Steve Westenhofer Chief Executive Officer Mimbres Memorial Hospital & Nursing Home Steve Westenhofer has been CEO of Mimbres Memorial Hospital & Nursing Home in Deming for four years. He administers a campus with multiple medical resources, highly ttrained i d physicians h i i and d services i th thatt exceed d national ti l quality lit bbenchmarks h k iin severall areas. H He also administers the affiliated Mimbres Professional Building. [See page 15.] “I’ve always loved working in hospitals because of the nature of the work,” he says. “You’re working with people who have the same motivation you do – providing care, comfort, and compassion for our community.” He adds that the Deming community is very supportive of the medical profession. Steve has long since “converted to small town living”, he says, touting “the positives of a small community: safety and the more relaxed pace of life.” Plus, in Deming, he notes, the weather is fantastic, there’s immediate access to outdoor activities and it’s a great location to get to other areas for a long weekend – Tucson, say, or Silver City. Steve earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky and a master’s degree in counseling psychology from Spalding University, also in Louisville. He also has a graduate certificate in health care administration from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.

Ken Leupold Director, WNMU Deming Campus The son of teachers, Ken Leupold, BSE, MA, has spent his life in the classroom and that’s fine with him. “Education may be the most important job of all, since it is one of the few things that can completely change a person’s life for the better,” he says. Leupold is the director of the Deming branch of Western New Mexico University. He keeps his hand in by teaching an English course each year. His credentials are impeccable: a BS in education from NMSU, and an MA from Middlebury College in Vermont, plus licensure in several subspecialties. Leupold grew up in Deming and taught here for 14 years. He then moved to Florida, where he had an expansive 10 ½ years, teaching English and journalism and coaching volleyball and basketball. Weather brought him home. “When we had three hurricanes in a period of 8 weeks, we decided that New Mexico was a much safer place,” he says. “I know the town and I know the people. I like small towns and I love the desert.”

Dan Lere Superintendent, Deming Public Schools Deming School h l Superintendent d Dan Lere is in hhis eighth h h month h in the job, but he’s got a grasp of the challenges the district faces. Income disadvantages and language access are the two greatest problems for his 5,300-student school population, Lere, a veteran educator, notes. One hundred percent of the students qualify for reduced or free lunches,” he says. And many students start school monolingual, speaking only Spanish. The battle is to get them bi-lingual and “bi-literate” (reading and writing) in English and Spanish by the end of grade school, Lere said. It’s a battle the district’s 380 teachers fight every day and are winning, he adds. Recruited out of retirement in Pueblo, Colo., Lere identifies with his new community, having spent his childhood and young adulthood in agriculture. “Pueblo and Deming are similar,” he insists. “My land (in Colorado) has almost the exact same plants. When I came in July, it didn’t feel that different, climate-wise. The big difference,” he adds, “is winter.” He’s not missed shoveling snow or driving on ice.

James Williams Golf Pro and High School Golf Coach James Williams has been the PGA professional at Rio Mimbres Country Club for 35 years and golf coach at Deming High School for 17 years. He’s a pretty good teacher, too – in those 17 years his student teams have won seven state championships! “There are two things to know about golf: first, that it’s a game that anyone can play, and second, that it’s so challenging,” he says. “It’s a game that you never master and if you can accept that starting out, you’ll enjoy it a lot more. It’s a game that you can play your whole life; we have players from ages 7 to 90 out here. There are days when I see three generations in the same family—grandfather, father and grandson—playing golf together.” James grew up in Deming and took the pro job after earning a degree in business administration from Eastern New Mexico University. He and his wife Cindy have reared four children in Deming. “Deming’s a good place to live,” he says. What he loves about his job is developing relationships with the people who take lessons from him. “That’s the most rewarding part,” he says, “being able to help them become better at the game of golf.” left: James discusses options with Lynda Duncan.

Glenn Kruger President Deming Performing Arts Glenn Kruger thinks wistfully of the time when the DPAT, DPA PAT PA AT, T, the th Deming Performing Arts Theater, was the home of community theater productions. Now it’s a venue for road shows, which he as DPAT President is responsible for booking. He also runs the website and design. “I hire performers from across the country; we try to do two a month from October 1 through April 30,” he explains. The all-volunteer organization keeps it going, Kruger adds. “There is good camaraderie. A lot of good friendships have evolved out of DPAT.” The shows for Spring 2015 include some real favorites among Deming aficionados: Freddie and Sheila Pelletier, guitarists from Saskatchewan, will be in town for Valentine’s Day, followed by The Mesilla Valley Swing Band on Feb. 21; “Holy Water & Whiskey,” March 14; “Cowboy Way,” April 4, and Jeff Scroggins & Colorado, April 18. “We try to bring in one country-and-western act a month, and one non-country,” Kruger says. It’s been a 10-year gig for him, since he was recruited into the job from the county’s Retired Senior Volunteer Program in 2004. “I’m a retired aircraft mechanic and wastewater treatment plant operator, but I’ve gotten the hang of this show-biz thing,” he says with a chuckle. “There’s a whole slew of stuff to do in Deming, but somehow people can't find it. DPAT has the answer: ‘Wholesome Family Entertainment!’” The Deming Performing Arts Theater is in the renovated Morgan Hall, 109 E. Pine & Gold Streets. Go to

