“You couldn’t pick a better industry to concentrate on.”
Energy was the topic for Jim Peach. His audience was the interim Economic and Rural Development Committee.
The Aug. 2 meeting was in Grants at the Cibola County Convention Center, which doubles as the county office building. Or maybe the county offices double as the convention center. Unlike the committee’s July meeting in Santa Rosa, a sign on the door said the committee was inside.
Peach spoke “from an economist’s perspective,” a good thing since he is a New Mexico State University economist. His focus was uranium, the appropriate emphasis given Grants’ location in the heart of the Grants Uranium Belt.
A thorough uranium review also came from John Bemis, secretary-designate of the Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department.
The afternoon uranium presentations attracted media, even Albuquerque TV station KOB, and brought the audience to about 35. No fireworks appeared and KOB’s Stuart Dyson soon disappeared.
