16 NEWFACES WRITTEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY JOE BURGESS VICTOR NWACHUKU, MD and YVETTE ROMERO, RN. Horizon Home Health helps rural and bed-ridden people requiring some level of medical attention, but not hospitalization.

Yvette, a Silver City native, earned her degree as an RN from WNMU Nursing School and has home health experience. She is a partner and also serves as administrator. Victor Nwachuku, MD and senior partner is originally from Nigeria, graduated from Cal State University and Jefferson Medical School in Philadelphia.

We are a community credit union and are striving to develop a stronger community appeal. Deborah has three step-daughters and lives in Deming with her husband and two dogs. She is a member of the New Mexico Bar as well as the District of Columbia Bar. You can contact Chino Federal Credit Union at KATHLEEN INIGUEZ.

17 CRAIG MARTIN. Our most popular product is still our high quality ice cream, says Schwan s driver Craig Martin. Craig delivers to Hurley, Santa Clara, parts of Arenas Valley, Tyrone, White Signal and points west. Craig attended Fresno State and worked in the restaurant business for 15 years. While we were still in California, I found an opening with Schwan s and was able to transfer to Silver City to be closer to my in-laws.

18 Investing Courtesy of James Edd Hughs, left; and Kevin Thompson, right; at Edward Jones KEY STEPS TO CREATING YOUR FINANCIAL STRATEGY It's important to have a road map to help reach your goals. Although there are many routes available, the key is having a set of guideposts to help you stay on track. These guideposts include: Where am I today? Silver City Properties #1 Listing + Selling Office in Grant County 2006 & E. 11th Street Toll-free (866) Office (575) Mimbres Branch Office Toll-free (877) Office (575) Patrick Conlin, CRS Broker/Owner Dawn Holladay Rodger Koest Tracy Bauer Lisa Parker Paula Bradfield Robin L. Thomas Representing Dos Griegos Subdivision Branding Iron Properties 16 SILVER CITYLIFE Before you can set realistic goals, you need to determine your current financial situation. When you share the information listed below, in confidence with your financial advisor, it will help him or her gain a better understanding of your current financial situation. Individual salary and that of a spouse, if applicable Company retirement-plan savings 401(k), 403(b), 457(b) Investments held at banks or other firms Cash savings Mortgage, if applicable Other loans car, higher education, home equity Monthly bills Last year s tax return Employer-plan statements Brokerage statements

19 Buy diversified, quality investments and hold them for the long term. Where would I like to be? After determining where you are today, work with your financial advisor to set specific goals that can be related to: Having appropriate insurance coverage Saving for retirement Living a comfortable retirement Funding your child s education Helping support other family members Funding a vacation or second home Can I Get There? Based on your current situation, future income requirements and risk tolerance, your financial advisor can help you create and implement a strategy. He or she also can help you decide how much to save monthly or annually to work toward your goals. 1 How Do I Get There? Investment philosophy centers on buying diversified, 2 quality investments and holding them for the long term. Your financial advisor can introduce you to a variety of asset allocation models. Then you can select the right mix of investments in each category. How Can I Stay on Track? Meet with your financial advisor at least annually to help ensure your strategy stays on track. If any of your goals or circumstances have changed, you can make any appropriate updates to your portfolio. 1. A systematic investment plan does not guarantee a profit, nor does it protect against a loss in a declining market. Such a plan involves continuous investment in securities regardless of fluctuating price levels of the securities. You should consider your financial ability to continue purchases through periods of low price levels. 2. Diversification does not guarantee a profit, nor does it protect against a loss Edward Jones does not provide tax or legal advice. You should review your situation with your tax or legal professional if this advice is needed. Lynne Schultz Ph.

