Intrepid Potash launches solution mining project CHAVES Employing more than 500 people in the Carlsbad area, Intrepid Potash supplies American agriculture with an essential crop nutrient produced in the United States. Intrepid is the only western world producer created and dedicated solely to potassiumrelated products. Intrepid supplies 1.5 percent of global demand and 9.4 percent of U.S. demand. Intrepid is the largest producer of muriate of potash (‘‘potassium chloride’’ or ‘‘potash’’) in the United States and is dedicated to the production and marketing of potash and langbeinite (‘‘sulfate of potash magnesia’’), another mineral containing potassium that is produced from langbeinite ore. Potassium is one of the three primary nutrients essential to plant formation and growth. Potash is a critical fertilizer, providing one of

The project will generate the state and federal government more that $90 million in royalties and approximately $130 million in capital construction expenditures. Intrepid will also hire approximately 40 new permanent employees and contract approximately 200 temporary construction workers. The solution mine is located about 22 miles east of the city. Solution mining is a process where salt-saturated brine is injected underground to dissolve and recover potash in existing idle mine workings. Construction of the facilities is proposed to be completed in less than 2 years.

Volunteers come together; walk in the Relay For Life This weekend, hundreds of volunteers in Lincoln and Otero counties will walk in the Relay For Life, a life-changing event that helps communities across the globe celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. In Alamogordo, 433 participants and 33 teams are registered with $43,234 raised so far. The Otero County event will be held June 16, 5 p.m. at Griggs Field in Alamogordo. For info: scentsorygourmet@live.com or

www.relayforlife.org In Ruidoso, 110 Participants and 8 Teams have registered with $7,125 raised so far. The event will be held June 15 at All American Park, 6 p.m.in Ruidoso Downs. For info: www.relayforlife.org Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length. Participants do not have to walk all night, but each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. The Relay starts with a Survivors Lap – an inspirational time when survivors are invited to circle the track together and help everyone celebrate the victories achieved over cancer. Participants also recognize and celebrate caregivers at Relay For Life. These individuals give their time, love, and support to friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers who face cancer. After dark, participants honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participants often walk a lap in silence Last, there is a Fight Back Ceremony, where participants make a personal commitment to save lives by taking up the fight against cancer. That personal commitment may be to do something as simple as getting a screening test, quitting smoking, or talking to elected officials about cancer. By

taking action, people are personally taking steps to save lives and fight back against a disease that takes too much. One person can make a difference. Nowhere is that more evident than with the story of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, which began in Tacoma, Washington. In the mid-1980s, Dr. Gordy Klatt, a Tacoma colorectal surgeon, wanted to enhance the income of his local American Cancer Society office and to show support for all of his patients who had battled cancer. He decided to personally raise money for the fight by doing something he enjoyed – running marathons. In May 1985, Dr. Klatt spent a grueling 24 hours circling the track at Baker Stadium at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma. He ran for more than 83 miles. That first year, nearly 300 of Dr. Klatt’s friends, family, and pa-

Throughout the night, friends donated $25 to run or walk with Dr. Klatt for 30 minutes. His efforts raised $27,000 to fight cancer. While circling the track those 24 hours, Dr. Klatt thought about how others could take part in his mission to fight cancer. He envisioned a 24-hour team relay event that could raise more money to fight cancer. Over the next few months, he pulled together a small committee to plan the first team relay event, known

as the City of Destiny Classic 24-Hour Run Against Cancer. In 1986, with the help of Pat Flynn – now known as the “Mother of Relay” – 19 teams took part in the first team Relay event on the track at the historic Stadium Bowl and raised $33,000. An indescribable spirit prevailed at the track and in the tents that dotted the infield.

It’s my party and I’ll change the world if I want to With her fifth birthday coming up, Winnie Keller saw her blessings. Parents from her circle of friends had decided to just give money as gifts, given the financial difficulties of the times. At the same time, a Cavegirl basketball player named Shakiri Montoya was in the middle of chemo in Lubbock with leukemia. Shakiri’s struggle had become well known in Winnie’s household, the unfairness of it all for a child hit Winnie especially hard, because Shakiri was one of her beloved Cavegirl basketball players. Winnie decided to give her birthday money to Shakiri, so that her mommy could be with her in Lubbock because “having my mommy with me would make everything better.” On her birthday, Winnie and her friends raised close

to $700 and gave it to Shakiri’s mom so that she could cover travel expenses to be with her daughter. Winnie got to know Shakiri well during her short visits home between treatments, the last of which was about a month before Shakiri passed away in December of 2009. The gift of getting to know Shakiri and be a part of her life was better than any toy she wanted. Greater still was the excitement of being obedient to what God put in her heart. Winnie was excited to share this feeling with all kids, and IT’S MY PARTY! inc. was born. If your child would like to make their next party an It’s my Party, Inc., or to donate or for more information: mercedesgkeller@gmail.com; 575302-9511; www.itsmypartyinc.com.

