In Loving Memory of Marlene Shrock

Marlene Shrock, age 82, died Thursday, July 17, 2014 in Clovis, New Mexico. 

Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Monday, July 21, 2014 at the First Baptist Church in Clayton, New Mexico with Rev. Kyle Bueermann, pastor, officiating. Burial will follow in the Clayton Memorial Cemetery by Hass Funeral Directors of Clayton, New Mexico. 

Marlene Shrock was born on August 3, 1931 in Snyder, Texas, to Marvin E. Dever and Una Lee (McGinty) Dever. She married James E. Shrock on July 11, 1949 in Portales, New Mexico, and he preceded her in death on December 31, 2011. Marlene lived in Elida, NM, as a child and lived and worked in Portales, NM, prior to moving to Clayton in 1974. She worked on the farm picking cotton and in a number of retail positions, but most of her life was spent working with her husband, James. For 56 years they worked in sales and service of natural gas and diesel irrigation engines. In addition to bookkeeping and office work, she was always ready to make trips for parts or whatever was needed. She first — and always — took great pride in her family; secondarily, her passion was fashion – she loved her wardrobe and jewelry. Marlene was always a joy to be around and will be missed greatly by all of her family and friends. In addition to her parents and her husband, Marlene was preceded in death by 3 brothers: Leroy Dever, Alvin Dever and Carl Dever, 1 sister: Evelyn Dever, and a great-grandson. 


3 DAUGHTERS: Kaye Barnes and her husband Rusty of Clovis, New Mexico, Jamie Edwards and her husband Jim of Electra, Texas and Charlotte Shrock of Guymon, Oklahoma. 

9 GRANDCHILDREN: K’Aun Wild and her husband Mike, D’Ann Martindell and her husband Don, Kitza Barnes, Kevin Holmes, Jason Holmes and his wife Kristi, Layne Holmes and his wife Ginnie, Ricky Myers and his wife Dawn, Michael Myers and his wife Kathlene and Justin Spriggs and his wife Kaye. 

19 Great-Grandchildren 

4 SISTERS: Billie Wells of Portales, NM, Elizabeth Morrison and her husband Charles of La Port, Texas, Mattielene Hamilton and her husband Gary of Shoreacres, Texas, and Kathy Caywood and her husband Joe of Capitan, NM.

School District to Move Forward on Consolidated Elementary School

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media


Raton Public Schools Blue Ribbon committee met last week to begin work on a consolidated elementary school solution noting that this attempt failed last time, which was about five years ago.

Jose Archuleta who was on the committee for the last go round indicated that he felt the reasons for its failure last time were “1) In- house failure- Employees were afraid of losing jobs. Very important issue. 2) Retirees- perception of the looks of the schools. I went there and it was good enough for me, etc. 3) Fixed income- We need to let them know it will be more expensive later on. 4) Voter apathy-“ (From meeting minutes)

The three elementary schools in question are Work Project Administration (WPA)  era buildings. Kearny was built in 1936, Longfellow in 1937 with Columbian being built in 1938. One issue the school district will have to deal with concerning buildings this old is that they are on the State and National Historic Registry.

The committee developed a list of items that the community would likely be concerned about:

1. Location

2. Potential Growth

3. Voter registration

4. Consolidate- Will employees lose jobs? Inform our employees and bus drivers.

5. Help fixed income community members understand the importance of the new school to our community. We have people who will be financially affected and how to get their support.

6.  Cost to everyone- 

7.  Old buildings and the plan for them-

8.  Technology-

9. Why consolidate- Old buildings are not a conducive atmosphere for education and

     students; School environment needs to be fresh and new for our students for the next 50 years.

Among the issues that the committee sees to justify the project include fiscal responsibility in right sizing the school for the population, now and in the future. Educational suitability, providing a more suitable learning environment and sharing educational resources will be helped by consolidation into one school building. The age of the schools and building design affect student security and operational security.  Buildings built over 70 years ago were not built for todays technology and need for security in the world we live in today.

Another concern is that if the schools make the number one position on the list of schools that need replaced and the bond issue fails again there is a state statute that could impose a tax on the school district. The list of schools or facilities assessment database is created by the Public School Capital Outlay Council (PSCOC). The following URL is how the council determines where a school ranks in the top 100 list of the 704 schools in the state. (http://www.nmlegis.gov/lcs/handouts/Overview_of_Ranking_Methodology.pdf)

The school district is looking to fund the new facility with a bond election. The proposed bond will be for $7.1 million and will be retired in 12 to 14 years. The tax impact from this bond will be about $109 per year on $100,000 of taxable value or $14.65 per month.