28 Metcalf sculptures grace Albuquerque s skyline WRITTEN BY PAT YOUNG JENNIFER GAGE FAITH VIAMANTI Before Silver City sculptor Michael Metcalf s 30-ft-tall twin sculptures entitled The Positive Energy of New Mexico graced the Albuquerque skyline, they journeyed by truck from Metcalf s studio to the Duke City last September. A dedication ceremony took place in December. Now returned to his position as professor of sculpture at Western New Mexico University, Metcalf reminisced on the enormous project. I was pleased with the way the sculpture turned out, but I was glad to return to the classroom and a less harried way of life, he said. With a hired crane, Metcalf and a volunteer crew that included his wife, interior designer Christine Rickman, placed the bases onto prepared concrete pads at I-40 and Louisiana Avenue. Four thousand pound boulders were lowered onto the bases and three bronze spires set in place on each sculpture. Enormous nuts and bolts secured components. Metcalf and volunteers then inserted splines into the spires. He said at one point high winds caused them to lash free-standing scaffolding to the more stable spires in order to continue. Before the sculptures left Silver City, there were sanding and patina parties at Metcalf s studio. Many volunteers helped him prepare the 8,000- pound sculptures. People here are great, Metcalf said. Dedication plaques on each sculpture also recognize WNMU, Phelps Dodge and Sandia National Laboratories for their assistance. It s a real rush to look over when I m exiting the Interstate in Albuquerque, Metcalf said, and know I created and fabricated these sculptures.

31 Local Professionals Law, accounting and architecture are fields that have certainly become anchored in our daily lives, even in the rural areas of New Mexico. WRITTEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY JOE BURGESS Excellent weather, millions of acres of outdoor recreational opportunities, a university and an abundance of friendly people in the Silver City area continues to entice artists, cyclists, restaurateurs, shop owners and retirees to escape the stress levels associated with big city hassle and interstate highway travel. Silver City Life continues its series recognizing the local professionals who provide services for this diverse collection of residents. They are our neighbors, they care about the schools our children attend and most importantly, they allow us to conduct our business and our lives right here, without having to grapple with the challenges of bigger communities like El Paso, Tucson and Albuquerque. above: Attorney David Lopez, CPA Tom Laws and Architect Jim Redford provide services for the region that would otherwise require traveling to bigger cities and dealing with people who might not understand nor appreciate small town concerns and solutions.

32 David Lopez Attorney at Law I had never been to Silver City, but after graduation, I was hired by Robinson and Quintero. Grant County made me feel at home from day one. I It s especially rewarding when people express gratitude for the services you provide, states David Lopez of Lopez & Associates, P.C. The practice is family-oriented and strives for 100% client satisfaction. Born in Las Vegas, New Mexico, David s father served as Mayor and State Senator and was a professional boxer, poet, businessman and humanitarian. West Las Vegas was recognized during that era by Look magazine as one of five All America Cities in the western region and the Las Vegas Daily Optic said the honor resulted from response to the leadership of its 37-year old mayor, Junio Lopez. Junio s vision for his son was to become a priest or an attorney. David chose the latter. Despite growing up in one of the state s poorest counties, his parents, sisters and brother made him feel rich. My parents were absolutely the best. Mother was my rock. David was an All-State Quarterback and lettered in basketball and track. He turned down football scholarships to UNM and NM Highlands to work in California. It was the six months of working graveyard shift in a California factory 6 days a week 10 hours a day that convinced him that education was the key to success. He returned to Highlands University and graduated Magna Cum Laude. During those college years, he traveled to Seville, Spain for a summer study program and fell in love with Conchi Fernandez Lora, the woman he later married. UNM Law School was a challenge. His father died after his first year in law school and two of his children were born during that time. David worked two jobs and used scholarships to pay for law school, graduating in the top 20 of his class. Conchi was my inspiration, emotional support and driving force. I had always wanted to help people just like my father and Conchi absolutely reinforced that. I had never been to Silver City, David continued, but after graduation in 1989, I was hired by Robinson and Quintero P.C. Grant County made me feel at home from day one. The two Silver City lawyers served as excellent mentors, later became judges and the firm evolved into Lopez and Associates, P.C. My three law associates, Daniel Dietzel, William Perkins and David Gorman are smart, energetic, experienced the best. We are backed by a loyal staff led by Sandy Seitzinger, Wendy Torres, Whitney Munoz, Jean Roof, Leigh Ann Massengill, Chance Lewis and Judith Des Jardins. Sandy has been my only secretary in 17 years. Lopez & Associates primary practice is civil law with an emerging emphasis on personal injury cases. The firm also handles estate planning, property law, business transactions, family law and criminal law. It also has state, city and business contracts and represents children in abuse and neglect cases. David maintains a sharp mind by participating in regional chess tournaments. David and Conchi s sons David and Rodrigo attend the University of Arizona and Alejandro is leaping forward to the fourth grade. David proudly states my son David is an excellent chess player and Rodrigo is in the Honors College studying biochemistry. Alejandro is an excellent student with his entire future in front of him. Not surprisingly, the firm supports community services like El Refugio, Big Brothers, Rotary Club, local schools, the Chamber of Commerce and charities. 30 SILVER CITYLIFE

