A candidate forum, hosted by the Silver City Daily Press, took place on Tuesday, Feb. 20, to hear from the two candidates for Silver City Town Council District 2-incumbent Lynda Aiman-Smith and her challenger, Patricia "Elline" Kingsley.
Daily Press Publisher Nick Seibel served as moderator and reporter Ben Fisher provided questions from the Press, while Seibel read those from the audience.
Kevin Tillman, chief ranger of Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area in Montana and Wyoming, has been named superintendent of Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument in southern New Mexico. Tillman, a 27-year veteran of the National Park Service (NPS), served as acting superintendent at Gila Cliff Dwellings from February to June of this year. He will assume his new post the week of Nov. 12.
"Kevin's years of experience in a variety of Park Service locations across the country will serve him well in managing one of America's very first national monuments," said Kate Hammond, acting director of the NPS's Intermountain Region, which includes New Mexico. "We value Kevin's management insight as he supports the Gila Cliff Dwellings staff and partners in caring for the monument and its archeological wonders of the Mogollon culture."

Responding to a welfare check, Silver City Police officers arrived at 1418 Pine Street Tuesday, Feb. 20, just before 4 p.m. to find Joshua Padilla, 25, of Silver City, walking to the front door of the residence. An SCPD report narrative stated that when Padilla was asked what he was doing, he answered just "chillin.'" When officers entered the residence they had contact at the front door with an unidentified female, and coming out of a back bedroom, an adult male. The report stated the adult male (the victim) had an extremely swollen nose, bloody and swollen lips, and that his hands and shirt were "full of blood." There was also a large amount of blood on the living room floor observed by the officers.
