The following is a forwarded message from County Commissioner Alicia Edwards:

Good evening everyone,
As you have contacted me in the past regarding your concerns about the Holloman AFB issue, I wanted to be proactive and contact you regarding the latest information about a Thursday meeting. At today's commission work session, we made it clear that the commission would not be hosting a meeting that the public was not invited to.

Silver City Mayor Ken Ladner would like to invite your input, ideas and inspirations toward making our town even better.

New Mexico State University's Grant County Cooperative Extension Office will offer a free Manage Your Chronic Disease /Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (MyCD/CDSMP) beginning early Mid-March. The MyCD/CDSMP is an interactive group workshop for adults of all ages living with one or more ongoing health conditions like diabetes, arthritis, pain, cancer, high cholesterol, depression, asthma, heart disease, and high blood pressure. The MyCD/CDSMP focuses on building skills for improving pain management, nutrition, exercise, medication use, emotions, and communicating with doctors.

The program on "Intro to the Film Industry" scheduled for this Wednesday evening has been cancelled due to lack of enrollment.
