Toward the beginning of the Silver City-Grant County Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon on Nov. 2, 2017, Gila Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees member Tony Trujillo introduced GRMC Chief Executive Officer Taffy Arias.

"This is a time in history for Gila Regional," Arias said. "We are at the beginning of something bigger than any of us." She introduced Shelly Carter, the Cancer Center Clinical Manager.

Arias also introduced the GRMC Interim Chief Financial Officer, JoBeth Vance, who has helped her with the transition of the Cancer Center to the University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center as the provider of cancer care services.

On November 7, 2017, at about 7 p.m., a Silver City Police Officer was able to locate a mountain lion east of Silver Street and north of 19th Street in the creek area and shot it. The officers on scene believe they saw one more run off towards the north. Officers will continue to patrol the area to locate the other one.

Over the past several weeks citizens have been reporting the sighting of a mountain lion, also known as a cougar, in the northern part of Silver City. Specifically, from Little Walnut east to Highway 15 (Pinos Altos Rd) and from 19th Street north to the city limits. There have been complaints indicating the mountain lion has been seen east of the N. Silver Street in the creek area.

The mountain lion appears to be a lone adult male. Mountain lions are solitary animals. They are very territorial and actively avoid other cats except during courtship. Their ranges can vary in size from 10 square miles to around 370 square miles; females tend to have smaller ranges than males.