34 Tom Laws Certified Public Accountant In December 1989, I started Laws & Company. Yes, it was scary because of all the unknowns no salary, no benefits and no guarantee of work. I I had always wanted to work for myself, but it wasn t until 1989 that I took the plunge, relates Tom Laws of Laws & Company, a tax and financial advisory company. Was it scary? Yes it was because of all the unknowns no salary, no benefits, and no guarantee that anyone would give us a shot at handling their taxes or ask for our financial advice. After graduating from New Mexico State with a Bachelor of Accountancy, Tom ventured to San Francisco to work with a construction contractor Longest six months of my life, Tom flatly states. California was too fast-paced for me, except for the freeways that crawled like a snail. I also worked as a cost engineer at the Hartford Nuclear Site. Tom had met Deborah at New Mexico State and since she had grown up in Deming, their next move was back to New Mexico for Phelps Dodge Playas and Tyrone. I moved over to Kennecott Chino for one year and 22 days before it was purchased by Phelps Dodge. Phelps Dodge tended to move accountants and I had already decided that Silver City was where I wanted to raise my children. In December 1989, I started Laws & Company. I have never looked back and so far the practice has been strong. It is always good to have a professional review your tax return, and a person should consider a CPA whenever there is more than a W-2 and mortgage interest form. Estates, trusts and small businesses of every kind should utilize CPAs. New businesses are especially vulnerable to government agencies and many are consumed by regulations. We handle payroll taxes, monthly financial statements and quarterly estimates of taxes. My daughter is interested in government audits and so we are moving into that field. I have recently passed the securities exams that allow me to assist people in financial planning. Once the client needs are well understood, the challenge is bringing together the right investments to meet his or her specific priorities in life. For someone contemplating a career as a CPA, get as much experience as possible before going on your own. More and more it is becoming the accountant s responsibility to keep companies ethical. That s unfair to the CPA, but it s the direction business is moving. Initially there is a tough national professional exam and annually, 40 hours of continuing education are required. Tom and Deborah s family includes Erin, a biologist at the hospital, Ashley, who is studying for the CPA exam while working at Laws & Company and Hanna, a student at Silver High who is into soccer, basketball and golf. And it s no secret that there are three grandchildren! 32 SILVER CITYLIFE

36 Jim Redford Architect Since I grew up in Lordsburg and my mother served as Hidalgo County Treasurer, it has been a lot of fun preserving historic locations that were part of my childhood surroundings. I It s very rewarding to see the results of your work over a period of years, says architect Jim Redford. We have handled projects at Western New Mexico University from 1990 to 2008, many of which have been historical restorations. The Hidalgo County Library in Lordsburg was especially challenging, as were projects at Shakespeare ghost town. Since I grew up in Lordsburg and my mother served as Hidalgo County Treasurer, it has been a lot of fun preserving historic locations that were part of my childhood surroundings. Jim graduated from Rice University in architecture and art and early on partnered with an architectural landscape group in Dallas. Much of his practice was overseas from His wife, Sam, was his travel agent during that period, arranging Jim s trips for five years before actually meeting face to face. They were married in When Jim s younger daughter started college, he decided he was done with big city life. I had always planned to return to New Mexico and when Sam and I dined with my sister at the Buckhorn during a cool summer drizzle, that sealed Silver City as our destination. The move was tough at first with no business prospects in Silver City. I patched a lot of buildings locally and fixed roofs. Initially we did more driving than designing with projects from Columbus to Quemado. At times we appeared to be ecumenical architects with our church projects appearing in every town in the area. In association with another company, we landed the renovation of Harlan Hall at WNMU, and we have now performed work for the university for 18 years. We have a good local team for smaller projects and continue to associate with larger firms for the big ones. I feel strongly about supporting each other locally whenever possible. We have designed about three area homes a year for 19 years and most of the people we designed for are still our friends. Hopefully, that speaks well for our work. Currently we are not accepting new work. The EMS building at the hospital is in progress under our direction, as well as a new city hall for Lordsburg and jail for Grant County. Jim was involved with starting the local Home Builder s Association, pushing for building plans and utilizing architects. He served as subdivision committee chairman for the state Home Builders Association, worked with city and county subdivision laws and ordinances, served on appeals boards, participated in subdivision mediation and is the government affairs person for the local association. I ve been practicing for 43 years and am extremely lucky to have my partner Sam who handles the bills, specifications, etc., and very fortunate to find local engineers who share similar ethics and work practices. 34 SILVER CITYLIFE