The current bond status for the school district is as follows.

  • 1998  Series Bond  Issued 5/1/1998 for 1.1 Million. Retired 10/1/2014
  • 2008 Series Bond Issued 6/1/2008 for 2.4 Million to be retired 6/1/2021 ( 7 Years…1.735 mils still owed).
  • Proposal for a 2014 Bond for 7.1 Million to be retired in approximately 12-14 years.

The committee reviewed a power point presentation, which included a proposed project schedule. 

Raton Schools Prelim Project Schedule

The committee will meet again on July 28, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Contact the Raton Public Schools Superintendent’s Office for more information. 575-445-9111.  

Raton School District GO Financing Options (2 issues)x (2)

Raton School District GO Financing Options (2 issues)x (2)


What are the advantages of consolidating: 1. Community and Economic Betterment/Growth.  2. Fiscal responsibility due to lower enrollments (we are currently wasting tax dollars). 3. Physical and Operational security for our children. 4. Education Suitability is markedly improved. 5. Value of personal property goes up.

Location: To be determined by the school board after reviewing the Feasibility Report. This will most likely happen at the August 11th board meeting. Because of Acreage requirements the two most likely locations are the RHS Campus and Longfellow.

Cost in taxes: Approximately  $14.47 per 100K per month in property value. The 1998 series bond will be paid off in October, prior to receiving invoices for the new bond.

 Disposition of the current buildings: The New Mexico Historic Preservation Office requires the following. 1. Document the need for demolition (PSFA and school Architects), 2. Show efforts of Adaptive Reuse (document attempts to sell structures to viable buyers). 3. Demonstrate the school’s efforts at consolidating into the buildings (cannot provide 140 students classroom space in a prudent and feasible manner). 4. Other “prudent and feasible alternatives”.  NOTE: When all the criteria are met for one building it will also apply to the other two buildings.

Consolidation affecting employment issue: Enrollment not consolidation will impact staffing of administrators, teachers and teacher aides. Square footage will be reduced and this will impact custodial staff. Maintenance staff will not be affected because we are one person short already. Number of Bus Drivers will be affected by mileage and number of students. If this is reduced then drivers will be cut back.

Can we consolidate without new buildings: We need to find classroom space for 140 students if we remove one current building.  It would require moving 5th grade into the RMS and increasing classroom sizes across the K-8 and reducing number of teachers. It would also leave an empty building that the district could not afford to demolish or maintain. The buildings are falling apart.

What are the savings to consolidating: 1. Over 100K in Operation and Maintenance per year. 2. Some mileage within transportation would be reduced. 3. Less square footage to clean. 4. Newer more efficient building will need less maintenance. 5. Energy efficiency. 6. Travel for music, art, PE and professional staff will be eliminated.

What is the total cost: 7.1 million for Raton and the Sate of NM (PSCOC) is being asked to assume the rest. The state is offering a 57/43% share in cost but we are asking a waiver of all costs over 7.1 million.

Potential Growth: If the community wishes to grow then quality schools are critical for people who move to Raton. Most lay people judge the quality of the school not only by academic standards but by the attention the community gives to school properties.

It is important to provide schools that provide classrooms that will prepare students for the 21st Century Career and Readiness Skills. It is crucial to build schools that protect our students from outside threats. It is important to build our schools that re the right size for our current enrollment.

Amtrak CEO Visits Raton

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

A large crowd gathered Saturday morning at the Raton train depot awaiting the arrival of the Joe Boardman CEO of Amtrak who travel to New Mexico to garner support for Amtrak track maintenance. 

Many of the crowd greeted the Amtrak Special Train with signs stating “Save our City Don’t Take our Southwest Chief its our Lifeblood.” Raton is here today because of the railroad. It grew up with the railroad as stop for water and coal to run the train. Today the rail through Raton is only used by Amtrak as BNSF no longer runs freight trains through Raton. This is where the issue begins, since BNSF no longer uses the rail they are not interested in maintaining the line that runs from Albuquerque to Newton, Kansas. 

