Yes I do! In fact I saw the Chief buy several rose bushes and planting soil wit his own money and then on his day off planted them. He has also taken the time to attend several clean ups and pitch in. So in my eyes he did more then your negative comment. Too bad you can't see the good. I wish you well

Tularosa is such a beautiful place and the people we have met since we arrived six months ago are wonderful and dedicated, talented individuals. Mayor Cordova, Trustee Garcia, and Tularosa Village staff have stepped up to show their support which means they do "walk their talk".
It is with great pleasure that Robin and I take time from our daily activities to give something back to the village we now call home. All we can hope for is that we are welcomed and accepted as good neighbors who care for our community.
It all too easy to sit in the background, critize, complain or find fault with the situation. The real challenge which reaps the most rewards personally and for the community is to get up, get with your neighbors and do something, anything, to make Tularosa better.
That is what this is all about..."Making beautiful better".
Thanks for listening.

Perhaps his ex-wife should get off her lazy keester and get a JOB? Just a guess, I also have an X.

I would love to see Tularosa become beautiful. Planting some roses isn't going to do it though. We need some real code enforcement, there is a house on Bookout that isn't even really a house, looks like a bunch of junk piled up with electricity. And then there is a single wide (I believe it is purple) attached to an old adobe house on Higuera with trash all around it. It amazes me that someone that doesn't mow their lawn and lives next door to one of the originals will get a ticket telling them to clean up their yard, then someone else who is one of the originals can just completely trash their place and no one seems to care.

I for one will be glad when I have company come over and I don't have to say "Please excuse the eclectic neighborhood." I don't mind the differences in taste, but trash is unacceptable. Time to start shutting these homes down if they can't or won't fix them up.

I was once a resident of Tularosa and in my eyes it has always been beautiful and I am sure " Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". The people of this village was nothing but kind to me and went of their to be friendly. There is always a sour grape among the pod.

To common sense from Taos,I take great pride in my home in Tularosa,granted some do not respect their property and let it go.
I for one choose to live here and when I have company,they come to see me and not the residential
conditions,more power to you if you opt to live in
"Barter Town"(Taos),until you achieve some degree of personal substance,you are in the right location.

I personally have seen the code enforcement in action. Even when it was I who was ticketed. All I had to do was chop my weeds in a time frame that was given. I didnt and was ticketed now I know better and will comply. I am not complaining about the others who are in violation I understand it takes time to check it out and get it right. Thanks Chief for straigteneing me out without a stiff penalty.
