work in preserving historic resources. The Village was recognized for successfully securing funds through New Mexico MainStreet in addition to establishing a preservation commission, passing preservation ordinances, and coordinating volunteers to provide assistance at historic Fort Bayard.

The Deming School Board has appointed Patricia “Tris” McSherry, to the  vacant District 1 seat. Ms. McSherry is a licenced pharmacist who graduated from Deming High School and the University of New Mexico. She is filling the position vacated the resignation of Ron Wolfe in April and in addition, she will serve the remainder of the District 1 term, through December 2021.

The New Mexico Department of Veterans Services (DVS) has hired Chris Teran as its Veterans Service Officer for the agency’s Santa Clara/Grant County field office. Mr. Teran’s primary responsibility will be assisting veterans, their eligible dependents, or widows, with filing for VA or state veterans’ benefits. He will also continue doing outreach to veterans in Deming, Lordsburg, Quemado, and Reserve. Born and raised in Bayard, Mr. Teran comes to DVS from working as a Code Enforcement Officer for the town of Hurley. Prior to this, he worked at the Yucca Lodge Substance Abuse Program at Ft. Bayard Medical Center. Mr. Teran served from 2001-2008 as a U.S. Army Combat Medic and in 2005, he was sent to New Orleans as part of the Army’s disaster relief effort in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Congratulations, Chris Teran on your new job with the Department of Veteran’s Services!

Regarding the Buzzard Fire located 10 miles northeast of Reserve in the Gila National Forest, The Southwest Area Incident Management Team 4 used a combination of hand crews, firing operations and aircraft dropping water to provide protection for the Eagle Peak Lookout.  The weather brought a higher relative humidity over the fire yesterday, helping fire suppression efforts by reducing the fire intensity. Rehabilitation efforts, such as chipping cut branches, are proving successful on the northern side of fire.  A Burned Area Emergency Response Team has arrived to assess fire-related impacts to the landscape and formulate a plan to reduce the effects of post-fire flooding in the area. As of the report this afternoon the fire has burned 34,709 acres and containment has reached 49%.

In addition, the Meadow Fire that started yesterday, northwest of Signal Peak Lookout, is encompassing 100 to 150 acres with 0% containment as of this afternoon. Initial attack crews are responding for full suppression strategy. Smoke will be visible in Pinos Altos and surrounding areas.
