Flood Clean-up in Ruidoso – news and video links

by Mary Weaver on August 5, 2008

Just a brief update on cleanup and rebuilding efforts in Ruidoso, after last weekend’s flood that hit the river areas of Upper Canyon, Hwy 70 campgrounds / RV parks, and the Ruidoso Downs Racetrack. Property owners who can provide proof of residence, have been allowed back in to their homes that were flooded, even though water and sewer services are out in some areas.

See recent news stories on the cleanup efforts at: KOAT – Albuquerque

Officials from FEMA have been working in the Village to assess damage, and determine whether federal aid from FEMA will be available to help with repairs. Residents living in the Upper Canyon and Black Forest remain under a “boil water” advisory. Work to clear debris from the river and bridges is ongoing.

Ruidoso Downs Racetrack resumed operation this past weekend, after flood waters forced a brief closure.

Some campgrounds located north west of Ruidoso, mainly those near Bonito Lake, remain closed while clean up continues. Anyone planning to camp near Bonito Lake, may want to call the Smokey Bear Ranger District Office in Ruidoso at 505-257-4095. Most of the area private campgrounds, as well as those Forest Service areas outside of the Bonito Lake area are open.

For non-threatening emergencies and additional information, residents are encouraged to call the Flood Hotline at (575) 258-3482.

The Damage Assessment Center (Ruidoso Convention Center) is available to assist residents with reporting damage as a direct result of the flooding and is open from 8am-5pm. American Red Cross, City and County Assessors, Region VI Housing Authority, and Department of Agriculture are all present at the Center. The Center can be reached at (575) 937-3719.

Any Case knife can be dated as to its year of manufacture using the tang stamp,
which is located at the bottom of the primary blade. For serious collectors, these high quality knives are well worth the price.

It has a two spring loaded butcher steel for fast and easy sharpening.

First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like
to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how
you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how
to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!

While you don’t want to steal the idea, you’re going to find that you’re going to more
than likely want to take a few ideas from flyers that
you like. It’s way better than going out and job hunting in a place where they don’t
even want to work in. It’s really easy to do, and you will not only accomplish a lot more,
you will also find greater fulfillment in your life.

In addition, with every successful sale that happens, the franchisee
will earn a commission. When you are planning to franchise your business always ensure that you
tie-up with a professional consultant who can help you in developing
the program and the whole structure. However, the program for turning a network into a franchise begins long before
the first advertisements are placed for potential franchisees.

Another effective way to remove viruses is always to flag members, who introduce them within the first place.
Movies of your choice are barely a click away- literally and figuratively.
Effectively if you have an increased pace connection
