ENMU-Ruidoso’s Juanita Garcia

Waking up one morning, Juanita Garcia decided to make a change. A single mother of four girls earning minimum wage in Alamogordo, Garcia wanted something more for herself. She moved to Capitan and went back to college at ENMU-Ruidoso. At age 35, she enrolled in her first college courses, taking a full load. At other colleges, Garcia might have been unusual, but non-traditional students have always filled the halls of ENMU-Ruidoso and women often outnumber male students. Some students supplement an existing education, some are changing careers and others, like Garcia, are looking to start over. Garcia doggedly pursued her degree, graduating with an Associate of Arts degree in general studies. She then went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in university studies through ENMU Portales. Not content to rest on her laurels and having a secret dream of teaching, Garcia went on to earn a Master’s degree in education, a little more than 10 years from when she started taking college classes. Like many non-traditional ENMURuidoso students, Garcia worked while she attended classes. The college offers many opportunities to work in-house, and Garcia took advantage of the work study program to earn money while in school. Funded by state or federal monies, several work study positions are available each semester. Most of the positions are on-campus and have hourly limits to ensure that students have time to study. Staff members are careful not to overload students while recognizing that the skills learned in the offices of ENMU-Ruidoso are often applicable to jobs students may have in the future. While the wages helped to put food on the table, when a position at the New Mexico Workforce Connection opened up just across the parking lot from the campus, Garcia jumped at the chance. ENMU-Ruidoso is the fiscal agent/operator for the New Mexico Workforce Connection, and the two institutions work closely to provide employment assistance to area citizens. Garcia’s firsthand knowledge of the difficulties in finding a living wage job while raising children in Lincoln County allowed her to empathize with many of the underand unemployed clients. Still, Garcia yearned to work with students. Increased enrollment demanded more advisors, and Garcia applied for and was hired as head of Student Ser-

vices in October 2007. Much of her job today revolves around students as she makes sure degree plans are filed and followed and options are fully explained. State agencies and the legislature determine which classes are transferable and how new programs are being offered in institutions across New Mexico. Knowing how classes at ENMU-Ruidoso fit into four year universities and colleges is part of Garcia’s job. Knowing how these classes may fit into an uncertain job market is part of her past. Understanding how a student feels in the face of so much information in such an alien world is part of her passion. Recently, Garcia decided to take her passion into the classroom. As a university studies instructor, she teaches students how to succeed now that they are enrolled in college. The lessons learned as a student, coupled with her experience in workforce training and in real-life make Garcia a valuable resource and personality at ENMU-Ruidoso. Like many ENMU-Ruidoso students, Garcia is a resident of Capitan. After Ruidoso, Capitan represents the second largest community of students. Credit classes have been offered there and dual credit classes are popular at Capitan High School. Available in all Lincoln County high schools, dual credit classes allow qualified juniors and seniors to take classes that count towards both high school and college. Academic and career-track offerings such as chemistry, English, history, hospitality management, math and welding mean that students are able to earn credits prior to their first year of college. In Capitan, it is possible for a motivated student to complete the college’s certified nursing assistant program while still in high school. Other high schools are developing similar programs. Rebecca Gonzales and Devonna James, who work with Juanita Garcia in Student Services, travel extensively to county high schools, including Capitan, publicizing the program and encouraging students to take advantage of these programs. Financial aid in the form of New Mexico State Lottery and ENMURuidoso scholarships are available to graduating seniors. Some of these funding opportunities are time sensitive. Garcia understands the immediacy. As she tells anyone who will listen: “Don’t wait until you’re 35 like I did. Your future is now and we’re here to help.”

Hunting seasons open across NM

Thousands of hunters will head for the hills and fields of New Mexico on Saturday, the opening day of seasons for deer, elk, squirrels, doves, grouse and band-tailed pigeons. Complete information about the seasons is available in the Small-game and Waterfowl Rules & Information booklet, now available on the Department of Game and Fish website, www. September seasons for deer and elk are for hunters using bows and arrows who were successful in the public-land license drawings or have authorization to hunt on private land. Some hunting seasons for pronghorn antelope open Sept. 8. Most deer and elk seasons for hunters using muzzleloaders and highpowered rifles are scheduled in October and November. The Department of Game and Fish urges all hunters to stress safety in the field, especially during archery seasons when hunters commonly are dressed in camouflage. Hikers, bikers and others using the back country during hunting


seasons are encouraged to wear bright clothing so they are easily visible to hunters. More than 28,000 deer hunters and 32,000 elk hunters will be in the field from September through December this year. As many as 25,000 hunters are expected to try for small game, upland and migratory birds and waterfowl. Some hunters may encounter forest or trail closures this year due to wildfires that hit the southwestern and southeastern portions of the state. Closures may affect small areas of various Game Management Units, and hunters are encouraged to contact the Gila National Forest, gila/home; or the Lincoln National Forest,, for more information about fire closures. For more information about New Mexico’s hunting opportunities and rules, visit and look for links to the rules and information booklets at the bottom of the home page. To speak with a Department representative, call 505-476-8000.

