6 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, AUGUST 15. 2014 Glenwood Gazette publisher, Gale Moore, is found dead in her home By BENJAMIN FISHER/Silver City Daily Press Staff Gale Moore, editor and pub- lisher of the Glenwood Gazette, was found dead Friday morning at her home. Moore ran nearly every as- pect of the Glenwood Gazette, a monthly focused on rural commu- nities in the Southwest that didn't fall under other media cov- erage. She also found time to or- ganize the annual Glenwood Dutch Oven Cook-off, which draws hundreds of visitors to the small, rural community every year. Many friends and colleagues throughout southwestern New Mexico remember her fondly. Moore had i:eportedly made dinner plans with a good friend for Thursday evening. When she didn't arrive, her friend was wor- ried and went to Moore's house on the Western New Mexico Uni- versity campus Friday morning. There, she found her friend dead. The Silver City Police Depart- ment responded to the scene then deferred to WNMU Campus Po- lice, in whose jurisdiction the house stood. Investigators said Moore appeared to have died of natural causes. Moore's remains were sent to the Office of Medi- cal Investigations only because her death was unattended. The house stands next door Grant County Art Guild welcomes new members Submitted by GCAGISilver City The Grant County Art Guild is pleased to welcome two new local artists to their membership. Rita Sherwood, a well-known lo- cal artist and art instructor, is our most re- cent new member. Rita dem- onstrates versatility, in her work, painting in many different media. She has partici- pated in local art competitions, including the guild's annual Purchase Prize Award Exhibit and has a well-de- served history of receiving the prize ribbons from the show judges. The guild also welcomes oil painter Karen Danhauer. Her beautiful paintings will be a meaningful addition to the guild's Pinos Altos Art Gallery and as well as guild shows in other venues. The Grant County Art Guild is a nonprofit organization of lo- cal artists and crafters who show Fabric Art "Jan's Pincushion" by Jan Wagner. their work seasonably at the Pinos Altos Art Gallery located in the historic Hearst Church. The fea- tured artist for Friday, August 15, and Saturday, August 16, is pen and ink artist Jerry Howell. Fab- ric artist and crafter Jan Wagner will be the fea- tured artist on Sunday, August 17. Both of these mem- ber artists will have special dis- plays of their latest work. Some people come to the gallery to see the historically significant old building, while others come to see the gathering of some of the best in local art and handcrafted items. All are wel- come, browsers and shoppers, as well as history buffs. There is never an admission fee. The Pinos Altos Art Gallery is open from 10 a.m. till 5 p.m. on Fri- day, Saturday, Sunday and ma- jor holidays through October 5. For more information see to WNMU President Joseph Shepard's own and he remem- bered his late neighbor fondly. "She was a fantastic neigh- bor,' he said, "and she was more dedicated to her community than almost anyone.' In her more than a decade in Grant County, Moore touched many lives, and was particularly close with Marcia Carlson, former owner of Java the Hut coffee house. "I still can't come to terms with it,' Carlson said. "There isn't anything in the world that she wouldn't do for me or I for her. There's going to be a hole in my heart for her.' Carlson said that she and Moore were fellow members of the Grant County Copper Cowbelles for many years. The Cowbelles will be meeting today to celebrate Moore and her contributions to their group and community. Moore first published the Gazette in April 2000, according to the website, and from there grew the paper in pages and read- ership to a monthly chronicle of rural life that many came to de- pend on. "She concocted the idea of the Glenwood Gazette to pro- mote and preserve rural life in the Southwest,' said Mary Alice Murphy, owner and editor of the Grant County Beat, who also wrote two monthly pieces for the Gazette. " She felt that it was im- portant to serve those people.' Murphy pointed out that while the name suggests other- wise, the Glenwood Gazette wasn't just a paper for that com- munity. She said the paper made its way everywhere from eastern Arizona to western Texas, often carried by Moore herself. "She filled a niche that needed filling,' Murphy said. Outside of their working re- lationship, Murphy said she'd miss Moore personally as well. "She was completely genu- ine; she had no pretention,' she said. " She touched a lot of people who will miss her.' Benjamin Fisher may be reached at bfisher@ silvercitydailypress, net.

