2 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, JANUARY 15 2010 Amanda Silva pushes her son, Max, across the finish line. Former Lordsburg resident paying it forward Earlier this month, more than 200 peopl9 gathered 'in Alamogordo tb participate in the Zack Track, a special event held m the name of Zachary Barnes, a 6-year-old boy who lost his life to cerebral palsy. Among those participating in the event were Amanda Arredondo Silva, for- merly of Lordsburg. The 200 people who partici- pated in the 10k, 5k. 2k or lk events helped to raise money in support of the Stephen J. Wampler Foundation for improving.disable children's lives. Silva took part in the event with her 22-month-old son, Max, who has a rare genetic disorder. He is the second of three people in the world to be discovered with the condition. According to a report in the Alamogordo Daily.News. Silva took part in the event after a wheelchair was donated to her son, despite her reluctance to use one. Once he was in the chair. however, she said the benefits were evident, allowing young Max to do things he couldn't have done before. The chair Max received had belonged to Zachary Barnes. "It was very special." Silva. said. "They didn't just give him a chair. They gave him the abil- ity to sit up and .get stronger." When Mfix gets his fitted chai.r, the Silvas will donate Zach's chair to someone else who needs it, Silva said. But whoever UPCOMING EVENTS I am a determined, single, 42-year-young lifelong resident of Lordsburg. 1 am very concerned with the present trend of business closures and the overall economic state of our city, One of my main objectives is to begin running this city" as a business. Attraction to major industry is of utmost importance .for both continua population- increase, as well as retention The city has seen some interesi:;from potntially great ventures that, in my eshntaholl,"have not been pursued v gorous y. Thi city has so much to offer with respect to natural resources and links to the outside world--railroad lines, Interstate 10, airport access and power transmission lines--all Witlin a few miles. Not to mention.the friendly people and great weather! Of great concern is our housing issue, both with government personnel and local citizens. This is high on my agenda and will be o priority. My dedication and concern for my hometown, business experience and my great relationship with my fellow Lordsburgites qualifies me as an ideal candidate for Mayor, gets it will have to agree to do- nate it forward when they are done with it. The event surpassed its fundraising goal and collected $6.500 for the Wampler Foun- dation. Silva and her husband. Ralph. of Animus. live in Alamogordo with their three children. Vanessa. Little Ralph and baby Max. Amanda Silva is the daughter of David and Sherriiyn Arredondo of Lordsburg. "'Blessings are where they find us. and rarely involve a pot of gold," says proud grand- mother Sherrilyn. "A blessing given requires acceptance and once accepted, requires owning the blessing, appreciating the" blessing, and developing and usifag that blessing to its fullest potential. All that comes after are future blessings and they all require that they be paid for- ward to. enhance others."