By April Brunson The Worship Center in Alamogordo is a church dedicated to being an accepting, Christ-centered community of faith that creatively communicates grace and truth. Lead Pastor David Crispin and his wife Kathy, along with his staff and a host of volunteers, work diligently every week to provide environments for all ages to further their walk with God. The Worship Center offers three weekend worship services – Saturdays at 5:30 p.m. and Sundays at 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. While adults and parents are in their services, babies through pre-K can enjoy Waumba Land, or Kindergarten through 5th grade students can participate in FUEL Service – environments specifically designed for kids where they sing songs, play games, and most importantly learn how much God loves them and wants to be a part of their life. Older students meet on Sunday nights at 5:30 p.m. for grades 6th through 8th for SPIN Service, and grades 9th through 12th meet at 7 p.m. for REVO Service. Both of these services have a live band for worship, participate in games and challenges, and receive dynamic teaching from Pastor Chris Weiss. The center also has Mpact Girls Ministries and Royal Rangers for Boys for students Kindergarten through 12th grade on Wednesday nights at 6:45 p.m. These mentorship environments are not just about earning badges and pins by completing different projects and challenges, but these students learn how to make God-honoring choices by knowing God’s truth. One of the things worship center

staff strongly believe in is community, which is why the center has community groups (or some refer to them as small groups or cell groups) where a group of 10 to 12 people meet at a home or coffee shop on a regular basis to fellowship, study the Bible, pray and simply do life together. On Sept. 22 and 23, the worship center is kicking off a huge five-week sermon series titled, “30 days to live.” The program will be exploring the idea of what a person’s life would look like if they only had 30 days to live, taking Jesus’ example of focus, priorities, and passion. In addition to the vital weekend teaching participants will receive from three of the pastors to live urgently, focus fully, love completely, serve humbly, and leave boldly; plus 30 new “experience” groups. Organizers don’t want participants to simply be a part of a community group but want them to experience the group. Whether participants want to have a lot of different people in their group or just simply want to grab a couple of coworkers over lunch and talk about what it would be like to only have 30 days to live, a DVD and study guide for anyone to pick up and have a group with – no leadership training required. People can take the five weekly challenges and use them to make their life and the lives of those around them even better for God. Everyone is invited to join any weekend, but especially for the brand new series coming up in September. For more information: www. or on Facebook at

Pastoring from a fifth wheel –

Evangelist Steve Cody

Steve Cody was raised on a large cattle ranch in northeastern Oklahoma. Before surrendering to the ministry in the 1970’s, he was executive vice president of one of the largest oil field pumping equipment manufacturers in the United States. He and his wife Mary met while in high school, married in 1960, and have two children, 10 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. He was saved in vacation Bible school, baptized, licensed and ordained in to the ministry at First Baptist Church of Nowata, Okla.

He also is a member of the National Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists as well as the Oklahoma Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists. Steve was pastor of First Baptist Church of Lenapah, Okla. where he stayed for more than 10 years. In his time there, the church started a Cowboy Camp meeting in 1984. As one person said, “Steve Cody was doing Cowboy Church before Cowboy Church was cool.” Through that work, he started his evangelist ministry with The Ranchmen’s Camp meetings of the

Southwest. He later became general manager and was president of that organization for 10 years. In that time several camp meetings were established, and camps were held each year in Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico. He and Mary still conduct 20-25 tent meetings each year, and hold another 20-25 church revivals, Power Point Bible conferences and other meetings in camps, churches, prisons, and churches throughout the United States and Mexico. Steve is author of the book, “Oh Them Eat’n Meet’ns,” which shares about his work as a modern-day circuit-riding preacher. He and his wife Mary, travel more than 40,000 miles each year in a fifth wheel trailer. The event will be held in the Boot Hill RV Resort enclosed pavilion Thursday, Sept. 6 and Friday, Sept. 7. A free meal will be provided at 6 p.m., music will start at 7, and a biblical Power Point message will be given following that. There is no charge for the event.

