Local News Releases

These releases come from other sources than the Grant County Beat. This category will include events in and news releases from Grant, Catron, Hidalgo and Luna counties.

This discussion will be moderated by Cindy Provencio, Miller Library Program Manager of Operations and Special Events, whose Masters thesis is titled "Racial Segregation and Discrimination in Grant Co NM: A comprehensive examination through the lens of intersectional assemblage theory." Panelists will include local Hispanics who encountered racial discrimination and segregation. Much of the institutional segregation in schools and housing in Grant County officially ended over the course of the 1950s, but the effects have lasted. This conversation will be an opportunity to learn, share, and reflect on how far the community has come and what we can all do moving forward to heal and connect with each other.

Silver City, NM (September 13, 2017) – As of September 29, the HMS Mimbres Valley Clinic will be open every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 7:00am to 6:00pm (closed between 12:00noon and 1:00pm).

This change reflects an increase in open hours for the community that HMS serves. Please call (575) 536- 3990 today to learn more about the new clinic hours or to schedule your family’s appointment at the HMS Mimbres Valley Clinic.

Why should people attend Chamber of Commerce events?

If you are business person, these events are a good networking opportunity. Bring your business cards, wear a shirt with your company logo on it, or maybe wear a name badge that has the company name and your name on it. You see, the whole idea is to meet more people, tell them what you do… and possibly create a new customer base from these events. If you are simply a member of the community, these events are a great way to learn about the services of the new business or meet the staff of the business. Sometimes they are snacks and giveaway prizes. But the main reason it is good to attend is to learn how this new business can be useful to meeting your needs.

Hanover: The New Mexico Department of Transportation District One office (NMDOT) has posted an alert for Friday September 15, 2017:

Sept. 17 at 10 am, 3845 North Swan Street – "Keeping Your Head above Water When the World is Going Crazy" People often have difficulty taking care of themselves because they are so aware of events in the world, and they desire to help, that they neglect their own well-being. Reverend Carole Czujko will talk about the balance of being able to help others more by keeping ourselves healthy. Reverend Czujko is a semi-retired Unitarian Universalist minister who has served congregations in California and New Mexico. Although this is not a Family Program Sunday, there will be childcare available for parents who would like to attend. There will be coffee and conversation after the service, and visitors are welcome.
