The New Mexico Department of Transportation teamed up with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish to educate the public regarding the rules and regulations of OHV (off-highway vehicles) riding on New Mexico roadways. According to their news release; “The New Mexico Legislature amended Section 66-3-1011 NMSA 1978, to allow a county or municipality, by ordinance or resolution, to authorize operation of OHVs on paved streets or highways owned and controlled by the county or municipality but the use of these vehicles on state roadways is banned and riders may be cited.” Furthermore, it is the responsibility of any OHV operator to know the state and local laws and rules before riding.

The Silver City Gospel Mission gave out 30 Thanksgiving gift baskets to local families in need. According to the Gospel Mission Manager, Randy Salars, the Mission received 37 turkeys, 8 hams, and numerous cans of cranberry sauce and other dinner ingredients. Along with another few hundred dollars spent at the stores, volunteers were able to put the boxes together with a full assortment of ingredients. Each basket included a turkey or ham and all the trimmings to make a made-from-scratch Thanksgiving dinner. In addition, other foods like cereal and canned goods were included so that families would have food during the holiday break.” The Gospel Mission is thankful for the donations contributed from the community and any remaining or new donations will be used for Christmas.