Christian group, Fourtwelve, who will be at the Boot Hill RV Resort between Alamogordo and Tularosa Saturday, Sept. 8 at 7 p.m. For the guys who make up the Dallas/Fort Worth based Christian music group, fourtwelve – Brian White, Jeremy McKissack, and Andrew Lowe – leading audiences in His praise, and serving the community and the world in the name of Christ is the very essence, purpose and passion of Fourtwelve’s music. Though this group has deep and diverse roots in a variety of musical styles, Fourtwelve’s sound falls into a category all its own. With tight-knit harmonies and unique vocal arrangements, Fourtwelve’s music continues to bring audiences to a place of hope. Being more than just music, Fourtwelve continues to move outside the norm to present the gospel message to all audiences. When not on stage, Fourtwelve

extends their work through their own foundation, Embrace. Embrace allows them to be a part of various mission programs, community events and charitable organizations. Those who know Fourtwelve know that this group’s desire is to lead in worship through music with the hope that their ministry work on and off stage will continue to direct people to Christ. For information, call the Boot Hill RV Resort at 575-439-6224.

Continued from pg. 8 Paul and Christy have been featured on WTKK television in Washington, D.C., KRPV television in Roswell and a number of local radio programs. They have also appeared on the Afterglow program at the Southern Baptist Convention and the main program of the Texas Evangelism Conference. In addition to this, they have sung at the Southern Baptists of Texas Empower Conference, as well as other state and associational meetings. The Newberrys make their home base in Arlington, Texas where they are members at Fielder Road Baptist Church. While on the road an average of 40 weeks a year, they live in a 37 ft. 5th wheel travel trailer.

Enhanced security protects state treasures One of the most important jobs that museum staff has is that of artifact preservation. At facilities like the New Mexico Museum of Space History, that is sometimes a tall order. “Our artifact collection ranges from pictures and papers to rocket engines and full size spacecraft. Everyone who has been to the museum realizes how important it is, for instance, to protect our moonrock. Most don’t realize that it’s equally as important to protect and preserve our larger artifacts like the Little Joe Rocket or the Sonic Wind One, which sit outside in our rocket park,” said Museum Executive Director Chris Orwoll. As part of a new museum security plan, installation of a new “launch gantry orange” security gate on Highway 2001 is anticipated to begin on Tuesday, Sept. 4. “As our security plan begins to take shape in the form of the gate on the road to the museum and anticipated security cameras and other measures inside the facility, it’s important to remember that not only are we protecting the state treasures that we have on campus, we are also helping to ensure greater safety for the public,” said Orwoll. “We chose “launch gantry orange” for the gate’s color because it’s easy to see and it’s very appropriate for a space museum,” he added. After the gate is installed, the campus of the museum will be closed to the public beginning at 5 p.m. every night. Special arrangements for access to the grounds after closing can be made through the museum’s public relations office. Showtimes at the Clyde W. Tombaugh IMAX Dome Theater will also change in conjunction with the new

security plan in order to make a smooth transition for the public and museum staff. The first showing at the theater will be at 10 a.m. and the last showing will be at 4 p.m. This will allow theater patrons and staff members to leave the grounds prior to 5 p.m. when the gate will close. “Air Racers” will show at 10 a.m., 12 noon and 3 p.m. “Air Racers” is the first-ever IMAX theatre film devoted to the fastest race in the world: the legendary Reno National Championship Air Races. “Air Racers” takes audiences into Nevada’s Valley of Speed to experience the intensity and high-speed thrills of a sports event like no other combined with spectacular air show entertainment. “Hubble” will show at 11 a.m., 2 and 4 p.m. Hubble’s awe-inspiring images, from the heart of the Orion Nebula and our Milky Way to the edge of the observable universe, offer an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope’s legacy. A Spanish language version of “Hubble” is available for advance group bookings. The multi-media presentation “9 Planets and Counting” will show at 1 p.m. on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. “Nine Planets and Counting” presents the continuing debate over exactly how many planets our solar system has. The show includes a tour of the solar system utilizing spectacular photographs and exciting new discoveries beyond Pluto. Showtimes and prices are subject to change without notice. The above schedule continues through Sept. 30. For more information, call 575-437-2840, 1-877-3336589 or visit
