Silver City, NM, February 12, 2018: PFLAG Silver City is inviting the public to nominate individuals for the first annual Ally Award. This award will recognize a person who has worked to make Grant County a more welcoming and just place for LGBTQ people. The sexual orientation and gender identity of nominees is immaterial; what matters is their words and deeds and how they have made a positive difference.

The Gila Chapter of Back Country Horsemen is holding two competitive trail rides at the NAN Ranch the weekend of April 20-22. Now is the time to start conditioning your horse to complete the two day A Ride or the one day B Ride.

Competitive trail riding is a timed event over beautiful trails with the challenge of natural obstacles such as water crossings, steep uphills, fallen logs, and unexpected wildlife. The object is to complete the trail within a minimum and maximum time frame with your horse or mule in excellent condition. It is not a race. The event will be judged by Jerry Weil, Veterinarian Judge, and Jerry Simms, Horsemanship Judge.