38 medical Topically Injectible Medicines WRITTEN BY BRETT FERNEAU PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOE BURGESS AND COURTESY OF ALEXIS HARSH, CNP Recent advances in medical techniques and technology have been phenomenal. Medical products and services scarcely imagined a generation ago have become available nationwide. The vast variety of healthcare options has, understandably, left most of us feeling encouraged but slightly confused. An area of medicine that probably shoulders more than its share of public misinformation is the field of medical aesthetics. Once thought to be exclusively intended for movie stars and politicians, this impressive list of products and services is treated with an air of mystery by the media. Actually, the term simply refers to the healing of damaged skin. The skin is the body s largest organ, says Alexis Harsh, a certified nurse practitioner (CNP), and its first line of defense against infection. In her Silver City clinic, Alexis and nurse Krista Wood, RN/BSN, began responding to the growing demand for affordable local medical aesthetics services four years ago. These days, in addition to pediatric and primary care, Alexis office also provides relief to severe acne sufferers, children burdened by birthmarks, and an increasing number of patients with sun-damaged skin. Hair removal, vein, rosacea and cellulite treatments are offered as well. The technologies used include laser and intense pulsed light, microdermabrasion and topically injectible medicines. A careful look at the list of services would suggest that pigmented lesions caused by sunlight can actually be treated using a specific light spectrum modeled after the same source. Is this true? opposite: Treating many forms of damaged skin, Krista Wood, RN/BSN and Alexis Harsh, CNP and owner, utilize numerous tools and methods, including topically injectible medicines like Botox Cosmetic. 36 SILVER CITYLIFE

39

40 Before Before After After You d better believe it, Alexis replies with enthusiasm. Isn t that fascinating? She goes on to explain that while broad-spectrum sunlight damages the exterior skin layer before reflecting away, other derivative light spectrums penetrate the deeper layers to promote healing. What this means to the rest of us is that there is finally an alternative to cutting, burning or freezing off skin lesions, all of which are methods that cause scarring. Scar tissue is a modification of healthy skin, says Alexis, so we try to avoid creating more. She reports that acne sufferers see the positive results of a single treatment within a week. Alexis and Krista would also like to shed a different sort of light on another aspect of aesthetics that is widely misunderstood: topically injectible medicines, including Botox Cosmetic. A purified natural protein substance first identified in 1895, Botox has been successfully used to treat a variety of conditions and ailments around the world, including spina bifida, back pain and migraines. There is no generic botox. Botox is manufactured exclusively by Allergans, Inc., which top left: Medial Calf Veins: Vascular Therapy on mixed cluster of spider veins.

The improvement of pigmentation, cyschromia, fine lines, significant wrinkles, scarring, texture and tightening are all possible. It is also used to remove benign lesions. The variable square pulsing of the Er:Yag laser allows treatments to range from non-abrasive to fully ablative and from cold ablation to heat only therapies. The remarkable smooth mode is more controllable than plasma with similar results. The Erbium albative settings give results similar to CO2 lasers with much less downtime. top: 85 year old woman: skin rejuvenation.

