Picture yourself 260 feet off the ground, strapped in with safety harnesses, working in the out-of-doors with a GREAT view AND earning LOTs of money in your base paycheck, plus overtime, often plus per diem near or in central New Mexico working on 21st-century wind turbines.
Wind turbines, “four blades and a tail”, have been hard at work in central New Mexico for a long time -- since the 1850s - 1870s -- pumping water for livestock. Later, small wind-powered electrical generators between 5 kW and 25 kW also were used to light up homesteads, ranch houses and mines as late as the 1930s, when the Rural Electrification Administration (REA) created New Mexico rural electric Coops to bring electricity to more isolated rural communities. Just like electricity in the cities.
Today, New Mexico has 30 wind farms: 20 in operation, 4 under construction and 6 in earlier stages of development. In 2018, with several thousand towers, New Mexico became known as the fastest-growing producer of wind energy in the United States, attempting to meet its 435 billion KWH annual wind estimated potential. More farms are coming! New or old, wind turbines, or the wind farms they now populate, have lots of moving parts and need regular monitoring and maintenance.
Think about entering career-technical education (CTE) and the New Mexico Center for Wind Energy Excellence at Mesalands Community College in Tucumcari. An Operations & Maintenance Technician (Tech) is needed for every 10-15 turbines on a wind farm. Hundreds of technicians are now needed for New Mexico’s 2nd fastest-growing job. In deference to our agricultural history, the wind tech workforce is sometimes called “wind cowgirls or cowboys”. Where will the 17 wind energy companies now operating in New Mexico find this highly trained workforce? Mesalands and Region 9 CTE has the training program for you or for someone you know. Now.
You can start Wind Tech training in high school as a dual credit Junior or Senior student. Or when you’ve finished high school or earned your GED. Or even later, when you want to start a second or third career. The wind industry needs everybody! Picture yourself on that tower high in the sky. Start now! Call Andy Swapp at (435) 463-2288 for more information and to obtain enrollment assistance.

Dementia/Alzheimers Support Group meets twice a month at 1 pm in the ENMU Conference Room. This group is for caregivers, potential caregivers and others interested in learning about these illnesses in order to understand them and then act as teachers to others. It is clear to those of us who attend that planning ahead makes all the difference, and that all too often we wait until a crisis occurs to seek help. Thank you for helping us get the word out and being supportive to those in our communities that are caregivers in need of support. Clara Farah.

ISLE OF SKY NURSERY in White Oaks has a large selection of native and locally adapted fruit trees, berry varieties, hardy roses, and herbs. I specialize in dwarf heirloom apple trees.
Isle of Sky Nursery is the only nursery in New Mexico to offer the new state-of-the-art organic fertilizer Sigma Biosphere. I have a number of formulas specifically targeted for maximum production for all plant types.
The dormant season is the best time to plant fruit trees and berry bushes. I carry Cocoloco potting soil by Fox Farm, my recommended choice for container growing.
Also, check out White Oaks’ Woodworking’s display of plant container stands and their top bar beehive (bees not included).
If you’re looking for a unique gift for someone you love,
Isle of Sky gift certificates are the answer.
