THE BLIND DAUGHTER OF SHERIFF PAT GARRET WROTE THE OFFICIAL NEW MEXICO STATE SONG IN LORDSBURG. NOTHING MUCH EVER HAPPENED IN DEMING EXCEPT FOR THAT ONE TIME DAVID W. EKERT WAS PULLED OVER FOR A ‘ROLLING STOP’ AND, BECAUSE OF WHAT THE OFFICERS DESCRIBED AS “CLENCHED BUTTOCKS” THEY RETRIEVED A SEARCH WARRANT AND HAD PERFORMED UPON HIM CAVITY SEARCHES, SURGERIES AND “SEVERAL OTHER MEDICAL PROCEDURES” ONLY TO FIND NO DRUGS ON (OR IN) MR. EKERT’S PERSON

Excerpt from ‘O Fair New Mexico’ The State of New Mexico’s official song

.

Under a sky of azure, where balmy breezes blow,

Kissed by the golden sunshine, is Nuevo México.

Home of the Montezuma, with fiery hearts a glow ,

State of the deeds historic, is Nuevo México.

O fair New Mexico, we love, we love you so

Our hearts with pride o’erflow , no matter where we go,

O fair New Mexico, we love, we love you so,

The grandest state to know, New Mexico.

The distance from Deming to Lordsburg is 59.8 miles

“But,” Iktomi said as he continued to spin his web, “in each time of life there are many forces – some good and some bad. If you listen to the good forces, they will steer you in the right direction. But, if you listen to the bad forces, they will hurt you and steer you in the wrong direction.
