New Coach for New Mexico, water rights and stuff….

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 03-04-2013


Coach Neal was selected to lead the New Mexico Lobo basketball team for a while, six years I think. The players, alumi and supporters really like Craig Neal whose nickname is Noodles. They say the nick name is from his long, slender build while playing basketball for Georgia Tech. He has to have a good dispostion to allow his players to call him that, but now that Coach Alford is gone Noodles becomes “Coach” and that will become his new name….Trust me on that…

Water rights down in southeastern New Mexico is becoming a battle between Carlsbad on the one hand and Artesia and Roswell on the other. Carlsbad being further south of the other two cities, claims that the pumping from the underground reserviors are pulling water from the Pecos River. The Pecos is the only source of water for the Carlsbad Irrigation district and Roswell and Artesia uses pumps for irrigation. Carlsbad is sueing the two farming community in those cities to stop using the pumps. Man that can turn nasty in a heart beat. It is very similar to what Texas is saying about users in Southwestern New Mexico pumping water from underground in the Rio Grande River valley.. I hope the Lord will smile on New Mexico and send us a little more rain this year. I lot more will be ok.

I really appreciate all of you who have visited this web site and read some of my stuff. You don’t comment much about it but my cpanel records the visits you make…It does not idenify you but it does tell me the area you are from and records each visit. In 2012 I had over 290,000 hits. Already, in the three months of 2013. I have had over 100,000 hits. Thank you so much and keep coming back to see me.

Coach Neal has at least one good thing in his hip pocket. He is a “rambling wreck from Georgia Tech”. That is a sure mark of success. At Georgia Tech, he was trained to turn “rambling wrecks” into shining new convertibles. He is equipped to do it for the Loboes. The only problem might be that, after he successfully converts his first wreck, he will be trotting off to another UCLA with an even fancier salary and with other worlds to conquer, but that is what his fantastic training at Georgia Tech was all about.

In the desert southwest, water rights law is the next area of the law besides race and immigration law that one can go into for the greatest chance of becoming a dead martyr. The next step is to learn of martyrdom killings in Carlsbad of water rights lawyers that find themselves on the wrong side of the law in force in this time of drought.

Now the administrator of this site has concrete evidence of the chief past time of the sorricest generation, that is, surfing the internet without a paddle but with only a brainless mouse with no intention of expressing any opinion, much less a smart one.

By the way, the pural of Lobo is Lobos not Loboes as you always spelled it. Just thought I would point that out to you. Thanks, Pete

“Loboes” is not a mispelling. It was a typo, which, I guess, is also included under etc. I try to proof read all of my stuff, but I am sometime in a very big hurry. After all, I am so busy working as a government employee for state government. I must earn all that tax money from the masses. Sometimes it is difficult when one is working for/with people whose jobs are secure and who don’t have to worry about making payroll on a daily/weekly basis.
