Bull riding’s best will be part of Xtreme Bulls

By Ted Harbin The Lea County Fair and Rodeo has become known as a place that draws the very best contestants in ProRodeo. It’s about to get even better. Forty of the top bull riders in the country will take part in the inaugural Lea County Xtreme Bulls, set for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, at Jake McClure Arena. Money earned in Lovington that night will count toward the Xtreme Bulls standings and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association’s bull riding world standings and a chance to qualify for the 2012 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. “I think it’s a good thing that Lovington’s having an Xtreme Bulls, because last year with just the rodeo pen, it was a good rodeo and an important rodeo because it was part of the tour,” said Jacob O’Mara, a 2011 NFR qualifier from Prairieville, La. “What a better way to make it even bigger than to throw an Xtreme Bulls in there.

OPEN TO THE WORLD – JOIN THE FUN!

Become a pass holder at our Championship Course

By Ted Harbin Carr Pro Rodeo Mercedes Benz knows what it takes to manufacture some of the world’s greatest automobiles. Pete Carr knows that the manufacturing is much different, but he’s got a pretty good idea what it takes to produce the world’s greatest animal athletes. That’s why the Carr Pro Rodeo breeding program is such a big deal and while fans in Lovington will get to see its rewards during the Lea County Fair and Rodeo, set for Wednesday, Aug. 8-Saturday, Aug. 11, at Jake McClure Arena. The foundation is on the Carr Pro Rodeo ranch southeast of Athens in east Texas. It’s where bucking horses and bulls are pampered and where trees align pastureland to provide shade and cover. It’s where established athletes are matched to create the next generation of stars. “We definitely take care of the animals,” said Carr, owner of the Dallas-based livestock firm. “Jeff Collins is our ranch manager, and he takes care of everything as if it were his own. That means a lot. We know we can trust everything he does.” From the right feed to the acres of grassland, the ranch is a great place for great animal athletes. Right now, mares that have performed at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo – from River Boat Annie to Black Coffee – are providing the TLC to their weeks old colts, fathered by NFR bucker Korczak. Yes, it’s more than 500 miles from Lovington to the Carr ranch, but the fans who pack the Jake McClure Arena get to see the result of great breeding when they watch the animals in action. For instance, River Boat Annie was

named the reserve world champion bareback horse in 2007 and has been to the NFR every year since. She has three colts that are being prepared for their trips to Las Vegas. “She’s got a 3-year-old colt that we just bucked with a dummy,” Collins said about one of the first arena experiences for young horses. The device is controlled by a remote control that, when clicked, releases a lock on the dummy so it feels as though the dummy is bucked off. In order to give the young buckers confidence, Collins hits the remote trigger at three seconds. “When River Boat’s colt bucked, it was so cool and so electric that it took everything I had to push that button,” Collins said. “You hope to see that kind of action every time that horse bucks.” That’s what Carr is hoping and why he’s invested into the breeding program as much as he has. Korczak bucked at the NFR in both bareback riding and bronc riding, which makes him a valuable portion of the breeding program. The paint horse’s genetics flow quite easily among many of the colts on the ranch. “I’m excited by what we’re seeing as far as our breeding program,” Carr said. “Over the years, I’ve gone out and acquired great animals, both horses and bulls. I want to produce great rodeos, entertaining rodeos. To do that, you have to have the best contestants. To get the best contestants, you have to have good livestock. “I’m happy that our breeding program is contributing to that.” The foundation for a great rodeo lies on an east Texas ranch, but the benefits are found in Lovington.

