Recently I had an opportunity to visit with a gentleman from Catron County. The topic was what is happening in his part of the world.
“Some ranching,” my informant said. The saw mills are gone, thanks to the spotted owl and the environmentalists.
Subdivisions are the other development, he said. Some attract older people. Subdivisions are fine, he said, but he wonders about an older person building a Catron County home. Health care availability is modest, a problem he knows well, being equipped with a small oxygen tank.
