Getting Lost... Can Be a Good Thing!

Tired? Stressed out? Bored? In the ol' "There's nothing to do" mode? Well the Maze: at La Union is just the ticket to get you pumped up. Pumped up? Yes, that's from all the laughing you will be doing as you try your luck at the in's and out's of the 17-acre cornfield maze.

The air is fresh and what better way to get back to nature than to come on out to the Upper Valley and see the green fields, the trees just starting to turn to their autumn colors. And don't forget about the MAZE.

Water Troubles Brewing in Upper Valley.

Both Sunland Park and Doña County want to provide water and sewage to the proposed development along the border between Santa Teresa, NM and San Jeronimo, Chihuahua, Mexico. Recent hearings were held in Las Cruces, NM ordered by Federal Magistrate Judge Karen B. Molzen, who also imposed a gag order.
