Ruidoso Flooding….

Rains were prayed for to help stop the wildfires but the runoff is causing even more damage to an already compromised town adding insult to injury. Here is just one video of the damage and another here. Tough summer for our neighbors in Lincoln County. More videos of the flooding. Praying they get some relief.

City Services Closed for July 4th….

Most City of Las Cruces offices and facilities will be closed on Thursday, July 4. Police, fire, and other emergency services will operate as usual. Which services will be open/closed? More Info

Your Pets and July the 4th…

Get your pets microchip checked to make sure your contact information is up to date. Get a new dog tag with your contact info and the dogs name. Keep your pets inside so they won’t get loose and run away. Happy 4th of July. Enjoy!