Lyn Orona Visual Artist Life in Deming has been a renaissance for artist Lyn Orona. The longtime silversmith and clay sculptor has branched out into impressionistic Southwest paintings, and she also has become an “activist for the arts,” rather to her own surprise. She got the Deming Public Schools involved in the national Poetry Out Loud program in 2008, which has provided scholarships for some students. Orona also organized a juried art show in October 2014 that paid 30 percent of sales to the Wounded Warrior Project and the DAV homeless vets project. The second annual show, also slated for October, will benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. “It should be even bigger and better,” she says. Orona and her husband Richard, also a silversmith, retired to Deming from California 10 years ago and have shown in regional exhibitions and at the Arts International show in El Paso. “Deming is such a little gem of a place right off the freeway,” she says. “We like to encourage arts here.”

ife is good in Deming, especially for families. This wonderful small town has multiple o opportunities for entertainment, arts and activities that enhance the quality o of life for people of all ages. The Deming-Luna-Mimbres Museum has been called “the Smithsonian of the Southwest,” and is a great place to start learning about this unique corner of America. It is run by volunteers and admission is free (although donations are welcome). Year-round beneficent weather makes hitting the links a pleasure at the municipal Rio Mimbres Golf Course. The 18-hole course is close to downtown and offers a complete pro shop, PGA instruction, a practice green and driving range and even some racquetball courts. PGA Pro James Williams notes that he’s often seen multiple generations of some families out on the course together. [See page 8.] Touring musical artists come to the Deming Performing Arts Theatre from October to April [see page 8]. DPAT President Glenn Kruger is open to suggestions for new bookings. The music is always family-friendly. The Starmax Entertainment Center is a complex where families or romantic dates can find six first-run movies, an outstanding 16-lane bowling center that welcomes bowlers of all ages and skill levels, glow-in-the-dark miniature golf and a video arcade. Above all, there’s a plethora of art, as the 40-year-existence of the Deming Arts Council can attest. “Art is important to everybody,” says Arts Council president Pat Guthrie. Founded in 1975, the Deming Arts Council for 26 years has had its own building, an historic early-20th-century building purchased and donated by benefactress Kit Tramine in 1989. The Arts Council is the only active gallery in a 60-mile radius that changes shows once a month. That’s a lot of dedicated volunteer work scheduling, hanging and manning exhibitions. Upcoming shows will feature Deming schoolchildren’s artwork in March, and, in April, the arts of descendants of Apache warriors who used to roam this region. “The April show is the Fort Sill Apaches Art Exhibition, with artists from California, Louisiana, New Mexico and Oklahoma—four generations of descendants of Mangas Colorado, Victorio, Cochise and Geronimo,” Pat explains. “We’re really excited about it!”

Leon X. Harris, M.D. Family Practice WRITTEN BY SUSIE NOLTE

The “circle of health” is the practice philosoph philosophy of Leon X X. Harris Harris, M M.D., D Family Practice. He believes that each of us is more than a current illness and takes the time to listen, ask questions and explain options so that he and his patients may make care decisions together. He was inspired to become a physician by a family physician that cared for four generations of his own family. “Quality of care is the most important thing I offer to patients” he says. When not caring for patients, he enjoys movies, reading, history and family time. Dr. Harris received his medical degree from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tenn. and attended the Family Practice Residency Program at University of Pittsburg Medical Center. He also attended University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health Masters in Public Health Program Pittsburgh, Pa.

lthough originally a big-city girl, Dr. Zoe Donaldson, B.S., D.V. D.V.M, V M loves practicing small-town veterinary medicine in V. Dem Deming. “I see the patients and clients everywhere. I know more about th their lives and what they are experiencing. It helps me to serve them better,” she explains. Donaldson’s practice, High Desert Veterinary Care, is housed in a state-of-the art facility that her husband Jeremy, a Deming native, built for her when the couple moved from Houston in 2008 so he could take over the family farm. Dr. Donalsdon spent a year in a practice in El Paso while he built her hospital. “We have a progressive hospital,” she says. “We have monitoring equipment, IV pumps, gas anesthesia. I like what we have.” High Desert focuses on small and exotic animals such as reptiles, small mammals and birds. While familiarity is a rewarding part of her practice, Dr. Donaldson says, the need for education is her biggest challenge. Parvovirus, for example, is rampant in the region, and can be prevented with a simple vaccine. “A lot of the time we realize people just didn’t know,

and by the time the dog is in the building it is very sick.� In a hard economic climate, she is grateful to Deming Animal Guardians and the Humane Society for helping to subsidize the services, she adds. Reared in Fort Worth, Dr. Zoe Donaldson earned a degree in marine biology from Texas A&M and worked at Sea World for two years before returning to A&M to earn her D.V.M in 2004.