As with all other aesthetics treatments available through her practice, Alexis offers photo documentation actual before and after pictures demonstrating the anticipated outcome. Interestingly, Alexis and Krista estimate that 25 per cent of their aesthetics clientele are men. It s not just a woman thing, Alexis confirms. We all want to look our best. Studies done with children verify that we all react to appearances. If we look good, we tend to feel good, so you might say that looking better is better. Aesthetics services are affordable for most people who want them, so why not reap the benefits? above: Minimally invasive outpatient procedures are utilized by Alexis Harsh and Krista Wood to treat skin concerns at their clinic.

45 Driver The s WRITTEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY JOE BURGESS AND JUDY DOUBRAVA we depend ON Four Familiar Faces: Supplying Silver City with Products & Service Distribution is one of the major factors that keeps America strong and allows rural communities to become shining stars. We rarely question why there are bananas in the grocery market every day and heart-regulating medications at the pharmacies. Silver City Life tips its hat to a few of the many drivers who strive to deliver products on time and unbroken and usually with a smile, despite a fast-break pace that requires a lot of dedication. They know the streets of Silver City and the outlying county roads like the backs of their hands. They love the area and enjoy the people they serve. above: Delivering local products on a daily basis are David Arballo, RAC Transport driver from Las Cruces; Hector Arriaga, co-owner of Pan American Barber and Beauty Supply in El Paso; Michelle Geels, DHL International driver from Silver City; and Victor Holguin, Shamrock Foods driver from Deming. SILVER CITYLIFE 43

46 Hector Arriaga Pan American Beauty WRITTEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY JUDY DOUBRAVA When mankind first set foot on the moon, Hector Arriaga stepped into the beauty supply business. The year was 1969 and he worked at a beauty supply store in El Paso named Kole's. Hector and his brother, Willie, worked there for 12 years filling bottles with hair tonic and oil plus delivering supplies to the various barber and beauty businesses in El Paso. After the death of the Kole's owner, Hector and Willie decided to continue in beauty supply sales. They received a loan for just $30,000 to launch their own endeavor, Pan American Barber and Beauty Supply. In the beauty business, you have to be accepted by a brand-name manufacturer to carry their products. Since they were new, no supplier was willing to give them this privilege, so they had to sell the bare necessities: combs, brushes, rollers and various generic hair creams and tonics. Finally, a representative from Helene Curtis recognized their sales potential and gave them their start carrying 'label' products. After that, Sebastian, Wella and Nucleic A products soon followed. Hector has been the traveling sales representative for Pan American for all of southwest New Mexico for about 40 years. Hector said, "I figured out my mileage recently and I could have driven around the world twice!" The stylists have come and gone, but once you know Hector there's a special bond. Clients aren t clients anymore. They re family, Hector states. Even customers have become acquainted with Hector from his frequent visits over the decades. The Drifter Motel has been Hector s other home on his visits to Silver City. They know when I m coming and they ve booked the same room all this time." Hector says, Beauticians are like movie stars. I had to ask, Why? Because of the high divorce rate, he says with a chuckle. He admits it was hard on his family at first, being gone a lot, but everyone got used to his schedule. Good thing because Hector wouldn't give up his long distance 'family' for the moon. 44 SILVER CITYLIFE

47 David Arballo RAC Transport WRITTEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY JOE BURGESS I I always wanted to drive a truck, says David Arballo of RAC Transport. I was raised in South-central California and when I was knee-high to my father, he let me drive a truck in the fields as vegetables were loaded. It s in my blood. I even taught my 14 year-old sister to drive when I was only ten. Dad owned a truck company and my older brothers also went into trucking. When I retired as a machinist from Textron in California, I attended the Swift driving school in Phoenix and earned my CDL-A license. In Las Cruces, I started driving a school bus and passed the RAC terminal almost every day for a year. In 1999, I jumped on an opening for RAC s Silver City route. I deliver to Silver City, Glenwood, Alma, Mule Creek and even to ranches that always seem to be five or six miles off the pavement. We haul anything that will fit in a trailer. I ve been caught up in low hanging phone wires in Silver City and sometimes winter weather is a challenge. Occasionally, I have had to ask people to meet me at the bottom of a hill. People in the Silver City area have always been very helpful. David s family moved from California to Las Cruces where he attended Court Junior High and Las Cruces High School. David was drafted and stationed at a German base near where his father had served during World War II. I had always wanted to come back to Las Cruces. In fact, I met my wife Nadine at church there many years before. One day I showed up at her door on my Harley and wearing my leathers after driving from California scared her half to death before she realized who it was. We haven t turned loose since.