ROSWELL: Did you know? International Law Enforcement Academy, also known as ILEA-Roswell, is an academy run by the United States federal government to train law enforcement officers from around the world in the latest law enforcement techniques. Van C. Smith, a businessman from Omaha, Nebraska, and his partner, Aaron Wilburn, constructed two adobe buildings in 1869 that began what is now Roswell. The two buildings became the settlement’s general store, post office, and sleeping quarters for paying guests. In 1871, Smith filed a claim with the federal government for the land around the buildings, and on Aug. 20, 1873,

he became the town’s first postmaster. Van C. Smith was the son of Roswell Smith, a prominent lawyer in Lafayette, Indiana, and Annie Ellsworth, daughter of U.S. Patent Commissioner Henry Leavitt Ellsworth. He called the town Roswell, after his father’s first name. In 2002, Roswell was named one of the All-American cities. The All-America City Award is given by the National Civic League annually to ten cities in the U.S. Famous people from Roswell: Demi Moore, actress; John Denver, folk singer; Nancy Lopez, LPGA golfer Roswell is home to Leprino Foods, one of the world’s largest mozzarella factories.

NEW MEXICO: Did you know? Lakes and Rivers make up only .002 percent of the state’s total surface area. The lowest water-to-land ratio of all 50 states. Most of New Mexico’s lakes are man-made reservoirs. A dam on the Rio Grande formed the Elephant Butte Reservoir the state’s largest lake. White Sands National Monument is a desert, not of sand, but of gleaming white gypsum crystals. One-quarter of New Mexico is forested, and the state has seven National Forests (including the Nation’s largest, the 3.3 million acre Gila National Forest which includes the Gila Wilderness.) New Mexico’s State Constitution officially states that New Mexico is a bilingual State, and one out of three families in New Mexico speak Spanish at home. One out of four workers in New Mexico work directly for the Federal Government. State and local governments are also major employers. New Mexico has far more sheep and cattle than people. There are only about 12 people per square mile. Since New Mexico’s climate is so dry, 3/4 of the roads are left unpaved. The roads don’t wash away. Roswell, the state’s fourth largest city, was founded in 1869 when a professional gambler established a lone store on the cattle trail.

Moon Rocks can be found at the International Space Hall of Fame, located in Alamogordo. Tens of thousands of Mexican free-tail bats live in the Carlsbad Caverns. The largest chamber of Carlsbad Caverns is more than 10 football fields long and about 22 stories high. New Mexico was named by 16th century Spanish explorers who hoped to find gold and wealth equal to Mexico’s Aztec treasures. On the same desert grounds where today’s space age missiles are tested, 10,000-year-old arrowheads have been found. New Mexican history has ranged from arrows to atoms and has embraced Indian, Spanish and Anglo cultures. Few states can claim such a distinctive past.

This is another hidden jewel, a facility and garden that celebrates both the history of wildfire prevention efforts and the diverse fauna that grow in the Lincoln National Forest. It’s also eyeopening to see what the Forest Service has learned about fighting wildfires, and how so much of this knowledge could have been used to prevent the recent devastation of the Little Bear Fire – had

the Forest Service been allowed to do its job. We’ve decided to bypass Carrizozo and the Three Rivers Petroglyph site on the west side of Sierra Blanca, because we’re tired and really want to get home. It’s only been three days, but it feels like two weeks. We’ve traveled almost 600 miles and done some intense sightseeing in those three days. We could make the same trip three or four times and experience something different each time.

The Founding of ENMU-Ruidoso

By Dr. Cynthia Orozco ENMU-Ruidoso staff As early as the 1940’s, college classes were held in Ruidoso. State and private institutions from across the country looked to the area to establish campuses here. A county-wide survey was conducted in 1983 by Eastern New Mexico University. The results confirmed that the residents of the county wanted a local college that would offer both academic classes and vocational training. A more specific survey aimed at the Ruidoso area was conducted in 1989. Several local organizations including the Ruidoso Board of Education, Ruidoso Rotary Club and local ENMU alumni, secured a commitment from ENMU in Portales to establish an off-campus center in Ruidoso. Eastern was eager and understood the political and economic intricacies of expansion, having established other campuses in Lovington, Roswell and Clovis. Initial funding was secured through the legislature with assistance from State Representative John Underwood. The attention on funding shifted to hiring someone to take the reins and make the college a reality. The candidate would need to be cognizant of the unique challenges of starting a college from scratch, in a rural community, by out-of-state tourists, discretionary income and defined through its unique geography and cultural diversity. Despite the obstacles, village leaders felt that, with the right leadership, the students would come. Enter Dr. Jim Miller, Jr. A former superintendent of Carrizozo schools was hired; moved back to the area, rolled up his sleeves and went to work in July 1991. Rather than purchasing land and constructing a new building, Dr. Miller rented an existing building, a part of Coronado Center located at 1400 Sudderth Drive. Two hundred and eighty three students registered for the first semester, and classes were held at night at various locations including Ruidoso High School and the Coronado Center. Despite his commitment to in-fill, a permanent campus was sorely needed, and, once again, Dr. Miller rolled up his sleeves. The Dale Walthall family offered to donate their former True-Value hardware store at 709 Mechem Drive in August 1994. In late December 1995, ENMU-Ruidoso moved to its new loca-