New Dave’s in Cloudroft – rebuilding after fire By Sue Hutchison Reporter suehutch@valornet.com Cloudcroft’s Mayor Dave Venable and son, Chuck are busy these days. Dave’s Café recently reopened its doors for business. On December 10, 2010 fire ravaged through Pine Stump Mall which housed the restaurant, leaving behind burned timbers and memories. Reopening in April, the new place is a popular destination once again. “There was a day or two of disbelief and then grieving,” says Chuck, who still remembers the night of the fire. Firefighters arrested the flames before the entire west side of Burro Street went up in flames. Dave’s Café was one of the unfortunate casualties of the fire, along with the other shops under the same roof: Sister’s Jewelry, Yeti’s T-Shirts, Tree-rific Woodworking, and Hank’s Hair Salon/Barber Shop. Next door, The Copper Butterfly also burned in the fire. Dave’s Café (or New Dave’s, as the locals call it) reopened to an eager crowd. Mayor Dave cleaned tables repeatedly while locals and tourists alike became reacquainted with the place. The builders, at the Venable’s insistence, incorporated several of the old, scarred timbers from the original structure, giving the entrance a rather nostalgic feeling. “It took 14 months to rebuild.” Chuck took pains to keep as much of the staff and former menu as he could, and added new staff members to the mix. Chuck’s equally comfortable both behind the kitchen counter and out front with guests. Boasting “New Dave’s Café: old Dave’s Café prices,” the menu offers something for everyone. The Café anchors the new Pine Stump Mall which additionally offers retail spaces to local entrepreneurs. Yeti’s is back along with a new shop named Jewelry Tree, which also houses Build/Stuff-a-bear. Additional retail space remains to be leased. Added into the Venable family mix is a new coffee destination in the Cloudcroft business district named Higher Grounds. Located on Burro Street in the lower

level of the Cloudcroft Hotel building, the coffee shop has been open for a few months and offers specialty drinks in addition to pastries and snacks. Ice cream is about to be added to the frappe, espresso and latte menu. There were a few rough weeks at the beginning according to Chuck, but things have ironed out and Higher Grounds is a secure presence downtown. Just two of the new businesses in Cloudcroft, Dave’s Café and Higher Grounds are bustling businesses. The local Chamber of Commerce recently listed several new businesses including Cut to a T Hair Salon, Cloud Café, a Laundromat, Riding Stables, Peak Fitness and Mountain Monster. With the population hovering around 780, the town’s business district is strong.

Never leave children unattended in vehicles NM Dept of Health

The New Mexico Department of Health (DOH) is reminding people to take precautions with the summer heat and never leave children unattended in vehicles. Temperatures inside vehicles can become extreme quickly and put children at risk for heat stroke or even death. “If you see a child alone in a car and you cannot find the parents or caregivers, and the doors are locked, call 911 immediately to help get them out,” said Cabinet Secretary of Health, Dr. Catherine Torres. “Parents should also teach children not to play in vehicles. Car keys and remote openers should never be left within reach of children.” The warning signs of heat exhaustion include heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, tiredness, weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea or vomiting and fainting. Dehydration and over exposure to the sun can cause heatstroke, a potentially lifethreatening illness that causes the body’s normal mechanisms for dealing with heat stress, such as sweating and temperature control, to shut down. The main sign of heatstroke is an elevated body temperature greater than 104 degrees and changes in mental status ranging from personality changes to confusion. If you suspect heatstroke in someone, move the person out of the sun and into a shady or air-conditioned space, cool the person by covering him or her with damp sheets or by spraying with cool water, direct air onto the person with a fan or newspaper, have the person drink cool water if they are able and dial 911 immediately. People at greatest risk of heat-related illness include the elderly, the very young, and people with chronic diseases. People in these groups should be monitored to make sure they are not suffering from heat-related illness. Healthy people can also become ill if they participate in strenuous physical activity during hot weather conditions. The DOH advises that pets should also never be left inside a car unattended. Leaving the widows cracked with a bowl of water will not be enough to cool your pet quickly when temperatures are extreme. To prevent heat-related illnesses the DOH recommends the following: • Find a cool area in your area or in your home • Drink plenty of water or other cool beverages; avoid sugary or carbonated drinks and drinks that contain alcohol • Take a cool shower, bath or sponge bath with cool water • Wear light, loose fitting clothing such as cotton • Monitor your physical condition and that of your family for signs or symptoms of heat illness • If possible, remain indoors during the hottest time of day Between 2006 and 2010, there were 14 heat related deaths and 43 heat-related hospitalizations in New Mexico. More than half of the hospitalizations were adults 65 years of age and older. More information on heat-related illness can be found on the DOH website at www.nmhealth.org.