48 Michelle Geels DHL International WRITTEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY JOE BURGESS Okay, so tell me again why this petite Australian-born lady with a college degree is delivering freight for DHL International? The only answer that I have, replies Michelle Geels, is that I love the rural interaction with people here. I like being outside and witnessing community changes. I would never do this in the city, but in Grant County, it s great. Michelle followed her family to Silver City in Her father was an engineer in the mining industry. Her New Zealand mother decided to remain in Silver City and Michelle proceeded to earn a degree in art from Western New Mexico University. In 1992, a friend mentioned that Airborne needed a part time driver. Michelle applied and a couple of hours per week soon became 35. DHL bought Airborne in 2003, Michelle added, and our uniforms became much more colorful! I deliver freight until the job s done, whatever it takes. We deliver to both businesses and residential locations and both overnight and ground shipments. Once I was given a box that smelled horribly bad and of course it was my last delivery. It turned out to be dead crawdads. Another time I had a delivery to a new subdivision that had no street signs and was truly in the middle of nowhere. The lady was ecstatic about my finding her home. She called to her husband to witness their first delivery. I love animals, but have learned to be very wary around dogs. I never enter a fenced area with a beware sign. I have been chased and bitten I have a few battle scars to show for it. Michelle s mother became involved with Tour of the Gila in 1982, and Michelle, who has driven support vehicles for the race, is now co-director along with Jack Brennan. 46 SILVER CITYLIFE

49 Victor Holguin Shamrock Foods TWRITTEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY JOE BURGESS The only thing I deliver to one of the area elementary schools, says Shamrock Foods driver Victor Holguin, is five 5-gallon buckets of pickles they love their pickles. I deliver food and anything related to food, like glassware and paper goods, to restaurants, schools and ice cream shops. In the summer, the deliveries are lighter no school, no pickles. The busiest season is between Thanksgiving and New Year s. Victor was born and raised in Deming. After driving for a local rancher and Maloof s, he began hauling produce from the west coast to El Paso Furr s stores. Even just hauling between Phoenix and El Paso, Victor could never plan anything around his personal life. When my first daughter was born, I began looking for a local driving job. Since joining Shamrock 15 years ago, I have really enjoyed delivering to the local area that includes Deming, Bayard, Silver City and Cliff. I have met a lot of good people in the Silver City area and I have family in Bayard. Victor drives about 600 miles/week x 50 weeks. One year the roads were very snow-packed, he states, but I have actually encountered more delays because of wind and dust. On several occasions I had to wait in Hurley for winds to die down. Shamrock stresses family ties and looks out for us. The company also encourages its drivers to participate in the annual Albuquerque truck-driving competitions. Victor has participated in ten state competitions, taking first in six of them. The wins gave him the opportunities to participate in national competitions in Tampa, Columbus, Ohio, Atlanta and twice in New Orleans. Victor hopes to put in another ten years with Shamrock, and then try something new. But he confides that he truly enjoys staying home and hanging out with his wife, Nina, daughters Sarah and Brianna and his in-laws. SILVER CITYLIFE 47

