CREATIVE AGING MEETINGS
OCTOBER 10, 2018
CONTACT PERSON: CLARA FARAH
ARTICLE WRITER: HOLLY BRADEN
Creative Aging’s September 28th meeting at Eastern New Mexico University – Ruidoso was a discussion of what is means to be mortal and how to die well.
David Gerke and Dr. Clara Farah were the presenters and discussed Atul Gawande’s
book Being Mortal. Three points were emphasized during the meeting. To know how
someone wants to die, you need to ask him or her, then you need to respect those
wishes. The ultimate goal is not a good death but a good life all the way to the end.
What medicine can do often runs counter to what should be done. It is important to
have a strong advocate during the end of life period. Small groups discussed how one
should die then the 30 attendees came back together to share their ideas.
The next Creative Aging meeting will be held October 19th at 10:00 a.m. at ENMU-Ruidoso with a social hour beginning at 9:00 a.m. Refreshments will be served. The
topic for discussion will be the new transportation system in Lincoln County. Cecile
Kinnan will facilitate the meeting. Joe Hardin representing Z- Tran will present as will
Dave Tomlin and Anthony Montes. The new county transportation system is up and
running in Ruidoso and Ruidoso Downs. Part of the discussion during this meeting will
be ways of expanding the coverage area. Another area of discussion will be attracting
drivers with the necessary commercial driver’s license.
Creative Aging meetings are open to everyone and address topics of concern to our
aging population. For more information contact Dr. Clara Farah at 575-973-7835

come learn with Sid Goodloe
“Developing a Livestock &
Wildland Ethic in Lincoln County
Over a Century”
For 62 years, Sid Goodloe has been owner-operator of the Carrizo Valley Ranch, 19 miles North of Capitan, NM.
Sid and Cheryl Goodloe began implementing what was to become
Holistic Planned Grazing in the late 1960s. Carrizo Valley Ranch
began to divide paddocks, not using the cell approach, but by
topography and water availability, and began noticing a general
improvement in range condition and biodiversity.
Sid’s primary goal was to grow as much grass as the rain would
allow and control erosion. This led to the realization that there were
too many invading trees that were not only suppressing grass growth,
but causing sheet and gully erosion. It has taken 50 years to achieve
that objective or goal and now the Goodloes are able to keep much
of the rain that falls on the ranch—on the ranch!
The Goodloes have used a wide variety of vegetation manipulation
methods to accomplish their landscape goal and sustain what they
want to produce. They have included: chaining; dozing and piling;
seeding; fire; hand grubbing; and herbicide. Their philosophy is to
defer the riparian area during the growing season and flash graze
during the dormant season. A lush riparian zone is also attractive to
all forms of wildlife, and when combining that with uplands in near
climax condition, fee hunting becomes a major player in the overall
profitability of the ranch.
Light refreshments will be provided following the presentation.
