Thanks! Maybe we can meet.

Just returned from the horse races. I like horse racing but it's boring to wait between races.

Also went to Family Dollar here and struck up a conversation with 3 ladies. One invited me to Christ Community Church here. It's non denominational and I might show up tomorrow.

Hi Joqua,

No, that one was taken over years ago by Loretta and called La Brewja. She closed that down a few months ago. And I miss that one.

No, this is one just off 380 and Meechem (sorry don't remember the road number) as you come in from Ruidoso on the right. She used to have a trailer she'd move around, but now has a permanent shop-at least it was last time I went to Mercantile for feed. (Hey haven't been back for a while and to afford living in Alto you have to work elsewhere-and in my case it's China). My wife loves her and her place-is it Calamity Jane's, or am I thinking about the place that used to be close to the high school before it closed down?

Guys, sorry my memory is so bad here, but as I only get the privilege of being back in the clean air and the mountains a limited time of the year, my details are not so great. Let it suffice to say I really envy you guys who can live there year round, and I hope you don't mind me throwing my 2cents in there from time to time. Certainly not an expert on the area, but thanks to all your help it makes me think of home, sitting on the deck with our black lab watching the sunset over SB, etc. Please forgive my ramblings (but as you can tell I miss home..

NM-48. I usually pay little attention to these businesses unless I'm specifically looking for them. I do patronize Chango's when the owner is the one actually doing the chef work - it's also at the same intersection (US-380/NM-48). His stuff is expensive being that he's a true artisan/artist with both food and in other art forms.

And like elsewhere in the area, Capitan has seen a number of eateries come and go in recent years.

I tried going there with a friend not long ago and it wasn't open - and that was a Saturday. You may also know that the old standby OUTPOST closed down about a year ago when the owners finally gave up the ghost. Carrizozo, as I'm sure you know, has suffered worse than some other small communities (IMO) since the bubble burst.

I don't see it as rambling. I see it as you expressing yourself for the clean air and mountains. Nothing wrong with that.

I went to the Christ Community Church this morning and even though it's a bit different than what I've been used to going to, (went to the Baptist church in Timberon) I met some nice people and the pastor preached a good sermon. It was non denomenational so that's a huge difference from the Baptist church. Good way to meet people, do something good for the community. I'll probably go back but I'll check out a few other churches in the area too.

I don't know if you would want to travel to Alto or not but "Church Out of Church" (non-denominational) meets at the Flying J Ranch (weekend entertainment venue). I know several people who have been going there since it first began and seem to like it.

Yep, thanks. That was one of the ones on my list to check out. It's only 10-15 minutes from my house.

Shelters for evacuees have been set up at First Baptist Church on Country Club, Community Methodist Church, Senior Center at Ruidoso Downs, Church of Christ on Sudderth and Trinity Baptist Church in Capitan.

Fire Behavior: Active fire behavior with flame lengths of 150 feet were observant over night. Red flag conditions in effect today.

Resources: Resources from the Forest Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), New Mexico State Forestry, Lincoln County Volunteer Fire Departments and Ruidoso Downs Fire and area volunteer departments have responded. Currently ordered 9-T1 hand crews, 36-Engines, 3 Helicopters, 7-water tenders, 2 air tankers with an additional 3 on order and will be available through out the day. Approximately 350 personnel are expected to be on the fire tomorrow.

Smoke from the fire is impacting the community of Ruidoso and surrounding areas so please take precautions if you have any health or breathing issues.
###




Situation: The fire is burning in the Lincoln National Forest NW of Ski Apache. The fire has crossed NM Hwy 48. An estimated 15-20 structures have been damaged or destroyed, however officials have not had an opportunity do conduct a formal damage assessment. The primary goal today is to establish an anchor point to work from. A Type I Incident Management Team (Joe Reinarz, IC) has been ordered and will be arriving today.