50 pets Happy Endings Tin Tin Nancy & Archie Hogue Nancy and Archie Hogue were mourning the loss of a beloved pet. Knowing that they could never find a replacement for their other little dog, they just wanted to look and see what the shelter had to offer. Nancy didn't have the courage to walk down the row of dog kennels until she heard her husband say, "Nancy, I think you need to come see this little guy." Tin Tin was an instant bond with his new family. When they brought him home, he looked around as if thinking, "Is this house really all mine?" Microchip Your Pet WRITTEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY JUDY DOUBRAVA It's horrible to have a missing pet. Microchipping your pet is the newest way to find lost pets. Nationally, only 17% of dogs and 2% of cats end up back with their owners by way of finding them at shelters or other means. Collars can be ripped off. Tags can be lost as well. Having a microchip is good insurance for getting your pet back. The microchip is the size of a grain of rice that is injected between the shoulders just under the skin. Gila Animal Clinic offers this microchip service. There are two major companies that serve as registries for microchips: Avid ( and Home Again ( Through Home Again, the registration fee is $ When you lose your pet, contact them and they will contact local shelters and veterinarian clinics in your area to let them know of your missing pet. above: Microchipping is the latest method for recovering lost pets. They are, after all, family members that simply find it difficult to request help. 48 SILVER CITYLIFE Francis & Coffee Rinda Metz Rinda Metz was advised to walk for therapy after a back injury. She liked hiking but needed help carrying supplies to remote locations. She acquired her first llama to help with these needs. "I just fell in love with them," Rinda said. Of the six llamas she now has, four are rescued. Most llamas that are rescued have a tendency to come from people that do not have the resources to care for them. Rinda gives her llamas plenty of attention by taking them on pack trips into the wilderness. She also shears their wool once a year and spins it into yarn.

51 Callie & Bleu Nicole Robbins Nicole Robbins, our Silver City/Grant County Chamber of Commerce director is not only helping our community, but has also provided a home for an unwanted dog. Nicole brought Callie to our community when she moved here, but adopted Bleu from the shelter to be her companion. Bleu was very underweight and was turned in as a stray. Nicole guessed that he must have been previously owned because he could already sit and lie down on command. She wanted to name him 'Wilson' because he bounced just like a ball, but settled on 'Bleu' because 'he just seemed so blue when I visited the shelter,' Nicole added. Kitty Nancy & Tom Johnson Even though her name is ordinary, Kitty is no ordinary cat. She appeared in the neighborhood and didn't seem to belong to anyone. Nancy's stepson, Tyler, noticed her hanging around the house. Kitty brings all sorts of creatures home including mice and snakes. She helps with the gardening. Her special skill, though, is hiking. "She follows right along on the trails," says Nancy as we walk along their driveway. Kitty pauses occasionally to chase a lizard or two, then catches up with her humans. Mr. Bruno Ward Rudick Mr. Bruno, formally known as Macho Man at the shelter, was adopted out four or five times, but was returned each time. Two of Ward's friends adopted him for a short time and were ready to take him back to the shelter. Ward took pity on Mr. Bruno and welcomed him to his home with four other dogs. "It took about four months to get him over his separation anxiety," said Ward. Mr. Bruno joins Boojie, Mr. Tickdawg, Miss Blue and Spot who all have their own heartening stories with happy endings since they've met Ward. Lizzie Doyne Wrealli One night, a friend of Doyne Wrealli's found his dog playing with a ball of fluff. Doyne was presented with a flea ridden, catatonic with fear, not-yet-weaned, bony, filthy kitten. She had been born feral under a trailer, and had ventured out, right into the dog's mouth. Though not physically injured by the dog, she had to be bottle fed until she caught onto eating solid food, and had to overcome a boatload of terror while she gained weight and lost fleas and worms. First called Little Bits, Elizabeth became an exquisite long-haired lavender-point Siamese with startlingly blue eyes. SILVER CITYLIFE 49

52 outdoors Dog Packing WRITTEN BY M. H. DUTCH SALMON It was a greyhound named Goofy that taught me the good sense in hiking with a pack dog. He was a magnificent physical specimen and meanwhile I wasn t getting any younger. Something clicked. I was thumbing through a CampMor catalog, spied a dog pack for sale, and ordered one out. Our first journey was a revelation. It was just a 3-day fishing trip along the Gila River but the hike in and out of the canyon is the roughest few miles of trail I know of in our local wilderness. I started out by loading Goofy s food (a few pounds of high protein kibble) on one side of his pack, with 4 apples and a water bottle on the other side to balance the load maybe a halfdozen pounds in all. He never fussed about carrying the pack and I thought, it s not much weight, but it s six pounds I m not carrying. On the hike out 3 days later all the food was gone so I gave Goofy the cook gear. Now he had maybe a dozen pounds on his back instead of mine and he still made the hike with ease. He was good company, gave me someone to talk to, and kept the bears and the coons out of our camp. Goofy is gone to the happy hound hunting grounds. Since then I have used a coonhound named Ben as a packer and a saluki/greyhound cross named Badger. But none has served any better than my current companion, Chance, a greyhound/saluki/trailhound mix. He s about 26 at the withers and 60 lbs. and can easily carry lbs. on a pack trip. Just like people, some dogs make good packers while others are worthless on the trail. Some pets (and people) are just too lazy or out of shape to want to keep up with the pace. Others are unreliable and 50 SILVER CITYLIFE

