"We're at a nice location, right off the Interstate (10) exit," he explained. "We have plenty of parking spaces."

****

Yes, commercially the Truck stop is in a 'nice location", but the surrounding area is a disgusting, filthy, eyesore that is a true embarrassement to Deming and its residents.

The street looks right out of Palomas. Hell, Palomas streets (thanks to US money) now look better than this part of Spruce. Originally, the Spruce street improvements were to go all the way to the the truck stop. Now that it has reopened, will the improvements be made Rick McInturff and Company? Or just excuses as usual?

Homeless seem to control the area as well. Where are the local enforcement agencies to see these useless drifters out of the area?

The parking lot areas must be paved. Use your profits when you make them to improve the lot. Deming has enough dirt, we do not need it in town.

Next we have that third world garbage dump of a trailer park there where apparently no code enfocement has ever taken place. I mean how f'ing hard is it to clean up a blighted area in a town this small? If major cities can do it with their land areas, surely Deming can get off its a s s and improve this stretch of Deming which is says to all how venture off the highway: welcome to a third-world dump where the lack of pride is evident by our refusal to clean up our town for you.

Glad the stop is open again, now get busy, clean out the filthy unpainted buildings and dirt roads and make Deming proud.

I hear what you are saying. But what is funny about your comment is that the 'negativity' is absolutely necessary in a town like Deming. If the residents do not speak up and demand that our tax dollars are used to clean up Deming's streets this town will continue to lose. Already there has been a lot of improvements because of the negativity. Si Senor is a good example of what needs to happen to all the businesss and buildings on Pine/Spruce/Gold/Silver. Yes, it does cost money which most of us do not have. But with all the drug dealing going on in the town, you would think they would use some of that money to make the town shine.

I am very glad to see the truck stop open again. Now truck drivers will have some where to park other than in the Walmart parking lot, and they will have most everything they need right there. I agree that there are alot of buildings in that area that need something done with them. The truck stop parking lot needs to be paved as well as that section of 12th street needs to be fixed.

True, but the Deming terminal has a neverending supply of lot lizards from the trailer park next door, Deming will win!

The Truck Stop should be responsible for making their own property more presentable, as is the trailer park close by. If they don't take care of it this is perfect for the Boot Camp that still should exist, in just picking up trash/litter it just might make that end of town look better. For those who don't yet know where the Truck Stop is, it's at the west end of town, can't miss the big sign.

I once took a group of 9th graders around that area of town to clean up litter for a fundraiser. We cleaned from the truck stop to Walmart along the frontage road, plus the area surrounding the truck stop parking lot. The county pays (or used to pay) civic groups to do that as a fundraiser. I thought it was a great use of funds to clean up the community, help kids (or other community members) take pride and ownership of their community, and give back to a non-profit, who needs it. Hopefully, they can continue this and other inventive ways to get kids involved in improving the community.

The mobile home park is in the process of being cleaned up. The entire area looks alot better than it used to. I think you should go and look at what you are talking about and take note that the yards are pretty clean and the weeds are down. Some of the structures have been removed.''Third world dump'' I hope you always have a nice home to live in. This mobile park may not be what you like , however it is home to many who would other wise be living on the street or in an alley or under a bridge. Get over your self. If you donot like what you see then you go fix it. some of these people cannot afford paint.

Anyone comment on the rumored impending bankruptcy of the new Savoy Truck Stop? If true, then the Deming Truck Stop might benefit but the local economy as a whole might suffer.
