April 30, 2014

IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

State Police Checkpoints and Saturation Patrols in Union and Colfax Counties in the Summer of 2014

 

Union and Colfax Counties — State Police will be conducting Sobriety Checkpoints, Saturation Patrols, and Registration, Insurance and Drivers’ License Checkpoints in Union and Colfax Counties during the months of May, June and July 2014.

 

Our efforts continue to show a significant reduction in alcohol related fatalities. This is attributed to the continued media attention and intensive advertising. These checkpoints are helping to change society’s attitude about drinking and driving. People are choosing to not drink and drive. This is the biggest step in keeping impaired drivers from crashing into our friends and families.

 

Hundreds of lives could be saved each year if every driver had the courage to make the right decision. 

 

Who:    New Mexico State Police in cooperation with other agencies

 

What:    Sobriety Checkpoints, Saturation Patrols and Registration/Insurance/DL Checkpoints

 

When:   May, June and July 2014

 

Where:  Union and Colfax

 

Why:    So we can ENDWI in New Mexico

State Land Commissioner Announces Triangle Gallegos, LP Wins Lease Bid for Proposed Wind Farm near Clayton

State Land Commissioner Announces Triangle Gallegos, LP Wins Lease Bid for Proposed Wind Farm near Clayton 

(CLAYTON, New Mexico) – – State Land Commissioner Ray Powell announced today that Triangle Gallegos, LP, a wind energy company based in Hereford, Texas, won the bid for a wind farm project to be located on about 19,000 acres of State Trust Land and 31,000 acres of private land 35 miles west of Clayton in Union County. Transmission service will be provided by Lucky Corridor, LLC. 

Triangle Gallegos, LP, a joint venture between Triangle Cattle Co., Ltd. and Gallegos Wind Farm, LLC, won the bid and agrees to lease payment terms that are estimated to generate $47 million of revenue for State Trust Land beneficiaries over the 45 year project life. Beneficiaries of the land being leased are public schools, UNM, NMSU, the New Mexico Military Institute and the NM Behavioral Health Institute. 

The overall proposed project ultimately could generate about 500 megawatts of electricity via 285 wind turbines — enough electricity to supply up to 200,000 homes. The development would reduce CO2 emissions by 1.3 million tons and save over 550 million gallons of water annually compared to coal driven electricity. The project would be built in two phases starting in 2015, creating 400 total construction jobs and about 20 new, well paying permanent jobs. 

“A new and growing source of income for the State Land Office is renewable energy leasing, which has become the largest growth area for our Commercial Resources Division. And, as a result of my Administration’s commitment to advancing renewable energy, the State Land Office now hosts the largest distributive and commercial solar arrays in the state and soon State Trust lands will host the largest wind farm,” said New Mexico State Land Commissioner Ray Powell. “This new project will build upon this success. With the wind and solar projects in the pipeline, the Land Office will generate hundreds of millions of dollars in future years for support of our public schools, universities and hospitals throughout the state.” 

“We are grateful to the State Land Office, whose vision and commitment to the sustainable development of state land encourages businesses like ours to explore investing here,” said Glen Black, Triangle Gallegos, LP’s CEO. “We look forward to continued collaboration with the State Land Office, Union County, and other community stakeholders as we work toward making this project a reality, by bringing jobs and other economic benefits to the local communities and to the State of New Mexico.” 

A live, oral public auction was held at 11:00 a.m. on April 28 at the Union County Courthouse located in Clayton, New Mexico. 

The New Mexico State Land Commissioner is an elected state official responsible for administering the state’s land grant trust. Thirteen million acres of land were granted to New Mexico in 1898 and 1910. Each tract is held in trust for the public schools, universities, and hospitals. During the past three years, state trust lands produced more than $1.7 billion in income for the beneficiaries, which saves the average household about $850 a year in taxes. 