53 may wander off and get lost. If the dog wanders off with some of your camping stuff in his pack you re both in trouble. So a good pack dog is active, strong, in good physical condition, and is the sort of companion that wants to be with you all the time. Most of the sporting,working and hound breeds are good candidates. I d look for a dog that s at least 24 at the shoulder and 50 lbs. and up. A good pack dog in top shape can carry onefourth his weight and perhaps as much as one-third, depending on the dog and the difficulty of the hike. So take the time to weigh your dog and weigh his pack. Start with a light load and some day hikes till he gets the hang of it and works himself into shape. Dogs can t carry tents, sleeping bags, and other bulky things very well. They can carry compact stuff, like their food and yours, water bottles, cook gear, etc. Balance the load as best you can and watch him on the trail. If the load is heavy on one side, shift an apple or a water bottle or a couple of granola bars to even out the weight. None of my dogs has shown any resentment of the pack. We hike no more than 5 hours a day anyway; the rest of the time we are around camp or fishing and neither one of us is wearing a pack. I don t work the dog any harder than I work myself and I m past the days of trying to hike from dawn to dark. A dog has always been a fine companion in the wilderness. A good pack dog can lighten your load by 10 to 20 lbs. and change your pack trip from a work session into a wilderness walk. To find a dog pack, go to: campmor.com, or, cabelas.com, or, llbean.com.

54 birding Summer Birding WRITTEN BY GENE LEWIS PHOTOGRAPHY BY DALE & MARIAN ZIMMERMAN With the greater Silver City area being one of the best places for seeing birds in the country, the summer season here offers a plethora of species just ready for viewing. Some places are within a few miles such as Little Walnut Picnic Area where Acorn Woodpeckers should be easily seen along with such small birds as Mountain Chickadees and Bushtits, or the larger Mexican Jay. Going another direction, above Pinos Altos at Cherry Creek and McMillan campgrounds, the birds have a different look. Some are spectacular like the Painted Redstart, usually found not far from the stream, and certainly not high in the trees like the duller Olive Warbler. For contrast look for the Redfaced Warbler, a real eye catcher, usually found in the lower branches. One thing about the Red-faced Warblers is that the males and females look alike. Not so with the Western Tanager, he with the red hood and she a duller, yellowish color.

55 Summer and Hepatic Tanagers, the Summer more easily found along the Gila River while the Hepatic likes higher elevations.. Summer features two specialties for this part of the state. The Common Black-Hawk will be along streams, especially the Gila River where it searches for frogs, minnows and perhaps some crawdads. Last year one was found along San Vicente Creek, AKA The Big Ditch, and it has returned this year as well. Zone-tailed Hawks are found in more upland areas, and seem to be fewer in number, but they can be confused with the Common Black-Hawk since both are mostly black. Sometimes Zonetailed Hawks will be found soaring with Turkey Vultures and Common Ravens since they blend in well and potential prey won t be alerted to possible danger. Both of these black raptors are exciting to find so keep looking for them, and all the other specialties in this birding paradise. Happy birding! SILVER CITYLIFE 53

Our goal is to keep prices reasonable and the quality the best so that everybody can afford to use our products. The Super Salve Company has nine employees, some of whom have been there for 12 years. The firm was recently hired to produce a private label salve for a national retailer. This has been an exciting year. In the last six months, my amazing crew has filled 50,000 tubes of our salve for that company, Denise reports with pride.