dr. Jim Miller, Jr. tion. The centralized and open floor plan allowed for expansion that Dr. Miller parceled out in manageable portions and included offices, a library and a bookstore. Additional computers were donated to the Mescalero tribal library and senior citizen centers throughout the county for use by ENMU-Ruidoso college students. Despite the newly-acquired location in Ruidoso, Dr. Miller made sure that ENMU-Ruidoso remained a presence in the rest of the county. Classes continued after hours in Capitan, Carrizozo, Corona, Hondo and Mescalero. A GED program was set up a year later. Both of these programs allowed those who were not able to complete their high school education to obtain a high school equivalency diploma and attend college. More than one half of area GED graduates go on to college. Hundreds of local residents are now pursuing better jobs with a whole new attitude towards education. The tenacity in the face of overwhelming odds exemplifies Dr. Miller’s own attitude towards life. Today he is still deeply involved in the community. He organizes the annual renewable energy conference held each April and is forming a consortium of private and government organizations to take advantage of biomass potential in Lincoln and Otero counties. He still teaches for ENMU-Ruidoso Community Education. Even in retirement, Dr. Miller, sleeves rolled up, is ready to face new challenges while making Ruidoso the better for his vision and efforts.

A healthy lunch box

Eating a healthy lunch is easier when we can pack it ourselves to make sure we enjoy the things in it. Here are several tasty suggestions:

Beverages Lemonade - juice of ½ a lemon, 2 cups of water and honey to taste Limeade - Juice of ½ a lime,2 cups of water and honey to taste. Iced Tea - whether you choose to boil your tea on the stove or choose to do it the old fashioned way by using the rays of the sun, you can sweeten your tea with honey for a low calorie beverage that is healthier than any juice available on our grocery shelves. Citrus cucumber water - Stick a few slices of cucumber and lime or orange for a flavorful way to get some water in the body. Snacks Homemade popcorn - follow directions on the package replacing cooking oil with olive oil; you can also skip the calories and fat of butter by using garlic powder and sea salt to season. You can make a large quantity to last all week, by storing unbuttered popcorn in a plastic bag once it has cooled to room temperature. Trail mix - add 1 cup peanuts, 1 cup peeled pumpkin seeds, 1 cup almonds, 1 raisins or 1 cup M&M’s. Mix in a medium size bowl and separate into individual portions (makes 5 one cup servings) Nuts - almonds, peanuts, cashews are an excellent snack to include in any lunch and are an excellent source

of protein. Fruit - enjoy it just the way it is, or mix it up to create a fruit salad to suit your taste buds. Veggies - crunchy carrot and celery sticks are a favorite. You can add a small container of hummus to dip your carrots and celery in or pack some peanut butter and raisins to turn celery sticks into the classic “ants on a log.” Sandwiches Choose a healthy whole wheat bread and make sure corn syrup is not listed in the ingredients. When choosing meats, white meats such as tuna, turkey and sliced chicken breast are best. Choosing low fat cheese is also a great idea. Add fresh veggies if you can, to add a few vitamins to an already enjoyed meal. Tomatoes and spinach make a great addition to a turkey or tuna sandwich. You can also flavor up a PB and J by adding apples or bananas.
