Congratulations to Hidalgo Medical Services employee Frances Groves who was selected as the June “Employee of the Month”. Frances was selected for her hard work and dedication to her patients and coworkers and for wearing many “hats” from her everyday MA tasks to managing VFC accounts at the school clinics to managing lab and medical supplies. She was also recognized for embodying the “Culture” of HMS by serving the organization through teaching new staff, caring for the community and for doing all of it with an excellent attitude and skill set.  

Grant County 4-H, DWI Prevention, Healthy Kids Healthy Communities and other Grant County organizations have come together to present “Summer Safety and Prevention Day” tomorrow, June 26th. They will be providing information on how to stand firm against negative peer pressure, five conversation starters for parents to talk to their kids about drugs and alcohol, safety tips for youth babysitting younger siblings, an infused water demonstration and some fun activities. Prevention day will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the G.W. Stout Elementary School Cafeteria.

Luna County is currently working on three recreational projects including: a Skate Park, Basketball and Pickleball Courts and Batting Cages, which will all be located next to the Starmax Theatre. Dirt work is currently being completed and compacted in preparation for concrete for the skate park and for the footings and underground infrastructure for the batting cages. Crews have also begun pouring concrete slabs for the Basketball and Pickleball courts and will apply the coating in the next 3 to 4 weeks and once that is complete, they will begin finishing the goals and netting. 

The City of Deming would like to thank the Luna County 4-H Club for helping clean up the city this past weekend. The group removed seven loads of weeds and trash from Trees Lake and its surrounding areas. Their dedication to the community is truly appreciated.

The Lordsburg Border Patrol Explorer Post began their Explorer Program this past week. Students participated in the Modern Run by loading their rucksacks with 30 pounds of canned food to be donated to the Lordsburg Food Bank, learned how to treat trauma related injuries under stress, worked on their Jiu-Jitsu skills and practiced shooting a caliber pistol to prepare them for future participation in national competitions with other Law Enforcement Exploring posts. The program helps offer young adults a personal awareness of the criminal justice system through training, practical experiences, competition and other activities.
