Watching for Rain
Here we are at the end of June and it has been hot, dry and
windy. Let's pray for our monsoons to arrive on time and give
us some relief!
I found a new place and will be moving in late July or so.
Right after posting in the June Gazette of my need, I found
a wonderful new landlord. The house is a great old adobe in
Silver City that needs some TLC but my new landlord is working
with me to bring it up to date a bit. (It's a good thing I
have some time in July to pack and move so I can be ready for
the September issue.)
The closing date for the September Gazette will be August
19. Labor Day weekend is very early this year, on September
1st, meaning the weekend begins August 29, so I'll be sure
and get Gazettes delivered early. Remember to submit your September
and October events for this Sept. issue. NOTE:
The correct date for the Pie Town Pie Festival
is Sept 13; the date
listed in the PRINT edition of the July/August Gazette is incorrect!
Summertime is in full swing, and Independence Weekend is upon
us. This Gazette features 4th
of July celebrations by community,
and the regular July and August calendars begin on page 27
of this issue. (Yes, we have a few color pages again this issue:

Just when you think you've lived in New Mexico and know everything
about the weather . . . earthquake! On Saturday night, June
28, about 11:00 PM New Mexico time, an earthquake measuring
5.2 on the Richter scale took place northwest of Lordsburg.
That night I had gone to sleep early, and it being a hot night,
had the AC on. I was not quite in deep sleep and the pictures
on the wall (and the wall) began vibrating. At first thought
I had dreamed it, but next morning on Facebook, many local
comments were posted. Wow, earth tremors in New Mexico.
Ongoing appreciation to our advertisers who support the paper
and keep the Glenwood Gazette coming to 8,000 readers each
month! Be sure to tell your friends who don't live in Gazette
delivery regions that they can view the calendar AND pages

Have a great 4th of July and enjoy many summer road trips!