While Amtrak is funded by the federal government they have used track that are maintained by other railroad companies. This stretch of line is need of repairs and BNSF doesn’t want to pay the costs alone and is seeking the help of the states of Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico. 

As Senator Martin Heinrich indicated in these economic times we need to form alliances to fund things like this. New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez feels that the way New Mexico statutes are written that state wouldn’t be able to do this. Once again this thinking comes down to a matter of opinion based on the way the anti-donation statutes are written. According to Joe Boardman Kansas and Colorado are on board with helping Amtrak maintain the line. Will New Mexico come on board? Stay Tuned.

The Following is from Mark Bentley’s Blogspot about the SW Chief

New Mexico is economically depressed.  No one can dispute that given the state’s ranking of those on the list of growth and unemployment numbers.


So, if that is the case, why not do everything possible to not only grow businesses, but save those which currently exist?

There is some question about whether the Southwest Chief railroad train that runs through Raton, Las Vegas and Albuquerque will continue doing so, and that would be tragic.

A year or so ago, Amtrak, the quasi-government, quasi-private company that operates the nation’s passenger trains told officials in New Mexico, Colorado and Kansas they needed the states to participate in keeping the track and signals up to snuff.  It would cost each state about $4 million a year for 10 years.  $40 million total.

The issue was raised during the last Legislative session but didn’t go anywhere, and there have not been any strong signals from the governor that she would support paying out the money. 

Some say that the demands by Amtrak amount to nothing more than blackmail.  The company says they will have to re-route the train if they cannot get the help to maintain the tracks and signals.  Colorado and Kansas have anted up.

Well, last week, the CEO of Amtrak, Joe Beardman, boarded a special train to make a tour of the three states and plead his case.  He stopped in Kansas.  He stopped in Colorado and met in both states with officials about the need.

When it came to New Mexico, though, the governor’s staff said no one from the state would meet with him because they didn’t get a formal invitation.  A formal invitation? They were kidding, right?

Nope.  No one from the administration met Beardman, so he was stuck with Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry on Sunday morning.

Why would losing the Southwest Chief be such a big deal?

First, something like 350,000 people take the Southwest Chief every year, it employs about 350 people in the state and has a long, long history here.

It also generates about $70 million a year in revenue for businesses and the state.

Why, for the tune of $4 million would New Mexico risk losing the route through Raton and Las Vegas, both of which are seriously challenged economically, and then Albuquerque which isn’t in such great shakes itself?

The Valencia County Commission says they would like to see the historic route changed and instead of it running south through the state to Albuquerque, run it from Amarillo through Clovis and then to Belen before it continues west to California.  That would bypass Albuquerque entirely.

In the same breath, Valencia County Manager Jeff Condrey told KRQE TV “This is a federal government problem. It isn’t a state problem and this route shouldn’t be subsidized by the state taxpayers.”

While it may be true that it is a federal government problem, which is really our money already, the impact of losing the route would be a heavy hit. 

Maybe the state wouldn’t lose much if it took the more southern route, but it would have a serious effect on Raton, Las Vegas and Albuquerque.  Remember, they are really in the financial doldrums.

Beardman says he would really like to see New Mexico pony up some money this fall for repairs.  But, since the Legislature doesn’t meet again until next year, he shouldn’t hold his breath.

Regardless of who occupies the fourth floor of the Roundhouse next year, this is an issue that shouldn’t be put on the back burner.  $4 million is a lot of money, but in the scheme of trying to hold and even better the economy, it really isn’t much.

And, why does it require a formal invitation for high state officials to meet with a corporate executive who is trying to keep employees in the state.
Would the governor and others require a formal invitation for the CEO of Intel?  Or Elon Musk from Tesla?  We doubt it.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please let me know atmark.bentley76@gmail.com.

Osos get Win over Train Robbers with Three Home Runs

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

With the help of a home runs by Cie Arell and CJ Epperson the Osos took an early lead and never looked back as they went up 4-0 over the Train Robbers in the first inning Friday evening at Gabriele Field. The Osos went on to win the game 10-6. 

 Kellen Quintana won his 6th game of the season allowing only six runs in seven innings while striking out six batters and no walks. The losing pitcher Eric Cordova allowed 10 runs in six innings and only struck out four batters while walking two.

The Osos also had to rework the roster a bit as Chris Williams and Justin Pearson were traded up and Aaron Ortiz and Evan Richard were on the bench with injuries according to coach Ray Hancock.