SENTRY FINANCE 716 S, Main Street * Lordsburg, NM Call today/ 575-542- Preservation Albuquerque Rail Yards are New Mexico's newest historic district; Raton historic district expanded Santa Fe -- The largest his- toric industrial complex in New Mexico has been designated a state historic district, the New Mexico Historic Preservation Di- vision (HPD), Department of Cul- tural Affairs announced August 11. The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Locomotive Shops , which form the crux of Albuquerque's Rail Yards estab= lished in 1880, were listed in the State Register of Cultural Prop- erties as an historic district by the Cultural Properties Review Com- mittee on August 8. Because of the property's historical and ar- chitectural significance, the com- mittee forwarded the nomination to the National Park Service as a potential National Register of Historic Places listing. "The crucial role these buildings and structures played in transportation, industry and Albuquerque's social history from 1914 to 1956, and the ar- chitectural and engineering sig- nificance of the Locomotive Shops puts this district at the lo- cal and state levels of historical significance," said Jeff Pappas, State Historic Preservation Of- ricer and Director of HPD. As one of only four AT&SF division points west of the Mis- sissippi River, the Albuquerque shops were an integral part of the national railway system. The machine shop serviced simulta- neously as many as 40 steam lo- comotives suspended on massive bridge cranes. Locomotives were loaded on a turntable that still exists within a 113,000 square foot foundation, and directed into one of 35 covered stalls for servicing. The Rail Yard estab- lished Albuquerque as a transpor- tation hub and was the city's larg- est employer through World War II, providing jobs to a quarter of its workforce or 1,500 people during peak years. After 1956, when the last steam locomotive was phased out in favor of diesel-powered en- gines that required less mainte- nance, jobs began to disappear. The grand, multi-storied machine shop and the boiler shop--two of the earliest examples of glass cur- tain-wall construction in the U.S.--fell into disuse by the late 1970s and have been largely va- cant since. "They were the largest build- ings in Albuquerque," Steven Moffson, HPD's State and Na- tional Register coordinator said of the two buildings. "They are notable for their severe appear- ance but classic proportions." They are considered excel- lent examples of the Romanesque Revival and Stripped Classicism architectural styles. In all, 21 of 25 buildings, structures and a site are designated as historic on a 27- acre parcel of land in downtown Albuquerque. "This is a big day for us," said Maryellen Hennessy, a senior planner with the City Of Albu- querque, at the meeting. "The monumental scale of the property will make for a challenging rede- velopment, but we see it as a ma- jor employer again in Albuquer- que." The city purchased the prop- erty in 2007 to preserve and re- develop it. Papers signed by Mayor Richard Berry in late July allow redevelopment plans in- volving a combination of new businesses, housing and events to begin. The city recently invested $1 million in the Rail Yard's his- toric Blacksmith Shop for a Sun- day farmer's market and other events. The city hired consultant William A. Dodge to help develop and draft the nomination with Hennessy, senior planner Petra Morris and former senior planner Ed Boles. Parts of the nomina- tion were based on an earlier draft by University of New Mexico School of Architecture and Plan- ning professor Chris Wilson. Listing a property in the State Register makes it eligible for state historic preservation tax credits of up to $25,000. If listed in the National Register, devel- opers would be eligible for a 20- percent credit with no credit cap that has been used in New Mexico to help finance multi-million- dollar redevelopments of historic buildings in Clovis, Las Vegas and Albuquerque where Old Al- buquerque High School, Hotel Parq Central and Hotel Andaluz are examples. Raton Historic District The committee also ex- panded the Raton Downtown Historic District by increasing its northern and southern bound- aries, and by including buildings constructed through 1966 as con- tributing to the district. The his- toric district originally estab- lished in 1977 included build- ings constructed between 1880 and 1927. Twenty additional buildings in the enlarged district are con- sidered historic for a total of 78. They are completed in many ar- chitectural styles including late Victorian, Italianate, Queen Anne, Commercial, Art Deco and now Modern. A mining town located at the foot of Raton Pass, Raton sprang up alongside the AT&SF Rail- road. Expansion of the historic districts was sponsored by the City of Raton, the local MainStreet organization and New Mexico MainStreet. Show me the way By DR. HOSEZELL BLASH/ Animas As requested by some read- ers, I am supplying a poem from my "poetic expres- sions". Show Me The Way The world is full of people Who like to tell you what to do. But they need to "shining examples" That goes for me as well as for you. It's not so important as to what you say As it is to what you do. I'm not so much in the "watching business" But God keeps his eyes on you. Don't draw me a road map to heaven When your life could best show the way. I have trouble in following direc- tions, But when you "show me" I can easily find my way. A reader can read a book And tell you what it says, But when a person can't just show you how to do it It's more convincing in many ways!
