Over the past year, the Gila National Forest Supervisor Camille Howes hosted six “Coffee with Camille” events in Silver City, Glenwood, Truth or Consequences, Reserve, and Quemado. These 2-hour open public forums have allowed members of the Gila communities to meet with Supervisor Howes to discuss issues of concern. During the past events, a broad range of issues have been discussed including; watersheds, and their ability to deliver high-quality water for public use, the need for well-managed rangelands that support livestock grazing, illegal firewood harvesting, unattended campfires and other public activities on the forest. To learn more about when the next “Coffee with Camille” will take place, visit the website.

Congratulations to Deming High School students Aiden Villescas, Abel Baca and Sarah Hernandez who recently won first place at the 2023 New Mexico Boosting Engineering, Science and Technology Robotics Competition that took place last week. This year teams had to build a mock-surgery robot and Deming High School won first place in the “game winners” category for their robot which simulated a medical tool to plug and unplug human arteries. The DHS team will now prepare for the 2024 Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology Competition Championship that will take place in April.