Triangle Gallegos, LP (“Triangle Gallegos”) is a joint venture between Triangle Cattle Co., Ltd. and Gallegos Wind Farm, LLC. Triangle currently operates the Gallegos Ranch as a successful cattle operation. Gallegos is developing 500 MW of wind and solar energy projects on its own and neighboring land. Gallegos Phase 1 will anchor the Mora Line transmission project, while Gallegos Phase 2 is an anchor customer of the Lucky Corridor transmission project. Triangle Cattle Co., Ltd. is owned by Glen Black, Coy Myrick and J.D. Myrick, who operate various endeavors in Texas and New Mexico, including the development of more than 150,000 acres of wind and solar energy projects. 

Wind Turbines much bigger than the old water windmills that dot the New Mexico landscape will soon be seen on the plains west of Clayton.

Special Meeting Names new City Manager

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

 

Raton city commissioners met in a special session Monday April 28, 2014 to discuss a couple of matters that came in to late to make the last regular meeting and make a decision about the city manager’s position.

Commissioners approved a resolution to begin the process for financial assistance from the New Mexico Finance Authority. According to City Manager Butch McGowen this resolution will get the ball rolling on some financial assistance for the city.

Commissioner Ron Chavez was appointed to the Financial Advisory Committee.

Commissioners also approved the Juvenile Justice Grant Agreement between the city and Children Youth and Families Department. The city will administer the grant for free this year but will have to charge to cover expenses related to administering that grant next year.

Commissioners then retired to executive session to discuss the city manager’s position. After that session commissioners announced that Scott Berry has accepted the position of city manager at a salary of $90,000. Berry will assume the reins at city hall on September 1st which will give him time to complete several contracts that he has with the city for street work and the dam project at Lake Maloya.

Commissioners will meet again on May 6 at 6:00 p.m. for a budget workshop and to approve an audit firm for the next city audit.  The next regular meeting will be held on May 13 at city hall at 6:00 p.m.

RHS Student starts Autism Awareness Walk

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

What is hoped to be an annual event was the brain child of a very special Raton High student. 14 year old Johnny Gentry, a student with Autism, wanted to bring awareness to the affliction. 

Gentry spoke to the small first time crowd and told them that he wanted people to know that people with Autism “are not weird or stupid and Autism is not contagious. We are not spoiled brats who throw temper tantrums, we are human beings who struggle with what may seem to you as normal day life.” He added that they learn differently and what may take a normal person once or twice to understand may take a person with Autism 20 or 30 times to understand. Autistics may have trouble expressing their feelings and understanding yours. 

He added that it takes a special understanding to take on an Autistic child and that he feels fortunate that God put him in a place with understanding parents and an understanding community. The staff at Raton Public Schools works with about 13 children in the school system according to Lou Martinez, head of the special ed department. She told KRTN that the students are special and have their own unique qualities. Autism is not easy to diagnose because it doesn’t follow a specific set of symptoms. Autistic students can have varying degrees of symptoms. They can be very high functioning and sociable to withdrawn and almost impossible to reach in the worst cases. 

This walk was started by one of those special students. 

 

Johnny Gentry, a Raton High Student with Autism, is the driving force behind this Autism Awareness Walk. He hopes to make this an annual event and for it to grow and grow the understanding of Autism.

VA Clinic Cuts the Ribbon

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media 

Today was a special day for veterans in northeastern New Mexico as the new VA Clinic was officially dedicated and opened to the public at a ribbon cutting ceremony this morning.

It took over six years to get the project completed. The project started with the help of Retired General Gene Sisneros and former Senator Jeff Bingaman who worked together to get the necessary ground work in place and to start to clear the way for funding the project. Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich along with Congressman Ben Ray Lujan continued on with securing the funding and making sure the project was completed. According to Congressman Ban Ray Lujan there wasn’t a phone call that went by that Sisneros didn’t remind the New Mexico delegation of the importance of getting this project done.

The importance of the clinic was mentioned several times especially in light of traveling to Albuquerque to seek medical services. Today this clinic will bring that care to Raton and the surrounding area it will also bring forth video medical services where in help from a doctor or specialist in a far away location can be part of the diagnosis and treatment for veterans. 

As Congressman Lujan mentioned it is a good day. A good day indeed for veterans who have served this country and deserve the medical services they require.
